How Do I Whiten My Discolored Veneers?


No matter what kind of veneers you have, there is no way to whiten the color once they have been placed. It is important that you like the color of the veneers you choose initially, and our cosmetic dentist—Michael Kosdon, DDS—often recommends selecting a shade that is slightly whiter if you are unsure about the color you want to pick.

To address the issue of stains and discoloration, porcelain veneers made from high-quality ceramic material should not change color. The porcelain Dr. Kosdon uses for his patients’ veneers is considered colorfast and stain-resistant, providing long-lasting white smiles. If your veneers have discolored, it is likely because they are fabricated from composite resin. Unfortunately, as composite resin ages, it tends to yellow and grow dull. The only way to achieve a whiter smile with composite resin veneers is to replace them with a new set of veneers.
