Get Your Smile On {with Cosmetic Dentistry}

Now that summer has {almost} arrived, get your smile on with Dr. Dominique Lizzio of Long Island Family Dentistry in Garden City. Below, Dr. Lizzio tells us how to get the smile we want with cosmetic dentistry. Dr Lizzio has just been featured in the May issue of the Long Island Pulse as a 2015 Doctor of Distinction in the category of Cosmetic Dentistry. So you’re hearing from a real pro folks! Congrats to Dr. Lizzio on that great honor. 

Whether you want to improve your smile for a job interview or have a perfect smile on your wedding day, cosmetic dentistry has quickly become one of the most popular ways to improve your appearance. From subtle changes to overall repair, adults are finding themselves at the dentist discussing more than just preventing cavities. Procedures such as Invisalign or porcelain veneers can dramatically change your smile while sometimes providing added benefits of improving oral problems, such as your bite. Less invasive procedures such as tooth whitening or tooth recontouring can be a quick fix that can have you walking around with better looking teeth in about an hour. 

If it’s whiter teeth you want, tooth whitening is a fast and simple way to get rid of years of stain that have embedded onto your tooth surface. Whitening can be done in two ways, either at home or in the dental office. Both treatments, when supervised by a dentist, can whiten and brighten teeth with no adverse effects to tooth enamel. 

If you are bothered by a few teeth that are slightly misaligned or misshapen, bonding or recontouring can be done easily in just one dental visit. In most cases, even spaces between teeth can be closed easily by bonding tooth colored material onto tooth surfaces. This treatment can last for several years.

Although usually requiring more than one visit, porcelain veneers or crowns offer a strong, color stable alternative to improving your smile. This procedure usually requires the dentist to take an impression of your teeth, which is sent to a dental laboratory to have the desired restoration made. These types of restorations are a great and long lasting way to permanently change the shape and color of your teeth, giving you a picture perfect smile. 

Making time to consult with a dentist that has experience in cosmetic dental care is the best way to begin to understand which option is best for improving your smile. With the right treatment you can increase your self confidence and be comfortable knowing that your smile reflects who you truly are.
