How do you feel about your smile? Are you content with the way it looks? Do you often find yourself thinking of a straight, lovely smile that you can be proud to show off to friends and family? It is possible to straighten teeth, but most adults do not like the treatment to accomplish this: braces. Adults generally find the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces unappealing, making teeth straightening options very limited. So, what can people do to achieve the straight smile of their dreams? The Luminous Smile at South Shore Dental Care, located in Massapequa Park, NY offers a personalized alternative to braces in the form of Invisalign.
Adults who seek straighter teeth want to avoid the metal appliances of traditional braces, as the tension utilized can apply a lot of pressure and many see the aesthetics as somewhat juvenile. Invisalign differs from braces as they use clear, customized aligners to move teeth into position. There are several sets of aligners, which are rotated as the process continues, which slowly push your teeth into a straight position and give you a beautiful smile. The aligners are clear, which allow you to have a natural appearance, and they are removable, so you can continue to eat your favorite meals, brush your teeth, etc.
What is the Treatment Like?
When you arrive at our office for your initial consultation, we will take 3D images of your mouth and plan the treatment. The data and images are sent to a certified Invisalign laboratory, where professional technicians will create your customized aligners. When finished, we will receive the aligners and have you return to our office. We will present your aligners, tell you which set to start with, how long to wear the set, which aligners to use afterward, etc. Within 9-18 months, you will have the vibrant, straight smile you always wanted.

Are you constantly dreaming of having a stellar, vibrant smile? Do you wish you could achieve a celebrity-like smile and “wow” everyone in the room? Everyone wants a brilliant, lovely smile, but the unfortunate fact is most people do not have a radiant set of teeth. Teeth crowd together during developmental stages and experience stains from food and beverages. Others experience oral injuries, i.e. chipped or cracked teeth, which pushes the dreams of a perfect smile further and further away. Luckily, The Luminous Smile at South Shore Dental Care, located in Massapequa Park, NY, can restore your smile and help you achieve the picture-perfect set of teeth with cosmetic veneers.
What are Veneers?
No one has a natural set of perfect teeth. Outside of the crowding/spacing of development and stains received from food, teeth will naturally turn into a dull, yellow color. This can cause a lot of frustration for those seeking whiter, more aesthetically pleasing teeth, and it can have a negative effect on self-esteem. Porcelain veneers, offered by the expert duo of Dr. Dory Stutman and Dr. Khalida Stutman, can correct these imperfections with a simple treatment. Veneers are simply thin, personalized pieces of porcelain, which are bonded to teeth, correcting chips and cracks in teeth, fixing size or color issues, and presenting a perfect, white look for the teeth.
What is the Procedure for Getting Veneers?
When you arrive for you initial consultation at our state-of-the-art office, our incredible team and talented doctors will examine your teeth and create a plan for the procedure. Impressions and images may be taken to help the process. Your customized veneers will be created in a laboratory by our professional team. We will have you back for a follow-up appointment so we can bond the veneers to your teeth and give you an amazing smile. It may be necessary to remove some enamel from your tooth before the bonding process, but the entire procedure is completely painless. After bonding, we will polish off the veneers and make any necessary adjustments. When complete, you will walk out of our office with a celebrity-like, glowing smile.
