Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry, or smile enhancement, uses dental restorations and other aesthetic treatments, like teeth whitening, to improve the appearance of your teeth or smile. 

What are examples of cosmetic dentistry?

At Prestige 5th Avenue Dental, Dr. Simkha offers several types of cosmetic dentistry, including:

Dental inlays and onlays

Inlays and onlays restore a small amount of your tooth enamel lost to damage or decay.

An inlay repairs damage to the top of a tooth. It’s similar to a dental filling but made of porcelain or ceramic instead of composite resin. 

An onlay also repairs damage to the top of a tooth. The difference is that an onlay covers the cusps (or chewing surfaces). Dr. Simkha uses onlays to repair damaged or decaying molars (the teeth at the back of the mouth).

Metal-free dental crowns

Metal-free crowns are made of porcelain or ceramic. They restore a severely damaged or decaying tooth to its original size, shape, and appearance. Metal-free crowns envelop your entire tooth and have the same color and light-reflecting properties as natural tooth enamel.


Veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded to teeth at the front of your mouth. They cover minor cosmetic imperfections, like chips, cracks, or gaps between your teeth.

Teeth whitening

Dr. Simkha offers in-office teeth whitening with Philips Zoom, which can make your smile up to eight shades brighter* in under 45 minutes. The results last for months and look completely natural. 


Invisalign uses removable oral appliances to fix alignment problems like crooked or crowded teeth. It’s a quicker and more affordable alternative to traditional metal braces. Dr. Simkha prescribes Invisalign treatment to teens and adults. 

Dental implants 

Dental implants replace your natural tooth roots. They’re titanium posts that provide a base for dental restorations, like crowns, bridges, or implant-retained dentures.

At Prestige 5th Avenue Dental, Dr. Simkha specializes in placing All-on-4® and All-on-6® dental implants.
