Will whitening make my teeth look too white?

This is a common concern, but we can assure you that professional teeth whitening treatment won’t make your teeth look unnaturally white. If you’ve seen people whose teeth look too white to be natural, you’re probably seeing their veneers, not their real teeth.

The reason your teeth can’t get too white is that they have a natural level of whiteness. No matter how much you whiten, you simply can’t make your teeth any whiter than their natural shade.

The natural whiteness of your teeth depends on a number of things. Genetics plays a large part, and tooth color can range from a bluish white to a slightly yellowish color. You may be someone whose layer of enamel is thinner, which allows the underlying dentin to show through and cast a yellow appearance.

At Northern Hills Dental, our goal is to help you achieve a bright, natural smile. We have the experience and skill to completely transform your smile without it ever looking fake or unnatural. Teeth whitening is a great example of a treatment that will just bring back a natural sparkle and revive a tired smile.
