Cosmetic dentistry uses restorations, orthodontic appliances, and whitening treatments to improve the physical appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile.
Cosmetic dentistry is elective, but some services –– like dental bridges and dental implants –– provide the additional benefit of improved oral health. By replacing missing permanent teeth, you can significantly reduce the risk of gum recession, tooth, and bone loss.
Brooklyn City Dental offers a variety of cosmetic dental services, including:
Veneers are paper-thin shells of porcelain that your dentist bonds to the front of your permanent teeth. They make your smile appear more symmetrical and cover up minor imperfections like stains or unusually shaped teeth.
Laminates are very similar to veneers. One difference is the amount of preparation. With veneers, your dentist removes a thin layer of enamel from each tooth. Laminates only require minimal preparation.
Teeth whitening uses solutions like hydrogen peroxide gel to remove stains from the surface of your teeth. Brooklyn City Dental offers in-office teeth whitening using the Phillips Zoom! system.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-crafted aligners to improve the position of your teeth and jaw. Treatment is much more convenient (and discreet) than with traditional metal braces.
Dental bonding uses composite resin to repair minor tooth damage like chips, pitting, or cracks. It’s quick, convenient, and requires no downtime.
Enamel shaping uses special tools to improve the shape of one (or several teeth). It’s especially beneficial if you have teeth that are pointy or abnormally sized.
Crowns repair a chipped or decaying tooth or cover a discolored tooth. Brooklyn City Dental offers porcelain crowns. These caps restore your tooth’s strength and appearance, making it easy to bite and chew confidently.
A dental bridge replaces a missing tooth, which prevents your surrounding teeth from moving out of the proper position while maintaining the look of your smile.
Gum reshaping uses special tools to eliminate excess gum tissue. You might benefit from this procedure if you have a “gummy” smile.
Sometimes, one cosmetic procedure isn’t enough to achieve your desired results. A smile makeover combines two or more treatments, ensuring a satisfactory outcome.
