If you are looking to improve the appearance of your smile and whiten your teeth quickly, teeth whitening in Forest Hills NY is the perfect solution. While there are at-home, over-the-counter options, the most effective, efficient, and quick option for whitening is professional teeth whitening by Dr. Gregory Mark at Forest Hills Dental. Dr. Mark specializes in cosmetic treatment and is able to provide outstanding whitening services that return the bright white to your smile.

Same-Day In-Office Teeth Whitening in Forest Hills NY

For same-day, in-office teeth whitening services, look no further than Forest Hills Dental. Within an hour and a half, you’ll be all done! You’ll leave Forest Hills Dental with an outstanding, bright, and white smile. You won’t believe how effective same-day whitening is!

Forest Hills Dental uses KöR whitening products for the teeth whitening services that we provide. This effective solution is gel-based and offers outstanding same-day whitening treatments. It’s a powerful solution that is also gentle.

The teeth whitening process begins with an appointment with Dr. Mark to take a look and see if you are a good candidate for whitening services and to see if there are any other repairs or restorative services required.

Once the procedure begins, Dr. Mark will apply a protective coating over your gums. This prevents sensitivity and irritation. Dr. Mark will then brush the KöR gel over your teeth. It will sit on your teeth for around 10-15 minutes. He may use a light to speed up the process. He will then rinse away the gel and check the shade of your teeth.

Dr. Mark may reapply the gel a few more times. The number of times the gel is applied will depend on the extent of the stains.

The professional-grade whitening gel oxidizes stain particles and whitens the enamel underneath. This brightens your teeth by several shades. A shade guide is used to measure the before and after of the procedure so you can see how much whiter your teeth are. Even without the guide, though, you’ll definitely see the difference!

If you need same-day whitening for an upcoming event or you would simply prefer a faster whitening solution, reach out to Forest Hills Dental about professional whitening.

Internal Deep Bleaching

If you have a single tooth that is darker due to trauma, nerve deterioration, or any other issues that prevent the tooth from whitening with a professional whitening application, an internal deep bleaching may be the right solution to brighten the shade of the tooth.

Dr. Mark is able to provide a single tooth deep bleaching that involves him accessing the nerve chamber and whitening the tooth from the inside out (instead of whitening the outside of the tooth). the whitening product is placed inside the tooth, which allows it to whiten in the opposite direction.

This form of tooth bleaching is offered on a case-by-case basis and is not intended for multiple teeth. Instead, it is a restoration method that may be available for problematic teeth that are getting in the way of a perfect smile.

Take-Home Whitening Trays

Another teeth whitening option is take-home whitening trays. This involves the creation of a custom set of bleaching trays that are made by taking an impression of the teeth of a patient. This allows the whitening to be equally distributed, and it provides better results than over-the-counter at-home products.

The process of at-home whitening involves placing a small dot of KöR whitening gel inside of the reservoir of each tooth. You then place the tray over your bite and ensure the gel is spread across your teeth without spilling over onto your gums. This may irritate or bleach the gum tissue.

At-home whitening trays require a patient to wear the trays for at least an hour a day for 10-14 days. While you will begin to see a big difference before then, you’ll want to keep wearing them to get even better results.

While at-home gel is designed to whiten while reducing the risk of tooth sensitivity, it is recommended that you use a sensitivity toothpaste for a couple of weeks before your teeth whitening and throughout the whitening process. You may also choose to wear your trays every other day (instead of daily).

If you would like to learn more about take-home trays, give Forest Hills Dental a call. We’ll answer any questions and book you an appointment to see Dr. Mark.

Touch Ups and Maintenance

It’s important to keep in mind that—although professional whitening is extremely effective—it doesn’t last forever. Eventually, your teeth will begin to discolor again, and a touchup will be needed. When your teeth start to yellow again, let us know. We can schedule you an appointment for a touch-up. Touch-ups can generally be scheduled around every 3-4 months.

In order to extend the life of your teeth whitening, you’ll want to take good care of your teeth and avoid food and drinks that will yellow or stain your teeth. This includes coffee, tea, wine, dark soda, and tobacco.

If you are in need of more whitening gel for at-home treatment, let us know. We’ll check to see if you are ready for another treatment.

Is Teeth Whitening Right for Me?

Whether it is professional teeth whitening in Forest Hills NY or over-the-counter whitening strips, it’s important to visit Forest Hills Dental first for an exam. We’ll check the condition of your teeth and look for signs of tooth decay or gum disease. This can delay your cosmetic treatment.

If you have tooth-colored restorations (such as porcelain crowns or white fillings) in your smile zone, it’s important to note they won’t respond to the whitening products. They will stay the same shade, and the teeth around them will whiten. You may need to have them updated to match your whitened teeth to avoid inconsistency.

While teeth whitening is generally for adults, teenagers may also be candidates for teeth whitening. For teens, we prefer a gentler whitening system. Let Dr. Mark know if you are considering teeth whitening for your teenager during your teen’s next dental exam.

Before you receive any additional cosmetic treatments, it is recommended that you whiten your teeth first. The restoration can then be matched with your whiter, brighter smile.

Payment Options

We want you to be happy with your smile! That’s why we offer different payment options for our dental services. It’s important to note that many dental insurance providers do not cover teeth whitening. Still, we will check to see if your company will cover the procedure and we will negotiate the best rate possible if they do. With that said, we can discuss other payment options if your teeth whitening is not covered.

General Services

Teeth whitening is a fantastic cosmetic option but it’s best to have your teeth cleaned regularly to avoid buildup and stains, to begin with. Once plaque and buildup are removed, you’ll likely notice a difference in the shade of your teeth. With that said, the difference may be minor and teeth whitening may still be required to get the brightness you are looking for.

Make sure you schedule an appointment for a checkup and cleaning every six months. Dr. Mark will check your teeth, gums, and jawbone. If there are any issues, he can diagnose and then address them. If you are in need of cosmetic or restorative services, Dr. Mark will be able to complete these after whitening to ensure the shade matches your whiter teeth. If you need a full smile restoration, Dr. Mark will put together a plan to ensure your smile looks amazing.

Expect x-rays during your checkup. These are extremely important for Dr. Mark to diagnose oral health issues. The x-rays we perform are extremely safe.

If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, that’s okay! We are happy to get you caught up and provide you with a checkup and cleaning—even if it’s been a long time since your last appointment.

For any questions about cleanings, checkups, x-rays, or full smile restoration, reach out to Forest Hills Dental.
