Can You Whiten Dentures?

Dentures are a practical solution to tooth loss, but they can lose their shine and become stained over time. At Jensen Beach Dental, we want you to love your smile, and that includes the shade of your denture teeth.

Tips for Whitening Your Dentures in Jensen Beach, FL

The safest and fastest way to professionally whiten your dentures is through the dental office. A dental professional can clean your dentures and help lift away most surface stains, finishing off with a polish. Typically, patients have their dentures cleaned twice yearly.

You can also soak your dentures overnight in a denture bath with a cleaning and disinfecting solution like Fixodent to help keep the denture looking its best. Additionally, you can purchase denture cleaning pastes at your local drugstore. Make sure the pastes are intended for dentures. Regular fluoride toothpaste is too abrasive.

While the above ideas can brighten your dentures, it’s important to avoid store-bought whitening kits that are not intended for dentures. As with fluoride toothpaste, whitening kits intended for teeth are just too abrasive and can seriously damage your dentures.

About Dentures Near Me

We offer dentures, partial dentures, and implant-supported dentures in our dental office.

Dentures take over following full extractions, restoring your bite and smile aesthetics. They work with gravity and the contours of your bone for stabilization.

Partial dentures stand in for incomplete tooth loss. They need healthy remaining teeth and bone for support, along with clips.

Implant-supported dentures in Jensen Beach, FL are ideal for those who want the added stability of dental implants. Your dentist secures four to six implant posts into your jawbone and fixes your denture to these posts.
