Tooth Whitening Doesn’t Work for Everyone

If you have tried a million tooth whitening products, both over the counter and products from your dentist, but still have not had any results, tooth whitening may not work.


If you have had cosmetic dental bonding, tooth colored fillings, porcelain veneers, inlays, onlays or dental implants you will not have successful results with any type of tooth whitening.

Although there are some professional tooth whitening treatments that can remove intrinsic or interior staining; cosmetically enhanced teeth, and restored teeth, will have to be brightened by other cosmetic dental procedures.

Tooth Whitening Alternatives

The team from the Forest Dental Center in Lynchburg can suggest several whitening alternatives after checking your teeth and gums. Before proceeding, x-rays and digital pictures along with a thorough examination performed by a team member from your Lynchburg dental office will be conducted.

Porcelain Veneers Instead of Tooth Whitening

The Forest Dental Center explains that one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures for stained teeth is porcelain veneers. Placed by your dentist it takes two or three appointments for results.

Porcelain veneers are beautiful, look natural and can last for a decade or more.  As long as you practice good oral hygiene habits you’re new veneers will maintain their beauty. Porcelain veneers are permanent and require a small amount of enamel removal.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Cosmetic dental bonding is an excellent tooth bleaching alternative and takes place in the dental office.  This cosmetic dental procedure is reversible and is performed in a single dental visit.

You can have whiter teeth even if traditional tooth whitening methods haven’t worked in the past. Call Forest Dental Center for a no obligation cosmetic dentistry consultation. The team of Lynchburg dentists has the experience to give you a beautiful smile.
