If your teeth aren’t the sparkling white they were when you were younger, don’t feel bad! It’s totally normal for our enamel to become discolored over time, no matter how well we take care of our oral health.
A lot of what we eat and drink, and other habits like tobacco, cause stains to accumulate and discolor our teeth. But if yours is to the point where you’re hiding your smile, whitening treatments could help.
At Dyme Dental in Glenview, we offer safe, effective, professional-grade whitening treatments to give you a dazzling smile.
Our professional teeth whitening treatments at Dyme Dental can get you a whiter smile in as little as one treatment. Depending on the reason behind your stains and how stubborn they are, our powerful bleaching gel knocks out those discolored teeth and pulls out your bright enamel.
A common question asked is, “What’s the difference between over-the-counter whitening kits and dental whitening?” The answer is that professional whitening treatments are much safer and more effective than an OTC kit.
Our in-office whitening treatments are designed to remove those accumulated stains in a way that causes the least stress to your teeth and gums. OTC kits can harm both of these areas, causing temporary or long-term sensitivity.
The professional whitening treatments work faster and more efficiently because of the strength of the gel we are able to use. This gel, in combination with a special absorption light that lets the bleaching agent work faster, is the reason for the impressive and fast results!
Of course, some stains are more stubborn than others. If your discoloration is caused by advanced decay, over-exposed fluoride damage, or medications like tetracycline, even a professional treatment may not be able to help. Talk to Dr. Dyme to see what your options are before you assume nothing can help.
There are no medical precautions or concerns that have to be dealt with before your in-office whitening treatment. After you’ve had your procedure, you can go about your day as normal. The only precaution is that you should follow the advice you’re given about what to eat and what to avoid for 48 hours to prevent further staining.
Another appointment for a follow-up whitening treatment may be scheduled if you’re still not satisfied with the level of brightness you’re at after the first visit. This procedure can be done multiple times, and each visit usually takes about one hour.
When you want a whiter smile without the worry of damaging your teeth and gums, professional treatments are the way to go. At Dyme Dental, we walk you through the procedure, letting you know what to expect from start to finish and answering all your questions.
Dr. Dyme and his friendly staff make it easy to handle the before, during, and aftercare of our whitening treatments. If you want to make your smile Insta-ready, contact our office to schedule your appointment today!
