As Spring comes to an end, and the season gradually transitions into summer, you may consider the appearance of your teeth. For most, white, bright teeth are a necessity to every day life. The presence of a beautiful smile means a higher likelihood of positive social and professional interactions and a boost to self-confidence. Enhance your teeth and solidify the cornerstone to first impressions with teeth whitening. Dr. Loukas explains the cosmetic dentistry treatment below.
At Home Teeth Whitening
To enjoy the effects of teeth whitening at home, you will need to schedule a visit with our office in Park Ridge, IL. The appointment allows our team to take impressions of your teeth to create the custom-fitted trays for bleach solution administration. Once your trays are created, you will visit our office a second time to try on the trays and ensure their fit. Dr. Loukas will also instruct you on how to use your bleaching solution along with tray wearing duration. In most cases, at home teeth whitening trays are worn each day for an hour for 7 consecutive days to achieve maximum results.
In Office Treatment With Opalescence Boost
In our Park Ridge, IL office, we administer a teeth whitening bleach solution called Opalescence Boost to brighten your teeth in less than an hour. Prior to the treatment, however, our hygienist will clean your teeth to remove any accumulated plaque to maximize the whitening treatment.
Once the teeth have been cleaned, a protective gel will be coated onto the gums to protect them from irritation during the whitening treatment. Several passes are made with the bleaching solution during the one hour process, which provides a smile up to ten shades brighter.
After your smile is whitened, you will experience a multitude of benefits. The following list shows some of the major benefits from whitening your smile, either at-home or in-office:
- Brighter smile
- Create great first impressions
- A boost in self-confidence
- Removal of stains and some discoloration
