No matter how often you brush and floss, stains can still settle on your teeth. Aging, medications, food and drink, and the natural shade of your enamel can all play a role in your tooth color. If you’re looking for a way to brighten your smile, Chicago cosmetic dentist Dr. Gerilyn Alfe offers several teeth whitening options.
A bright smile can give you a youthful, healthy appearance. Don’t let stained teeth spoil your first impression: Please call Chicago Smile Spa at 773-348-2704 today to learn more about our teeth whitening services.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In house teeth whitening is faster and in some cases more affordable than having to continuously purchase over the counter whitening packages. The results of professional teeth whitening in Chicago are longer-lasting and more immediate. At Chicago Smile Spa, Dr. Alfe uses both the GLO whitening system and the AcquaBrite whitening system.
GLO Whitening System
The GLO Bright system is the latest teeth whitening technology that very few Chicago cosmetic dentists have at this point. The breakthrough product does not require Dr. Alfe to take impressions of your teeth, nor does she have to make custom trays – tasks that can be very time-consuming. Instead, all you need is 32 minutes in our comfortable chairs and the GLO whitening system will get to work on making your teeth noticeably whiter.
The GLO whitening system received the seal of approval after Dr. Alfe performed a test run which resulted in her lower teeth being 3 shades lighter in just 32 minutes. The product is extremely safe to use; it comes equipped with blue LED lighting which activates the whitening gel and the tray does not get uncomfortably warm while in use, making for an easy, relaxing teeth whitening experience. After the 32 minute in-office whitening session at Chicago Smile Spa, patients can continue whitening at home for 32 minutes for 5 to 10 days.
AcquaBrite Whitening System
Our other whitening program is the AcquaBrite deep bleaching system. Unlike other teeth whitening options, this revolutionary solution uses a specially formulated gel that doesn’t rely on lamps or lasers for activation.
AcquaBrite™ not only produces remarkable results but also is designed not to aggravate sensitive teeth. Many patients who have experienced discomfort during and after other whitening treatments now encounter little to no sensitivity.
Teeth Whitening Advantages
Some of the key benefits of whitening with GLO Bright or AcquaBrite™ include:
- A healthy, bright smile with little to no sensitivity
- Teeth are whiter in a shorter amount of time
- Treatment is comfortable
- Even the most stubborn stains, such as those caused by antibiotics containing tetracycline, often can be removed
- At-home whitening can help maintain and augment results between sessions
Dr. Alfe received specialized training in the use of the GLO Bright and AcquaBrite™ systems. When you undergo in-office teeth whitening at Chicago Smile Spa, you will be in experienced, knowledgeable hands.
We offer a variety of at-home whitening gels for our patients who can’t find the time to schedule in-office visits. At-home systems also work well for patients who don’t have significant staining.
Whether you need overnight or daytime whitening treatment, Chicago Smile Spa has a choice for you. After taking impressions of your teeth, you will be provided with custom trays and a whitening gel specially formulated based on your tooth color and sensitivity. Or you can opt for the GLO whitening system which only requires 32 minute sessions for 5 to 10 days, all from the comfort of your home.
The initial investment in tooth whitening is a one-time cost, with the total for a year-long shiny smile translating into roughly $1 a day – less than most of us spend on Starbucks on a daily basis!
Don’t let budget concerns keep you from a look that dazzles. Please contact Chicago Smile Spa or call 773-348-2704 today to learn more about our teeth whitening options.
