Your smile is important. It’s one of the first things you notice when you meet someone. A whiter, brighter smile is beautiful. It can help you feel better about yourself and make a memorable impression. Your lifestyle and the aging process can stain and darken your teeth. Many things we do on a regular basis can contribute to stained teeth, such as drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine or smoking. Whitening can get your smile looking its best.
We offer several in-office whitening services: the one hour Zoom! whitening system, the two visit Deep Bleaching Ultra-Whitening System and our unique $250 fifteen minute QuickWhite Maintenance Whitening. All our whitening services are preceded by our exclusive Diamond Dust Polishing Paste treatment.
Dental Bonding is the procedure of applying a composite resin that matches tooth color and is hardened with a bright light to repair tooth decays, chipped and discolored teeth. You would be surprised to learn how many of our celebrated clients have chosen bonding. Its durability may only be eight years, and it may require continued maintenance, but it offers flexibility and easier resolution to smile problems.
Porcelain Veneers consist of thin pieces of porcelain that are placed over the front surfaces of teeth to replicate a natural look of teeth to improve appearance. If very dark stains need to be masked or if existing porcelain crowns need to be matched, porcelain veneers may be the treatment of choice. Porcelain veneers are extremely durable, and you will be able to eat almost everything. Through the years at the New York Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we have provided over 35,000 porcelain veneers with an average life span of eighteen years. Some have lasted as long as twenty-five years.
Crowns are restorations that are used to cover a tooth or dental implant for cosmetic reasons but they also can strengthen fractured teeth an act as a replacements for large fillings. Porcelain crowns are matched to the natural color of your teeth so they blend in perfectly.
Bridges are used as replacements for one or multiple missing teeth and they are attached to dental implants. Bridges are similar to dentures in the sense that they act as replacement teeth but bridges are permanent and dentures are removable. Like crowns, porcelain bridges are a great choice because they can be color matched to the color of existing teeth.
Dental implants are a great choice if you are missing one or more than tooth. Teeth are not solely responsible for chewing; they also help to define our facial features. Missing teeth can drastically affect your appearance but dental implants can prevent this. Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed into the gum line so that replacement teeth can be supported. Dental implants can also be used to support dentures as well as crowns and bridges once the implants integrate with the jawbone.
Invisalign allows doctors to improve alignment of teeth using a series of aligners, which are customized for each patient. They have become increasing popular for alignment correction due to them being removable, clear, comfortable and being almost invisible. The doctors at NYCCD are certified Invisalign providers and have achieved the highest level of accreditation in the field.
Professional teeth cleaning by a dentist is recommended every six months but can vary depending on oral health. Dental cleanings help to remove all the built up plaque and bacteria that everyday brushing and flossing misses (or can’t reach). Dental cleanings begin with a complete oral examination which may include: gum evaluation, checking the bite, and an oral cancer screening. The cleaning process is comprised of plaque and stain removal, a fluoride treatment, teeth polishing, and flossing.
Dental cleanings are very important for maintaining healthy teeth, don’t fall behind on your bi-annual cleanings!
