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!

Back-to-School – Smile Smart Tips

Smile Smart Tips for Success!

Going back-to-school is bittersweet for both parents and students.  No one wants summer to end, but students enjoy going back to school to see their friends again, getting back into school sports, and moving one step closer to graduation!

Even though going back-to-school is an exciting time, students can experience anxiety.  Anxiety can interfere with sleep, wellness, and performance.  But don’t worry!  We’ve compiled some smile smart tips to help you smoothly transition back into the school year.

Smile Smart Tip # 1

Of course our first tip is to complete your dental exam and x-rays, and cleaning, before school starts.  These services are often covered at 100% by dental insurance.  Nothing can distract students more than throbbing, achy tooth pain that requires an emergency dental visit. Make sure your dental health is an A+ for academic success!

Smile Smart Tip # 2

Our second tip is to get enough sleep.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends:

  • 9-12 hours for school-age children
  • 8-10 hours for teens
  • 7 or more hours for adults

Not getting restful sleep?  Schedule a consultation for Sleep Apnea or Bruxism.  A custom sleep device to treat sleep apnea can improve sleep quality and reduce chances for heart disease or stroke.  A custom nightguard to prevent grinding that can cause poor sleep, headaches, and aggrevated TMJ.

Our third tip is to choose healthy food and drinks to feel your best and keep your teeth strong and healthy.  Avoid drinks with color additives, sugar, carbonation, or acid to protect against decay and erosion.  Choose foods with calcium, minerals like cheese, yogurt, almonds, leafy greens, and carrots.

Smile Smart Tip # 4

Our fourth tip is to protect your smile during school sports.  An injury can cause broken teeth, dead teeth, and even permanent tooth loss.  Consider a custom athletic mouthguard for school sports in your school colors!

Smile Smart Tip # 5

Brush and floss for at least 2 minutes twice a day to maintain good oral hygiene between dental visits.  Choose a soft bristled toothbrush making circular motions at a 45 degree angle and waxed floss or flosser picks to get the areas in between teeth where your toothbrush can’t reach.
