We all want a bright smile that we can confidently show off, but sometimes our smile isn’t as white as we want it to be. At Chicago Beautiful Smiles, one of our cosmetic dentistry options serving Winnetka is teeth whitening. When you seek professional options for whitening your teeth, you can expect to get the best results possible and at our office, we offer two different whitening options so read about the benefits of each and see which one may be best for you.


Kor Deep Bleaching (Combination of At-Home and In-Office)


One of the least painful options that can last for longer than you think is Kor Deep Bleaching™, a predictable and effective whitening technique. Digital molds of your teeth are utilized to create the trays.  After your initial in-office “prime” appointment, we show you how to wear the trays at home for a total of 14 days. After the trays are worn, you come into the office for the “boost” (three 20-minute sessions) appointment and we determine if more at-home whitening is needed. There are many benefits to this type of bleaching, including:

  • Tough Stain Removal: The ability to whiten tetracycline-stained teeth, which was originally thought not possible.
  • Permanence: Your teeth can become up to 16 or more shades whiter and stay that way with easy and periodic home maintenance.
  • Lack of Sensitivity: Patients who normally feel sensitivity do not feel more than 10% of the sensitivity than they would from other bleaching gels.
  • Length of Treatment: By wearing the whitening trays for a minimum of 14 consecutive nights, you will see the best possible and even permanent whitening results. 


Custom Made Bleaching Trays


We also offer at-home teeth whitening, where your dentists make custom bleaching trays and include teeth whitening gel that’s superior to the over-the-counter products. After the dentists take impressions of your teeth to custom fit your easy-to-use trays, you can bring them home to begin the whitening process. You can wear the at-home trays whenever it’s convenient for you—even while you sleep. The benefits of at-home treatment are:

  • Flexibility: At-home treatment is quick and effective, while also giving you the ability to fit the treatment into your busy schedule, when it works for you. 
  • Less Office Time: Because you are choosing to whiten your teeth at home, you do not have to come into the office as often as you would for in-chair treatments.

Are you ready to take a step toward a newer and whiter smile? If you think you would be interested in teeth whitening, call us today or visit our request an appointment page. Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching are happy to see you for a complimentary consultation.

Real Patient Reviews

I have been going to this practice for several years now. I seemingly never have to wait when I arrive at the office and they are all very professional. Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching have been terrific. In addition to doing great dental work, each has a great rapport with their patients. All of their assistants have been top notch as well.

I recently met with Dr. Ching to have some dental work done, and had an exceptional experience at this office! I usually hate going to the dentist, but this experience was different–this office is hands-down, THE nicest dental facilitiy I have ever seen.

- Shaun F.

This dental office is something I haven’t seen before. I had many past dental experiences at other dental offices (unfortunately not good) and finally I found Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Hartlieb had helped me restore my teeth to a beautiful smile.

- Natasa R.

I am a loyal patient for over (yikes!) 20 years because I appreciate the time, skill and patience of the entire team. As proof of my gratitude, I live in the city and reverse commute every six months for my appointment.

- Dennis H.

Dr. Hartlieb is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. He has transformed my smile into something of beauty. In fact, many people comment on how beautiful my teeth are who do not even know that I have had major dental work performed. I used to never want to smile that large before, but now I smile as big as possible when photographed.

- Fran L.

I always have a great experience when I go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. The staff is amazing and Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The facility is incredible and I feel like I’m being treated with the best technology in the dental industry. Go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles for a consultation and I guarantee you will go back time and time again. It does not get any better in the Chicago area.

- Antonio S.

I had a great experience with Dr. Ching – very professional and thorough in his craft. I had been seeing my previous dentist for the past 15 years; however, I am ready to make the permanent switch to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Ching is great at explaining the procedures he was performing and made my visit comfortable.
