Discolored teeth are not just a cosmetic concern - studies show that people who have confidence in their smile lead generally healthier lives. Whitening removes natural stains and discolorations on teeth for a brighter, healthier smile. There are many different whitening options available including in-office whitening treatments and custom-fitted whitening trays for use at home. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Tan to determine which treatment is right for you.
In-office whitening treatments can dramatically reduce the appearance of stains and discoloration on teeth in just one appointment. The procedure takes about 60 minutes, during which your dentist professional will place a concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel on your teeth while your gums are protected by a special protective barrier to minimize post-whitening discomfort. Typically two or three 10 minute cycles during this appointment are sufficient to address most staining.
In-office whitening treatments are more convenient for busy adults who may not have the time or desire for at-home treatments which may take 30-60 minute daily sessions for 7 days or more. Having the whitening performed by a dental professional also allows you to tailor the whitening to your specific situation (i.e. specific teeth that may be darker, etc). See the difference whitening can make in the the appearance of your teeth and your confident smile! Call Smiles on Cass to schedule your consultation today.
Take-Home Whitening Trays
Another option for teeth whitening is take-home whitening trays. Your dentist in Darien IL will fit you with custom-made whitening trays fit over your teeth. The trays can be filled with a special gel solution to gradually reduce the appearance of stains and discoloration on your teeth. With this at-home kit, you control how often you use the product and how white you want your teeth. You will begin to see results in just 3 days, but can continue to use the trays for future touch-ups and whitening maintenance. Ask your dentist at Smiles on Cass about how you can take home your very own whitening trays!
