Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of a person's teeth, gums, and overall smile. It encompasses various dental procedures and treatments aimed at enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the oral cavity.
The primary goal of the cosmetic dentistry treatments we offer to patients in Brooklyn, NY, is to help them achieve a more attractive smile and boost their self-confidence. Cosmetic dentistry procedures can also have functional benefits such as improving bite alignment or restoring damaged teeth, even though the emphasis is on the visual impact and overall appearance of the teeth and gums.
At Brooklyn Smile, our cosmetic dentistry services include many treatments and procedures including teeth whitening, dental veneers, dental bonding, dental crowns, dental implants, orthodontic treatments, gum reshaping and more. These procedures can address various aesthetic concerns, such as tooth discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps, misalignment and tooth shape or size irregularities.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Losing a tooth can negatively impact your confidence and ability to eat and speak comfortably. A dental implant replaces the entire tooth from the root up. It is a permanent solution that looks and feels like your own tooth. Dental implants are crafted to match your natural teeth in appearance and function while being easy to care for and maintain.
Professional teeth whitening treatment is a specialized dental treatment designed to effectively and safely lighten the color of your teeth, eliminating stubborn stains and discoloration caused by various factors such as coffee, tea, tobacco, or aging.
For this procedure, Dr. Herskovits, our dentist in Brooklyn, NY, carefully applies a high-quality whitening solution to your teeth while ensuring protection for your gums and other soft tissues in your mouth. The active ingredients penetrate deep into the tooth enamel, breaking down complex molecules responsible for staining. As a result, you'll witness a significant improvement in the brightness and radiance of your smile within just one session at our dental clinic.
Veneers may be the perfect solution if you have chipped, discolored or slightly misaligned teeth. A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain that Dr. Herskovits, our dentist in Brooklyn, NY, places over the tooth’s surface to conceal flaws and improve its appearance.
Veneers are a great option for anyone who wants a brighter smile quickly and easily.
A crown is a cap that fits on top of a tooth to replace lost tooth structure. Crowns can permanently restore broken or damaged teeth and are made from various materials to best match your smile. Materials like resin-based composite or porcelain are used to ensure a natural look for the restoration.
