At Park View Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we are committed to helping our patients achieve healthy and confident smiles. Our practice is home to a team of top dentists and orthodontists and has been making children’s smiles brilliant since 1986. When faced with staining or discoloration on teeth, sometimes as a result of orthodontic braces, our pediatric dentists may recommend several options available for teeth whitening for kids in NYC in order to brighten their smiles.

What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening, also known as teeth bleaching, is a non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that’s used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and enhance the beauty of your smile.
Does my child need teeth whitening?
Our pediatric dentists may recommend teeth whitening for kids due to:
- Discoloration of teeth following braces
- Excessive fluoridation during tooth development (fluorosis)
- Stained teeth from medications (e.g. tetracycline)
- Permanent teeth coming in yellow or discolored
In cases where patients have white spots on teeth and are looking for a way to remove these markings, Park View Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics also offers a technology called Icon, a resin infiltration system, which can effectively remove white spots on teeth.
What People Say About Us!
"Dr. Rima is awesome and I am recommending her to any parent "I had the pleasure of bringing my 2 y/o daughter to the Dentist here at Park View earlier this week and I was more than impressed. My daughter doesn't particularly like white coats so I asked that she not wear it and they were happy to accommodate us (Not that it made a difference). Dr. Rima was gentle, she was soft spoken but she's serious about your child's teeth. After the visit my daughter was a new person and even I was shocked at how quickly she opened up or at all. With that being said, That was the most comfortable I've seen my daughter in a clinical setting. Dr. Rima is awesome and I am recommending her to any parent that's looking for a dental comfort zone for their child. I'm tagging it as the Crème de la Crème of Pediatric Dentists.""
