Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is an oral health specialty that uses advanced tools and technologies to improve the physical appearance of your teeth and gums.

In addition to making your smile more attractive, cosmetic dentistry can improve your oral health. By replacing missing or damaged teeth, it’s possible to lower your risk of gum recession, bone loss, and other serious oral health issues.

What services does cosmetic dentistry include?

At Manhattan Dental Design, Dr. Tchoi offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry services, including:


Crowns are tooth-shaped coverings placed on top of molars or premolars. They address damage, decay, or discoloration and restore an affected tooth to its near-original shape, strength, and appearance. Crowns are tough and long-lasting. With good oral hygiene, they typically last 10-15 years.

Dental implants

Dental implants are metal posts that provide a strong, supportive foundation for restorations like bridges, implant-supported dentures, and crowns. Dr. Tchoi places dental implants into your jaw during an outpatient procedure. Following treatment, your bone extends around each post, cementing them in place.


Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that corrects crowded or crooked teeth and misaligned jaws. 

Instead of relying on rubber bands, wires, and brackets like metal braces, Invisalign uses a thermoplastic called SmartTrack®. Invisalign aligners fit snugly over your teeth and often provide results within 6-12 months.*

Teeth whitening

If you have stained, yellow, or generally discolored teeth, consider teeth whitening. Dr. Tchoi provides teeth whitening using the Philips Zoom! Chairside whitening system. Zoom! safely eradicates stains in under an hour, transforming the color and condition of your smile.


Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain bonded to your teeth. Veneers mask a variety of oral imperfections, including chipped or cracked teeth, unusually shaped teeth, and teeth with gaps or spaces between them.

Smile makeover

If you have multiple cosmetic issues that you’d like to correct, Dr. Tchoi might recommend a smile makeover. During a smile makeover, Dr. Tchoi combines several techniques, like teeth whitening and veneers, to help you achieve a brilliant, Hollywood-worthy smile.

What does cosmetic dentistry involve?

No two cosmetic dentistry treatment plans are exactly alike. Before making any recommendations, Dr. Tchoi conducts an oral exam, reviews your oral health history, and asks what you do and don’t like about your smile. 

After gathering this information, he develops a custom treatment plan that aligns with your budget and needs.
