Get rid of dental stains with the help of professional in-office whitening.

A yellow, stained smile can really take a toll not just on your appearance but also your self-confidence. If you find yourself hiding your smile or not smiling for photos or around company then our Romeoville, Naperville – Plainfield, and Montgomery-Oswego, IL, dentists have just the thing to turn your smile around. Find out how professional whitening can finally give you the brighter results you want.

What makes professional in-office teeth whitening different?

There are many ways in which to whiten your smile and remove stains; however, the kind that is right for you will really depend on the severity of your stains and the results you are looking to achieve. Of course, if you’ve tried over-the-counter whitening kits and whitening toothpaste and you aren’t getting the results you want then you may want to turn to professional in-office teeth whitening.

In-office teeth whitening offers the strongest and most effective whitening gel you can find. This whitening gel contains a highly concentrated amount of the active ingredient (either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide) to ensure that the gel doesn’t have to remain on teeth that long in order to get the results you want. Plus, in-office teeth whitening is the only way to not just remove surface stains but also to actually whiten and alter the shade of your teeth to get a more radiant smile.

How do in-office teeth whitening treatments work?

Before treatment begins, our dentist will need to clean your teeth to remove any plaque or tartar buildup. Once teeth are cleaned, we will place a dental dam in the mouth. This dam will serve two purposes: to protect gums and soft tissue from the bleaching gel and to reveal the teeth so it’s easier to apply the gel.

Next, we will paint the gel over your teeth and leave it on for about 15 minutes. In some cases, a dental laser may also be directed over the teeth to activate and speed up the whitening process. Once the 15 minutes is up, we will remove the whitening gel from your teeth and then apply a fresh, new layer. One whitening session often consists of 2 or 3 whitening gel applications, and in about one hour you could have a smile that is multiple shades whiter.

After your whitening treatment, keep your smile bright with a convenient ready to go whitening kit as a perfect follow up to in-office whitening. Visit our Offers for seasonal promotions.
