Can Teeth Be Bleached to Match Something Specific?

I have a rather strange question. I want to match my teeth to the whites of my eyeballs. Is that possible to do with teeth whitening? I know I probably sound crazy but I love symmetry and I want to get everything on my face to match perfectly.


Dear Henrietta,

I should not be surprised by the varied and creative questions that people come up with, but every once in a while one comes along that actually does take me by surprise and I love it. The answer to that question would mostly depend on how white your eyeballs are. There is a limit to how much teeth whitening can do.

The best way to match something perfectly is with porcelain veneers. Your cosmetic dentist can blend shades together to get an exact match.

This is why when people are getting porcelain veneers, but also need to whiten their teeth because they will not be getting enough porcelain veneers to cover each of their exposed teeth we suggest they whiten first. It is much simpler to match veneers to whitening rather than whitening to veneers.

I hope this helps to answer your wonderfully interesting question.
