Studies show that a bright, healthy-looking smile can make a great impression when you meet someone for the first time.
If your smile has become dull due to age or stains from certain foods, beverages, or lifestyle habits, teeth whitening can help.
Why do Flushing, NY, patients trust Jewel Dental Associates' Dr. Michael Feldstein to brighten their teeth with teeth whitening treatments?
Goodbye Dull. Hello, Dazzling!
Do Lots of People Whiten Their Teeth?
What About Store-Bought Teeth Whitening Products?
Stronger Bleaching Formulation
Over-the-counter whitening toothpastes, strips, and rinses use a weaker hydrogen peroxide formula than the in-home whitening options offered by our dental office. Our Flushing, NY, practice uses 14-16% strength, while most over-the-counter products use around 3%.
Store-bought whitening toothpastes, gels, and strips can take several weeks or even months to show the slightest whitening results. Our home-use kits can leave your teeth several shades brighter in about two weeks, depending on your individual case.
Customized Whitening Trays
Only an in-office teeth whitening appointment at our Flushing, NY, practice can give you a customized whitening experience. Our whitening trays are designed to fit snuggly around your teeth, evenly distributing the bleaching agent. Store-bought trays may cause uneven results.
Less Gum Irritation
Because our at-home whitening trays fit snuggly, the hydrogen peroxide stays where it is needed: on your teeth. Ill-fitting store-bought trays can allow the bleaching gel to spread, irritating sensitive gum tissue.
Can Damage Tooth Enamel
Dr. Feldstein has over 30 years of dentistry experience, so he knows the exact gel strength and duration of treatment you need to achieve your whitening goals. Using store-bought strips or gels too long can damage your tooth enamel and the dental tissue beneath.
No Professional Supervision
You are on your own when you use store-bought products. Professional supervision from our knowledgeable dentists can ensure you are using your prescribed at-home whitening kit correctly and safely.
How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?
Our at-home treatments cost about $400, and achieve long-lasting results in about two weeks. In comparison, you could spend more than this over the course of a year buying less-effective store-bought whitening products.
Dr. Feldstein offers financing through CareCredit® to make this cosmetic treatment easier to afford. CareCredit breaks down out-of-pocket fees into low-interest monthly payments.

Our At-Home Teeth Whitening Treatments
Our practice exclusively uses these safe and effective Philips Zoom! at-home whitening products:
Nitewhite whitening trays are worn overnight while you sleep. Your dentist will show you exactly how much of the whitening gel to put in your customized trays using the included syringe. Then you just pop them in your mouth like a retainer and sleep your way to a dramatically brighter smile. Nitewhite is usually used for about two weeks, but you might wear the trays for less or more time depending on what our dentist prescribes.
Daywhite is perfect for teeth whitening patients who want to wear trays for as little time as possible or have trouble sleeping while wearing oral appliances. Daywhite contains a stronger bleaching solution, so you only have to wear your customized trays for about 30 minutes a day. You should experience a brighter, whiter smile in about two weeks, depending on how long our dentist suggests you use the product.
Keep Your Bright Smile for a Good, Long While
Teeth whitening results are not permanent, but you can maintain your brightened smile by following these suggestions:
- Limit staining beverages like soda, coffee, tea, and red wine.
- Brush or rinse as soon as possible after consuming staining beverages.
- Make sure your floss and brush well every day to decrease plaque build-up and remove surface stains.
- Stop smoking or using any kind of tobacco product. This is for your overall health as well.

Who likes going to the dentist? I’d rather have a root canal than go there…well, you get my point. But for over 20 years I have been going there. They cover the basics; pain free procedures, same day appointments, incredibly friendly professional staff and major discounts with every favorable review…well, I’ll let you know about this last one. Dr. Feldstein and Jo, his super assistant, are a great team. They manage to keep me calm even when he has most of his hand inside my mouth and his sidekick is suctioning my drool. I hope you don’t have to go to the dentist, but if you do, then go there, they are very good at their jobs.View on Google
