Is Teeth Whitening Right For You?

Teeth whitening could be the solution if your smile has seen better days. If you have your natural teeth, but are not happy with the color that they have become over the years, a simple teeth whitening procedure may be all that you need.

A Brighter Smile in a Single Visit

With chairside whitening in Chicago your smile can be up to 10 shades brighter in just one dental visit. When you schedule a teeth whitening appointment with Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi you can be assured that the best professional teeth whitening procedure will be chosen to give you the best results possible.

At Home Professional Whitening

Dr. Ivan may recommend custom made take home whitening trays that will be used with a prescription whitening gel. Depending on your instructions, you may wear overnight or for a few hours during the day.

Over the Counter Teeth Whitening Products

Not all tooth whitening products are the same. Those pastes and gels that are so popular from your local pharmacy do not contain the same percentage of whitening agents. Hydrogen peroxide is the active ingredient in professional tooth whitening products and is more effective at removing stains caused by tobacco, red wine, coffee, tea.

Of course, if you have interior staining from too much fluoride use when you were young, or from medication use, such as tetracycline, Dr. Ivan may recommend a more permanent cosmetic dental solution such as porcelain veneers as teeth whitening will not work on teeth with intrinsic staining or previously restored teeth.

If you follow Dr. Ivan Smile’s blog, you will know that porcelain veneers are the permanent solution to your less than perfect grin. With perfectly shaped thin sheets of porcelain, the fronts of your teeth can be transformed into the smile that you have always dreamed of having, and best of all, your new smile will match the rest of your face and your personality.

Teeth whitening may or may not be the solution for your dingy smile, but only Dr. Ivan can say for sure. Why not find out for yourself how cosmetic dentistry can change your smile and your life.
