Why Do Smiles Darken?

  • The enamel that composes your teeth loses its luster with age
  • Red wine, coffee, and even tea can stain your teeth
  • Some medications, like tetracycline, can permanently darken enamel
  • Brushing and flossing can’t remove stains that develop deep in the tooth

Should I Use In-Office or At-Home Teeth Whitening?

It all depends on your personal goals for teeth whitening! Our Homer Glen staff uses Zoom! Whitening for in-office teeth whitening. Zoom! Whitening has been shown in clinical trials to effectively erase deep-rooted stains in enamel to lighten teeth by as much as eight shades. In-office teeth whitening only takes about an hour and you’ll emerge from Dr. DeAngelo's dental office with a shining white smile. This option is best if you want to immediately see the results of your cosmetic service at our Homer Glen location or if you want your teeth brighter for a social event, such as a wedding! Dr. DeAngelo is happy to help his patients feel and look beautiful.

However, if you would like to gradually whiten your smile, Dr. DeAngelo can recommend our at-home whitening system. A member of our Homer Glen team will fit you for a customized whitening tray and provide a prescription whitening gel. On your own time, you’ll load the gel into the trays and wear them for the prescribed amount of time. You’ll reach your optimum whitening level in about two weeks. You can also use this at-home care to upkeep the brilliant results of your in-office Zoom! treatment. If you have any questions about your at-home system, feel free to call our office.
