We all realize that having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence. Thanks to the advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, we are able to improve our teeth and smiles with quick, painless and surprisingly affordable treatments.

Our Cosmetic Services
Do your teeth have unsightly stains? Have you bought a drugstore teeth whitening kit and were left with disappointing results? At Franklinville Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer professional teeth whitening services to brighten your teeth up to eight shades whiter. Whether your teeth have been stained due to age, dental trauma, or even your medication, Dr. Gottleib and our team of cosmetic specialists are here to help!
Dental veneers are thin, natural-looking porcelain shells affixed to the surfaces of your teeth to conceal aesthetic flaws. This cosmetic treatment is a great solution for patients wanting to correct any number of minor cosmetic imperfections. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Gottleib, typically recommends veneers to correct uneven, crooked, chipped, misshapen, or discolored teeth.
Frequently Asked Questions
Not necessarily. While poor oral hygiene can contribute to yellowed or discolored teeth, it’s far from the only reason your teeth lose their luster. Your teeth can be in peak health and still become discolored due to age, tobacco use, or oral trauma. Regardless of the reason, professional teeth whitening treatments can help brighten your smile.
If you have older dental fillings, crowns, or other restorations, these whitening systems will only work to improve the appearance of the natural tooth enamel, so you won’t notice any changes in those restorations. It’s ideal to have those restorations replaced after a whitening treatment so they match the new and improved color of the rest of your smile.
There are a few natural ways to help prevent teeth from turning yellow:
- Avoiding foods and beverages that stain teeth is a great way to start.
- Brushing and flossing twice a day can also help your teeth stay white.
- Always do your best to protect teeth from trauma, which may involve wearing a night guard if you grind your teeth or a mouth guard if you play sports.
Of course, it’s possible to do all of these things and still have discolored teeth because of genetics. Aging is also a contributing factor, as the internal, living tissue of the tooth ages naturally and becomes discolored over time. The best solution for this issue is to use a permanent teeth whitening system.
