Dentures, Dental Implants, and Professional Teeth Whitening
It is possible to have a white smile even with dental implants and dentures. Your dentist can advise on professional teeth whitening when you have dental restoration work.
– Having your teeth whitened prior to dental restoration work ensures a uniform colour for all the teeth.
– A partial denture will be made to match the rest of your teeth after whitening.
– The crown on an implant is made from porcelain and is resistant to staining and whitening.
– The denture is created from different material that absorbs stains, but is resistant to whitening. Keep these fresh with professional polishing as well as regular brushing.
“Since dentures are typically made out of a different material than the dental crown that completes your dental implant, they are more apt to absorb stains. It’s best if stains are removed daily through regular brushing and cleaning of your full or partial dentures.”
