Even the most rigorous hygiene regimes can't fully preserve the pristine sheen of teeth. Over the years, tea, coffee, red wine and other staining agents leave their telltale signature on our smiles - yellowing, stains and discolouration.
When these take hold, our leading whitening treatments could be just the thing to give your teeth back their lustre and sheen.
With home and in-clinic options available, there's no more comfortable or more convenient way to give your smile a boost.
We also offer internal whitening - a gentle bleaching process to restore teeth darkened by root canal treatment.
When it comes to teeth whitening, Philips Zoom! is the industry leader - and it’s no wonder. This safe and effective light-activated whitener is guaranteed to lighten teeth by up to eight shades in just 45 minutes.
The science behind Zoom! is simple. We’ll apply a rubber seal around the teeth to protect gums before applying the whitening agent - a gentle bleaching gel activated under Philips’ patented light. The light acts as a catalyst for the whitening process to give incredible results in under an hour.
When you don’t have the time to spare for in-clinic whitening, why not take home one of our home bleaching kits. Each contains a custom-made tray that fits precisely over your teeth, as well as a supply of bleaching gel. We’ll also give you full instructions on how to make the most out of your kit. The tray should be worn for a few hours every day for amazing results over a few weeks.
Don't confuse our home whitening with over-the-counter systems. Our custom trays are designed for an accurate fit, and the whitening agent contains a much higher concentration of bleach.
For the most dramatic results, we can use a combination of both home and in-clinic whitening. Typically, you’ll undergo whitening at home for a week or two before finishing off with a single hour-long treatment in our Wirral clinic.
Amazing results achieved by the combination of in-clinic and at-home treatments is why we often refer to the process as power whitening.
Sometimes the discolouration of teeth isn’t caused by food and drink but by problems with the root or nerve. Trauma or treatments like root canal surgery can cause teeth to darken over time. We call these intrinsic stains and - fortunately - there is a simple remedy.
We can only carry out internal whitening on teeth that have undergone successful root canal treatment and the inner blood vessels and nerves replaced with a composite filling.
To start the process, we'll begin by drilling a tiny hole in the tooth to put the bleaching product into. (For front teeth, we can target the rear side where the hole isn't on show.) The hole is then sealed with a temporary filling, leaving the bleach inside the tooth. The procedure is completely painless because the tooth has no nerve inside.
At a second appointment, we'll remove the temporary filling to drain the bleach and replace it with a permanent one that matches your teeth. Occasionally, we may need to repeat the process or supplement with traditional whitening techniques to achieve the perfect shade.
Clive’s front teeth made him feel embarrassed to smile. When he approached us to do something about it on a limited budget, we began by using digital smile design to show Clive how his new smile would look. He loved the results and we went ahead with producing a temporary prototype to make sure Clive was 100% happy. We repaired Clive’s back teeth and opened his bite to make way for his new composites. What a result!
David wanted us to restore some previous orthodontic work received elsewhere. He also had misshapen and missing teeth. We started David’s treatment with fixed braces before replacing the missing teeth with implants and restoring those which were broken. David’s orthodontic treatment was complex and lengthy - but he eventually got just the result he wanted.
Ian transformed my smile 15 years ago and my teeth look as fantastic now as they did then. Dr Buckle gave me back my confidence. With the excellent hygiene programme at the practice and regular check ups, I haven’t had a problem in all this time. Thank you Dr Buckle!
Gordon’s teeth were constantly chipping and breaking, and he wanted a budget-friendly solution. Our first job was to find out why Gordon’s teeth were so prone to wear, before finding a solution to restore both form and function using Smile Trial digital smile design technology. We also provided Gordon with a trial restoration to wear to make sure he was over the moon with the final thing.
Mark’s was finding it difficult to eat. He also felt self-conscious about his smile. And to make things even worse, his old crowns were beginning to fail. We used Smile Trial and digital planning to show Mark his new smile before starting treatment with crowns to restore his upper teeth and implants to replace his more decayed lower teeth. Mark loves the results and is now a self-confessed born-again brusher.
Paula wanted a healthy and natural-looking smile that would last, and visited Buckle Advanced Dental care after a recommendation from friends. More than 10 years later, Paula's veneers look just as good as they did on day one. She now attends Buckle Advanced Dental Care every three to six months for regular hygiene appointments to keep them in fantastic condition.
Gareth lost his front teeth in an accident. His remaining teeth were bighted by old fillings and general wear. He wanted to replace the missing teeth and improve the appearance of those remaining. Dr Buckle’s solution was beautiful implanted teeth accompanied by a cosmetic restoration for a radical improvement in both form and function.
Unhappy with his discoloured and crooked teeth, Andrew came to us seeking a perfect straight white smile. Following some orthodontic treatment to position his teeth perfectly we restored them handcrafted porcelain crowns and veneers. Since having the treatment, Andrew says his confidence has gone through the roof!
Dr Buckle and his team haven’t just given me my smile back, they have given me a massive boost in confidence. Smiling for photographs now is a pleasure. I used to smile with my mouth closed but now I have this biggest smile on the photo.
Sandra’s teeth were breaking down badly and she also had problems with her bite that made it difficult to chew. She had visited various dentists and a dental hospital, but no one could provide the help she needed. That was until she visited Dr Buckle, who restored Sandra’s smile with implants, crowns and composites for spectacular results.
Amy had an inherited condition which caused misshapen, misaligned teeth and had been undergoing orthodontics for 12 years without success. Amy disliked the effect her teeth had on her overall appearance, and she also had trouble breathing properly, which made it difficult to sleep. Orthognathic surgery was necessary to correct these before Dr Buckle improved Amy’s smile with orthodontics. The result is a dramatic change for Amy, with an improved facial contour and no more trouble sleeping.
Richard’s worn and broken teeth made him feel self-conscious. We determined the cause of Richard’s problems to be a poor bite and issues with his jaw joint. Dr Buckle corrected these before restoring Richard’s smile. The results are just as amazing more than a decade on.
Eve had been told surgery was the only way to correct her overbite. But with a little careful planning, Dr Buckle was able to solve the issue using fixed brace treatment. It took just ten months to achieve this amazing result for Eve.
As someone who's a bit of a wimp when it comes to needles and drills, I was pleased to discover that this is the first dental surgery I've been to where the treatment genuinely doesn't hurt - a testament to the skill and care provided by the staff. Treatment - fillings x 2, some reconstructive/aesthetic work and several hygiene appointments.
I have nothing but good things to say about the treatment I have recieved at Buckle Advanced Dental Care over the last year. Dr. Buckle and the rest of the team are caring, knowledgable and always take the time to ensure I understand whats happening with my teeth, which really puts me at ease. Thank you!
I would give 10 stars if I could.
