Once you have achieved healthy teeth and gums, we look forward to discussing how we can make your smile really sparkle. From porcelain veneers to gum recontouring, professional teeth whitening, and more, we are pleased to offer a range of cosmetic services. If you are not completely satisfied with the appearance of your smile, let the Drs. Boyd in Midtown East, NY help with cosmetic dentistry.
Smile makeovers are possible with porcelain veneers. These wafer-thin coverings remake the appearance of cosmetically flawed teeth, essentially giving the teeth that show when you smile a “do-over.” Dental porcelain is a material that looks and feels just like the natural tooth enamel, with one key difference – it is highly resistant to stains and discoloration. With porcelain veneers, your teeth stay the same beautiful shade of white for years to come.
Porcelain veneers are a good option for correcting the following issues:
When cared for properly, porcelain veneers can last for more than a decade. Most people are good candidates for the treatment, so discuss your eligibility for veneers with the Drs. Boyd today.
When aesthetics are a primary concern, like for cracked, broken, or functionally flawed front teeth, all-ceramic crowns provide a beautiful solution. These natural-looking restorations bring back the form and function of damaged teeth that show when you smile. Ceramic crowns blend very well with the surrounding teeth and can last for many years with proper care.
Even the smallest dental chips, stains, and gaps may deflate a person’s confidence when they spot them in the bathroom mirror. If you are looking for a fast and effective way to correct imperfections, talk to our dentists about the possibility of undergoing direct bonding. Direct bonding features the same material we use for fillings: tooth-colored composite resin. It will be applied to the affected tooth, sculpted into an aesthetically pleasing shape that hides the flaw, and cemented in place with a curing light. In most cases, this entire process will only require one appointment of your time.
Contrary to popular belief, traditional braces aren’t the only way to achieve a straighter, more uniform smile. At Drs. Boyd, we’re happy to offer Invisalign® clear aligners for teenagers and adults! With this modern system, there are no silver brackets, dark-colored wires, or noticeable elastics to worry about. Instead, patients wear a series of customized, removable aligners that are crafted from see-through plastic so that they blend in with natural enamel. This way, Invisalign helps you improve your appearance without taking anything away from it during the treatment process!
There’s no way to prevent the teeth from growing darker with age. Exposure to coffee, red wine, and other highly pigmented foods and beverages really takes a toll on the shade of your smile. Professional teeth whitening rejuvenates your teeth for a younger, better-looking appearance.
The Drs. Boyd offers in-office and take-home whitening treatments so you can whiten at the pace you are comfortable with. In-office whitening with ZOOM! is completed in just one visit to our office, while our available take-home systems, including Opalescence and Phillips Nitewhite, offer professional-strength results over the course of a few weeks.
If too much gum tissue is covering up your front teeth, you’ve got what we call a gummy smile. With the precise, efficient soft tissue laser, your doctor can gently remove the excess gum tissue and reveal the beautiful tooth enamel that is hiding behind it. Most gum recontouring procedures are completed in just one visit, and the recovery is usually brief.
Do you ever wonder what your smile would look like if it was whiter, straighter, or free of frustrating flaws? With digital imaging technology, the Drs. Boyd can provide patients with a sneak peek of the future. All we’ll need is a current photo of you with your teeth showing, and adjustments can be made to reflect the positive changes of services like teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, direct bonding, and even Invisalign. This way, our patients can pursue the cosmetic makeover of their dreams with total confidence.
