Teeth Whitening

Amazing, friendly, and cost effective! I don’t have dental insurance and they have a package within their office that acts like dental coverage. It’s very cost effective and gives me a bit more piece of mind. And, even though it may be cost effective, it does not impact their service at all! All of their staff are friendly, polite, and provide top notch care. I have recommended Legacy Dental to all my family and friends!

How Do Tooth Stains Happen?

Teeth can become stained for a wide variety of reasons. One of the most common causes of stains is frequent exposure to certain foods and beverages, including coffee, pasta sauce, tea and other acidic or richly-pigmentated substances. If you smoke or use tobacco, you’re also far more prone to stains over time as the tar begins to collect on your enamel.

However, some stains appear as a natural result of aging, making treatments like teeth whitening very popular among older patients. As enamel becomes worn down, the naturally-yellow dentin layer begins to show more over time. With take-home whitening kits, you can reduce the appearance of yellow stains, whether they are extrinsic (results from external stimuli) or intrinsic (occurring internally.)

What is DayWhite?

DayWhite is a whitening system developed by Philips designed to help patients whiten teeth within the privacy of their own home. The system uses hydrogen peroxide bleaching gels and custom-made trays that are worn on a daily basis for a set period of time. The system offers three strengths of whitening, including 6 percent, 9.5 percent and 14 percent depending on your needs. If you want the fastest whitening possible with the shortest amount of time needed to obtain results, a higher strength is the best option for you. Luckily, the lower strengths give patients the opportunity to whiten teeth, even if they struggle with sensitivity.

How Does Whitening Work?

During your consultation, our dentists will ask any questions you have about your whitening, then get started creating your custom whitening trays. These trays are designed to fit your teeth exactly in order to ensure full coverage and the most effective whitening possible. Simply fill the trays with the prescribed whitening gel, wear them for a set period of time, then remove and brush away any excess. In as little as two weeks, you can achieve a smile that is multiple shades whiter, all without hot whitening lamps and refrigeration of bleaching gels. It’s the most effective, on-the-go whitening solution to date!

Teeth Whitening FAQs

If you’re looking to enhance the natural beauty of your smile, teeth whitening could be what you’re looking for. However, you want to be well informed before committing to the treatment. Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we are asked about teeth whitening in San Antonio. If you don’t see your question listed below, don’t worry! Just give us a call and we’d be happy to get you the information you’re looking for and help you get started.

Many patients are hesitant to commit to teeth whitening because they’re worried that the treatment will hurt. Since professional teeth whitening is entirely custom, you are significantly less likely to experience tooth sensitivity as compared to over-the-counter kits. If you are more prone to sensitive teeth, let us know. By spacing out treatments, avoiding hot beverages, and using a special toothpaste, this unpleasant sensation can be avoided.
If you’re struggling to smile confidently due to stubborn stains and pigmented discoloration, you might be a candidate for teeth whitening. The best way to find out for sure is by seeing us for an initial consultation. This way, our team can conduct a thorough exam and learn more about your smile goals. If your teeth and gums are in good health, we can begin working on your custom treatment plan! If you have any existing dental issues, like gum disease, these will need to be treated before you can undergo teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening does not damage healthy tooth enamel. However, if your teeth have been compromised due to decay or gum disease, the chemicals can cause problems. This is why conducting a comprehensive dental exam beforehand is so important. Additional damage can also come from at-home remedies, like using activated charcoal and hydrogen peroxide. Overuse of whitening products can harm your tooth enamel as well. Ultimately, you should always consult with a dentist before undergoing a whitening treatment of any kind!
No, teeth whitening is not a permanent treatment. Typically, results will last anywhere from a couple months to a few years depending on how well you care for your teeth. To prolong your results, implement a solid at-home oral hygiene routine, attend your regular cleanings and checkups, and avoid poor habits, like smoking. Touch-up treatments can help to keep your teeth their beautiful, pearly white shade.
