The 88th Academy Awards show in March 2016 drew an at-home viewing audience of 34.4 million, and the Oscars are just one of popular awards shows in this country. Small wonder so many watch. Gorgeous women in fabulous gowns and their dashing escorts stepping out of limousines onto the red carpet – the pageantry transports us from our living rooms to a magical place. Celebrity appeal goes beyond fashion, though. We are fascinated with those stunning white smiles
, too. Women and men throughout the Chicago, IL area are getting show-stopping looks with professional teeth whitening services at Big Smile Dental.
Why choose professional teeth whitening?
There are two big reasons to trust your smile to the dentists at Big Smile Dental, rather than attempting whitening with over-the-counter products – safety and results!
When you choose professional teeth whitening service from Big Smile Dental, you have the guidance and oversight of a dentist who fully understands your oral health history. For example, if we talked with you earlier or provided treatment for sensitive teeth, that information is in your patient records. We know which type of dental restorations you have, and how they might respond to whitening. You can be sure that dental health problems such as cavities or gum disease are addressed before we recommend whitening. We also know you as a person –
whether you are a coffee drinker or a smoker, and how diligently you brush and floss.
All of that information is taken into consideration when we recommend a whitening program that is right for you. Plus, as a Big Smile Dental patient, you can call us anytime at 773-772-8400 if you have questions or concerns as you whiten.
Most retail whitening products contain ten to 22 percent carbamide peroxide as a bleaching agent. That is about the equivalent of three percent hydrogen peroxide. The products used at Big Smile dental contain hydrogen peroxide in concentrations 15 percent, at minimum.
Treatment is safe with a dentist’s supervision, and achieves much brighter results, more quickly than anything you can purchase at the drug store.
Convenient options, too!
Because we understand that every patient has a unique mouth, lifestyle, schedule, and desired outcome, we offer a range off teeth whitening services. You may opt to whiten in the privacy of home, on your own schedule, with custom-made trays. These trays fit snugly and comfortably, to hold professional strength bleaching gel on your teeth and not on soft tissues or down your throat.
In-office whitening is an especially popular choice for fast results and convenience. You simply relax in the chair while we apply whitening gel and activate it with a special light. In about 90 minutes you have a bright, white smile. Treatment won’t harm teeth or restorations, and is long-lasting, with good oral hygiene.
If you want a smile that gets second looks for all the right reasons, schedule an appointment at Big Smile Dental.
