The nicotine and tar found in tobacco often cause severe yellow staining of the teeth.
Whilst staying on top of your oral hygiene routine can help to combat this, sometimes it can be too late to reverse the effects.
The following patient had been a smoker for many years, which resulted in gum disease and staining of the teeth.
In this instance, teeth whitening was not enough to treat the problem and veneers were prescribed to enhance the mouth’s aesthetics.
However, as applying veneers with gum disease can be very difficult, the patient needed to undergo further periodontal care to ensure her mouth was stable enough for a successful veneer application.
In the end, the patient was fitted with a new full set of composite veneers with no further issues or problems.
