The natural aging process and the consumption of dark foods and beverages can gradually alter the appearance of your tooth enamel. This can leave you with teeth that suffer from an unsightly shade of yellow, gray or brown.

A dentist like Dr. Vaibhav Bajaj performs a dental bleaching treatment to safely remove the dental stains. Unfortunately, if you don’t embrace the appropriate lifestyle changes needed to maintain the appearance of your teeth you will likely suffer from further dental stains.  

In a situation like this Dr. Vaibhav Bajaj might recommend installing dental veneers onto the surfaces of your teeth. This special type of dental work is created from either dental porcelain or composite resin to appear just like gleaming white tooth enamel. These materials typically provide superior dental stain resistance.

If one of your teeth has an existing dental filling, active cavity or chipped area of tooth enamel he might recommend restoring it with a porcelain dental crown. This will completely replace the tooth’s original enamel layer with dental grade porcelain-ceramic.

When your dental veneers are ready Dr. Vaibhav Bajaj will install them at a second appointment. This will provide you with a white smile that will last for many years.
