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 Oakland Gardens, we can restore the beauty of your smile, your oral health, and your confidence with cosmetic dentistry.
Invisalign®Invisalign® is an alternative to traditional braces. Rather than metal brackets and wires, Invisalign® is a series of clear, rigid plastic aligners. These aligners are created from a 3-dimensional image of your mouth. They are a unique treatment method, as aligners are removable (traditional braces are not).

Teeth WhiteningThere are plenty of products along the oral care aisles of your local stores. Whitening toothpaste contains abrasives that scrub away minor surface stains. Products like strips, gels, and pens all contain low levels of bleaching agents. These products can help with some minor stains, but they don’t usually provide the results that most people are looking for.

Dental BondingYour smile is often the very first impression you leave with people. Moreover, first impressions are important. Your teeth are the main component of your smile. When they are marked with imperfections – whether it’s chips, cracks, gaps or misshapen teeth – your smile is affected. You may be giving off the wrong first impression.

Dental VeneersPlacing your veneers begins with a local anesthetic. We then trim, or remove, a small portion of the enamel on the surface of the affected teeth. Next, impressions of your mouth are taken, which are sent to our lab. There, your veneers are designed and created. It can take up to two weeks for your veneers to be completed. You may not need temporary veneers, but they can be provided for aesthetics.

Dental CrownsThere are a few different types of materials that are used for dental crowns. Metal (silver or gold) has been around the longest. Metal crowns are also unsurpassed in strength, being essentially indestructible. They can last 50 years or more. However, despite their strength, they do have one major disadvantage – their color makes them extremely visible in your mouth.

Aesthetic Gum LiftAlso known as a crown lengthening, an aesthetic gum lift is a surgical procedure that is designed to get rid of excess gum tissue. In some cases, a small amount of bone may also need to be removed to achieve the desired results, but this is not always necessary. The ultimate goal of an aesthetic gum lift is to restore a more natural, even gum line and give your teeth a longer, more natural appearance.
