Tooth bonding: for white spots that are often difficult to treat, a cosmetic tooth bonding may be used to resurface the tooth and provide an even color tone.
Dental veneers: using high quality porcelain or minimal prep veneers, Dr. Levey can often provide a lasting smile makeover in as few as two visits to our Croton On Hudson dentist office.
Dental crowns: for a single stained tooth, a CEREC dental crown can be color matched to your remaining teeth for an aesthetic result that is complete in one visit.
