If you have stained, crooked, or missing permanent teeth, consider cosmetic dentistry. There are various treatments that can minimize imperfections and transform your smile.

To make an appointment, call the office in New York City, or book online today.
Cosmetic dentistry uses restorations, whitening treatments, and orthodontic appliances to improve the appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile.
Most cosmetic procedures are elective, but some offer the benefit of improved oral health. For example, by replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant, you can reduce the risk of gum recession and bone loss.
Dr. Cucereanu offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain bonded to the front of your teeth. Veneers cover up minor imperfections, like crooked, overlapping, or unusually-shaped teeth. With routine checkups and good oral hygiene, veneers can last 12-15 years*.
Teeth whitening uses hydrogen peroxide gel to remove stains from the surface of your teeth. Dr. Cucereanu offers in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening kits. The results of teeth whitening aren’t permanent, but they typically last 3-4 months*.
If you’re missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Cucereanu might recommend dental implants. Implants are titanium posts inserted into your jaw. Once placed, the implants fuse with your bone, providing a base for crowns, bridges, or implant-retained dentures.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that uses removable, plastic aligners to straighten your teeth and jaw. Invisalign aligners aren’t made from metal like traditional braces. As a result, they’re safe for pregnant people and those with allergies.
Botox is an injectable that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet by causing your muscles to relax. A series of Botox injections can smooth out your skin and help you look younger. Dr. Cucereanu administers Botox injections on an outpatient basis.
Instead of helping your muscles relax, fillers plump up your skin. They also encourage the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that keep your skin youthful and vibrant.
Only a qualified dentist, like Dr. Cucereanu, can determine if you’re a candidate for cosmetic dentistry. After an oral exam, a series of X-rays, and a discussion of your goals, Dr. Cucereanu can make treatment recommendations that align with your budget and needs.
