What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is defined as any dental procedure that involves the improvement of a person’s appearance. It’s not at all surprising that cosmetic dentistry is an art because very few are really ever satisfied with their original set of pearly whites. The ability to design, develop and deliver a beautiful smile is tantamount to the skill of the practitioner.
Cosmetic dentistry involves applying an artistic eye to smile design, at SmileByDesignNY located in the heart of Jackson Heights Queens we combine form, function and aesthetics, taking a holistic approach to your treatment. Whether you want a dazzling “Hollywood smile makeover” or a more conservative look, we can cater to your every need. For some, cosmetic dentistry may involve simply replacing an old metal filling or teeth whitening whereas for others a full mouth reconstruction with dental implants, veneers, crowns, bridgework and gum contouring may be needed to give them the smile of their dreams.
Whatever your requirements, Dr. Gary will thoroughly analyse your smile from every angle and discuss all the possible treatment options with you, giving you the opportunity to ask lots of questions. At SmileByDesignNY our mission is to provide an unparalleled level of world-class cosmetic dentistry utilising the latest technology and finest dental materials available.
You will find below a brief Smile Evaluation Quiz that can help you decide whether cosmetic dentistry is relevant to you.
