Resolve to Smiler Brighter This Year: Consider a Smile Makeover

If you want to greet the new year (and the new decade) with a smile that exudes confidence, vitality, and great health, there are a number of effective ways to accomplish this with our smile makeover. Whether your teeth are crooked, discolored, or just plain missing, we offer a full array of cosmetic dentistry options that will make your smile one you’re proud to show off.

At Meadowbrook Dental Care, in Mineola, New York, under the experienced and expert guidance of Drs. Miguel A. Casañas Jr. and Publio Silfa, we offer a wide range of dental services that take care of your teeth inside and out. But even with the most vigilant care, your otherwise great smile may have succumbed to chips, wear-and-tear, and staining, which is where a smile makeover can help restore your teeth.

If you’ve resolved to smile brighter this year, take a moment to explore your smile makeover options.

Whiten up

One of the easiest ways to improve your smile is with our teeth whitening services and products, including Zoom!®, which can whiten your teeth by many shades. We offer both in-office whitening and take-home kits, both of which provide you with professional-grade whitening products. Instead of spending more time and money on over-the-counter products that garner mediocre results at best, our professional teeth whitening delivers dramatic results with very little effort.

Cover up

If your teeth are severely stained or you have minor imperfections, then veneers may be the perfect solution. Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells we place over the fronts of your teeth to cover up:

Veneers provide the perfect “window dressing” for those highly exposed teeth at the front of your mouth.

See spot go

If your teeth have accumulated white spots, we offer Icon®, which is a painless and noninvasive treatment that relies on fluid to clear up the spots. We can typically remove your white spots with Icon in just one visit.

Straighten out

If you’d like to straighten your teeth, but you’re hesitant about unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces, we offer the Invisalign® system, which uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth. Invisalign works extremely well to correct the same issues that traditional braces correct, including:

In addition to being nearly invisible, Invisalign aligners are removable, which allows you to maintain your pearly whites while you straighten your teeth.

Filling in the gap

If you’re missing a tooth, it can have a major impact on your smile, as well as your overall dental health. To fill in the gap, we offer dental implants, which excel in both form and function. With dental implants, we place a titanium post into your jawbone, which fuses it into place for superior stability. We then place a crown over the implant, which fits in seamlessly with your existing teeth.

Every smile has different needs, so we tailor a program to meet your goals. The first step in your smile makeover is to come in and see us so we can sit down together and figure out the best plan of action. To get started, contact us to set up a consultation.
