If you are considering tooth whitening, you may be wondering if you can brighten your existing dental work as well. Certain types of dental work will not respond to whitening agents. Dental work that cannot change color includes:
If possible, you should whiten your teeth prior to any planned dental work. Porcelain veneers, for example, can be matched to the color of your teeth after your whitening treatment. If you have existing dental work but would like your teeth whitened, at Desert Smiles Cosmetic & Sedation Dentistry we can determine the best way to brighten your smile. Depending on the specific restorations you have, whitening may still be a good option. Another option is removing old dental work and replacing it with new restorations after your teeth have been whitened. Everyone has unique teeth, and the only way for us to determine the best cosmetic treatment for your smile is by meeting you in a consultation. If you live in Glendale, Arizona or the surrounding areas and are interested in tooth whitening, please contact experienced cosmetic dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox at Desert Smiles Cosmetic & Sedation Dentistry to schedule a consultation.
