There are many products and services out there that promise to whiten your teeth over time. At 1st Family Dental, we recommend the Zoom! Teeth Whitening procedure because it’s fast, affordable, and the results are amazing. Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatment can make your teeth up to eight shades whiter in just one 45-minute in-office session. Our skilled team of hygienists apply the whitener and monitor you the whole time so you can be confident that your teeth are being whitened safely and effectively.
Zoom! kits are also available for at-home use. These whitening trays offer an alternative to in-office treatment but typically take more time to achieve desired results. We’ll work with you to determine a plan that meets both your lifestyle needs and your teeth whitening goals.
A dental exam is required prior to any teeth whitening treatments to ensure that you are a good candidate and that your gums and teeth are healthy enough for this treatment. Bridges, crowns, and veneers can impact whitening; your dentist will develop a plan that works for your mouth.
Ever wonder how actors, musicians, and other celebrities have such perfectly shaped, bright-white teeth and smiles? This isn’t a coincidence. Most celebrities rely on veneers to get the smile they’ve always wanted.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain, resin, or composite material that are molded to fit in front of each tooth with the goal of improving its appearance. The veneer is bonded to your tooth in whatever form it’s in, meaning no additional drilling or shaping is needed in most cases. No special maintenance is required — just brush and floss like you would normally.
Veneers are a great, pain-free way to upgrade your smile without invasive treatments or procedures. In fact, the entire process can completed at our Elgin, Illinois office. Your dentist will take X-rays and make impressions of the teeth that you’d like to cover. Once the veneers are ready, they are bonded to your teeth using special dental cement and light. A follow-up appointment is then scheduled in order to check the veneers and make any adjustments that might be needed.
