At Grand Dental – Naperville, our team of experts recognizes how easy it is for stains to develop over time. Whether caused by smoking, dark-colored beverages and foods, or genetics, a yellowed or dull smile can take its toll on a person’s mental and physical well-being. This is why we offer professional teeth whitening in Naperville. Designed to produce results quickly and more effectively than store-bought brands, we encourage you to call our office to inquire about your candidacy for treatment.
During a consultation, our cosmetic dentist will review your oral health and determine if you have any dental issues that need to be addressed first (i.e., dental decay, cavities, gum disease, etc.). We’ll then go over your overall health history to make sure that you are in general good health.

The most common forms of professional teeth whitening include in-office and take-home whitening solutions. At Grand Dental – Naperville, we offer Opalescence take-home teeth whitening for patients like yourself.
Using Opalescence teeth whitening kits, we will provide you with customized trays that you will wear for a designated amount of time each day. These trays are designed to fit comfortably because of the fabrication that is based on impressions taken of your smile. In combination with the trays, you will use high-grade bleaching gel that is made to target stains and eliminate them for good. In just two weeks, you can expect to see a dramatic difference.
