Brighten Your Smile through Simple and Powerful Teeth Whitening
Whiter teeth can make a great impression during a professional meeting, at a special event, or in a personal setting. Teeth that have dulled over time can have a negative impact on a patient’s confidence, and can make it difficult for them to smile with confidence. Age, certain foods and beverages, and smoking are some of the factors that can cause teeth to become stained or discolored. If you are unhappy with the shade of your smile, and would like to achieve a stunning set of whiter teeth, Dr. Teddi Olszewski offers professional teeth whitening treatments at her Northampton, MA, dental practice. If you are ready to restore the color of your teeth back to a beautiful, sparkling white, contact us today.
What are My Treatment Options?
Depending on your goals, we offer various methods for whitening your teeth. These cosmetic dentistry treatments have been proven to dramatically whiten teeth and improve smiles.
KöR® Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System
This deep bleaching system is a combination of in-office and at-home treatment. The groundbreaking treatment is typically administered in two parts to provide the brightest smile possible. During your first appointment, Dr. Olszewski will discuss how whitening may benefit you, address all of your questions and concerns and provide you with a consent form. From there, her team will schedule you back to take impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create custom mouth trays.
Once your trays have been fabricated, we will provide you with a whitening kit that you will take home and use as prescribed. Each tray will be used to apply the whitening gel evenly over the surfaces of your teeth. Typically the trays will be worn each night for two weeks while you sleep.
If you have tried over-the-counter whitening solutions, whitening toothpastes, or other products with unsatisfactory results, we can help you achieve your desired results.
After two weeks, you will be scheduled for a second in-office visit to finalize the treatment. During this visit, which typically takes about 90 minutes, we will "isolate" your teeth from your gum tissue and then administer stronger peroxide solution to eliminate the more stubborn stains. Since our bleaching components are refrigerated to maintain freshness, we do not need to stabilize them with special chemicals or lights that may cause sensitivity.
Once the combined treatments are completed, you will be able to experience the amazing results. In most cases, patients report that their teeth are more than six shades lighter following their KöR® treatment. Unlike other whitening treatments, KöR can provide permanent results and may help with fluorosis and Tetracycline stains.
At-home VenusWhite® Treatment
Patients who would like to achieve whiter teeth can do so solely in the comfort of their home. With an at-home treatment, we will provide you with customized trays and whitening gel. During your initial consultation, Dr. Olszewski will discuss how whitening may benefit you, address all of your questions and concerns and take impressions to create your customized trays. Similar to the KöR® in-office system, you will wear the trays for several hours per day, or overnight. Over a period of three to four weeks, the bleaching solution will whiten your teeth, resulting in an attractive, enhanced smile.
Achieve a Brighter Smile Today
Brushing and flossing every day are good preventive dentistry practices to maintain oral hygiene, but they cannot ensure whiter teeth. If you have tried over-the-counter whitening solutions, whitening toothpastes, or other products with unsatisfactory results, we can help you achieve your desired results.
A stunning set of whiter teeth can be accomplished quickly to give you a smile that will brighten any room. To get started with one of our proven whitening treatments, contact Northampton Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today and schedule your consultation.
