More About Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Cosmetic dentistry includes any dental procedure enhancing the appearance of patients’ smiles. We are ready to talk to you about any of the following procedures:
- Teeth Whitening
- Cosmetic Bonding
- Teeth reshaping and contouring
- Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment
- Porcelain Minimum Preparation Veneers
- Gum lifts and gum grafting procedures
- Dental Implants
- Full Mouth Makeover
Cosmetic restorative treatments like veneers, crowns, bridges are performed with a biomimetic approach, meaning minimal tooth reduction and mimicking natural strength and appearance of teeth.
Dr. Elzbieta Paul provides cosmetic restorative dental services by adding restorative tooth structure, rather than removing it. Most cosmetic procedures in our office involve an additive wax-up preparation first to allow patients to preview the proposed esthetic outcome of treatment and to reduce the amount of tooth reduction needed.
What is included in Cosmetic Dentistry procedures?
We offer KöR teeth whitening at our office, which is widely recognized as the world’s most effective teeth whitening system. This cost-effective option allows patients to whiten their teeth at home with phenomenal results, provides astonishing treatment of teeth discolored by tetracycline, and handles everything in-between.
When teeth have gaps, chips, cracks, and other superficial damage, cosmetic bonding is a cost-effective solution. The bonding process involves filling, restoring, or reshaping teeth using a tooth-colored composite material. A skilled cosmetic dentist like Dr. Paul sculpts the bonding with exacting detail to match the appearance of your natural tooth.
Invisalign® Orthodontic Treatment
Invisalign helps patients achieve beautiful smiles in a way that doesn’t draw attention to the fact that they’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. These clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible, and they’re made with advanced SmartTrack® material to move teeth in a controlled, predictable, and efficient manner. Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than braces and because they can be removed, they make eating and oral hygiene much easier. Depending on your malocclusion and the tooth movement needed you will be given certain numbers of aligners and you’ll switch them every 2 weeks until your teeth have gradually moved to their new positions. With your Invisalign treatment, we include the final set of Invisalign retainers and complimentary whitening gel.
Dr. Paul graduated from the Orthodontic Honor Program at New York College of Dentistry and is a Preferred Invisalign Provider.
Porcelain Minimum Prep Veneers
Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a wide range of aesthetic imperfections, including discoloration, gaps between teeth, minor malocclusions, chipped teeth, or any combination of these issues. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain crafted to look like natural teeth; a thin layer of enamel is prepared and then veneers are bonded to them and hardened using a specialized curing light. Veneers can be applied to all visible teeth for a dramatic makeover, or even on a single tooth to correct a cosmetic issue.
Full Mouth Makeover
When multiple restorations and cosmetic procedures are needed, it’s considered a full mouth makeover. We’ll work closely with you to assess your needs, come up with treatment goals, and stay within your budget. A makeover typically takes multiple office visits, but the result is a complete transformation of your smile.

Invisalign, dental veneers, and cosmetic bonding can all be used to close gaps between teeth. After examining your teeth in person, we’ll be able to help you choose the best treatment option for your needs.
