Returning yellowish or grayish teeth to a shining, glistening white is a frequent goal of people seeking cosmetic dentistry. Teeth whitening has been performed for decades, but as with all other things, science has continued to advance, and today’s procedures are safer and more effective than ever before. If you are considering teeth whitening, several choices are open to you, including home treatments, over-the-counter whitening kits, and in-office whitening. Of the three, in-office techniques are the safest and most likely to succeed, since they are carried out in a controlled environment by our trained, skilled, and knowledgeable team. Drs. Thomas and Jessica Gibbs can whiten your teeth at our Glen Ellyn, IL office or you can whiten them safely at home. These professional teeth whitening methods begin with a health evaluation of your mouth and produce excellent whitening, safe results, and high patient satisfaction.
We conveniently offer both in-office and take-home ZOOM! whitening solutions for our patients. In-office teeth whitening involves the application of highly concentrated peroxide to healthy teeth. The procedure is safe (Dr. Gibbs supervises the procedure from beginning to end), effective, and the results are guaranteed. Most people notice a difference in the color of their teeth after only one visit! During the three 15-minute sessions, your teeth are then exposed to laser or a special lamp to boost the whitening process. The bleach is rinsed off and treatment is repeated two more times. At-home touch-up kits are available to maintain your smile. At-home teeth whitening is an ideal option if your teeth are sensitive to light-activated bleaching solution or you simply want the convenience of whitening your teeth at home. We will design a custom tray that comfortably fits your teeth. This tray is filled with bleaching gel that comes in different concentrations. You will wear the tray for about 1-5 hours every day for two weeks, or as instructed by our dentists.
We are dedicated to bringing high-quality, professional teeth whitening methods to you at an extremely affordable price. Making a dazzling smile available to everyone who wants one is our overall goal. For this reason, we offer the special White Smiles for Life program if you maintain your routine 6-month appointments with us.
