Tooth Whitening and Veneers

Your smile is the first thing people notice about you. Stained, yellowed teeth can be a turn off during social, business, and romantic encounters. For this reason, procedures to whiten teeth have topped the cosmetic dental market in recent years. There are several options available to make your teeth their whitest and most brilliant.

Tooth Whitening

Many options exist to help whiten teeth. Over the counter tooth whitening kits are the most readily available, but they are also the least effective and can cause the most tooth sensitivity. Professional alternatives to store bought kits include:

  • Professional at-home whitening kits - These contain a higher concentration of whitening gel along with a personally molded mouthguard to ensure quick, even results.
  • In-office whitening - This takes place over a single office visit. Whitening gel is applied and a special light is used to increase its whitening power while decreasing the amount of time necessary to see results. This helps eliminate time, effort, and discomfort associated with do it yourself methods.
  • Dental bonding - This can be used to fill in cracks, chips, and pits where discoloration can hide. In some cases, these areas cannot be whitened with a gel due to their inaccessibility.
  • Porcelain veneers - These are a quick, painless, noninvasive way to correct problems ranging from cracked and chipped teeth, to teeth that are discolored by stains and environmental factors.

If you live in or around Chicago, Illinois, and are looking for an ideal solution to whiten your teeth, please contact us for a consultation. The dentists at Colonial Dental Group will work closely with you to find a solution that best meets your needs and desires.
