Here at the dental office of Nicholas Polito, DDS, in Libertyville, Illinois, we are pleased to offer professional teeth whitening that makes our patients look and feel their best.

We always glad to answer your questions about teeth whitening. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that we hear:

Will teeth whitening damage my teeth?

Professional teeth whitening is safe for your teeth. It won’t harm the enamel on your teeth or the nerves inside them.

Are there different types of procedures for professional teeth whitening?

Yes. Dr. Polito offers several types of procedures, including traditional bleaching using a mouthguard and laser teeth whitening.

How does laser teeth lightening work?

In this cutting-edge high-tech treatment, we paint hydrogen peroxide on your teeth and then use lasers to make the whitening process faster and more effective.

How long will my teeth stay white after my teeth whitening procedure?

Teeth whitening will generally last for about six months to about two years. In some cases, the treatment can last a lot longer. You can help preserve your white teeth by avoiding getting them stained from drinking coffee or red wine, or from smoking.

Will my dental insurance pay for my teeth whitening?

Dental insurance usually doesn’t cover teeth whitening, but we will discuss costs with you in advance, so you can make an informed decision. We accept credit cards and will work with you to provide a convenient payment experience.
