Chronic dental stains can be caused by the natural processes of aging, excessive consumption of dark beverages, and tobacco use. Once the stains have penetrated your tooth enamel they can be very hard to remove with retail whitening products.
If you have been struggling with chronic dental stains for a long time, Dr. Ajey Varma might recommend fitting each tooth in your smile with a dental veneer. This will replace the face of each tooth with a thin shell created from a special dental porcelain.
If a tooth has been compromised by a cavity, dental fracture, or an existing dental filling, Dr. Ajey Varma might recommend restoring it with a porcelain dental crown. This will completely replace the exterior of the tooth with the same type of dental porcelain used for your dental veneers.
Dr. Ajey Varma will then create an impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to a professional dental lab where dental technicians will create the dental veneers and any other applicable dental work.
To install the dental veneers Dr. Ajey Varma will remove a small amount of tooth enamel from the face of each tooth. This will create sufficient texture to bond the porcelain shell in place with a strong dental adhesive.
