Teeth Whitening in Tuckahoe, NY

What are My Tooth Whitening Options?

Because we like giving our patients choices that suit their needs and lifestyles, Dr. Gorsky offers both in-office whitening and customized take-home tooth whitening kits. Both options use prescription-grade gels that are much stronger and more effective than over-the-counter whitening gels and strips.

In-Office Whitening with BriteSmile

In-office whitening is super fast and effective. Our BriteSmile whitening technique can lighten and brighten your teeth up to eight shades in the time it usually takes you to eat lunch! It is a great way to freshen your look before a class reunion, a big date, or a job interview – it even makes a great pick-me-up to help you feel younger and more vibrant. We think you deserve it!

Take-Home Whitening Kits

If you feel more comfortable whitening your teeth at home or want the convenience of whitening whenever and wherever you have time, we offer Opalescence take home whitening kits with custom made trays for the ultimate comfort and fit. Just fill the trays with your prescription gel and whiten them away. In about two weeks, your smile will look brighter and whiter!

How to Care for Your White Teeth

After your treatment, you will likely want your results to last as long as possible. As a result, there are a few things that you want to do and keep in mind after your procedure. 

Following Bleaching:

  • Teeth are more susceptible to staining for the first 48 hours following bleaching treatments. For the first 48 hours after whitening, it is best to avoid dark-colored foods or beverages that can stain your teeth. Any item that can stain your clothes can also stain your teeth.
  • Avoid berries, cola or other dark sodas, red wine, coffee and tea, tobacco, ketchup, soy, or other dark sauces.

Using Your Custom Trays:

  • Follow the instructions given by our office, placing the bleaching gel in the center of each tooth position on the tray so that the gel will rest against the anterior surface of the teeth once it is placed in your mouth.
  • Wear trays for the recommended time.
  • Rinse the mouth, and gently remove any gel remaining on your teeth with a soft bristle toothbrush.
  • Clean the trays.
