Teeth bleaching is very affordable and a quick solution for those who want to brighten their smile. While you can bleach your teeth at home, it’s always best to have a cosmetic dentist do this for you. Bleaching kits purchased over-the-counter aren’t as effective and use a lower strength whitening material compared to when a top dentist bleaches your teeth.

Dental Bonding

Dental or enamel bonding is an excellent solution for those with heavily stained or chipped teeth. Composite bonding material includes both enamel bonding and white dental fillings. The bonding material is custom fit and molded to your teeth, meaning that your dentist can shape it in a way that’s ideal for you. If you want a long-term solution, however, veneers are still the gold standard. Bondings typically stain after a few years while veneers in theory cannot stain.


Dental veneers have been a popular cosmetic dental procedure for decades. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over the surface of your teeth. If you have stained teeth that won’t lighten with bleaching or chipped front teeth, then this process may be ideal for you.

The process begins by a cosmetic dentist removing roughly .5-1mm of tooth structure from ONLY the front surface of your teeth, an intraoral scan is then taken to capture the current position of your teeth accurately. You will be given customized temporary veneers until your permanent  veneers are delicately created.


Adults, not just teenagers, should be concerned about having correctly aligned teeth. Invisalign aligners are an excellent option for anyone because you can’t see them, unlike braces. Properly aligned teeth will always remain healthier compared to misaligned teeth. When teeth are aligned properly, the surrounding tissues are healthier leading to a more stable smile.

Enamel MicroAbrasion

Enamel micro-abrasion helps with surface discoloration. Pumice (a fine powder) and other solutions in combination with a micro-abrasion machine can remove surface-level stains. Drinking coffee, wine, and soda stains the teeth, along with smoking tobacco products. This technique is also great for removing brown stains on teeth.
