When you glance in the mirror, do you notice teeth that are chipped, crooked, misshaped, or discolored? Even one tooth out of position or disproportionate to the rest of your smile can make even the healthiest smile seem unhealthy and unattractive. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Your smile can have either a positive or negative impact on your self-esteem. If you avoid smiling for photos or you are just uncomfortable about your smile, you may be a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry.
At Celebrity Dental, we can give you the smile of a movie star. After meeting with you to discuss your concerns, Dr. Novick will create a treatment plan designed to meet your cosmetic goals. Having a brighter and more beautiful smile can take years of your appearance and boost your self-confidence.
As we age, our teeth will lose their sparkle and start to look dull or yellowish. While routine dental cleanings and good oral hygiene can help improve their appearance, sometimes teeth whitening is necessary to remove dental stains and brighten teeth. Because enamel is porous, the foods and beverages you consume can have a direct impact on their appearance. If you are a frequent consumer of coffee, tea, chocolate, dark sodas, or tomato-based products, you may notice darker than normal teeth.
When stains affect the outer layer of the tooth, we offer take-home whitening trays and prescription strength whitening gel that can be used in the comfort of your home. These trays are based off of impression taken of your smile to ensure a custom fit. With consistent wear just 30 minutes to an hour a day, you will notice a smile by up to several shades brighter in just two weeks time.
When dental stains are more stubborn, and you have teeth that are also chipped, crooked, gapped, or cracked, Dr. Novick provides dental bonding to conceal a number of tooth imperfections. This cosmetic dentistry treatment uses shade-matched composite resin and is less invasive and more affordable than porcelain veneers.
Overly long teeth or teeth with chipped edges can cause your smile to appear unbalanced. By gently filing down the edges of your teeth, Dr. Novick can create a more symmetrical smile.
Gums are intended to frame teeth and enhance their beauty. Even the straightest teeth can look crooked or disproportionate if the gum line is imbalanced. If you have an uneven gum line or a “gummy smile” caused by excess tissue that is detracting from the beauty of your smile, Dr. Novick can remove excess tissue to create a beautifully contoured smile.
For patients looking for a longer-lasting approach to dental bonding, we offer Lumineers. These minimal prep porcelain veneers are bonded to the front surface of teeth to conceal chips, gaps, stains, misalignment, and a variety of other imperfections. Customized to match the aesthetics of each patient’s smile, these ultra thin shells deliver durable and lifelike results. Compared to traditional porcelain veneers, there is little to no enamel removal required, so if ever you desire to reverse the treatment you can do so without compromising your teeth.
