Laser teeth whitening from Downers Grove cosmetic dentist Dr. Morgan is a laser-fast way to get the most brilliant smile you’ve ever had. In a single appointment, a dull smile can quickly be made to sparkle.
The Difference with Teeth Whitening from a Dentist
Many people find that do-it-yourself whitening kits really don’t produce noticeable results. Whitening gel from a dentist is strong enough to penetrate your teeth and get rid of stains. Dr. Morgan supervises the treatment and makes adjustments as needed. In advance, he will determine the cause of your teeth stains, the correct strength of bleaching gel for you, and even whether or not bleaching your teeth is the right way to treat the stains.
Why Choose Laser Whitening?
Most of Dr. Morgan’s patients choose laser teeth whitening because in three 15-minute sessions, your teeth can become amazingly white—up to nine shades lighter. The natural pigmentation in your teeth will lighten to give you the whitest smile you’ve ever had.
This is a great option to quickly whiten your teeth for special occasions. Many people prefer it to take-home treatment, which takes about two weeks to complete.
How Does It Work?
Teeth whitening works best shortly after your teeth have been cleaned. The cleaning removes plaque and tartar on your teeth and helps maximize the benefits of whitening them.
Before your teeth are whitened, we will insert a cheek retractor to ensure your teeth are completely exposed. Your lips and gums will be protected to keep the bleaching gel on your teeth only. We will dry your teeth and put gel on them.
After a few minutes, a laser will be used to boost the gel and help it break down stains. The laser will make your teeth feel warm, but it won’t be uncomfortable. We will rinse off the gel and repeat the process twice. The three 15-minute sessions will give you a brilliant smile. We’ll show you the difference between your former tooth color and your super-bright smile.
As your tooth color settles over the next few weeks, you can decide if you want to schedule another whitening session. Follow Dr. Morgan’s recommendations for at-home touch-ups to keep your smile bright. You will receive customized whitening trays, made from impressions of your teeth that we have taken.
