What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a popular dental treatment used to transform the color of your smile. Unlike over-the-counter whitening products, which often produce disappointing results, our professional teeth whitening treatments can lighten your tooth enamel by multiple shades in just one visit to our office. We work hard to provide you with excellent teeth whitening in Elk Grove Village, Illinois to ensure you reach all of your smile goals.
To professionally whiten your smile, we typically recommend one of a few options.
Professional Teeth Whitening in Elk Grove Village
To professionally whiten your teeth in-office, a dentist will first apply a special whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. This gel typically takes between 15 to 30 minutes to absorb into the enamel of your teeth. Once absorbed, the gel gently bleaches away any deep-rooted stains and discoloration.
This option works the fastest, however, it is the most sensitive and can wear off the fastest. For those looking to get a bright smile quickly before an event or a business meeting, this is a great option.
Custom Take-Home Whitening Trays
Custom take-home whitening trays are a great option for many patients because they can be customized to fit your individual needs. If you choose, you can wear these trays overnight with certain whitening products, requiring minimal alteration from your typical routines. Finally, these take-home trays typically have the least sensitivity and can also be used at a later date for easy touch-up bleaching.
