Cosmetic Dentistry: Gum Contouring

Cosmetic Dentistry: Gum Contouring In Flushing

If you are a regular visitor to our blog here at Parsons Smile Center, you have probably read many articles on cosmetic dentistry procedures. Dr. Fady Salha is a master of smile makeovers.

Dental bonding, crowns, and porcelain veneers can take care of teeth that are chipped, broken, or misshapen.

Our patients with stained or dull teeth can have a sparkly white smile with teeth whitening. For ordinary cavities, there are tooth-colored fillings, inlays, and onlays.

Dental implants are gaining popularity among dental patients who want to restore missing teeth. If your teeth are misaligned, we provide a number of orthodontic options.

What if your cosmetic dental problem has to do with your gums? Are you one of the many dental patients whose gums are too long, too short, or uneven? There is a solution for gum problems as well. The answer is gum contouring surgery.

With gum contouring, sometimes called tissue sculpting or gum reshaping, a Flushing dentist or periodontist can improve the shape or size of your gums.

Gum reshaping is not always a cosmetic procedure. If the gums have receded to a point where the tooth root is susceptible to decay, gum surgery can restore the natural, healthy gumline and protect tooth root and bone.

For more information about gum contouring, call us at 718-939-0862.

Let’s Talk About It

cosmetic dental Flushing

Hello, I’m Dr. Salha of Parsons Smile Center in Flushing. I am committed to improving smiles through cosmetic dentistry. Few physical improvements have such a meaningful effect on attractiveness and self-confidence as a smile makeover. Excellent oral health and a gorgeous smile contribute to overall physical health and a high quality of life.

If you have ever wondered how cosmetic dentistry could change your life, I invite you to schedule a consultation so we can talk about it. I am certain that the initial consultation is the most crucial part of any treatment plan. During your no-pressure smile transformation consultation we will explore the following issues:

  • Your goals for how you want your smile to look and feel after the makeover.
  • The quality of your oral health.
  • The individual features of your teeth and gums that you wish to repair.
  • Which particular treatments are necessary.
  • A detailed explanation of each necessary procedure (e.g. porcelain veneers, dental crowns, inlays/onlays, gum contouring, crown lengthening, tooth implants, braces, or teeth whitening).
  • You can see before and after pictures of smile transformation patients.
  • Your options for how to schedule the services (all at once or over time).
  • Information about oral conscious sedation.
  • Answers to any questions or concerns.
  • Cosmetic dentistry costs and financing options.

Your beautiful smile begins with an exam and consultation; give us a call at 718-939-0862.

Embarrassed By Your Teeth?

Whitestone cosmetic dentistry What is a beautiful smile worth? Whitestone men and women who have received a smile makeover at Parsons Smile Center in Flushing say it was worth every penny.

Your smile is a part of you that you share with your family, friends, and colleagues every day. An attractive smile creates confidence. If you are embarrassed by your smile, you waste mental and physical energy trying to hide it.

How would your life improve if you felt comfortable in every social and professional situation? If you have been trying to hide your smile for years, what incorrect assumptions have others made about you? Do you come across as self-conscious or distant because you hardly laugh at jokes and barely crack a smile when you meet someone for the first time?

Investing in a cosmetic smile redesign is the best way to feel younger, more attractive, and able to share your true self. When you quit trying to hide your teeth, you are free to put all your energy into your work, play – everything!

At Parsons Smile Center in Flushing, Dr. Fady Salha carefully contours perfect smiles for our Whitestone smile design patients.

We also make sure our Whitestone smile makeover patients are completely relaxed during treatment. If you are afraid of dentists, or have had negative experiences in the past, rest assured that we understand how you feel and our caring dental team will do our best to alleviate your concerns.

Celebrity Smiles In Flushing

Veneers in Flushing How do celebrities obtain brilliant white smiles that are always ready for the red carpet or a close-up? Do they avoid coffee? Not likely. Every star-watching magazine is full of pictures of famous people holding Starbucks cups. Do they avoid tobacco? Some probably do, but many actors and fashion models with dazzling white smiles are smokers.

Very few people (famous and non-famous alike) with perfect teeth were born with them. (…Sure, no one is born with teeth, but you know what I mean.) Celebrities have perfect smiles because they have undergone cosmetic dentistry.

Guess what? You can also have a smile like a supermodel or television news anchor because Dr. Fady Salha at Parsons Smile Center has as much experience and training in advanced cosmetic dentistry as any Hollywood cosmetic dentist.

Dr. Salha has been providing smile makeovers for Flushing and College Point dental patients since 1990. Tooth whitening is the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure in Flushing. Tooth bleaching quickly perks up your teeth and makes you feel like smiling all the time!

Porcelain veneers are used often in Whitestone cosmetic dental offices because they correct many problems including misshapen teeth, cracks and chips, and discolored teeth. Teeth that have been worn down extensively can also be repaired with veneers. Preparing a tooth for a porcelain veneer is minimally invasive. The latest veneers do not require the removal of healthy enamel. Another plus: veneers are usually less expensive than complete crowns!

Tooth bleaching and veneers are just two of the many cosmetic dental procedures performed at Parsons Smile Center. Schedule a Flushing cosmetic dental consultation today by calling 718-939-0862. At our office, you will always receive VIP treatment, without the annoying paparazzi!

We look forward to helping you achieve a celebrity smile.

(Note that the celebrities pictured above are not affiliated with our site; they just have great smiles!)

Beautifying With Bonding

Flushing fix chipped tooth

A cosmetic dentist’s tool kit is filled with handy tools for fixing most types of cosmetic tooth troubles. In the past few years, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and same-day teeth whitening have attracted a lot of attention. In today’s post, we are going to talk about an effective, yet relatively uncelebrated dental treatment that has been used successfully for decades. We’re talking about dental bonding.

The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is strong and natural looking. It is applied to the teeth while soft and putty-like, and then hardened (or cured) with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

Dentists use bonding to correct tooth issues caused by decay, chips, or cracks. Large spaces between healthy teeth can be filled with bonding material, and bonding can protect tooth roots if the gums have pulled back.

Discolored teeth can also be lightened with bonding. Since bonding material is easily molded, teeth can be lengthened or re-shaped to more pleasing proportions. Bonding is ordinarily used as part of a total cosmetic dental smile makeover.

I’m Dr. Fady Salha, of Parsons Smile Center in Flushing. My practice, Parsons Smile Center, offers dental implants, general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, and restorative dentistry.

Unhappy With Your Smile? Time to Change That!

Denver Extreme Smile Makeover

Hello Flushing! If you are unhappy with your smile, it’s time to change that.

I am Dr. Fady Salha. I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry in Flushing, New York, for years. Performing extreme smile makeovers makes my profession extremely fulfilling.

When I design a smile, I carefully analyze the macroesthetics (larger facial characteristics and relationships between bone structure, tooth size, and shape), and microesthetics (more delicate features such as tooth shade and degree of translucency). There is no one-size-fits-all treatment, each Parsons Smile Center smile design is as unique as you are.

Whether you have chipped teeth, yellow enamel, a broken dental bridge, or even missing teeth, there are procedures to fix your dental problems and give you a smile that you will be proud to show off.

A smile makeover in Flushing at Parsons Smile Center typically involves two or more procedures, which may include: porcelain veneers, tooth implants, crown lengthening, dental bonding, and teeth bleaching. Of course, just one procedure such as tooth-colored fillings can make a world of difference.

 


Whitening vs Bleaching At Parsons Smile Center

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service that Parsons Smile Center Center provides in-office or through a take home kit. Results vary, but most patients experience significant lightening that lasts up to a year. Our Flushing teeth whitening patients affirm that a whiter smile boosts self confidence and can take years of wear and discoloration away to reveal a brighter smile.

Teeth whitening and teeth bleaching, however, mean two different things. Surface cracks and stains develop on tooth enamel, exposing the yellower dentin below the surface. Discoloration can be the result of the natural aging process, illness, genetics, or dark colored food or drink. Foods and beverages that are both dark colored and acidic – like wine, coffee, and tomato sauce  – have even greater staining power.

Teeth whitener can refer to any product used to remove stains from tooth enamel: toothpaste, do it yourself strips, and some mouthwashes are safe and competitively-priced and can whiten teeth with continued, regular use. The extent of whitening varies, and it takes dedicated,  use to see results.

Whitening products that do not contain bleach can usually make teeth two to four shades lighter. These are a good choice for Denver men and women with sensitive teeth and gums that can react to products containing harsher whitening chemicals. Parsons Smile Center counsels pregnant or nursing mothers to opt for the non-bleach whitening products.

Teeth bleaching is used to describe a tooth whitening product that contains a form of bleach, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, in varying concentrations. For best results, teeth bleaching should be done in-office by your cosmetic dentist. Bleaching can often achieve more noticeable results, sometimes up to seven shades lighter. Intrinsic stains on the dentin, as well as surface stains can be effectively lightened under an experienced dentist’s supervision.
