Our Teeth Whitening Treatments

Teeth whitening procedures have become increasingly popular in recent years. As the daily consumption of coffee, wine and other stain-causing products have risen, so has the need to find treatments that help create beautifully white smiles. At Smile for Life Dentistry in Maryville, Illinois, we offer a variety of highly-effective teeth whitening treatments. Take a closer look at these systems and how they can help you achieve your smile goals, below.

Opalescence™

Opalescence™ is a chemically activated power whitening gel that provides brighter, whiter teeth after just 40 minutes in the dental chair. The safe, powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide gel is chemically activated, doesn’t require a hot, uncomfortable light to work, and usually takes only one dental visit to achieve desired results.

Take Home 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!

The Zoom! Teeth Whitening kit consists of hydrogen peroxide gel and an overhead lamp that delivers UV light. In the Zoom! teeth whitening procedure, the hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the patient’s teeth. Once the hydrogen peroxide gel has been applied, an overhead lamp delivers UV light to the teeth

Giving you confidence in your smile is very important to us here at your Maryville dentist, so call us at 618-288-6699 to discuss whitening options.

Important: While the teeth whitening procedures mentioned above have been proven to be effective, they are meant to accompany a good oral hygiene regimen. Practicing good oral hygiene can help combat stains and discoloration naturally, and it also helps maintain the results of your teeth whitening treatment.
