Professionals at the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry say that more people are asking for subtle smile makeovers, rather than drastic transformations. Gone are the days of flawless “chiclet teeth” that look almost too perfect to be real. If you embrace the idea of a beautiful but more natural-looking smile, Dr. Nick and Dr. Elliot offer a number of solutions in their Suffolk County cosmetic dentistry office.
Dr. Nick and Dr. Elliot are exceptionally skilled at correcting misshapen, broken or stained teeth in such a way as to lend balance and harmony to the patient’s facial features. This requires years of experience, a refined touch and a keen eye for aesthetic details. While tooth whitening is one of our most requested cosmetic services at Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry, veneers are a close second thanks to their porcelain or fine composite material that looks completely natural.
And we all know how much our smile says about us. An attractive smile conveys not only good health but self-confidence. One in two people are most likely to remember a person’s smile more than any other feature after a first meeting, says a recent survey conducted by the AACD.
You only get one shot at a first impression, so why not enhance your smile while preserving the health and functionality of your teeth?
In-office tooth whitening treatments are an excellent option for people with yellow, grayish or otherwise discolored teeth. Tea, wine, coffee, berries, certain medications and smoking can severely stain your teeth over time, even with proper oral hygiene. Dr. Nick and Elliott prefer whitening treatments such as Opalescence Boost and Zoom, both of which lighten your teeth several shades in just under an hour. These cosmetic treatments are effective, safe and deliver superior results that enhance your smile subtly.
Disproportionately small, chipped, misaligned or cracked teeth may fare better with dental veneers, which can alter the size, length and shape of your teeth, masking imperfections. Veneers are custom-made to cover your teeth, and thanks to today’s amazing technology, patients can test drive their veneers for up to 6 months, before the work is finalized. This window allows dentists to make minor adjustments before anything is permanent.
Veneers can be made from composite resin materials or porcelain, both of which promise a fantastic smile. Porcelain tends to resist staining better and mimic the look of natural teeth a bit more, but the pros and cons of each material can be discussed during a free consultation at our office. Crowns and bondings are also cost-effective alternatives to veneers and can be performed in just one office visit
