In the past decade there has been a dramatic interest in cosmetic dentistry in NYC and all over the world. We all realize that having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence. Your smile speaks before you even say a word!
Thanks to the advances in dentistry, we’re able to improve our teeth and smiles with quick, painless and surprisingly affordable cosmetic dentistry. In NYC, SmileArts has a reputation as one of the very best dentist offices available, and our many happy customers prove time and time again that our reputation is well-deserved.
Teeth whitening is one of our most commonly requested services. Our highly experienced dentists are renowned as the best and they have performed many thousands of whitening procedures.
When you come for your appointment we make sure we provide you all the information you’ll need, both for before and after care. The first thing you should know is that the special whitening gel we use can’t cut through calculus or plaque, so we do recommend a thorough professional cleaning before your treatment appointment.
Most people have questions about how the process works and we think it’s important for you to understand what’s going to happen every step of the way. Whitening works to get rid of discoloration and stubborn stains by removing them from inside with a special gel comprising 35% hydrogen peroxide, which is activated by a special LED light. It’s a completely safe procedure that usually takes three 15-minute sessions, and there is absolutely nothing to be apprehensive about. You may experience some increased sensitivity for a few days afterwards, but the process does absolutely no harm to your teeth.
The aim of whitening is to get your teeth back to their natural color, which will be different for everyone. There’s no way to predict the results, but we’ve found (from patient studies) that the average result is around 7.3 shades lighter, with some patients experiencing as much as 15 shaded lighter and a small number of others as little 2-3 shades lighter.
If you’re considering this kind of cosmetic dentistry in NYC, rest assured at SmileArts our treatments are safe, effective and offer instantaneous results.
Here at SmileArts we use Invisalign, a hi-tech system of straightening teeth utilising cutting edge products, manufacturing and techniques to provide an effective solution to a range of dental conditions. These include overcrowding, bite issues and spacing problems.
As one of the leading offices providing cosmetic dentistry in NYC, we understand the Invisalign system has revolutionized orthodontics. Our trained dentists know the system inside out in order to be able to offer our clients the best possible service and results.
Rather than like the old system of having wires attached, Invisalign is clear, removable and invisible – allowing you to straighten your teeth in complete privacy. This tried and tested process has been thoroughly proven in both clinical research and orthodontic practice.
Invisalign works by using clear ‘aligners’, which you can remove to eat, drink and to carry out your dental care – brushing and flossing. The process takes an average of 12 months, with aligners replaced every two weeks with the next in the series to bring the teeth into the desired position, little by little. You’ll also have regular prescribed visits to our office around once every six weeks to ensure everything is going well and there are no problems with the aligners or the way the treatment is progressing.
For anyone who wants to improve their smile by correcting things like spaces, gaps, chipped, pitted, broken or uneven teeth, discoloration or to correct the appearance of teeth that are too big or too small, porcelain veneers are a highly effective solution. Thin shells of ceramic veneer are bonded to your own teeth in a simple process that offers some of the best results in cosmetic dentistry. In NYC, we are your go-to office for porcelain veneers and in many cases the process can be an excellent alternative to crowns.
Getting your porcelain veneers with SmileArts will require several visits. In the first consultation we’ll decide whether this is the right process for you and, if so, determine how many veneers will be needed. The next session involves the removal of a small amount of enamel in order to make room for the veneers, then an impression will be taken so the veneers can be made, and temporary veneers will be applied. On the final visit your permanent veneers will be ready and, following a thorough check, they will be bonded to your teeth.
Veneers can create a dramatic change in the appearance of your smile and are very easy to maintain (just the same as your natural teeth), which makes them a popular choice with many of our clients looking for outstanding results.
Sometimes an ordinary filling is not enough to repair a tooth if it is extensively damaged or missing part of its structure. That’s when a stronger material is required to replace the missing parts of a tooth. Depending on the individual situation, custom inlays, onlays and crowns can be used to repair damage due to trauma, cavities, root canal or fracture and will help extend the life of a tooth.
Onlays, inlays and crowns are crafted from porcelain zirconia, a material known for its strength and durability. The hi-tech material allows them to look just like your real teeth and it is much stronger than the old type of crowns.
At SmileArts our highly trained dentists will take you through the process of inlays, onlays and crowns gently and efficiently. You can feel confident you’re in the best possible hands for all your cosmetic dentistry in NYC.

“I went this past Monday for a teeth whitening treatment. Overall, it was an amazing experience. There was little to no wait time and the process was smooth. Everything was explained to me and I had no sensitivity afterwards. I would 10/10 recommend this office. The staff is polite and the office was very clean!” Tanaya
“From meeting the receptionist to finishing up with the dentist, my experience was nice and pleasant. The second the dentist removed my Invisalign, I knew I was in good hands (trust me, sometimes even my orthodontist removes my Invisalign haphazardly). The hygienist was very kind, talked me through the process, and asked me plenty of questions to understand my areas of concern. My teeth feel especially clean now. Fortunately, I had no major issues that needed my dentist’s involvement (i.e. cavities, etc.). However, he examined me and answered all my questions regarding recent pain I had due to prior work by another dentist.” Aishwarya
“Dr Mann is a perfectionist. The staff is friendly, professional, and on the ball. The crowns are the best I’ve experienced and I have a few haha!” Andy
“From scheduling to the consultation and allowing me to make a decision and proceed it was accommodating. Great experience overall. Looking forward to a good long-standing attention. Thank you kindly.” Emma
“Dr. Tong has a wonderful bedside manner and does consistently amazing work. I’m very happy I waited for her to get back from maternity leave to have my crown done because she has done such a beautiful, meticulous job in the past for me, and this visit was no exception!” Hudson
“Truly always beyond impressed by this place. Everyone is FRIENDLY in addition to being incredibly professional, timely, and the absolute highest standard in general. Won’t be going anywhere else.” Kate
