"Dr. Reingold is the best! I have been going to him for almost a decade and he is extremely thorough, professional and makes going to the dentist fun! I always have a pleasant experience at to the office, not only due to the top notch dentistry but because his staff is so nice and welcoming. I am treated like family every time I arrive, and really cannot say enough good things about Dr. R and his amazing team!"- L.L. / Google / Apr 12, 2021
"I've been a patient of Dr. Reingold for over 10 years and have been incredibly happy the whole time. He take a minimalist, don't do it unless you need it, approach. Recently I went through invisalign treatment and he made it as easy as possible, setting expectations as always. I needed some slight restorative work afterward and that turned out amazing as well. Can't recommend his practice enough!"- J. / Google / Nov 14, 2020
"I've been going to Dr. Reingold since 2012 and 2013, and I can't speak highly enough of him and his staff - I've referred several friends here! It's always a pleasure to see them for my regular cleaning - everyone is friendly, and they treat you as more than a faceless patient. When I started having issues with misalignment, six years after becoming a patient, they answered all of my neurotic questions before I started Invisalign. My Invisalign treatment was done nearly a month earlier than expected, which was fantastic. I can't recommend Everlasting Smile enough!"- C.S. / Google / Sep 21, 2020

What to Expect
1-Hour Whitening is done in our office and while anesthesia is not needed, sedation options are available for patients with anxiety or a strong gag-reflex. For the best results, the teeth will be professionally cleaned and polished before the treatment, then the teeth will be dried and a protective barrier will be applied over the gums. Once the teeth and gums are prepped, the dentist will apply the whitening gel to the the teeth and then activate the gel with a special light. Once the gel is activated, stains will be removed from the enamel for several minutes until the dentist removes the gel. Depending on the patient's current enamel color and whitening goals, the gel will be applied up to 3 time. Once the whitening treatment is complete, the dentist will remove the gel and gum barrier before fully rinsing the mouth.
After the treatment, patients should avoid staining food and beverages as well as tobacco products as much as possible to maintain the results of their teeth whitening treatment. Some patients may have some sensitivity after the procedure, which should be discussed with the dentist if it lasts longer than 3 – 5 days after the treatment. Patients should continue to follow a good home oral care routine and visit the dentist twice a year for a professional cleaning and once a year for a dental exam to minimize future staining. With good oral care, the results of a teeth whitening treatment can last for several years and be touched-up as needed.
Cosmetic teeth whitening treatments are usually not covered by dental insurance since it is a cosmetic procedure, but our office can confirm your coverage before discussing cost. Our office offers many payment options and financing plans to cover procedures like teeth whitening.
