Teeth Whitening Treatments

Teeth whitening treatments have become increasingly popular during the last few years. There are several reasons why many are choosing to whiten their teeth. Some of the reasons are because of an upcoming event, a job interview, aging, to boost self-confidence or tooth discoloration. Whatever your reason may be, our dentists will provide you with several treatment options. Visit us to determine which one would be great for you.

Opalescence Boost

Opalescence Boost is a chemically activated power whitening gel that provides brighter, whiter teeth after just 40 minutes in the dental chair. The powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide gel is chemically activated, so it doesn’t require a hot, uncomfortable light to work. 

Opalescence Boost consists of two syringes: The first contains 38 percent hydrogen peroxide, the active tooth whitening ingredient. The second syringe contains fluoride and potassium nitrate (PF), which helps strengthen tooth enamel, reduce sensitivity and protect against cavities. When mixed, the gel produces a distinct red color to help ensure correct placement and full removal of the product. 

Safe and effective, Opalescence Boost usually takes only one dental visit to complete. While one visit is all you need to achieve a brighter smile, difficult stains or extreme discoloration may require additional treatments.

At Dental Care of South Elgin, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 630-883-8146 to schedule a consultation.

Take-Home Whitening Trays

Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform at the comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth, and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.

These trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time period that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.

Zoom Teeth Whitening

Over the years, we have seen many teeth whitening options come forward. Some of them have used a multi-stimulus approach to teeth whitening and are generally considered more drastic than the whitening trays. Although more drastic, they are still harmless and provide excellent results. However, they must be performed at our dental office.

Zoom! is one of the whitening methods that have proven to be successful. The results can be seen in as little as one session. The process consists of applying a hydrogen peroxide gel to the teeth, followed by an ultraviolet light.

With Dental Care of South Elgin, you can make sure that the teeth whitening procedure you are looking for is done with the care you deserve. We are located at 342 Randall Rd South Elgin, Illinois 60177. Don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment for a brighter smile! 630-883-8146
