Chicago Teeth Whitening
Professional take-home teeth whitening kits available from your dentist contain a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide and provide excellent results in 1 to 2 weeks of prescribed use. Custom-fit trays keep the whitening solution on the surface of the tooth to be whitened. Impressions are taken of your upper and lower teeth and sent to the dental laboratory to make your trays. It will normally take 1 to 2 weeks for the dental lab to make your trays. The initial shade of your teeth is recorded in your dental chart for comparison when whitening has been completed.
During your dental appointment following the creation of the custom-fit trays, our team of expert dentists will show you how to dispense the teeth whitening solution and outline detailed instructions. Our sophisticated take-home teeth whitening is typically used one hour a day for two weeks, and can be used for touch-up applications thereafter. The amount of time it takes to whiten teeth can vary. Our average teeth whitening kit typically takes 2 weeks and for those dental patients with darker stains it may require longer.
