Discoloration is a common dental issue we all face. It could be due to oral health, genetics or food we consume. Although it is quite natural it does tend to look unappealing and can affect self-confidence. However, this is no reason to stress. Discoloration can be easily fixed through the process of teeth whitening or crowning.
Teeth whitening products are widely available that can be used at home or from a dentist. It usually is a bleaching chemical and a dentist’s advice and recommendations are crucial. The other procedure is known as crowning which acts as a cover over the teeth. It covers discoloration and protects teeth that are weak and prone to breaking. This procedure requires a dentist but works great if weak teeth and discoloration is insecurity you need a remedy for.
A veneer is known as a thin covering laid over something to cover up or improve look. For teeth, it is layering that is put over teeth to ensure an aesthetic smile. It is made to look natural but requires the scraping over some of the enamel of teeth. Two types of veneers are normally used.

Unlike porcelain, composite is an engineered resin made to match your natural teeth covering the front of the tooth.
Uneven teeth are extremely common and many people go through a period of wearing braces regardless of age.
