As you age, your teeth are exposed to foods and drinks that stain them. Though your teeth may be perfectly healthy, they can appear damaged and make you look older. Fortunately, if you have deep stains or want to achieve a brighter smile quickly, Berchelmann Family Dental in San Antonio, Texas, provides teeth-whitening options that can help you acquire a beautiful, youthful-looking, bright smile. Please call us today at (210) 468-1440 or fill out our online appointment request form to schedule an appointment! Types of Tooth Stains Tooth stains fall into two categories: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains are the yellow and brown stains that occur on the surface of your teeth. Intrinsic stains occur inside your teeth, making them appear gray or blue. Some surface stains can be removed with whitening toothpastes and over-the-counter teeth-whitening kits. However, these approaches are limited and can be painful or can cause tooth and gum sensitivities. Professional-grade products are needed to remove deeper extrinsic and intrinsic stains and to treat individuals with sensitive teeth and gums. Professional Teeth-Whitening Options There are multiply approaches to teeth bleaching that San Antonio dentist Dr. John Berchelmann can use to help you whiten your smile by eight to 14 shades in a short amount of time. In-office teeth bleaching: During your office visit, Dr. Berchelmann will apply to your teeth the teeth-bleaching agent, typically in the form of a gel, then will use a whitening lamp to accelerate the bleaching process. Standard visits last 90 minutes. At-home teeth bleaching: Dr. John Berchelmann will provide you with a teeth-bleaching gel and a mouthguard to put it in that has been customized to your bite. He will then assign a teeth-bleaching regimen for you to follow. Results typically take a little longer than the in-office option; however, the process takes place within the comfort and convenience of your own home. It typically takes 10 to 14 days to achieve the desired results with this method.
