If you have heard of porcelain veneers, you likely think of them as the cosmetic solution to use when the front of your teeth get chipped, cracked, or suffer some other unfortunate but minor damage. In recent years, however, many dental patients are using porcelain veneers to make their teeth whiter and more attractive, or getting them in conjunction with whitening treatments.
When your teeth have become worn down or stained over time, teeth whitening is the simplest solution, and the options offered by Dr. Marzban have a good chance of making your teeth look whiter and brighter than they have in years. However, if you have any previous dental work, such as veneers or crowns, they will not respond to the whitening process. It is therefore important that your dentist take the time to match your veneers to the shade you want your teeth to be.
The easiest way to do this is to bring you in for teeth whitening just before you get your veneers put in. This allows your dentist to see what color your teeth are at their whitest, and then use veneers that work with that color.
Not only will this technique ensure that all your teeth look the same color after your whitening, it will encourage you to keep your teeth stain-free so that they continue to match your porcelain veneers.
