There are many reasons why teeth become stained, darkened or yellow over time. These can include genetics, medical conditions, medications and lifestyle habits. Discolored teeth can detract from the natural beauty of your smile, make you look older and often cause you to feel self conscious about your appearance. A bright, white smile has even been shown to impact professional interaction and employment opportunities.
The many advances in materials, techniques and the science of dentistry have given way to new treatment options for whitening your smile with safe, effective and lasting results. Dr. Tracey Hughes is a Louisville cosmetic dentist with advanced training and experience in addressing cosmetic dental concerns such as discolored teeth with a range of treatment options.
Treating Discolored Teeth
In most cases a teeth whitening treatment can give you back a smile that is radiant, younger looking and up to 8 shades whiter. Dr. Hughes will meet with you to evaluate your dental health and discuss your concerns and personal goals for your smile. If teeth whitening is not right for you, we offer alternative cosmetic treatments like a dental crown that can provide permanent results for a brighter smile.
