Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry encompasses all procedures designed primarily to enhance the visual appearance of your teeth or gums. Thanks to today’s sophisticated technology and materials, just about any cosmetic oral flaw can be corrected, from discoloration to gaps between teeth.

What are among the most common cosmetic procedures performed at your practice?

At Lake Success Dental Care we offer a full array of cosmetic dental procedures to help patients achieve their desired aesthetic goals. Some of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures are:

  • Teeth whitening. We can brighten tooth color up to 16 shades.
  • Veneers. These are wafer thin porcelain shell that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. They can correct many issues, including; discoloration, a misshapen tooth, and the appearance of gaps between teeth.
  • Crowns. A crown is a cap that covers the entire visible portion of your tooth and is used to provide protection or improve the shape or alignment of a tooth.
  • Dental implants. A dental implant is a natural looking and functioning permanent replacement for a missing tooth. It’s made of a titanium post that’s surgically implanted into the patient’s jaw bone, with a porcelain crown affixed above the gum line.
  • Invisalign®. Invisalign are invisible braces that provide orthodontic treatment through a series of clear, removable trays. These thin plastic trays gradually realign teeth. Unlike metal braces, the Invisalign system is pain-free. Another benefit is that the trays can be removed to eat, brush and floss. 

How popular are cosmetic dental procedures?

A great smile can instill confidence and boost personal and professional success. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Americans spend about $2.7 billion each year on cosmetic dentistry, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. More than half of cosmetic dentistry patients (56%) are between the ages 31-60.
