Cosmetic Dentist Serving Long Island City

woman smiling with bright white smileMany people wish they could improve the appearance of their smile, and for good reason – studies have shown that adults with white, straight teeth are perceived by their peers as younger, more successful, more confident, and more attractive, among other positive attributes. Sadly, even healthy smiles can suffer from the effects of certain foods, injuries, and aging. If you’re struggling with chips, cracks, gaps, or other flaws, please turn to Dr. Ishwinder Saran and his team here at LIC Dental Associates. Our Long Island City practice offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry services that promise exceptional quality and seamless results you’ll be dazzled by.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Everyone wants a beautifully bright smile, but many patients suffer from stained or discolored teeth due to a variety of reasons, including age, genetics, coffee, wine, certain medications, and much more. If you’ve got a big event coming up that you’d love to look your very best for, in-office teeth whitening from LIC Dental Associates could be the right choice for you! With the help of a high-grade bleaching gel and an advanced light, we can improve the color of your smile by several shades over the course of only one convenient, hour-long appointment.

At-Home Whitening Kits

Of course, some patients may prefer to achieve a more gradual change when it comes to improving their smile. Dr. Saran and the rest of our team are happy to accommodate this preference with the help of our at-home whitening kits. We’ll provide you with the bleaching gel and the custom-made oral trays – all you need to do is wear both together for a certain amount of time each day. This whitening method is flexible to your schedule, and you can do it effectively in the comfort of your home while watching TV or reading. Better yet, many patients see results after only one application, with the most noticeable results occurring after a couple of weeks of use. 

Tooth-Colored Fillings

In the past, fillings were typically made from an amalgam material, and while they treated cavities adequately enough, their silver appearance made them stand out dramatically in an otherwise beautifully natural smile. Thankfully, Dr. Saran offers tooth-colored fillings as an advanced alternative that provides both greater health benefits and an aesthetically pleasing look. Our Long Island City practice offers a wide variety of shades so that we can be sure to match your filling to your smile as closely as possible; you may not even be able to see it once it’s placed! Additionally, tooth-colored fillings offer patients a decreased risk of temperature-related discomfort and a much more conservative placement that helps to preserve the health of the tooth.

Porcelain Veneers

When pursuing cosmetic dentistry, many patients feel overwhelmed by all the individual services they need to achieve their ideal smile. If you’d like nothing more than to give certain teeth or even your whole look a “do-over” all at once, look no further than veneers. Made from high-quality, wafer-thin dental porcelain, veneers are designed to hide any and all flaws underneath a brand-new, painstakingly personalized appearance that’s sure to dazzle.

All-Ceramic Restorations

At LIC Dental Associates, we believe in providing dental solutions that give patients the best of both worlds when it comes to health and beauty. Our crowns, inlays, onlays, and other custom-made restorations are crafted from quality materials that resemble the color of your teeth, allowing us to precisely personalize them so that they blend in seamlessly with the rest of your natural smile. Light is even reflected off the surface in a near-identical fashion! These new restorations also allow us to perform your care in a much more conservative fashion, which means that we can preserve as much as your original tooth structure as possible during the procedure.

Botox and Dermafillers

Long before Botox injections were used for cosmetic treatments, they were used for medical purposes. As a therapeutic tool, Botox is an essential part of TMJ treatment. Our Botox specialists can help relieve painful conditions triggered by problematic muscles that cause involuntary muscle clenching and facial
