Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening

Depew Dentist Near Buffalo, Cheektowaga, Lancaster & Orchard Park

Over-the-counter teeth whitening products have become increasingly popular in recent years, and they are often marketed as a fast and cost-effective way to brighten your smile. But the teeth whitening kits available at retail don’t provide the immediate, long-lasting results of professional teeth whitening with an experienced cosmetic dentist.

If you’re unhappy with the discolored appearance of your smile, Dr. Larry Evola can help you determine if teeth whitening can restore your smile. Please call Forestream Dental at 716-656-8686 to schedule your appointment; we welcome patients from the greater Buffalo, Lancaster, Orchard Park and Depew, New York, areas.

Over-the-counter teeth whiteners require weeks to months of use to achieve noticeable results, and their long-term use may progressively damage your teeth enamel. Retail teeth whitening kits are also designed with a one-size-fits-all mentality that can produce spotty, unappealing results.

At Forestream Dental, Dr. Evola uses the Opalescence teeth whitening system. Opalescence can provide a visibly brighter smile in a single treatment without the use of heat lamps or ultraviolet rays.

A skilled cosmetic dentist, Dr. Evola personally administers teeth whitening treatment to ensure the even dispersal of the whitening agent for a seamless smile. Opalescence is rare among teeth whiteners in that it contains potassium nitrate and fluoride, which can help strengthen your enamel and decrease teeth sensitivity.

Opalescence is also available in take-home kits, which feature custom-fit trays to uniformly disperse the whitening agent.
