Buccal pertains to the cheek or to structures adjacent to the cheek.

Detailed Information:
In dentistry buccal often refers to the outer surface of the back teeth (molars) that are next to the cheek. The buccal surface of the teeth in the front of the mouth is sometimes called the facial or labial surface.

Poor buccal-dental health stemming from inadequate oral hygiene leads to both tooth decay and gum disease. Dentists and health organizations try to educate populations throughout the world in order to promote sound buccal-dental health.

Yes it is worth it. As long as the result is that you have whiter teeth.
