Veneers ImageFactors that Affect the Color of your Teeth

Some people are born with teeth that are more yellow than others, while others have teeth that yellow with age.  Your natural tooth color can also be affected by an array of other factors including:
  • Tobacco
  • Drinking tea, coffee, or red wine
  • Eating highly pigmented foods such as cherries and blueberries
  • Accumulation of tartar deposits, which result from plaque that has hardened
  • Yellowing or graying of the teeth as part of the aging process
  • Trauma to the teeth that may result in the death of the tooth’s nerve

Benefits of Veneers

Most dental veneers are made of porcelain, which are favored by dentists because of their incredibly natural appearance.  Porcelain veneers are also translucent, which means that light permeates the surface rather than just bouncing off of it.  After penetrating the porcelain shell, the light then reflects off of the hard, opaque cement underneath.  The reflection comes from the inside of your tooth, giving it the luminous quality of the surrounding natural teeth. 
Another benefit of dental veneers is that they are created to match your natural teeth in terms of shape, size, and color, as they are made from a mold taken of your tooth.  Veneers can also improve both the appearance and the strength of your teeth.  Additionally, the veneers procedure is relatively quick, requiring only one easy appointment for improved teeth.
It is important that your dentist understands your objectives when undergoing the veneer procedure. Make an appointment to visit your dentist in Yakima, WA today for further assessment and treatment of your smile.   Restoring your smile is easy with dental veneers.
