Cosmetic dentistry can do many things for your smile, from concealing cracks to eliminating stains. In short, cosmetic dentistry can give you an improved smile. A cosmetic dentist can recommend several appropriate procedures to achieve the smile you desire. At Sunset Dental Care in Patchogue, our experienced dentists, Dr. Debra Oreste and Dr. Jyoti Aggarwal can discuss your smile concerns and explain your cosmetic dentistry options.
Bonding can be used to address a variety of cosmetic issues. Cracked or chipped teeth can be repaired and small gaps or excess space between teeth can be closed. Bonding can also be used to cover traditional silver amalgam fillings so they are no longer noticeable. The material used for bonding is a composite resin that is white so it readily blends in with the natural teeth once it is dry.
Crowns are hollow shells that fit directly over flawed or damaged teeth like a cap. Once placed over a tooth, a crown completely encapsulates that tooth and conceals any cosmetic issues. Teeth that are oddly shaped or that have cracks, chips, stains, or discolorations can be given a brand new look simply by placing a custom crown over the problem tooth. The skilled dentists at our office in Patchogue can explain how crowns can help you achieve your ideal smile.
Veneers are used to cover various cosmetic issues and give teeth a flawless new appearance. Veneers are extremely thin laminates that are placed against the front surface of teeth with certain cosmetic flaws, such as cracks or chips. Once in place, veneers look just like your natural teeth, only flawless. Veneers are permanently bonded to the teeth and will remain securely in place when eating, drinking, and speaking.
Professional teeth whitening treatments are an excellent way to easily refresh your smile. We offer two whitening options at our dental practice in Patchogue. One option is a tray whitening system in which custom trays will be created for you to use at home with our special whitening gel. After several treatments, your smile can be four to eight shades whiter. We also offer Zoom whitening in the office. Our dental professionals apply the whitening gel and activity it using a low intensity light. In just one hour, your smile could be six to ten shades whiter.
There are many cosmetic dentistry options to help you achieve the smile you want. The knowledgeable dentists at our practice in Patchogue can recommend specific procedures for you based on your needs and objectives.
