<!–If you want to have brighter, more beautiful smile, please call and schedule an appointment. We offer many options that can whiten your teeth, and when you schedule a visit with our dentist, you can learn all about the different benefits of at-home and in-office professional whitening.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
When you visit Oak Dental Associates for teeth whitening, we offer a professional in-office procedure that is the most effective at brightening your smile. Our dentist will apply a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth, and after 60 minutes, you will see the gorgeous whitening results.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
There are several options for teeth whitening which you can perform in the comfort of your own home. Some of these options include:
- Tray Whitening: Our dentist provides custom-made dental trays and a whitening gel which you can bring home to whiten your teeth. One of the primary ingredients in the gel, peroxide, breaks down the hydroxyl radicals on stained teeth. This whitening treatment takes 10-14 days, but you may see results before then.
- Paint-On Whiteners: This is an inexpensive, over-the-counter whitening product consisting of a whitening gel and a small brush. After painting the gel onto your teeth, it will harden before dissolving in your mouth. Please consult our dentist first if you are considering using paint-on whiteners.
- Teeth-Whitening Strips: These thin, flexible, polyethylene strips have a peroxide whitening agent on one side. There are strips available for both your upper and lower teeth. You will place the strip over the surface of your teeth and wear it for about 30 minutes twice a day.
- Whitening Toothpaste and Mouthwash: These are the least expensive whitening options and they clean away surface stains with mild abrasives. Though they can make your smile appear brighter by removing these stains, they cannot actually lighten tooth color.
KöR Whitening System
Our office proudly provides patients the option to use the KöR Whitening system. KöR works differently than other whitening systems. By renewing the ability of your teeth to absorb oxygen, KöR helps whitening gel absorb deeply into your teeth to dissolve and remove stain molecules. If you’d like to brighten your teeth with KöR in Oak Lawn, Illinois, call our office now to schedule a teeth whitening consultation.
