Cosmetic Dentistry Services in Melville, NY

Services provided by Dr. Shaw include the following:

Fillings

Tooth decay results in the need to restore cavities to sound dental health. When modest in size and complexity, the restorative option of choice would usually be a tooth colored “composite” filling, which is much more esthetic than the older silver (amalgam) fillings, and are bonded, “chemically adhered”, to the tooth.

Veneers

Porcelain veneers are excellent esthetic restorations for some damaged, discolored and misaligned teeth. Veneers are permanent restorations, strongly bonded (adhered) to tooth structure. The continued advance in bonding agents make veneers predictable, long term restorations, where indicated. However, not all teeth are appropriately restored with veneers-we can help you decide whether you are a candidate for this service. Click here to read more.

Bonding

Bonding is a technique that allows your Doctor to chemically adhere a tooth colored resin to your existing tooth, replacing lost structure in a conservative, painless process, oftentimes precluding the need for more complex, more expensive procedures.
