Dental Crown for Safe Teeth Whitening

Can I whiten my teeth with a temporary crown?

While it is possible to whiten your teeth with a temporary crown, it is important to select a safe and effective treatment. Some treatments may damage your temporary crown, so it is essential to consult with your dentist to determine the best option for you.

What types of teeth whitening treatments are safe for temporary crowns?
Two types of teeth whitening treatments that are safe for temporary crowns are in-office whitening and take-home whitening.

  • In-office whitening is a more intense treatment than take-home whitening. In-office whitening involves applying a bleaching gel to your teeth and using a special light to activate the gel. This helps the gel to penetrate the enamel and bleach the teeth more quickly.
  • Take-home whitening is a less intense treatment that involves using a whitening gel and tray at home. You wear the tray with the gel for a certain amount of time each day, usually for several weeks.

While it is important to note that some take-home whitening trays are not compatible with temporary crowns, it is also important to be sure to talk to your dentist about which take-home whitening trays are safe for your specific crown.

How can I protect my temporary crown during the teeth whitening process?

Here are some tips for protecting your temporary crown during the teeth whitening process:

  • Avoid eating hard, crunchy, chewy, or sticky foods.
  • Refrain from chewing on hard objects, such as pens or pencils.
  • Brush and floss gently around the temporary crown.
  • If you are using take-home whitening, be sure to use the tray that your dentist provides you with.

Will my temporary crown be as white as my permanent crown?

Despite being made from a different material than permanent crowns, temporary crowns are typically not as white. However, you should still see a noticeable improvement in the whiteness of your teeth.

How long will it take to see results from teeth whitening with a temporary crown?

With a temporary crown, it may take several weeks to see noticeable results from teeth whitening. Nevertheless, the amount of time it takes will vary depending on the type of whitening treatment you choose and how consistent you are with your routine. While home whitening tray treatments typically produce results within a few days or weeks, professional whitening treatments can provide noticeable whitening in as little as a few hours.

What are some additional tips for getting the best results from teeth whitening with a temporary crown?

Additional tips for teeth whitening with a temporary crown:

  • Use a whitening toothpaste and mouthwash, as these products can help to remove surface stains and discoloration.
  • Be consistent with your teeth whitening routine. The more often you whiten your teeth, the better the results you will see.
  • Be patient, as it may take several weeks to see noticeable results from teeth whitening.
  • Avoid using whitening strips or trays, especially those that are not specifically designed for temporary crowns
  • For best results, carefully follow your dentist’s instructions when using in-office whitening.
