Although yellowed paper gives old documents a look of historical importance, yellowed teeth only give their owners the look of having snacked on the Magna Carta. Cover your appetite for antiques with today's Groupon: for $179, you get a Zoom! teeth-whitening treatment at All Perfect Smiles, which has locations in Oak Forest and Palos Park (a $650 value).
The experienced staff at All Perfect Smiles specializes in making Chicagoland's choppers brighter, whiter, straighter, and healthier. The Zoom! whitening treatment begins with a brief prep session to cover lips and gums, leaving only whiteness-wanting teeth exposed. In an exact reversal of the age-old process used by tanning salons, a clinician will apply hydrogen peroxide–rich gel to both rows of bite bones before exposing them to special light. The hydrogen peroxide atoms absorb the light's energy, whipping them into an illumination-fueled frenzy capable of breaking up stains, discoloration, and fights between molars and incisors. Denticles are exposed to three 15-minute Zoom! cycles in one office visit; the treatment is safe and relatively painless, with some patients feeling only mild discomfort from heat produced by the light.
All Perfect Smiles
All Perfect Smiles' team—three dentists and one periodontist—collaborates to brighten smiles with a suite of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic procedures. Armed with more than 25 years of dental experience, the staff tend to teeth with cleanings, root canals, whitening treatments, and orthodontia such as Invisalign. The team can also resolve niche issues, ranging from sleep apnea to pediatric dental maladies. Regardless of the treatment, the team’s focus on patient education ensures that, unlike people who eat Pop Rocks, patients always understand what happens in their mouths.
