We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening at our office so that you can choose the process that’s right for you. In-office whitening offers very fast results, and can usually be done in just a single appointment at our office. Your dentist will clean and prepare your teeth, then apply a powerful whitener and activate it with a UV light. This process will be repeated until the proper level of brightness is achieved.
If you opt for take-home whitening, you’ll come to our office and get fitted for a set of whitening trays, which will be customized to fit into your mouth perfectly. You’ll come back to North Billerica Smiles in a few weeks to pick up a set of whitening products, as well as your completed trays.
After that, you’ll just follow the instructions to brighten your smile safely at home. You will get the same results as in-office treatment, though it may take up to 2-3 weeks or longer for your smile to brighten fully.
Dental bonding uses a special type of tooth-colored resin. This material is applied directly to your tooth to reshape it and cover up flaws like minor chips, stains, gaps between the teeth, and misshapen or uneven teeth. The process is quick, affordable, and totally non-invasive. You don’t even need to be numbed.
Shaping and contouring are also often used alongside bonding. This is done using a special tool to gently buff a layer of enamel away from some of your teeth. This is done to remove tiny imperfections and chips and to reshape pointed, uneven, or unsightly teeth.
Veneers are tooth-shaped “shells” that are made out of porcelain and designed to cover the front surfaces of your teeth. By covering your teeth, they can restore your smile and correct a wide range of cosmetic imperfections. Typically, it takes 2 appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks to get veneers.
Unlike bonding, though, veneers require permanent enamel removal, so the procedure is not reversible. However, veneers last longer than bonding, are completely stain-resistant, and are more durable.
