If your smile has lost its appeal due to minor imperfections like small chips and deep stains, then you might want to talk to Dr. Rai about your options for restoring the appearance of your smile.

There are a few cosmetic improvement options available to you. Finding the best option for improving your smile will depend on how deeply your teeth are stained, past dental work, or any chips or fractures on the teeth in your smile.

Dental veneers are essentially thin porcelain shells that are cemented onto the face of the teeth in your smile. They are a popular option for improving your smile if you have teeth with minor chips as well as deep stains.

If one of the teeth in your smile has extensive past dental work, or it lacks sufficient enamel to anchor a dental veneer, then Dr. Rai might recommend that tooth is fitted for a crown.

If the teeth in your smile are only suffering from staining issues, then Dr. Rai can help you find the best products or procedures to whiten your smile. Defining your whitening goals and addressing the primary cause of the staining will greatly influence the best teeth whitening option.

Whitening toothpaste or whitening strips can usually whiten minor surface stains. However, if the teeth in your smile are deeply stained you will need to employ stronger whitening procedures.

The dental tooth bleaching procedure offered by Dr. Rai employs concentrated whitening agents that are significantly stronger than anything available in stores. It is the safest most effective way to whiten your teeth.
