Best Dental Treatments To Consider After Quarantine

Although it is understandable and necessary, being under quarantine is decidedly unpleasant for the vast majority of people. You have likely been putting off things that both need to be done and you want to be done. When you have regained your freedom after quarantine, you will probably have a list of things that you want to be accomplished, which may include dental treatments.

Cosmetic Dental Treatments

Although you may have been keeping up with your needed dental exams and cleanings, you may have had your eye on some type of cosmetic treatment before the arrival of COVID-19. Now is the time to schedule a consultation or appointment to receive that treatment, or at least start the process.

Let’s take a look at some common cosmetic dental treatments, what they can do for you, and what is involved.

Teeth Whitening

It is common for adults to have some level of teeth staining as they grow older. This can be due to a number of factors, including:

  • Consumption of beverages like tea, coffee, or red wine
  • A smoking habit
  • Taking certain medications
  • Worn tooth enamel

Although teeth whitening treatments are available at home, these products typically produce inferior results. One reason is that the whitening gel cannot match the strength of a professional treatment.

Some at-home teeth whitening options include whitening strips, teeth whitening toothpaste, and kits that provide a gel that is poured into a type of mouthguard that fits over the teeth. Some of these treatments can provide a noticeable level of whitening, although the ones that work tend to also produce unpleasant teeth and gum sensitivity.

Another key reason to seek out professional teeth whitening is that we can monitor the entire process to prevent any harm to your teeth or gums. Our expertise also helps to ensure that the risk of developing sensitivity with your teeth or gums is minimal. One reason is that we take careful steps to ensure that only your teeth come into contact with the whitening gel.

Porcelain Veneers

A dental veneer is a type of artificial material that we place on the surface of one or more teeth to correct minor defects or to whiten the teeth. The most popular type is composed of porcelain, which is extremely stain-resistant and durable.

Many people receive porcelain veneers to correct gaps between teeth or to correct minor chips. You should also consider porcelain veneers if you always find yourself coming in for repeated teeth whitening treatments. It is hard to match porcelain when it comes to stain-resistant properties.

Schedule Your Consultation
