What is Cosmetic Dentistry and What Does it Consist Of?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that can include many different procedures but they are all interested in a similar outcome: improving the appearance of a person’s mouth and teeth. Unlike restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry is entirely optional. In restorative dentistry, a patient does not have much of a choice whether or not the procedure is right for them; the patient is in a lot of pain or the function of their mouth is reduced.

Cosmetic dentistry is interested in providing the patient with a smile that they are confident in. Dr. Liberman at Great Neck Dental Care offers a host of cosmetic dentistry procedures. Keep reading and pay a visit to Dr. Liberman to see if any of these procedures are right for you!

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an extremely affordable and popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Dental bonding is used to conceal any minor cracks or chips in a patient’s tooth. Dr. Liberman will apply a malleable, enamel-colored putty to the affected area. The resin is then carefully molded to the contours and nuances of the tooth. The putty then dries, returning the tooth to its original state. Dental bonding is typically a cosmetic procedure, but Dr. Liberman can also use dental bonding in instances of tooth decay.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that is similar to dental bonding. Porcelain veneers are used to correct any minor cracks, chips, deep-set stains, or alignment issues. The porcelain veneers blend in perfectly with the enamel of your teeth. With proper care, the porcelain veneers that Dr. Liberman and her team use can last up to years - all the while being resistant to stains!


If you are a bit older and want straighter teeth but do not want the appearance of braces, then Invisalign is perfect for you. This alternative to a traditional orthodontic approach can correct the alignment of your teeth in just 18 months. Invisalign is a series of transparent trays that fit right over your teeth. The transparency of the trays allows them to be totally inconspicuous while providing you with straighter teeth and a more confident appearance.

Your First Visit

If you think Dr. Liberman’s cosmetic dentistry procedures sound right for you, then you should pay her and her team a visit at Great Neck Dental Care. During the first visit, Dr. Liberman will ask you a series of questions about your medical history and what your dentistry goals are. Based off of what you two discussed during your first visit, Dr. Liberman will come up with a solution that makes sense for your specific needs. Dr. Liberman may also need to take x-rays and intraoral photos. Whatever your needs and desires are, do not hesitate to pay Dr. Liberman and her team at Great Neck Dental Care a visit. Dr. LIberman has the resources and experience to provide you and your family with the quality dental care that you need.
