Do you suffer from stained, old, or dirty looking teeth and wonder how you could ever feel confident in your smile again? Thanks to the power of modern teeth whitening, teamed up with the capable hands at San Antonio Cosmetic Dentistry clinic Southtown Dental Group, it is possible to whiten your teeth quickly, safely, and affordably.
San Antonio cosmetic dentist Dr. Gary Guillory and his experienced dental hygienists can give your smile new life with advanced tooth whitening methods and dedicated dental care. With over twenty years of hands-on experience in the dental field, you can trust “Your Neighborhood Dentist” Dr. Guillory to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Our office currently provides two fantastic teeth whitening options for your smile, based on your individual wants and needs. If you want to have your teeth whitened professionally by one of our Southtown Dental Group dental hygienists, and experience deeper, more controlled results, our in-office whitening option is a great choice. If you are looking for quicker, and more convenient whitening option without the fuss of traveling to our office, our take-home whitening trays may be a more suitable choice.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening in general is various ways to whiten your teeth and leave a memorable smile, without completely replacing the tooth surface with restorative dentistry such as dental veneers.
Each cosmetic dentistry option consists of the same chemical solution, called carbamide peroxide, but at different concentrations in order to make the process manageable, safe, and effective. This solution is not bleach, and as such, teeth whitening is not teeth bleaching.
How do you whiten teeth at a San Antonio cosmetic dentistry office?
If you are looking to have the greatest color shade change in your teeth in the shortest amount of time, in-office whitening is your best solution. This in-office cosmetic dentistry option uses a higher dose of the carbamide peroxide gel than our take-home kit, because the process can be monitored by our friendly dental hygienists and Dr. Guillory.
The in-office cosmetic dentistry process requires the application of the peroxide gel onto the patient’s teeth for 15 to 20 minute intervals over a period of about an hour. Depending on the shade change requested by the patient, the total amount of sessions necessary to provide optimum results may vary. If you are interested in receiving an estimate, please feel free to contact us online or via phone at: 210-227-0101.
How does your take-home kit whiten teeth?
Many patients choose the take-home kit option because they are looking for the quickest, most convenient way to brighten their smile, without having to travel to our San Antonio dental office.
Similar to our in-office cosmetic dentistry treatment, the take-home kit changes the shade and color of your teeth through the application of peroxide gel directly to the teeth. Our kit is easy-to-use and very safe, and our trays can be custom-fitted to fit the shape of your mouth comfortably. The total tooth whitening process time may vary, based on how white you want your smile to get.
