Bonded composites are not affected by whitening.
The best way to change the shade is to replace the restorations. You can also add another layer of a whiter material, however this is not as effective.

Often, users of otc whiteners get the unpleasant surprise of mismatched teeth for that reason .Consult your dentist about a plan to whiten your own teeth and then poosibly replace the old bonding material with more of the same or porcelain veneers.
