Will teeth whitening make my crowns, bridges and veneer s whiter?
Tooth whitening only works on your natural teeth and it won't affect your crowns
, bridges, veneers or any other dental work
. One thing to consider in case you have crowns and bridges is that after the whitening there might be a substantial difference between their color and the color of your teeth.
This is something important to take into consideration before investing in a lot of different teeth whitening products. One thing you should look at is how much work has been done on the visible parts of your teeth. If you have had major work done on the very front of your teeth, then maybe these products are not for you. If your work has been done mostly in the back of your mouth, or the backside of your teeth, then you probably are ok to continue on with teeth whitening products. If the work is minimal then you should go on as normal and find a product that will work best to whiten your teeth. For the fastest results without having to fork out a lot of cash, look into whitening gels and strips. They will give you substantial results in a short amount of time. If you are trying to be as economical as possible you can always just invest in whitening toothpaste
or even get some baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to use.
Whitening your teeth
is purely a cosmetic feature, so rather than risk giving your teeth even more of a contrast; you need to assess your situation. If you have had a lot of work on your mouth but you still wish to brighten your smile, then you probably need to seek professional teeth whiteners. They can most likely update the crowns, bridges and veneers to have a whiter color to match the rest of your teeth.
