As a cosmetic dentist in Jackson Heights, NY, Dr. Haim Fedida helps improve the aesthetics of his patient’s smiles. Cosmetic dental services help patients with discolored, crooked, or damaged teeth. Some patients may find that they require cosmetic care as they age. Over time, the tooth enamel can wear down, uncovering the dark dentin underlayer. Accidental chips or breaks in the teeth are normal but need to be treated to prevent infection.
Cosmetic Dental Care
Cosmetic dentistry realigns and brightens teeth and can even create a more youthful appearance:
Botox and Dermal Fillers
Dr. Fedida provides dermal fillers and Botox to patients who want to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Botox can also be used to treat headaches and facial pain caused by TMD or temporomandibular joint disorders. When injected into the face, Botox relaxes the facial muscles and smooths the skin. This treatment can relieve pain for patients with TMJ disorders.
Clear Invisalign aligners are a modern alternative to metal braces that comfortably straighten teeth over time. Traditional metal braces can irritate the gums and often come with dietary restrictions. Invisalign aligners are made of thick plastic that can be removed to brush and floss or eat. The aligners are also clear for a less noticeable and conservative treatment.
Dental veneers are made of thin porcelain ceramic shells that cover the front and sides of teeth. Stained, chipped, or otherwise damaged teeth can be restored when veneers adhere to the tooth enamel. We use dental bonding material to ensure that dental veneers are long-lasting.
Tooth bonding treatment is similar to veneers in that it treats chipped, cracked, broken teeth. However, dental bonding solely uses bonding material that is molded and cured onto the teeth. Like veneers, we can color-match the bonding material so it matches damaged teeth and remaining natural teeth.
Zoom! teeth whitening treatment is formulated with tooth sensitivity in mind. Patients can receive quick treatment in our office or receive take-home treatment. Zoom uses a whitening gel that is applied to the teeth and cured with light. This process can be repeated multiple times in our office or with trays at home. Professional teeth whitening can also brighten the tooth enamel by multiple shades.
Cosmetic Dental FAQs
Some patients may have further questions about cosmetic dental care, including:
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of the teeth, gums, and bite. As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Fedida can change the color, shape, size, and position of teeth. Cosmetic dental care is often the last step of full mouth reconstructions. After restoring teeth or removing infection, Dr. Fedida can brighten or straighten his patient’s smiles.
How can cosmetic dental care improve dental health?
Problems like crooked or discolored teeth may simply seem cosmetic. However, crooked teeth are more prone to bacteria building up in hard-to-reach areas. Straightening misaligned teeth can actually help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Additionally, many patients who undergo professional teeth whitening treatment are motivated to maintain their results. Because of this, patients tend to improve their oral hygiene for a healthier smile.
Can I receive Botox or fillers for solely facial cosmetics?
Of course! Although Botox can treat TMJ symptoms, both Botox and dermal fillers may be used to smooth wrinkles. These treatments can remove crow’s feet, smile lines, and more. Our experienced technicians precisely inject fillers or Botox into key areas of the face, creating a more youthful appearance.
