Do you like the smile you see in the mirror each morning? Or maybe you’ve never taken your smile seriously before the advent of the “selfie.” Since the “trout pout” is out, you want to show your teeth. Now each time you capture a moment with your smart phone, your chipped front tooth is the first thing you see. Or you might be missing a tooth or have spaces between your teeth. Make 2016 the year you look into cosmetic dentistry with Drs. Boyd. It can change your life.
Let’s go over Cosmetic Dentistry Basics
VENEERS are very thin and are custom-designed from durable porcelain. The laminates are layered over the top of your front teeth to hide common flaws like spacing between teeth, chipped or worn teeth, poorly shaped or crooked teeth, or permanently discolored teeth. Veneers cover the front sides of your teeth – changing their color and shape. And because each veneer is custom-designed with your smile’s shape and color in mind, they complement your appearance and naturally blend in. The process usually takes between two and three visits to complete. When your veneer procedure is complete, you’ll look forward to proudly smiling with added confidence. With proper care and maintenance, you’ll enjoy your beautiful results for years to come.
TEETH WHITENING is perhaps the most commonly requested cosmetic dental procedure. Whether your teeth are stained or discolored, Zoom!™ teeth whitening improves your smile! Midtown Manhattan Drs. Boyd offer two kinds of whitening: in-office and at-home whitening. Each are different, yet each produce professional results that dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Most dental practices have hygienists do the Zoom!™ treatments. At Drs. Boyd, our NYC dentists do the treatments themselves. There’s not an actress, actor, newscaster, professional athlete out there that are not enjoying the amazing benefits of sparkling smile whitening.
TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS are great for two reasons. They help with the overall health of the teeth involved as well as the beauty of one’s smile. Tooth-colored fillings are also called “white fillings” or “composites.” They are dental fillings that restore and mimic the natural appearance of your tooth. They not only restore teeth that have fractured or decayed, but they also may also be used cosmetically to change the size, color and shape of teeth. At Drs. Boyd we blend shades to create a color close to identical to that of the actual tooth. Composites bond to the tooth and support the remaining tooth structure. This helps prevent breakage and protects the tooth from excessive temperature changes. Just think no more dark-colored silver-filled teeth when you open wide in song or laughter!
ALL-CERAMIC CROWNS have a natural appearance that allow them to blend in with the rest of your smile. Our all-ceramic crowns are in contrast to other types of metal containing crowns. They are made from a translucent, thinner material which is bio-compatible which makes it easy on gum tissue, enabling it to grow back alongside the crown. After your restoration, your smile will be your crowning glory!
INVISALIGN™ is for people of all ages. It not only corrects an irregular bite, improving crooked or crowded teeth, but it also has the ability to keep your gums healthy, correct jaw disorders, and improve the look of your teeth.
Using clear plastic aligners that are customized to your teeth, the process gradually moves your teeth into place. The Invisalign™ aligners are made of smooth BPA-free plastic, so they are safe and comfortable. The best part is you can still enjoy your favorite foods because you remove the aligners when you eat. Our Midtown Manhattan practice is pleased to offer AcceleDent Aura to speed up our patients’ orthodontic treatment. It’s clinically proven to speed up the movement of your teeth by 50 percent. The appliance provides micropulses to gently accelerate the movement of your teeth as they are guided by your orthodontics. It’s a win-win for you and your new 2016 smile!
DENTAL IMPLANTS are a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. In addition to helping patients replace a single tooth with a dental implant, Drs. Boyd can replace a few teeth or even a full row of teeth. Your implant-retained bridge or denture is custom-crafted for your needs and will feel like a natural part of your smile once it’s in place. Implants are more lifelike and natural than what you can get with traditional prosthetics. They mimic nature’s design, with a crown to replace your missing tooth, and a titanium implant that takes the place of your missing tooth root. All in all the results are strong, functional, and best of all beautiful!
