Port Clinton Dental Care offers effective teeth whitening treatments, providing professional quality results with a minimal investment of time. In as little as a one-hour appointment in Highland Park, IL, you can erase stains and leave our office with teeth that are several shades whiter. Dr. Michael Wasserman offers chair-side whitening services along with a professional-strength take-home kits to help you fit this treatment within your busy schedule.
Why Professional Teeth Whitening?
Natural enamel is porous, and over time, food and beverages cause stains to build and darken teeth. These stains and discoloration can cause patients to feel self-conscious. Effective tooth whitening can brighten and even eliminate staining to provide the brighter smile you want. Professional dental whitening provides reliable results on the shortest possible timeline, without damaging healthy enamel. Whitening is ideal for patients anticipating an exciting special event or to provide a daily boost in confidence with a whiter, more aesthetic smile.
Our Teeth Whitening Options
We offer multiple teeth whitening solutions to meet the varied needs of our patients.
For in-office treatment, Port Clinton Dental Care offers unique GLO Science Professional Whitening. This system can provide a dramatic change with a single treatment and prevent post-whitening sensitivity with long-lasting results. GLO, or Guided Light Optics, uses a combination of gentle heat and light distributed inside a unique, enclosed mouthpiece. As the light activates professional-strength whitening gel, the mouthpiece prevents oxygen from escaping. This feature is important because it is the process of oxygenation that breaks apart deep molecular stains in the enamel of the teeth.
Treatment first takes place in the dentist’s chair, divided into five eight-minute sessions. After this one appointment, GLO reveals a remarkably bright, vivid smile, with average improvement of five shades. You will also be able to take the GLO system with you to maintain your results from the convenience of your own home.
Opalescence® at Home
We also provide patients with options for at-home treatment. For the earliest possible results, you can use the Opalescence whitening system. For this kit, we will typically take impressions of your teeth to create customized trays. You will fill these trays with a gentle, safe carbamide peroxide formula and wear them for 30 minutes a day or overnight with a lower-dose formula.
Our teeth whitening and other cosmetic procedures can help brighten the shade of your teeth during a short, comfortable procedure.
Enhancing other Dental Treatments
Whitening can be combined with other procedures to help you transform your entire smile. Undergoing whitening before receiving a crown or bridge can allow you to receive a lighter shade of restoration. Dr. Wasserman also provides many cosmetic dentistry procedures to help you achieve and maintain a beautiful smile. We offer ClearCorrect, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, and more to help you achieve the smile you have always wanted. You can combine whitening options with other treatments in a custom smile makeover.
