"Karen did a great job on my teeth! She’s very thorough, answers any questions you have, and she’s always fun to talk with."- L.J. / Google / Mar 29, 2019
"Coming from CT, I had a beautiful smile created from a great dentist in New Haven several years ago. I moved to New Hampshire and looked for the best to take over care. It just so happened that my New Haven dr traveled from CT to VT specifically to have HER OWN smile created by Dr Shanard and highly recommended Dr Shanard. She was absolutely right. Dr Shanard is very meticulous in perfecting your look. She is extremely patient and caring. She and her excellent staff take the time to explain thoroughly procedures, and expectations. I can’t say enough about Contemporary Dental Arts"- L.G. / Google / Mar 27, 2019

"UPDATE TO EARLIER REVIEW:I have now been a patient with Contemporary Dental Arts (Dr. Lauren Shanard) for nearly three months. I am undergoing a massive amount of work - replacements of many old crowns, three new implants, and a redo of 20-year-old veneers - and while the cost is staggering (as it generally is for this type and quality of cosmetic and restoration work), I am confident that I am making a wise investment at the right place. In the past, I was never charged for temporary crowns (that was a substantial expense at this office which I did not expect), but I have also never had such beautiful provisionals, which I appreciated as the lab took a while to create my permanent crowns (and Dr. Shanard sent them back to be redone because they were not quite perfect enough, also much appreciated). Dr. Shanard is superbly skilled with her hands, aesthetically discerning, medically informed, and up-to-date on the newest dental techniques. She will not settle for "okay" and spends extra time to reach her ideal. She maintains a very good network of related specialists (including my equally excellent periodontist and endodontist, with whom cooperative communication has been exemplary). Dr. Shanard‘s entire staff operates with the same high standards, as well as thoughtfulness and respect for their patients. The sophisticated facility is immaculate. I am now about one-third of the way along in my treatment plan, and up to this point, the results have been exceptional - far better than the work I had done by Manhattan dentists during my many years of living in that city. ORIGINAL REVIEW:As a new patient, I was graciously welcomed into Dr. Shanard‘s beautiful dental office. I was neither rushed nor pressured, considerate accommodations were made for my comfort throughout, and all staff were so very kind and professional. Dr. Shanard is thorough, knowledgeable, compassionate and patient. She clearly explained everything to me in both a medical and easily understandable manner. My initial experience has been excellent and has given me hope in my complex case. I look forward to continuing the relationship."- E.S. / Google / Feb 13, 2019

If you want to improve your teeth in the comfort and convenience of your own house, Dr. Shanard may suggest a personalized teeth whitening kit. Your teeth may look dull or have dark and yellow stains that have built up over time. You might have attempted over-the-counter whitening products, but found them uncomfortable, ineffective, or harmful to your teeth. At Contemporary Dental Arts, the strength of the whitening treatment is customized to suit your own needs and aims, therefore it's an excellent option if you have sensitive teeth. A home teeth whitening kit may be used by itself or following a professional whitening procedure to enhance your results.
What to Expect
The home teeth whitening kit will be created by Dr. Shanard with whitening product and mouth trays. Before making your whitening kit, Dr. Shanard will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your enamel and dental health in order to choose the best whitening potency and formulation. For your teeth whitening trays, you may opt to have impressions made of your mouth so custom trays can be made, but it will take additional time to receive them. Meanwhile, we offer professional mouth trays that can be utilized right away. As soon as your kit is prepared, Dr. Shanard will go over the instructions required for every treatment, including how long and how frequently to use the whitening gel.
Your results will depend on the formula of the bleaching gel, your starting tooth color, and how often you apply your whitening kit. Once you achieve your desired color, you can quit using your home treatments. For result maintenance, you need to keep an excellent oral hygiene regimen and implement lifestyle changes, such as avoiding staining foods, drinks, and tobacco products. Additionally, you ought to schedule twice yearly professional cleanings at Contemporary Dental Arts so stains can be polished, and annual dental examinations so Dr. Shanard may check on your general dental health. You should keep your mouth trays clean and in a secure place, so in the event that you want to resume your whitening treatment, you would just have to buy more bleaching gel.
At-home teeth whitening is an aesthetic treatment, so it's typically not covered by dental insurance. During your consultation, our financial coordinator will discuss your price quotes based on your treatment choices, go over payments we take, and provide you with information on where to find medical financing.
