Let cosmetic dentists Dr. Nick and Dr. Elliot of Long Island Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of!
Whether you’re in need of porcelain veneers, dentures, teeth whitening or gum reconstruction, Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry is widely considered among the best cosmetic dentistry practices in Suffolk County, New York. Our highly skilled cosmetic dentists are proud to help our patients improve their smiles, self-esteem and confidence. Stained, broken, misshapen or missing teeth can be a source of embarrassment for many, but such issues are easily corrected in the capable hands of Dr. Elliott and Dr. Nick, who offer a variety of innovative procedures that preserve natural tooth structure while delivering stunning results.
From subtle changes to major cosmetic dentistry, our team offers a host of cost-effective procedures to enhance your smile – many of which can be accomplished in just one office visit. Those contemplating a “smile makeover” have many more options available today, as advances in restorative dentistry continue to be made.
Cosmetic dental bonding is used for many different purposes, including the repair of broken, stained, decayed or chipped teeth. A composite resin is applied to the affected tooth’s surface, where it is sculpted and later hardened with a special high-intensity light. Cosmetic bonding is useful for correcting small areas in the front or back of the mouth, and also utilized to alter the shape of teeth and filling minor cavities.
A dental bridge can replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth, restoring your smile to its original glory. Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry offers fixed, removable and cantilever bridges, which promise a natural fit and appearance. Fixed bridges are the most commonly requested, and involve the placement of crowns on either side of the missing tooth, and a composite false tooth in between. With proper oral hygiene and regular checkups, a fixed dental bridge can last from 10 to 15 years.
For decades, partial dentures were the go-to solution for patients who had lost a few scattered teeth along the upper or lower jaw. These removable replacement teeth are firmly affixed to healthy teeth with metal attachments and have a gum-colored portion fitted with prosthetic teeth. In addition to these and full dentures, our practice also offers specialty tooth replacements. One such treatment is overdentures – which blends the latest advancements in dental implants with conventional denture protocol. Overdentures rely on your natural teeth as anchors, providing extra stabilization that makes eating more comfortable and helping prevent further bone loss.
Bothered by your “gummy smile”? Those endowed with excessive gums and/or small teeth are often self-conscious and reluctant to smile. Cosmetic dentists concur that anything more than four millimeters of exposed pink gum tissue starts to appear “gummy.” Fortunately, Dr. Elliot and Dr. Nick have advanced surgical training in gum reconstruction and aesthetic dental defects and can safely modify the shape and position of the gum to ensure more natural enamel shows. Gum grafting is also an effective treatment for receding gums.
Invisalign® & Invisalign Teen®
Comfortable, invisible and removable, Invisalign® has transformed the landscape of orthodontics, helping teens and adults achieve a beautiful smile without the hassles of metal braces. The total treatment period averages about 11 months, with most patients changing custom-made clear aligners less than 30 times. The beauty of this teeth straightening innovation is that patients can remove Invisalign while they eat, drink and brush. Our Long Island practice also offers Invaslign Teen — the clear alternative to metal braces for adolescent patients.
Porcelain veneers are bonded to the tooth’s surface, addressing common problems like broken or chipped teeth, discoloration, overcrowding, and even misshapen teeth. This versatile treatment may also be suggested to patients with large gaps in their teeth or those who did not benefit from teeth whitening. Porcelain veneers offer virtually instant results and can be placed in two sessions.
Not all veneers are created equal. Ultra-thin and long-lasting, Lumineers® are a painless way to correct common dental problems such as discolored, crooked or chipped teeth without drilling. They are recommended for patients who need minor cosmetic enhancements with no downtime. Dr. Elliot and Dr. Nick can place this revolutionary veneer in just two office visits. And Lumineers are designed to last up to 20 years!
Tooth colored restorations
Older restorative materials like amalgam and gold were extremely durable, but unsightly. Today, cosmetic dentists offer tooth colored restorations, more commonly known as white fillings. These fillings, created from composite resin, are contoured to your exact bite, contain no mercury, and look just like your own teeth. Tooth colored restorations are matched to the same shade and translucency of your existing teeth, making them nearly indiscernible.
Nicotine, acidic foods and coffee stains can wreak havoc on your smile. Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry offers both Opalescence® and laser teeth whitening, which are guaranteed to brighten your teeth by up to ten shades. Whether you choose an in-office teeth whitening treatment, or take-home kit, a more luminous, youthful-looking smile is in your future with this safe and painless treatment.
