Common Treatments Performed by a Cosmetic Dentist on Long Island

Though you may have a healthy mouth and teeth, you are still a little self-conscious about your smile. You might not be confident in your smile because your teeth are a little crooked, or perhaps they are not as bright as you would like them to be. Thankfully, there are plenty of elective cosmetic dentistry options available for you - such as Invisalign, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and even a smile makeover. Great Neck Family Dentist offers all of these options and more. But what sort of procedures does cosmetic dentistry entail?

Why Cosmetic Dentistry Is Needed

You may not have any pain or discomfort in your mouth, but that does not mean that you cannot benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Some people will go to extreme lengths to contort their smile, stifle their laugh, and try their very best to conceal their teeth. Lacking confidence in your smile can lead to unnecessary anxiety and self-judgments. Whether your teeth are stained or not as bright as you would like, or perhaps your teeth are a little crooked or crowded in a particular area, you can benefit from a non-invasive approach.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic Dentistry is the practice of improving the overall appearance of your mouth and teeth. Cosmetic Dentistry entails many different methods and procedures.


Invisalign can be used as an alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment, like getting braces. Dr. Liberman can outfit you with a clear, plastic retainer that covers all of your teeth. Invisalign will inconspicuously improve your bite and the straightness of your teeth. The entire procedure lasts around 18 months and is remarkably pain-free.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a very cost-effective and conservative cosmetic dentistry procedure. Dental bonding is used to conceal minor cracks or chips in the teeth. A malleable white putty is applied to the teeth and is shaped to the contours of the tooth, which then blends in perfectly with the enamel. In addition to being used as a cosmetic dentistry procedure, dental bonding can also be used in tooth decay.

Teeth Whitening

If you want to have brighter, more radiant teeth, then teeth whitening is perfect for you - it is also super easy! Dr. Liberman will customize and provide you with a take-home teeth whitening kit to gently correct stains on the teeth. The whole process takes about two weeks, but you, as the patient, have ownership of the process. If your teeth are becoming sensitive, you can ease off the whitening and return to it when your teeth feel better.

Having confidence in your smile is extremely important - you do not want to be hiding your smile in photos, at parties, or at the workplace. Our trained staff can work with you and figure out how to give you a radiant, more confident smile. Dr. Julie Liberman, DDS of Great Neck Dental Care NY, proudly serves patients of all ages in the Great Neck area, spanning New Hyde Park, Floral Park, Douglaston, Jericho, Roslyn, etc. Come to Great Neck Family Dentist and improve your confidence and smile!
