3 Cosmetic Treatments to Boost Your Smile

With a smile, you can set the tone as you walk into a room. But if you’re less than confident about the way your smile looks, life gets more difficult. 

That’s where we come in. Gemini Master-Patel, DMD, and our team at Riverside Dental specialize in cosmetic dentistry to help you get the beautiful smile you deserve. We have a wide range of options available at our offices in Yonkers or Thornwood, New York, to move you toward your aesthetic goals. 

While we ultimately tailor your cosmetic dentistry treatment to you, we do have a few treatments teed up here for your consideration. Some of our most popular options include: 

#1: Teeth whitening

Everything from aging to cups of coffee and tea can take a toll on your pearly whites. If they’re not looking as lustrous as you’d like, don’t hesitate to talk to Dr. Master-Patel about your teeth whitening options. 

You can choose in-office whitening, which brightens your teeth by up to eight shades in a single visit, or take-home whitening kits. 

These kits surpass store-bought whitening trays and strips for two reasons. First, we send you home with a professional-grade whitening solution, helping you achieve more dramatic results. Second, we tailor them to you so they fit comfortably and lift stains safely. 

#2: Gummy smile treatment

If you’re bothered by a gummy smile. Dr. Master-Patel can correct it with her specialty in laser dentistry. Using our advanced soft tissue laser, she can perform a gummy smile treatment to contour your gums. 

Downtime from this treatment is minimal — most people go back to their normal activities the next day. So if you’re tired of seeing pink gums instead of pearly whites when you smile, don’t hesitate to talk to our team. 

#3: Veneers

Do you have a problem tooth standing in the way of your cosmetic goals? Whether it’s chipped, stained, too short, or has some other cosmetic imperfection, we can fix it with a veneer

With this option, we adhere a thin porcelain shell to the front of your tooth. This way, people see the veneer instead of the problem underneath. 

Getting a veneer requires a couple of trips to our office. At the first visit, we prepare your tooth for the veneer and take an impression of it. We then use that impression to create your customized veneer so that it fits perfectly with your other teeth. 

At your second visit, we bond the veneer in place, and you can head out into the world beaming. 

These are just a few treatments in our cosmetic dentistry wheelhouse. To explore your options for heading into 2024 with your dream smile, call our office nearest you or book your appointment online today.
