Cosmetic Dentistry

Your smile is your first impression when you meet someone for the first time. When your smile is less than perfect, it can give the wrong impression – that you are old, or you don’t take care of yourself. Alternatively, if your smile has led you to hide your smile, you could be giving off the impression that you are unfriendly. At National Dental Upper East Side, we can restore your smile with the help of cosmetic dentistry services.


Treatment with Invisalign® involves a series of aligners. Each set of aligners is meant to be worn for two weeks, only to be removed for eating, or for cleaning your teeth. With each new set of aligners, your teeth are moved gradually. The rigid plastic of the aligners puts pressure on your teeth, coaxing them bit by bit.>> Learn more about Invisalign® clear aligners


There are numerous factors that can turn your brilliant white teeth dull and discolored. These include such things as coffee, tea, red wine, medications, and smoking. Teeth whitening is designed to restore the bright white shine to your teeth. At National Dental Upper East Side, we offer professional whitening services. >> Learn more about teeth whitening


The dental bonding material, composite resin, has several uses. Whether you have small chips in your teeth, gaps between them, misshapen or if they are discolored, bonding can help. This material can also be used as a tooth-colored filling when you have cavities. Bonding is a simple process that is completely pain-free. >> Learn more about dental bonding


Porcelain veneers are used to fix many of the same imperfections that bonding can – minor chips, cracks, gaps, misshapen teeth, and more. However, veneers are made from porcelain and are often stronger than composite resin. Veneers are thin “shells” that cover the front portions of your visible teeth. >> Learn more about porcelain veneers


Crowns are used when you have a compromised tooth and helps to avoid the need for extraction. Crowns are “caps” for teeth, providing strength and support to an otherwise weak or damaged tooth. They can be used to fix several issues such as holding together a cracked tooth, providing support to a tooth with a large filling, or protect a tooth following a root canal. >> Learn more about dental crowns


A gum lift, also sometimes referred to as a crown lengthening, is designed to lessen the gumminess of your smile. It is a procedure that involves removing excess gum tissue to expose more of the surface area of your teeth and create a more natural, even gum line. When finished you are left with a natural, beautiful smile that others are sure to take notice of. >> Learn more about aesthetic gum lift


Your smile says a lot about you. There are many components that go into a beautiful smile – the color of your teeth, their shape, their size and their spacing. Imperfections can quickly turn a confident smile into one that you hide behind your hand, or by keeping your lips sealed tight. If your smile is not what you want it to be, National Dental Upper East Side can help with a smile makeover. >> Learn more about smile makeovers
