Cosmetic Dentistry in Hudson Valley, NY

Do you have a smile that’s less than perfect? Come in for a consultation and find out how our dentists can help improve your smile.

Some types of cosmetic dental services are similar to restorative dental services. The difference is that restorative dental services focus on restoring the functionality of the tooth. Cosmetic dental services are equally concerned with the appearance of the tooth.

Here is a look at some of the most common types of cosmetic dental services:

Teeth Whitening:

Teeth whitening is used to restore discolored teeth to their natural tooth color. There are many products and methods that can remove years of stains and discoloration from teeth. READ MORE

Veneers:

Dental veneers are thin shells made of plastic that are placed over patients’ teeth to protect them from surface damage or to improve their aesthetic appearance. Veneers are frequently used with chipped teeth, cracked teeth, or stained teeth. They are hard and durable, so you can eat normally. The cosmetic dentist will ensure the veneer matches your natural tooth shade and translucency, so people won’t even know you have one. Best of all, porcelain veneers do not stain the way teeth do, and can last between seven and 20 years. READ MORE

Composite Bonding:

Composite bonding is an excellent way to fix chipped teeth. Our dentists use a tooth-colored material to bond to the healthy tooth structure and replace the missing tooth structure. The restoration can be made in a wide range of tooth colors and translucency so it can match the rest of the tooth. Not only does a bonded restoration look good, it also can improve the strength of the chipped tooth.

Tooth-Colored Fillings:

Our cosmetic dentists in Hudson Valley use tooth-colored fillings instead of metal fillings. These white, resin composite fillings can be matched to the exact shade of the tooth. They don’t contain any metal so they’ll never corrode. Best of all, the dentist does not need to drill as much of the healthy tooth in order to place the tooth-colored filling. READ MORE

Inlays and Onlays:

Inlays and onlays are frequently used when too much of the tooth structure has been damaged by a cavity for a filling to repair it, but the damage is not severe enough to warrant a crown. Inlays are “inlayed” in the biting surface of the tooth, while an onlay “lays on” the biting surface and one or more of the missing peaks of the tooth, which are called cusps. Both are natural-looking and can be matched to the exact color of your tooth.

Porcelain Crowns:

A porcelain crown is an all-ceramic crown that caps a tooth that has been damaged by dental decay or trauma. There is no metal in it, so you don’t have to worry about corroding, staining, or discoloration along the gum line. Also, the crowns are bio-compatible, so people don’t have allergic reactions to all-porcelain crowns like they might to crowns that contain metal. Porcelain crowns are strong; they can withstand the pressure caused by biting and chewing. Plus, porcelain crowns are aesthetic; they are translucent, like a natural tooth, and the color is matched to your other teeth.

Porcelain Bridgework:

Our cosmetic dentists in Hudson Valley can replace a missing tooth or teeth with an aesthetically-pleasing porcelain bridge, which contains porcelain crowns on either side of the hole, and porcelain replacement teeth in the middle. READ MORE

Dental Implants:

One of the most popular cosmetic dental services, dental implants replace missing teeth. The implant post mimics the root of a tooth, providing strength and preserving the jaw bone so it doesn’t recede. Then it is topped by a crown. The result is a beautiful, natural-looking tooth that no one will know is not real. Dental implants can also anchor bridges and dentures, providing stability and strength. READ MORE

Invisalign:

Many adults choose Invisalign clear aligners to straighten their teeth. The nearly-invisible aligners are custom-fit to the teeth, making them almost impossible to see. READ MORE

Traditional & Clear Braces:

If you have crooked teeth or another problem impacting tooth alignment, braces are a tried-and-true cosmetic dental service. Traditional braces are made out of high-quality stainless steel, while clear or tooth-colored ceramic braces are more aesthetically-pleasing. READ MORE

Cosmetic Gum Surgery:

Minor gum surgery can reshape gum tissue to improve your smile’s overall appearance. A cosmetic dentist or periodontist can shape the gums with either traditional dental tools or with a dental laser. This surgery is particularly effective for repairing gummy smiles, uneven gum lines, and frenectomies.
