Porcelain veneers provide a more significant and long-lasting improvement in tooth color compared to teeth whitening procedures.
Regular dental cleanings, teeth whitening treatments, and avoiding stain-causing foods and drinks can help reduce or eliminate tooth stains.
They can be taken inside the mouth (intraoral) or outside (extraoral), using a small film or sensor and a controlled burst of X-ray radiation.
You may need to pause Invisalign treatment if you require dental work. Consult with your orthodontist for guidance on the best approach.
Use desensitizing toothpaste, avoid acidic foods, use a soft-bristled toothbrush, and consult a dentist for a definitive diagnosis and treatment.
A dental stimulator with a silicone tip can be used with porcelain veneers, but remove your aligners for effective cleaning between your teeth.
