Porcelain veneers can help you achieve a stunning smile. These wafer-thin, custom-made shells are bonded to the front surfaces of individual teeth to conceal flaws and create a beautiful, yet natural-looking appearance. Dr. Scott Emalfarb offers minimal prep veneers that can be placed in two easy visits. The turn-around time for you custom veneers is about two weeks, and a wax-up is included so you can see what your results will look like before the final fabrications are secured to the teeth.
We offer in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatment. Our in-office treatment uses the new Zoom®-innovated LED light bulb that produces brighter light with less heat to reduce tooth sensitivity. We also apply a long-lasting numbing gel for a more comfortable experience. Patients who undergo the in-office Zoom® treatment receive a free custom-molded tray that you can use for touch-ups at home. With at-home treatment, you can whiten your teeth at your own pace.
Dental bonding is a simple, yet effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. A cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers, bonding can mask surface flaws like discoloration, cracks, and chips. The tooth-colored composite resin is applied to correct minor flaws, and buffed to blend in seamlessly with your smile.
If you have several cosmetic dental issues, such as discoloration, gaps, stains, misalignment, or misshapen teeth, Dr. Emalfarb can create a customized treatment plan to give you the flawless smile you have always wanted. With his many years of experience and eye for artistry, he will evaluate a number of factors, including your current oral health and aesthetic goals, to formulate your unique plan. By combining several cosmetic treatments such as dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening, you can successfully achieve the smile of your dreams.
We are an Invisalign® preferred provider, which means that Dr. Emalfarb has achieved a significant level of experience treating patients with this innovative approach to straightening teeth. An alternative to traditional orthodontics like metal braces, Invisalign® uses a series of clear aligners to gradually guide teeth into their proper position. The aligners can be removed whenever you like so you can eat all your favorite foods and brush and floss normally. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign® is comfortable, convenient, and virtually invisible.
A harmonious gum line is an important element of an attractive smile. If you have a “gummy” smile, Dr. Emalfarb can sculpt and balance your gum line with a soft tissue laser so that you show more teeth and less gum. If your gum line is uneven, he can sculpt it to create a pleasing frame for your smile. Laser gum contouring is sometimes completed at the same time as porcelain veneer placement, to achieve the best aesthetic results. Laser gum contouring is simple and nearly painless, and requires little healing time.
