A Creative Solution to 3 Common Teeth Whitening Problems

Sometimes teeth whitening calls for an obvious fix, like deep bleaching. But, for many of our patients, their dental histories make deep bleaching an unsuccessful solution. From dental crowns to implants, many restorative dental services will create a challenge for whitening. This challenge is no reason to fret. We offer teeth whitening and cosmetic dentistry for a whole host of these pesky issues. Many problems have a reasonable solution that will help you to smile big and bright: porcelain veneers.

You Have Dental Crowns

When you have other materials than enamel on some of your teeth, like dental crowns, trying to do a deep bleaching will lead to different shades of white. To keep your teeth an even keel of pearly perfection, try porcelain veneers. These are a permanent solution to whitening, and they can be matched to the shade already on your crowns.

You Have a Tooth Implant, Partials, or a Bridge

The same idea applies to implants, partials and bridges as with a dental crown. If you have a material, such as porcelain, instead of enamel on the outside of one of your teeth, trying to bleach it will lead to an awkward, unmatched result. Try ordering a set of porcelain veneers to match that shade instead. Your veneers should stay dazzlingly white, as long as you maintain good preventive dental health, so you won’t need to worry about bleaching anymore.

You Have a Combination of Different Dental Issues

If you have multiple dental issues, such as an implant, a crown, a cracked tooth, and a stained tooth, veneers might still be your best option. You may be able to match the veneers to your porcelain prosthetics, while correcting the unsightly problems with your natural teeth. If you have any questions about whether porcelain veneers are right for you, contact your dentist about your specific case.
