Meet Our Cosmetic Dentists

Dr. Clifford Degel

Dr. Clifford Degel

Considered a top dentist in Queens, Long Island, and all of NYC, Dr. Clifford Degel has helped patients maintain, restore, and revitalize their smiles for over 25 years. Originally from Flushing, Dr. Degel received his bachelor of science degree from St. John's University. He attended Georgetown University Dental School, where he met his wife, Dr. Carmen Every-Degel.

Dr. Degel maintains active memberships in several professional associations including the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Dr. Carmen Every-Degel

Dr. Carmen Every-Degel

A renowned dentist and a vital member of the team at Astoria Dental Group, Dr. Carmen Every-Degel specializes in advanced cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Every-Degel grew up in Aruba. She lost a permanent tooth when she was young, and the gap in her smile coupled with noticeably crooked teeth left her feeling self-conscious about her appearance. Her mother's decision to repair her daughter's smile with cosmetic dentistry treatment allowed Dr. Every-Degel to experience firsthand the boost of confidence achieved with targeted cosmetic treatment. Since taking over the Astoria Dental Group with her husband in 1990, Dr. Every-Degel has provided patients with consistently beautiful results.

Like her husband, Dr. Every-Degel is a member of a number of professional organizations including the American Association of Women Dentists, Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Dental Association.

I've visited both Dr. Every-Degel and Dr. Degel and have had great experiences with both, with extensive work being done- extraction, implants, bridge, veneers, Invisalign, crowns, root canals and the basic cavities. The assistants are very helpful, staff is competent and friendly, the dental hygienist does a great job and I've never had to wait.

Cosmetic dentistry is an investment in your confidence and your quality of life. Those who come to us expect the best, and we work to stay at the cutting edge of dental care. These are some of the ways we separate ourselves from the pack when it comes to life-changing treatments and procedures. 
Intraoral Camera

Sedated patient


We ensure all our patients are relaxed and comfortable throughout their time with us. In addition to our characteristically compassionate care, we can provide sedation when necessary. We offer oral conscious sedation, and also work with a board-certified anesthesiologist who can provide deeper relaxation via IV sedation. We will do whatever it takes to keep you relaxed and comfortable. Our sedation allows you to remain verbal and alert during a procedure while eliminating the anxiety some patients feel when undergoing dental work.

I have been a patient at Astoria Dental for over 15 years, along with my son. We love the doctors and the staff, many of whom have worked there for just as long. It's not one of those big, fancy doctor's offices, but you'll find it's clean, welcoming, and keeps current with modern technology. They accept most insurance plans and will help you arrange financing if you need help with copays. Astoria Dental is the Best!

I adore Astoria Dental Group. Dr. Degel is absolutely wonderful: consummately professional, careful, gentle, precise, thorough, concerned and expert. Both my husband and I are patients and couldn't be happier. I moved to the practice shortly after it opened, so my care has been first-rate for some time. My husband came in subsequently, and family and friends began noticing that his teeth looked better than ever.

Featured Procedures



If the thought of wearing bulky metal braces has led you to put off straightening your smile, Invisalign offers a discreet alternative that offers a number of benefits to patients who qualify. Using a series of customized, clear aligner trays, the Invisalign system is far more comfortable than the brackets and wires of metal braces. Since the trays are removable, you can maintain your normal oral hygiene routine. You can also enjoy all of your favorite foods with no restrictions.

Invisalign can offer life-changing results, but it does have limited candidacy. You must be committed to wearing the aligners at least 20 to 22 hours a day, and Invisalign cannot correct severe misalignment issues. Dr. Every-Degel is recognized as a top Invisalign provider and can determine if the orthodontic treatment is a good option during your next visit to our dentistry office.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Coffee, tea, tobacco, and a number of other factors can have an effect on the luster of your smile. Staining and discoloration can be embarrassing, and difficult to treat with over-the-counter options. Professional whitening can remove the toughest stains and dramatically brighten your smile in just one treatment. While developing your cosmetic treatment plan, our dentists will examine your smile and recommend the teeth whitening treatment that is best for you.

Astoria Dental Group offers both Zoom!® and BriteSmile® whitening treatments to safely, quickly, and effectively achieve stunning results. The Zoom! whitening process can be done during your lunch hour and can brighten teeth an average of eight shades. BriteSmile whitening uses a proprietary hydrogen peroxide gel that is activated by a blue spectrum light and can brighten your teeth up to 14 shades in just one hour.

I worked with Cindy who is knowledgeable, thorough and walks me through the entire process with attention to all my questions. Always walk out of a visit on a good note. Highly recommend it.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneer

Chipped, worn, slightly crooked, and permanently stained teeth can impact not just your smile but your self-confidence. Made from medical-grade porcelain, veneers create brilliant smiles with quality and durability you can feel. Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile and can conceal a number of imperfections. Today's cutting-edge ceramics are indistinguishable from natural teeth, allowing veneers to give you a brighter, more balanced smile. 

Astoria Dental Group in Queens also offers LUMINEERS®, a type of minimal-prep veneer. These ultra-thin veneers are a good option for patients with sensitive teeth or who would like a reversible treatment. The size of your teeth will determine the amount of preparation you will need to receive LUMINEERS. Our dentists can review your options to see which type of veneer meets your needs.

Dental Implants

Dental Implant

missing tooth or teeth can be embarrassing and uncomfortable, but it can also have a long-term effect on your health. The jawbone is stimulated by the roots of a tooth, and when a tooth is lost, the lack of stimulation causes the bone tissue in the jaw to begin to deteriorate. As this atrophy continues, it causes the surrounding teeth to shift. If left untreated, bone loss in your jaw can lead to further dental issues such as misalignment and additional tooth loss. It can also cause your face to appear sunken and aged beyond your years.

The titanium posts of dental implants act as a substitute for the roots of a missing tooth. Dental implants stimulate the bone tissue in your jaw just like the roots of a tooth and are the only treatment in modern dentistry that can stop the bone loss associated with a missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants provide a stable foundation for restorations such as a crownbridge, or denture so you can enjoy the benefits of a complete smile once again. 

Doctors Carmen Every-Degel and Clifford Degel

  • Academy of General Dentistry 
  • American Academy of Implant Dentistry
