Tooth Whitening Dentistry In San Antonio

On February 10, 2017, in Teeth Whitening, by Stewart Costmetic Dentistry

Tooth Whitening Dentistry In San Antonio One of the easiest ways to brighten your smile is to have your teeth whitened. There are several options when it comes to tooth whitening systems. You can choose from a selection of over-the-counter tooth whitening products at your local San Antonio drug store, or you can rely on your San Antonio dentist.

It is a good idea to consult with your dentist before using OTC tooth whitening products. Your dentist knows your teeth and dental history and can recommend a tooth bleaching product best suited for you.

There are many variables when it comes to tooth whitening. The color of your teeth at the beginning of your treatment will influence the end result. Other factors include existing cosmetic dentistry such as crowns and dental bonding, gum health, and tooth sensitivity. Your San Antonio dentist has experience treating tooth discoloration and understands the benefits and drawbacks of the available methods.

Your San Antonio dentist may offer a tooth whitening solution that you can take home with you. In some cases, your San Antonio dentist may recommend a professional treatment that is done at the dentist’s office. Professional tooth whitening can produce dramatic results in a single treatment, but is often done over a few treatments.

Tooth whitening in the San Antonio area is less expensive than it was in the earlier days of tooth whitening technology. Today, tooth whitening treatments are very affordable.

If you are interested in tooth whitening and live in the San Antonio area, please call William J. Stewart Jr. DDS to make an appointment for a tooth whitening consultation.

How Bright Can You Shine, San Antonio?

On March 18, 2016, in Teeth Whitening, by Stewart Costmetic Dentistry

Bright Smiles In Leon Springs

Hello San Antonio! Do you want brighter, whiter teeth? Most Leon Springs residents notice their teeth dulling as the years go by, but some foods, drinks, and even mouthwashes can stain teeth at any age.

OTC tooth whitening products like kits, strips, or toothpastes may slightly lighten stains, but for a truly brilliant smile, see William Stewart!

If you have dental veneers, bonding, or bridges, teeth whitening bleach will not sway the stains and your whitened natural teeth may make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At William J. Stewart Jr. DDS, we can advise you about new dental work, including veneers or bondings, if these have discolored with age.

Remember, anything that can stain a white t-shirt can stain teeth.

Fortunately, brushing after meals can keep stains at bay, however after consuming acidic foods or drinks, just rinse your mouth with water. Brushing right away can erode enamel.

San Antonio in-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS and can produce outstanding results over time.

For more specifics about a younger and brighter smile, contact our patient-centered and detail oriented dental team for a smile brightening consultation today!

We provide the highest quality general and cosmetic dentistry including veneers, crowns, bonding, orthodontia, and teeth whitening. Ask us about financing options.

Which Tooth Whitener Works Best in San Antonio?

On February 22, 2013, in Teeth Whitening, by Stewart Costmetic Dentistry

Teeth Whitening For San Antonio Patients What is the best professional tooth whitening system to use in San Antonio?

There are two types of dentist-supervised tooth whitening systems available in San Antonio. In order to determine the best choice for your teeth, schedule, and budget, you need to understand the differences in the systems.

Both systems use a bleaching agent containing peroxide. San Antonio dentists who offer professional in-office tooth bleaching use a whitening gel with a high concentration of peroxide. Some in-office tooth whitening systems use a light that causes the tooth bleaching agent to work faster. There are different types of lights including halogen, plasma arc, metal halide and laser; but they all work the same way. When the light is shined at teeth on which the whitening gel is applied, it causes the peroxide to break down into free radicals, which are active oxygen molecules. This process naturally occurs without the light, but the light makes it happen faster. That is why you can get whiter teeth in just one hour.

Most San Antonio cosmetic dentists also offer take home tooth whitening systems. Although these procedures take a bit longer to work, they achieve the same dramatic results. For many general dentistry clients, this is the most affordable teeth whitening system.

At William J. Stewart Jr. DDS, we offer safe and effective teeth bleaching. Our San Antonio cosmetic dentistry patients can’t believe how great their teeth look when they remove the stains and restore the brightness. If you would like to learn why our system is superior, schedule a consultation by calling our office at 210-493-3040.

Tooth-Colored Fillings in San Antonio

On November 23, 2012, in General Dentistry, Teeth Whitening, by Stewart Costmetic Dentistry

General Dentistry San Antonio Hello! Welcome to the William J. Stewart Jr. DDS blog. If this your first visit, we hope you find useful information about our San Antonio cosmetic dentistry practice. If you have read some of our previous articles, we are glad you checked back with us. We post new articles regularly.

My name is Dr. William Stewart. I have been practicing cosmetic and general dentistry in San Antonio since 1981. William J. Stewart Jr. DDS is a full-service dental office located at 13220 Huebner Rd in San Antonio. In addition to providing comprehensive examinations and deep cleanings for clients in the San Antonio area, we perform all types of tooth restorations.

When a tooth has decay or has been damaged, a dental restoration is needed to ‘restore’ the tooth to its previous intact condition. A dental filling is one of the most common and well-known types of restorations. A dental filling is used to repair decayed or damaged tooth surfaces. Most people have a few fillings in their mouth.

If you have old silver amalgam fillings, we can replace them with nearly-invisible fillings tooth colored. These fillings are made out of a strong composite resin. Many of our San Antonio cosmetic dentistry patients have replaced their old silver fillings with fillings matched to their teeth. You can improve your smile instantly and relatively inexpensively by getting rid of the ‘metal’.

Another reason some San Antonio clients have had their old fillings replaced is because they are concerned about the possible heavy metal toxicity of the mercury in the silver.

If you would like to try teeth whitening by replacing your amalgam fillings, call us at 210-493-3040 to schedule a consultation. We are currently accepting new patients and would be happy to show you around our San Antonio cosmetic dental office and introduce you to our friendly team.

Smile – it increases your face value!

Is a Perfect Smile Possible In San Antonio?

On October 5, 2012, in Porcelain Veneers, Teeth Whitening, by Stewart Costmetic Dentistry

Porcelain Veneers San Antonio Are you considering a smile makeover in the San Antonio area? Are you skeptical of promises of a ‘perfect smile’ a ‘celebrity smile’ or ‘a dazzling, youthful smile’? Let’s talk about the most popular San Antonio cosmetic dental procedures and the results that can be expected.

Dental Veneers
The application of porcelain veneers at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS can remedy a multitude of aesthetic dental problems and is often a better cosmetic dental solution for candidates in the San Antonio area than dental bonding. Veneers can correct tooth chips, tooth cracks, minor tooth misalignment, tooth discoloration, unattractive tooth shape, and disproportionate tooth size. Can a porcelain veneer create a perfect tooth? While a veneer cannot fix a decayed tooth, it can turn an unsightly tooth into an aesthetically perfect tooth.

Tooth Bleaching
San Antonio tooth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that dramatically improves a smile. However, some tooth whitening dentists will guarantee fantastic results for any patient that desires a whiter smile. At William J. Stewart Jr. DDS in San Antonio we only recommend tooth bleaching for clients that are good candidates for the process. If you have all-natural teeth that are dull or stained, tooth whitening will brighten your smile. If you have several crowns in the front of your mouth, or gums that have receded, conventional tooth-whitening may not improve your smile.

Call 210-493-3040 to schedule a tooth-whitening consultation.

Tooth-Colored Fillings
If you have a mouth full of metal fillings, you may be interested in tooth-colored fillings. To get an idea of how the inside of your mouth would look without metal, have someone without any fillings open their mouth. Do you remember when your mouth looked like that? Would you like to bring your smile back to its pre-filling appearance? It is possible with tooth-colored fillings at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS.

These are just a few of the cosmetic dental solutions that create perfect smiles for our San Antonio clients. You can see a complete list of our services at https://www.stewartcosmeticdentistry.com/.

All Tooth Stains Are Not Created Equal

On August 31, 2012, in Cosmetic Dentistry, Teeth Whitening, by Stewart Costmetic Dentistry

Teeth Whitening San Antonio Will any of our locally advertised San Antonio teeth whitening options remove the stains from your teeth?

The effectiveness of teeth bleaching in San Antonio depends partly on the types of stains.

Extrinsic tooth stains are the easiest to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and beverages like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. And nicotine is no better for your smile than it is for your lungs.

Unfortunately, even if you avoid these common teeth stainers, your teeth will become discolored over time. Like gray hair, wrinkles, and memory lapses, a dull smile is an inevitable part of aging for San Antonio retirees.

Intrinsic tooth stains develop from the inside out. Tooth injury and tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are more difficult to remove completely, but it is possible to lighten them with professional tooth whitening available at your San Antonio area cosmetic dental office.

If your teeth are stained, whether from coffee, tetracycline, or excessive fluoride, call William J. Stewart Jr. DDS at 210-493-3040. We have treated many clients with extreme tooth discoloration.

It is never too late or too early to brighten your smile.

San Antonio seniors can take years off their appearance by restoring the youthful white smile they once enjoyed. San Antonio teens and young adults with surface stains can prevent them from becoming intrinsic stains with San Antonio tooth bleaching.

Speaking of the younger set, did you know that people who drink energy drinks are at risk for many dental problems?

William J. Stewart Jr. DDS is the general dentistry and cosmetic dental specialist in San Antonio. Discover why hundreds of families trust us with their smiles.
