Does Teeth Whitening Damage Dental Restorations? Explained by an Experienced Buffalo Dentist
Can teeth whitening damage dental restorations? Experienced Buffalo dentist Mark Teach explains how whitening will not damage existing fillings. If you have questions, or would like to schedule a dental appointment, please contact us today.
We always caution our patients who have fillings and similar treatments in their mouths that the bleach will lighten the tooth structure but will not have much of an effect on porcelain crowns or composite fillings. A lot of the time, if a patient wants to bleach and lighten her or his teeth, we must then redo either crowns or fillings to match the lighter teeth.
