Dull Smile? What’s Best: Whitening, Bonding, Or Veneers?


We all change over time – our personalities shift, we mature, our bodies grow and age, and our teeth don’t exactly stay bright white. For many of us this isn’t a big deal, but if your smile is an important part of who you are you need it to look its best!

At Precise Dental Of Houston we offer several ways to restore a fading smile, and each of them is particularly suited to certain needs. Whether you just want to brighten up your teeth or are looking to completely rejuvenate your smile we can make it happen!

Teeth Whitening: Can It Really Work?

A lot of the patients we see at our Houston office have tried whitening their teeth in the past with mixed results. The problem is all of those home whitening kits – they’re simply not trustworthy! There are a lot of problems with at-home whitening, but the systems we offer at Precise Dental are ones we know deliver results.

Teeth whitening is ideal for the patient who is simply tired of a dull smile. Stains can happen due to food, drink, smoking, and aging, all of which are undoable with professional deep bleaching. We can even remove some stains that you thought would never come out!

If there are other imperfections you would like to erase then teeth whitening might not be enough to get the job done, however, which is why our other two options are a great alternative choice.

Cosmetic Bonding: Results You Can See Instantly

Sometimes it takes a new facade to really transform a building, and the same goes for your teeth. Cosmetic bonding is a technique by which we apply dental composite to the front of your teeth to reshape, brighten, and restore their youthful, vibrant look. Bonding is done directly on your teeth and you’ll be able to see the results before the composite is cured in place.

If you’re worried about wear due to aging, small chips, deep discoloration, or uneven enamel cosmetic bonding is a great choice for you. It’s affordable, long-lasting, and can be done in just a single visit! Imagine walking out the door with a perfect new smile in one trip – it can really happen!

All we need to do is have you sit down and get relaxed. We’ll slightly roughen the surface of your teeth to make your bonds adhere more easily, and then apply the composite in a soft, putty-like form. We’ll shape them to create the exact results you want, get your okay, and harden them in mere minutes. Then you’ll be ready to enjoy your new smile!

Porcelain Veneers: The Number One Smile Restoration

If you want to spare no expense in restoring your smile there’s only one way to go: porcelain veneers. Veneers take care of the same issues as cosmetic bonding, but with more beauty, precision, and reliability.

Made of wafer-thin porcelain, our veneers are like fake nails for your teeth. They’re fabricated in our dental lab to be completely lifelike, long-lasting, and reflective of the smile you want to have. Deep stains and discoloration, wear, and other imperfections will be completely erased.

One of the best parts about veneers is the way they mimic natural teeth. Damaging them is difficult and if you chip a veneer you would have probably chipped a tooth as well. The same goes for staining – cosmetic bonds will fade with age, but veneers will still look bright and white for years after they’re placed.

If you don’t want to settle for less, don’t. Veneers are the way to go.

Which Is The Best Choice?

Every cosmetic treatment we perform comes with a consultation. We’ll sit down together and discuss your needs, wants, budget, and timetable to decide which technique will best suit your needs. Once we know how to proceed we’ll develop a treatment plan that will outline everything about your treatment. Your next appointment will be where you receive your perfect new smile!
