Professional Teeth Whitening in Peoria, IL

One of the simplest and most economical ways to enhance your smile is through professional teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening can be accomplished at home in just a couple of weeks with flexible custom made trays and a concentrated teeth whitening gel worn while you sleep. Another option is to have this process done in a dentist office with an even more concentrated solution. If you have an event to attend and don’t have much time, you can attain a brighter smile almost instantly in only a few hours.

As we age, unfortunately so do our teeth. They become darker and yellowed, even with proper dental care. The results of both at home and in office teeth whitening help to make your smile look cleaner, healthier, and more youthful.

Reasons to Consider Professional Teeth Whitening:

  • Overcome fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
  • Correct wear of the outermost tooth layer.
  • Whiten stained teeth

What does the teeth whitening process involve?

Professional teeth whitening typically requires two visits our office. At the primary visit, impressions are made of the teeth in order to create custom trays.

During the second appointment, the trays are tried on and tested for proper fit. These trays are worn along with an advanced teeth whitening solution. They are worn either twice per day for up to 30 minutes or they can be worn overnight for a couple of weeks. During the process of having the trays on, it may be common to feel sensitivity of the teeth. This will eventually subside soon after the whitening process is complete.
