So how do you know which procedure is best for you? Let’s look at why you may want one over the other.
Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option, and can effectively be used to whiten stained smiles. However, where veneers really shine is in covering minor chips and cracks in your teeth. If you have multiple teeth with physical imperfections, then veneers may be your best bet.
Veneers are also great for people with teeth that have deep enamel stains – so deep that whitening can’t fix them. Only Dr. Tim J. Brooks will be able to tell you if your stains are deep enough to warrant veneers.
Over-the-counter whitening is an increasingly popular option, but for some people, the store-ready products aren’t powerful enough. Here at Dr. Tim J Brooks, DDS, Dr. Tim J. Brooks has access to whitening materials far more powerful than what you can buy at the store. This means your smile can be whitened far more quickly, and you won’t have to worry about gum irritation since you’re having your whitening procedure done professionally.
At the end of the day, there’s not a bad decision you can make to whiten your smile. It comes down to personal needs and preference, including the recommendations of your dentist.
