You may use a take home teeth whitening kit with custom trays made for your teeth to touch up your teeth.

Broken Teeth – Broken or chipped teeth can be restored using dental veneers or all ceramic crowns. Depending on the extent of damage either laminate veneers or complete coverage crowns may be suggested by your dentist to restore the integrity of your teeth.
