Teeth Whitening – Get the Bright White Smile you have always wanted!

Does it seem like that no matter how much you brush you just can’t seem to brighten your smile?

Not all tooth staining or discoloration is the result of poor brushing habits. Some teeth experienced natural discoloration as well as other causes of permanent staining. Children and adults may have discolored teeth that are stained from drinking coffee, tea, and caffeine based soft drinks. Sometimes, discoloration is a natural occurrence stemming from medication interactions that can cause yellowing. Aging also creates a change in coloring as well as a internal tooth damage.

Regardless of the reason for tooth discoloration, it is possible to lighten or “whiten” your smile by using a tooth bleaching or whitening process. Dr. Nancy Block is an experienced cosmetic dentist who practices in the historic Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago and her goal is provide you with be best dental care available and give you the smile best smile possible, using advanced tooth whitening techniques.
Because the tooth whitening procedure is much easier and safer to do at home than in past years, it is a popular cosmetic procedure. In situations where nerve damage, smoking, or certain drinks are the cause of discoloration, the tooth bleaching process can be done on a recurring, as needed basis.

Dr. Block offers teeth whitening services as an easy-to-use in-home treatment. State-of-the-art products and techniques assure that your teeth bleaching will be done without harmful side effects and will make your teeth whiter in less time. These home bleaching systems achieve results in approximately 2 weeks. More challenging stains and discoloration may take longer to bleach and to achieve optimal results.

In-home teeth whitening systems allow you to do the bleaching process while you sleep, or on a weekend day while you work around the house or curl up with a good book.

Bleaching in intervals of 2-4 hours over a period of several days (a weekend) will create an effect that will last for much longer than the overnight method.The length of time that the teeth whitening remain effective is primarily dependent upon the food and drinks that you consume. On average, whitening treatments can last from six months to two years.
