Teeth Whitening

Dr. David, Bolton, MA Dentist, Teeth WhiteningThere are so many products and techniques available for patients who want to achieve a brighter smile, that it can be difficult to choose the method that is right for you. The best way to begin any teeth-whitening regimen is to schedule an appointment and talk to your doctor about the differences between a professional whitening treatment and using at-home whitening product.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In a professional appointment at a dental office, called in-office whitening, your dental professional will apply a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. The entire office visit generally takes about 90 minutes and you will be able to see results immediately.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

  • Tray Whitening

Tray bleaching is a type of professional whitening that uses custom-made trays and whitening gel only available through your dentist. The whitening gel is placed in custom-fitted trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. As the peroxide in the gel breaks down, hydroxyradicals help remove stains from your teeth. Instead of one appointment, at-home professional tray whitening generally takes 10-14 days, although you may notice results in as little as three to five days. Some ingredients may be designed for maximum comfort for the longer duration over which they’re worn.

  • Paint-On Teeth Whiteners

There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening options, which tend to be less expensive and less effective than whitening strips or professional options. Paint-on teeth whitening gel is applied to the tooth using a small brush. The gel hardens into a film coating the teeth, and eventually dissolves in the mouth. As with any teeth-whitening regimen, it’s recommended that you consult with a dental professional before starting.

  • Teeth-Whitening Strips

Teeth-whitening strips are thin, flexible plastic (polyethylene) strips with a thin film of hydrogen peroxide on one side. Usually kits come with different shaped strips intended for either upper or lower teeth. The strips are applied across your teeth and gently pressed to ensure fullest possible contact with each tooth. Teeth-whitening strips are typically worn for 30 minutes a day, twice a day. The duration of treatment will vary.

  • Whitening Toothpaste and Mouthwash

The least expensive options are whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes. These products work to remove surface stains using mild abrasives. However, unlike the materials used in professional whitening procedures, these products do not lighten the actual color shade of the tooth. Whitening toothpastes affect surface stains and will mildly lighten your teeth.

Veneers

Veneers provide a real solution to gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth for a more confident, beautiful smile. Veneers are natural in appearance and are a perfect option for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile.

They are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front side of your teeth. A major benefit is that they’re made from tooth-colored materials (such as porcelain), which will blend seamlessly with your other teeth. To create your veneers specifically for you, your doctor will create a unique model of your teeth and send it to a dental technician who will create your veneers. Before placing your new veneer, your doctor may need to make conservative alterations to the shape of your tooth for the desired fit and aesthetic result.

Dr. David, Veneers, Bolton, MA Dentist

Once in place, you’ll see that veneers look just like your natural teeth. Just remember that even though veneers are stain resistant, your doctor may recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to maintain the appearance of your beautiful new smile.

ZOOM!® Whitening

Zoom!® is a professional teeth whitening treatment that gets your teeth an average of eight shades whiter — in just one hour. The treatment is safe, simple, and relaxing! Plus, Zoom! is championed by dentists and patients as a pain-free process.

Dr. David, Bolton, MA Dentist

  • To prepare for Zoom! whitening, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.
  • Your lips and gums will be covered with an isolation material to protect them during the treatment.
  • Then, we apply the Zoom! whitening gel, which is activated by the Zoom! light source. The gel and light work together to gently break up the stains on your teeth.

Implants

Implants, Dr. David, Bolton, MA DentistIt’s crucial to replace missing teeth to prevent the rest of your teeth from shifting. When your teeth move it can interfere with the alignment of your teeth causing an unstable bite and discomfort when chewing. Missing teeth even affect the shape of your face and may cause you to look older. Implants can offer a permanent solution to missing teeth if properly cared for.

Implants consist of two parts: the first part is the titanium body that takes the place of the missing root, and the second part is the porcelain crown that is cemented on top of the implant to look like a natural tooth. With periodontal treatment, your replacement tooth will look completely natural.

Implants can also supplement patients with partial removable dentures for a more natural looking smile. Implants can be used to anchor dentures, especially the lower dentures that tend to shift when a person is talking or chewing.

If you are interested in implants, or have questions, please contact our office or schedule an appointment.

Crowns

Crowns, Dr. David, Bolton, MA DentistCrowns provide both a cosmetic restoration and can improve a tooth’s strength or shape. Crowns are typically used for teeth that are broken, worn, or partially destroyed by tooth decay.

Crowns substitute for your tooth’s outer surface and once “cemented” in place fully cover the portion of your tooth above the gum line. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, or both. In this office we use Porcelain crowns. Patients tend to prefer porcelain because it mimics the translucent appearance of real teeth and are very strong.

Partial crowns, called onlays, are needed when a tooth is not strong enough to support a filling. Crowns differ from fillings because the restorative material is not formed directly in the patient’s mouth, but in a separate process by our CEREC machine.

Crowns are designed carefully to suit your bite and jaw movements for maximum comfort. When placed in the mouth, the crown can be sculpted again to ensure your bite and jaw movements function normally as planned.

If you have questions or would like to come in for a consultation, please contact our office or schedule an appointment.

Bridges

Bridges, Dr. David, Bolton, MA DentistMuch like implants, bridges are artificial teeth to replace one or more missing teeth. Instead of replacing the tooth’s root with a metal implant in the gums, bridges are bonded to the surrounding teeth to literally bridge the gap.

It has the same positive effects of preventing other teeth from shifting, maintaining the shape of your face, and alleviating stress on your bite. Your bridge will be made from porcelain,  and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support.

The success of any bridge depends on its foundation — the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is attached. Therefore, it’s essential to keep your surrounding teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong.

If you are interested or have questions, please contact our office or schedule an appointment.

Bonding

Bonding, Dr. David, Bolton, MA DentistBonding is a subtle repair that involves placing a white filling into a tooth to repair slight chips, discoloration or crookedness. The filling is available in a variety of shades to blend in ideally with your other teeth.

Tooth bonding is also more natural looking alternative to silver amalgam fillings. Many patients prefer bonded fillings for the subtle white color. Bonding fillings can be used on front and back teeth depending on the location and extent of tooth decay.

Bonding tends to be the least expensive of all cosmetic treatments and usually takes just one visit. However, bonding can also be less permanent because it’s vulnerable to stains and breaks. In that case, you would need to contact Dr. David to have your repairs redone. Luckily it can usually be patched up easily in single follow up visit.

If you have questions or would like to come in for new or repaired bondings, please contact our office or schedule an appointment.

Occlusal Disease

Occulusal Disease, Dr. David, Bolton, MA DentistOcclusal disease is caused by an improper alignment between the teeth of the upper and lower dental arches, also called malocclusion. If left untreated, occlusal disease can damage your teeth, the supporting bones and gums around your teeth, temporomandibular joints, and the jaw muscles used for chewing. It is important to recognize when accelerated tooth wear goes beyond natural aging and use to cause pain and discomfort.

Signs and Symptoms of Occlusal Disease

  • Enamel wear
  • Tooth cracking or breakage
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Gum recession
  • Loss of bone support
  • Muscle pain
  • TMJ symptoms

Our goal is to preserve the oral health of our patients, as well as to anticipate the long-term results of restorative treatment. Treating occlusal disease can lead to improved oral health and successful restoration. 

Contact our office or schedule an appointment if you’d like to learn more.

CEREC®

We are your local CEREC® dentist for single-visit tooth restorations. Why go to the dentist a second time if you don’t have to?

CEREC® is a technology for restoring damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to the doctor’s office. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful, all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free, and the high-grade ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.

The CEREC® Process

During your appointment, you and your doctor will discuss the details of the procedure and your doctor will answer any questions you may have. Your doctor will then apply a thin layer of reflective powder onto your tooth and will use a special 3D imaging camera to take a photo of your tooth. Using CEREC’s proprietary software, your restoration will be designed according to your tooth’s appropriate form and function. Then, CEREC® will use diamond burs to create your restoration out of a piece of ceramic. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.
