Teeth tend to discolor over time. Many things can hasten this process; tobacco, coffee, and a range of other factors can cause your teeth to lose their lustrous white shine. Our powerful cosmetic bleaching procedures can revive dull, yellowed, discolored teeth by restoring the bright white color that is their natural state. We provide in-office teeth whitening, which can be performed in the utmost comfort in about an hour.
All American Smile Dental Studios is pleased to offer in-office teeth whitening for our patients. Professional teeth whitening has many benefits. Unlike over-the-counter tooth bleaching products, which only remove surface stains, professional whitening solutions remove deep-set stains. This provides dramatic results, even for badly discolored teeth. Patients who want a more subtle lightening effect can also benefit from professional teeth whitening, since the dentist can control the level of whitening. In addition, the bleaching solution is powerful yet gentle, and it minimizes gum sensitivity.
To begin the teeth whitening treatment, the dentist applies a rubber mouth-guard to shield the gums from the whitening solution. Next, he applies the whitening solution to the teeth. The dentist may apply the solution two or more times to completely whiten the teeth. With in-office teeth whitening, patients can leave our office after just one visit with dazzling white smiles.
Implant dentistry and cosmetic dentistry work hand-in-hand, since they allow dentists to provide attractive, lasting solutions for many structural dental problems. Patients no longer have to endure the functional and aesthetic issues associated with missing or damaged teeth, or with unstable restorations. At All American Smile Dental Studios, we provide smile makeovers with implant dentistry, placing dental implants to anchor beautiful, porcelain crowns, bridges, and dentures directly to the jawbone. The resulting reconstruction is utterly secure, quite natural-looking, and indistinguishable from the natural teeth.
Implant dentistry takes the advantages of replacing a missing or severely damaged tooth to the next level. In addition to filling gaps in the teeth, eliminating unattractive teeth, and keeping the surrounding teeth in line, implant-supported restorations provide enhanced stability, confidence, and dental health benefits. Patients who receive implant-supported restorations can enjoy complete confidence in their smile makeover, since these restorations look and feel like natural teeth. The artificial tooth does not slip, slide, or shift, so patients can laugh, eat, and speak with assurance. Since implant-supported restorations do not rely on support from the surrounding teeth, they do not cause those teeth to become misaligned over time by placing pressure on them.
Stained, cracked, chipped, and misaligned teeth can be easily and quickly corrected with porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are used to cover damaged, discolored, or misaligned teeth. The problem teeth are resurfaced, and the veneers are then bonded to the teeth. Porcelain veneers are often called “instant orthodontics” because they can create the appearance of straight, perfect teeth in just a few visits to the dentist, as opposed to the many months traditional orthodontics take to achieve that result.
If teeth are severely damaged or discolored, porcelain crowns can provide an excellent way to restore their function in a way that keeps your smile full and looking good. Crowns are made of porcelain and completely cover the damaged tooth. They are highly durable and provide all the necessary support to restore the function and appearance of your teeth. Crowns can be used to repair nearly any tooth, provided that the root is intact. If the root is not salvageable, or if the tooth is so severely damaged that it needs to be extracted, dental implants are the best option for restoration, since they replace the root of the tooth.

Invisalign® is the modern, discreet, and comfortable way to bring your teeth into proper alignment. As opposed to traditional metal braces, Invisalign® uses a series of clear, plastic alignment trays that gently and gradually shift your teeth to improve the appearance of your smile and the health of your mouth. You will wear each of your custom-designed trays for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next one. Because they are clear and fit directly over your teeth, only the people that you tell will know that you are going through the treatment.
Dental bonding is a fast and effective means of covering small imperfections in your smile. Because the effect is similar to what porcelain veneers can provide, many choose to undergo bonding as an affordable means of deciding whether they want to move forward with a more premium procedure. Tooth-colored resin is applied to the tooth, sculpted, and cured with a special light to give your smile attractive symmetry.
If you would like to enhance your smile’s appearance, All American Smile Dental Studios provides an array of options, including teeth whitening and implant dentistry options, at our Manhattan and Brooklyn offices.
