Teeth Whitening Services Oak Park, IL

Want Whiter Teeth?

Teeth whitening has become one of the most sought-after dental treatments. The beauty of teeth whitening is that it can be accomplished over a period of a few weeks, or in a single treatment as short as one hour. If you’re interested in teeth whitening, call us for a consult to find out which option suits your goals and situation.

In-office whitening and professional take-home whitening kits are two of the most popular options. Both of these options depend on a variation of peroxide concentrations and application times to whiten your teeth. Unlike drug store options, professional whitening treatments utilize customized tools and mouth forms to ensure an even white smile.

What You Need to Know about Teeth Whitening

  • Teeth whitening has become one of the most sought-after dental treatments. The beauty of teeth whitening is that it can be accomplished over a period of a few weeks, or in a single treatment as short as one hour. If you’re interested in teeth whitening, call us for a consult to find out which option suits your goals and situation.
  • A high-concentration peroxide gel will be applied to the teeth by a dentist or trained technician after the gums have been protected with a paint-on rubber dam.
  • The peroxide will remain on your teeth for several 15 to 20-minute intervals that add up to approximately an hour.

Professionally Dispensed Take-Home Whitening Kits

  • Although these kits are applied over a longer period of time, the results may be better over the long haul.
  • Take-home kits utilize a lower concentration peroxide gel that stays on the teeth for an hour or longer.
  • The lower the peroxide percentage in gel, the longer it may stay on the teeth. Sometimes this means keeping the gel on overnight.
  • A major difference between a professionally dispensed take-home kit and one from a drug store is the use of custom-made bleaching trays.
  • Unlike whitening strips that may only whiten your front four teeth, your dentist will fit you to ensure all of your teeth will be whitened evenly.

I have recently started visiting Dr. Lim for dental work and have had nothing but great experiences. I was hesitant in the beginning however, was won over right on the first visit. He is thus far the best dentist that I have visited. I have a number of dental issues and Dr. Lim and his staff have been nothing but knowledgeable and understanding about my needs; financial and otherwise. Highly recommend visiting the staff at Oak Park Dental Associates. The location is excellent, the staff is friendly and talented.
