Teeth whitening is the most commonly trusted cosmetic dentistry procedure for many of our patients. Our whitening specialists can help correct discoloration caused by staining, aging, and by drinks such as wine, coffee, and tea. We offer both in-office teeth whitening and take home teeth whitening here at Perry Dental Health, your San Antonio dental teeth whitening specialist.
When you visit our San Antonio dentist office, locally known as one of the top family dental office in our area, to brighten your smile with whiter teeth, you’ll be presented with either in-office or at-home teeth whitening procedures. The first professional option is commonly referred to as in-office whitening. This teeth whitening procedure is performed in our San Antonio dental office. During an appointment, your gentle dental professional will apply a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. The entire office visit generally takes about 90 minutes and you will be able to see results immediately.
Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. (Many patients wear their teeth whitening trays after dinner and before bed.) A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just four to six weeks.
There are many teeth whitening options available to our patients; both in-office procedures performed at our San Antonio, Texas dental office and procedures you can perform at-home. When it comes to teeth whitening, you have many options to choose from and our expert local dentists will help you decide which technique or combination of techniques is right for you. A fresh, beautiful smile can build confidence and many teeth whitening techniques are available for you to get that bright smile back.
There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening options, and one type of readily accessible whitening product is commonly referred to as “paint-on” teeth whiteners. Paint-on whiteners can be purchased over-the-counter and generally are less effective though less expensive than teeth whitening strips or professional options. Paint-on whiteners consist of a gel that is applied to the tooth using a small brush. Paint-on whitening gel hardens into a film that coats the teeth and dissolves in the mouth. As with any teeth whitening regimen, it is wise to consult with a professional local dentist before use.
Teeth whitening strips are thin, flexible plastic (polyethylene) strips with a thin film of hydrogen peroxide on one side. Whitening strip kits come with two types of strips: strips for the upper teeth and strips for the lower teeth. The whitening agent is applied by placing the strips across your teeth and gently pressing the strips into place to ensure contact with all your teeth. Teeth whitening strips are typically worn for 30 minutes a day, twice a day. The duration of treatment will vary.
There are advantages to utilizing the teeth whitening options offered at Perry Dental Health. Modern tooth whitening systems are highly effective and have dramatic results. Many celebrities consistently whiten their teeth to improve their appearance. With whiter teeth comes a brighter a smile and a boost to confidence. Having a fresh, healthy smile and the confidence that comes with it is a recipe for leading a fresh, healthy life.
Our patients are always curious about the possible disadvantages to the in-office and at-home teeth whitening options available. Occasionally, patients may experience some gum or tooth sensitivity when using their trays. These symptoms subside when whitening is discontinued for several days.
There are some other ways to whiten your teeth that are offered in our local San Antonio dentist office. Accelerated whitening is an option for some patients. This process can result in whiter, brighter teeth in just one visit. Please consult with the dentist to see if this procedure may work for you.
Occasionally, teeth may be stained in a way that limits the effectiveness of whitening. In those instances, porcelain laminates or crowns are an excellent alternative. These are all alternatives that are offered to our
patients at our local dentist office and if ever our patients need quality dental implants in San Antonio you can also rely on our expertise.
Some patients ask how you can achieve teeth whitening with special toothpaste and mouthwash. The least expensive options are whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes. Designed to have “whitening” capabilities, toothpastes and mouthwashes work to remove surface stains using mild abrasives. However, unlike the materials used in professional whitening procedures, these products do not lighten the actual color shade of the tooth. Whitening toothpastes affect surface stains and may mildly lighten your teeth.
