New Patients are Always Welcome

It can seem a little unnerving to try to find a new dentist; especially one whom you can trust for important services like cosmetic dentistry. When you choose the Center for Cosmetic Dentistry in Smithtown, NY, near Long Island, NY, you’re choosing our dental team that has transformed thousands of smiles over the course of more than 30 years.

What to Expect

Our first visit usually consists of a free consultation with Dr.Shapiro which helps you decide if our practice is right for you. Insurance information can be reviewed at that time and the details of the exam appointment will be discussed. You can make even arrangements with us to get any records needed from your previous dentist We try to keep surprises to a minimum so honest communication is very important to us. 

During your next visit we will do a dental examination and discuss the health of your smile, the concerns you may have, and whether or not any type of therapy is needed. We will either get the most recent x-rays from your previous dentist or we will take a series of low radiation digital x-rays to assess your smile’s health even further. As part of the exam we often scan your mouth with the iTero Element 5D scanner. This digital scanner allows you to see what we see and even look into the teeth to find decay. 

The goal of the first visit is to establish a plan to get you the healthy smile you always wanted. if you already have it then we look to just maintain it. We want your teeth to look great, feel great and last a lifetime. the plan may take one visit or many years  to accomplish. It is something that needs to be done because the alternative should not be acceptable. 

We look forward to putting that smile on your face for many years to come
