Teeth whitening with crowns

Teeth whitening with crowns

Sometimes your teeth bother you and you need a crown. Many people have crowns. A crown is a kind of “fake tooth”. You would like to see this “fake tooth” a bit whiter. That is why we at Fleeck understand that you are wondering: can you whiten teeth with crowns? And can you whiten your teeth with a bridge? In this blog we explain everything about how to whiten teeth with crowns, bridges or fillings.

Whitening with crowns

You can get a crown from the dentist if you have a broken tooth or a hole in your enamel. Only a dentist can install a crown. Because a crown is a kind of fake tooth, the crown will not color with your real teeth. A crown also does not have the same composition as a natural tooth. A dentist often chooses a crown with the same color as your own teeth.

Can you whiten teeth with crowns?

Although you can whiten teeth with a crown, the crown does not color. On the other hand, it is not harmful to your teeth or your teeth. The quality of the crown will not decrease if you whiten your teeth with a crown. However, the crown will not bleach with your other teeth. That’s because a crown is dead material and has a solid color. To get whiter teeth with our Fleeck formula you need a living tooth. Therefore it is better to follow a different order if you want to whiten teeth with a crown. It is better to first whiten your teeth and then have the crown placed. Your dentist can then make the crown the same color as your bleached teeth. Therefore, the crown suits your white smile better.

Getting white teeth with fillings

If the dentist finds a hole in your teeth, you can get a filling. The material of a filling is amalgam. Amalga (silver colored) is a material that has been used for centuries as a filler in the teeth. In addition, people also have many white fillings. This is also less noticeable in the mouth. White fillings are also often used if you have a blow to your teeth. Many people have had a hole or broken off a tooth. As a result, many people have a filling in their teeth.

Can you whiten teeth with a filling?

If you have a white filling, it will be less noticeable that you will whiten your teeth. In addition, the filling will discolour over the years, just like the rest of your teeth. Still, it is wise to wait at least two weeks before teeth whitening after the filling has been placed. After two weeks, the filling is well anchored in your teeth. If you then whiten your teeth with a filling, you can keep track of the color of your teeth with a conveniently supplied shade guide. This allows you to keep good color of your teeth.

Tip: Do you suffer from a hole? Then go to the dentist and don’t bleach your teeth. It can hurt a lot to bleach your teeth with a hole in the mouth.

Getting a nice smile with a dental bridge

If your teeth are damaged, the dentist can choose a bridge. If you no longer have one or more teeth and / or molars, the dentist can also opt for a bridge. In addition, a bridge is attached to two or more pillars. A bridge consists of two or more crowns that fit on a pillar and an intermediate part. The bridge is set to the teeth with special dental cement. You can whiten your teeth with a bridge. However, it is not wise because the color of the bridge will not color. If you still want whiter teeth, it is best to ask your dentist for advice.

White teeth with a crown, filling or dental bridge

It is important if you whiten your teeth with a crown, filling or dental bridge to seek advice from the dentist. Perhaps you already have a dead tooth, so be sure to get some advice from your dentist. Especially if you already have sensitive teeth. Often it is not bad if you whiten your teeth with a crown or a filling. The crown or filling simply does not color.
