With the constant media coverage of celebrities, many Staten Island dental patients are interested in having a smile like the stars. With an experienced dentist and the right smile makeover procedures, anyone can have a smile they want to show off.
Many smile makeovers include teeth whitening. There are a variety of ways this can be done. Most Staten Island drugstores sell over-the-counter whitening strips and gels. Your general dentist can recommend an effective one, or he or she may offer in-office bleaching. This is a quick way to see whiter teeth in less than an hour.
For missing teeth, most Staten Island cosmetic dentists will recommend a dental implant. Because a dental implant is anchored into the jawbone, it looks and feels just like a natural tooth. A dental implant prevents jawbone recession and the shifting of adjacent teeth.
Porcelain veneers are especially popular in the Staten Island area. They cover the front of the teeth and are custom-made for each individual patient. These are useful for patients who have broken or chipped teeth, stained teeth, or gaps between teeth that they would like to hide.
Enamel shaping, bonding, and braces are other successful treatments that can be used to help your teeth look their best.
