Frequent dental problems: yellow and misaligned teeth
The discoloration and misalignment of the teeth are frequent problems both in men and women, however combatable.
Many substances like coffee and tobacco cause tooth discoloration, as well as the acid in food and drinks. These substances affect the tooth enamel, which is the hard and naturally white layer of the teeth, till it gets thinner and becomes translucent, so that it starts to show the underlying layer called dentin which tone is yellower.
6 main causes of yellow teeth
- Hot drinks: coffee, tea.
-Green tea damages less than black tea.
- Cola, Soda, Sports Drinks, fruit juices
– Freshly made juices aren’t processed in the same way so they are less acid and damage less the teeth
- Sugary sweets
- Curry and other sauces
-Curries, sweet chili and tomato sauce can attach to porous dental enamel. Salads, or steamed vegetables, on the contrary, help to protect the dental layer over your tooth enamel to lessen the chance of getting stains.
- Poor dental hygiene
Recommended treatment for both yellow and misaligned teeth
Doctor Zul from Noa Dental Clinic recommends the application of porcelain veneers to cover the front surface of the teeth in the ‘smile zone’ in order to approach a tooth’s color and shape change.
These ceramic laminates are stain-resistant and closely resemble the light reflecting properties of natural teeth enamel.
Doctor Zul also highlights that the application of porcelain veneers contributes to get a Hollywood smile. The question is how?
Thanks to their strength and lifelike appearance, porcelain veneers can be one of the most trusted and aesthetically effective procedures towards achieving a Hollywood Smile by:
- Closing gaps in between teeth
- Correcting minor misalignment of teeth
- Restoring chipped and worn down teeth
- Addressing permanent staining not correctable by tooth whitening procedures
The treatment approach would be to determine what the final results should look like, and work backwards from there. The protocol for Hollywood Smile involves creating a ‘trial smile’ using provisional veneers, one that can be modified to custom tailor the patient’s final smile.
In addition, for the final veneers, the dentist arranges personalized color shading with the ceramist to create a perfect smile.
Hollywood smile makeover should greatly improve the smile and enhances the aesthetics of the facial features.
At Noa Dental Clinic doctors consults with the patients the preferences for shape, length, width and color of the teeth. They carefully ask which result the patient is looking for and examine the teeth to establish if porcelain veneers are appropriate for the individual.
It is recommendable to consult with a doctor before signing for any treatment.
