Top 4 Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures in NYC

Studies have proven the intrinsic benefits of a winning smile. Straight white teeth and a beautiful smile convey confidence, authority and happiness, which can have a large impact on your social and professional life. If you have been bothered by discolored, oddly shaped or missing teeth, and yearn for a more radiant smile, there are several effective treatments that work wonders and are also surprisingly affordable. At Chelsea Dental Aesthetics, Dr. David Blaustein and his staff offer the latest advances in cosmetic dentistry that can help boost self-esteem, while addressing aesthetic and functional concerns. Read more about some of our most popular smile makeover procedures.

Four ways to enhance your smile

  1. Tooth replacement – Injury or accident can lead to tooth loss, which can severely lower one’s self-confidence and ability to eat and speak properly. Whatever the reason, an experienced cosmetic dentist can replace missing teeth with permanent and semi-permanent restorations such as dental implants and bridges. Using state-of-the-art technology, these procedures are now minimally invasive and virtually pain-free. Both options restore your ability to chew and speak properly, while relieving embarrassment and discomfort. While porcelain bridges are more economical, dental implants can last a lifetime and are generally considered the best choice in terms of convenience and overall appearance.
  2. Laser teeth whitening– Besides missing teeth, one of the biggest complaints among patients is discolored teeth. Oftentimes, this is caused by staining agents found in foods and drinks (coffee, red wine, acidic foods), but yellow or gray-tinged teeth can also result from smoking, certain prescription antibiotics and genetics. For most patients, a change of three shades lighter will make a noticeable difference, but one that isn’t too fake-looking. Zoom teeth whitening is a quick, fully-customized treatment that takes less than an hour and produces impressive results. Your dentist will select the whitening concentration based on your current shade, sensitivity level and desired result. Zoom laser tooth whitening is one of the fastest and easiest ways to fully transform your smile.
  3. Porcelain veneers – In some cases, teeth are so severely discolored, damaged, misshapen or worn down that the only solution is to cover imperfections with a tooth-colored restoration. The most desirable are porcelain veneers, which are praised for their durability, beauty and stain-resistant qualities. Each veneer is custom made to deliver the most natural appearance possible. And unlike crowns, which require that the affected tooth be significantly grown down, veneers require only minimal etching prior to application. They last for years and are incredibly easy to maintain.
  4. Tooth-colored fillings – Gone are the days of amalgam fillings. While long-lasting, this type of tooth restoration is unattractive, especially when the silver is visible in the front teeth. Today’s cosmetic dentists use composite or white fillings to address tooth decay. Replacing amalgam with tooth-colored fillings is a simple way to achieve a more aesthetically-pleasing smile.
