Dr. Reingold can customize and control your treatment to help you safely achieve your whitening goals and keep your results longer. Call today and schedule your visit and consultation for the 1-Hour Whitening System at our New York, NY office.
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.
