Cosmetic Dentistry

Even the most beautiful smiles can appear unhealthy if the teeth are chipped, stained, or misaligned.

Cosmetic dentistry treatments such as whitening and porcelain veneers can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence.

Check out how dentist Joseph T. Mormino in Staten Island, NY, can enhance your smile with cosmetic dentistry...

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Unlike general dentistry, which focuses on preventative care, fillings, and other oral health problems, cosmetic dentistry addresses cosmetic issues that detract from your smile. That could include discoloration, chips, cracks, or other problems.

Experienced cosmetic dentists like Dr. Mormino on Staten Island focus on the overall appearance of your smile and have an expansive repertoire of skills that allow them to offer multiple options tailored to your unique needs. Dr. Mormino has been providing advanced dental care to Staten Island for more than 25 years using the latest in dental technology. He also has an on-site lab that allows him to ensure every detail in each restoration is just right.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Fix Imperfections

Cosmetic treatments from our Staten Island, NY, dentist can correct gaps, stains, crooked teeth, chips, and other damage to your teeth. 

Improve Oral Health 

Misaligned teeth are harder to clean than straight teeth, which can make bacteria buildup. Patients can experience bad breath, gum disease, and infection if too much bacteria is collected between teeth. Improved alignment enhances aesthetics and health.

Boost in Self-Esteem

Your smile is one of the main things people notice while making a first impression. Our cosmetic dentistry treatments can improve the appearance of our smile, which can make you more comfortable in social situations and new professional opportunities.

​Dislike Your Smile? You're Not Alone

A recent study found that 42% of people said that their teeth are the number one thing they would change about themselves
According to a survey by Bupa

The same survey found that 8 in 10 people are dissatisfied with their smile and how it looks in photos. A cosmetic dentistry treatment from our Staten Island, NY, office can address your imperfections and transform your smile.

The dentist was always a traumatizing experience for me. That is, until I met Dr. Mormino. He is the most gifted dentist I have ever had the pleasure to meet both in general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. He actually changed my sisters life, giving her a smile she never had! He is patient and kind and explains EVERYTHING. The office is spotless, the staff superb.. a shout out to Stephanie, who helped me so much.. Annie (very talented and professional assistant <3) Annemarie, Mary and the hygenist Gladys. I could go on and on, but i will never go to another dentist.. He is the absolute best, and on top of that, is board-certified in the treatment of Sleep Apnea! One in a million. Dori

After being a patient of Dr. Mormino's for about a year now, I can say that going to the dentist is by all means a pleasant and enjoyable experience. I originally came to Dr. Mormino on an emergency basis because I chipped a tooth. Although I was in for an emergency, Dr. Mormino was happy to speak to me about other concerns I had. He presented me with a few different options to address some problems I had been having. In order to achieve the smile that I always wanted, I had a combination of cosmetic and restorative work done. I have never been more confident in my smile and even though my treatment is complete now I have returned to the office for a cleaning to keep up with it and will continue to do so. Coming to see Dr. Mormino was one of the best decisions I made since moving to Staten Island and I am very happy with the level and quality of care I have received as well as the general kindness of his office staff and their willingness to work with my hectic schedule.

Enhance Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers

Our Staten Island, NY, dental practice uses an on-site lab to craft custom veneers to cover stained, chipped, or worn teeth, giving you a beautiful and natural-looking smile.

There are several dental procedures available at our Staten Island practice to enhance your smile and boost your confidence...

Treatments in Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a minimally invasive treatment that is often chosen as an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers. Your dentist applies a tooth-colored composite resin material and expertly shapes it to conceal imperfections. The material is then polished and cured to blend in with your smile.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin shells that are placed on the front surface of teeth to conceal a range of cosmetic imperfections, including chips, cracks, and stains. Your veneers will be custom-designed and crafted from dental-grade porcelain in our on-site dental lab to blend seamlessly with your smile.

Teeth Whitening

Our Staten Island dentist offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments. Those who want immediate results can achieve a brighter smile in just one hour with our in-office Zoom!® procedure. Patients who want to whiten their teeth at their convenience can use custom trays at home to achieve a dazzling smile in two to three weeks.

Dental Implants

Missing teeth can seriously impact your ability to chew and speak properly. Dental implants restore missing tooth roots and can be restored with crowns, bridges, and dentures. Dr. Mormino works alongside a team of specialists to provide our Staten Island patients with the highest level of dental care possible. Whether you need to replace one tooth or several teeth, implants can help.

Smiles Tomorrow

Your dentist can even provide a fixed full-arch denture supported by five to six implants in as little as 24 hours with Smiles Tomorrow. This advanced method uses the latest techniques, looks completely natural, and provides a fast solution.

Same-Day Crowns

Traditional tooth crowns often take over two weeks to fabricate. Your Staten Island dentist utilizes state-of-the-art technology to make custom dental crowns in our office while you wait. That means you can come in for a procedure such as a root canal and leave with a beautiful, fully restored smile. Each restoration is crafted with medical-grade ceramic and created to blend in with your natural teeth for a truly lifelike appearance.

Creating Dazzling Smiles

If you want the very best results for your cosmetic dental work, Dr. Joseph Mormino is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry who can realize your goals. From placing veneers to replacing old fillings with tooth-colored fillings, Dr. Mormino can provide both simple and complex upgrades. He performs extensive diagnoses to determine the solution that will best meet your needs and goals.

What if I Need Tooth Extractions, Fillings, or Dentures?

Extractions, fillings, and dentures fall into the category of restorative dentistry, another area where Dr. Mormino is highly trained and has the advanced technology to handle even challenging cases.

In many cases, cosmetic problems also fall into the category of restorative dentistry.

These situations can include severe decay and damage due to dental trauma. Many times these dental issues also impact oral function and can hinder your ability to eat and speak clearly. If left untreated, they can lead to more serious problems, such as jawbone atrophy and tooth loss.

If you are missing teeth and need dentures or dental implants or if you need full mouth reconstruction, Dr. Mormino has the advanced technology to address your needs. Our knowledgeable team can also help you determine what procedures can be covered by your dental insurance. While cosmetic procedures typically are not covered, restorative dentistry is usually covered at least in part by insurers.

I went to Dr. Mormino the first time to take care of my 95 year old Mom who was having some dental issues. I am the biggest baby when it comes to dentists but when I saw how kind and gentle he was with my Mom I booked a consultation. To say that he changed my life would be an understatement. I never smiled because I was so self conscious and was in pain regularly. I now have my smile back and would recommend Dr. Mormino and his fabulous staff to anyone who is looking for a gentle, caring, and professional dentist.

Before going to Dr. Mormino, I had always feared going to the dentist. My anxiety would kick in the day before any appointment. Since meeting Dr. Mormino and his staff, I no longer have fear going to the dentist. I appreciate the way he and his staff treat their patients. They always make sure you’re comfortable and not in pain. They take anxiety and fear about having a procedure done seriously and always treat their patients with the utmost respect. Thank you Dr. Mormino and staff!!

Why Choose Dr. Mormino?

Cosmetic dental enhancements are more popular and widely available than ever before. You may find yourself wondering: With so many providers out there, why shouldn't I just find the cheapest price and go for it?

Although too-good-to-be-true pricing can be very tempting, the truth is that not all cosmetic dentists are created equal. Dr. Mormino in Staten Island has been providing enhancements to satisfied patients for more than 25 years. And although many practices work with offsite labs to create veneers, crowns, and other restorations, Dr. Mormino has his own onsite lab where these upgrades can be carefully crafted to your specifications.

If you experience dental anxiety or have physical limitations that make sitting for long periods difficult, our practice offers nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation to ensure maximum comfort throughout your treatment. People undergoing either simple or complex procedures can benefit from sedation dentistry.

Dr. Mormino and his staff pride themselves on creating a warm and welcoming environment for his patients. At our Staten Island practice, we have free WiFi, warm neck pillows, and TV and music in every room. We also provide gourmet coffee, teas, hot chocolate, and spring water.

I've always been extremely terrified of the dentist, until I met Dr. Mormino. He is very patient, kind, caring and understanding. He made me feel so comfortable from my first visit. Stephanie, his receptionist is absolutely amazing, since I called to make an appointment, scheduling with her she put my mind at ease. The office is clean and sanitized. Everyone is extremely nice and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Mormino and his staff.
