Is It Possible To Whiten Veneers?

A bright, white smile is a great way to boost self-confidence and make a great impression. Many people choose veneers, whitening, or other dental treatments in order to achieve a perfect smile, and with good reason. Research shows that people with whiter teeth are seen as smarter, more approachable, and generally more successful!

Is It Possible To Whiten Veneers

Over time, it’s normal for our teeth to become stained, darkened, or yellowed. Your teeth can become discolored for many reasons.

  • Food and Drink: Foods and drinks that may stain your teeth include coffee, tea, alcoholic drinks, sugar, soda, acidic food, and dark berries. You can reduce the harm done to your teeth by consuming these foods and drinks in moderation, using a straw when drinking sugary beverages, and making sure to brush and floss regularly.
  • Smoking: The nicotine, tar, and other chemicals in cigarettes are tooth-staining. Another good reason to quit!
  • Aging: Teeth naturally darken over time.

Unfortunately there are many reasons our teeth may become discolored over time, even if we take good care of them. Fortunately, there are many options to get a dazzling smile, including dental veneers, and dental whitening procedures.

Dental veneers can made of porcelain or resin. They are thin and custom designed to cover the surface of your teeth. You may choose to get veneers if your teeth are:

  • Discolored
  • Worn-down
  • Crooked, Uneven, or Poorly Aligned.
  • Chipped or Broken.

Veneers are a great way to get a whiter, straighter smile. However, as our natural teeth may stain, or darken over time, the presence of a veneer, or multiple veneers, may make the darker teeth more conspicuous. This is a good thing to think about, and to discuss with your dentist before you have veneers put on. It may be best to have your teeth whitened before the veneers are applied.

The good news is, whitening will not damage or affect your veneers! Dental veneers are made to withstand whitening and other dental treatments. Additionally, at-home whitening products are also safe to use, though for the best possible treatment it’s recommended you go to the dentist.
If you want a whiter smile, and already have veneers, whitening is still a safe and very effective option. Our experienced team will work with you to make sure your teeth are the exact shade you want.

If you’re unhappy with your smile, there are many options for improvement. For further information about teeth whitening, veneers, and any other cosmetic dentistry needs, contact our team today!
