We live in an age of makeovers from houses to cars to wardrobes, makeup, and hairstyles. What’s the next logical step? Ask general and cosmetic dentist Dr. Frederick Solomon at Tribeca Smiles, and he might suggest a smile makeover. It’s where we get to work on your smile from whatever angle is needed to make it as brilliant as you’ve always dreamt it could be. This can involve one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures like veneers, composite bonding, tooth implants, whitening, etc. But before anything, we want to get to know you as a person. It’s only by carefully getting a better, holistic idea of you that we can have a successful makeover that lasts. We also have an excellent smile makeover software in our New York, NY office to help you envision your new look.
"I had a root canal today and have been dreading what would occur during and after the procedure. Dr Solomon and his team walked me through the steps and made feel comfortable throughout.A few jokes and magic tricks relaxed me even more. If I could give 5 plus stars I would :)"- K.R. / Google / Mar 08, 2019

"Well, while here in New York, I had to get one of my teeth pulled today‼️ Yep pulled😁 I was so blessed to be seen by Dr Fred Solomon of Tribeca Smiles. When I tell you that I had an amazing experience‼️He was so gentle and so patient. The numbing process was a breeze by the way. Then shortly after that the extraction began. I just felt a slight pinch and a little pressure then out came the tooth‼️ I didn’t even realize that he was done‼️ His staff was very friendly and very professional. Anybody living in New York and looking for a dentist should definitely check out Tribeca Smiles."- C.D. / Google / Jan 03, 2020
"Excellent service and caring staff!"- C.S. / Google / Dec 11, 2019
"On vacation in NYC I annoyingly chipped a veneer at lunch. As I was in the area I googled 'Cerec' and found Tribeca Smiles. Dr Solomon was kind enough to fit me in the same day, and I was soon on my way with a perfect repair.Dr Solomon and his staff are very friendly, helpful, and pleasant to deal with.But a highlight was meeting Merlin the dog who Dr S allowed me to have my photo taken with. Highlight of my day!(Don't worry if you're not keen on dogs. Merlin is hidden out of the way - but I missed my mutt and Dr S was kind enough to let me see him).If you're here on vacation and want any emergency dental work, I would happily recommend giving Tribeca Smiles a call first to see if you can be fitted in."- T.L. / Google / Dec 07, 2019
Oral health must first be established before any cosmetic solutions can proceed. If there are prohibitive oral health problems, like a misaligned bite or gum disease, they will need to be addressed first. A smile makeover candidate is anyone who wants to improve their smile for cosmetic reasons and for whoever wants a self-esteem boost. The standard procedures for veneers, bonding, and bridges are just the start of what cosmetic dentistry can accomplish. It has reached such an advanced state that it can address nearly any functional or aesthetic concern you might have about your teeth.
What To Expect
Since there is such a wide range of procedures and combinations of procedures, listing everything to expect from a smile makeover would be prohibitive. It’s better to drop by for a free 15-minute consultation with Dr. Solomon to get a better sense of how to proceed. From there, he will provide detailed outlines about what you can look forward to for each procedure. Generally speaking, tooth color is one of the main areas to address. Your treatment plan can involve teeth whitening or replacing silver/amalgam dental fillings with new, tooth-colored restorations. Finally, to achieve the balance between a brilliant white and a more natural white, we carefully match all colors of veneers, bonding, crowns, bridges, and implants to your teeth as well.
The types of procedures in your makeover will greatly affect the timeline of a recommended follow-up appointment. Dr. Solomon and his highly trained staff will be with you every step, with every procedure, so that you never have a doubt about what to expect and how to best take care of your teeth through each stage. Dr. Solomon will also make sure your expectations are being met, if not exceeding them.
