What Are the Best Whitening Options for Me?

Book your next appointment

Everyone wants a beautiful white smile. Maybe you’ve even looked into getting your teeth whitened at your dentist’s office. There are cheap teeth-whitening treatments available at the pharmacy, but if you really want the job done right, you need to have your dentist do it for you. We’ll make sure your teeth and gums are healthy, and it’s safe to carry out the procedure. Then we’ll explain the treatment options and help you pick the one that’s right for you.

Whitening for Life in the Office

If you’re already taking care of your teeth, you should be coming in to see us every six months. When you’re in for your next visit, ask about the Whitening for Life Program. This program sets you up with a set of custom bleaching trays and gel. After your regular cleaning, our Clinical Director and hygienist Jaclyn Cooper will explain how to put the gel into the trays and what you need to do to whiten your teeth.

The advantage of custom trays over the generic trays you can buy in the store is that we can assess the condition of your teeth and gums and check for any irritation the gel might be causing. We’re allowed to use higher concentrations of peroxide and other whiteners, so your teeth will get whiter faster, and we will address any sensitivity right away.

After your first visit, Jaclyn will check on you at every return visit, and you’ll get a supply of touch-up whitening gel at no extra cost. We want to be sure your teeth stay bright and white. All you need to do is keep up with your regular preventive care treatments.

ZOOM! in for a Quick Whitening

If you don’t like the idea of wearing trays full of gel every night and want to have white teeth in a hurry, we recommend Zoom! This is an in-office treatment that can remove multiple layers of stains in a single treatment. Zoom! is a light treatment, similar to a laser treatment, which uses LED lights and a whitening agent to remove stains from beneath the top layer of your enamel.

A Zoom! treatment lasts about an hour. You’ll see results right away, although badly stained teeth may need several treatments to remove all the stains. Best of all, Zoom! treatments are painless and cause no damage to your teeth. You may feel some minor sensitivity after the treatment.

Following your Zoom! treatment or treatments, you’ll be enrolled in the Whitening for Life program so that you can keep your teeth pearly white afterward. A regular course of whitening gel will keep any stains from re-forming on your teeth.

Other Alternatives

At Babylon Dental Care, we do not use laser whitening treatments because Zoom! is essentially the same type of treatment, only faster and less costly. Laser whitening is available at other facilities. We do not recommend over-the-counter whitening treatments simply because they do not produce the results that our products provide.

“I have never been to a dentist office that is sooo welcoming. I am not a fan of going to the dentist at all but when my sister recommended to try them, my thoughts about the dentist completely changed. This dentist office is very professional and do really care about the patient. I was amazed at the follow up phone call, email, and text! I highly recommend this dentist office to anyone and everyone.”

The dental assistants are so knowledgeable and warm! This is the ONLY dentist I would ever consider going to. Keep up the great work! I look forward to seeing you all again!”

Erin M. from West Babylon


“This is the kindest, most compassionate office I have ever been to. Every person on staff is polite and courteous; not something you see too often these days. I ‘hated’ going to the dentist so much that I would only go when I had a problem. Since I started using Babylon Dental about 8 years ago, I go 2 to 3 times a year for a cleaning and just to make sure everything’s ok. I recommend this practice to everyone I know!”

Nancie P. from West Babylon

Andrew L. from West Islip


“The staff at Babylon Dental Care are by far the most professional people I’ve encountered. I was greeted with a smile from the minute I walked in and that continued throughout my entire visit. The office from the waiting room to the exam room were immaculate. Everything that was done during my visit was explained to me in detail which helps for someone with a fear of the dentist. The best experience I’ve ever had at a dental office.””

Nickesha J. from Lindenhurst

“Who knew! I have always been afraid of the dentist because of a bad experience 25 years ago. This office renewed my comfort, and gave me the confidence to move forward and take care of dental work that should have been done years ago. The staff doctors and office personnel were so caring and receptive to my fear.”

Loretta P. from Bay Shore


“I have been a patient of Babylon Dental since Dr. Brown’s Office was originally in TSS shopping Center- perhaps 26 years now? I am always pleased with the high quality, professional care that I receive. I would not go anywhere else! Also, Maritza is a wonderful dental hygienist!”

Peter G. from Bating Hollow

Michael C. from North Babylon


“Amazing. I am deathly afraid, and have been hurt by many dentists. But Melody, who did my x-rays and cleaning, was great. I was amazed how much they actually CARED about how I felt and was doing. Dr. Brown who read my x-rays sat and just talked To me not at me for a good 15/20 minutes. Didn't suggest root canals, posts n crowns, yell at me about my missing back teeth. He just talked to me about what is currently going on and his best suggestions to care for it, which didn't include root canals, extraction etc. Therefore I would highly recommend them. And thank you for a really positive experience”

Pat M from Patchogue


“From the call center ( Jo ) to the front desk ( Jennifer) and of course Dr. Peck , highly recommended. They are professional and truly concerned about the patient's experience”

Boni M from Babylon


“I am not one to write reviews but I always have such a pleasant experience at this office, so I felt the need to share. The staff is friendly, the wait is short, it's easy to get appointments (especially because of their long hours) and it's super clean. Thank you, Babylon Dental Care!”

Jacqueline C from Sayville


“Everyone is always nice and sooooo patient. I would highly recommend this office to anyone that has a fear of going to the dentist. They also do wonderful community outreach! Very happy with the work they do!”

Andrea B from West Babylon


“The staff is so wonderful! Best experience I’ve ever had a dentist office by far. They offer the cutest “comfort bar” with tons of options to make you feel right at home. Not many people can say that they actually enjoyed their time at the dentist, but I 100% can!! Looking forward to coming back for my next cleaning!”
