Our dentists at Sweetwater Dental Studio provide a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services to improve our patients’ smiles. One of our most popular treatments is professional teeth whitening. Have you considered investing in this effective treatment? Continue reading to learn the answers to three commonly asked questions regarding teeth whitening.
Will this procedure work if I have a crown or veneers? Teeth whitening is made to bleach the natural tooth’s enamel. Unfortunately, this means it will not change the color of restorations such as dental crowns or veneers. Our dental team provides porcelain dental crowns and veneers designed to closely match the beautiful natural color of an individual’s tooth. If you have a singular restoration, it may be more noticeable with the color change of your surrounding teeth after a whitening treatment.
Can I use this treatment with braces? Typically, dentists will recommend waiting for a whitening treatment only after your braces are removed. If an individual is eager to whiten their smile, it is still possible to work around the brackets on the teeth. It will also be encouraged to have an additional whitening treatment once the braces are removed in order to even out the color on your smile.
What’s causing my tooth discoloration? There are several different factors that can cause tooth discoloration, and your Sweetwater dentist may want to investigate what is the cause for yours. Food and drinks, certain medications, and tobacco can stain and discolor a smile. Figuring out what is staining your smile can help to eliminate the problem altogether after your whitening treatment.
Regardless of the situation, contact your Sweetwater Dental Studio dentist to see if a professional teeth whitening treatment could benefit your smile.
