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!

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.
