Many people have smiles that aren’t as white and sparkling as they’d like. Sometimes the discoloration is due to too much tobacco or coffee use, or other factors. Regardless of what caused your teeth to become stained, the truth is that you often can’t whiten them on your own.

If your teeth are stained so deeply that over-the-counter options don’t work, you may want to consider using veneers to whiten your teeth.

What are veneers?

Veneers are simply wafer-thin shells, usually made of porcelain or porcelain fused with other metals, that are custom-fitted to sit on top of your teeth. They’re almost like a “facelift” for your teeth.

How do they whiten my smile?

Veneers are created to look just the natural surface of your teeth. However, they’re made to look pearly white – just like healthy teeth do. So if your smile is discolored due to deep enamel stains, veneers are a great way to cover up the stains and walk out of Dr. Angela Osborn’s office with an instantly-white smile.

You do need to keep up good oral health habits with your veneers or else they’ll stain just like your natural teeth, but they can provide a great option for whitening your teeth.
