Hello, I am in college and am so embarrassed by the way my smile looks. I have tried tooth whitening and over-the-counter products, and I am beginning to lose hope. The problem is that I have tetracycline stains and I am beginning to think that not every dentist is equipped for the challenge. The last […]
Why do my porcelain veneers keep coming off?

Are dental implants my only option for broken teeth?
