Welcome to the spring season, where everything feels fresh, vibrant, and new. What better time to give your smile a refreshing makeover? At Locust Valley Dentists, our dedicated and skilled dentist, Dr. Adrianne Koster, provides various cosmetic dentistry services designed to rejuvenate and enhance your smile, giving you that confidence boost you deserve.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a special branch of dentistry that puts an emphasis on improving the appearance of your smile rather than just improving your oral health. With that being said, cosmetic dentistry still has a big influence on your overall health and confidence, leading to improved oral hygiene. For example, the use of crowns or veneers can help cover teeth with weakened enamel, leading to a stronger and healthier oral environment with minimized areas for bacteria to collect.

Cosmetic Dentistry at Locust Valley Dentists

Locust Valley Dentists, located in Locust Valley, NY, offers cosmetic dentistry to patients in Locust Valley and surrounding areas, including the following treatments:

Gum Contouring

Do you feel your smile is more gum than teeth, often termed a “gummy smile”? Dr. Koster can correct this with a quick, safe, and effective technique known as gum contouring. A dental laser is used to trim the excess gum tissue, revealing more of your natural teeth. The procedure only lasts about an hour, and recovery is swift, with most patients returning to their regular routines within days. By surgically adjusting your gum line, this procedure could dramatically transform your smile’s aesthetics.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are another cosmetic dentistry treatment option available at Locust Valley Dentists. These custom-made veneers are perfect for patients with stained, chipped, cracked, or gapped teeth. Your beautiful new teeth can be customized down to the shape, color, and size, offering a renewed yet natural-looking enhancement. The entire process, from consultation to the final placement, typically spans over two appointments, and with good care, your new crown could last for several decades. 

White Spot Treatment

Have your teeth lost their sparkle? White spot treatment can help you reclaim your dazzling smile. Dr. Koster can help remove the distracting white spots that form on your teeth as a result of decalcification. ICON white spot treatment offers a non-invasive way to address white spots on the teeth in just one 1-hour treatment.


If you have misaligned, crooked, or gapped teeth, you may feel self-conscious about your smile. With Invisalign treatments, you no longer have to let your teeth hold you back from making an incredible first impression. Invisalign aligners offer a discreet, quick, and comfortable way to straighten your teeth without the need for clunky braces. Locust Valley Dentists offers Invisalign treatment to teens and adults looking to take their smiles to the next level.
