We have a number of different types of whitening processes one is where you can apply it yourself over a period of time at home, the other one is you do it here in the office and then the third one which we just recently received a Trademark Patent award for, is called permanent teeth whitening. The dental office can make you a little slip that goes over the teeth that you put the gel into that where you can put the chemistry or this this whitening gel directly on your tooth so you're going to get a faster more obvious result in less time. The other where you come into the office is the same chemistry again but it's stronger and some processes use a light activation system, that's the one we use, so we have that available for the person that's not really going to wear this thing you take home. And if you wear the thing you take home you can get as white as that, it just takes longer and you got to be disciplined. Now this third one that I mentioned the permanent teeth whitening is a new process that we develop again off of the idea of the prep less veneer. We use a porcelain in a ceramic that is so thin and so light its pure white and translucent at the same time so that when you put this on the tooth it actually lets your tooth color come through it so it still looks like your tooth with your same color but now it's been white and and when you put that on there it's completely safe on the tooth, you can take them back off, you still got your same teeth that you had before but, if, I've never had anyone asked take those off, 'cause they look too good but you put those on the teeth and it makes your own teeth look super white and we call it a permanent teeth whitening because this white coating that's on there cannot stain, it will not pick up any coffee stain, no red wine stain, you put blueberry juice on that, grape, Welch's grape drink, whatever you what and it's not going to stain these things up. They're going to stay white and if it does get a little stained on, you just wipe it off.
What’s the secret to dramatically whiter teeth? Professional teeth whitening by Cosmetic Dental Associates. One of the most popular cosmetic solutions for both men and women, teeth whitening is sometimes referred to as teeth bleaching, and we have solutions for your specific budget, goals, and expectations.
There are many, many teeth whitening options available in San Antonio, but less than a quarter of the population is willing to actually experience this treatment. Why? We think it’s because of all the incorrect information floating around.
You can trust Dr. Moore to provide you with accurate information to help you make the best decision for your smile. Teeth whitening in our San Antonio dentist office actually works, and we can help you maintain your new smile for the rest of your life! Listen to Dr. Moore explain this in more detail in the videos below, then call us today at 210-951-4444.
Teeth discoloration will happen to everyone over time. Your tooth enamel is made up of crystalline rods that will, over time, develop tiny cracks. It is within these cracks that stains develop and live. The good news is that teeth whitening can remove those stains and allow your teeth to be restored to their natural beauty. In addition to a whiter smile, you’ll experience:
The results you can achieve with teeth whitening will vary. A quick consultation with our San Antonio dentist will help you set expectations for your results. We offer a variety of teeth whitening solutions so that you can select the teeth whitening that will be the most effective for your smile. We will then help you create a plan for your smile so you’ll have a rough idea of how long your teeth whitening process will take.
If you’re ready to get started with this process, give us a call at 210-951-4444. Take a look at some of the beautiful smiles we were able to bring to life in the smile gallery below.
Fast, professional teeth whitening happens in our San Antonio dentist office. A staff member will carefully apply a strong peroxide gel to your teeth. We may remove and reapply that gel several times over the course of an hour. You may be happy with the results after one visit, but sometimes deep stains require a follow-up whitening appointment.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening Kits
Whitening at home may be your best option. The low concentration of peroxide can be applied easily over time. You’ll be able to whiten when it’s convenient for you, and over time, you will be able to achieve the same (or better) results than what we can accomplish with in-office whitening. You will receive a custom-made whitening tray and can wear your whitening for an hour or more each day!

The ADA advises that dental whitening is completely safe under the guidance of a dental professional. Over-the-counter teeth whitening kits and kiosks in the mall provide unreliable whitening results at best and at worst, could be harmful to the enamel of your teeth or the sensitive tissue of your gums.
Professional-grade teeth whitening kits are able to move beyond the surface of your teeth to lift deep-seated stains and discoloration. Don’t waste your time on treatments that might not work or can cause more harm than good. Choose quality treatment instead – choose Cosmetic Dental Associates.

Teeth become stained in two different ways: extrinsic and intrinsic staining. Extrinsic means that the stain is coming from a source outside your tooth, like beverages, foods, and chemicals. It can build up over time, but we are often able to remove those stains with teeth whitening.
Intrinsic stains occur due to chemical and mineral ingestion during the tooth formation process. They are more difficult to remove, but we believe that an extended period of teeth whitening performed at your home can lift those stains and give you the smile you’ve been dreaming of.
How do teeth get dull in the first place?
Teeth whitening is not without risk. It is common for patients to feel teeth sensitivity in the days and weeks after treatment. Some cases have been known to last for a month. It is more common for sensitivity to occur following an in-office whitening because of the high concentration of whitening solution, and it is more common for patients who have gum recession to experience sensitivity. If you feel pain following a whitening treatment, we recommend a toothpaste with potassium nitrate.
Gum irritation is also possible. This is caused by contact with the peroxide itself or irritation from wearing the whitening trays. Gum irritation will only last a few days. If you feel that this discomfort is excessive, give us a call!
Finally, some restorations are not affected by whitening solutions. Bonding, crowns, and veneers will not change color after bleaching, but your teeth will. This can cause a result that we like to call technicolor teeth. Be sure your San Antonio dentist knows of your restorations before teeth whitening begins.
In order to keep your dream smile, you will likely need follow-up whitening maintenance. This can be applied every quarter, annually, or whenever needed. Immediately following a whitening session, you should avoid stain-causing foods, drinks, and habits (like smoking). Routine maintenance will help protect your teeth from stains as will developing new habits, like drinking out of a straw whenever possible.
Before teeth whitening treatment, there are a few things we like to share with our patients. You’ll find those below:
