If you’re unhappy with the shade of your teeth, you may feel self-conscious about your smile. You may be wondering how you can whiten your teeth effectively.
Fortunately, at Anderson Dental, we offer professional teeth whitening in Champaign, IL.
Our systems are designed to lift yellow or brown tooth stains and help you smile with confidence again.
What is the Process for Professional Teeth Whitening in Champaign, IL?
The process starts when you contact our dental office to schedule an exam for teeth whitening with your Champaign, IL dentist. Your dentist will examine your teeth and gums to make sure whitening is the best option for you. He will consider any restorations or previous dental work and your gum health.
If your dentist determines that teeth whitening in Champaign, IL is a safe option, you and your dentist will decide on the best system to help you achieve optimal results.
We offer both in-office teeth whitening treatments and take-home kits for your convenience.
In-office Teeth Whitening or the Take-Home Kit
Often the decision to whiten your smile in our office or at home depends on your whitening needs, lifestyle, and timeline.
If you have a big social event right around the corner, like a wedding or party, you may consider in-office whitening, which typically provides faster results. Relax with one of our neck pillows, and allow our prescription-strength gel to lift away stains and brighten your smile.
If you are whitening your teeth because you’d simply like a brighter smile, the take-home option may be ideal. This is also a good choice for those with busy lifestyles. The take-home kit relies on a custom mouth tray created after taking an impression of your teeth and prescription-strength whitening gel. You can curl up with a favorite book or whiten your smile without worrying about your schedule or making appointments. A member of our friendly dental team will provide the instructions.
Professional Teeth Whitening is the Safer Option
At Anderson Dental, we recommend staying away from store-bought whitening systems. The whitening solution can be abrasive to your enamel. Also, it is always better to whiten your smile following a dental exam to make sure your teeth and gums are in good shape for bleaching.
Additionally, store-bought products may not provide even whitening and leave your feeling disappointed.
Why Teeth Discolor
Teeth discolor as we age because of lifestyle choices, diet, and even certain medications. Tobacco use, wine, coffee, sauces, and even berries can lead to tooth discoloration.
With lifestyle modifications and a good oral hygiene routine, the result of your professional teeth whitening in Champaign may last for more than a year. Additionally, with your take-home kit, you can touch up your smile periodically.
