Teeth whitening is one of the most frequently requested procedures in cosmetic dentistry. This is because it is quick, effective, and relatively inexpensive. In Amherst, NY, Creekside Dentistry offers convenient options for restoring your natural, bright smile. Choose from in-office treatment, at-home treatment, or a combination of the two. We only use carefully selected professional tooth whitening brands. They yield optimal results with minimal sensitivity to teeth and gums.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening is an excellent option for patients who want to see immediate and powerful results. Patients will typically see results in about an hour. This in-office treatment creates a good foundation for at-home touch-ups. In addition, in-office teeth whitening is significant for special occasions such as weddings, graduations, or job interviews.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
At-home teeth whitening is very convenient for patients. This type of treatment includes a custom-fit professional whitening tray. The customized appliance assures that the whitening gel is administered evenly and properly. It also combats enamel or gum sensitivity. At-home teeth whitening treatment takes place over several weeks. The trays are worn either during the day or overnight for a set time.
