Bleaching is a non-invasive procedure that brightens your teeth. Results for bleaching are variable, depending on tooth structure. On average you can get shades 2-3 times brighter. It is recommended for patients at any age that have natural healthy teeth. The result of a bleaching lasts 2-5 years depending on your diet habits.
Veneers are a more permanent long-lasting alternative to bleaching, with a permanent outcome, with the freedom to select any shade you desire. This alternative is recommended in cases where the patient has many composite restorations in the anterior area. In some cases where teeth are natural, but have a very dark shade, we can use skins, to reproduce the same shapes in the desired color. Veneers
