Cosmetic Dentistry ProceduresHow your cosmetic dentist in Forest Hills, New York can remake your smile.

If your smile isn’t as beautiful as it could be, you can remake it! You can change a dull, uninteresting smile into a work of art. All it takes is the right cosmetic dental procedure and a highly-skilled cosmetic dentist! Dr. Richard H. Lestz in Forest Hills, New York is the cosmetic dentist who can make it happen.

You may be wondering which cosmetic dental procedure is right for you. Consider these cosmetic dental services to make your smile uniquely beautiful, and uniquely yours:

Professional teeth whitening, to remove dark stains, discolorations, and take back the yellow tinge that aging gives your smile; professional teeth whitening delivers dramatic results, up to 8 shades whiter! The results also last far longer than with over-the-counter products, even up to 5 years! Dr. Lestz offers in-office whitening, which takes about an hour and is the quickest method, or a take-home whitening kit which is the most convenient method.

Cosmetic bonding, to repair cracks, fracture lines, tooth wear and other damage, giving you a more harmonious smile; bonding uses composite, a liquid resin that can be matched to the color and shape of your teeth. After placement, the composite is hardened with a dental blue light.

Tooth-colored fillings, to repair areas of tooth decay with a completely metal-free solution; tooth-colored fillings also use composite, so your dental fillings will be virtually invisible in your smile!

Porcelain veneers, to hide large issues like breaks, chips, tooth wear, enamel defects, and other unsightly aesthetic issues; porcelain veneers are thin laminates of exquisite, light-reflecting porcelain which mimics the look of tooth enamel. In some cases, porcelain veneers can even be used to close up small gaps between teeth and to eliminate the appearance of tooth overlap.

These are just a few of the many cosmetic dental procedures for you to choose from. For a complete list of cosmetic dental procedures available, please visit the Services section on the website at

Don’t settle for an ordinary smile when you can have an extraordinary smile! To get started on your new dazzling smile, call Dr. Richard H. Lestz in Forest Hills, New York today!

Millions of Americans are quietly unhappy with the way their teeth look. No matter how long you’ve been living with dental imperfections, veneersveneers can help improve your teeth and make your smile look like you’ve never seen it before. Creating a brand new smile with veneers is an art—it involves shaping, contouring, and coloring it to perfection. See Dr. Richard Lestz, a cosmetic dentist practicing in Forest Hills, NY, for a veneer consultation.

Veneers: A Popular Cosmetic Solution
Veneers are a solution for patients who are tired of seeing dull, discolored, worn out teeth when they look in the mirror. Many of the people you see with near-perfect smiles weren’t born with them—they actually have veneers covering their original teeth. Veneers were originally used by Hollywood stars, as early as the 1920s. They’re now popular with patients from all walks of life, including socialites, business professionals, and people who are planning major events.

Benefits of Choosing Veneers
Your Forest Hills cosmetic dentist may offer you more than one option for fixing up your smile, but here are some reasons why you might want to opt for veneers:

- There’s a short wait time for veneers—your teeth will look better after just a few weeks.
- Today’s veneers are made of porcelain, which is extremely resilient, durable, and attractive. Expect them to last 10 years or more.
- Your dentist has the ability to make veneers look extremely natural so that others won’t realize that you have coverings over your teeth.

A Smile Improvement and More...
Your smile can look 10 times better after a veneer treatment. It can also improve other facets of your life. A smile survey published by Kelton Research found that most Americans associate a beautiful smile with youth, health, success, and even trustworthiness. Veneers are an investment in your present and your future.
