DayWhite Teeth Whitening
Took my teenage children in for a routine exam and cleaning. Everyone was friendly and professional. The tech was so great with my kids. He made it fun for all of us. Dr. Eck is and the tech both were able to teach my kids how to better care for their oral care. I’m looking forward to our next visit.

Brighter Smiles You’ll Love to Share
Cosmetic dentistry has risen in popularity in recent years, and advances in the field have opened these services up to more people than ever before. The most common request we hear from our patients who want to improve the appearance of their smiles is – “Can you whiten my teeth?” If you’ve tried all the over the counter whitening products on the market with no change in the appearance of your smile, pick up the phone and call Legacy Dental SA instead. Our skilled cosmetic dentist can offer professional whitening treatments you can perform in the comfort of home. What’s the difference between store bought whitening kits and our professional products? Simple – ours deliver predictable results with teeth up to ten shades brighter. Schedule your cosmetic dentistry consultation at our San Antonio dental office to get started today.
Causes of Dental Discoloration
There are many causes of dental discoloration, and we will examine your smile to create a whitening plan geared toward addressing these underlying concerns. Some of the most common causes of dental discoloration include:
DayWhite Teeth Whitening
The DayWhite teeth whitening system is available from the manufacturers of the innovative Zoom! teeth whitening system. DayWhite kits include customized application trays and professional-grade 14% hydrogen peroxide gel. The DayWhite process is simple. You’ll place a small amount of whitening gel on your teeth using your custom application trays. For best results, you should leave the application tray in place for 30 minutes each day. You should start to see improvement after the first few applications, and most patients see their desired result after 10 to 14 days of treatment. DayWhite is also a great way to touch up the results of in-office teeth whitening by taking a “whitening weekend.” If you had a professional whitening treatment in the past, and you’re starting to see some discoloration again, simply use your DayWhite kit for a few days. In most cases, two to three applications are adequate to help patients achieve their previous whitening results even a year or more after their initial whitening treatment.
Maintaining Your Teeth Whitening Results
After you achieve your desired teeth whitening results, your smile will not be brilliant white forever. The enamel is still susceptible to the same staining elements it always has been. Limiting your consumption of dark foods and drinks, foregoing tobacco use, brushing and flossing each day, and visiting us for professional teeth cleanings will extend the results for several months (or even years for some patients). When it’s time for a touchup, let us know. We can provide refill treatment, using your custom application trays and a new round of DayWhite gel.
