Cosmetic Dentistry

Consultations

At Northern Westchester Dental Care, we will complete a cosmetic analysis of your teeth using scientific and artistic principles based on our examinations and diagnostic records. This step cannot be omitted.

We will consider why your teeth are in their current condition and what, if anything, is necessary to solve the underlying issues. We will consider your facial shape, skin tones, profile, gum positions and color, and the position, texture and shape of your teeth. If you have missing teeth, rotated teeth, spacing issues or gaps, our team will determine the best way to give you a functional, beautiful result.

The result of all this diagnostic work, is a treatment plan customized for you that solves or manages your problems while giving you the smile you’ve always wanted.

We often utilize life-like wax mockups showing the shape and position of your teeth for accurate analysis before we ever start. You are part of the diagnosis and plan before any treatment is ever started.  The team also uses computer imaging to give you a preview of the possibilities for the new you.

Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded to teeth and often require minimal or no tooth reduction. Veneers can alter the color, size, and shape of teeth giving ideal esthetic and functional results.

When applied over the surface of a tooth, veneers can cover worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing and chips or cracks.

Dental veneers fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they create a bright, esthetically pleasing smile with beautifully aligned and properly shaped teeth. The translucent ceramic quality of today’s veneers provide a more natural look than ever possible before!

Dental Veneers May Be the Answer.

Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues.

Worn Enamel

Over time, the thin, hard outer substance covering your teeth (enamel) may become worn, dulled, and discolored.

Such wear and discoloration may be natural or the result of a genetic predisposition. It is often a result of your habits (soft drink, tea, or coffee consumption, smoking, medication use, etc.). It is also a result of grinding and clenching.

Wear and Tear

Teeth naturally wear down as people age. Aged teeth are much more likely to have chips, cracks or a generally uneven appearance.

Genetics

Certain people may be born with abnormal spacing between the teeth that grows wider as they age. This may also explain color abnormalities.

Uneven Teeth

Uneven teeth can result from tooth grinding or general wear and tear. Uneven teeth can also be due to bit or occlusion problems.

Porcelain Veneers

The most common material used in the manufacture of dental veneers is porcelain. Porcelain veneers are fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory. Veneers are bonded to the teeth with various types of resin cement. The result is beautiful, natural, strong teeth.

Lumineers

Lumineers by Cerinate are porcelain veneers that may require no shots, no drilling, and therefore, no pain. Northern Westchester Dental Care can apply these contact lens-thin “smile shapers” to teeth without any grinding or shaving, transforming teeth into a naturally beautiful smile that looks amazing.

They are placed over existing teeth without having to remove any tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers.)

If you are a candidate, Lumineers can be the painless, cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored, or misaligned teeth.

What are the benefits of Lumineers?

  • No shots or anesthetic required – procedure is entirely pain-free
  • Little to no reduction of tooth structure
  • Extraordinarily strong. Clinically proven to last up to 20 years
  • Only two visits necessary
  • Extremely natural-looking because it is so thin and translucent
  • No temporaries required
  • Restores and strengthens teeth. Help prevent wear
  • Ideal for teens and people of all ages

Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most gratifying techniques available today.

We treat our patients with in-office whitening and take-home kits depending on the current status of the teeth and desired outcome. The in-office procedure is safe and produces immediate results.

It is possible to get up to 10 shades lighter!

Dental Implants

The answer to missing teeth, a dental implant is a biocompatible, man-made substitute to replace missing tooth roots. They are made of surgical grade titanium. Implants come in various shapes and sizes to address individual needs. Most are cylinders placed into bone and allowed to heal undisturbed while bone heals around them, locking them in like an anchor. After a few months, the implants are used as a foundation for replacing the missing teeth.

In some cases, “Immediate Implants” are placed and temporary teeth are placed the SAME DAY! 36 million people in the U.S. have no teeth in one or both arches and most are unaware of what dentistry has to offer. 120 million people have lost one or more teeth.

Drs. Seth and Dana Keiles have placed and restored over a thousand implants for patients over the past 20 years. They have in-depth training and great experience in this area and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

  • Restore your chewing ability
  • Improved appearance
  • Emulate natural teeth
  • End embarrassment
  • Give real self-confidence to patients
  • The most stable and best solution for missing teeth
  • The Gold Standard of Dentistry
  • Preserve existing teeth
  • No susceptibility to dental decay (cavities)
  • Makes dentures and partials no longer necessary
