How to whiten stained old dentures?

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: tinkerbell  (2 years ago)
Hello!

I have a set of approximately 30-year old dentures. They still fit pretty well so I do not want to replace them. When they made the impressions for these dentures, I had a severe gag reflex. They have been stained by coffee and the like. What can I use to whiten them? Can I use those teeth whitening products? Please advise!

Thank you!

M not sure if whitening products would help. Some websites suggest using some denture whitening products. There some sites that describe some ways on how to remove stains by using kitchen products, as m not sure if they could damage ur dentures I will not mention them here but feel free to google "whitening Dentures" n read about all the different methods.
u can visit ur dentist and see if he/she can give them a good polish.

There is nothing that will whiten aged dentures. Nothing. Denture teeth never change colors, anyway.

Is it the pink base that is turning orange? If so, you can have a rebase instead of a reline. All the plastic is taken out and replaced by new plastic. The rebase impression can be inside your existing dentures, so it does not gag you. Count on the lab needing 2 days to work on your dentures
