Teeth Whitening Evanston, IL
Is a special occasion approaching so you want your smile to be its brightest?
Stephens Dentistry offers both in-office (professional) and at-home teeth whitening.
We offer two different in-office whitening options: Opalescence QuickStart and a jump start appointment.
Opalescence QuickStart uses a chemically activated whitening agent to whiten your teeth. This means that there is no uncomfortable light during the whitening process. QuickStart also contains potassium nitrate and fluoride to help reduce sensitivity. Your QuickStart whitening appointment will be an hour and a half. During this time there will be three applications of the whitening product to provide the best results. Most patients see dramatic results after just one appointment. If you have heavily stained teeth, multiple appointments may be required.
For a jump start appointment, we use a 45% Opalescence tooth whitening gel in custom trays. This tooth whitening gel is a stronger version of the whitening gel that we provide for take home whitening. This appointment is to help jump start your at home whitening experience. Your teeth will be whiter after this appointment, but to achieve the best results, you will need to continue whitening at home.
At Home Whitening
Our dentists have found that at home whitening produces the best whitening results. At home whitening allows you to be in control of your whitening experience. With custom whitening trays and whitening gel, you can whiten whenever you wish to and as often as you would like.
Many of our patients are members of Stephens Dentistry’s Whitening Club. As a member of this whitening club, you receive a set of custom whitening trays as well as four tubes of whitening gel. Additionally, you get one tube of whitening gel twice a year at your routine hygiene appointments to help you keep your smile white. If you lose your trays, we will remake them one time for no additional charge.
