Can your new artificial teeth be whiter than your natural ones? Yes, of course. False teeth such as dentures, partials, dental bridges or crowns are usually made of porcelain, ceramic or acrylic resin. If you are due to have just a few crowns or a partial denture, the shade should be as similar as possible to your existing teeth. Before the crowns are custom-made for you, the dentist uses a shade chart to match the colour of your new teeth to your natural teeth.
In case of edentulous patients and a full mouth reconstruction, the shade of the new teeth can be chosen by the patient. Many patients choose a whiter shade for their false teeth. No wonder – they want to look younger and more attractive. However, Dental Implants Friends recommend you choose a shade that is 1-3 shades lighter than your natural teeth colour. This way your teeth will still look natural. If you choose ultra white shade, your new artificial teeth might look simply unnatural and there will not be any doubt they are fake.
If you already have crowns or bridges on your dental implants, you need to know they cannot be whitened. However, unlike natural teeth, they do not stain from being exposed to food such as red wine, coffee, tea or cigarettes. If you do not like the colour or shape of your old dental work, you can get new affordable crowns at a dental clinic in Europe. Simply contact a dental clinic which offers superior quality crowns, bridges and dentures.
