Should I whiten my teeth before getting dental veneers?

January 17, 2021

Veneers compared to imperfect teeth.
Choosing your dental veneers shade

Are you thinking about cosmetic dentistry? Dental veneers are an amazing option to totally redo your smile quickly and beautifully. Best of all – you control the outcome. With dental veneers, patients get to choose their perfect size, shape, and shade of the smile they want.

When choosing the shade of your smile, you will have to consider several aspects. Some people want a natural looking smile close to their natural color while others want a bright, white Hollywood smile. But what if you aren’t getting full-mouth veneers? How will you make your new teeth match your existing teeth? How much time and money do you want to invest? Should you whiten your teeth before dental veneers?

Here are three options for partial Dental Veneers and choosing the shade:

  • Match Your Veneers to Your Natural Tooth Color
    • Pros:
      • Teeth color will match without having to constantly whiten
      • Costs less over time since you will have no to minimal upkeep
      • Maintain the natural look of your original smile while changing the size and shape of teeth
      • Only have to place veneers on teeth you want to change the size and shape, maintaining more of your natural tooth structure
    • Cons:
      • You cannot change the color or shade of your teeth
      • If you ever do decide to whiten your teeth in the future, the veneers will remain the darker shade
  • Whiten Your Teeth To Match Your New Veneers
    • Pros:
      • Achieve a brighter, whiter smile
      • Do not have to invest in full-mouth dental veneers
      • Only have to place veneers on teeth you want to change the size and shape, maintaining more of your natural tooth structure
    • Cons:
      • More upkeep as you will have to whiten teeth to maintain consistency of shade between natural teeth and veneers
      • Costs more over time to maintain even color
  • Get Full Mouth Veneers
    • Pros:
      • Achieve a beautiful, white smile with perfect size and shape teeth
      • No to minimal upkeep
      • Don’t have to worry about the color ever changing
    • Cons:
      • Significant investment
      • Requires more of your natural tooth to be removed on more teeth

Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson will discuss the pros and cons of each option to help you decide what is best for you and if you should whiten your teeth before getting dental veneers. Check out our Before and After Smile Gallery!

Thanksgiving 2020

November 26, 2020

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson @ 8:39 pm

Wow! What a year it has been to say the least. No one could’ve ever guessed what 2020 would bring us. It is surreal. I can’t believe it happened. And even though it was quite awful, it truly did teach us about what matters most in life.

Reflecting back on what has happened in the past year, it’s just something you couldn’t have imagined. We were coming off a fantastic 2019, celebrating our 5th year in business, the birth of my son, finding out Dr. Safi was going to be having a baby. Our team was a solid bunch of team members, spouses, kids, and we were just enjoying everything we had built together.

We started 2020 carrying over the celebrations by taking a team trip to Temecula in February to celebrate Jayme’s, Kim’s, and my birthday. Little did we know it was the last time we would get to freely celebrate without a care in the world this year. We had a blast. It’s crazy to think that just a few weeks after, we found ourselves in the midst of an unprecedented global pandemic.

We didn’t know what this virus was or what it could do. Everything came to a sudden halt, as we scrambled to find out everything we could about the virus. I was so proud of our team and how each person stepped up to help us research, prepare new safety protocols, and secure the proper equipment. Undoubtedly everyone was scared and anxious, but there was not one complaint or act of hesitation when everyone could have easily fallen apart. Our team came together, formulated a plan, and forged ahead to take care of our patients when they needed us the most.

We weren’t sure what was going to happen, but we knew we could rely on each other to show up everyday and perform. If any one of us was struggling or scared, the rest of were right there to support each other.

The summer continued to be a rollercoaster of steps forward and back with the pandemic, social injustice, civil unrest, a recession, and a contentious election. We couldn’t see family outside of our homes, our friends, or even spend time together outside of work. But, our friendship and reliance on each other helped us get through. We became our own little family unit.

We made it through summer as normal as possible. No one got sick. My son celebrated his first birthday. We added two more babies to our family, celebrated two wedding anniversaries, and even ended up winning the “Best General Dentist” in Orange County award.

Now here we are on Thanksgiving day. As I sit here and think about everything we have been through, I can’t help but be filled with joy and pride. Not an ounce of sadness, anxiety, or regrets. We have made everyday the best we could and kept each other safe. I am so grateful we had that one last trip together in February and look forward to the new memories we will make together once this is over.

This Thanksgiving is more important than any one in the past and I hope my team knows how incredibly thankful we are for each and every one of you.

Happy Thanksgiving! Wishing everyone health, happiness, and smiles.

Invisalign Smile Makeover

November 17, 2020

Read this article to learn more about this amazing Invisalign makeover!

By Dr. Jeremy B. Jorgenson

We love Invisalign for more reasons that we can count. It may be because almost all of us here at Advanced Dental Care have undergone the treatment and been amazed by the results or because we have witnessed first hand how many smiles have been transformed by this clear and easy-to-use technology.

This patient chose Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson for her Invisalign makeover, because he is a Gold Plus Invisalign provider with hundreds of hours of training and casework. At the initial consult, the patient discussed her concerns about the look of her smile with Dr. Jorgenson. Not only were there aesthetic concerns, but Dr. Jorgenson also determined she was experiencing both severe crowding and slight overbite which also affect the health of the smile. Our staff performed an iTero digital scan and let the patient know we could correct it all in a little over a year. The patient was ecstatic and wanted to move forward right away.


Before getting stated with the Invisalign treatment, Dr. Jorgenson needed to ensure there would be enough space for the teeth once they were properly aligned. He removed one tooth on each side of the upper arch. Once that tooth removal procedure was completed, the patient was ready to start her trays.

At her first treatment visit, Dr. Jorgenson placed attachments on the teeth to assist with moving the teeth correctly, made sure the initial trays fit properly, and gave instructions on wear. Invisalign trays need to be worn for approximately 22 hours a day and only removed for eating and brushing/flossing to ensure the best results in a timely manner.

The patient started with 2-week wear, switching to the next set of trays in her prescription every 2 weeks. With great on-track results at each subsequent visit, Dr. Jorgenson switched her to 1-week wear. She also chose to use Propel to speed up the process.

In about 15 months, she was finished with treatment and now has an absolutely gorgeous, straight smile she can be proud of! We are so thankful to have been a part of her Invisalign journey.

Both dental bonding and porcelain veneers are great ways to enhance the beauty of your smile. Whether you have gaps, cracks, chips, or some stubborn discoloration, they are both effective at making corrections. However, before you can decide which one to choose, you need to understand the difference between veneers and bonding in Costa Mesa. There are also several factors to consider in order to choose the best one for you. Continue reading to learn what those are.
