Teeth Whitening vs. Porcelain Veneers

Cosmetic therapies are certainly in great demand – not only can they boost confidence by providing a dazzling new smile, some can provide near-instant results. 

But, when it comes to improving the appearance of your smile, what factors come into play when deciding between two popular options? When choosing between porcelain veneers and teeth whitening, it is important for your dentist to understand the patient’s ultimate desired look. During your consultation with the dentist, it is important to share any concerns and ask questions to obtain the best results. The dentist will educate you as to what procedures or treatments can be done and give you a clear picture of what you can expect from each and allow you to make the best-informed decisions for your dental plan.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening treatment is by far the most popular cosmetic therapy in the United States today. Commonly referred to as “bleaching” or “whitening”, it is the process of removing stains from the surface (enamel) of teeth. When done under the supervision of a dentist, the process safely lightens teeth several shades. Your dentist will provide tips to care for teeth and suggest types of food or drink to avoid to help maintain your brighter smile.

Porcelain Veneers

Another option for altering the appearance of your smile is the use of porcelain veneers. Depending on the patient’s cosmetic need veneers will disguise all traces of stains or discoloration and will hide minor misalignment concerns, chips, breaks or unwanted gaps.

Unlike bleaching methods, veneers will only affect the patient’s ‘smile zone”, the teeth visible when smiling. Once again, a consultation with the dentist will help determine what kind of cosmetic treatment will work best to improve the patient’s smile.
