Cosmetic dentistry is a broad term. It includes various procedures like teeth whitening, dental bonding, veneers, and more that can be used to improve a person’s smile. At Smile Dental Group in Jackson Heights, we prioritize our patients and want to provide them with the latest in the world of dentistry.
Our dentists are trained in performing cosmetic procedures and have the tools to perform them. Each patient will be recommended certain procedures based on his or her dental status. Even patients that look like they have the same problem might need different forms of treatment.
Our teeth can start to stain over the years. At Smile Dental Group, there are several ways of dealing with stained teeth. Teeth whitening is the most popular and the reason many people look for cosmetic dentistry in Jackson Heights. Using chemicals similar to those in bleach in safe concentrations, we can remove stains from teeth.
Veneers can be attached to teeth to make them look better and hide stains. Patients often get veneers for all of their front teeth for a bright and beautiful smile. Dental veneers are permanent and can only be removed at the dentist’s office. They’re also effective at covering up chipped and broken teeth.
Veneers can also be used to cover damaged teeth, but other options are available. For example, dental bonding using composite resin is a great option for repairing teeth. The composite resin is shaped into the missing part of the tooth and used to replace it. Rest assured that we can modify the color of composite resin, so it fits in with your natural teeth.
Crowns are like caps that are placed permanently over teeth. They’re the most durable of all the options we talked about. They’re often recommended for patients who only have one or two damaged teeth. They’re too expensive and invasive to be used for multiple teeth.
We can use implants, bridges, and dentures to replace missing teeth for a better smile. These aren’t required as often as the other procedures we talked about.
