What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve the smile you always wanted! From veneers to teeth whitening, cosmetic dentistry can help improve your teeth’s appearance, mood, and confidence! Let’s take a look into the world of cosmetic dentistry and its main procedures:

Invisalign

Dr. Steven Ritholtz will help you achieve the smile of your dreams! Uniquely designed for your situation, you will wear clear, custom-made Invisalign aligners for around 5-7 months. The best part of Invisalign is that people will not even notice you are straightening your teeth; there are no metal brackets or wires to tighten!

Veneers

If you have cracked or damaged teeth, crooked teeth, or gaps in between their teeth, veneers can help correct and strengthen your smile. Dental veneers are usually made from porcelain or resin and bonded to the front of your tooth. Our dentists will make sure that the size, shape, and color of the veneers are made to fit your smile!

Teeth Whitening 

If your teeth have become discolored from food and beverages, teeth whitening can give you back your bright smile! Teeth whitening is the simplest form of cosmetic dentistry and can restore your teeth’s appearance in no time! Our dentists start the process by cleaning your teeth to remove any plaque or tartar build up. Then, a bleaching agent containing carbamide peroxide is applied to the teeth. Once applied, a laser light enhances the whitening agent. For 48 hours after the procedure, please avoid dark-colored foods and beverages such as coffee and soda.

Dental Crowns 

Dental crowns are used for a variety of reasons, such as recovering extreme teeth discoloration, weak teeth, and cracked teeth. When undergoing a dental crown procedure, the crown is capped over the tooth. Not only does a dental crown improve a person’s appearance, but it also strengthens teeth, restores color, and corrects shape & size. And with our time-saving same day crown service, you can have a custom dental crown placed in just one day! 

Dental Implants 

Dental implants are used when a patient has lost a tooth. Tooth loss can be caused by a number of dental issues, including tooth decay and gum disease. At the start of a dental implant procedure, our dentists will insert a titanium screw into the bone socket of your jaw. Once the titanium screw heals and fuses to the jawbone, it can support a new replacement tooth.

At Premier Dental Associates, we strive for all of our patients to have healthy and beautiful smiles! If you would like to learn more about our cosmetic dentistry procedures or would like to schedule an appointment with us, please call 212-587-0202 or book online here.
