Tooth Whitening and Porcelain Veneers

Serving Patients in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Lawton, and Norman, OK

Tooth whitening treatments can affect the color of porcelain veneers in a surprising way. Since porcelain dental veneers are translucent, the shade and color of the porcelain veneer can be influenced by the shade and color of the tooth it covers.

The translucency of the porcelain veneer is what makes it such a desirable material and such an effective remedy for correcting flaws in your teeth. Tooth whitening systems cannot penetrate or change the color of the porcelain veneer, but can penetrate the tooth it covers from underneath producing a lighter natural tooth and making the porcelain veneer appear lighter as well.

Tooth whitening systems can only produce a change in tooth color, but porcelain dental veneers can solve many cosmetic dental problems such as chipped, cracked or broken teeth, close gaps in the spacing of your teeth, correct uneven or crooked teeth and the signs of aging and worn or faded enamel.
