I’ve had one tooth in the front that has been opaque since it came in, though no one knows why. I really want to get this fixed as it has bothered me for years. Do you think teeth whitening will work?

Unfortunately, teeth whitening is not a good option in this particular case. Because it is only one opaque tooth, the teeth whitening will accentuate the differences between the opaque tooth and the other teeth. Your best option is to porcelain veneers, even just one veneer on the opaque tooth would work. Be careful, though. Covering opaqueness requires special skill that only the most expert cosmetic dentists can do. I’d look on the mynewsmile.com website and see who he recommends for New Jersey. You’ll want this done right the first time, especially since it has bothered you for so long.
