How you feel about your smile has a major impact on how you feel about yourself. Dr. Cederbaum has over 30 years experience in cosmetic dentistry, and she really enjoys helping people improve their smile. Over the years, she’s seen how much we can improve a patient’s quality of life by helping them enhance their smile.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry consists of a number of procedures designed to enhance the shape, color, and alignment of your smile. Dr. Cederbaum’s goal is to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. That’s why your consultation with her is so important. She’ll take the time to listen and give you the opportunity to specify what you’re looking for. Then she’ll outline your options and the two of you will devise your treatment plan. This could turn out to be a single procedure such as veneers or it could be a smile makeover that involves a number of treatments. Ultimately, it’s up to you. Three of our most popular cosmetic treatments are veneers, professional teeth whitening, and dental bonding.
Veneers are thin layers called shells that Dr. Cederbaum attaches to the front your teeth using special dental adhesives. They immediately enhance the look of your smile by correcting various issues such as broken, crooked, or chipped teeth. If your teeth have uneven surfaces, veneers can eliminate the craters or bulges. Small gaps between teeth are another issue that can be repaired using veneers. Some people have severely stained teeth that are resistant to even the most advanced whitening procedures, but this is another issue that’s easily remedied with veneers. Our veneers are made of porcelain, which creates a bright and lustrous hue you’ll be proud to show off.
Professional Whitening Treatments
For your convenience, Dr. Cederbaum offers both take-home and in-office professional teeth-whitening treatments. Whichever option you choose, you can rest assured that it’s safer and more effective than the results you would get from an over-the-counter product. We can make your teeth several times whiter with in-office treatments from Zoom or take-home trays that you use at your own convenience.
Like veneers, dental bonding can be used to remedy a number of issues involving your smile. The major advantage of bonding is that it’s fast and economical. You can restore a number of dental issues with bonding and it only takes about an hour. With bonding, Dr. Cederbaum uses dental resign to correct the appearance of stained, small, broken, misaligned, chipped, or irregularly-shaped teeth. Bonding can also be used to fill small gaps between your teeth.
