Dazzling Dentistry: By A Dentist In Long Island City

Updated: Jul 17

Our LIC dentist, Dr Linh Nguyen can help you craft the most dazzling smile, which not only improves your smile but also the quality of your life as well.


Dazzling Smile

In addition to your eyes, your smile will be one of the first things that other people will notice about you. Far too many individuals are afraid to smile wide and proud when they have insecurities about their teeth. That can all change because our LIC dental office's goal is to revitalize your dazzling smile with our cosmetic dentistry procedures. Our long island city dental office offers teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.



Teeth whitening in Long Island City

Nothing will naturally rejuvenate your smile quite like teeth whitening can because it is a non-invasive procedure. You don't have to drill away any enamel nor do you have to physically alter the structure of your teeth. All you have to do is just whiten them by removing the extrinsic and intrinsic stains on your teeth.


You can do this procedure with a variety of professional products that are available on the market but our office exclusively uses KoR Whitening. KoR is the most effective whitening product on the market currently because it uses the freshest ingredients.


According to their research, whitening gels start to degrade and lose efficacy if the product is left out in the sun or even at room temperature. This is why all of their bleaching gels are stored in the refrigerator. In fact, their whitening material comes shipped to us in an ice box!


KoR Whitening

With the whitening gel arriving in an ice box, it ensures that the potency is maintained. Are you wondering why your local pharmacies just leave their products sitting on the room temperature shelves?


So what are you waiting for? You should book an appointment because here are some examples of what KoR can do. They are absolutely dazzling if I do say so myself!

Porcelain veneers in Long Island City

As stunning as what KoR whitening can do, sometimes you need a little extra dazzle to your smile and that is porcelain veneers. The benefits of porcelain veneers is that they do not require whitening maintenance. The color will not change and will always be the same color the day that you put them in! Teeth whitening unfortunately requires a small touch up every month or so.


Porcelain Veneers

The biggest downside to veneers is that they are a more invasive procedure because it requires drilling away some of your enamel. The reason why this needs to happen is because you need to create space to put the porcelain on. If you just insert the porcelain veneers without any drilling, the teeth will look extra bulky. We don't want bulky teeth!



Take away

Both cosmetic dentistry options are wonderful in our opinion and if you have any questions, you should book a consultation appointment with your cosmetic dentist. Our long island city dentist, Dr David Chen, recommends that you start with the teeth whitening first to see if you are satisfied with the results before proceeding to the veneers. This is because we recommend that you start more conservatively since that is a part of our philosophy regarding dental treatment. Nonetheless, your dazzling smile is just a phone call away!

About the author: Dr David Chen, DDS

Hello, I'm Dr Chen and I'm an actively practicing dentist in Long Island City, NY. I graduated from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine in 2016 but prior to going to dental school I was already working in the dental field. It's been more than a decade since I first got to know dentistry and let me tell you, time flies by quickly. Since then I've developed a fondness for writing, which is how this all got started!
