Is there such a thing as a perfect smile? Yes, it's one that is healthy, bright, and gives you a sense of confidence. At Leading Dental Care in Garden City, NY, your cosmetic dentist can create this perfect smile through innovative services that are simpler than you may think—read on to learn more.
Changing your smile
It takes a little thought on your part: what smile features or flaws would you like to change? Most people dislike their tooth color. In fact, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) says that Americans wish to improve the shade of their smiles more than any other feature. What do you think?
Dr. Beckelman will ask you that question at a cosmetic dentistry consultation at his Garden City office. He'll also perform an oral exam and X-ray screening to determine your baseline oral health, as well as recommend specific services to advance your smile goals.
Cosmetic dentistry services at Leading Dental Care
Dr. Beckelman may suggest any one or a mix of the following aesthetic treatments:
- Professional teeth whitening: Choose from at-home whitening or a fast in-office treatment. Both use highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel which removes deeply embedded organic stains from foods, beverages, and smoking. Tooth color improves safely and dramatically—by up to eight or more shades.
- Composite resin bonding: Your dentist recreates normal tooth shape and size with a blend of glass and plastic. He repairs chips, narrow gaps, cracks, and more and hardens the resin with a UV light. Polishing finishes the repair (which can last for up to 10 years).
- Dental veneers: Made of high-grade porcelain, veneers cover flaws such as deep stains, cracks, and pits. Bonded to the front of teeth with a permanent adhesive, veneers also strengthen the weakened tooth structure. Customized veneers require a measure of enamel reduction to facilitate placement and fit. This resurfacing makes them a permanent renovation.
- Dental implants: Many smile makeovers include dental implants, replacement teeth with titanium roots, metal posts, and porcelain crowns. Implants improve jaw bone health and provide natural biting and chewing. From the cosmetic side, dental implants look completely realistic, and they fill unhealthy and unattractive smile gaps permanently.
