Few people have naturally white teeth. Time and certain foods dull the color of your teeth.  Common foods can dull tooth enamel, which naturally becomes thinner and more translucent as you get older, revealing more of the yellow dentin layer beneath.

Restoring whiteness is possible, though it takes more than a simple change in toothpaste or adding an over-the-counter whitening product. Guided Light Optics® is the secret behind GLO Whitening, offered by Dr. Gary Alder and his team at Global Facial Aesthetics in River Forest, Illinois. Act now and you can take advantage of this special offer from GLO Science.

Why your teeth get stained

There are many reasons why your teeth can stain, including a reaction to some medications or a physical injury to a tooth. The most common reasons, though, are simply time, tobacco use, and the staining effects of certain foods and drinks.

Though tooth enamel seems solid and impervious, its structure is porous. Blueberries, tomato sauce, and red wine are notorious for their stains, while curries, soy sauce, white wine, and carbonated beverages can also dull your smile. Coffee and tea drinkers likely know of the staining effects of their favorite drinks.

The advantages of dental office whitening

There are plenty of over-the-counter whitening products, but you can only expect tiny improvements when using them. Consumer products must place a priority on safety, and since some of the bleaches used in whitening kits can be harmful if misused, your pharmacy kit is much less powerful than the products Dr. Alder uses.

Dental office staff frequently perform whitening procedures, so they’re trained and experienced with office-strength products. The GLO Whitening system adds both heat and light to further activate the power of these bleaches, which is why you can achieve teeth brightness that’s even lighter than your natural tooth color.

The GLO at-home extension

GLO offers an at-home extension to help keep your smile bright. The team makes custom whitening trays that fit your teeth perfectly.

Using compatible GLO products at home can help extend the life of your in-office treatment. Take additional care with staining substances, such as avoiding certain foods or drinking through a straw, and you can extend your brightest smile for months.

Everyone’s teeth are different, so discuss your whitening strategies with Dr. Alder for recommendations that will work best for you. Arrange a consultation by contacting Global Facial Aesthetics by phone to learn more about the GLO Whitening program that’s best for you.

Chris D.

I have been a patient of Dr. Alder’s for over 20 years and cannot say enough good things about him and his wonderful office team. Dr. Alder is a leader in the dental profession in Illinois and Chicago and has served on the Boards of both the Illinois and Chicago Dental Societies. I’ve had some real dental challenges over the years and I’ve felt that Dr. Alder always seemed to be going extra miles to make sure we we’re taking the right approach to treatment and that I understood the options available. I also had three dental emergencies during those 20 years and Dr. Alder and his team were always there when I needed them, They are all consummate professionals and—importantly—are also unfailingly gracious and cheerful. Dr. Alder is the best!
