Are Teeth Whitening Treatments or Veneers Better For Your Teeth?

If you’ve got your heart set on a perfect smile, you may be investigating cosmetic dental treatments, such as tooth whitening and veneers, but how do you decide which option is best for you? If you’re weighing up the pros and cons, we’re here to help!

Tooth whitening

Tooth whitening is a hugely popular cosmetic treatment, which is used to bring a healthy glow to your smile. Using bleaching agents, we can achieve amazing transformations in a short space of time with no pain and minimal hassle. We offer Enlighten professional whitening treatment, which lightens the colour of the enamel by several shades in just 2 weeks. Whitening is safe, it produces long-lasting results, and it’s a cheaper option than veneers.

Veneers

Veneers are very delicate, tooth-shaped shells, which are placed over the natural teeth to create a beautiful, flawless smile. Veneers can be used to brighten up the smile, but they can also address a host of other aesthetic issues, including chipped teeth, uneven and worn edges, misshapen teeth and gaps between the teeth. Veneers don’t actually rectify these problems, they simply provide a mask for them. Veneers offer long-lasting results, and they can do a lot more than just whitening the smile, but they are more expensive and treatment is more complex.

If you have any questions about tooth whitening or veneers, and you’d like more information or advice about choosing which treatment is best for you, why not give us a call and organise a consultation? We can explore both options, talk to you about the processes in more detail, and help you decide which avenue to pursue.
