If you’re embarrassed to smile because your teeth look dingy and discoloured or you have flaws like chipped or broken teeth, there are dental services designed to quickly make your teeth look better. You can restore your teeth and reclaim a bright white smile in just a few hours with these dental services.

Teeth Whitening

Eating or drinking certain foods and smoking can cause your teeth to become stained and look dingy. Many people with stained teeth don’t like to smile because their teeth embarrass them. Fortunately, you can have teeth whitening procedures done at a dentist’s office to remove stains and improve how your teeth look.

Most dentists use teeth whitening procedures which involve applying a whitening gel to the teeth and then applying heat to activate the gel. This procedure can whiten teeth several shades lighter, and you can maintain their appearance by being careful about what you eat and drink and by stopping smoking.


Sometimes teeth will become discoloured due to an injury to them. Getting hit in the mouth can result in the inside part of the tooth sustaining damage that can show through the enamel. Teeth whitening will not change the appearance of teeth that are discoloured, but applying veneers can help hide the discolouration.

Veneers can also help make small teeth appear larger by applying the veneers and then shaping them so that they look natural but have a larger surface area. Veneers are made from materials like porcelain or porcelain laminates, so they are strong, and a dentist at Sunshine Dental can tell you how to care for them so that they last a long time.

Dental Implants

If a tooth has been broken or you’re missing a tooth, you can replace it with a dental implant. Instead of having a bridge made, which hooks onto other teeth, a dental implant can be installed. Implants look and can be used like real teeth, so there is no need to remove them each night before going to bed.

Replacing a missing tooth is important, as teeth will adjust in your mouth when there is space that allows them to do so. Thus, your teeth could end up tilting into the space, which can cause problems with speech, chewing, and appearance. Getting a dental implant not only restores how your teeth look, but will eliminate many additional complications.

Dental Crowns

Another way to improve the appearance of a chipped or broken tooth is to have a crown put over it. Crowns should also be placed over a tooth after a procedure like a root canal to protect the weakened tooth. Crowns can be made from various materials such as porcelain, stainless steel, gold, and ceramic, so they are strong and can protect your teeth if you follow your dentist’s advice about taking care of them.

These procedures can help restore your teeth and prevent further complications. They can also help improve your confidence and give you back your smile, because you will no longer need to feel embarrassed about showing your great-looking teeth.
