Possible Options To Undertake For Your NYC Smile Makeover

NYC smile makeover

There are a number of procedures that you can have performed for an NYC smile makeover, so it is best to speak with a dentist to learn which options are most appropriate. Some of the most popular procedures include teeth whitening, root canals, dental filings and cosmetic dentistry.

Teeth Whitening

This is a basic procedure which is non-invasive and designed to brighten teeth which are either discolored or stained. There are a number of things which can contribute to stained teeth, such as smoking cigarettes and consuming certain foods and beverages, but with teeth whitening you will have a younger, more confident looking smile. We utilize cutting edge therapies such as light activation with either xenon halogen or plasma arc lighting.

Root Canals

Root canals are a more advanced procedure which involves addressing nerve damage which has occurred inside the tooth. This can result from trauma involving the mouth or teeth, tooth decay, bacterial leakage from an aging crown, or gum disease which has become severe. The primary purpose of a root canal is to save the teeth and prevent having to extract them. During the operation the pulp within the tooth will be removed.

Dental Filings

Dental filings are used for the purpose of restoring teeth, which have become damaged or worn due to aging or trauma. In the past they mostly consisted of silver in the rear teeth and white for the front, with gold inlays sometimes being used for additional strength. Today patients have a much wider range of materials which means their teeth will look far more natural. Most contemporary filing materials will either adhere or bond to your teeth which results in sealed cavities and stronger enamel.

Cosmetic Dentistry

The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to give you a centerfold quality smile. The dentist will evaluate your teeth and oral health and will make recommendations for procedures which can make them as straight and white as possible. One of the hottest new treatments is Cfast, which is an affordable, moderately invasive technique which is designed to produce straight lower and upper teeth in adults. Specifically, it involves the aligning, leveling and rotation of teeth in a manner that is aesthetically pleasing.

Cfast is vastly superior to older dental procedures such as braces or orthodontics. For one, it is faster and less invasive, though the dentist will have to shape some of your teeth at bit so that they align correctly. However, Cfast does not require any teeth to be removed. It is broken down into three options, which are clear brace, clear aligners or invisible brace.  With clear brace the teeth will be straightened gently through wires and brackets which are tooth colored.   With clear aligner translucent positioners will be placed on the teeth which will gradually move them into the desired position, and with invisible brace brackets which are positioned within the mouth will align the four to six teeth in the front.
