Many people seek a brighter smile through teeth whitening. Though teeth whitening treatments can successfully whiten teeth up to eight shades, the procedure does not work on all teeth.
Teeth whitening can only whiten natural teeth that are free from artificial materials. Crowns and other restorations will not respond to whitening. So what can you do if you have or need crowns and want whiter teeth?
If you do not have crowns yet, the solution is easy. Simply get your teeth whitened first to the shade you want, and then get crowns afterwards to match the newly whitened teeth.
If you have existing crowns, these crowns will need to be replaced. New crowns can be made to match your desired shade of whiteness. If there are natural teeth in your smile along with crowns, you will likely want to get these teeth whitened to your desired shade first, and then get crowns to match.
