Plainfield and Joliet IL Teeth Whitening
Currently, we offer three types of dental whitening options in our office. They each have different benefits we will explain here:
Professional White Strips
These are a cost effective option for the short term, and they will work when used as directed. Drawbacks include that it takes longer to achieve desired whitening and they are not for people with crowded teeth, because the strip needs to adapt to all the tooth surfaces.
Custom Bleaching Trays
We will take a mold of your teeth and fabricate custom-fitted trays that adapt perfectly to your teeth. You then place a whitening gel in the trays and wear them from one hour to overnight. You will see results more quickly with with this method, and these results can lasts up to 6 months or more. This process is more costly in the short term, but will save you money when compared to purchasing white strips over the course of a few years.
KöR Whitening System®
We are proud to offer the KöR® system as a premium whitening system. First, highly accurate impressions are taken of your teeth using a polyvinyl siloxane material and sent to KöR® laboratories where trays are fitted to your teeth. The KöR® whitening gel is different from all other gels currently available and works by destroying ‘stain molecules’ deep within the tooth. There is little to no sensitivity with this method. We use this option for patients that want the best whitening option available or who have tried other whitening systems in the past and have been unsuccessful. The only drawback is that this system is more costly when compared to the two previously mentioned, due to the precise method of tray fabrication and premium whitening gel.
