Studies in psychology have shown that when you smile, the act itself stimulates positive messaging in your brain that can actually make you feel happier. A happy and attractive smile also conveys warmth, welcome, and confidence to others.
If you are self-conscious about your smile, you may not feel comfortable sharing it with others. Teeth may become dull or discolored for many reasons, such as:
Drs. Mike Milligan and Marisa Milligan at Eastland Dental Center, serving patients in Bloomington and Normal, IL, understand how important a healthy smile can be in your personal and professional life. Offering a complete range of advanced dentistry, our dental team is committed to helping our patients achieve good oral health and love their smiles.
At times, simply brightening your smile can take years off your appearance, boost your happiness, and transform your smile. We offer our patients several options for teeth whitening, including the Zoom! Professional System, KöR Whitening, and our “Whitening for Life” at-home trays.
At one appointment in our comfortable office, patients can achieve results up to eight shades whiter. The Zoom! system uses a combination of gentle whitening gel and advanced light technology for comfortable, quick, and long-lasting whitening.
Using professional grade bleaching agents, the KöR system can brighten teeth up to 15 shades whiter. The treatment starts with custom-fit trays that a patient uses for two weeks prior to in-office treatment.
This convenient program allows a patient to whiten his or her teeth in the comfort of home. The custom-made trays may be used in conjunction with in-office whitening or on their own for more gradual brightening. Patients purchase the initial tray and whitening material and they are provided a complimentary refill gel at each 6-month professional check-up.
A consultation with the friendly team at Eastland Dental Center will determine which procedure or combination of treatments is right for you. Call us today at (309) 663-4711 for more information.
