    Teeth Whitening

    If you live in Matteson, IL, you can benefit from a teeth whitening procedure at our local dental office. At Progressive Dental And Associates, we are known for improving the appearance of our patients’ smiles. Dr. Durr is an expert cosmetic dentist and has multiple ways for doing so. We often recommend a teeth bleaching procedure because it is by far the easiest way to transform your smile. After cleaning your teeth, we can complete this procedure in time for a special event or as part of your regular oral health routine.

    People throughout Illinois have their teeth whitened on a regular basis so that they can look and feel great. As people age, it is common for teeth to become dull and yellow. This is in part due to age itself and also due to what a person eats and drinks. Drinking coffee, tea and wine, for example, can stain your teeth. Smoking and eating foods that contain food coloring can also stain your teeth. Brushing immediately after eating and drinking can help to prevent stains but is typically not enough to remove the risk entirely. Fortunately, stained and yellow teeth don’t have to stay that way.

    In-office whitening can brighten your smile up to 8 shades lighter. That’s 6 shades lighter than store bought whitening products.

    Teeth Whitening

    There are several types of teeth bleaching that you can try. Many people in Matteson start by using whitening toothpaste at home. This can help to brighten your teeth but is typically not enough to actually whiten them. We recommend toothpaste as part of an overall teeth whitening treatment but not by itself. After professional whitening, the toothpaste can help your teeth stay bright.

    Many people throughout the 60443 area try over the counter solutions like whitening trays or strips. These treatments work but not as well as professional solutions. As with most things, what you buy in the store is simply not as strong as what you can get from a medical professional. Additionally, store bought whitening trays are designed to fit everyone’s teeth, not your teeth specifically. This means that they can become loose, and the solution can leak, leading to gum irritation.​​​​​​​

    We recommend that people in Matteson, IL schedule an appointment with Dr. Durr, instead. Our professional tooth whitening solutions can transform the appearance of your teeth in a dynamic way. This is partially due to the strength of the solution that we use. Professional grade whitening gel can whiten teeth by eight shades or more vs. around two shades with store bought solutions. If you are looking for immediate and dramatic results, in-office whitening is a far better option.

    Why You Need Dental Checkup

    When a whitening solution is applied to the teeth, the hydrogen peroxide inside of the solution penetrates through the enamel. It then starts the oxidation process where molecules are transformed to reflect less or no light. This makes them appear colorless, and teeth appear white. This process is typically extremely effective for eliminating stains and can be repeated frequently.

    On occasion, the stains are too strong for a teeth bleaching procedure to work. When this happens, Dr. Durr can provide an alternative treatment. For example, patients in Matteson can have dental veneers placed on the surface of teeth in order to cover dark stains. This is often preferable for patients that smoke since veneers are stain resistant and won’t yellow quickly like natural teeth. Still, it is wise to try a teeth whitening procedure first, before starting a cosmetic one.

    At Progressive Dental & Associates​​​​​​​, we also recommend that patients have their teeth whitened before having other dental procedures completed. Most of the materials that are used in dental restorations or for cosmetic purposes are stain resistant and bleach resistant. For example, a dental crown won’t stain or bleach but should maintain its initial coloring with time. When a crown, veneer, bridge, or implant is created in a dental lab, they are created to match the shade of the surrounding teeth. If the surrounding teeth are yellow, these restorations will be created in a yellow shade. If the surrounding teeth are a brilliant white, the restoration will be as well. This makes the timing of teeth whitening procedures important. If you live in the 60443 area and know that you need a dental restoration, have your teeth whitening procedure scheduled first.

    Genetics, aging, and consumption of staining substances (smoking, coffee, tea, and colas) are just a few reasons why teeth appear dark.

    The procedure itself shouldn’t cause any discomfort and is relatively easy to complete. Before getting started, we simply recommend that patients schedule a dental exam with our Matteson dental office. Dr. Durr will then examine your teeth and gums to ensure that they are healthy enough for whitening. This way if any cavities or infections exist they can be treated first. To learn more or to get started, call (708) 980-0110 and schedule your appointment.

    Teeth Whitening FAQ

    What is teeth whitening?

    Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that lightens and removes discolorations and stains from the enamel and dentin of the teeth. It is a safe and effective way to enhance the brightness of your smile.

    Teeth whitening typically involves the use of bleaching agents such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These agents break down stains into smaller particles, making the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.

    Yes, when performed under professional guidance, teeth whitening is safe. Our dental experts at XYZ Dental ensure the use of approved, regulated whitening agents, minimizing any risk to your oral health.

    In-office teeth whitening usually takes about one to two hours. Take-home kits, with customized trays, may take a few weeks for gradual whitening, offering flexibility.

    Some people may experience temporary tooth sensitivity or gum irritation. These effects are generally mild and transient, resolving after the treatment. Our team takes measures to minimize any potential discomfort.

    The duration varies based on factors like diet and oral hygiene. With proper care, results can last up to a year or more. Periodic touch-ups or avoiding staining substances can help maintain whiteness.

    No, teeth whitening doesn’t work on dental restorations. If you have visible crowns or fillings, our team can discuss alternative cosmetic options for a uniform appearance.

    While generally safe, it may not be suitable for everyone. Pregnant or breastfeeding women and individuals with certain dental conditions should consult our experts for personalized advice.

    Over-the-counter products can offer some improvement, but professional treatments are more potent and provide faster, longer-lasting results tailored to your needs.

    Maintain your results by practicing good oral hygiene, avoiding staining foods, and attending regular dental check-ups. Our team can provide personalized tips for long-lasting whiteness.

    Staff was very friendly and professional. Dr. Durr was kind and gentle. Did not feel rushed and he answered all of my questions. He even asked permission to touch my teeth because I told him I was having pain. No dentist has ever done that. I am an extremely fearful patient and I felt comfortable and cared for during my visit. Thank you!
