Tooth Whitening Isn’t Your Only Option

Tooth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the world with billions of dollars spent on both over the counter and professional tooth whitening products. However, it’s important to remember that not everyone will see a brighter smile with tooth whitening.

According to Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills, those strips, gels, rinses, trays and pastes won’t do you any good if you have teeth that have been previously restored. You also won’t have any luck if you have severe interior staining from too much fluoride as a child or from antibiotic use.

Tooth Whitening Alternatives

Dr. Ringer, past president and an Accredited Fellow with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry offers several alternatives to professional teeth whitening, and although your cosmetic dentist in Anaheim Hills also provides professional tooth whitening, he is experienced and a preferred provider of porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental bonding and dental implants.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

The second most affordable cosmetic dental treatment, with professional tooth whitening being the first, cosmetic dental bonding is a treatment that covers stains, and repairs chips and cracks.

Because the bonding material can be molded and sculpted into shape, it is a great choice and will greatly enhance your smile. Just be aware that cosmetic dental bonding won’t last forever and will stain easier than porcelain veneers.

Completed in a single dental appointment, cosmetic dental bonding is applied directly to the tooth or teeth before being molded into the desired shape. Once satisfied, Dr. Ringer and his team will bond the material into place with a laser or light to cure and harden the dental resin. After hardening, the tooth will be trimmed and polished to match the rest of your smile.

Porcelain Veneers a Great Porcelain Veneers Alternative

The most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment among the rich and famous has changed the smiles of some of your favorite personalities. It’s rare to find someone in Hollywood who hasn’t altered their pearly whites with porcelain veneers.

When porcelain veneers first hit the scene, the only people who could afford them had a disposable income. These days anyone can afford porcelain veneers.

During your first appointment, Dr. Ringer will remove some of your enamel to make way for a natural fit. Because of the removal, your porcelain veneers are permanent. Once removed a mold is made to match your teeth. If your teeth are too unsightly, Dr. Ringer will make temporary veneers while yours are being manufactured.

When your veneers are ready, they will be checked for fit and color before being bonded into place. Dr. Ringer may recommend a third appointment to check your new smile.
