4 Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Options

Is a smile makeover on your mind? More than 25% of individuals dislike smiling because of their teeth, but thankfully, you’re not stuck with a smile that you don’t love.

Cosmetic dentistry enhances the look of your smile, and it can even improve the function of your mouth too. Cosmetic dentistry includes in-office teeth whitening treatments, Invisalign®, implants, veneers, crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays. 

Not sure which cosmetic services are right for you? Dr. David Blaustein can help you design your ideal smile right here at Chelsea Dental Aesthetics in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City.

Below, Dr. Blaustein highlights four of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options. 

1. Teeth whitening

Because stained or yellow teeth are a common complaint, professional teeth whitening treatments are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options. Professional grade treatments use stronger whitening agents than over-the-counter options. 

We’re proud to offer Zoom! whitening treatments, which can brighten your teeth by up to eight shades in about 45 minutes. 

We also offer professional take-home whitening systems. Zoom! home whitening brightens your teeth in the comfort of your home over the span of three days.

2. Porcelain veneers

Even though professional whitening treatments can turn dull smiles into dazzling ones, whitening isn’t right for everyone. Some teeth, including teeth with crowns, won’t respond to whitening. And some stains, especially ones caused by medications, are particularly stubborn. 

In these cases, your path to white teeth may be better achieved with veneers. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the front of your natural teeth. Each veneer is custom selected to help you achieve your dream smile. 

Veneers are well known for their ability to deliver a red carpet-worthy smile, but they can do so much more. Veneers can enhance the size and shape of your teeth as well as hide small cracks, gaps, and other imperfections.

3. Invisalign clear aligners 

Not happy with gaps, crowding, or crooked teeth? Invisalign clear aligners can straighten your teeth without the hassle of metal braces. Invisalign is discreet (a big win!) and comfortable. Each aligner is made from a patented, BPA-free material trimmed specifically to fit around your gums.

Invisalign can also correct minor bite issues to enhance the functionality of your mouth.

4. Dental crowns 

You might think of dental crowns in terms of dental restorations, but they have their place in cosmetic dentistry too. Dental crowns can protect a tooth after a root canal, cover misshapen teeth, serve as a prosthetic tooth in an implant, and play a big role in supporting a dental bridge.

Crowns are customizable so we can match each crown to your surrounding teeth for a seamless look.
