Can You Get Teeth Whitening After a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are caps that are placed over the teeth. They are designed to protect a tooth that is severely weakened, cracked, or broken. Dental crowns are typically made out of porcelain and offer a natural appearance and look just like the other teeth in your mouth.
If you have a tooth in poor shape, it can experience further damage with every bite you take. A crown can prevent this damage and provide you with a stronger tooth and a healthier bite. Here at Wells Family Dental Group, we are pleased to offer CEREC one day crowns.
In the past, patients who needed crowns would have to visit our office at least twice and wear a temporary crown for a short period of time. Thanks to cutting-edge CEREC technology, this is a thing of the past. You can complete your crown treatment in a single office visit. This is great news if you lead a busy lifestyle and are unsure of how to fit a crown into your schedule.
Many of our dental crown patients ask us if they can get teeth whitening after receiving a crown. We discourage this as it can cause the crown to stand out instead of blend in seamlessly with the other teeth. If you do want to whiten your teeth, do so before to ensure the crown will match your whitened teeth.
