The stars that shine in our nighttime sky – outside of the city at least – are primarily hydrogen and helium. Your smile, no matter how hard you try, will never be as bright. But our earthly stars – those who shine on screen and stage – have teeth just like yours and, just like just like you, must put effort into keeping those teeth bright, straight, and attractive.
Manhattan cosmetic dentists Dr. Elisa Mello and Dr. Ramin Tabib can help you achieve a smile to rival the stars or, at the least, shine just as bright. Give us a call at 212-452-3344 to schedule a consultation and learn more.
Solutions for Brighter Teeth
Dr. Tabib and Dr. Mello have helped many celebrities obtain and maintain flawless smiles. Diane Neal, Laverne Cox, Rosie O’Donnell and many others have come to us for cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry treatments that strengthen, protect, and beautify teeth and gums for the most attractive smiles possible. But these services are not reserved for celebrities. We believe everyone is entitled to feel confident in their appearance and are honored to offer customizable solutions for every person who walks through our doors.
If your smile is dingy, yellowed, or stained, we can brighten and perfect it with personalized cosmetic treatments including:
- Teeth whitening – we offer both in-office treatments and take-home kits for the safe, fast, and effective removal of surface stains and deeper discoloration
- Porcelain veneers – for stains that will not be responsive to topical bleaches, we often recommend porcelain veneers
Other options for brightening your smile include dental bonding and, depending on the location of the tooth, porcelain dental crowns. These solutions may also come in handy when addressing more pronounced or functionally limiting cosmetic imperfections as well.
Cosmetic and Functional Concerns
Tooth discoloration is one of the most common cosmetic dental problems addressed at our NYC office, but it is just one of several issues we can correct. Problems we frequently encounter include:
- Teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken
- Teeth that are crooked or irregularly sized
- Gaps or spaces in between teeth
- Tooth crowding
- Excessive gum tissue
Like tooth discoloration, these problems, even when minor, can have a profound impact on the appearance of your smile. Like teeth whitening, services available at our office can easily and completely correct cosmetic and functional problems, restoring strength and producing an even, clean, and attractive look to your smile.
Popular options include:
- Porcelain dental crowns to protect teeth weakened through trauma, decay, and infection. The dental crowns offered by our cosmetic dentists are shaped and shaded to fit perfectly into your smile. Strong, attractive, and built to protect, porcelain crowns can last for decades when cared for properly
- Porcelain veneers to cover teeth impacted by cosmetic imperfections or mild malocclusion. Spacing issues, irregular tooth sizes, deep discoloration and more can be addressed with the customizable veneers offered at NYC Smile Design
- Tooth reshaping to remove cracks and create an even and consistent appearance
- Gum contouring to reveal teeth obscured by excessive gum tissue and produce a more attractive gum line
- Orthodontics like Invisalign®, clear braces, and removable braces to align the bite and address more pronounced or severe malocclusion
During your initial smile makeover consultation at our NYC office, we can discuss these and related services to help you find those that are most suitable for your needs and desires, and most likely to produce the results you deserve.
But Isn’t Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?
Celebrities may be able to achieve perfect smiles, but that’s because they can afford to pay for cosmetic dentistry, right? Sure. But so can you – and we can help.
At NYC Smile Design, we accept all major credit cards as well as cash for cosmetic, restorative, and general dental treatments. We also work with CareCredit®, a trusted and reliable healthcare financing company that offers several repayment options including 0% APR plans. If you are concerned with the cost of your procedure, we can provide you with information about CareCredit or supply you with an application during your initial consultation. You can also apply directly by visiting their website, www.CareCredit.com.
The cost of cosmetic dentistry is often a consideration for people looking to improve their smiles. What should be equally considered is the cost of leaving your smile as it is. Several studies have shown that people with straight and healthy-looking smiles are more likely to get hired for desirable positions and more likely to get promoted once hired. Smiles are frequently cited as one of the things potential partners look at first, and some researchers have even found that the appearance of teeth and gums serves as an indication of overall health when viewed by others.
You probably know from personal experience, smiles that are discolored, missing teeth, or full of imperfections are distracting and have an impact on how you view its owner – initially at least. You improve your chances, at work, at love, and at success, when you make beautifying your smile a priority. These benefits are priceless and easily justify the initial cost of cosmetic dentistry.
Be Your Own Star
Celebrities often have very attractive smiles. When you consider all you know about how the appearance of a smile impacts the way a person is viewed, that makes perfect sense.
People with attractive smiles are often considered more trustworthy, clean, and appealing than those with pronounced and obvious imperfections. The good news is, addressing these problems is neither difficult nor cost prohibitive – and our dentists are here to provide you with the same services and the same personalized care they give to the stars of stage and screen that trust NYC Smile Design to keep their teeth strong, attractive, and healthy.
You don’t have to be a celebrity to smile like one – but smiling like one can help you succeed. We welcome an opportunity to meet with you in person and discuss this in more detail, and to learn how we can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
