Teeth Whitening

Want to brighten your smile and boost your confidence? Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental treatment to lighten the color of your teeth and banish stubborn stains or discoloration. Bleaching agents like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide penetrate your enamel and break down those pesky stains, revealing a radiant smile. 

The benefits of teeth whitening include: 

  • A Brighter Smile: Achieve a noticeably whiter smile that can enhance your overall appearance.
  • Boosted Confidence: A whiter smile can improve self-esteem and make you feel more confident in social and professional interactions.
  • Quick Results: Professional teeth whitening can deliver significant results in just one visit, making it an ideal choice for special occasions.
  • A Safe and Effective Procedure: Performed under the supervision of a dentist, professional teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to enhance your smile.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a great way to improve your smile. These thin, custom-made shells are crafted from high-quality dental ceramic and bonded to the front of your teeth. They can address cosmetic issues like discoloration, chips, gaps, and minor misalignments, giving you a more attractive and confident smile.

The benefits of porcelain veneers include: 

  • Natural Appearance: Porcelain veneers mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth, providing a realistic and aesthetically pleasing result.
  • Durability: Made from strong, durable materials, porcelain veneers can last many years with proper care.
  • Stain Resistance: Unlike natural teeth, porcelain veneers resist staining from coffee, tea, and other common discoloring agents.
  • Customizability: Each veneer is custom-designed to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth, ensuring a perfect fit and appearance.

Smile Makeover

smile makeover combines multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures to transform your smile. This customized approach addresses various aesthetic concerns, such as discoloration, misalignment, gaps, and damaged teeth.

The benefits of a smile makeover include:

  • Personalized Treatment: A smile makeover provides a customized solution for achieving your ideal smile.
  • Comprehensive Results: This procedure can address multiple cosmetic issues simultaneously, resulting in a dramatic improvement.
  • Improved Oral Health: Many cosmetic procedures also improve oral health by correcting alignment issues and repairing damaged teeth.
  • Enhanced Confidence: A beautiful smile can significantly boost your self-esteem and improve your overall quality of life.

Prepless Veneers

Prepless veneers, also known as no-prep veneers, are a less invasive alternative to traditional veneers. These ultra-thin shells fit over your existing teeth with little to no removal of natural enamel, preserving the integrity of your teeth.

The benefits of prepless veneers include: 

  • Minimal Invasiveness: Unlike traditional veneers, prepless veneers require minimal to no enamel removal, making the procedure less invasive and more comfortable.
  • Quick Application: Applying prepless veneers is typically faster than traditional veneers, often requiring fewer visits.
  • Reversibility: Because little to no enamel is removed, prepless veneers can be a reversible option if you choose to remove them in the future.
  • Natural Look and Feel: Despite being thinner, prepless veneers offer a natural appearance and feel, blending seamlessly with your existing teeth.

What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Do for Me?

Are your teeth not as white and radiant as they used to be? Do you have a chip in a tooth or a tooth that just doesn’t seem to fit with all the others in your smile? Your smile is a big part of who you are. It is a part of you that gives that first impression of your personality. How you feel about your smile affects your confidence and how you interact with others. 

Cosmetic dentistry with Dr. Lerner or Dr. Lemongello allows you to correct discoloration that has occurred over the years. It presents the chance to create the smile of your dreams, too! Using advanced technology, modern dental materials, and an artful eye, our dentists can address the full range of cosmetic dental woes, often within one or two visits. Ultimately, cosmetic dentistry gives you back full ownership of your smile aesthetic, one treatment at a time.

How Is Cosmetic Dentistry Different From General Dentistry?

Cosmetic and general dentistry both aim to improve oral health, but they focus on different aspects. General dentistry is primarily concerned with maintaining oral health, including preventing, diagnosing, and treating oral diseases. It includes routine procedures such as: 

  • Cleanings
  • Fillings
  • Root canals
  • Extractions
  • Cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Other oral health concerns

Cosmetic dentistry aims to enhance the appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. While both types of dentistry are important, cosmetic dentistry specifically focuses on improving the visual aspects of your smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Painful?

If you’ve visited the dentist for restorative treatment like a filling or a root canal, you may have come to associate dental treatment with pain. With cosmetic dentistry, this isn’t the case. Regardless of the procedure you need to elevate your smile, our team will work to ensure your comfort. One of the reasons that dental treatments can be uncomfortable is that the dentist must use a drilling instrument to remove a portion of natural enamel. The instrument’s vibrations can stimulate the tooth’s nerve, creating discomfort. To make sure this doesn’t happen, we administer an effective injection of local anesthetic.

We hear you. “Don’t injections of dental anesthetic hurt?” They don’t have to. We are mindful of every aspect of the care we provide. We give our anesthetic injections after we’ve applied a topical anesthetic to numb the area. Those once-painful injections turn into a momentary nuisance. Once you’ve received the local anesthetic, the area should be nicely numbed and ready for a smile-boosting treatment!

Are There Any Risks Associated with Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is generally safe, but some risks are involved, such as sensitivity or damage to the teeth. Before starting a treatment, our dentists will discuss all potential risks and benefits with you.

Will My Cosmetic Dentistry Results Look Natural?

Modern cosmetic dentistry techniques and materials mimic the natural appearance of teeth. We aim to give you results that look as real as possible.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Suitable for All Ages?

Cosmetic dentistry can benefit patients of various ages. However, certain procedures may be more appropriate for adults with fully developed teeth and gums.

Are Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Safe?

Yes, cosmetic dentistry procedures are safe when performed by an experienced dentist. We use biocompatible materials and advanced techniques for utmost safety and effectiveness.

Can I Get Cosmetic Dentistry if I Have Existing Dental Issues?

Before considering cosmetic treatments, we should address existing dental issues, such as cavities or gum disease. We’ll create a comprehensive treatment plan for you to get optimal results.

Maintaining good oral hygiene, avoiding staining foods and beverages, and regular dental check-ups are essential for preserving the results of your cosmetic dentistry procedures. We’ll provide specific maintenance tips based on your cosmetic treatment.
