Thank you for visiting the offices of Harvey L. Griesner, DDS. Our local dentist in Forest Hills NY offers the best in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. For those looking for nice white teeth, we offer teeth bleaching, a safe and easy procedure. Teeth bleaching is the best way to have whiter, brighter teeth in only a few short visits.
Whitening is done with one of two easy and simple bleaching procedures. Patients can either have their teeth whitened in our offices or by using a take home tray designed to fit their mouth. The at home tray can be done easily from the comfort of your own home. If you choose to have your teeth whitened in office, we’ll make the procedure as simple as possible. First we perform an oral health check up to make sure the teeth and gums are healthy and free from any gum disease. Our local dentist in Forest Hills NY then creates a custom tray for the teeth that allows the whitening gel to be applied to teeth safely and without irritating the gums.
For the take home whitening system, our local dentist in Forest Hills NY will create a custom tray to fit your teeth. This tray can be used in the privacy of your own home and at any time. The tray can be used overnight in some cases as well, depending on the level of whitening needed. Teeth can be stained over time from various substances, including red wine, nicotine, coffee and certain types of medications. The stains cause the enamel of the teeth to become brown or discolored. Our bleaching process can penetrate the stains on the enamel and whiten the teeth by at least a few shades or more. Teeth whitening usually lasts about a year or so, depending on the level of care given.
