Can the shade of dental crowns be lightened?

For teeth in your sightline, we typically make dental crowns from ceramic porcelain, which we can customize to match your teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile. However, once we choose the shade of your crown, and we place it in your mouth, we cannot change the hue. This is because ceramic porcelain will not respond to bleaching treatment.

For this reason, if you a looking to enhance your smile with porcelain crowns or veneers in Garland, Dr. Jung may recommend that you complete a teeth whitening procedure beforehand. Whitening your teeth before a cosmetic dental procedure ensures that your teeth are the shade you want when you have your restorative work done.

If you are restoring a tooth that takes the brunt of your chewing force like a molar, Dr. Jung may recommend gold for your restoration. Gold is the most durable material for replacing a natural tooth, and you typically can't see it on molars in the back of your mouth. Gold provides the durability and function that you rely on from your molars.

Whether you need a tooth repaired, or you're looking to enhance your smile, Dr. Jung has the skills and expertise to help you reach your goals. Contact our dental today at (972) 272-3585 for more information on cosmetic dentistry or tooth crowns in Garland, TX.
