Teeth Whitening in Peoria, IL

Over time, your teeth accumulate stains from the foods and beverages you love. Fortunately, you can restore your smile with a little help from a teeth bleaching dentist. Professional dental whitening is popular for many good reasons; it’s easy and affordable, and it can transform your appearance almost instantly.

Chairside Professional Teeth Whitening

Also called power bleaching or chairside whitening, teeth whitening is administered by your dentist in a controlled environment that ensures safety, comfort and consistent results. Professional-grade bleaching gel is highly concentrated, so it provides dramatic whitening power and works almost instantly. Teeth whitening is most effective if your discoloration is caused by external enamel stains. Discoloration caused by tetracycline use, tooth decay, defective fillings or injuries doesn’t respond to bleaching techniques. Fillings, crowns and veneers are also unaffected, so it may be necessary to alter restorations to avoid uneven color. Your satisfaction is our most important goal. Our dentists will work with you to determine the best strategy for restoring your bright, healthy smile.

Professional-Quality Teeth Whitening at Home

In addition to traditional in-office whitening, our practice offers convenient at-home teeth whitening options. Your dentist creates a special whitening kit by using impressions of your teeth to make custom teeth whitening trays. You’ll use these at home with the provided bleaching gel to lighten your teeth up to six shades in just two weeks.

How Much Does Teeth Bleaching Cost?

Several factors affect teeth whitening cost including the number of treatments needed and the type of system your dentist uses. Related procedures to correct restoration material color may also increase the overall price. To find out how much your treatments will cost, contact us to schedule a teeth whitening consultation. One of our experienced dentists can evaluate your needs and provide an estimate.

Other Teeth Whitening Products and Remedies

Teeth whitening gels, dental whitening trays, strips and toothpastes are available at your local drug store, but these products don’t produce the dramatic and consistent whitening that you can obtain from in-office teeth whitening. If used incorrectly, they may even cause uneven or unpredictable results. Trusting your dentist with your tooth whitening needs ensures that user error won’t ruin your smile.

An Outline of the Teeth Whitening Procedure

The in-office teeth whitening procedure steps vary by treatment type, but the basic principles are the same. Below is an outline of a typical gel-based, in-office bleaching treatment.

  • Dental examination and professional cleaning
  • Photos taken to monitor color changes
  • Application of liquid gum protectant
  • Application of professional-strength bleaching gel
  • Treatment with bleach-enhancing light
  • Reapplication and rinsing until desired results are achieved
  • Final evaluation and instructions for follow-up or home care

Specific instructions for at-home treatments are provided by your dentist.
