Your smile is the first thing people notice about you. Dr. Buddy Lee’s dental procedures help you improve your smile by repairing the damage to your teeth caused by decay, aging, and stains from food and drinks like coffee, sodas, red wine, grinding your teeth, cigarettes, and chewing tobacco.
Dental bleaching is a common procedure in general dentistry but most especially in the field of cosmetic dentistry. As a person ages the adult teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth, as the enamel becomes thinner and less porous.
Tetracycline Stained Teeth
Tetracycline is an antibiotic that was commonly used to treat bacterial infections and acne. It is now known that this medication causes teeth to turn a shade of gray or brown in color and cover the entire tooth or appear as a pattern of horizontal stripes. These stains form during tooth development and are embedded in the tooth's enamel and inner layers. Tetracycline stains are harmless but very obvious and permanent, causing low self-esteem and embarrassment, so let Dr. Buddy Lee give you your confidence back.
