Cosmetic Dentistry

You can have a vibrant, healthy smile! Most people who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth do not realize the numerous ways that cosmetic dentistry can heal a smile. Cosmetic dentistry can correct crooked teeth, spaces between your teeth, stained or discolored teeth, chipped teeth, broken or missing teeth and “gummy” smiles. The team at Berry Hill Dentistry in Syosset NY will create a customized treatment plan for you based on your age, desires, and financial goals.

Porcelain Veneers Syosset NY

Imagine a whiter, more brilliant smile! Porcelain veneers are a type of conservative cosmetic dentistry that makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth. If you have chipped teeth, crooked teeth, gaps in teeth, or dull or stained teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution for you. Your dentist will skillfully bond and shape thin strips of porcelain to your teeth, creating a straight, brilliant smile that enhances your appearance and your self esteem.

Tooth Whitening Syosset NY

Imagine removing surface stains and having the white smile you had when you were a teenager! Anyone can have the confidence that comes from having a brighter, whiter smile. Tooth whitening with BriteSmile™ is safe, effective, and long lasting.

The BriteSmile™ tooth whitening system is a powerful, in-office procedure that produces fast, dramatic results. Dr. Cottone or Dr. Schmitz will apply a specialized gel to your teeth using a customized tray, similar to a mouthpiece. The tray is comfortable, allowing you to hold it in place for about an hour. During that time, a specialized light source interacts with the gel to break up even the strongest stains and discolorations. In about an hour, you will have a smile that looks like it did years ago! Consider teeth whitening in Syosset NY.

Porcelain Bridges

When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth cause you to chew differently and may cause mouth pain. Additionally, as your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. A porcelain bridge, custom designed by your doctor at Berry Hill Dentistry, keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth or crowns on either side of the missing tooth. They are semi-permanent, meaning that they can only be affixed or removed by a dentist and are a long-term restorative solution to your damaged smile.

Porcelain Crowns

Your teeth undergo a tremendous amount of wear and tear during your lifetime. Teeth may show this wear in a variety of ways, including discoloration, chipping, and cracking. Crowns restore your teeth and your smile – making them brilliant once again. Porcelain crowns can be made out of porcelain pressed to metal (or are porcelain throughout) and can be shaded to match your other teeth. Crowns made of precious metal are also an option. After some tooth preparation, crowns are specially fitted to give you back the look and functionality of your smile. If you have pain when chewing or temperature sensitivity, ask Dr. Cottone or Dr. Schmitz if crowns could be right for you.

Tooth-colored Fillings

When the decay has been taken out of the tooth, it is replaced with “filling” material. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned out portion of the tooth. With advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings. You may even elect to remove your old silver fillings in favor of new, undetectable tooth-colored fillings.


Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth without reducing the structure of the tooth in most cases. Then, Dr. Cottone or Dr. Schmitz will sculpt the material to create a natural-looking tooth. Bonding corrects chipped and broken teeth, as well as discolored teeth, and can, in some cases, correct gaps. It is less expensive than veneers but doesn’t last as long and can stain. A benefit of bonding is that generally, the natural structure of the tooth can be maintained.

Gum Contouring

If you have a gummy smile, you may be a candidate for cosmetic contouring of your gum tissue. Dr. Cottone and Dr. Schmitz can give you a more aesthetic appearance when you smile by shaping and sculpting your gums, using a laser to minimize recovery time. This procedure can make a dramatic difference in the look of your smile, especially when combined with other cosmetic dentistry.
