In series explaining aspects of cosmetic dentistry. If you missed them, you can find the first two posts here and here.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a process that can be conducted in your home or in the dentist's office. According to the majority of dental practitioners, in-office whitening methods are the more effective option, and will generate better results than the over-the-counter methods. In-office, Dr. El-Hayek has the ability to fix any kind of dental issues the person may be dealing with, like cavities and tooth sensitivity. He will also make certain that the patient's gums are guarded against the whitening agents.

Even though over-the-counter brightening tools are relatively inexpensive, it is preferable to speak with Dr. El-Hayek prior to buying them.

Depending on how serious the discoloration is, an in-office whitening can require 1 to 3 visits. First, Dr. El-Hayek will construct a mold of the patient’s teeth. Then a tray will be made that will hold the whitening solution. Patients will then wear the trays over their teeth for a few hours a day, and will usually see results in a couple weeks.

Enamel whitening isn't permanent, so it is crucial that the patient talks about further treatment options with Dr. El-Hayek.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are a dependable method for those who would like minor corrective treatments for problems like fractures, discolored teeth, and gap teeth. Dr. El-Hayek will begin by removing a small amount of enamel—approximately 1 millimeter— prior to fixing the veneers to your teeth. When the veneers are in place, it is practically impossible to differentiate them from your real teeth. Taking care of veneers requires nothing extraordinary. Regular flossing and brushing with non-abrasive toothpaste will keep them healthy and strong. The patient will probably be sensitive to hot and cold foods and beverages momentarily, although this will only remain for a couple of days while the patient adjusts to the changes to their teeth.

Over the course of the last three blogs, we've talked about a number of cosmetic dental options. If you'd like to set up a visit with Dr. El Hayek to discuss these services further, you can contact us here.
