Whitening Is Safe And Easy At The Dentist’s Office

Welcome back to our dentistry blog!

At Gentle Dental Care, we are a comprehensive family dental practice, conveniently located on East Street in Plainville, CT.

In terms of dental solutions, we offer preventative cleanings and exams, fillings, gum disease treatment, and much more.

You’ll be happy to know that we offer sedation options for all of our procedures to maximize your comfort and minimize your anxiety level.

There’s a reason we call ourselves Gentle Dental Care!

Because so many of our Plainville patients are concerned about the fading color of their teeth, we also provide office-guided teeth whitening solutions.

The Need Is There

The older you get, you will find that your smile seems to darken with age.

Daily habits can do some damage too.

Foods and beverages can leave layers of stains that will be hard not to notice.

In Plainville, CT, we love our morning coffee.

Some of us even enjoy a soda pop or iced tea with lunch.

Others prefer a glass of red wine with dinner, followed by some chocolate, just to cleanse the palate, of course.

If any of that sounds like you, then you are not alone.

What’s more, you could probably benefit from one of our whitening solutions.

Over-The-Counter Kits Will Drive You Out Of Your Mind

Over-the-counter whitening products are everywhere but they will get you nowhere.

Most OTC kits never produce any significant results.

It could be because they expect you to manage the process.

And then they leave you with inadequate tools to do so.

We’re primarily talking about the problematic one-size-fits-all trays.

The problem should be obvious.

These trays can’t possibly fit your unique mouth very well, if at all.

This can lead to real damage for your gums if the whitening solution doesn’t stay where it is supposed to, and it most certainly won’t with these ill-fitting trays.

Think about it, the gel is meant to bleach teeth, not cover your soft tissues.

Gentle Dental Care Has Effective Options For You

For your safety and convenience, Gentle Dental Care offers both in-office and take-home professional teeth whitening options.

If you opt for teeth whitening at our office, you can look forward to visible results in just one visit.

And your whitening appointment should last no longer than two hours.

Many of our patients would rather receive their whitening treatment at home, under our direction.

If that is your preference, we have professional-strength whitening kits that will work to brighten your teeth over a short period time.

Brighten Things Up Today

It goes without saying that not everyone is a great candidate for teeth whitening.

The best candidates for whitening or bleaching have fairly healthy teeth and gums, without fillings or restorations (which do not respond to whitening).

Regardless, our Plainville, CT dental team will work with you to see if whitening can give you the kind of results you are looking for.
