Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Dr. Sousa offers a range of cosmetic treatments to address your cosmetic concerns. He works with patients on an individual basis to create a personalized treatment plan to help them achieve a beautiful smile. The cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer include:
Gum contouring and gum lifts – A gum lift is a cosmetic procedure that can raise and reshape your gums. The reason some patients hate their smile could be because of a “gummy smile”. Dr. Sousa has the talent to create a natural looking gum line that will compliment a patient’s smile and support healthy teeth. Gum contouring is also used to treat gums that are receding due to diseases, exposing sensitive tooth roots. We are able to remove damaged tissue and stimulate the healing process.
Minimal prep veneers – These are a popular treatment for patients seeking a smile makeover to change the color, shape, size and overall appearance of their teeth. For minimal prep veneers, Dr. Sousa uses an ultra-thin ceramic material because of its durability. Veneers are an easy way to improve your smile, making it symmetrical and bright white.
Teeth whitening – Teeth whitening is a safe and efficient cosmetic treatment that can whiten discolored teeth and improve your smile instantly. Teeth whitening is comfortable, effective, and can whiten teeth up to 8 shades in just one hour. Dr. Sousa offers the Zoom® in office whitening system for a quick smile makeover with often dramatic results.
Tooth bonding – Tooth bonding can often provide an instant, economical smile makeover. Our cosmetic dentistry office uses tooth colored, high-quality composite resin materials that can be carefully sculpted into place. It is completed in a single visit to our East Hills, NY area dentist office and most patients experience minimal to no discomfort during the procedure.
Porcelain veneers – This popular cosmetic treatment is a permanent dental restoration that can correct discolored, crooked, damaged or misshapen teeth. They are made from high quality, ultra-thin porcelain that is custom fabricated to perfectly fit your teeth. Porcelain veneers are durable, stain resistant and custom matched to blend with your natural teeth.
