Composite Tooth-Colored Fillings
When Park Slope cosmetic dentist Dr. Sapienza finds that one of your teeth has a cavity then he will want to repair that tooth as quickly as possible, because tooth decay can spread within a tooth as well as to other teeth. Fortunately, dental technology and materials have come a long way since the time when having a filling meant having a dark silver spot in your smile. Today, we use tooth-colored fillings made of composite resin to fill cavities. This material not only blends in with your natural tooth color, but also is stronger and more durable than a metal filling.
Sometimes decay can be so extensive or damage may be so severe that a tooth requires full coverage in order to have adequate protection. In these cases, your Park Slope cosmetic dentist will recommend a porcelain crown. Also called a dental cap, a crown snuggly covers a tooth from the biting surface, around the sides and down to the gum line. With a porcelain crown, your tooth will look and function as well as a healthy natural tooth.
Let’s say several different cosmetic flaws mar your smile. Perhaps you have a few teeth that are permanently stained. A few are chipped or broken, while still others are crooked or have unsightly gaps between them. Repairing each flaw would require a number of procedures… unless you choose porcelain veneers. With porcelain veneers, Dr. Sapienza can cover up your bothersome teeth and give you a completely new and beautiful smile. Veneers are micro-thin layers of dental porcelain that are expertly crafted in a dental lab. Dr. Sapienza carefully bonds the veneers to your teeth to give you a smile that is better than you ever imagined.
One of fastest, simplest and most cost-effective treatments for cosmetic dentistry in Park Slope is teeth whitening. At The Dental Spa of New York, we offer both in-office whitening and take-home whitening. With our in-office system, the whitening gel is applied to your teeth and in less than an hour you’ll walk out of our office with a smile that is several shades whiter than when you walked in. This treatment is perfect for when you have a special occasion that demands your best smile.
Take-home whitening works just as well, but does require more time to develop your whitest smile.
Dr. Sapienza and the team at The Dental Spa of New York would be delighted to assess your cosmetic dentistry needs. The cosmetic dentist Park Slope trusts conveniently serves patients from the surrounding communities of Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Prospect Heights and Carroll Gardens and other areas of Brooklyn and Queens.
