Teeth Whitening

If you’re tempted to opt for store-bought teeth whitening kits over professional teeth whitening treatments, don’t! Professional teeth whitening in North Aurora is the safer, faster, and smarter way to whiten yellow teeth. 

Faster Than Boxed Treatments

Many patients are surprised to learn that in-office professional teeth bleaching is actually very fast and efficient. Because professional teeth whitening allows you to customize your results and control the strength of the whitening gel used, the time you spend in the dental chair will be more efficient than repeatedly doing at-home whitening treatments using materials from the drugstore. 

When you choose in-office teeth whitening in Sugar Grove, IL, you can expect your bleaching appointment to last approximately 30 to 60 minutes. You can visit us during your lunch break, after work, or even on a Saturday morning! After just one session of professional teeth whitening with Dr. Christine Wang or Dr. Xiaoyu Ma, you will notice a significant improvement, and your teeth will look several shades whiter and brighter. 

Maintaining Your White Smile

After your initial visit, you can come in for touch-up teeth whitening appointments a few times a year to maintain your pearly whites. By spending approximately one hour in the dental chair every few months, you can improve the look of your stained teeth and take your smile from yellow to white!

Everyone wants a brighter smile, and professional teeth whitening will give you the long-lasting results you deserve. Dr. Wang and Dr. Ma are cosmetic dentists in Aurora, IL that can masterfully whiten your teeth and restore your smile. 

Risks of DIY Teeth Whitening 

People tend to flock to DIY whitening kits, but these kits aren’t nearly as effective or safe as professional teeth whitening provided by your dentist. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products are often unreliable, resulting in a spotty, uneven whitening job. If not properly applied, these bleaching gels can also cause tooth sensitivity and gum irritation.

Several DIY whiteners boast they can give you the same radiant smile as Hollywood stars who walk the red carpet; however, professional teeth whitening performed by your dentist can lift hard stains, polish your teeth, enhance your smile, and can generally achieve the results you're looking for faster. 

Professional Teeth Whitening in Aurora, IL

Bleaching gels contain hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide, chemicals that remove stains and correct discoloration. Dr. Wang and Dr. Ma safely use professional-grade bleaching agents without harming your enamel or gums.
