Cosmetic Improvement

One of the most difficult things to fix in dentistry, is a discolored tooth.

Usually what will happen is the person has an injury to the tooth. Years later, that tooth begins to discolor.

Unfortunately, the majority of the time the discoloration happens on the inside of the tooth. What that means is, that if you decided to whiten your teeth the traditional way with bleaching trays, that method would not work.

Your tooth would stay dark.

In the past, we’ve masked this discoloration with a crown. Basically, removing some tooth structure and creating a very thick crown that will help to block the dark color. This is very hard to do. The results can be good, but it is very difficult to make the color of one crown match to the rest of the natural teeth.

We had a patient that was thinking of getting some veneers to cover up her discolored tooth.

We proposed a bleaching technique that whitens the tooth from the inside.

The patient had an injury that chipped her front tooth and had bonding placed 15 years ago. That bonding was beginning to discolor so we proposed to change out the bonding, as well as do the internal bleaching technique.

This bleaching method worked great and we were able to get a great color match result, with the bonding. It is very difficult to see where the bonding was placed and it blended very well with her natural teeth.

Take a look at the video below, to see the beautiful results:

I loved the outcome of this case.

It was conservative and the cosmetic results were outstanding.

Floss like a madman!Emilio “Results Matter” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
