More than 7.6 million people live in Long Island, and many more live in the greater New York City metro area. And while it’s easy to assume that with that many people, you would simply blend into the crowd, most of us can’t help but feel like we stand out when there are aspects of our appearance we aren’t happy with. A perfect example is when you aren’t satisfied you’re your smile, and improving it is important for anyone. Doing so can help boost your self-esteem, increase your overall level of confidence, and much more.
Of course, it’s not always possible to do so with cleanings and regular care alone. Instead, you might have to consider cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry is nothing more than any type of dental procedure that is done for cosmetic purposes instead of to improve health issues or alleviate pain. Here at Shine Dental Group, we know that you can easily become confused by all of the various options out there, so taking a closer look at them is worth doing.
With that in mind, here are a few of the most common cosmetic dentistry options our patients end up choosing to brighten their smile.
- Veneers – Porcelain veneers are nothing more than a thin sheet of material that cover the front of the teeth. They’re used for purely cosmetic purposes, and can change the overall look of your teeth tremendously, improving shape, size, and color.
- Dentures – Dentures have long been used, and everything from partials to a full set of dentures are possible if you need teeth replacement. Along with restoring a healthier looking smile, dentures can also improve your ability to speak and to eat.
- Dental Implants – Today’s mini dental implants utilize smaller anchors and better technology to make them a very viable choice for anyone in need of new teeth. They offer numerous advantages over traditional dentures and are the best way to give yourself the closest thing to new teeth you can have.
- Whitening – Tooth whitening creams are sold in the store for over the counter use, but they can’t match the effects of a professional whitening session. This process helps brighten your smile and removes stains.
These are just four of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures patients elect to have done, but they cover practically every potential goal you might have in mind. To figure out which one is the best for you, don’t hesitate to contact our office today and set up your consultation. We’ll help you find the dental procedure that is right for your needs.
