Professional Teeth Whitening in San Antonio, TX
Is your smile at its full potential? If not, did you know that teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to get your smile back to a perfect 10? We proudly offer two effective teeth whitening solutions to brighten your teeth up to eight or more shades!
KöR® Deep Bleaching
The KöR deep-bleaching whitening system delivers brilliant whitening results on mild to more severe tooth discoloration cases. It utilizes both in-office sessions and at-home nighttime whitening treatments to give you a stunning smile. Depending on your unique whitening needs and level of discoloration, you may need more than one in-office whitening treatment. In between office treatments at our office and once they’re complete, you’ll use your take-home trays and KöR extra-strength gel for at-home maintenance to keep your smile white for an extended period of time.
Custom Take-Home Whitening Kits
If you want to achieve a whiter smile but have time and budgetary constraints, we offer take-home whitening kits. With these kits, we’ll take impressions to create custom-fitted top and bottom whitening trays that will give you evenly distributed whitening results with increased comfort. The kits come with your trays, professional-grade whitening gel, and a set of detailed instructions to help you get the most out of your treatments. Instead of reaching for a store-bought whitening product, reach out to our office to book your whitening consultation. Enjoy the benefits of a professionally whitened smile in the comfort and convenience of your own home!

Does teeth whitening cause sensitivity?
KöR whitening is known for its ability to offer patients beautiful white teeth while causing very little to no tooth sensitivity in the process. This is because their treatments are kept cold, which means they contain no chemical stabilizers, which are what usually cause tooth sensitivity. However, if you know you have sensitive teeth and gums, we recommend that you avoid eating and drinking hot and cold foods for the first few days after your treatments, as they can trigger sensitivity. Any whitening-related tooth sensitivity should dissipate after a few days.
How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?
Professional teeth whitening can give you a whiter, brighter smile for at least six months or up to two years. Drinking things like tea, coffee, and red wine can make the effects of your teeth whitening treatments fade faster because they are known to stain teeth, so you may want to drink these drinks through a straw so they do not come in contact with your teeth. Regularly using tobacco products can also cause staining. Once you notice your smile appears less white, you can always use a touch-up treatment to enhance the color of your teeth.
Is professional teeth whitening expensive?
Professional teeth whitening tends to cost more than over-the-counter products, but they also tend to work better and help patients quickly achieve the results that they are looking for. While most dental insurance doesn’t cover teeth whitening, our office does accept CareCredit®, which can split up the cost of professional teeth whitening into manageable monthly payments. If you are interested in whitening your teeth using our professional services, we would love to work with you to find a way to fit our treatments into your budget!
