I’ve got a crown in the front. How does crown teeth whitening work? Could you whiten to the point where you match the crown?
Possibly, yes. Whitening is very, very unpredictable because it’s like dyeing someone’s hair. If you dye your hair, you’ll understand what I mean. When you have blonde hair and you try and dye it a color, it’s more likely to take it. If you have darker hair, it’s less likely to take the color. Everyone’s a little bit different. But how does it work if you have a crown? Teeth whitening with a crown presents some unique challenges.
I will say that any type of crowns or fillings do not whiten with the whitening material. Teeth whitening is for natural teeth. Technically, “crown” teeth whitening doesn’t happen. So, what we do is we try to color and match your other teeth with the whitening product to make them match your crown. We are confident that we can get the color of your surrounding teeth to more closely match your crown, but we can never specifically match it perfectly.
