Cosmetic dentistry can create the bright natural looking smile you deserve. Whether you are interested in a complete smile design, restoring chipped teeth or want to whiten, we can improve your smile. Cosmetic Dentistry is composed of several different types of dental procedures. New Dimension Dentistry of New York, NY offers some information on the cosmetic procedures she offers.
Porcelain Veneers – Fingernail-thin shells are adhered to the front surface of the tooth. Veneers can fix several aesthetic problems with just one treatment.
Whitening – There are at home whitening kits and in office whitening treatments. At-home bleaching kits use carbamide peroxide solutions to oxidize and bleach your teeth. In-office bleaching (also called chair side, light-activated or one-hour bleaching) uses hydrogen peroxide gels and a heat or light source; these treatments lighten your teeth by six to eight shades in one to three visits, and sometimes less.
Bonding – With the use of bonding gaps, chips, broken teeth, spots and discoloration can all be repaired with bonding. You can regain your smile and confidence.
Crowns and Bridges – Crowns (or caps) are dental restorations that are placed over a tooth when conservative restorations are insufficient to restore form and function. A bridge serves to replace a missing tooth or teeth.
Invisalign – The invisible way to straighten teeth. Using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners.

Crowns and bridges are dental prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants. Unlike dentures, which can be taken out, crowns and bridges can only be removed by a dentist. Dr. Giraldo of New Dimension Dentistry in New York, specializes in crowns and bridges and would like to offer some insight into this popular procedure.
Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are cemented to existing teeth or implants that surround an empty space, serving as anchors for the bridge. Porcelain is the most common material choice because it can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
A crown covers a damaged tooth. They are used for various reasons such as strengthening a damaged tooth, improving the tooth’s appearance or shape and to fix alignment issues. As with bridges, crowns can be made of porcelain.
When would I need a crown?
- To attach a bridge
- Replace a filling when not enough tooth remains
- Protecting weak teeth
- Fractured tooth
- Cover a dental implant
- Cover a discolored tooth
- Cover a tooth that has had a root canal
Crowns and bridges are fairly easy to take care of. Practice good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing and seeing your dentist on a regular basis. Also, steer clear of chewing hard foods such as ice. Follow these simple rules and your crowns and bridges could last a lifetime!

Does the thought of having your teeth worked on make you anxious or uncomfortable? Do the sight of needles and the sound of dental drills make you cringe? Now imagine if you could have everything done while you nap comfortably and awake to not remembering anything from the procedure. By the use of intravenous sedation, we can do this for you. Dr. Giraldo of New Dimension Dentistry in New York has been helping people overcome these fears for many years.
IV sedation dentistry is when a drug, usually of the anti-anxiety variety, is administered into the blood system during dental treatment to produce a relaxed feeling. Recovery time is a little longer and you’ll need someone to drive you home after your dental treatment is completed. IV sedation dentistry can benefit a wide range of patients, including people with:
- High dental anxiety and fear.
- A severe gag reflex.
- Difficulty getting numb.
- Extensive treatment needs.
- A desire to have dentistry done comfortably while.they are fully relaxed.
Since sedation is not for everyone, we also offer Nitrous Oxide treatment. Nitrous Oxide is commonly referred to as “Laughing Gas.” This mild sedative inhalant will put you in a euphoric state of relaxation and will help make the dental procedures much easier for you to handle.
We understand that going to the dentist can be very difficult for some people. Dental phobia is actually a lot more common than you may think. It is estimated that about 15% of Americans avoid going to the dentist because of this reason.
