Do you desire a whiter, brighter smile?
You may want to consider teeth whitening at our Skokie, IL dentist office. Professional teeth whitening is an effective and safe way to brighten stained or discolored teeth. At The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry, we offer in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments. Patients can achieve effective results with both solutions. However, the whitening procedure you choose will depend on your budget and cosmetic dentistry goals.
How Can Teeth Whitening Benefit Me?
Patients who choose teeth whitening can look forward to these top benefits:
- Results are noticeable immediately after your treatment
- With take-home teeth whitening you can achieve noticeable results on your own time
- In-office teeth whitening can brighten your smile up to eight shades in one hour
- We can customize whitening treatment to meet your cosmetic goals
Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening
When compared to over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments, professional teeth whitening offers more effective results. Additionally, it lessens the risk of damage to the gums and enamel. Over-the-counter-whitening can often take longer than the desired time period to produce results; even then, the results may be hardly noticeable or inconsistent throughout the enamel.
Our team applies professional-grade bleaching agents to your enamel; which penetrate the top layer of the enamel to remove tough stains. In many cases, patients waste time and money with over-the-counter teeth whitening. If you are searching for a solution to whiten your smile, visit The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry. Our dentists will help you determine if professional teeth whitening is right for you.
Teeth Whitening Options at our Dentist Office
Visit The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry for a cosmetic consultation. Dr. Stein or Dr. Weiss can assess your smile and discuss your cosmetic goals to determine which teeth whitening procedures are right for you. For extrinsic stains, teeth whitening can help brighten the enamel.
However, for intrinsic stains, porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be a more suitable cosmetic dentistry treatment. In most cases, patients should have generally healthy teeth and gums before receiving any cosmetic treatment, including professional teeth whitening.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
With take-home teeth whitening, patients can brighten their smile in the comfort of their own home. This will require at least two visits to our Skokie dentist office. During your first visit, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and take impressions of your smile. We will use the impressions to create your custom whitening trays. At your next appointment, we will supply you with your whitening trays and teeth whitening solutions. Our team will also discuss the specifics of your treatment plan.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening is the preferred method for many patients. The results are noticeable immediately after treatment, and only requires one visit to our dental practice. We use medical-grade bleaching agents and advanced dental technology to safely and effectively brighten your tooth enamel. No whitening strips or hassle! Your treatment plan is completely customizable to meet your cosmetic goals.
