There are a number of different dental restorations that cannot be whitened. Teeth whitening cannot change the color of:

So, what do you do if you want to whiten your teeth? Your teeth whitening could be approached a number of different ways, depending on what type of dental restorations you have and your desired tooth color.

Let’s assume when you received your dental work, it was matched to the color of your natural teeth. As your natural teeth become discolored, your dental work should have remained more or less the same color. Teeth whitening for your natural teeth can be matched to the whiteness of your restorations.

Perhaps your dental restorations need to be changed anyway. Dental fillings and porcelain veneers, along with most other dental work, does not last forever. If your restorations are ready to be replaced, now is a good time to whiten your teeth to your desired brightness.

In any case, Dr. Pamela Marzban can help you brighten your smile, regardless of your dental work. In some cases, porcelain veneers are used instead of teeth whitening. Or, your dental work may not even be visible, and it may be safe to whiten your teeth without attracting attention to your restorations.
