The following are answers to some of the questions most commonly asked by our patients at Gentle Dental. For more specific information about any of our treatments, from porcelain veneers to Zoom!® teeth whitening, please contact our Queens dental practice, serving Flushing, Bayside, and surrounding communities, today.

If I want whiter teeth, what options are available to me?

At Gentle Dental, you’ll receive fully individualized attention and customized care. Depending on your needs and goals, this may entail a single whitening procedure or a more comprehensive approach involving a combination of procedures. Among the whitening options we offer are porcelain veneers, dental bonding, and Zoom!® teeth whitening.

If I undergo Zoom!® teeth whitening, how long does it take for optimal results?

With Zoom!® teeth whitening, our patients are able to have dramatically whiter teeth after a single office appointment, usually lasting about an hour. Although results are immediate, some patients find that their teeth become even whiter within a couple of days of undergoing the Zoom!® teeth whitening procedure.

I am a long-time denture wearer who is dissatisfied with the look and feel of my current dentures. Can you help me?

We gladly welcome patients with complex dental problems, including ill-fitting dentures. Our cosmetic dentures are crafted with extraordinary care and precision ensuring they look and feel completely natural. Because we use only the finest materials available, our dentures are remarkably hard-wearing and durable, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with utter confidence.

I have always been anxious about going to the dentist. Why should I schedule an appointment with Gentle Dental?

There are many, many people who share your anxiety. We understand completely and we also empathize with you. Good dental health is far too important for you to fear going to the dentist. This is precisely why we take extra special care in addressing the needs of apprehensive patients. We take your anxieties seriously and with a great deal of consideration. From the moment you first call us, our staff is focused on your comfort and your needs, so you’re always at ease. We’ve gone to great lengths acquiring and mastering the most advanced and effective technologies available in order to provide virtually painless treatment for a range of dental problems. And we promise you a very reassuring chair-side manner. When you visit our office, you’ll see for yourself that even our decor is designed to relax and soothe you. It is our goal to provide you with the most pleasant and pain-free dental care possible.

I haven’t visited a dentist in a while because I simply cannot bear dental drills. What alternatives are available to me?

Our precise, extremely effective dental laser can perform the work of a traditional dental drill in most cases. This dental laser is a remarkably quiet device that produces no heat, no vibration, and can often be used without an anesthetic. It’s quick, accurate, and comfortable, and has radically transformed the way most of our patients regard a trip to the dentist.

What you need to know about Dental Sealant


Do you accept emergency cases?

Absolutely. Unfortunately, tooth pain and other oral health problems do not adhere to a foreseeable schedule. If you have a dental emergency, we are happy to accommodate you. We will give you the attention you need promptly, and do whatever is necessary to alleviate your discomfort. We can also schedule a follow-up appointment if you need more permanent, long-term treatment.

How long do the results of cosmetic dentistry last?

The effectiveness of any cosmetic dentistry treatment is dependent on many factors, including the experience and talent of the dentist performing the procedure, the quality of the materials used, and the technology available in the office. Patients of Gentle Dental can expect the highest standards of professionalism, care, safety, and attention to detail. Our commitment to your satisfaction, comfort, and overall health is paramount. So with proper care and maintenance, your results will last for many years, whatever the procedure.
