When people imagine a smile transformation, most assume this means multiple procedures and a very extensive and intensive treatment plan. But we can often completely alter the smiles of patients in Astoria, NY, with conservative cosmetic treatments, many of which only take one visit to complete.
Dental bonding allows us to apply a composite resin to the tooth in multiple layers. We can then sculpt the tooth and shape it as the material cures under a light. The material can be shaded to better blend with the tooth. We can use dental bonding to mask permanent teeth stains, close gaps between teeth, and repair chipped teeth all in one visit.
As with bonding, contouring can be completed in a single visit as well. Instead of adding to the teeth, we gently buff away a small segment of outer structure. We can reshape overly pointed or malformed teeth, and also remove any pits or grooves in the tooth surface.
Veneers actually take two visits: one visit t prepare the teeth and a second visit to place the completed restorations. The veneers cover the font and sides of the teeth, allowing us to completely change the tooth’s appearance. Each one is custom-made from porcelain, a strong and lifelike material. We can use them to address the appearance of minor alignment issues, cover up permanent teeth stains, lengthen or repair worn down or damaged teeth, and close gaps between teeth.
Using the same material as dental bonding, we can address tooth decay in a single visit, restoring the function, comfort, and appearance of your tooth with a restoration that looks natural.
We will provide our patients with a set of trays and a powerful bleaching gel. Each day, they will fill the trays with gel and wear them for around 30 to 45 minutes, over a period of 1 to 2 weeks. They can then enjoy a smile brightened by multiple shades!
