Achieve a Brighter, More Attractive Smile with Teeth Whitening
A healthy, bright smile make can make a great first impression. Arguably the simplest and most affordable way to enhance your smile is with professional teeth whitening. Dr. Donald Tucker can either perform a quick, comfortable teeth whitening session at his Buffalo, NY, office, or provide you with a convenient at-home kit. Whichever approach you choose, you can quickly enjoy a noticeably brighter, more attractive smile.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Patients who want to look their best in no time at all can benefit from our in-office teeth whitening system that can brighten your teeth by multiple shades in a single hour-long session. First, your gums will be protected by placing a rubber dam that isolates your teeth from your soft tissues. A bleaching gel consisting of hydrogen peroxide will then be applied to the surfaces of your teeth. Next, a specialized dental lamp is used to activate the bleaching agents in the gel. This process penetrates deep within tooth enamel to lighten or entirely eliminate stains and discoloration. Typically patients require three 15-minute cycles to achieve their desired level of brightness. Once your session is complete, you can leave our office with a stunning smile.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening Kits
Patients who would prefer to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home may opt instead for our high-quality take-home teeth whitening kits. Although the same dazzling results can be achieved with the take-home kit, it will take a longer period of time than the in-office time required. Take-home kits may be the right choice for patients with tooth-sensitivity since there is a lower concentration of hydrogen peroxide.
Take-home kits allow patients to bleach their teeth in the privacy and comfort of their own homes. Patients simply need to wear the dental trays containing the whitening gel daily for a prescribed amount of time for approximately one to three weeks.
With either professional in-office whitening or take-home kits, patients can enjoy whiter teeth that enhance their smile and take years off their appearance.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Many of our patients regularly consume drinks like coffee or tea that can stain or discolor the teeth over time. Other patients may find that their teeth take on a yellowish or grayish tint due to smoking or taking certain medications.
Regardless of the reasons for stained teeth, patients can overcome this cosmetic drawback, and in doing so, take years off their appearance with professional teeth whitening. Additionally, whiter teeth can increase your self-image, making it more likely that you can express yourself and smile with confidence.
Teeth whitening is a fantastic standalone cosmetic dental procedure. It can also be combined with other cosmetic dental treatments, like porcelain veneers or dental crowns, or as a final touch on a smile makeover plan that results in a stunning smile.
