Teeth Whitening in Elgin: Do It Right

Elgin dentist teeth whitening

As the years go by, our teeth naturally lose their luster. Dark colored foods and drinks speed up the process, but even people who avoid coffee, wine and cola can have yellow or gray teeth. Want to brighten up your smile? At David Rice DDS in Elgin, we provide expert teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to look younger and more attractive. But our patients who haven’t thought about it before usually have some questions, like the following.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

Though some teeth whitening patients experience a little short-term sensitivity, most experience no pain at all.

There are several different methods for whitening teeth. Each uses a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have accumulated in the microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.

Do Over The Counter Products Work?
Whitening strips, mouthwashes and toothpastes use lower concentrations of whitening agents than in-office methods. They rarely remove all of the stains on your enamel.

Over the counter products can’t match the results you’ll get from You professional whitening. And don’t count on the whitening kiosks you see at the mall.  These are largely unregulated and wrkers often have little dental training. Do you really want to take chances with your smile?

At David A. Rice, DDS in Elgin, we offer in-office and professional grade take-home teeth whitening kits. We also provide other cosmetic dentistry services, and dental implants. Visit our smile gallery to see what we can do.
