Congratulations! We had record-breaking snow this year, but that has (finally) melted and everyone is ready for summer in Massachusetts. There’s so much to do: a weekend at the Cape, sailing on the Charles River, a Red Sox game, explore Beacon Hill, or a tasty backyard picnic with family and friends. No matter what activity suits you, there are sure to be many reasons to smile. So, now is the time to make sure your smile is looking as beautiful as possible. With teeth whitening, Dr. James P. Kostas and the team at Complete Dental Care in Burlington, MA, will have your teeth looking their absolute best.
If your teeth are yellowed, stained or otherwise discolored, then as the saying goes—join the club. Millions of Americans have less than perfectly white smiles and the reasons are all generally the same:
- Commonly consumed foods and beverages, such as berries and tomatoes or coffee and red wine
- Smoking and chewing tobacco
- Certain medications, such as the antibiotic tetracycline
- Teeth grinding and clenching, which can darken the biting surfaces of your teeth
- Improper oral hygiene
- The aging process
- Tooth injuries
Choices for Teeth Whitening Burlington Loves
Whether you’re in a hurry to have a whiter smile because you have a special occasion coming up soon, or if you’d rather whiten on your own schedule, the cosmetic dentist Burlington depends on has the right teeth whitening option for you. With Opalescence® Teeth Whitening System, you’ll probably only need a single one-hour visit to our office to have a smile that is several shades whiter and brighter. Opalescence tooth whitening gel contains potassium nitrate and fluoride. Potassium nitrate reduces sensitivity, and fluoride helps to strengthen enamel. So, you won’t only be enhancing your smile when you whiten with Opalescence, you’ll be improving the health of your teeth at the same time.
If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort and privacy of home, then Burlington dentist Dr. Kostas can give you a teeth-whitening kit. Simply fill the custom-fitted mouth trays with the professional grade whitening gel that we supply, and you’ll have dazzling new smile in about two weeks.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help You?
Do you ever look at your teeth in photos or in the mirror and wish that they were whiter? If so, you certainly aren’t alone. Millions of Americans are dissatisfied with the shade of their teeth and the way it affects their self-confidence. Whether it’s red wine, tea, tobacco, or your morning cup of coffee, surface stains add up over time and cause your smile to look less than luminous. Whitening toothpastes and over-the-counter products claim to brighten enamel, but achieving truly noticeable results requires a professional grade whitening formula. At Complete Dental Care, we personalize our teeth whitening treatments to create dazzling smiles both in our office and with custom at-home whitening kits. You’ll love how quickly and easily we can lift years of deep stains from your teeth, allowing you to show off a superstar smile not only in 2015, but for years to come!
Are you looking for a way to completely transform the appearance of your smile without extensive dental work? Porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution for you. These wafer-thin shells of dental porcelain are meticulously crafted to look and feel completely natural, correcting a wide variety of common aesthetic flaws. Chips, gaps, cracks, misalignment, and deep stains become a thing of the past in as few as two visits to our office. We also offer CEREC same day crowns, dental implants, full mouth reconstruction, and invisible braces with Six Month Smiles. Whatever your smile needs to look its absolute best, you’ll find it here at Complete Dental Care, your local Burlington, MA dentist.

If you feel discouraged by stains on your teeth, you should know you’re not alone. Everyone struggles with staining to one degree or another. That’s because many stains are caused by commonly consumed foods or drinks. Coffee, tea, red wine, soda, juice, and other beverages are often at fault. But there are other causes, too, like tobacco use, certain medications, and even aging. All of which makes teeth whitening one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services I offer.
Specifically, I offer two types of teeth whitening: take-home whitening and Zoom! in-office whitening.
With Zoom! my patients can come away from an appointment at my Burlington office with a bright, dazzling smile in just a single appointment. This is a great treatment option for patients who need a whiter smile in a hurry.
If you don’t need immediate results, take-home whitening can produce the same kind of look over a period of time, and in the comfort of your own home. With specially-made whitening trays and professional-strength whitening gel, whitening at home is easy and only takes about 30 minutes a day.
Do you have questions about teeth whitening? Call my office today to schedule an appointment. During your visit, I can explain all your options and recommend the solution that works better for your own situation.
I’m happy to offer two great teeth whitening solutions to patients from Burlington, Bedford, Billerica and Woburn.
