One of the easiest ways to enhance your smile cosmetically is through teeth whitening in San Antonio. Whitening teeth is a simple, non-invasive method to improve your overall appearance and bring confidence to your daily interactions with people.
Before beginning the procedure of teeth whitening, William J. Stewart Jr. DDS Advanced Family & Cosmetic Dentistry recommends each patient meet with their dentist for a consultation. A dental consultation will help you determine which whitening method is best for you. We can also discuss foods and habits that you can avoid to keep your teeth whiter longer, such as smoking.
While visiting with your dentist, you can also discuss other aspects of your smile you would like to improve. New, industry-leading technology provides methods to correct any dental issue you may have.
During your consultation, decide just how white you want your teeth to be. Depending on the whitening protocol chosen, your teeth can be enhanced by three to eight shades in just an hour. An in-office procedure produces a degree of lightning that cannot be achieved with a grocery store product. During your treatment, your dentist may apply a coating to protect your gums and roots while the bleaching agent is applied. A laser is then used to make the bleach work faster.
An alternative protocol is to have your dentist prescribe a take-home kit. These kits are customized for each patient. First, a mold is made of your teeth. Using the mold, the lab team creates trays to hold the bleach. While this method may take longer, it is more economical and more convenient for many San Antonio patients. Teeth whitening results from either method can last from six months to two years.
It is vital to know that teeth whitening in San Antonio does not affect existing fillings, veneers, or crowns. It is also temporary and may require follow-up visits to keep them white.
