Park Ridge Cosmetic Dentist

Teeth Whitening

Dentist in Park Ridge

We provide teeth whitening solutions for patients to brighten their smiles. Teeth whitening may be a great option if you who have stained, dull or discolored teeth. The main causes of stained teeth are genetics, antibiotics, tobacco and certain foods. As we age, our teeth darken as well.

We will evaluate your smile and ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening.

Zoom! ® Whitening

A concentrated bleaching gel is applied to your teeth and then heated with the ZOOM light. The process takes about 1½ to 2 hours. It is a good option for those who are looking for a quick response and either don’t have the time or want to take the time to whiten at home and are willing to pay more.

Our in-office whitening solution is Zoom! Although it costs more than at-home whitening options, ZOOM! will give you the quickest result with minimal participation and time required. Patients who Zoom! can maintain their results with take-home trays if they choose.

About the Process:

  1. To prepare for Zoom! Whitening, we will examine your teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.
  2. Your lips and gums will be covered with an isolation material to protect them during the treatment.
  3. Then, we apply the Zoom! Whitening gel, which is activated by the Zoom! light source. The gel and light work together to gently break up the stains on your teeth.
  4. After three to four 15-minute applications, you rinse and the treatment is complete — leaving you with a brighter, whiter smile.

We can also offer a home whitening option with a custom made tray with whitening get that best fits your needs.

We also offer Sheer White whitening films that are more effective the over the counter white strips you see at the store.

Our dental team is devoted to helping you achieve and maintain a beautiful and healthy smile. If you are considering teeth whitening, contact our Park Ridge dentist for a consultation. We will recommend a method that is best based on your individual needs.
