What Is Teeth Whitening?

Your teeth go through a lot, and over time, they may start to look dull and discolored. Teeth whitening from Dr. Rodriguez at Diversey Dental Studio is the best way to reverse tooth stains and yellowing. Teeth whitening uses special chemicals to “bleach” stubborn stains away from your enamel, restoring the natural brightness of your teeth. We offer a variety of teeth whitening treatments, including in-office whitening, custom trays, and whitening strips. Contact us today to schedule your cosmetic consultation at Diversey Dental Studio.

Teeth whitening only works on your natural teeth. The chemicals used to whiten your natural enamel won’t affect the color of dental work like fillings, veneers, and crowns

In-office whitening

In-office whitening involves applying powerful peroxide whitener to your teeth in 4-15 minute intervals. It offers the fastest results, since you can brighten your smile up from 5-10 shades in a single appointment, but we do not recommend it for patients who have sensitive teeth.

Take-home custom trays

With take-home trays from Diversey Dental Studio, Dr. Rodriguez will take scans or impressions of your teeth, and work with a dental lab to build a set of reusable whitening trays. Then, you’ll pick them up, along with a set of whitening products, and whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, usually for 30 minutes to 2 hours per session.

Whitening strips

Whitening strips are the simplest way to brighten your teeth. We offer professional-grade whitening strips that include an anti-sensitivity compound, which makes them great if you have sensitive teeth. You will wear each strip for about 15-30 minutes, then throw them away and get back to your routine.

Maintaining your results

You can expect to maintain the best results for about 1-2 years after your teeth whitening treatment. There are lots of steps you can take to keep your teeth looking bright, such as brushing and flossing regularly, eating a tooth-healthy diet, and avoiding staining beverages like coffee, tea, and cola. We also recommend coming to Diversey Dental Studio for six-month teeth cleanings and checkups. We also offer teeth whitening “touch-ups” to help restore your smile if your teeth start to look dull, yellow, or discolored in the future. At our office in Chicago, your smile is in good hands.

Frequently Asked Questions

Teeth whitening treatments can provide you with a beautifully white smile, but it's natural to wonder how long the results will last. While the longevity of teeth whitening varies from person to person, there are steps you can take to maximize the lifespan of your whitened smile.

The duration of teeth whitening results depends on various factors, including your oral hygiene habits and lifestyle choices. On average, the effects of professional teeth whitening can last anywhere from six months to two years. However, with proper care, you can extend the longevity of your results.

Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial in preserving your white smile. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist regularly for cleanings and check-ups. Avoiding habits that contribute to tooth discoloration, such as smoking and excessive consumption of staining foods and beverages, can also help prolong the effects of teeth whitening.

To maintain your white smile, you may consider touch-up treatments. At Diversey Dental Studio, we offer at-home whitening kits that allow you to conveniently touch up your teeth whenever necessary. These kits contain professional-grade whitening agents that can help you maintain your bright smile for longer periods.

Brushing your teeth regularly is an essential part of maintaining good oral hygiene. However, even with proper brushing, you may still notice that your teeth appear yellow. Several factors can contribute to this phenomenon.

One common reason for yellow teeth despite regular brushing is the natural color of your teeth. Some people naturally have teeth that are more yellowish in shade. This is often determined by genetics and cannot be changed through brushing alone.

Another reason for yellow teeth is the accumulation of plaque and tartar. Plaque is a sticky film that forms on your teeth and contains bacteria. If not removed through regular brushing and flossing, plaque can harden into tartar, which can cause your teeth to appear yellow.

Additionally, certain lifestyle habits can contribute to yellow teeth. Smoking, for example, is a major culprit. The nicotine and tar in cigarettes can stain your teeth, leading to a yellowish appearance. Similarly, consuming staining foods and beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine can also cause tooth discoloration over time.

If you're concerned about the yellow appearance of your teeth, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our dental team at Diversey Dental Studio. We can assess the cause of your tooth discoloration and recommend appropriate treatment options to help you achieve a whiter smile.

Are you tired of hiding your smile because of yellow teeth? You're not alone. Many people dream of having a dazzling white smile that exudes confidence and radiance. The good news is that yellow teeth can indeed become white again with the right approach.

Yellow teeth can be caused by a variety of factors, including aging, genetics, poor oral hygiene, and certain lifestyle habits like smoking or consuming staining foods and beverages. Fortunately, there are effective teeth whitening treatments available that can help you achieve a brighter, whiter smile.

At Diversey Dental Studio, we offer professional teeth whitening treatments that are safe, effective, and tailored to your specific needs. Our experienced dental team will assess the condition of your teeth and recommend the best whitening option for you.

Whether you choose in-office teeth whitening or at-home whitening kits, our treatments utilize advanced technology and professional-grade whitening agents to remove stubborn stains and discoloration. With our expertise and your commitment to maintaining good oral hygiene, your yellow teeth can be transformed into a beautiful white smile.
