It may be snowy and cold now, but the weather is changing, and with things starting to heat up in Rocky Hill, CT it’s time to start thinking about all the outdoor activities, fun parties and events that will soon be happening. Spring is also a great time to think about brightening your smile. Teeth whitening in Rocky Hill is a quick and affordable way to make a huge impact on the appearance of your smile.
How Does Whitening Work?
Dr. Thaddeus Michalski offers custom made, take-home trays for patients who want to whiten their teeth. We start by taking impressions and creating trays that are designed specifically for you. The plastic trays fit snugly against your teeth to ensure that the whitening gel doesn’t spread on to your gum tissue.
Our office carries professional strength whitening gel that is available to our patients whenever they need to whiten their teeth. Prior to whitening, you can discuss your goals for your smile and your level of sensitivity with Dr. Michalski to determine which strength of gel is best for your needs.
Professional Whitening vs Over the Counter
It may seem like a better idea to purchase an over the counter whitening system, rather than invest in professional trays, however, the benefits of professional whitening are worth the investment. Professional strength whitening gel that is found in dental offices is actually stronger and more effective than what you can purchase over the counter, it also contains desensitizing agents to make whitening more comfortable. This means less time needed to reach your whitening goals and a more comfortable process.
Over the counter trays are not custom made, so there’s more of a chance of causing damage to your gum tissues with the whitening gel. They’re also designed to whiten mainly your front six teeth. Custom take home trays are convenient because they’re designed to whiten all of your teeth, and they’re always available for you to update your smile whenever you like. You can just pick up some whitening gel from our office and you’ll be ready for the next vacation, wedding or big event.
If you’re considering any cosmetic dental work, you may also want to think about whitening your teeth beforehand. Your porcelain crowns, veneers or composite fillings will all be custom made to match your existing teeth and you want your smile to be at its brightest! Whether you just need a boost, or complete overhaul for your smile, Dr. Michalski can create a plan that will help you reach your goals. Teeth whitening in Rocky Hill is a great place to start, so don’t delay; get your whitening started today! Contact our office to learn more about updating your smile with custom made whitening trays.
