Pioneers of Teeth Whitening
In 1995 we were the first dental office in New England to introduce Laser Teeth Whitening. In 1996, Britesmile decided to open a Teeth Whitening Center on Newbury St. in Boston and asked us to be the co-founders of this branch.
Since that time, we have been very involved in the world of teeth whitening. We have published a book on teeth whitening in the Russian language and even lecture on the topic internationally.
What Causes Teeth Staining?
Over time, teeth become darker due to one's lifestyle and habits. Coffee, tea, juice, certain foods, smoking and even aging cause teeth to take on darker shades causing that "pearly white" smile to deteriorate. Although food, drink and smoking staining is easy to whiten, naturally darkened teeth are more difficult.
Will Teeth Whitening Work for Me?
The best way to find out if whitening is the right procedure for you would be to consult your dentist rather than attempting over-the-counter whitening methods since bonding or porcelain veneers could be the solution to your specific case.
The in-office cosmetic whitening procedure is one that will yield the highest results and can whiten teeth up to 9 shades.
We have researched the available technology in the market and have chosen to use what we believe to be the best types of whitening systems. In both cases, the in-office light source whitening works by applying specialized whitening gel to your teeth, followed by the positioning of the light source directly on the teeth in order to activate the gel. The light source is then repositioned 3 times to maximize the results, achieving your brightest smile in just one hour.
- Uses a normal heat light
- Is repositioned 3 times every 20 minutes
- Total whitening time is 1 hour and a half
Unique Maintenance Therapy
At Dream Smile Dental We offer home care therapy to uphold the whitening result you achieve after the in-office whitening procedure. The Zoom Touch Up Pens and The LumaCool Pens contain a professional whitening agent keeping your smile bright and beautiful. For best results, apply for 3-4 days after the in-office whitening procedure and then keep on hand to touch up when needed every few months.
Another option is home bleaching. The Cosmetic Dentist takes impressions of your bite to create customized bleaching trays to be used at home with an advanced and more effective formulated gel than any over-the-counter bleaching options. This two week process can brighten your smile up to 5 shades.
