Teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most effective ways to improve your smile. Our dentists and team provide professional whitening treatments to brighten your smile and remove stains and discolorations from your teeth.

Your teeth may become darker in color due to a variety of factors, including:

  • The aging process
  • Foods and drinks that stain the teeth (tea, wine, coffee, soda, etc.)
  • Smoking and other forms of tobacco use
  • Illness or certain medications
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Fluorosis

There are two main types of teeth whitening: in-office whitening treatments and take-home whitening. When you receive an in-office whitening treatment at Modern Dental, we apply a powerful but safe whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. The gel application lightens the appearance of stains, discoloration and yellowing on your tooth enamel to noticeably improve the appearance of your teeth. With take-home whitening, you will be provided with custom whitening trays and a safe, effective whitening gel. As you wear the trays over a period of several weeks, your teeth will gradually lighten.

Dr. Morley, Dr. Hamel and our team will work with you to determine which type of whitening will be most effective and convenient for you. We invite you to call Modern Dental at (217) 698-3400 to learn more about teeth whitening and to schedule your appointment at our friendly dental office in Springfield, Illinois.
