Tetracycline Stains Treatment

Beyond Veneers and Cosmetic Dentistry - No Drilling, No Surgery

This patient wanted a whiter and brighter smile but she also wanted it to look natural. When she came to our office she had extensive tetracycline stains and veneers on her canines that had turned black, which are one of the tell-tale signs of veneers gone bad. She also did not like the broken edges or the gaps in her teeth. Her smile was very narrow and the size of her teeth were not sized proportionally. She wanted to treat her tetracycline stains and bad veneers as non-invasively as possible.

Eliminating Tetracycline Stains & Bad Veneers for a Beautiful Smile

Noninvasive porcelain veneers are used to treat the dark tetracycline stains by completely hiding it and give the patient a beautiful even smile.

Dark tetracycline stains, the gaps between her teeth, and yellow teeth are completely resolved with non invasive porcelain veneers that successfully and permanently hide the dark tetracycline stain.

She was very specific that she wanted as little grinding as possible on her natural teeth and this is one of Dr. Muslin's specialties. She received two crowns on the canine teeth to bring them inline with the rest of the smile. Veneers were bonded on the remaining upper teeth for a perfectly matched result. Notice how much wider and fuller her smile became in the after image!

To make sure that the look stayed natural, all of restorations have translucencies, surface textures, and subtle shading. The shape of each tooth is custom designed to match her facial features and to capture the anatomy of a natural tooth. The entire process took only two visits and she was thrilled with the results.
