Is your smile stained or discolored? Do you wish for a whiter, brighter smile? For patients with yellowed teeth with no dental restorations, Dr. Laney Schuman may recommend teeth whitening in Granite City, Illinois. Other shades of staining may not bleach as well as yellowed teeth, or they may not bleach at all. Dental restorations, like dental fillings and dental crowns, will not react to the whitening product, so they will stand out against a whitened smile. At Midwest Family Dentistry PC, we offer both in-office and at-home whitening.

With in-office whitening, our dentist will apply the whitening product directly to your teeth. Then, using heat, a special light, or a laser, our dentist will enhance the effects of the whitening product. In-office whitening is the fastest way to whiten you teeth. You will be able to see results in just one treatment, but depending on the desired level of whitening, several treatments may be needed.

Our dentist will supply you with a custom-made bleaching tray and a gel whitening product if you choose at-home whitening. Wear the tray with the gel as prescribed by our dentist. Usually, treatment time is for several hours a day or during the night for up to four weeks.
