What do dental implants, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and dental bonding all have in common? Besides all being treatments for improving the look of your teeth, they can be combined to produce our cosmetic smile makeovers. Here at the practice of Ralph Tarantino, D.M.D., there is no reason for you to settle for less than the best your smile can look.
Come in for a consultation and examination. Everyone’s needs, preferences, and goals are going to be unique, and our cosmetic dentist in Staten Island will tailor a treatment plan to match up with yours. You may not need all four aspects of the makeover, of course, but the highest priority among them all is to replace missing teeth, especially if they’re ones that show when you show off your smile. Why implants instead of a bridge or dentures? Because of their construction, implants look and feel like real teeth, and our cosmetic dentist in Staten Island wants you to have a result that is as natural as can be. Teeth whitening turns all your teeth a uniformly bright shade; the brilliant hue that they should be, rather than being stained, discolored or dull. What remains can be a lot, including chipped teeth, wide gaps separating your teeth, too much gum tissue showing, and teeth that are misshapen, crooked, or poorly sized. Bonding is done with composite resin material that is applied soft so it can be molded. It is then hardened with a special light. Veneers are thin shells that are placed over the fronts of your teeth. Depending on your specific circumstances, one or the other might be most appropriate. Or you might be best off with using both to each address particular issues.
When you come in to see our cosmetic dentist in Staten Island, you’ll be taking a first and important step in upgrading the appearance of your smile. Why not contact us now to schedule an appointment?
