Teeth Whitening With Porcelain Veneers
An alternative option to whitening your existing teeth and still brightening your smile is through receiving porcelain veneers. These kinds of veneers are a thin shell made from porcelain that is placed on the front of visible teeth. The result is a smile customized to the exact shade of white you desire, one that will last longer than whitening the natural surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can also correct tooth size, shape, alignment and spacing, giving you an even more perfect smile.
The price of this more permanent modification is more than natural whitening treatments. However, if you are motivated to have your smile looking its best without frequent visits to the dentist, porcelain veneers could be your best option and may save you money in the long run.
Dental Crowns & Teeth Whitening
If you have dental crowns, the shade chosen during the procedure will match that of your existing tooth color. If your natural teeth begin to yellow, you may want to consider getting a whitening treatment to blend them with your crowns. Whitening treatments will not affect crowns since they are designed to be resistant to discoloration, meaning they will stay the same color from when you got them. Some whitening methods such as bleaching may actually damage the crown if it's old or your surrounding teeth have decayed. Teeth bleaching is only recommended if done before your crown procedure.
If you have crowns, talk to your dentist before scheduling a teeth whitening appointment. The dentists at Windsor will help you choose the best option when it comes to whitening your smile.
Crest Whitestrips on Tooth Restorations
If you've had restorative work done to your teeth, you may wonder if the whitening process will change their color. Bleaching, whitening trays and Crest Whitestrips will not harm or whiten crowns, caps, fillings, veneers, partials, or composite bonding. If you have yellowed teeth and also need a restorative procedure, it's recommended that you have your teeth whitened before the restoration. After your teeth have been whitened, your dentist will be able to better match your dental restoration to the color of your natural teeth.
