Lumineers can be used to fix cosmetic dental imperfections like stains, discolorations and chipped or misaligned teeth.

All of my teeth are crowned and I would like to have them whiter. Can this be done?

Any whitening procedure works by lifting the color out of your enamel which is the outermost part of your tooth with a peroxide based formula. Dental crowns and fillings cannot be whitened through this procedure. However, depending on the type of crowns you have, you may be able to non-invasively whiten your teeth through Lumineers. Lumineers are ultrathin veneers made out of cerinate porcelain which can be bonded directly to your crowns. So if you are looking for a permanent whitening option without the hassle of removing all of your old crowns, look for a Lumineer-certified dentist to help give your smile a "facelift."

No crowns can not be made whiter. Crowns have to be replaced in order to change their shade.
