Drs. Skowron & Curtin
Brighten Your Smile
Life can be difficult if you don’t feel confident in your smile. Stained and discolored teeth often make people feel self-conscious, discouraging them from sharing their smiles with others.
Drs. Skowron and Curtin believe that everyone deserves to have a smile they feel proud of. That’s why we offer three different teeth whitening treatments, all of which allow you to brighten your smile in the comfort of your home.
KöR-Seal™ Trays are custom-made from digital impressions of your teeth to ensure a comfortable fit. The proprietary gel is so strong that it can even remove tetracycline stains with ease, an issue that often required porcelain veneers in the past.
KöR Whitening is also designed to prevent sensitivity in your teeth, causing little to no discomfort. Best of all, it conditions your teeth to bleaching and restores their youthful ability to absorb oxygen. This allows you to enjoy permanent results with minimal maintenance.
Opalescence is designed for maximum convenience, allowing you to wear your trays for as little as 15 minutes per day, depending on your case. The gel is available in four levels of concentration and three flavors for your convenience.
The main advantage of Opalescence is the flexibility it provides you. Depending on your schedule, you can wear your trays in the morning, at night, or even while you’re at work. As long as you follow instructions, you should see noticeable results within a week of starting treatment.
Unlike other whitening options, SheerWhite! treatment doesn’t require you to wear any trays. Instead, it uses whitening strips made from proprietary SheerFilm® technology that mold perfectly to your teeth.
These strips are easy to apply, comfortable to wear, and nearly invisible. By wearing them for just an hour or two per day, you can brighten your smile up to five shades in only five days.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is teeth whitening bad for your teeth?
No, teeth whitening treatments are completely safe. While you may experience some sensitivity following a whitening treatment, it’s usually mild and will diminish within a few weeks.
If you normally have sensitive teeth, be sure to let one of our dentists know and we’ll inform you of the best treatment options to address your concern. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to ask one of our team members and we’ll be happy to help you.
How long do the teeth whitening effects last?
The effects of the treatment typically last one year. Our patients usually come in for another treatment around that time. Certain lifestyle habits can impact the duration of the effects. You’ll want to follow a few tips to get the most out of your new white smile:
- Avoid tobacco use
- Limit food and beverages that tend to stain
- Use a straw
- Brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily, and rinse after meals
In addition to following the above-mentioned guidelines, you’ll want to visit our Winnetka office biannually for professional cleanings so we can remove any plaque and tartar to keep your teeth white and looking their best.
Do teeth whitening treatments damage existing dental restorations?
No, teeth whitening treatments won’t damage your restorations or impact their longevity. However, restorations will not whiten with a teeth whitening treatment. Be sure to notify one of our staff members if you’re considering a teeth whitening treatment and have restorations.
We’ll be happy to explain your options for achieving a whiter smile. If you’re interested in a teeth whitening treatment, schedule a consultation with one of our dentists.
