A close-up picture of a big, beautiful smileYour smile can bring joy and happiness to you and those around you. But, if you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, then it’s time to discover the incredible benefits of cosmetic dentistry. Our Staten Island, NY, dentists provide life-changing aesthetic dental treatments that dramatically boost your self-esteem and appearance.

Patients who visit Staten Island Aesthetic & Implant Dentist have several cosmetic treatments from which to choose. Here, our team will explore cosmetic dentistry costs and benefits so that you can see why these treatments are worth every penny.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is arguably one of the easiest ways to get a striking smile quickly. Patients can choose from a variety of whitening systems, including take-home whitening kits. Regardless of which system you choose, our team customizes whitening treatments to your unique specifications.

Cost: According to nationwide averages, professional teeth-whitening treatments can range from $300 to $1,000 depending on your unique needs and the extent of work required.

Benefits: In-office treatments can drastically brighten your smile in a single visit, while convenient take-home kits accomplish similar results over 10-14 days.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells that our dentists use to cover minor smile imperfections like:

  • Stains and discoloration
  • Chips and cracks
  • Gaps

Cost: Based on national averages, porcelain veneers cost between $925 and $2,500 per tooth.

Benefits: Dental veneers are a long-lasting solution to improve the appearance of your smile for years to come.


Invisalign® clear aligners are a discreet way to move crooked teeth into proper alignment. Most patients with mild to moderate misalignments can improve their smiles in as few as 6-18 months with Invisalign.

Cost: Data suggests that the average cost of Invisalign in America is between $3,000 and $7,000.

Benefits: Patients can straighten their teeth quickly, which makes oral hygiene easier and improves their oral health.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a procedure in which our Staten Island dentists use tooth-colored resin composite material to fix minor irregularities, like:

  • Gaps
  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Discoloration

Cost: Without insurance, patients can expect to pay between $90 and $1,000 per bonded tooth. Depending on the nature of the treatment, dental bonding can be a cost-effective alternative for patients who can’t afford porcelain veneers.

Benefits: The primary benefit of dental bonding is that it is a very low-risk procedure. This means that, unlike dental veneers, our team doesn’t have to remove any tooth enamel to enhance your smile.

Dental Implants

Patients with missing teeth can restore and enhance their smiles with dental implants. These sturdy titanium posts act like a natural tooth root, which encourages healthy gums, bone tissue, and nerves.

Cost: Patients can expect to pay between $3,000 and $4,500 per dental implant without insurance.

Benefits: Dental implants restore your natural chewing and speaking ability while amplifying your overall appearance. Additionally, dental implants prevent costly dental issues from developing in the future, like jawbone recession and further tooth loss.
