Professional Teeth Whitening with Dentures or Dental Implants

It is possible to have bright white teeth when you have dentures or dental implants, but there area few things to consider. Consult with your dentist about the options available to you.

Key takeaways:

-It is best to have professional teeth whitening done before any restoration work is performed.

-The crown (cap) on a dental implant is made of porcelain, so it will be very stain-resistant.D

-Dentures are created from a different material that can absorb stains, but won’t benefit from whitening. Polishing will help keep them fresh, but they might need to be replaced.

“You may also have the option to have your dentures professionally polished to look their best. When it comes to partial dentures, considering teeth whitening before your restoration is going to help you smile look complete!”
