With an appropriate oral hygiene regimen and regular cleanings, teeth whitening can last for years.
Dramatic whitening results, eliminate or substantially lighten stains and discoloration.
We also offer Zoom!® take-home whitening kits. And we can combine laser teeth whitening with other cosmetic and restorative options as part of a more comprehensive smile transformation. Indeed, many patients choose to undergo treatment prior to the placement of porcelain veneers so that their veneers can be color-matched to their newly whitened teeth.
Teeth whitening can dramatically brighten teeth that are stained and discolored, and laser teeth whitening in our Queens dental center is quick and entirely painless. Professional teeth whitening costs are highly affordable. Most importantly, professional teeth whitening is extremely safe. Gentle Dental uses Zoom Whitening, one of the best known and most effective systems available today. With appropriate aftercare, the results can last for years and can be regularly refreshed with top-up treatments.
When to Choose a Teeth Whitening Treatment?
Teeth can discolor for a variety of reasons:
- A love of tea, coffee or red wine, or other highly colored foods and beverages can stain teeth over time.
- Lifestyle habits like smoking or using tobacco products are well known for discoloring teeth.
- Teeth gradually darken with age as tooth enamel thins, exposing more of the dentin underneath.
- Some people naturally have darker colored teeth than others.
- Teeth can appear stained and discolored because of tetracycline use.
- Excess exposure to fluoride can cause dental fluorosis, creating brown spots or lacy white specks on teeth.
We often associate a whiter smile with youthfulness because if you look at a child’s or a younger person’s teeth, they are generally whiter as their tooth enamel is naturally thicker. When tooth enamel is thicker, it masks the natural color of the tooth in the dentin underneath, which is darker. Stained and discolored teeth can be prematurely aging.

How to Care for Your Teeth after Zoom Whitening?
It will take your teeth forty-eight hours to settle down after an in-office Zoom whitening treatment. This is because the treatment removes the acquired pellicle, a protective layer over your teeth. Until the layer reforms, your teeth are more vulnerable to staining. You only need to be especially vigilant during this time. Until then, it’s best to avoid very strongly colored foods and beverages and to stick to eating pale-colored foods. Foods best avoided include red wine, tea and coffee, tomatoes, berries, and condiments like mustard, soy sauce, and ketchup. You should also avoid soda and juice. We can advise you on which foods are best to eat. Otherwise, you will be able to brush and floss your teeth normally immediately after treatment.

Why Do I Need a Dental Checkup Before Teeth Whitening?
During this quick checkup, we will make sure you don’t have signs of active gum disease or untreated tooth decay or dental restorations that are leaking or crumbling. Aging restorations and untreated dental disease allow the teeth whitening gel to penetrate your teeth more deeply than is desirable, potentially causing sensitivity and tooth pain. Existing dental restorations like crowns, bridges, veneers, and composite resin fillings will not change color during teeth whitening. You may need to replace these restorations to create a whiter and evenly colored smile.
Some teeth might whiten less effectively than others. For example, a tooth that is internally stained by an older root canal treatment may need another method to whiten it effectively. Sometimes it is possible to bleach teeth internally, but we may suggest covering the tooth entirely with a restoration like a crown or a veneer.
How Long Will Zoom Whitening Last?
Combining Zoom Whitening with Other Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Patients often use Zoom whitening with other cosmetic dental treatments to create the best teeth whitening effects. For example, some patients will whiten their teeth before placing veneers or crowns, so the color is matched precisely to their new smile. Zoom whitening doesn’t cost a fortune and is one of the most affordable ways to brighten your smile.
