Teeth Whitening

There is nothing quite as striking as a brilliantly white smile. Unfortunately, teeth are susceptible to staining from beverages and substances such as coffee, tea, soft drinks, and tobacco. In the past few years, teeth whitening has become one of the most commonly requested procedures at our practice. Our Chicago and Oak Lawn, Illinois dentists offer teeth whitening with Zoom!2® – one of the most advanced laser whitening systems available.

Teeth whitening with Zoom!2® is fast, painless, and incredibly effective. Using the state-of-the-art Zoom!® laser in conjunction with the advanced Zoom!® whitening gel, our dentists can lighten the color of your teeth by as many as eight shades in under an hour. The entire process is completed in just three easy steps, and the results are immediate. The first step is to prepare the mouth for bleaching. We do this by covering your gums and lips, leaving only your teeth exposed.

The next step is the application of the Zoom!® whitening gel. This powerful hydrogen peroxide gel is specially designed to work in conjunction with the Zoom!® laser. Finally, the laser is used to activate the whitening gel. As the hydrogen peroxide breaks down, it causes oxygen to penetrate the enamel and dentin of your teeth. After approximately 45 minutes, your teeth will be bright white.

The Dental Implant Associates in Oak Lawn and Chicago, Illinois also have at-home teeth whitening kits available. Please contact our cosmetic dentists today to learn more.

Dental Bonding

Our Chicago and Oak Lawn, Illinois dentists are highly skilled in using dental bonding to improve the natural beauty of our patients’ smiles. If you are looking for a way to repair damaged teeth without undergoing a lengthy, complex procedure, dental bonding could be an excellent option. Chips, cracks, discoloration, and misalignment can all be corrected with this versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment. In addition to being pain-free, dental bonding also allows our dentists to preserve as much of the natural tooth as possible.

During the dental bonding procedure, the dentist first uses a special etching solution to prepare the teeth. This solution makes the surface of the teeth slightly rough so that it can readily accept the bonding resin. Next, the dentist applies the tooth-colored resin in a series of layers. Each layer is hardened by a special high-intensity light that dramatically strengthens the resin. Once the last layer is complete, the dentist carefully sculpts the bonded tooth to match the shape of the other teeth. Finally, the teeth are polished to give them a natural, healthy glow.

Tooth-colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are an exciting advancement in cosmetic dentistry. Rather than correct cavities with metal fillings, which leave an unnatural and unwanted glint, our dentists use a durable resin that is colored to match the natural shade of your teeth. Similar to dental bonding, filling a cavity begins with etching the tooth in preparation for the resin. Then the resin is gently applied to the cavity in layers, with a high-intensity light hardening and strengthening each layer. Once the hardening process is complete, the tooth is polished, which helps seamlessly integrate the filling with the tooth.
