Once placed, porcelain veneers cannot be whitened. The teeth adjacent to veneers can still benefit from teeth whitening procedures, but porcelain cannot be bleached. Porcelain veneers from our McLean area office are shaded to match your adjacent teeth. Porcelain is also stain resistant, allowing your veneers to maintain their pearly-white appearance even as adjacent teeth become discolored. When this happens, a teeth whitening procedure from one of our cosmetic dentists can be used to lighten your teeth and bring your smile back to its most brilliant state.
Prior to Veneer Placement
Our cosmetic dentists may recommend whitening your teeth prior to the placement of porcelain veneers. This allows your dentist to precisely match the whitest shade of adjacent teeth. If you are having several teeth treated with porcelain veneers, this will not be an issue. However, if you are having only a few veneers placed, a teeth whitening procedure beforehand can help ensure beautiful results.
Every smile is unique. During your initial consultation with one of our cosmetic dentists, it can be determine what will be required to provide you with the stunning smile you deserve.
