Best Cosmetic Dentist in Yonkers New York
Much of modern dentistry is the union of art and science, so we can offer our patients top-quality care that both functions and looks great. This is why patients can choose aesthetic dental procedures for any number of reasons like a malformed bite, crooked teeth, dental trauma or injury, or just to improve their confidence and overall appearance. Whatever the reason or your ultimate goal, call cosmetic dentist Dr. Ira Morrow for your treatments in Yonkers and Westchester, NY. He can help restore your beautiful smile with a few cosmetic dentistry treatments.
Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
In the past, dentists relied heavily on amalgam and metal materials for dental restorations. Today though, thanks to the invention of composite materials (plastic and glass) and ceramics, we have dental bonding, which allows the dentist to fill cavities and reshape teeth with a material that looks and feels just like the natural enamel of your teeth.
Dental Contouring and Reshaping
If you have minor defects in the shape or alignment of your teeth, Dr. Morrow can use a combination of dental contouring and reshaping treatments to correct them. He will shave down the enamel to create space or smooth the surface and use bonding material to reshape or build up an area.
Veneers are a common treatment for patients who want to enhance the appearance of their smile. Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain Dr. Morrow bonds directly to the surface of your teeth. They can correct minor imperfections and severe dental stains.
Dental stains can come from any number of things, but mostly from the foods you eat or some of your lifestyle habits. If you have extrinsic stains on your teeth, Dr. Morrow can do teeth whitening from the dental chair to brighten your smile with just one visit. Usually, patients are in and out in just under an hour and leave with a smile 8 to 10 shades lighter.
Dr. Morrow uses small caps or dental crowns to cover teeth and replace severely compromised enamel. These restorations are made in an off-site dental lab based on impressions taken by the dentist. So your crown is unique to you and matches the exact shape and color of your natural teeth.
Dental bridges consist of two crowns with a pontic (false tooth) suspended between the two. These restorations replace a missing tooth or a couple teeth in a row. Some materials used in dental bridges include porcelain, gold and other metal alloys.
Though we do not place dental implants in our office, we do restore the tops of them if your crown ever wears out. Implants are the best way to replace missing teeth, and with our help, the implant restoration can last you a lifetime.
What Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments are Right for Me?
This all depends on the end results you want and only Dr. Morrow will be able to answer that question. He will evaluate your smile and ask a series of questions to figure out your needs and expectations. You certainly have input on which procedures you prefer, and he will work with you to develop the right treatment plans to suit your needs. During the consultation, you should take the opportunity to ask Dr. Morrow a few questions, including:
- Am I a candidate for cosmetic dentistry?
- What are some realistic expectations?
- Are there any risks for cosmetic dentistry?
- What are some alternative treatments I should consider?
- How much will the recommended cosmetic dentistry treatment cost?
- What is the timeline for these dental treatments?
