Dr. Dean Dietrich sees many patients in the Dolton area who are unhappy with the results achieved with over-the-counter whitening products. Strips, trays, and gel pens are available at the local drug store for patients who want to brighten their smiles. However, they often fall short of offering noticeable, long-term results. Patients visit Pleasant Dental® to determine if there are alternative ways to whiten their smiles in a more effective manner.

There are three methods of whitening available through our practice.

Whitening strips available over-the-counter can provide patients with results, but they are often not nearly as noticeable as the professional-grade strips available through our practice. At Pleasant Dental®, we offer the Crest professional strips which are higher in concentration and provide longer results than those available at the local drugstore.


Whitening trays are a popular choice for patients who have more discoloration. These trays are custom-made using impressions of the smile and fit much better than those purchased in the oral care aisle. Additionally, Dr. Dean Dietrich supplies patients with whitening gel that is far more concentrated and offers more dramatic improvements. Patients are educated on how to use the whitening gel with the trays in the privacy of their own home for safe, effective enhancements.

KöR Deep Bleaching

For severe staining, patients may enjoy the use of the KöR deep bleaching system. Dr. Dean Dietrich of Pleasant Dental® encourages patients with significant stains and discoloration to consider this deep bleaching solution when other options including strips and trays fall short of providing the results they desire. KöR deep bleaching combines in-office whitening as well as take-home whitening kits for the best possible results.

If you want to whiten your teeth with professional-grade products, contact the team at Pleasant Dental® today. Dr. Dean Dietrich and his team will assess your needs and determine which options is most appropriate. Whether you consider whitening strips, trays, or our deep bleaching solution, we encourage you to take the time to learn more about each and find out which one is best for enhancing your smile.
