Whether you know it or not, people take note of your teeth when you smile. In fact, the condition of your smile can make or break their first impression of you. An imperfect smile can affect your confidence and your oral health. At National Dental Melville, we can restore the beauty of your smile, your oral health, and your confidence, with cosmetic dentistry.
Teeth WhiteningAt National Dental Melville, we provide two whitening procedures. The first is done right in our office. It is known as chairside whitening and takes approximately an hour of your time. After a protective gel is placed on your gums, the bleaching agent (which contains hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide) is placed on your teeth.

Dental BondingFirst impressions are important. Your smile is a crucial element in the impression that you leave. Imperfections in your teeth, even minor ones, can have the wrong effect. No matter who you are meeting, you want to leave the right mark. At National Dental Melville, we can help restore your smile, fixing minor dental imperfections and allowing you to leave the right first impression with dental bonding.

Dental VeneersVeneers are typically made from either composite resin or porcelain. Both are white, matching the color of natural enamel. However, composite resin is not nearly as strong as porcelain and is highly susceptible to damage. At National Dental Melville, our veneers are made from porcelain. Porcelain is stronger than composite resin.

Dental CrownsThe process of getting a crown typically takes two visits. During your first visit, the affected tooth is prepared. We administer a local anesthetic and remove some of the enamel of the tooth. This will allow sufficient space for your restoration to fit in amongst the rest of your teeth. Once the enamel has been removed, we then take an impression of your mouth.

Aesthetic Gum LiftAlso commonly called a crown lengthening, an aesthetic gum lift is a procedure that is meant to remove excess gum tissue. Depending upon your specific circumstances, we may also need to remove a small amount of bone to achieve the desired results. The goal of this procedure is to restore a more normal size appearance to your teeth and provide you with a natural, even gum line.
