If you’ve been putting off a cosmetic procedure you’ve been wanting, now is the time. September is set aside as Self-Improvement Month, so take advantage of the spirit of the month and seize your opportunity to set yourself up with the smile you’ve always wanted. Cosmetic dentistry comes in a variety of options, so you can get the teeth whitening you’ve been wishing for as part of your regular fall check-up or as a special treat between regular cleanings.

Why Whiten Teeth?

Many patients opt for this procedure over the more expensive and invasive process of installing veneers because of the cost effectiveness and relative permanence of the teeth whitening process. Diet and oral health affect outcomes a lot, so patients who successfully use whitening for permanent gains have to change their diet to avoid overindulgence in foods like coffee and cola that can stain teeth. The process is repeatable, though, so even if the effects fade with time and indulgence, you can easily schedule another appointment to come in and get your teeth re-whitened.

Veneers provide the same opportunity for whitening teeth, but they also work to correct the appearance of minor misalignments, and they do need occasional replacing. If your smile is just the right shape and you only need to brighten it up a bit, teeth whitening is a great option for you!

Cosmetic Dentistry and Oral Health

All cosmetic procedures work best when your oral health is well-maintained, so make sure you are current on cleanings and you’ve followed up with other procedures like fillings before scheduling an appointment for a teeth whitening. It’s easy to coordinate that care with our office, and we can schedule you for multiple reasons if you want to get a cleaning on the same day as your whitening. Just contact Dr. James Lesinski of Complete Health Dentistry of WNY in Amherst, NY during regular business hours and let our office staff know what you need. It’s that easy!
