Cosmetic Dentistry

Are you unhappy about smile imperfections such as minor chips, cracks, dental stains, and misalignment? 

The field of cosmetic dentistry offers several techniques to improve the balance, proportions, and overall appearance of your smile.

At Brooklyn Heights Dental®, we can help you achieve a more beautiful smile in as little as one or two dental appointments.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?


Cosmetic dentistry is any dental treatment that aims to give the patient a more attractive smile. This can involve individual treatments like teeth whitening or Invisalign®, or a combination of treatments designed to achieve a complete smile makeover.

Cosmetic dentistry can correct dental issues like:

Discolored Teeth

Chipped, Cracked, or Damaged Teeth

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

The goal of our cosmetic treatments is to deliver a smile that accentuates your natural beauty. As a result, patients can enjoy several benefits such as:

  • Brighter, healthier-looking smile
  • Restored self-confidence
  • Youthful, more attractive appearance
  • More balanced, proportionate, and symmetrical smile
  • Better functioning bite with improved comfort

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments


If you hope to straighten your teeth without traditional metal braces, Invisalign® may be for you. This treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom-fitted and virtually invisible. Dr. Stanislaus is a certified Invisalign provider with special training to provide effective treatment.


Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers provide bright and naturally white smiles and can straighten teeth, close gaps between teeth, and correct teeth that have been chipped. Because porcelain closely resembles the refractive characteristics of tooth enamel, the results are incredibly natural-looking. Many of our patients from throughout Brooklyn choose this option because veneers can mask a range of imperfections and produce great results.

Porcelain Veneers

Teeth Whitening

Even the quickest, most affordable treatments can boost your confidence and completely transform your smile. If you have suffered from stains and discoloration, our team can help you achieve the brighter, whiter smile you desire. With safe, professional teeth whitening treatments, we can remove dental discoloration with limited sensitivity and results that transform your appearance.


Smile Makeover

Our team can provide you with a complete smile makeover at our Brooklyn practice. Together, we will work to develop a personalized treatment plan involving multiple cosmetic procedures to redesign your smile. We utilize state-of-the-art technology to offer you the most effective aesthetic treatments available. 

Smile Makeovers

Dental Bonding

Minor chips, gaps, and other flaws can be concealed with dental bonding, a tooth-colored, composite resin. Because the color is matched to your teeth, it blends in seamlessly. Bonding is a more affordable solution and alternative to porcelain veneers with similarly natural-looking results.

Dental Bonding

Gum Contouring

If you are unhappy with excess gum tissue covering a portion of your teeth, the team at our Brooklyn Heights practice can contour your gums for a more balanced, beautiful smile. Our conservative treatments deliver exceptional results with minor discomfort and minimal recovery time.

General Dentist vs. Cosmetic Dentist What's the Difference?

In many cases, cosmetic dentists are also general dentists. Meanwhile, many general dentistry treatments have cosmetic benefits, and vice versa. Here is a look at the primary differences between these two disciplines: 

General Dentist

  • Provides routine dental cleanings and checkups
  • Works to prevent cavities and gum disease
  • Focuses on the patient's oral health 

Cosmetic Dentist

  • Focuses on the aesthetics of a person's teeth and smile
  • Makes changes to healthy teeth in order to improve symmetry and other smile characteristics
  • Can provide a complete smile makeover

Are You a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?

The cosmetic dentistry treatments we offer at our Brooklyn practice can help conceal or correct a number of cosmetic blemishes and concerns, including:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Dental staining or discoloration
  • Dental misalignment
  • Gapped or overlapping teeth
  • Uneven gum line or gummy smile
  • Misshaped, crooked, or disproportionate teeth

Your Oral Health and Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment

The best candidates for cosmetic dentistry should have good oral health without any signs of tooth decay or gum disease.

Preparatory Treatment

If an underlying condition is detected during your initial consultation, our dentists will place a dental filling, perform periodontal therapy, or recommend another restorative dentistry treatment.

Cosmetic vs. Restorative Care

If you require more extensive dental work such as replacement of missing teeth or the elimination of serious decay, a customized restorative dentistry treatment plan may be more beneficial.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Cosmetic dentistry treatments are not painful. When needed, your dentist will give you anesthesia to numb an area and keep you as comfortable as possible. Some procedures, like teeth whitening, require no numbing agent at all and can be completed in as little as one hour.

Will Cosmetic Dentistry Damage My Teeth?

No, but some treatments will require altering your teeth. For example, porcelain veneers require removing a small layer of enamel from the front surface of your tooth. Using crowns to enhance the appearance of one or more teeth will require a significant reduction of the natural tooth. But you can rest assured that none of these alterations will compromise the health of your tooth.

Why Do Non-Smokers Make the Best Cosmetic Dentistry Candidates?

Smoking is one of the leading causes of tooth loss and decay, and because cosmetic dentistry requires a healthy smile foundation, it only makes sense that it wouldn't be advisable to smoke after a cosmetic dentistry treatment. Smoking also increases your risk of other oral and physical health issues. If you are considering cosmetic dentistry, take the opportunity to stop smoking permanently and start a new chapter of improved health in your life.

Which Cosmetic Treatment Is Right for Me?

Each patient's smile is unique, so each treatment plan must be tailored to their needs. That is why a consultation with one of our dentists is required prior to any treatment. Our dentists will assess your oral health needs and your cosmetic goals to come up with a treatment plan that achieves the smile you envision.
