Another treatment option for stubborn stains are microabrasion and macroabrasion. Book an appointment with us to know which is best and least invasive procedure in your case which suits your budget too.
For Intrinsic stains, using teeth whitening procedure cannot get you desired result.
Dental bonding or Porcelain Veneers are more viable options. Intrinsic stains cannot be removed, they can only be masked. A superficial layer of tooth is removed for porcelain veneer and impression are made to sent to dental lab to make CAD-CAM guided natural looking veneers, which can be pasted on front surface of your tooth in next appointment. For quick result, composite veneers can be done in single sitting of the treatment as they can be directly fabricated and bonded over the prepared teeth surfaces in dental office, thereby skipping the lab work. We never suggest our patients to go for full crowns as treatment of discoloration as it is very invasive procedure requiring gross removal of the tooth structure causing sensitivity and root canal therapy and gum diseases in future.
