BL Shades Crowns

Please could anyone post some pictures of BL1-4 shades. Having crowns fitted in September and not sure what shade I should look at. I have off white teeth at the moment and looking something 'celebrity' white whilst still looking fairly natural.

Hello there,
I would suggest using the shade guide with your dentist to choose a shade for your new crowns. Your skin tone should be taken into account when selecting your tooth shade. Just because a shade looks great on the shade guide or on someone you know, doesn't mean it will look the same on you. It may look lighter or darker depending on your skin tone. Your dentist can help you determine which shade your teeth are now and which shade you would like them to be. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
