Dental Whitening In San Antonio TX
If you want to turn discolored teeth into a dazzling, white smile, try teeth whitening. Over time, your teeth can turn yellow or brown from aging, tobacco use, coffee, red wine, and soda. The good news is that cosmetic dentistry in the form of teeth whitening performed at Shebah Dental can make your teeth several shades lighter and help restore your beautiful smile.
Our hygienist starts by cleaning your teeth to clear away plaque and other debris. Next, a whitening solution is applied to provide faster and more efficient results. After this solution is applied, the dentist may use laser light to help speed up the whitening process by activating the main ingredient in the bleaching agent. This entire in-office process usually takes between 30 minutes and an hour.
After the procedure, the dentist may provide you with an at-home mouthpiece and gel with a lower concentration of the active ingredient. You will be instructed on how long and often you should wear the mouthpiece to achieve the best whitening results. Following treatment, you may experience some sensitivity, but this will diminish over time.
Almost any patient with natural teeth can improve their smile with teeth whitening. It does not work on crowns or veneers. To find out if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening, contact Shebah Dental by calling our office at (210) 448-1000 or request an appointment online.
