If You Love Coffee Visit a Veneers Dentist to Keep Your Smile Looking Amazing

Coffee drinkers rejoice – as a dentist that specializes in veneers, Dr. Patel can keep your teeth looking white, regardless of how much time you spend at your favorite coffee shop. Most of our patients know that drinking coffee can stain their teeth, but no one wants to give up their morning cup of java. Drinking coffee has become part of the American culture, and it is difficult to give it up entirely. Though stained and yellow teeth are a common side effect of frequenting the coffee shop, we have some solutions that can fix this!

The most common cosmetic dentist procedure for stains and yellowing is a teeth whitening procedure. This procedure does an excellent job at lifting stains and turning yellow teeth into white ones. The main challenge here, however, is that if you whiten your teeth then proceed to drink coffee and other foods that stain; your teeth will become yellow again before your next visit. You can always increase the frequency of your teeth whitening procedures in order to combat this.

At times, teeth won’t respond to the whitening procedure like they should. A more permanent solution to stains is veneers. A veneer is a thin shell that is made of porcelain or ceramic and is placed directly on top of your existing teeth. It is created in a dental laboratory to match the size and shape of your teeth so that it looks beautifully natural. Dental veneers can cover dark stains, and many of our patients also use them to close gaps and restore damaged teeth.

One of the reasons that we like veneers is that they are stain resistant. Unlike natural teeth, ceramic does not absorb the color of what you eat or drink. This makes it unlikely that your veneers will stain. For those that like to drink a pot of coffee every day, smoke, or drink wine – this is a fabulous solution for keeping your teeth white, without the need for a whitening procedure as often. In this way, veneers are extremely convenient and effective at creating a gorgeous smile.

As people age, it is incredibly common for teeth to appear yellow. This can be frustrating as yellow teeth make a person look older. Even people in their twenties that smoke or drink regularly can find themselves struggling with yellow and stained teeth that make them appear much older than they actually are. As a veneers providing dentist, we can solve this problem, and our patients are delighted with the results that they receive after having the procedure completed.

We do recommend that before any cosmetic work is done, you have your teeth cleaned. This way we can remove bacteria and plaque while also making sure that your teeth and gums are healthy. Once done, you should also have your teeth whitened. This will give you the opportunity to get the most natural appearance with veneers that match your truest white. It will also tell you if all of your teeth need veneers or if only a couple of teeth need them. To learn more schedule an appointment with Dr. Patel today.
