Teeth Whitening

Today, we can choose from many cosmetic options to improve the appearance of your smile. Professional teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments we offer because it’s a fast, easy, cost-effective way to brighten and refresh your smile.

A common complaint among our patients is that their teeth have taken on a dull, drab appearance. This can happen to anyone, especially as we get older. Our teeth withstand a lot of wear and tear. Even if you take proper care of your oral health, age and lifestyle habits will cause your formerly bright smile to gradually fade.

Professional Whitening vs. Store-Bought Products

If you’ve tried store-bought teeth whitening products, you probably found that they didn’t produce noticeable results or they took forever to work. The reason you don’t see significant whitening is simple. Over-the-counter products don’t contain the same concentration of whitening agent that can be used safely by a trained dental professional.

Professional teeth whitening treatments at our Plainfield dental office are completely customized for you. We will evaluate your specific needs and adjust the level of whitening agent used to reduce any chance of any sensitivity.

Whitening Options That Fit Your Life

For your convenience, we offer our patients Pola whitening for both in-office whitening and take-home treatment. The type we'll recommend depends on your personal needs and preferences.

In-Office Teeth Whitening: If you’re looking for fast results, an in-office teeth whitening treatment may be the best choice for you. The whole procedure can be completed in about thirty minutes, and within a day or so, you will see the remarkable results.

Professional Take-Home Kits:  We’re all busy, and you may not have the time to come to our Plainfield dental office for treatment. If this is the case, we also offer convenient take-home whitening kits.

Aside from the strength of the whitening gel used, a major difference between professional and store-bought take-home kits is the whitening tray. As part of your kit, you will receive a customized tray that has been created specifically for you using impressions of your teeth.

Our take-home kits are also easy to use – simply apply the gel to the inside of the whitening tray and wear every day for about two weeks. Everyone has different needs, but we usually recommend you wear the trays for about twenty to thirty minutes at a time. After two weeks, you will be amazed at the dramatic results!

You Deserve a Stunning Smile

Everyone wants to enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile. Professional teeth whitening at our Plainfield dental office makes it easy to achieve a great smile that really helps you feel good about the way you look.
