Over time, you may notice that your smile has become dull or stained. Discolorations on your tooth enamel occur for a variety of reasons, including:
- Poor dental hygiene
- Foods and beverages that stain (berries, mustard, soda, tea, coffee, wine, etc.)
- Illness and medications
- Tobacco usage, including smoking
- The natural aging process
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoride consumption)
When this occurs, a quick and easy solution to improve the appearance of your teeth is professional teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most effective cosmetic dental treatments available and can noticeably enhance the appearance of your teeth in as little as one appointment at the office of Galliani, Mulvaney and Associates.
Professional teeth whitening relies on a powerful whitening gel. This gel is applied to the surface of your teeth and works to lighten stains, discolorations and yellowing on the tooth enamel. When whitening treatments are performed in our office, this gel is activated with a special laser to quickly brighten your smile. When provided in a take-home kit, this gel is applied to the teeth through whitening trays, which are worn for specific amounts of time as directed by our dentists. Take-home whitening has a more gradual effect, with the full results of your treatment becoming visible after several weeks.
When you visit our office, our dentists will work with you to determine which type of whitening is best for helping you reach your smile goals.
We invite you to call us at (847) 282-4955 to learn more about teeth whitening in Deerfield, Illinois, and to schedule an appointment with Dr. Robert Galliani or Dr. Larry Mulvaney.
