The Different Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

You might not have any severe pain, and your overall dental health may be fine, but you are still not confident in your smile. You find that you hold back those big smiles in pictures and let loose a laugh with friends. You do not need to go any longer lacking confidence in your smile. Dr. Liberman at Great Neck Family Dentist offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures, all of which can improve your smile and help restore some confidence!

Who is Cosmetic Dentistry For?

Unlike restorative dentistry, where there needs to be some dysfunction and pain in the mouth, cosmetic dentistry can be for anyone. If you have some crooked teeth, stains, or other superficial issues with your mouth and teeth, then cosmetic dentistry is right for you. Cosmetic dentistry is not invasive and does not entail extensive reconstructive procedures, such as surgery. However, like any successful dental procedure, cosmetic dentistry requires patience and diligence from the patient.

Teeth Whitening

Dr. Liberman and her team utilize a take-home teeth whitening kit for teeth whitening. The teeth whitening kit is used for patients who would like to remove some stains on their teeth, resulting in a brighter and more radiant smile. Great Neck Family Dentist will outfit you with a bleaching gel that will gently lift any stains out of your teeth over the course of two weeks. One thing that is great about how Dr. Liberman whitens your teeth is that you have complete ownership over the process. If the bleaching gel is bothering your teeth, you can modify the whitening schedule to accommodate your comfort levels. You can skip a day or two and adjust your schedule. Teeth whitening should not be a painful process!

Porcelain Veneers

If you have hard to remove teeth stains, minor cracks or issues in teeth alignment, then porcelain veneers might be a good solution for you. Porcelain veneers work by binding to your tooth that you are concerned about. The porcelain blends in seamlessly with the enamel of your teeth, so you do not need to worry about the porcelain veneers sticking out or being too noticeable. With conscientious dental hygiene, you do not need to worry about the porcelain veneers wearing down - they can last for years with the proper care!

What are the Next Steps?

If any of the above procedures or other cosmetic dentistry procedures that Dr. Liberman and Great Neck Family Dentist offer appeal to you, then Dr. Liberman and her team will begin with an initial consultation. During this initial consultation, Dr. Liberman will ask you what your goals are, any relevant medical history, your budget, and dental history. An in-depth examination will follow, in which Dr. Liberman will assess your teeth and evaluate which cosmetic dentistry procedure makes the most sense for you. Dr. Liberman may also take images and x-rays, so she has an accurate understanding of the anatomy of your mouth. If you or your family are in need of a dentist, please take a visit to Dr. Liberman and her team at Great Neck Family Dentist. Dr. Liberman has been reliably serving the Great Neck and Nassau County community for years and many more years to come.
