The post What Does the Cosmetic Dentist in Garden City Do? appeared first on Garden City Dental Blog.
Your teeth might be perfectly healthy, but that doesn’t mean you like how they look. They may be discolored or chipped, or perhaps you have metal fillings that stick out whenever you talk or laugh. You’d be so much happier with just a few subtle changes. This is where cosmetic dentistry in Garden City
can help. Its entire focus is to make you feel better about your smile, which can make you feel better about yourself. Dr. Vastardis
knows a confident smile can do a lot for a person, and he has a variety of ways to help you get one.
A simple fact is that people like white teeth
. They seem to have the power to make someone immediately like you. However, keeping them white over time can be difficult. Factors such as coffee, wine, tobacco, diet, and even genetics can leave your teeth looking dull and discolored.
Teeth-whiteningis the easiest way to improve the color of your smile. One quick visit to the office can make your teeth 6-10 shades whiter and completely revitalize your look. We apply a highly-concentrated bleaching gel to your teeth to break up years of ground-in stains. Afterward, simple brushing and flossing, along with the occasional touch-up, can keep them sparkling for several months.
Do you have broken, discolored, or misaligned teeth?How about large, obvious gaps?You may have all of them, and separate procedures to fix each problem would be expensive and time consuming.
The better choice is to get porcelain veneers, which are able to fix and mask all of these cosmetic issues with one easy procedure. They are thin ceramic coverings that are fitted to the front of your teeth. You can get them in as little as two visits, and they’ll leave your teeth looking spectacular for years.
Everyone notices metal fillings because they are such a different color than natural teeth. Whenever Dr. Vastardis repairs a cavity, he wants the tooth to be healthy and
beautiful, and he’s able to do that with tooth-colored fillings.Rather that metal, tooth-colored fillings use a composite resin to fill in your tooth’s lost structure, all the while blending in seamlessly. Besides being completely unnoticeable, the resin is able to bond to your teeth more securely than traditional metal fillings, and requires less of your tooth to be removed. This means you get the best when it comes to look, effectiveness, and durability, all with one treatment.
Ceramic is able to better replicate a tooth’s look and strength than metal, which is why we use it for crowns and bridges. Severely damaged or completely missing teeth can be easily brought back to life and look like they’ve always been there. The ceramic is also non-porous, making the restorations practically stain-proof. You don’t just get your smile back with ceramic restorations, you get a better one.
A cosmetic dentist can do much more than just help your teeth. An attractive smile can open the world up to you, and that’s the ultimate goal for each cosmetic treatment. It takes a certain kind of expertise to accomplish this, and you can find it at Garden City Dental Associates.
