Safe, Effective Teeth Whitening for a Brighter Smile
For most patients, it is impossible to avoid stained and discolored teeth. Our smile naturally loses its brightness from daily wear, age, and even what we eat and drink. To help you achieve the whiter smile you want, Drs. Art Carpenter and Sejal Jobalia offer advanced teeth whitening treatments at their Kenilworth, IL, practice. With professional teeth whitening, you can achieve better results than with over-the-counter treatments. You can also choose between in-office and take-home treatments to conveniently achieve your optimal shade at your own pace.
The Truth about Discoloration
Most tooth stains are located on the surface of the enamel. These stains are often caused by what we eat and drink, including substances such as coffee, tea, red wine, berries, and tobacco. Surface stains are often very easily treated with whitening, responding well to the bleaching agents used.
However, teeth can also suffer from internal staining. These discolorations can result from certain medications, trauma to the tooth, and metal fillings that show through enamel. In addition, as teeth wear, enamel becomes thin and begins to show the natural yellow color of the interior dentin. Teeth whitening is not able to address internal stains or lighten the color of dentin. If you are concerned about internal staining, you may benefit from another cosmetic procedure, such as porcelain veneers, crowns, or dental bonding.
In just one appointment you can achieve dramatic results. If you have an upcoming social event or simply want the satisfaction of instant results, in-office treatments may be the option for you.
Convenient, Effective Options
Dr. Carpenter and Dr. Jobalia use Opalescence® products for excellent results. Opalescence® Boost is our in-office system that yields amazing results in about one hour. We will carefully apply the chemical solution to your teeth, ensuring that your gums and other soft tissues are protected and will not become irritated. In just one appointment you can achieve dramatic results. If you have an upcoming social event or simply want the satisfaction of instant results, in-office treatments may be the option for you.
We also provide customized take-home whitening kits. Our office will give you specialized trays that are created from impressions of your teeth. The custom-made mouth trays hold a safe, patented bleaching gel against teeth, while keeping saliva from diluting the active ingredients. We can work with you to determine the correct strength of bleaching gel in order to ensure your comfort during treatment. In about two weeks, you can achieve similar, significant results to in-office treatments, all from the convenience of your own home. Take-home whitening kits can also be used to maintain your in-office results, ensuring your brighter, whiter smile lasts.
