Which Is Better: Teeth Whitening or Porcelain Veneers?

A bright, vibrant smile is often considered a sign of health and beauty. If you have stains and tooth discoloration that are negatively impacting the appearance of your smile, Dr. Marianna Farber offers a number of cosmetic solutions that can whiten your teeth.

Professional teeth whitening treatments are a fast and easy way to significantly lighten the shade of your teeth. Our KöR® Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System combines the benefits of in-office procedures and at-home kits for a comprehensive approach to attaining a brighter smile. Using custom-made trays, the procedure begins with a two-week at-home treatment period that you can do at your convenience. After stubborn surface stains are removed, patients return to our office for a bleaching treatment to remove deep-set stains. The results of the KöR® system are typically long lasting and your custom-made trays can be used to easily perform touch-up treatments whenever needed.

Dental veneers use a thin layer of porcelain to cover the front surface of the tooth, concealing any stains or discoloration. The color of this porcelain is customized to match the color of the surrounding natural teeth, and when properly cared for, veneers can last for decades. The major advantage of porcelain veneers is their versatility – this cosmetic dentistry solution can address a wide range of tooth imperfections simultaneously and conceal cracks, chips, gaps, spaces, uneven teeth, or mild tooth misalignment.

During the consultation process, Dr. Farber will perform an oral exam, discuss your unique goals and expectations, and recommend a treatment that can meet your needs.
