Dental Veneers v Teeth Whitening Methods in Bath

There are many choices in Bath when it comes to keeping your smile white and healthy and two of the more popular treatments around are teeth whitening or bleaching and veneers. Choosing what is best for you depends on the condition of your teeth and gums but if you are having doubts as to which is best for you, can easily be resolved by a consultation with your dentist. If your have strong, healthy gums and teeth that are suffering from discoloration, teeth whitening is for you. There are many methods to choose from home bleaching kits to laser whitening- each offer fantastic results and are quick and cheap, though limited to the teeth being in good shape to start with. But as we age, our teeth can suffer from general wear and tear, cracks and gaps can develop and gums can start to recede. Teeth whitening will not be able to rectify these problems, whereas having a veneer fitted can, although at a little more expense. A simple procedure, fitting a veneer, can rectify these problems and can be coloured to match the rest of the teeth in the mouth, hence it is good for restoring the sheen to a single tooth. Both procedures have their place in your mouth. Ironically, if you have veneers fitted that have discoloured over time, a teeth whitening treatment will work on both the veneer and the other teeth to restore your smile.
