A smile attracts others to you. It is one of the first features people notice when they meet you. It can give you the boost of confidence you need for a job interview. Smiling also releases endorphins, which naturally boost your mood. With so many reasons to smile, patients know they can count on a dentist in Richmond who delivers natural looking results – Dr. Charles Martin. The doctor and his team offer cosmetic treatments including teeth whitening and veneers at Richmond Smile Center.
Combating tooth stains
Foods, drinks, and habits can cause tooth stains. Berries, sauces, coffee, tea, and smoking can lead to discoloration. Over time, aging can lead to thinning enamel, resulting in dull looking teeth. Permanent stains can be caused by medications such as tetracycline or excessive fluoride (fluorosis). Regardless of the reason for tooth discoloration, many patients seek treatment for whiter smiles.
Attaining a whiter smile
Dr. Martin and his team provide several teeth whitening options to transform a smile from dull to radiant. For example, using the Zoom! whitening system, we can ensure teeth are many shades lighter. We will provide instructions to help you maintain your pearly whites. These include avoiding foods and beverages that may cause stains and maintaining excellent oral hygiene habits. Good oral health practices include brushing at least twice a day, flossing before bedtime, and maintaining dental check-ups for biannual cleanings and examinations.
Enhancing the beauty of the smile with veneers
Although Dr. Martin prefers the most conservative treatment to meet your needs, there is another option that can restore brightness to the smile: veneers. Thin porcelain shells, customized to match your natural tooth color, are placed on permanently stained teeth. With proper care and maintenance, your veneers can last many years.
From teeth whitening to dental veneers, Dr. Martin and his team can help you feel attractive and confident when you smile. Call 804.417.7203 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Martin.
