Professional Teeth Whitening in Crystal Lake

Options that fit your lifestyle

A white, bright smile can help create a youthful appearance. We offer a number of different whitening options, depending upon your needs. We invite you to consult with us to determine which option is best for you. Our dentist may need to perform an exam to determine if your teeth are healthy enough for whitening.

In-office only:

If you are a candidate for whitening, we may suggest a procedure called chair side or in-office whitening, and it may be completed in as little as one visit. During an in-office whitening procedure, we will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect your oral soft tissues. A whitening agent is then applied to your teeth, and a special light may be used to enhance the action of the agent.

Combination in-office and at home:

Custom take-home whitening products typically come in a gel which is dispensed into a tray or mouth guard. These trays are made by your dentist to fit your teeth precisely. Usage may vary depending on the product. Some products are used twice a day for approximately 2 weeks, while others are intended for overnight use for 1-2 weeks.

At home:

We offer a professional alternative to common over-the-counter whitening options. It’s a simple and fast whitening treatment that can also be used for whitening touch-ups. It uses prefilled, disposable trays that don’t require impressions or custom trays.
