Teeth Whitening in Bloomington, IL

Personal habits and many popular foods and beverages can cause teeth to become yellow or discolored over time. Eventually, your smile may suffer. With professional dental whitening, you have a fast, convenient and affordable way to say goodbye to a dingy smile and hello to the bright, beautiful smile of your dreams.

In-Office Professional Teeth Whitening for Stunning Smiles

Teeth whitening may also be called power bleaching or chair-side whitening. Unlike over-the-counter kits, professional teeth whitening treatments are performed in controlled conditions that ensure maximum efficacy, optimal safety and patient comfort. The highly concentrated bleaching gels work best on extrinsic stains that only penetrate the tooth’s enamel. Intrinsic stains and discoloration caused by prescription drugs, tooth decay or damaged fillings don’t respond to bleaching processes. If you have tooth restorations like crowns, fillings or veneers, these also remain unaffected. Our skilled teeth bleaching dentists carefully evaluate the causes of tooth discoloration to develop a treatment approach that will ensure even color and work for each patient’s unique needs.

Easy, Professional-Quality Teeth Whitening at Home

If home teeth whitening is more appealing than sitting in a dentist’s chair, we also offer take-home whitening kits that include custom teeth whitening trays made from impressions of your teeth and a powerful bleaching gel. By wearing the trays for an hour every day, you may be able to lighten your teeth by up to six shades in about two weeks.

What Is the Cost of Teeth Whitening?

Teeth bleaching cost depends on the type of teeth whitening system used and other factors such as treatment frequency and procedures to match tooth color to existing restoration materials. To find out more about the cost of teeth whitening, call our office for additional information.

Other At-Home Teeth Whitening Products

Several types of over-the-counter teeth whitening systems are available, including teeth whitening gel trays, strips and brush-on whiteners. While these products may lighten teeth slightly, they can’t produce the same dramatic and speedy outcomes as an in-office teeth whitening treatment. If you have your teeth lightened by a dental professional, you also reduce the risk of unexpected results and gum irritation.

What to Expect During Your Teeth Whitening Procedure

When you visit your teeth bleaching dentist for a professional whitening treatment, he or she will perform a thorough exam and clean your teeth to remove debris and plaque. Your dentist may take photos to gauge your teeth whitening progress. The following steps outline a general gel-based whitening process. You can obtain more specific details about your treatment from your dentist.

  • First, your dentist will use a retractor to expose the teeth to be treated.
  • A protective agent will be applied to your gums to prevent irritation.
  • The bleaching gel is applied directly to teeth. Several applications may be needed to achieve optimal results.
  • Some whitening systems use an intense light to improve results. If this applies to your treatment, the light will be administered while the gel is on your teeth.
  • After the final gel treatment is rinsed away, your dentist will reassess the color of your teeth and determine if any follow-up treatments or at-home maintenance products are required.

Few things can improve your confidence more than a bright, gleaming smile. Contact our office today to explore your great options for teeth whitening in Bloomington.
