Are you interested in getting a more beautiful smile?
The cosmetic dentist Dr. Eugene Porcelli at Garden City Family Dental in Garden City, NY, knows the importance of a healthy-looking smile. Here are some procedures he offers:
Your Garden City dentist provides a convenient in-office procedure that doesn't take long. He applies gel with high-concentration of hydrogen peroxide on your teeth for a few minutes and, if necessary, a laser is used to speed up the process. The gel may be removed then reapplied to your teeth several times throughout the one-hour treatment.
Dental implants are state-of-the-art installations used to restore missing teeth and improve the function and aesthetics of your teeth. The process of getting a dental implant is quite simple. One of your Garden City dentist applies local anesthesia to the problem area and places a titanium post that will act as the tooth's root. After several months the implant will fuse with the jawbone, and a dental crown can be placed.
Dental veneers are another great cosmetic procedure, as they are used to fix misshapen and discolored teeth, as well as minor gaps between them. Your dentist will remove some enamel from the surface of your teeth then cement custom-made shells called veneers on top. Your dentist removes this enamel so that you won't feel as though your veneers are protruding once they have been installed, and will instead feel smooth and properly aligned with the rest of your teeth.
Dental Bonding and Reshaping
Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite resin, are used during dental bonding and reshaping procedures. The composite resin that matches the color of your teeth is applied and molded to the right shape, and then hardened using a curing light.
Dental bonding can fix issues such as:
- Chips and cracks
- Discolored and stained teeth
- Short teeth
