The teeth that appear when you smile play an important role in many of your facial expressions. Tooth enamel that has been discolored by stains or damaged by physical imperfections can have an impact on your self-image. In a scenario like this our dentist, Dr. Matthew Scaffa can help talk with you about your cosmetic dentistry options.

Two options for improving your smile include a teeth-whitening procedure, or dental veneers. Both of these options are effective ways to address dental stains or naturally discolored tooth enamel. The whitening treatment is designed to safely remove dental stains from your tooth enamel without harming your mouth. Afterward, the dentist will talk with you about the best ways to keep your dazzling smile.

Dental veneers are created in a state of the art dental lab from either dental grade porcelain or composite resin, which is shaded to resemble your natural tooth enamel. They will be made to fit seamlessly over your tooth. If you have a misshapen tooth or one of your teeth has been affected by a significant physical defect, our dentist may suggest restoring it with a porcelain dental crown.

If you live in the Staten Island, New York, area and you are unhappy with your smile’s appearance, you should call 718-948-4393 to set up a cosmetic dentistry consultation at Dental Arts Center.
