Teeth Whitening (Bleaching)

Teeth Whitening — Long Island

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.

It’s a safe, quick, and inexpensive luxury for you to indulge in. Just inform our caring team during any appointment that you would like to begin teeth whitening. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much of each shows when you talk and smile.

Please see our Photo Gallery for more before and after examples of Cosmetic Dentistry.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

For those of you who would like to see instant results, we offer EZ White In-Office Whitening. We offer EZ White because it is both very gentle and very effective. It offers superb results, up to 8 shapes lighter, without the significant sensitivity and discomfort that normally occurs after most other forms of in-office tooth whitening.

In-office teeth whitening takes about an hour. EZ White is light activated by the same gentle bonding light we use for cosmetic fillings. This means it works in a flash to whiten teeth, minimizing the chance for any discomfort.

Take Home Teeth Whitening

For those who prefer the convenience of whitening at home, a gentle impression is taken of your teeth to make a specialized mouthguard or stent to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used daily for an hour or less for a week or two, after which significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant.

Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects brown, yellow and mottled tooth stains
  • Works on people of all ages.
  • Is a near permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and bringing a smile alive.

For confidence in appearance, teeth whitening technology offers improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or veneers may be more appropriate.

Considerations

Over-the-counter whitening agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can harm the gums and teeth, its better to use products that our practice recommends.
