Should I whiten my teeth before I have veneers?

Because veneers do not whiten like your natural teeth, it’s a good idea to take into account your tooth color before beginning any restorative cosmetic dentistry. In most cases, veneers cover the front of your natural teeth that are visible when you smile. Teeth that are further back in the mouth, or even the bottom teeth, may not match the new, whiter color of your veneers unless you decide to whiten them before having veneers.

At our Westwood dental office, we create veneers that look beautiful, and also natural. By whitening your teeth before we begin your cosmetic dentistry treatment plan, your final smile results will look brighter overall. For stubbornly stained teeth, such as those with tetracycline stains, pre-treatments are often recommended.

Additionally, it is important that you choose a veneer color that you will be happy with, without looking unnatural. Our Westwood dentists involve you in the entire veneers process, including your accounting for your goals for your smile as well as healthy function and excellent oral health.
