Cosmetic imperfections in your smile can affect your self-esteem and overall quality of life. This could be the result of any number of problems. The specific imperfections that you would like addressed will strongly determine the cosmetic dental treatments your dentist, Dr. Krupakar Reddy Yeturu, recommends.

Many people struggle with stains or dulled tooth enamel. In many of these cases, the stains penetrate deep into the teeth and cannot be removed by the whitening products sold in stores. To improve a smile like this, you will need your dentist to perform a dental bleaching treatment.

Once your teeth have been beautifully whitened, your dentist can then help you identify the underlying cause of the stains to reduce future staining problems. This might also include brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste or using whitening strips that have been approved by the American Dental Association.

Dental veneers are another cosmetic dental option that can improve the appearance of teeth that are suffering from multiple cosmetic imperfections. The porcelain veneers are designed to fit over the face of the teeth in your smile. They can be shaded bright white and can resist future staining problems. This makes it much easier to maintain your while smile between dental cleanings.

If only one or two teeth in your smile have visible imperfections, your dentist might recommend replacing the tooth enamel layer with a porcelain dental crown. This can also be shaded to match the surrounding teeth and will also resist future stains.
