A Warning about Whitening with Veneers and Crowns

dca-blog-254-Dental-Veneers_1200x630

If you’re thinking about tooth whitening, you need to think twice if you have porcelain veneers or crowns because whitening won’t work on this dental work. Discover how to handle this dental dilemma.

When to Whiten if you Need Veneers or Crowns

Are you planning to get porcelain veneers or crowns? Realize that they are designed to match the color of your teeth. If you want lighter teeth, you should whiten your teeth before getting veneers or crowns so this dental work can be crafted to reflect the brighter shade of your smile. This is the best way to go about whitening with veneers.

The Wait between Whitening and Dental Work

After you’ve whitened your teeth, the tooth needs a chance to return to its healthy state and the color needs time to set. If you want to get crowns or porcelain veneers following one of these whitening treatments, you must wait a little time to let the tooth fully stabilize. This is the only way to ensure that your crowns or veneers will perfectly match the new shade of your smile. When you want to schedule whitening with veneers or crowns, wait about two weeks after your whitening treatment to begin your other dental work.

The Dental Damage of Whitening

Don’t worry that whitening will harm your crowns or porcelain veneers. It’s simply a cosmetic procedure. Your dental restorations are made of extremely strong materials and won’t be affected by the bleach in the tooth whitening treatment.
