What is teeth whitening?
At Something To Smile About, our dental team understands why the color of your teeth is a major cosmetic concern. Fortunately, we have an experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kevin Boulard, who will provide you with professional strength teeth whitening. While there are dozens of retail store whitening options, we use a product that has shown to be superior to most over-the-counter treatments currently offered. Our whitening services, highly recommended by Dr. Boulard, can whiten your teeth by several shades and may last for much longer than alternative choices. We utilize medical-grade whitening solutions that really do the job, reaching below the surface of the teeth to address deep stains rather than consumer-level options that just touch the surface.

"After delaying dental care for over a year, I found Dr. Boulard and have had two visits with his practice. I could not be more pleased! The staff is friendly and competent and showed deep concern for my needs and well being. After experiencing the intolerance and contempt the medical community at large has for those who cannot safely wear a face mask, I am overjoyed at the treatment and respect I received here. After my dental surgery, I got a follow-up call from Dr. Boulard himself, which I thought was so nice and caring. These folks stand head and shoulders above the rest and I am so grateful to have found them!"- L.P. / Office Visit / Jun 10, 2021
"I’ve been a patient with Dr. Boulard for 14 years. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my teeth! Always makes me feel comfortable and never a painful experience. I love the fact that they have high tech scanners so I never gag, no more gunky impressions. and they have up to date technology, with the option of also getting Invisalign. The rest of the staff is lovely and the office manager, Olga, is amazing! They are so efficient and well mannered. I highly recommend!"- D.S. / Google / May 24, 2021

Who are the best Candidates for teeth whitening?
When debating the advantages and disadvantages of professional versus store-bought whitening options, you should consider what you are really attempting to achieve for your smile. If your smile is just recently starting to yellow, an over-the-counter whitening kit could produce temporary results.
When your teeth have deeper discoloration, you might be a perfect candidate to receive professional-grade teeth whitening at Something To Smile About. If you need home touch-ups, Dr. Boulard may also offer take-home customized trays that can be used in conjunction with our whitening solutions for upkeep.
Dr. Boulard's Teeth Whitening techniques
What you should expect during your teeth whitening appointments is dependent upon the process recommended by Dr. Boulard. Since our practice offers a couple of treatment options for successful and quality teeth whitening, the process chosen for you will be determined after a consultation. In most situations, an in-office teeth whitening session will be performed in less than an hour through the application of a professional strength whitening gel, along with the assistance of a light system that quickly whitens the teeth several colors. We also have at-home kits that are equally efficient but might provide a more subtle result over a few weeks and months. You may need a combination of both to have lasting results.
What to Expect After Teeth Whitening
After teeth whitening, you may experience some sensitivity to hot or cold food, but this should subside within a few days. When the whitening treatment is completed, we usually recommend returning for touch-ups a couple of times annually, along with professional cleanings. Remember that simply because your teeth are whitened does not necessarily mean they are healthy. Routine dental exams are necessary and vital to maintaining your oral health.
