Professional teeth whitening can give you a brighter, whiter, and more confident smile in just 1-3 appointments.
I had a great experience here! The staff are very kind and friendly. The Dentist himself is wonderful. He genuinely cares about how his patients feel and look after having any work done. I recommend Smiles Dental to everyone looking for a dentist.
There’s nothing I dread more than the dentist but Dr. Katib makes the experience stress and pain free! The office is great too.
Friday’s after doing all the testing both at Smile Dental and at his office (Summer Dental Office) in Haverhill. He informed me that he could do it but it would not last because of bone loss and referred me to another specialist. This is what I call a true doctor.

There are many over-the-counter whitening solutions available to today’s consumer. You can choose from whitening toothpastes, mouth rinses, whitening strips, and at-home kits. While all of these products contain a peroxide-based bleaching gel, these gels aren’t formulated as strongly as professional dental whitening systems. This results in a weaker, less effective whitening process. For this reason, you need repeated treatments over many months to achieve your desired results.
The fastest, most effective way to brighten your teeth in just a few convenient treatments is in-office teeth whitening at your local Lawrence dental office. At Smiles Dental Center, we use the powerful Opalescence whitening system to provide lasting results!
Dr. Katib has invested in advanced X-ray technology, HEPA air filtration across the facility, and advanced methodologies for many dental procedures.
Everybody wants a bright, beautiful smile. However, sometimes our teeth can lose their pearly whiteness, becoming stained, dull, or yellow. Your teeth can lose their brightness for a number of reasons, including:
Regularly drinking coffee, tea and red wine can contribute to staining. Intense color pigments called chromogens are found in certain foods and beverages. They can attach to your enamel and cause staining.
The tar and nicotine found in cigarettes and other tobacco products can turn your teeth yellow or brown over time.
Below your bright white enamel is a softer, darker material called dentin. Over time, the outer enamel layer becomes thinner and more of the dentin underneath shows through, making your teeth look dark or dull.
If you’ve been hit in the mouth, your tooth may change color as a result of the injury, becoming brown or gray.
Good at-home care and regular cleanings remove plaque and keep stains from developing on the surface of your teeth. If you don’t practice good oral hygiene and maintain a regular cleaning schedule, your teeth will begin to show it.
Discoloration is an unfortunate side effect of certain classes of drugs, including some antihistamines, antipsychotics. and high blood pressure medications. Chemotherapy can also darken teeth. Young children who are exposed to antibiotics like tetracycline and doxycycline when their teeth are forming may have discoloration of their adult teeth later in life.
Teeth whitening is a simple process that can be completed in an hour or less. Opalescence contains a specially designed bleaching gel that uses oxygen molecules to break down stains from the inside out. The result is a smile that is instantly brighter without the need for LED lights or heat. The whitening gel contains potassium nitrate and fluoride for a more comfortable patient experience and little to no irritation.
Opalescence teeth whitening usually lasts 6-12 months. To maintain your results, be sure to schedule touch-ups with your dentist as needed. It’s also important to practice good oral hygiene and limit tooth-staining habits such as smoking or drinking red wine. This can help you maintain your brightening results and keep your smile looking whiter, longer.
