Post Whiter dentures?

I smoke AND drink coffee. I am starting to notice that my bottom teeth (real ones) are beginning to look whiter than my upper teeth (false). Is there anything I can use to make my denture whiter?

Hi I am a smooker too with a partial and a bridge. Have you ever soaked it in peroxide --mix it half and half with water? If that doesn't help try Clorox--no I am not nuts--I have done this and it works with tough Blueberry stains. One teaspoon clorox and enough water to cover the teeth. Follow this with a good scrubbing of bakeing soda--which by the way will also bring those choppers back to their original color and shine. Hope this helps!

I just read your post again and you didn't say if the top ones come out--If they don't then scrub daily with the soda on your toothbrush. They will be back to normal in no time at all. Your gumbs will be healthier also! Smile !

I've seen many a bleached denture. You may end up with the pink acrylic turning white as well as the teeth if you're not careful.

listen to LK, do not bleach your denture. you will end up with pink to white "gums", not to mention that acrylic and bleach do not mix!
