At LuxDen dental clinic, we understand that cosmetic dentistry provides our dental patients more than just an improved smile. Our cosmetic dentists in Brooklyn recommends customized dental treatments to our patients after a close dental examination and x-rays to evaluate each patient’s needs. Cosmetic dentistry aims to improve the appearance of the teeth, gums, and mouth as a whole. While they don’t promote increased functionality, they do benefit many patients who have a less than desirable smile. Whether you are receiving veneers, tooth bonding, teeth whitening, or Invisalign, our Brooklyn dental office can provide many professional cosmetic dentistry options.
Dental veneers, often called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are ultra-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. These pieces are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or resin composite materials. Ultimately, these dental appliances in Brooklyn can help solve the problem of discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, misaligned, uneven, or gapped teeth.
Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. We will discuss the best option for you on during your initial dental examination to best suit your particular case. In some instances, a bit of the existing enamel may be removed to make a more desirable surface to apply the veneers, but this isn’t always the case. Veneers are permanent as they are bonded directly to the front of the existing teeth in a patient’s mouth.
Tooth bonding is used for a variety of purposes such as correcting a tooth gap, covering discolorations, or repairing chipped and cracked teeth. Tooth bonding is dependent on the artistic ability of our professional dental team since the work is done “free hand,” without taking impressions or using a laboratory. The tooth must be color matched, sculpted and polished to produce a beautiful and natural-looking result. Our dental team uses a tooth-colored resin material and a curing light so that it bonds successfully.
During this cosmetic dentistry procedure, some of the surface enamel is removed, which allows our LuxDen cosmetic dentist to shape the composite resin to the tooth. Next, a bonding agent is applied, the composite resin is put on top of that and everything is cured with a special light. A tooth polish completes this safe and effective dental procedure.
One of the quickest ways to get whiter and brighter teeth is with Zoom! Whitening. This is an in-office bleaching treatment that is widely known for its ability to brighten your teeth from the effects of tooth discoloration quickly. The entire teeth whitening procedure takes just an hour in our Brooklyn office, and effects can be seen right away after treatment. Zoom! Whitening can lighten your teeth up to 8 shades after just one procedure. A preliminary evaluation and teeth cleaning are recommended before starting Zoom! Whitening.
Invisalign® has changed the face of orthodontics. Instead of wires attached to your teeth, your teeth can now be straightened invisibly our Brooklyn office. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss regularly to maintain good oral hygiene. There are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation, and less time in the dentist’s chair getting adjustments too. Talk about a bonus!
During the initial visit, our LuxDen team takes x-rays of your teeth, and our cosmetic dentist determines the best way to get your teeth to their desired positions. These x-rays or even photos allow us to track your progress over time. Ultimately, these transparent aligners are customized for your oral health and help you to achieve amazing results in a short amount of time (usually less than a year’s time). A preliminary dental examination is necessary to evaluate your oral health situation so we can optimize your treatment.
