Cosmetic Dentistry Services

At Artistry in Dentistry, we are proud to offer the highest-quality cosmetic treatments, including services such as porcelain veneers and teeth whitening. Dr. Kubit is dedicated to working with you to address imperfections and achieve your smile goals through individualized care. Dr. Kubit is trained to perform a full range of cosmetic procedures:

Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are considered one of the most effective and versatile cosmetic procedures. By securing a thin shell of porcelain to your tooth, we can mask imperfections including stubborn stains, chips, cracks, and minor misalignment. Porcelain veneers can help you achieve a stunning smile in just two office visits.
Dental Bonding
Bonding is often recommended as an alternative to veneers. Patients who are interested in a more cost-effective option may choose bonding, or use it as a temporary way to preview what veneers can do for their appearance. Unlike porcelain, the bonding material is not resistant to staining.
Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a simple, affordable way to highlight your smile. Dr. Kubit prefers Opalescence® for its dramatic effects and offers both in-office and take-home options. Patients who choose to whiten their smile at home will typically use customized trays that are filled with gel.
Porcelain Crowns
Although dental crowns are often used for restorative reasons, such as to protect a cracked tooth, they can also improve the appearance of worn, small, or irregularly shaped teeth. Porcelain crowns blend with the surrounding teeth making them virtually indistinguishable.

Patients who have multiple aesthetic concerns can streamline their care by undergoing a smile makeover. This plan consists of two or more cosmetic treatments performed in strategically combined or staged visits, often cutting time and cost. 

Treatment Planning 

Practicing since 1985, Dr. Arlene Kubit has the skills, training, and attention to detail needed to provide the most natural-looking results.

Ensuring the longevity of your results starts even before you begin cosmetic treatment. Since underlying conditions such as decay, gum disease, and dental misalignment can compromise the effects of cosmetic procedures, we will begin by assessing your oral health. Preparatory treatment may include periodontal therapy, tooth-colored fillings, or treatment for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.

Dr. Kubit believes that creating realistic wax-ups is an integral part of the treatment planning process. Some patients, such as those receiving veneers, will be provided with these models in order preview their results. We can also make important adjustments based on the look and feel of your wax-up.

Maintaining Your Results

Once your cosmetic treatment is complete, a few simple steps can help retain your newly enhanced smile. Patients should continue attending their regularly scheduled appointments, and practice diligent oral hygiene at home. Although some materials, such as porcelain, are resistant to staining, it is generally recommended to minimize your consumption of coffee, red wine, tea, and other food and drinks which can darken enamel. 

Flexible Financing Options

At Artistry in Dentistry, we believe that every patient deserves to look and feel their best. Since cosmetic procedures are typically not covered by insurance, we accept financing through Erie Federal Credit Union. These payment plans can make out-of-pocket costs more manageable, allowing you to afford your ideal treatment plan.
