Your dentist in Naperville, IL, Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi of Advance Family Dental Care in Naperville, IL, offers many services that will help you improve your smile. One of these treatments or restorations may be the perfect option for you.

Tooth-colored fillings

No one has to know that you had a cavity, thanks to tooth-colored fillings. The fillings are made of composite resin, a flexible material tinted to match common tooth shades. In addition to blending in with the color of your teeth, composite resin fillings bond to teeth, strengthening them.


From fillings to orthodontic treatment, dental treatments have become much more subtle over the years. Invisalign, a discreet alternative to metal braces, straightens your teeth and corrects mild to moderate bite problems. During your treatment, you'll wear a series of clear, removable aligner trays that fit over your teeth. Every two weeks, you'll begin wearing a new set of trays. Each tray is designed to exert gentle pressure necessary to realign your teeth.

Tooth restoration

Missing teeth affect your appearance and ability to chew and can even lead to speech difficulties. During your visit to the Naperville, IL, dental office, your dentist may recommend one or more of these restoration options:

  • A Bridge: Bridges replace one or two missing teeth and consist of artificial teeth attached to crowns that are cemented onto supporting teeth.
  • Dentures: Dentures replace all of the teeth in your upper or lower jaw. Thanks to advancements in denture technology, today's dentures look and feel more natural than ever.
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants offer the next best thing to growing new teeth. Small titanium posts placed in your jawbone bond to the bone and become your new roots. They're paired with dental crowns to replace the visible parts of your teeth. Once both parts are connected, you'll have fully functioning teeth that offer excellent biting power.

Teeth whitening

Have you been feeling a little self-conscious about your smile? Teeth whitening offers a simple, inexpensive way to get rid of stains that dull teeth. Your dentist applies a professional-strength whitening gel that bleaches away stains, leaving your teeth noticeably whiter.

Would you like to enhance your smile with a cosmetic dentistry procedure or service? Call your Naperville, IL, dentist, Dr. Zomorrodi of Advance Family Dental Care, at (630) 358-9899 to schedule your appointment.

Picture yourself with a beautiful smile…what do you see? Besides straight and uniform teeth framed by the gums, you should also see one other thing indicative of a great smile—your teeth an attractive shade of translucent white.

But as you age your teeth can begin to dull as the enamel loses its translucency and the underlying dentin thickens and yellows. You no longer have the bright smile you once had in younger days.

But if the discoloration is mainly on the outer enamel, teeth whitening could be your answer for regaining your youthful smile. This is a procedure in which we apply a solution containing a bleaching agent (usually hydrogen peroxide) to your teeth. Aided by heat or light to activate it, the solution can temporarily whiten the enamel.

Teeth whitening isn't an exclusive treatment provided by a dentist—there are a number of retail products that enable you to bleach your teeth at home. But there are distinct advantages to having your teeth professionally whitened.

For one, we can control the level of brightness by adjusting the strength of the bleaching solution. This allows you to achieve the kind of look you want—from a more natural and subtler shade to a more dazzling color often called “Hollywood White.”

Any external teeth whitening application will fade with time, regardless of whether they're professional or DIY. But a dental office whitening may last longer due to our stronger solutions and curing techniques. And, by caring for your whitening (by avoiding tobacco and food items that stain teeth) and obtaining occasional touch-ups in our office, the shine could last for a few years.

Again, this particular whitening technique only works with outer staining and yellowing. If your discoloration originates from inside the teeth, you'll need a more invasive method. And your teeth should be reasonably healthy before undergoing whitening.

All in all, though, teeth whitening is an easy and affordable way to brighten your smile. It could help you take years off your appearance.

If you would like more information on teeth whitening, please contact us or schedule an appointment for a consultation. You can also learn more about this topic by reading the Dear Doctor magazine article “Teeth Whitening: Brighter, Lighter, Whiter….”

Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi of Advance Family Dental Care in Naperville, IL, helps your whole family stay healthy with great oral care. If you're concerned about the shade of your smile in the 60563 zip code, here are some tips from your dentist on staying stain-free.

Everyone wants to present their best smile, but some of the things we enjoy can be bad for our teeth and lead to staining. Use of any tobacco products can lead to staining, and your dentist will recommend quitting to lower your risk of oral cancer. If you've quit smoking, think about treating yourself to a teeth whitening treatment in our Naperville, IL, office.

There are some drinks that can stain the teeth if consumed often, like:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Soda
  • Wine
  • Sports drinks
  • Dark berry juices

Some foods can also stain teeth, for example:

  • Beets
  • Berries
  • Hard candy
  • Tomato sauce or ketchup
  • Soy sauce

It's best to have these foods and drinks moderately and enjoy them with water to rinse your teeth.

Of course, regular brushing and flossing are essential to a great oral health routine. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. This helps remove plaque to prevent tooth decay and staining of the teeth. Eating a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables can actually help clean your teeth while you eat.

If you want a brighter smile, consider a professional teeth whitening treatment. Many of our patients have tried drugstore products to whiten their teeth and these produce mixed results at best. These kits are actually easy to misuse and can damage your gums. At a teeth whitening appointment, your gums are protected and your teeth are monitored by a dental professional the entire time.

Advance Family Dental Care wants to help you present your best smile. Be careful what you eat and drink, and come see Dr. Zomorrodi for a teeth whitening treatment! Contact us for an appointment in Naperville, IL, at (630) 357-2332.

Before turning to the pros, you may want to try an over-the-counter whitening product.

During chairside whitening, Dr. Zomorrodi will get to know your goals for treatment and create a custom whitening plan based on those needs. From there we will apply a powerful whitening gel to your teeth, where it will stay on your teeth for up to 10-15 minutes before being washed off. In some cases, patients may undergo 2-3 whitening gel applications during their treatment. Once the treatment is over you will see visible results.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Maybe you want to get a whiter smile but you’re still on a pretty strict budget. No problem! The dental team at Advance Family Dental Care knows that you still deserve a beautiful smile even if in-office whitening is just a little outside your budget. This is why we also offer at-home whitening. This system is strong and more effective than any over-the-counter methods. Most patients see results from continued use after just one week. If the idea of whitening from home sounds appealing, know that you can still get a whitening system that is safe, doctor-approved, and effective.

More About Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening turn back time and eliminate stains, dullness, and discolored teeth. Your Naperville, IL, dentist's technique offers impressive results. Dr. Zomorrodi uses a tooth-whitening agent that consists of powerful bleaching material to rejuvenate your smile. The bleaching material penetrates the tooth's enamel (white protective layer of the tooth) and makes teeth brighter. The reason enamel stains over time are because it absorbs brightly colored foods and beverages. Brushing with toothpaste and using mouthwash helps remove many of those stains, but a professional tooth whitening treatment is more powerful.

Plus, it may take several times using this product to get a result. Your Naperville, IL, dentist can make your teeth 3-8 shades brighter in about an hour with a professional teeth whitening.

Maintaining a proper dental care regimen helps professional teeth whitening last longer. It's not just about brushing and flossing to avoid decay and discoloration.
