Cosmetic Dentistry - Middletown, NY
Gain a More Confident Look
If you have relatively healthy teeth and gums but are still displeased with the appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry may be the right choice. For instance, Dr. Udoff can place porcelain veneers – thin, translucent shells – on the surface of cracked, chipped, broken, badly discolored, misshapen, or uneven teeth. Porcelain veneers are custom-crafted to fit each individual smile, free of potentially harmful metals, and can conceal any visible dental flaws.
For patients who desire brighter, whiter smiles, we can administer a professional-grade teeth whitening treatment. Other patients may benefit from Invisalign®, an outstanding alternative to traditional metal braces in which a series of clear, plastic trays are used to correct misaligned teeth. Patients can achieve picture-perfect smiles, and no one will even know they are undergoing treatment. If more than one cosmetic treatment is required for the patient’s desired result, Dr. Udoff may recommend a complete smile makeover. Contact us today here in Middletown, NY to schedule a holistic consultation.
Orthopedically Driven Orthodontics
Orthodontic treatment can do much more than simply give you an attractive smile – it can relieve TMD-related pain, maximize the effectiveness of your oral hygiene routine, and create a much stronger bite as well. Dr. Udoff offers Gneuromuscular Orthodontics here in-office, as well as Invisalign® clear aligners for a more aesthetically pleasing treatment process.
If you have chipped, cracked, broken, misshapen, discolored, or uneven front teeth, porcelain veneers are an excellent remedy. These tiny shells are crafted from high-quality porcelain, which mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel and are placed onto the surfaces of front teeth to conceal any flaws. Veneers are customized for each individual smile and are strong and durable, in many cases lasting for a decade or longer.
If you are interested in the healthiest result possible for your smile, Dr. Udoff strongly encourages you to invest in metal-free restorative work. Our chosen materials are 100% free of mercury, which can have numerous hazardous effects on the body over time. They’re also highly natural-looking, less sensitive to changes in temperature, and fully biocompatible.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the number of dental imperfections your smile is facing, consider pursuing a personalized makeover with Dr. Udoff’s assistance. He will help you determine the services that best fit your projected goal, resulting in personalized improvements that leave patients feeling truly self-confident.
Minimally invasive dental bonding can help to restore the appearance and strength of teeth that are decayed, damaged, broken, chipped, widely spaced, or discolored. The composite resin material is first chosen to match to your natural tooth color and is then sculpted onto the necessary tooth. Dr. Udoff shapes the material so it looks natural and beautiful. A special light is then applied to harden the material. Dr. Udoff buffs the tooth and makes any final adjustments before you leave our practice with your new, improved smile. Dental bonding is often used to replace old, highly conspicuous silver amalgam dental fillings as well.
Have you noticed that your teeth aren’t looking as bright and white as they possibly once did? If so, Dr. Udoff can administer an extra-strength teeth whitening treatment for patients. Teeth whitening is the simplest treatment for enhancing nearly any smile. After one office visit, teeth can appear up to eight shades whiter. Age, tobacco use, certain medications, and excessive coffee, tea, soda, and wine consumption all contribute to the teeth becoming yellow, grey, dingy, or stained. A teeth whitening treatment is capable of restoring that radiant glow for picture-perfect pearly whites.
