At Southland Smiles in Flossmoor, Illinois, our skilled dentists Dr. Mantoan and Dr. DiBenedetto, are pleased to offer teeth whitening for our patients who have tooth discoloration.Tooth discoloration can occur from various factors, depending on the cause of the tooth-staining. Extrinsic stains are caused by factors on the outside of the tooth such as eating or drinking foods such as coffee, tea, or wine, smoking or chewing tobacco, or poor oral hygiene habits. Intrinsic stains stem from whatever is going on inside the tooth, such as decay, taking certain medications such as tetracycline, over fluoridation (known as fluorosis), a chipped or broken tooth which has darkened from deadened nerves, or even having a dark amalgam filling in the tooth.

Our team at Southland Smiles in Flossmoor, Illinois, can brighten tooth color several shades as well as dissolve stains. This simple, effective cosmetic dental treatment can noticeably enhance your smile in as little as one treatment. Our professional teeth whitening treatments use a powerful yet safe whitening gel that is applied to the surface of your teeth to lighten the appearance of stains, discoloration, and yellowing on the tooth enamel. Teeth whitening is often available in both in-office and take-home systems. Professional teeth whitening can give you a noticeably whiter smile that will boost your self-esteem and help you smile with pride.
