Teeth Whitening From Our Orland Park Dentists Refreshes Teeth

Written by Dr. Zaibak on May 12, 2015

Is your dark and dingy smile starting to get you down? Let’s do something about it!

Modern dental treatments have made it possible for our Orland Park cosmetic dentist to refresh aging and dingy smiles. Nobody wants to be stuck with stained teeth—so what are your options?

There are a number of different dental whitening treatments available today, and our dental team will be able to help you choose the one that is right for your smile. One of the main things that we are going to consider is what type of staining you’re dealing with.

If you are suffering from environmental staining—that is discoloration from foods, drinks and/or tobacco products—then professional dental whitening treatments might be great for you. These treatments work to actually minimize existing stains on and within the patient’s teeth. Our dental team will apply a whitening gel onto your enamel, and then allow it to go to work. You may see full results after just one session, or we may repeat this process multiple times.

Certain types of discoloration, like tetracycline staining and/or tooth darkening due to nerve damage, can be more difficult to treat with whitening gels. If professional whitening treatments aren’t cutting it for your smile, then we might use dental bonding and/or cosmetic Lumineers to help you reach your aesthetic goals.

Both of these treatment options involve covering the patient’s natural enamel with aesthetic materials. In the case of dental bonding our dentist will resurface the enamel with custom-shaded dental resin. If you choose cosmetic veneers, our team will cover your natural tooth with thin porcelain restorations. Both of these solutions can deliver complete, stunning smile transformations.

The first step to brightening your smile is to contact our Tinley Park cosmetic dentists for a consultation. We’ll walk you through your treatment options step by step!
