So, if you’re ever in Long Island, New York and need some cosmetic dentistry work done we’re always willing to help a new patient so here are some of the services you should expect at our dental practice when you make an appointment.
Cosmetic tooth bonding is one of the treatment options we offer and it is a relatively simple and inexpensive cosmetic procedure for people looking for cost-effective tooth repair. It involves the application of resin – a material that resembles the shade of the tooth – on the tooth to repair decayed, discolored, or cracked teeth. It is also a very cost-effective method for altering the shape or position of a tooth or even closing large gaps between teeth.
Bonding is a super simple procedure that is usually completed within an hour for a single tooth. For the procedure, the cosmetic dentist will usually begin by finding a resin that closely matches the natural color of your teeth. Your natural teeth will then be prepared for the procedure by roughening the surface and applying a conditioning fluid to help the resin stick. The resin is then applied and molded into the desired shape and then hardened using UV light.
After your appointment, you should be free to resume your daily activities.
If you’ve ever thought that your smile could be a little straighter but don’t have the patience and perseverance to wear metal braces for months on end, Invisalign treatment is everything you need. Our cosmetic dentistry experts offer Invisalign treatment to individuals who want to reposition teeth that have become misaligned as an alternative to uncomfortable braces. With the right treatment plan, Invisalign can really make a difference and create a beautiful smile.
Invisalign is an unobtrusive cosmetic dental procedure that uses clear, customized aligners instead of traditional brackets and wires to help reposition crooked teeth. The aligners can also be removed at will, giving users the freedom to enjoy their favorite food without strange sensations or other items in their mouth. These aligners are further customized to fit the mouth, making them quite difficult to spot when they are in position, thus giving you a confidence boost while gradually realigning your teeth.
Porcelain veneers, sometimes called dental veneers, can be a good option for patients who want to sort issues related to chipped, discolored, or teeth severely affected by tooth decay. They can also work for people with a gap between teeth and those with crowing problems.
For this procedure, our general dentistry experts use thin pieces of customized porcelain to cover areas on the surface of the tooth. The dentist usually removes about a millimeter of enamel from the surface of the target tooth in preparation for the veneer. They’ll then take an impression of the area and use it to build a mold, which is then sent to a lab for custom-made veneers. When the veneer is ready, the dentist will bond it to your tooth using special dental cement, giving your problematic tooth a shiny new appearance.
Teeth whitening is a basic, uncomplicated cosmetic procedure that can have a huge impact on the quality of your smile. While the market out there is filled with tons of products that purport to give you that perfect bright smile, not all these products are created equal. Our cosmetic dentistry professionals use clinically-proven procedures to give our patients white teeth within a safe environment.
Teeth that have been stained over time from lifestyle habits can be whitened by removing tartar and other debris to brighten your teeth. We also bleach teeth to look brighter and lighter than their original shade using methods approved by the American Dental Association (ADA).
Dental implants have become a huge deal for Americans in recent years. According to the American College of Prosthodontics, more than 120 million Americans have at least one or more missing teeth. So, if you’re part of that statistic, dental implants are among the best ways to help restore that natural look and function after the loss of one or more teeth.
A dental implant is a titanic screw that is surgically drilled into your jawbone in an area where a tooth is missing. Once the screw is fixed into place, a new crown can be mounted to look and feel like a real tooth. Dentures supported by implants are usually more stable than conventional dentures, which gives significant benefits when eating and talking. If ordinary bridges and dentures give you significant discomfort or simply want to fill up a toothless gap on your jaw, our team of cosmetic dentistry experts can be of great help.
Indirect fillings, sometimes called inlays and onlays, are products made from composite resin material in a dental lab and are used to support a filling when a tooth’s structure is too compromised to support the filling. Inlays are used directly on the surface of the tooth when there’s minimal damage to the cusps, while onlays are applied when there’s greater damage to the tooth to cover the whole surface of the tooth.
At our general dentistry practice, we use indirect fillings to strengthen weak teeth, prevent deterioration of teeth that already decayed, or restore the shape of problematic teeth.
Cosmetic contouring, also called enameloplasty, is a fairly simple procedure that is used to fix misshapen teeth and other minor cosmetic shortcomings. The dentist uses tools such as lasers and drills to remove parts of a tooth’s enamel, in the process changing its shape and length. Contoured teeth are then polished to restore their shine, instantly providing an appealing smile for people who are not confident with their smile.
And because the whole procedure takes an hour or less on average, enamel shaping can be done within a day – painlessly – enabling you to walk out of the dentist’s office and dazzle your coworkers before your lunch break.
