How to Improve the Appearance of Blotchy Teeth

Posted .

Do you have blotchy teeth, meaning teeth with white or brown stains? If so, you might suffer from fluorosis. Fluorosis is a dental issue that develops when the teeth are too exposed to fluoride. If it’s not treated, it can create an unattractive smile. This often leads to considering smile-enhancement treatments. Fortunately, your dentist, Dr. Jay Scott, offers many cosmetic dental treatments that can help with your fluorosis in Provo, Utah.

First, he offers dental bonding. This treatment is a great way to hide the stains on your teeth. It involves your dentist using a resin material that is the exact shade you desire. First, he will place the resin over the front surface of your tooth. Then, he will shape the resin to look just like natural tooth enamel. When it’s ready, he will harden it with a special light.

Second, your dentist offers porcelain veneers. This treatment is also a great way to disguise imperfections. It involves your dentist removing a portion of your tooth enamel (to make room for the restoration) and then cementing the veneer in place of that tooth enamel. The veneers will hide the stains.

Third, Dr. Jay Scott offers deep teeth whitening. This treatment involves your dentist using a professional mouth tray and whitening gel to eliminate the stains in your teeth. When he places the filled tray over the teeth and activates the solution, the chemicals will dive into the teeth and will break up the stains.
