By Dr. Richard Bernstein
Many factors contribute to stains on the enamel or discoloration, including:
- Beverages such as wine, colas, coffee, and tea
- Vegetables and fruits, like potatoes and apples
- Health conditions, medical treatments, and hormone fluctuations
- Aging wears away the enamel and reveals more of the dentin
- Over the counter and prescription medications such as antidepressants, antihistamines, certain antibiotics, and blood pressure pills
- Trauma to the enamel
- Overabundance of fluoride
- Older dental work
- Inadequate oral hygiene
- Smoking and tobacco use

Porcelain veneers have become a very popular, affordable, and easy solution for patients who desire the smile of their dreams. Because porcelain has many of the same light reflecting and temperature resisting qualities of the tooth’s natural enamel, it is a material of choice for dental enhancements.
Durable and long-lasting, porcelain veneers can redesign your smile with minimal impact to your natural teeth. Ultra-thin layers of porcelain are custom shaped and bonded to your teeth, transforming your smile and resolving a host of imperfections such as:
- Excessive wear
- Oddly shaped teeth
