“I absolutely loved my experience at Dental Arts of Rockland! All throughout my life, I was so unhappy with my smile. I wanted a change. I was recommended by a friend who had gotten work done and found the office staff to be sweet and down to earth. They genuinely cared about my predisposition to my smile. I met with Dr. Blechman and he was very honest about what he could do. I was impressed by how knowledgeable he is! I completely trusted him and now I’m happy to say I have an amazing new smile! I can’t stop smiling. The whole experience was professional, approachable, and deeply rewarding. Trust them with your journey!”

The Benefits of Showing off Your Smile

Of course, cosmetic dentistry gives you the beautiful appearance you always wanted. Of course, it can make you feel more confident. But did you know that the benefits of smiling go far beyond your appearance?

  • Smiling makes you look friendlier, more approachable, younger, smarter, and thinner
  • Smiling connects people and helps them feel a sense of unity with each other
  • Smiling makes you feel good by lowering stress hormones and releasing endorphins

  • Smiling instantly improves your mood and shifts you toward a more positive outlook

Porcelain Veneers

Next time you visit Manhattan, take a look at the smiles around you. So many people have the whitest, straightest, youngest-looking teeth! Guess what–– It’s probably porcelain veneers. Here’s some great news: Now you too can have an influencer smile with gorgeous porcelain veneers right here in Rockland.

Are you struggling with:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Broken teeth
  • Uneven tooth lines
  • Short teeth
  • Reversed smile profile
  • Front tooth decay
  • Intrinsic stains
  • Minor gaps or overlapped teeth?

Porcelain veneers can completely transform, the size, shape, and color of one tooth or a whole smile-full of teeth because they form an entirely new surface. Each veneer is custom created and designed for you at our world-class labs so it looks and feels as if nature made it. The procedure is straightforward and usually doesn’t require any anesthesia. We simply prep your teeth; take molds; apply your temporary, try-on veneers; and, once your veneers are back from the lab, bond them permanently in place. Your smile never looked so good!

Minimal-Prep Veneers

Full-Mouth Restoration

Life can be hard on your smile. Your morning coffee stains your teeth. The stress of the daily grind leaves you clenching on your commute home and in your sleep. You skipped a few cleanings and now you think you have a gum infection. And to top it all off, the tooth you had removed last year is making you look so much older than you need to. Your smile isn’t worth showing off anymore and it isn’t just affecting your confidence, it’s affecting your health as well. But who has time to go from one specialist to another to get it all fixed and looking good? You don’t have to!

That means you’ll feel better and look better for longer – with no runaround!

Whatever you need to get yourself back in the smile game, we’ve got it. Why not schedule a consultation today?

Crown Lengthening

Gums. Usually, they stay fairly hidden in your smile, quietly holding your teeth in place and protecting your body from pathogens. But sometimes, those unobtrusive tissues become inflamed, grow too much, look puffy, or just take over your smile and cover way too much of your beautiful enamel. Gum overgrowth can happen for all kinds of reasons such as a side effect of certain medications, illness, hormonal changes, braces, or systemic inflammation. Dental Arts of Rockland can help.

Our crown lengthening procedure is a quick and painless way to remove excess gum tissues. We can sculpt irregularities of the gumline, and even expose more enamel in order to restore a broken or worn-down teeth. We use soft tissue lasers to perform this procedure and because the laser heals as it works, our patients don’t have to worry about bleeding, stitches or prolonged downtimes. You’ll leave the office looking and feeling great and ready to share your smile with the world!

Composite Bonding

Oops! You were happily munching on a bowl of popcorn and a hidden kernel did a number on your tooth. Now you have a chip, right there in the front. You certainly don’t want to have to get a crown or a veneer and you have to travel for work next week. What can you do? Composite bonding is the go-to solution for almost any minor damage or cosmetic correction like cracks chips, gaps, recession areas, or stains. It is conservative, budget-friendly, and, most of all, fast.

Just schedule your appointment, and in one, easy and painless visit, your smile will be back to full function and ready to glow. But be aware – because composite bonding is performed directly to your tooth, only an experienced and artistic dentist will do the best job. Dr. Blechman has perfected countless smiles with composite bonding – with incredibly natural-looking results – so you can relax knowing that your restoration will be just what you hoped for. So go on, enjoy that popcorn. We’ve got your smile covered!

Tooth Recontouring

Perfection really is in the details – and tooth contouring proves it. Because tooth recontouring is such a simple and effective procedure, we often use it in combination with bonding, whitening, or crown lengthening. (In fact, it is the first step in preparing for porcelain veneers.) But even on its own, tooth contouring can make a dramatic difference in your smile by smoothing jagged edges, minimizing overlaps, reducing extra long teeth, erasing ridges and pits, and quickly polishing away small chips and cracks.

We use the same kind of delicate burr fine jewelers use, combined with Dr. Blechman’s steady hand and artistic eye, to perfect and refine your smile in one visit. The procedure is so safe and so painless, most of our patients don’t require any kind of anesthetic or anesthesia. And because it is performed in one visit, you can leave your appointment radiating new confidence with no waiting, no numbness, and no return visit – just a smooth and harmonious smile you can’t wait to reveal.

Smile Whitening

You can’t live without that first cup of coffee in the morning… your cigarette on the drive home… that glass of wine with dinner… but what’s happening to your teeth? The pearly whites you used to love to flash are suddenly looking more like dishrag greys – and that’s just not what you want for your smile! The thing is, everything you eat or drink, anything you smoke, every year that passes, leave their traces on your dental enamel. Sure, you could try some over-the-counter whitening method, but the results can be irregular and damaging to your gums. Why risk it and waste your money?

Ask the team at Dental Arts of Rockland about the ease, convenience, and power of our Opalescence tray whitening. Each tooth whitening kit is designed specifically for you, with molds taken of your teeth, for unsurpassed comfort and effectiveness. Just put a little of the highly-rated Opalescence gel in your tray, pop it in your mouth, and whiten whenever or wherever you like – while you commute to work, watching TV, or even in bed. Results are visible very quickly, but you can expect to achieve full brightening in about two weeks – up to ten dazzling shades whiter.
