Cosmetic dentistry specializes in aesthetic smile enhancement. If you don’t like an aspect of your smile’s appearance, cosmetic dentistry procedures can help.
In general, cosmetic dentistry includes only elective procedures — those that aren’t medically necessary to maintain your oral health. But, the cosmetic dentists at Brooklyn City Dental know how important it is to like what you see in the mirror, and they can help you do exactly that with a variety of different cosmetic procedures.
Some of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments include:
Veneers alter the front of your tooth using a thin porcelain sheet.
In-office teeth whitening with the Zoom system can lighten your teeth up to eight shades in just an hour.
Invisalign works like braces but without the metal. These nearly invisible aligners straighten your teeth in an average of 12-18 months.
For bonding, the team applies tooth-colored composite resin to your teeth to conceal damage, reshape, or enhance their overall appearance.
Crowns and bridges are porcelain, metal, or a hybrid of both. They cover your whole tooth to transform its appearance or replace a missing tooth.
Dental implants permanently replace a lost tooth. They have metal roots secured in your jaw. If you want dental implants, you might need bone grafting to improve your jawbone density first.
Some of these procedures, such as Invisalign, crowns, and dental implants, improve your smile but also have oral health benefits. For example, Invisalign improves tooth alignment, crowns protect weak teeth, and dental implants prevent bone loss and tooth movement.
Because of these benefits, dental insurance might pay for part or all of your procedure in some cases.
It depends on the procedure. In most cases, cosmetic dentistry procedures are in-office treatments that only require one appointment. Some procedures require two appointments, one for prep and one for the actual treatment.
If you need more complex cosmetic dentistry services, such as a full-mouth rehabilitation, the Brooklyn City Dental team discusses your needs and maps out a full treatment plan in advance. That can help you plan both timewise and financially.
