Teeth Whitening in Chicago
For a non-invasive treatment that can add shades of brilliance to your smile, Lawn Dental Center offers Kor® teeth whitening. Whether seeking to regain a tooth’s natural coloration or improve upon it, Dr. Charles Olono provides a product made to help patients reach their aesthetic goals comfortably.
Who Benefits from Teeth Whitening?
Professional teeth whitening can serve most patients seeking a more natural sheen to their smile without altering the structure of teeth. There are many situations where dental staining can be addressed particularly well by Kor. These situations include discoloration due to excessive fluoride exposure or use of medications known to have a cosmetic impact on teeth, something many whitening products cannot treat. Of course, Kor is also useful for more common whitening concerns. Teeth appearing yellowed due to the normal wear of the outer layers is a great example. Additionally, this cosmetic dental treatment minimizes stains caused by coffee, tea, wine, and smoking.
While capable, Kor is not a permanent solution. To keep your teeth bright, Dr. Olono works with you to provide regular maintenance. It is also important to note that teeth whitening will not change the color of restorations such as fillings or crowns. If you plan to receive these restorations and are curious about whitening, our dentist may recommend brightening the smile before adding a prosthetic. That way, your smile stays consistently bright.
What Does Teeth Whitening Involve?
At Lawn Dental Center, our goal is to replicate the look of a naturally white smile. The personalization of take-home systems produce noticeable results gradually and consistently; your smile stays beautiful in a realistic way. Patients receive customized whitening trays that securely hold the Kor whitening agent against their teeth to make sure the treatment is fully effective.
In your first cosmetic dental visit, Dr. Olono takes impressions of your teeth to manufacture the customized trays. Once these are ready, patients will return to our Chicago practice for the initial application. After this hour-long treatment, Dr. Olono
will provide you with proper care instructions for safe and effective at-home whitening. We also encourage regular follow-up visits to monitor your smile’s visible progress and to assist with issues arising during treatment.
The amount of time you will wear your tray at home depends on the degree of discoloration and your unique goals. Plans range from two 30-minute applications a day to wearing the trays overnight for a few weeks. Some sensitivity is normal after applying the gel, but Kor is specifically designed to keep that kind of discomfort at a minimum.
