Dental Veneers Can Help Improve the Appearance of a Tobacco Stained Smile

Posted .

Tobacco use can prove dangerous to your long term medical and oral health. It can also cause significant dental stains to build up on the teeth in your smile. To address a problem like this in the short term, Dr. Bachar Saba can whiten your teeth by performing a dental bleaching treatment. However, if you continue to use tobacco products, your teeth will likely develop new dental stains. If you struggle with tobacco cessation, Dr. Bachar Saba might recommend fitting you with dental veneers.

They are custom shaped shells created from a special dental porcelain material in a professional dental lab. Each dental veneer will be shaped to perfectly match the face of each tooth that appears in your smile. The special dental porcelain will look just like natural white tooth enamel. Yet it will resist dental stains better than tooth enamel. This will help minimize the appearance of tobacco stains on your smile.

If one of your teeth has been compromised by thin tooth enamel, an old filling or a new cavity, Dr. Bachar Saba might recommend restoring it with a porcelain dental crown. This treatment will completely replace the tooth’s enamel layer with the same dental porcelain material used for your dental veneers.
