When You’ll Need More Than Whitening

You know that if you have very severe or stubborn stains that you will likely need more that teeth whitening. However, are you certain about other instances in which you may need an alternative treatment? How about what happens once you have your white smile? Will you be set for life, thanks to this one course of whitening? Let’s set the record straight!

You Want To Brighten Your Restorations

Perhaps you have a full denture and you want to whiten up your smile. Maybe you have a crown on a front tooth and want teeth whitening but you don’t know how to brighten your natural teeth and your crown at the same time. Here’s what you need to consider:

  • If you want brighter restorations, such as dentures, crowns, etc., this usually requires replacing the restoration as most whitening treatments do not brighten anything other than your natural tissue
  • If you want to whiten your smile but you have restorations, too, we may need to whiten your natural teeth and then create new restorations to place that will blend with your whitened teeth
  • This is definitely something that calls for a consultation with us!

Your Stains Are Due To Antibiotics

Antibiotics stains? Traditional teeth whitening probably won’t reach those deep stains. You’ll need to talk with us about whether veneers or bonding will offer you the solution you need!

You Want To Keep Your Smile White

Teeth whitening is not “permanent.” Instead, it can last for many years but stains may accumulate again. As a result, if you want a white smile that stays that way, it’s up to you to make smart food choices (don’t eat only staining foods all day or avoid rinsing). You’ll need to brush and floss like a pro and visit us for cleanings as we suggest, too (once every six months will do it).
