Whiten first then choose a color to match your natural teeth. Your veneers will not change.

Whitening teeth with veneers in place

Hi Shatha...of course you can bleach your natural teeth and the bleaching process will have no effect on your veneers. If you are happy with the shade of your veneers, have the rest of your teeth bleached to match their color. The finished product should look beautiful!

Whitening Teeth With Existing Veneers

I would whtien your teeth first to obtain the desired color for your natural teeth.  If the front two veneers are noticeably a different color than your natural teeth, then replace them.  If not, leave them as is.  Good luck.

Porcelain Veneers Will Not Whiten

If the Veneers now match your other teeth in color, then after bleaching your other teeth, the Veneers will appear darker, by contrast. Wait at least 2 days after the bleaching before chosing a color for your new Veneers.

Replace veneers after whitening

Your veneers likely won't match after whitening, but this is a simple fix.  Just be sure to get your teeth as white as you want, then veneer to match.

Veneers and Teeth Whitening.

Your veneers will not whiten. If you want whiter teeth then you would have to replace the veneers.  They can be cut off and it is easy enough for a good cosmetic dentist to do.
