Are You a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry? By Dr. Degel on October 08, 2010

Some people associate cosmetic dentistry with the full smile makeovers made popular on such television programs as Extreme Makeover, believing that a trip to a cosmetic dentist will yield only dramatic results. In the care of experienced cosmetic dentists such as Dr. Clifford Degel and Dr. Carmen Every-Degel, however, patients can achieve results as subtle or as comprehensive as they wish. To be a suitable candidate for cosmetic dentistry, you must start with a desire to improve the aesthetics of your smile. From there, Dr. Degel or Dr. Every-Degel can help you identify the treatment or treatments that are perfectly suited to you, customizing them to reflect your unique needs and goals.


In addition to wanting a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing smile, good candidates for cosmetic dentistry at our practice serving Manhattan and all of New York City include those:

  • With realistic expectations of the results possible with such treatments as porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and porcelain crowns
  • With the understanding that most dental insurance plans do not provide coverage for cosmetic dentistry procedures; however, financing options are available
  • Who are inquisitive and vocal during their initial consultation to ensure that their treatment plan is perfectly tailored to their needs
  • In good overall health to undergo certain cosmetic treatments, such as dental implants, which requires oral surgery

At Astoria Dental Group, we offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry treatments, which can be combined and individualized in countless ways to accommodate each patient’s goals. To schedule an appointment at our cosmetic dentistry practice serving Manhattan and all of New York City, during which we can give you a preview of how you would look following certain treatments through computer smile imaging, please contact Dr. Clifford Degel and Dr. Carmen Every-Degel today.
