What are some of the goals of cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dental treatments are able to improve one’s appearance in many ways. We are also able to improve the function of the teeth while making them look great. We are able to fill gaps between teeth and make them look extremely natural. We are able to change the size, alignment and shape of some teeth to make them appear and function much better.
We are also able to improve and correct one’s bite. We are able to replace missing teeth with very durable, functional, and natural looking dental implants. We are also able to dramatically increase the brightness of one’s teeth with completely safe teeth whitening procedures.
We are able to repair cracked teeth, broken teeth, chipped teeth or decayed teeth to make them function like normal and appear like new. And finally, with advances in dental materials, we are able to cover teeth with beautiful looking porcelain veneers for a smile makeover that used to only be seen in Hollywood.
Seen below are some of the more common cosmetic dentistry procedures
Professional teeth whitening is one of the most simple cosmetic dental procedures that we perform in order to improve one’s appearance. It is a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to improve one’s smile.
There are many ways that teeth can get stained and not look as white. The most common reasons for non-white teeth are exposure to tobacco, coffee, tea, and red wine.
At Sachar Dental NYC, we offer in-office teeth whitening, take-home teeth whitening with custom fitted trays and professional, take-home teeth whitening kits. Of these three methods, the in-office teeth waiting is the most effective. Additionally, when you do in-office teeth whitening, we also include a custom take-home teeth whitening kit for at-home maintenance in the future.
Professional teeth whitening is completely safe, and has been done successfully for many years. We are able to brighten the tooth enamel without damaging the underlying tooth.
In-office teeth whitening takes just over one hour to perform. The results are immediate and dramatic. For more mildly stained teeth, we recommend take-home teeth whitening kits with custom trays. We take a mold of your teeth and your custom molded trays are usually ready to be picked up later in the same day. We will give specific instructions with the teeth whitening kits in order for you to bleach your teeth at home. Additionally, the custom trays are included in the cost of our in-office teeth whitening, so that you can do maintenance at home in the future.

A smile makeover is indicated for any patient that wants to improve the appearance of their smile for any reason. A smile makeover often can make one look much younger and restore the appearance and smile that you had when you were younger.
At Sachar Dental NYC, our cosmetic dentists are experts in determining which procedures would be best for each individual patient. They take into consideration many factors including the patient’s facial structure, the size and shape of their smile, proportions of the smile in comparison to the face, and the natural existing appearance of the mouth and teeth. Choosing which procedures to be included in a smile makeover is truly an art. We always listen to our patients concerns and take them into consideration when planning our procedures.
Benefits of a smile makeover include both emotional and physical benefits. A smile makeover can often reverse the signs of aging and improve the general appearance of one’s face. Psychological benefits are also achieved with a smile makeover. Many of our patients have reported increased self-confidence, feeling younger, and have more self-esteem.
There are many variables in choosing which procedures to perform. A smile makeover can be done in one visit or last many months. At Sachar Dental NYC, our expert cosmetic dentists will always spend a great deal of time explaining the benefits of each procedure and their treatment plans. Additionally, our cosmetic dentists will always work with you to ensure that you are completely satisfied and happy with the results.
The following is a list of potential problems that can be solved with a smile makeover: crooked teeth, gaps between the teeth, misaligned bite, small teeth, long teeth, uneven gumline, uneven smile, teeth that do not show when smiling, cracked or broken teeth, missing teeth, chipped teeth, worn teeth, and stained teeth.
The following is a list of some of the procedures that may be included in a smile makeover: professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, resin veneers, chair-side bonding veneers, porcelain fillings, porcelain inlays, porcelain onlays, porcelain crowns, Invisalign™, gum lift, gum reshaping, gum grafting, tooth colored fillings, teeth bonding, porcelain bridges, and dental implants.
The first step in a smile makeover is an initial consultation with our cosmetic dentists. During this visit, our cosmetic dentists will discuss in detail your goals and what you do not like about your current smile. During the initial consultation, we often take a full set of x-rays as well as pictures. We take an impression of the teeth that allows us to create a mold and visualized it in three dimensions. We will then determine which procedures we recommend and discuss them with you in detail.
At Sachar Dental NYC, our philosophy is only use the least invasive procedures and the most conservative methods, in order to achieve your goals. Our cosmetic dentists and prosthodontist are experts in treating the most complex dental patients.
Porcelain veneers are an easy way to create a perfect smile. They are versatile and able to correct for many abnormalities and they last a long time. If you have seen the perfect teeth and smiles of Hollywood celebrities, there is a good chance you have seen porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures performed. They are made a very thin sheets of a durable porcelain material that are custom shaped, and matched in color in the dental laboratory. Porcelain veneers are bonded to the natural tooth and cover them. They are custom made in order to fix many cosmetic dental problems.
Porcelain veneers are made out of incredibly thin and durable glass ceramic materials that mimic the natural enamel of the tooth that allows light to penetrate inside, just like your teeth. There is an infinite number of shades and colors that can be used in order to match the exact color you desire.
At Sachar Dental NYC, our expert cosmetic dentists possess the skill and artistic ability to make your teeth look absolutely perfect with porcelain veneers. At the same time, they make them look very natural, and not fake. Another important skill that we possess at Sachar Dental NYC, is the ability to make your teeth function normally that prevents future failure of your porcelain veneers. We go to great lengths in order to perfect the shape and size of the porcelain veneers in order to accommodate the patients normal anatomy and bite structure, such that the porcelain veneers will not fail in the future.
By themselves, or in combination with other cosmetic dental procedures, porcelain veneers are able to improve the appearance of the following anomalies: chips of the teeth, tooth discoloration, gaps between the teeth, misalignment of the teeth, misshapen teeth, short teeth, stained teeth, cracks of the teeth, uneven teeth, worn teeth, worn enamel, tooth imperfections, and minor tooth cracks.
Cosmetic Bonding Veneers
Cosmetic bonding veneers are also called resin bonding veneers. Cosmetic bonding veneer entails using a resin or composite material that is also used for tooth colored fillings, in order to change the appearance and color of the teeth. They are a less expensive alternative to porcelain veneers and unlike porcelain veneers can be done in one visit sometimes. They can greatly enhance one’s smile and correct for many cosmetic anomalies of the teeth.
Cosmetic bonding veneers can improve the appearance of the following tooth problems: chipped teeth, short teeth, out of alignment teeth, stained teeth, and gaps between the teeth.
While both cosmetic bonding veneers and porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of one’s smile, the expert cosmetic dentists at Sachar Dental NYC will determine which one is best for each patient. There are pros and cons of porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding veneers. Our cosmetic dentists are experts in choosing which one to use.
A cosmetic porcelain crown is an easy way to improve the appearance and function of the tooth by covering it. It is made out of tooth colored porcelain that is utilized to repair or cover a tooth that has been cracked or decayed.
Porcelain crowns are fabricated in our dental laboratory in order to exactly match the shape and color of the damaged tooth. Not only does it make the tooth look normal, it also allows it function normally as well.
A porcelain crown is permanently bonded to the natural tooth. The porcelain is translucent and allows light to penetrate inside, just like normal tooth enamel. This enables the porcelain crown to mimic the natural translucency of your teeth.
A cosmetic porcelain crown can be utilized to alleviate the following tooth problems: stained teeth, discolored teeth, root canaled teeth that have become discolored, misalignment teeth, crooked teeth, short teeth, tooth decay, fractured tooth, chipped teeth, broken teeth, large cavities, and replacing old crowns that have failed.
The first step in getting a porcelain crown is to prepare the tooth that will receive it. We remove any damaged part of the tooth and then take molds. The porcelain crown is fabricated in our dental laboratory to match the exact shape of the natural tooth. This whole process takes 1-2 weeks. Our expert cosmetic dentists will perfectly match the porcelain crown to the normal appearance and function of your teeth.
Tooth colored fillings
Tooth colored fillings are simply filings that match the same shape and color of your natural teeth. They are used to repair teeth that have become decayed, or cracked.
In the below picture you can see old metal fillings that have been replaced with natural looking cosmetic tooth colored fillings. These tooth colored fillings are mercury-free and BPA-free. At Sachar Dental NYC we never use any of the many tooth colored filling and sealant materials that are commonly used today that contain trace amounts of BPA, a known endocrine disruptor and carcinogen. Although these materials cost us more, we do not pass these costs on to our patients.
At Sachar Dental NYC, we only use the least toxic materials in our dentistry. Tooth colored fillings are not only the least toxic kind, but also the most aesthetically appealing.
Tooth colored fillings may consist of a resin type composite filling material, porcelain inlays and porcelain onlay fillings. Porcelain is naturally translucent which allows light to penetrate inside just like normal tooth enamel. Additionally, our resin fillings can also be translucent to mimic the appearance of your natural teeth.
A porcelain inlay filling is made out of porcelain that is shaped in the dental laboratory and used to fill large cavities within the tooth. A porcelain onlay filling is also made out of translucent porcelain that is shaped in the dental laboratory, and used to fill larger cavities that have resulted in the loss of one or more of the outer surfaces of the tooth. These porcelain fillings allow the tooth to look and function normally and be strong. The porcelain is permanently bonded to the natural tooth.
No matter which material is utilized, the goal of the tooth colored fillings is to restore the original strength, shape, size as well as the function of the natural teeth.
