Dr. Jeffrey Galler, a family dentist in Brooklyn, NY, offers a range of cosmetic and general dentistry options for the entire family.

When is cosmetic dentistry used?
Cosmetic dentistry procedures are used to correct damage like chipped and cracked teeth, or for aesthetic improvements like whitening and bleaching stains, or closing moderate spaces and gaps between the teeth. In some cases, cosmetic procedures like veneers or bonding are used to improve the look as well as the function of a tooth or to strengthen and protect it from further damage if the tooth is cracked, or to seal it after treatment with root canal therapy.
But even if your teeth and gums are already healthy, cosmetic dentistry is still an option if there are features of your smile that you would like to improve for personal or even professional reasons.
