Teeth Whitening Procedures

Stained or discolored teeth can be whitened through a variety of means. Our dentist in ENFIELD, CT considers the extent and cause of discoloration before recommending a treatment procedure. Generally, we find that our patients can achieve brighter smiles through any of the following:

  • Dental bonding
  • Dental veneers
  • Chairside tooth whitening or bleaching
  • At-home tooth whitening using agents prescribed by our dentist

Dental bonding is the chairside application of a tooth-colored composite resin material to the surface of the tooth. Aside from tooth whitening, dental bonding can correct other dental problems, including chips and cracks, and misshapen teeth.

Veneers, on the other hand, are custom porcelain or composite resin shells that are bonded to the tooth surface using dental cement. Veneers cover stained or discolored teeth and last as long as 15 years.

Chairside tooth whitening involves applying a whitening agent such as gel or varnish to the teeth. Our dentist in ENFIELD, CT, XX, will use a custom mouth guard to ensure that all your teeth get sufficient exposure to the whitening agent. If the case of varnish, a brush is used to apply the whitening agent to the teeth.
