NORTHBROOK, IL, June 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Normal teeth are typically not the shade patients desire them to be, and because of this, teeth whitening has quickly become an extremely popular option for Northbrook patients in obtaining a sparkling, white smile. By visiting Dr. Howard Block, patients can find the best solution for brightening their teeth.
Teeth whitening done by Dr. Howard Block, a dentist in Northbrook, is one of the safest and most effective way to get whiter teeth. In office whitening can lighten teeth three to eight shades in one hour. Professional teeth whitening works faster than other methods and will protect sensitive gums and tooth-root surfaces. Explained below are a couple options that patients should consider.
In-office whitening is the fastest and most powerful whitening solution. The gums and tooth-root surfaces are covered with a protective barrier for patient's protection. A retractor will be used to hold the lips and cheeks away from the teeth before the professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel is applied. The gel is left on for an hour and is then removed. Results from in-office whitening are seen by instantly by patients.
Take home whitening is also an effective way to obtain a whiter smile. Rather than the dental office staff performing the procedure, the patient is in charge. Several weeks may be needed to obtain the results desired. Take home whitening works by the dental office taking a mold of your teeth. Two thin, flexible plastic mouth trays will be custom-made. There is one for the top and one for the bottom. Patients fill the trays at home with a whitening gel and position the trays on the teeth. The trays are to be left on usually around an hour at a time.
Other over the counter whitening treatments are available, as well. Studies have shown that using the over counter whiteners does not brighten as well as in-office. To learn more about teeth whitening in Northbrook, visit www.dentistnorthbrookil.com
