Rocky Hill, CT cosmetic dentist, Thaddeus S. Michalski, focuses on the oral health and well-being of each of his patients. When preventive, restorative and cosmetic dental services blend to achieve a perfectly healthy and good-looking smile, makeover goals are fully met and Dr. Michalski couldn’t be more pleased. In fact, his extensive training and experience all aim for great smiles that last a lifetime.

Are you ready for your  Rock Hill, CT smile makeover?

You can be if you visit Dr. Thaddeus S. Michalski and his talented staff.  Dr. MIchalski possesses  the finest technical skill and artistry in the field of dentistry. His college, dental school and continuing education background reinforce his understanding that a smile makeover starts with healthy teeth and gums. So, when an individual seeks his help in changing how his or her smile looks, Dr. MIchalski begins with the basics.

Dr. MIchalski performs a routine oral exam on each patient who comes through his doors. The check-up includes:

  • digital x-rays and other imaging as warranted
  • visual inspection of the mouth to check for cavities, bite and alignment, gum disease and oral cancer
  • periodontal probing to assess gum health

Dr. Michalski writes a treatment plan to include necessary procedures to bring the mouth to complete health. That being done, he and the patient discuss aesthetic goals for a  renewed, confident smile.

A healthy smile can look as good as it feels

Your summer smile makeover may involve several cosmetic dental services, depending on the aesthetic goals you and your Rocky Hill cosmetic dentist wish to achieve. Services include the finest materials, excellent craftsmanship and precision aesthetics. Art and science combine for the final product–your new smile!

Porcelain veneers are super-thin, tooth-shaped porcelain covers. They mask tooth imperfections such as dark discolorations, cracks, odd contours and chips Utilizing conventional veneers which require etching of the tooth surface or “no-prep” Lumineers, Dr. Michalski customizes an even, white smile that lasts for years with good hygiene and dental care.

Often combined with veneers, at-home teeth whitening safely brightens dingy teeth to a dazzling 8 shades whiter. Applied with custom-made trays, professional grade whitening gels power out stains over the course of 2 weeks in the privacy of the patient’s home.

In addition, Dr. Michalski changes the look of one or more teeth with composite resin bonding. This simple, quick improvement smoothes imperfections such as chips, gaps and crowding for a look that’s natural–only better. Dr. MIchalsky often combines bonding with gum recontouring, a quick, safe treatment which removes excess gum tissue to expose more healthy enamel.

Invisalign clear braces correct bite and alignment issues using invisible custom aligners designed to move teeth into better positions. Taking 9 to 15 months to complete, an Invisalign smile avoids the hygiene and aesthetic issues of traditional orthodontic treatment while making crooked teeth over into straight, stunning smiles. Start Invisalign now in the summer, and be ready for that graduation or wedding next year!

Does a summer smile makeover in Rock Hill sound right to you?

Straighten Your Teeth without Braces: Invisalign in Rocky Hill, CT

May 10, 2015

487780771If your teeth are crooked, crowded, oddly spaced, or otherwise improperly aligned, you understand what an impact the status of your smile can have on your daily life. For adults and teens seeking orthodontic treatment, the thought of spending years in traditional metal braces simply isn’t an appealing option. At the Rocky Hill, CT dental office of Dr. Thaddeus S. Michalski, individuals looking for an alternative to metal braces are invited to explore the possibilities afforded by Invisalign.

Benefits of Invisalign Clear Aligners

The most frequently cited advantage of Invisalign over regular braces is their appearance. The clear acrylic trays are virtually invisible when you smile, allowing you to show off your teeth even as they are gradually shifted into their proper positions. This is an especially attractive feature for polished professionals and image-conscious teens seeking a less conspicuous solution to crooked teeth. Invisalign is also capable of correcting open bites, crossbite, underbite, overbite, and gaps between teeth.

Aside from their obvious aesthetic appeal, Invisalign clear aligners are also exceptionally comfortable as compared to conventional braces. There are no metal wires or brackets to irritate the inner lining of the cheeks and lips, only smooth plastic that is custom-formed to the shape of your teeth. In addition, Invisalign trays are easily removed for eating and home hygiene. Dr. Michalski’s patients love the versatility and freedom of Invisalign as much as they do their clear composition.

Schedule Your Cosmetic Dentistry Consultation

Your journey toward straighter teeth and a more confident, attractive smile begins with a consultation at our Rocky Hill, CT dental office. Contact us today to schedule yours, and see what a difference Invisalign can make in your appearance, your oral health, and your life. We sincerely look forward to providing you with exceptional dental care in an environment that feels like home. Our family-friendly dental office warmly welcomes patients from Rocky Hill, Wethersfield, Berlin, Hartford, Newington, Cromwell, and more.

The Picture-Perfect Smile You Deserve with Porcelain Veneers in Rocky Hill, CT

April 10, 2015

492500957When you smile, do you feel confident in your appearance? Perhaps your teeth are cracked, crooked, or chipped, and you prefer to smile with your lips closed in photographs. If so, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans feel self-conscious about their teeth, choosing to hide their smiles rather than share them with the world. At the office of Thomas S. Michalski, DMD, men and women from Rocky Hill, CT are invited to explore their cosmetic dentistry options, including porcelain veneers.

Transforming Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

Porcelain veneers are one of the most commonly utilized cosmetic dentistry treatments for patients seeking a completely revitalized smile. This is due, in large part, to their versatility and lifelike quality. Crafted of high-grade dental porcelain, veneers are made to look and feel like natural teeth. In fact, the tooth-colored porcelain used to create veneers even reflects light in the same way that tooth enamel does, ensuring a completely natural-looking and luminous smile.

Porcelain veneers are capable of correcting a wide variety of aesthetic flaws in as few as two visits to our Rocky Hill, CT cosmetic dentistry office. These include:

  • Deep staining that does not respond well to teeth whitening efforts
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Unevenly spaced teeth or crowding
  • Teeth that appear too small or misshapen
  • Cracks, chips, and fractures

When bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth, porcelain veneers give your smile an instant makeover. You’ll love the improved sense of confidence that comes with the ability to smile openly and express yourself freely. A consultation with Dr. Michalski will help determine which cosmetic dentistry solution is ideal for you.

Tooth-Colored Fillings for a Naturally Beautiful Smile with Dr. Michalski

January 6, 2015

101475871For nearly 100 years, dental cavities were filled with an amalgam of metals, including silver, copper, tin, and mercury. While these amalgam fillings were effective at keeping further decay at bay, pioneers in the dental field felt that the formula could stand to improve. Today, we use composite resin to create tooth-colored fillings instead of unsightly metal amalgam fillings. With Dr. Thaddeus S. Michalski as your trusted partner, you can achieve lasting oral health in a way that still looks and feels completely natural.

Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings vs. Amalgams

No one likes a mouth full of dark metal fillings; it’s a well-known fact that white, luminous teeth are the hallmarks of a healthy, attractive smile. If your smile falls victim to dental caries (cavities), you shouldn’t have to endure the appearance of shiny metal amalgams just to regain your oral health. With composite resin tooth-colored fillings, you can enjoy a healthy smile that looks beautiful and confident without any of the drawbacks of amalgam fillings.

The benefits of tooth-colored fillings go beyond the cosmetic. In fact, composite resin fillings are actually considered better for your teeth in general. This is because their placement requires less of your natural tooth to be removed in preparation. The resin actually forms a tighter seal with your enamel as well, preventing further decay following your filling procedure. In addition, tooth-colored fillings will not adversely react to changes in temperature like amalgams do, so you can rest assured in the knowledge that your restoration will remain intact for years to come without damaging your teeth.

A Natural Approach You Can Trust

At the office of Dr. Thaddeus S. Michalski in Rocky Hill, CT, we believe that dentistry should align with nature as often as possible. That is why we take a genuinely “green” approach to our work, only offering treatments that utilize non-toxic materials like composite resin for dental fillings. If you’d like to learn more about the benefits of tooth-colored fillings, contact us today. We can help you make an informed decision regarding your oral health, offering valuable advice and insight about a wide range of restorative and cosmetic dentistry solutions. Our state-of-the-art dental practice in Rocky Hill, CT is proud to serve families from throughout the surrounding communities, including those in Wethersfield, Newington, Berlin, Cromwell, Hartford, and beyond.

The Many Ways of Cosmetic Dentistry in Rocky Hill, CT

October 29, 2014

158554263If you are thinking about cosmetic dentistry, then you have a lot to consider. First, what goals do you have for your smile? Do you have any teeth that need repair? And, of course, what is your budget? Thankfully, the office of Dr. Thaddeus S. Michalski in Rocky Hill, CT, offers a number of cosmetic dental procedures to improve your smile.

Teeth Whitening

If you are simply looking to brighten and rejuvenate your smile and your overall appearance, then teeth whitening may be all you need. Dr. Michalski offers a convenient at-home teeth whitening system that can make your smile up to eight shades brighter. We’ll take impressions of your teeth in order to fabricate custom trays to hold the professional strength whitening gel against your teeth. Just wear the trays and gel for the amount of time Dr. Michalski specifies, and you’ll see whiter teeth in no time.

Cosmetic Bonding

For a tooth with a slight chip or another minor imperfection, Dr. Michalski may recommend cosmetic bonding. In one appointment, he will apply a tooth-colored composite resin to the tooth and then use a special light to rapidly harden the bond. Once hardened, the doctor will sculpt and polish the restoration.

Porcelain Veneers

For a smile with more complex imperfections—severely stained or discolored teeth, slightly crooked teeth, unevenly spaced teeth or teeth that are broken—there are porcelain veneers. These cosmetic dental wonders can restore a smile in just two visits to the dentist. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin layers of dental porcelain that are bonded to the front of teeth. Dr. Michalski will design your veneers based on precise measurements of your teeth and the goals you have in mind for your smile.

Call the Office of Dr. Michalski Today

These are only some of the options you can select from the world of cosmetic dentistry with Dr. Michalski. Other cosmetic services our office offers include Lumineers®, Invisalign® Orthodontics and gum recontouring.

Teeth Whitening Just for You

The at-home teeth whitening kits that Dr. Michalski offers can make your smile up to eight shades brighter. When you visit the office for teeth whitening, Dr. Michalski will take an impression of your teeth. These impressions are then used to create custom-fitted trays. The trays provide a snug hold for the professional-strength teeth whitening gel that Dr. Michalski will give you. This way, the gel remains flush against your teeth and more of the gel can penetrate the tooth’s enamel to remove stains caused by food and drink, tobacco and aging.

Your Role in Teeth Whitening

To whiten your teeth, all you have to do is follow a few simple instructions. After a personal consultation with Dr. Michalski to determine your goals, you’ll receive your trays, professional whitening gel and directions for how and when to use your at-home teeth whitening kit. Wear the teeth-whitening trays at your convenience for the amount of time Dr. Michalski specifies. With take-home teeth-whitening, you have more control over the degree of whiteness achieved. Plus, you can wear the trays in the future if you think you need a quick touch-up.

For Convenience and an Improved Smile, Choose Porcelain Veneers in Rocky Hill, CT

Sometimes, a small change can make a big difference. That’s the goal with porcelain veneers. Veneers are a thin layer of tooth-colored porcelain or composite that is placed on the surface of the tooth to correct a minor cosmetic flaw. If you think porcelain veneers may be what your smile needs, the office of Dr. Thadeus S. Michalski in Rocky Hill, CT, is ready to help you achieve your goal.

Porcelain Veneers Solve a Host of Cosmetic Issues

Whether it is the look of one tooth that is bothering you or several of your front teeth, porcelain veneers can often be the answer. Some of the problems that porcelain veneers can solve include:

  • ·Worn Enamel—Enamel is a tooth’s translucent outer coating. Over time, enamel may discolor. This may occur because of natural causes, such as aging, or from what we eat and drink, such as tea, coffee, soft drinks and specific medications.
  • ·Wear and Tear—Teeth naturally succumb to wear and tear through the aging process. Thus, with age, teeth are more likely to have chips or cracks.
  • ·Genetics—Some people have teeth with wider spacing, and with age these spaces may become more pronounced.
  • ·Uneven Teeth—Sometimes due to age, sometimes due to teeth grinding, uneven teeth can be a noticeable flaw in your smile.

How Are Porcelain Veneers Made?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of high-quality, semi-translucent dental porcelain that are bonded to the tooth surface. Dr. Michalski will carefully analyze your unique situation and design veneers that will create a beautiful and natural smile. Porcelain veneers with Dr. Michalski usually require only two appointments. And with proper maintenance, veneers are made to last for 10 years or longer.

Straighten Your Smile Seamlessly with Invisalign

August 29, 2014

177000598If you have been wanting to straighten your smile, you may have been turned away because of the thought of having a mouth full of metal. Though a perfectly aligned smile is something that many people want, living life with uncomfortable wires and brackets can be enough to have someone simply settle for the smile they were given. When you feel confident about your smile, it can drastically improve your wellbeing, and if you are not secure in the way you look, the effects can be damaging on the way you feel about yourself as well as the way you interact with the people around you. Though you may feel as though there is nothing you can do to achieve the smile of your dreams without compromising the way you look, Dr. Thaddeus S. Michalski is able to deliver amazing results to his patients by offering Invisalign!

Invisalign is a revolutionary piece of dental technology, as it is able to gently straighten your smile using a series of clear, plastic aligners. Many patients opt for Invisalign versus traditional braces because the aligners sit nearly invisibly on your smile, giving you the orthodontic treatment you deserve without jeopardizing your overall appearance. Each aligner is symbolic of a different stage of your treatment, so no aligner is identical to the next. By having your aligners custom made, this ensures amazing results as well as a completely personalized treatment plan. Because each person is different and has different needs, their treatment should be able to reflect that. All you do is wear each aligner for a specific amount of time, and when you are ready to begin the next phase, simply remove the aligner you are wearing and apply the next one in the set!

One of the reasons why Invisalign has major advantages over traditional braces is because you have complete dietary freedom while receiving your treatment. With traditional braces, there are certain things you cannot eat, as the wires and brackets would get in the way. With Invisalign, you are able to eat and drink whatever you want, letting you fully enjoy your treatment. Also, you are able to have better oral health with Invisalign than you would with traditional braces. Whenever you need to floss, eat, brush, or drink, simply remove and reapply the aligner when needed! If you would like Dr. Michalski’s help straightening your smile using Invisalign, contact our office today.

Contact our office in Rocky Hill, CT today to speak to our caring, friendly staff and schedule your appointment. We look forward to showing you what a difference our patient-centric approach and gentle touch can make for you. Our family-friendly office proudly welcomes patients from throughout the surrounding areas, including Cromwell, Berlin, Wethersfield, Newington, Hartford, and more.

Reveal A Fuller Smile with Gum Recontouring

August 15, 2014

186932212It is proven that when you feel confident about your smile, your overall sense of self and wellbeing are positive as well. Because many people consider a smile a first impression, many people go through great lengths to make sure their smiles are in the best condition they can be. Though there are many reasons why someone may be insecure about their smiles, one reason could be because they have a “gummy” smile. If you have excessive gum tissue, you may feel as though your smile is limited. Though you may dream of a full, beautiful smile, you may not know which avenues to take in order to accomplish that. Fortunately, Dr. Thaddeus S. Michalski is able to give you the smile of your dreams by offering gum recontouring to his patients.

The wonderful thing about gum recontouring is that it is a minimally invasive procedure that can completely change your smile in a short amount of time. The first step is making an appointment with Dr. Michalski so he can get a better look at your smile. He will be able to speak with you about your smile goals, and how you want your smile to look at the end of the procedure. We will be able to perform your gum recontouring via a soft tissue laser or through traditional surgery, depending on your needs.

On the day of your procedure, Dr. Michalski will mark your gums so he will know just how much to remove. We will make sure that the amount of soft tissue he is removing is conducive to your wants, and he will get to work! We will be able to give you some anesthesia or sedation, ensuring your comfort throughout the entire procedure. Dr. Michalski will remove the excess tissue, revealing your full, flawless smile! If you would like Dr. Michalski’s help revolutionizing your smile with gum recontouring, contact our office today!
