"Hi!! I’m looking to speak with a dentist office from Vermont. I’m doing a little research for a project and would like to ask you a few questions. If we have a good fit, We might be able to work together and get new customers for your business. If you agree, we could set up a quick 5-10 minutes interview through Skype or Zoom. I look forward to hear from you soon!! Alfonso Franco"- A.A. / Facebook / Feb 12, 2020

"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 / Oct 03, 2019
You may be a candidate for cosmetic teeth whitening if your teeth are healthy but have yellow discoloration. Your teeth could be dull from aging, staining drinks and foods, tobacco usage, or other factors. KöR whitening systems have been uniquely designed to treat patients who have specific concerns and internal teeth stains that other home and professional whitening products can't treat. KöR may be a good choice if you have fluorosis (stripes or lines on the teeth from excessive fluoride when the teeth were growing), discoloration or stains from aging (dark geriatric staining), and discoloration caused by taking a tetracycline medicine when you were young. In your initial consultation, Dr. Shanard will evaluate the health of your teeth and help you create your custom teeth whitening program.
What To Expect
A teeth whitening treatment program can include in-office and/or home treatments based upon your situation and cosmetic goals. Dr. Shanard will discuss your unique treatment program and schedule your appointments or make your home whitening kit. For a home whitening kit, Dr. Shanard will take impressions of your mouth and also have custom trays made. Prior to office procedures, you'll receive a cleaning. This eliminates tartar and plaque accumulation to get better outcomes.
Home Teeth Whitening
You can attain your whitening goals with the following KöR home whitening choices:
- KöR-Day is used for a brief time period, making it perfect for patients who have sensitive teeth. The 9% hydrogen peroxide formula may be worn 1 – 2 times a day for about two weeks.
- KöR-Night is used overnight for fast improvements. The 16% carbamide peroxide formula should be applied each night for about two weeks.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
For difficult cases or for faster improvements, there are several in-office KöR whitening treatments:
- KöR MAX combines one in-office procedure of 34% tri-barrel hydremide peroxide gel with two weeks of KöR-Night. This is ideal for patients that do not have any particular requirements and want fast improvements.
- KöR ULTRA is good at treating teeth discolored by dark geriatric staining of fluorosis. It begins with an in-office conditioning therapy of 13% hydremide peroxide gel, then 3 – 4 weeks of KöR-Night. Next, one in-office procedure with 34% hydremide peroxide gel is done.
- KöR ULTRA-T is one of the few remedies that can whiten teeth discolored by tetracycline. To begin, an in-office conditioning procedure with 13% hydremide peroxide gel is done. Afterward, KöR-Night is used in the home for 6 – 8 weeks. Finally, the procedure is finished with an in-office procedure of 34% hydremide peroxide gel.
Once you've finished your teeth whitening program and reached your goal, you might want a home treatment kit to use when needed to revive your teeth. To maintain your results, you should have a great home oral hygiene routine with regular flossing and brushing. You should also schedule bi-annual cleanings at Contemporary Dental Arts to eliminate plaque and polish away stains. You may also consider skipping or restricting staining foods and beverages, such as berries, coffee, red wine, and using tobacco.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure so it's usually not covered through dental insurance. In your initial consultation with Dr. Shanard, she will explain the expenses of every method of teeth whitening so your treatment plan will meet your goals and budget. Contemporary Dental Arts takes many forms of payment, and we also will help you find low-interest medical financing through CareCredit® and/or Lending Club®.
