What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry uses whitening treatments, restorations, or orthodontics to improve the appearance of your smile. These procedures are elective, so they typically aren’t covered by dental insurance, but they can still encourage optimal oral health. 

What are some examples of cosmetic dentistry?

At Dental Arts of Brooklyn, the team offers several types of cosmetic dentistry, including:

Cosmetic bonding

Bonding uses tooth-colored resin to repair damage to your tooth enamel, like chips, cracks, or pitting. The resin dries quickly, so you can bite and chew immediately after its application.

Contouring and reshaping

If you have unusually shaped teeth or a “gummy” smile, the team might recommend cosmetic contouring or reshaping. During treatment, your provider uses a hard or soft tissue laser to remove excess enamel or gum tissue, improving the appearance of your smile.


Veneers are thin shells bonded to the front of your teeth. They cover minor oral imperfections, like a broken tooth or gaps between the teeth.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening (or bleaching) uses hydrogen peroxide gel to remove stains from your teeth. At Dental Arts of Brooklyn, the team offers in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening trays. Both procedures can make your smile significantly whiter for several months.


Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of removable plastic aligners. Treatment is quicker and more discreet than with traditional metal braces.

Dental implants

Dental implants are small posts that your dentist inserts into the empty sockets where your teeth used to be. They integrate with your bone after placement, providing a base for crowns, bridges, or implant-anchored dentures.

Tooth colored fillings

Metal fillings are tough and long lasting, but they don’t blend in with your teeth. At Dental Arts of Brooklyn, the team offers tooth colored fillings made of resin. These fillings look like your natural tooth enamel and can last for up to 10 years.*

After the team knows what you like and dislike about your smile, they can recommend treatments.

What type of cosmetic dentistry will benefit me?

To determine the type of cosmetic dentistry that will most benefit you, your Dental Arts of Brooklyn provider completes an oral exam, takes a series of 3D digital X-rays, and asks about your goals. They use that information to make custom recommendations that align with your budget and needs.
