Our primary method of teeth whitening is the KöR® Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System. Through this advanced whitening process, signs of even the deepest stains can be significantly reduced. The KöR® Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System is designed to result in less teeth sensitivity compared to other whitening treatments, and it combines at-home and in-office care for thorough, long-lasting results. With professional teeth whitening treatment, you can lighten your teeth by several shades for a whiter, brighter smile.
Porcelain veneers are thin, natural-looking durable shells that can improve a range of dental imperfections, including stains, cracks, gaps, chips, and even misalignment. They can dramatically enhance the appearance of your teeth with results that often last for decades. We have our custom-made porcelain dental veneers and other dental restorations crafted at the world-famous Jason J. Kim Oral Design lab in the Upper East Side for the best possible results.Learn More
Through the use of Invisalign®, patients can straighten their teeth in a more comfortable, less noticeable way. These clear, removable teeth aligners make it possible to gradually shift teeth into a more ideal position without the need for metal wires and brackets. Plus, you can remove them while eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Cosmetic dental bonding can often be a good alternative for the treatment of chips, stains, gaps, short-looking teeth, and many other issues. The treatment works through the application of a strong composite resin to your tooth, which will cover any imperfections you would like to address. Dr. Trichas will then use a special light to harden the material. The bonding resin will be molded, shaped, and polished to blend well with the original tooth and result in a natural-looking restoration. Cosmetic bonding can be an effective method of restoring the look and function of your teeth when you need a minor repair.
For a more natural-looking solution, we offer tooth-colored fillings rather than the traditional silver amalgam fillings. These fillings are safer and more aesthetically appealing, as they contain no harmful mercury-based materials and they are designed to blend well with the natural color of your teeth. By utilizing a durable composite resin, your teeth are stronger, and your fillings are at a lower risk of coming loose. Tooth-colored fillings are available for every patient and can replace previous amalgam fillings that you may have had for years.
If you have excess gum tissue that results in a “gummy smile”, you may be a good candidate for gum recontouring. Using our advanced dental technology and non-surgical laser procedures, Dr. Trichas can perform cosmetic gum reshaping to provide an improved balance and symmetry between your teeth and gums.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays repair damage on the surface of your back teeth. Inlays treat decay within the cusps, while onlays restore your teeth when the decay has begun to affect the cusps. They can sometimes be an alternative to fillings that adds more strength to your tooth structure. By using a porcelain material, inlays and onlays offer a durable, long-lasting restoration that is designed to look natural. Dr. Trichas will determine the best solution for you during your oral exam. Once the inlays and/or onlays are crafted, they will be bonded to the vulnerable tooth. Inlays and onlays are a time-tested technique that have proven very effective for treating common dental issues.
Smile makeovers offer a comprehensive solution to several cosmetic dental concerns. Whether you’re concerned with cracks, stains, misalignment, missing teeth, or other issues, we can combine a number of treatments for a full smile makeover.
