A beautiful, confident smile can be an asset in almost any area of your life. Whether it’s a job interview, first date, or an important meeting, having a smile you are proud of can help you shine. Even results of scientific studies have proven that people who smile frequently live longer, happier lives.
Today’s society places a lot of importance on image, and with the popularity of social media, we are constantly confronted with pictures and videos of ourselves, which can make it difficult to ignore visible smile imperfections. The reality is that few of us are born with flawless teeth, and most of us have at least a couple things we might like to change about our smile. If you are ready to conquer your dental challenges and achieve a healthy, radiant smile that improves your overall appearance, world-renowned NYC cosmetic dentist Michael Kosdon, DDS can design a custom smile makeover just for you. Using advanced cosmetic dentistry options, like porcelain veneers and other high-quality aesthetic restorations, it’s possible for your ideal smile to become a reality.
How does your smile make you feel when you see it in the mirror? Are there changes you would like to make that would improve your self-confidence?
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a broad range of treatments and procedures that can correct a variety of perceived dental flaws. With today’s advances in technology and materials, it’s possible for Dr. Kosdon to transform your smile in just a few visits or less, depending on your individual needs and goals. When cosmetic dentistry is performed in a way that accounts for not only how your smile can be improved, but your facial characteristics, lifestyle, and personality as well, the results can be spectacular. Dr. Kosdon is a true artist and uses the principles of design, color, and psychology to make you and your smile appear more attractive. His philosophy is to always perform the most conservative procedure(s) to get predictable results that suit your face and personality.
Changing your smile can truly change your life. Often, our patients who receive porcelain veneers or undergo other cosmetic dentistry procedures are inspired by the appearance of their new smile, and many go on to pursue new goals and life achievements. Exploring your options with Dr. Kosdon can help start your journey toward the rewards of a beautiful, confident smile.
Cosmetic dentistry can bring out your natural beauty and have a positive impact on your overall well-being. In addition to affecting the smile’s appearance, worn, chipped, broken, or gapped teeth can affect your gums and jaw. Through the application of porcelain veneers, Dr. Kosdon can restore damaged teeth and bond them together to create long-lasting results that benefit your dental health and protect against damage. He can also conceal deep stains and discoloration for a permanently whiter, brighter smile. When improving your smile, Dr. Kosdon is careful to consider every aspect of your dental condition to ensure you are able to achieve the healthiest, most attractive smile possible.
In Dr. Kosdon’s experience, transforming your smile not only has an effect on your physical appearance, but it can often bring about positive life changes as well. Insecurities about the way your smile looks can affect how you relate to the world, making you uncomfortable and shy around others. When Dr. Kosdon completes a smile makeover, many times patients who have struggled with low self-confidence find that they become more outgoing and comfortable around other people. As confidence grows, new opportunities and relationships emerge that can alter the course of one’s life for the better.
Your smile and eyes can be your most engaging facial characteristics when you are communicating with others. Dr. Kosdon designs smiles with every facial characteristic in mind to create the most attractive results. He believes that eye color, skin tone, and even personality must complement the smile to achieve an optimal overall appearance. He uses the Golden Proportions philosophy to guide the design of each smile and create aesthetic harmony among features. Once your smile matches your personality and style, you will feel and look more attractive!
Many patients become more outgoing after they undergo a smile makeover. As a result of their new smile, patients often begin to emit and attract more positive energy into their lives. Their improved appearance helps them feel better about what they see in the mirror, which makes getting out and enjoying life more fun and exciting!
A nice smile can have a positive impact on your career, even if you are not an actor or model. Your smile projects confidence and says a lot about who you are, and a self-assured smile may help you appear more competent and professional. People enjoy being surrounded by others who smile, as they tend to be more inviting and easy-going. In a competitive job market, you want to stand out amongst equally qualified candidates, and a healthy, beautiful smile may provide you with the extra boost you need to score the job or promotion.
Many men and women turn to BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectable fillers, and even plastic surgery to achieve a more youthful appearance. Unfortunately, the effects of these costly treatments are temporary and require regular touch-ups to maintain the results. In many cases, a smile makeover performed by Dr. Kosdon can reduce key signs of facial aging with long-lasting results that help you look happier, younger, and healthier. Rejuvenating the structure of your teeth with porcelain restorations often provides better support for your lips, which can reduce the appearance of sunken cheeks and creases around the mouth. The porcelain material also conceals age-related tooth discoloration and resists future stains, keeping your smile white and bright for years to come.
Cosmetic dentistry techniques can repair damaged teeth and prevent future damage from occurring. The extremely durable, high-quality porcelain we use to create our aesthetic restorations reinforces the strength and structure of cracked, broken, and badly decayed teeth to eliminate the potential for more severe damage. Improving overall dental health is always one of Dr. Kosdon’s fundamental concerns when he performs any type of procedure, as healthy teeth and gums are the primary components of a beautiful, long-lasting smile.
Traumatic injuries and accidents that damage the teeth can have a lasting psychological and physical impact. Many times, Dr. Kosdon sees patients whose smiles have been injured in an accident, either recently or in years prior, that would like to repair their smile and move forward with their lives. A smile restored with advanced cosmetic dentistry techniques often helps these patients put their trauma behind them.
"I think Dr. Kosdon and his amazing staff are the best dentistry in LA. I have had nothing but great experiences here. Dr. Kosdon is no only a great Dentist, but he is also one of the friendliest, coolest people I have met! His office makes you feel at home."C.J.
Tooth-colored fillings are becoming the standard for filling cavities, offering greater aesthetic benefits and reducing the risks associated with the amalgam mercury fillings of the past. Using the same durable ceramic material used in porcelain dental veneers and crowns, tooth-colored fillings are composed of a composite resin and bonded to the teeth. They not only serve to better your dental health by treating cavities, they also look great and are made to look like your surrounding teeth.
Porcelain crowns and dental bridges can be used to restore teeth that have been badly damaged and weakened by decay, trauma, or wear. Crowns can be used to entirely cover and strengthen partially damaged teeth, and a bridge serves as a fixed, natural-looking replacement for missing teeth. All-porcelain crowns and bridges are strong, durable restorations that are aesthetically pleasing and function naturally. For decades, placement of dental crowns and bridges have been relied upon as effective, long-lasting options for tooth restoration and replacement.
