Cosmetic Services at Lake Grove Dentistry
When a patient comes to our Lake Gove practice looking to improve the appearance of their teeth, our front office staff gives them a questionnaire to fill out. This questionnaire helps narrow down which specific aspects about their smile they would like to change.
Then Dr. Shah examines your dental anatomy so she may see what dental services will best benefit you and help you reach your goals in the smallest timeframe possible. Depending on what you would like to correct or resolve, our dentist may recommend any of the following treatments:
Teeth Whitening- At Lake Grove Dentistry, we utilize two renowned brands of teeth whitening treatment. Opalescence® and Zoom!® are both known for their ability to brighten people’s teeth by several shades. Our practice provides take-home systems for both of these brands, so patients may improve their smile in the convenience of their home. Those who choose to undergo teeth whitening treatment are given custom trays that ensure a secure fit and even distribution of the bleaching agent.
Veneers and Lumineers®- When you have minor imperfections like chips, cracks, gaps between teeth, and discoloration underneath the enamel, you may not want to undergo extensive or invasive procedures to correct these issues. That is why Dr. Shah provides porcelain veneers and Lumineers. These thin shells of porcelain conceal dental flaws in an effective, but non-invasive manner. The difference between the two is that porcelain veneers require preparation of the tooth, while Lumineers are considered prepless.
Invisalign® clear aligners- Patients who wish to straighten their teeth without having to wear bulky, noticeable metal-wired braces can do so with Invisalign. This orthodontic system is discreet, allowing patients to attend social events or gatherings without feeling like others’ eyes are on their smile. Invisalign clear aligners also provide the added convenience of removability, letting patients enjoy their favorite foods without having to worry about damaging their appliances.
Dr. Shah enjoys watching people’s faces light up once they begin seeing improvement in the aesthetic of their smile. That is why patients can choose to have before and after photos taken of their teeth, to show them how far they have come during different segments of treatment. Our dentist also shows patients the results others have achieved in the past from the dental services they have chosen to undergo.
