How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help You Smile Again!


Like the name states, veneers are thin layers of porcelain that sit over your teeth and can hide a multitude of problems. Whether you are looking to hide stains, chips, fill uneven tooth spacing, or just make your smile more symmetrical and beautiful, veneers can help! Veneers look like natural teeth, but they are not susceptible to staining like your natural teeth. Veneers can cover multiple teeth, or be used to fill in small chips or gaps without having to alter your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are durable and long lasting, and can be an easy way to cover imperfections you have hid for years. If you are covering your smile due to stains or gaps, see if veneers could help you regain your confident smile!


Maybe your teeth are perfectly straight and even, but it is just the color that is causing you grief. If yellowed teeth have you down, teeth whitening is an easy, quick way to brighten your smile and banish stains. Whether you are getting ready for a wedding or other special event, or just are ready to have a whiter smile, we have multiple options to help dramatically brighten and whiten your teeth. We can do a quick, powerful whitening in-office that gives you brighter teeth quickly and easily. Or, we have trays you can use at home to achieve brighter results in about a week. We also utilize the Philips Zoom!, which uses an LED light to dramatically whiten. Whatever you choose, your smile will be whiter and brighter!


Icon is a revolutionary technology that can penetrate lesions on the teeth to remove white spots on the tooth enamel. White spots can be an early form of tooth decay, as plaque and acids start to erode the surface of the tooth. Once white spots are on the tooth surface, they can become discolored from food and drink and become more noticeable brown or yellow spots. Trauma to the tooth or too much fluoride can also cause white spots. Icon is a product that can treat and remove these white spots through a painless and noninvasive procedure. A fluid is used to remove the spots without any need for a drill or anesthesia. If white spots are interfering with your beautiful smile, Icon can help! Don’t wait to treat white spots, as they can lead to deeper problems than just cosmetic.


Traditional braces can take up to two years, or more, to bring your teeth back into alignment and give you a straighter smile. Fastbraces work much quicker, aligning teeth in half the time of traditional braces. If crowding, an overbite, spacing, or crooked teeth are keeping your smile from shining, fastbraces can get your teeth straight in less time! If you are unhappy with your smile, fastbraces could be the answer for you to have straighter teeth!


Invisalign is a great alternative to braces, and can straighten crooked teeth with no brackets or wires. Virtually invisible, Invisalign will help perfect your smile and eliminates the visual distraction of braces. If your crooked teeth are causing you to avoid smiling, Invisalign could be the perfect solution for you! Invisalign eliminates the self-consciousness that some people feel with traditional metal braces. Meadowbrook Dental Care in Mineola offers this modern way to straighten your teeth and help you have a beautiful smile!
