A key part of having a healthy looking smile is getting to the right shade. Most people prefer an eggshell or seashell white, though over time the color sometimes fades to a dull yellow or brown. At Rochester Dental, we offer teeth whitening options to her patients who want that eggshell white look back. 
We have a lot of patients visit our office when they don’t feel very confident or happy about their teeth. When patients are too shy to smile, it can affect their self-confidence in a number of ways. In many cases, the solution is as simple as a whitening treatment to brighten the teeth by a few shades.
Modern tooth whitening solutions are available everywhere, from the grocery store to the pharmacy. But if a patient wants the very best care in a timely fashion, he/she has to go to a dentist’s office.

There are two common options: a take-home whitening kit or in-office whitening

A take-home kit has to be prescribed by a dentist and takes a few weeks to achieve the desired level of whitening. An in-office teeth whitening treatment is a one-time procedure that can have long-lasting results. Dr. Halsey and Dr. Carmody will apply a high-grade whitening gel to the teeth and activates it with a unique dental light. They each take special care to administer the treatment so that the gums are protected and the patient is as comfortable as possible. The appointment is usually quick.
When they need service from a qualified cosmetic dentist, Troy residents come to Rochester Dental. Patients can request an appointment with our office online or by calling (248) 528-0700 to schedule a time to come in for whitening.
