Why You Should Whiten Before Cosmetic Treatments

Are you thinking of getting any cosmetic dental procedures done? Whether its bonding, veneers, replacing your fillings or any other treatment, you’ll want to consider whitening your teeth first and here’s why!

Dental Work Won’t Respond to Whitening

When you opt for restorative treatments such as composite bonding, porcelain crowns or fillings, they are designed to match your natural tooth colour. When you next go in for your whitening treatment, you’ll find that the ceramic material won’t react to the whitening agents. So if you want to make your smile brighter after restorative treatments, you’ll have to change your entire restoration!

More Natural Dental Work

Whitening your teeth before your dental work gives you a brighter base to compare to. In order to ensure a more natural look, our dentists need to match the material to your natural tooth colour. If you schedule your restoration after whitening, we can match the materials to your newly brightened smile! This will also help you know when it’s time to touch up on your whitening treatment as you will notice a colour difference between your enamel and dental work.


One of the main reasons people invest in cosmetic dentistry is to achieve long-lasting results. Teeth whitening sets the stage for a smile makeover that can last several years with the right care. When your teeth are at their whitest, the cosmetic work done will look better and maintain its brilliance for longer.

Effective Dental Work

Whitening your teeth can eliminate any existing stains and discolouration on your teeth. This is important because stains and discolouration can mask the results of any cosmetic dental treatment, making it far less effective. Whiter teeth help give you a cleaner slate to work with and allows you to unlock the full potential of your cosmetic treatment and goals to be achieved.

Cost-Effective Beauty

We know cosmetic dental treatments can be an investment. When your teeth are already in their best shape, you may need less extensive cosmetic work done. This can be a cost-effective approach to achieving your dream smile.
