Cosmetic Dentistry Long Island
Porcelain veneers are ultrathin ceramic pieces that can be placed over the teeth to give a dull or cosmetically flawed smile a boost. Veneers can mask stains, cracks, or unevenness in the smile, and can be used on multiple teeth. Dr. Buono also offers minimal-prep alternatives to traditional veneers, including Lumineers® and Snap-On Smile®. Both of these cosmetic dentistry options produce lasting results quickly and with little discomfort.
Although nearly everyone wants a straight smile, some are reluctant to undergo orthodontic treatment because of fear or a concern that the metal brackets in traditional braces will cause pain or embarrassment. Invisalign®, sometimes referred to as “clear braces,” uses a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners to help patients achieve an attractive smile gradually. This orthodontic treatment offers all the benefits of traditional teeth straightening, but without the pain, frequent dental appointments, or food restrictions.
At Garden City Smiles we offer a variety of teeth whitening options to patients whose smile isn’t quite what it could be. A bright, white smile can be the key to making a lasting impression, and we want to help our patients exude confidence everyday. We offer both Zoom!® teeth whitening and LaserSmile® treatments to help patients revive their lackluster smile in one easy office visit.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that involves placing a composite resin on the teeth to restore the appearance of the smile. Bonding can be used to correct chips, cracks, or discoloration, and is a viable option for use on the front teeth. Dr. Buono is a skilled cosmetic dentist and can shape and color the bonding material to blend seamlessly with the rest of the teeth.
