Welcome to Chicago Bright Smiles in Chicago, Illinois, where we are proud to provide comprehensive dental care for our patients in the Chicago, Illinois area. If your teeth have been less than stellar lately due to tooth discoloration, we are happy to help! Our dentists, Dr. Sudi Rafieian and Dr. Marshall Olech, provide ZOOM!® whitening, the leading brand of teeth whitening today.

Your pearly whites can become yellow, brown, and sometimes even grayish, depending on the cause of the staining which can be extrinsic or extrinsic. Extrinsic stains stem from outside sources which are often in your control such as:

Food—eating bright berries, curries and their sauces, or soy sauce.
Drink—regularly consuming coffee, tea, or red wine.
Tobacco—smoking or chewing tobacco.
Oral Hygiene Habits—not brushing and flossing daily.

Intrinsic stains come from conditions inside your tooth, causing it to darken, often from situations out of your control such as:

Medications—antibiotics (tetracycline), antihistamines, antipsychotics, antihypertensive drugs.
Fluorosis—to much fluoride in your system.
Trauma—chipped or broken teeth can darken because of deadened nerves.
Dental fillings—a large amalgam filling can make the enamel appear grey.
Genetics—your family tree can cause you to be born with tooth discoloration.
Aging—daily wear and tear can darken teeth.

Our Zoom! whitening only takes one hour in our dental office, and this professional teeth whitening treatment uses a powerful, safe whitening gel which is applied to the surface of your teeth. This gel lightens the appearance of stains, discoloration, and yellowing on your tooth enamel. If you are looking for a boost to your smile, our professional teeth whitening achieves a noticeably whiter smile in a short amount of time for your convenience.
