Cosmetic Services


A smile… “It costs nothing but creates much. It enriches those who receive it without impoverishing those who give. It happens in a flash and the memory of it lasts forever. None are so rich that they can get along without it. And none are so poor but are richer for a smile. Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen, for it is something that is no earthly good to anyone until it is given away.

Make your smile a masterpiece…

Dr. Goodkin, & Associates use the latest techniques to create and maintain beautiful and healthy smiles. We are pleased to offer our patients the following cosmetic services in a friendly and comfortable environment.

Lumineers®

Lumineers® by Cerinate® is a terrific cosmetic solution for permanently stained, chipped, discolored, or misaligned teeth. Lumineers® by Cerinate® is a porcelain veneer that can be made as thin as a contact lens and is placed over existing teeth without requiring removal of painful tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers).

Howard Goodkin & Associates is Lumineer certified. Think of this treatment as a manicure for your smile. We can change the shape, color and length of your teeth in only two visits. LUMINEERS is the painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth.

Invisalign®

You don't have to wear metal braces to get a straighter smile. Howard Goodkin & Associates is Invisalign® certified,. We offer clear, removable orthodontic aligners for adult patients. With Invisalign®, you can have a stunning smile without impairing your sophisticated image. Remove your clear aligner whenever you want – for special events, when eating a meal, or to brush your teeth.

Howard Goodkin & Associates uses 3D technology to design custom treatment plans, then the Invisalign® lab will create a set of acrylic aligners just for you. Wear each aligner for about two weeks, then move to the next in your series. Total treatment takes about a year in most cases. You won't have to worry with bands, wires, or adjustment visits. Simply see Howard Goodkin & Associates about every six weeks so that we can assess your progress.

Whitening

Whitening is one of the simplest and least expensive techniques and it can give you a brilliant smile you’ll be proud of. Our custom made whitening kits to use at home are comfortable, easy to use, and deliver a great result. For those who want a faster start, we offer Zoom whitening, the in- office process that whitens your teeth in about an hour. For teeth with dark stubborn stains we offer Deep Bleaching which is a combination of both in-office and at-home techniques.

Veneers

Porcelain veneers offer a more conservative approach than all porcelain crowns in restoring your smile. If your teeth are chipped, broken, or discolored, porcelain veneers are a great way to change the color and shape of your teeth. A porcelain veneer is a covering over the tooth that gives natural color and bridges small gaps. Veneers can be a great alternative to braces for slight orthodontic problems and provide a beautiful smile in a short amount of time. The results are simply gorgeous!

Bonding

Dental bonding can produce amazing improvements by fixing chips in your teeth. Bonding is covering the front surface of teeth with durable plastic to either change the tooth's color or shape, or to rebuild broken teeth. Bonding is similar to veneers, but not as strong, but it is a cost efficient way to improve your smile. Bonding is great for children who have chipped front teeth and for adults who need an alternative for veneers and understand the limitations.

Metal Free Crowns

Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. The new metal-free crowns eliminate the unpleasant black line you may have seen next to the gumline on older crowns.

Implants Restoration

Implants are an increasingly popular alternative to dentures and bridges. They have many advantages, including their natural appearance, improved comfort and unequaled convenience. If you are considering implants, we can discuss the considerations and help you make the decision that is right for you.

Custom Dentures

Even if you have lost your teeth we can help you get the smile you want with our beautiful custom designed dentures. Dental manufacturers are now making denture teeth in modern white shades. While we wish no one would ever need dentures, sometimes they are the most reasonable option. In the past wearing dentures was the only form of dentistry available to improve a person’s smile. When they are indicated we take the time necessary to create attractive, well fitting dentures. They can’t beat a set of your own teeth when they are healthy and straight, but when natural teeth can’t be restored dentures look great and chew well.

If a person has lost too much of their jawbone to steady their dentures, implants can be placed. The dentures are attached to the implants to hold them firmly in place. If you have this problem, call us for a consultation appointment.

Tooth Colored Fillings

Inlays and Onlays are tooth-colored restorations that are used in place of silver fillings on the chewing surfaces of back teeth. This approach has become very popular and is much more aesthetically pleasing than silver fillings.
