Porcelain Veneers Solution for Tetracycline Staining

Tetracycline stains do not cause any harm to your teeth, but their dark color can affect your smile and self-confidence. The discoloration usually occurs when antibiotics are prescribed at a young age – between 3 and 10 years – when the teeth are still developing.

The staining occurs inside the tooth, such that its least visible on the surface of tooth enamel, but gets darker towards the pulp. With the placement of porcelain veneers, the dentist must first grind away part of the tooth enamel to create room to bond the veneers. Unfortunately, this also makes the discoloration more visible and harder to hide with veneers.

Skillful Opacity Control of Porcelain Veneers for Tetracycline Staining

Standard tooth whitening solutions, including laser treatments, are not recommended for deep tetracycline stain removal because you risk damaging the tooth nerves if you set the laser power too high. Fortunately, a skilled dentist can successfully match the thickness of porcelain veneers to hide the different intensities of tetracycline stains on adjacent teeth.

Your teeth are stained to different degrees, which means that you need a customized whitening treatment for each tooth. Making your teeth uniformly white requires customized porcelain veneer opacity control. This may involve the use of more than one kind of porcelain veneer on the same patient to give you an even and dazzling smile.
