There is a naturally white gleam to healthy tooth enamel that many people find aesthetically appealing. People with careers that call for a lot of personal interaction, or who have a very active social life are often concerned with the appearance of their smile.

Yet the natural processes of growing older and simply things like drinking dark beverages can gradually start to dull the appearance of your teeth. As dental stains and other cosmetic imperfections continue to develop it can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance.

In these moments it’s best to turn to a professionally trained dentist like Dr. Ahmad J Akram to better understand your options for whitening your teeth. In many of these cases patients are interested in having dental veneers installed onto the faces of their teeth.

They are thin shells made from either dental grade porcelain or a special composite resin that can be shaded to mimic naturally white tooth enamel.

If you have a tooth with an existing dental filling, dental fracture or an active area of tooth decay he might recommend restoring it porcelain dental crown. A treatment plan like this might also be called for to address a misshapen tooth.
