Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is the field of dental care that prioritizes the look of your smile. Hartsdale Cosmetic Dentistry offers many of the latest and most popular cosmetic dentistry services to correct minor areas of damage or unfavorable features in your smile. 

Cosmetic dentist services can address:

  • Misalignment
  • Staining and discoloration
  • Cracks and chips
  • Teeth that appear too small
  • Missing teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

During a one-on-one consultation with your dentist, you’ll discuss your smile’s current appearance and the flaws you’d like to correct. They can make treatment recommendations for one or more cosmetic services to perfect your smile and start the planning stage right away.

What are my options for cosmetic dentistry services?

The dental experts at Hartsdale Cosmetic Dentistry are available to answer all of your questions about the numerous available cosmetic services. As part of a comprehensive treatment plan, you and your dentist can choose one or more of the following:

Veneers

Veneers are caps for the fronts of your teeth that improve their shape, size, or shade. 

Dental crowns

Dental crowns fit over weak or damaged teeth to reinforce their strength and structure. 

Dental implants

Your dentist inserts dental implants into your jaw bone to serve as anchors for dental crowns, which replace missing teeth in this case. 

Dental bonding

During dental bonding, your dentist uses a bonding material similar to natural tooth enamel to repair tooth damage. 

Tooth-colored fillings

Tooth-colored fillings allow you to replace old metal fillings with fillings that blend in with the natural shade of your teeth. 

Teeth whitening

If your primary problem is staining or discoloration, teeth whitening can restore a natural shine to your teeth. 

Invisalign®

Invisalign® is the preferred modern alternative to braces. The system aligns your teeth using a series of custom-fit plastic aligners. They’re invisible, so they’re discreet. 

What steps can I take to keep my smile looking great?

Cosmetic dental services can be time-consuming and costly, especially if you get them repeatedly. To minimize your time in the dental office, you’ll want to maintain your results as best as you can. With veneers, crowns, and fillings, caring for your teeth is as easy as caring for them before treatment. You should:

  • Brush at least twice a day
  • Floss at least once a day
  • Get dental cleanings every six months
  • Avoid solid foods and objects that can break your teeth
  • Avoid dark foods and drinks that can stain your teeth
  • Don’t smoke

If you have removable restorations or devices like traditional dentures or Invisalign®, you’ll need to learn and follow additional instructions for cleaning them. The Hartsdale Cosmetic Dentistry team gives you the cleaning and care instructions you’ll need to maintain your teeth properly.
