Unfortunately not: Whiteners have a chemical product that specifically has a chemical reaction to whiten your teeth, and does not have the ability to whiten the shade of your existing fillings. To match the whiter shade of your teeth post whitening, it is recommended to replace your old fillings with new composite fillings.
A 41-year-old member asked:

Replace: The best way to whiten your fillings is to have your dentist replace them with whiter fillings. The are no available solutions on the market that can alter the shade of an existing composite fillings.
