Teeth Whitening | Mount Prospect, IL
Our teeth naturally lose their sparkle over time. As we grow older, they become yellow, which can damage our self-confidence in a world where appearances matter. Thankfully, brightening your smile is simple and affordable with our teeth-whitening dentist, Dr. Yajima. We provide professional and safe in-office and at-home teeth-whitening procedures at Smile Solutions Dental Center.
When discoloration results from surface stains, a consistent routine of brushing and flossing daily will whiten discolored teeth. If your teeth are yellow because the enamel has worn down and the color of the dentin underneath the surface enamel has darkened, our teeth-whitening treatments may be the perfect option for you. Whether it’s age, oral care habits, or genetics, we offer a variety of teeth-whitening options that will set you on the path to the dazzling smile you deserve.
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because of its affordability, non-invasive technique, and almost instant results. Teeth-whitening treatments at Smile Solutions Dental Center are fast and easy. We can whiten the most darkened or yellowed teeth, removing stains near-permanently with peroxide-based bleaching agents and custom trays.
How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?
The condition of your teeth, the degree of the staining, and the bleaching system you choose all play a part in how white your teeth become and how long they’ll stay white. Just as your teeth naturally darken over time, so will your new bright smile. Most patients don’t notice any fading until 6 months to a year after treatment. We offer quick touch-up procedures at any time.
Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Over the Counter
Our safe and convenient teeth-whitening treatment system involves an initial appointment with our team in which we take impressions of your teeth to create a customized set of trays. Then, at home, with our custom trays, you can achieve your preferred whiteness in as little as 15 minutes. This system comes in a variety of different strengths so that you can choose the level of whiteness most suitable for you.
Over-the-counter whitening systems are normally safe and effective as long as they’re used correctly and consistently. However, working with a dental professional ensures you receive individualized care that best fits you and your unique dental needs and past dental work. At Smile Solutions Dental Center, we fully assess your teeth and gums to determine which teeth whitening treatment would be best for you. Our products are the safest, most effective available, which means you’ll receive faster, more noticeable results under the most professional care and supervision.

Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes! Teeth whitening with bleach has been around for years, and all our techniques are ADA-approved. The American Dental Association says that hydrogen peroxide whiteners are safe and effective. We recommend you follow the product’s instructions carefully. Give us a call if you find the whitening process is causing you discomfort.
How long does teeth whitening last?
Using your teeth-whitening products consistently will keep your smile from darkening. If your goal is to keep your teeth at their whitest while avoiding using teeth whiteners as often, brush and floss regularly, quit smoking, limit stain offenders, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, and regularly attend your dental cleanings.
