Find out how professional teeth whitening could make your day even more memorable.
Weddings are often considered one of the most important days in a person’s life. Don’t let the only white in the room be the wedding teeth whiteningdress. It doesn’t matter if you are the bride or the groom, professional teeth whitening is perfect for everyone when it comes to brightening smiles before a special occasion. Before you say “I do” to the one you love, say “I do” to your River Forest dentists Drs. Gina Piccioni and John Hartmann about teeth whitening.

What is teeth whitening?

The purpose of teeth whitening is to lighten the color of your teeth and remove external stains and discolorations. While you can also get at-home whitening treatments, if you are looking to brighten your smile before you walk down the aisle, then you’ll want to get professional whitening from your River Forest dentists.
In just one 45-minute session, we can get some smiles up to eight shades brighter. Even though one session can often get the results you want, some patients love getting subsequent whitening treatments every few months to maintain their results.

How is teeth whitening performed?

We will first evaluate the health of your smile to make sure no gum disease or cavities need to be treated beforehand. Once we’ve deemed your smile right for professional whitening, you will then schedule your whitening session. When you come in for your treatment, we will first clean your teeth. This will help to remove any buildup or food that could be causing your stains. Once this is complete we can start whitening.

During in-office whitening we can use a stronger bleaching gel than any at-home system, so you’ll get more radiant results faster. We will first apply a substance that will protect the gums during your treatment, and then the whitening gel will be painted on the teeth.
Some whitening treatments require a laser in order to activate the gel. We will tell you if this step is required. If you are interested in continuing with teeth whitening at home we will take impressions of your upper and lower teeth to create your whitening trays. These custom-fitted trays will allow the bleaching gel to cover more areas of your smile to give you better results.

Is the big day coming up? Luckily, teeth whitening takes less than an hour to complete. Get a radiant smile when you choose teeth whitening in River Forest. Call the dental experts at River Forest Dental Studio to schedule your whitening session.
