Frequently Asked Questions

As I am aging I feel that my smile is drab. What can be done?

There are so many ways to improve ones smile today. Non-invasive, low-cost care such as whitening, bonding and Invisalign orthodontic care, are just a few options as well as smile enhancement via porcelain laminate veneers (the jewel of cosmetic dental care.) In order to determine what treatments are best for you, we schedule a comprehensive examination with a complete set of X-rays. This allows us to determine that you are healthy enough to undergo cosmetic dental procedures. It is of paramount importance that one has healthy gums and teeth prior to beginning cosmetic dental treatment.

I don’t have dental insurance. Isn’t dental cosmetic treatment very expensive?

Dental insurance does not cover cosmetic dental procedures in general. We work with all patients to try to figure a way to pay for the dental procedures chosen. This can involve payment plans with monthly payments (please note that all payments are completed prior to completion of the dental treatment), CareCredit outside financing with very reasonable and often interest free rates. The cost of beautiful cosmetic dentistry is minor in comparison to the benefits one gets after undergoing smile improvement procedures.

When I am looking to find a cosmetic dentist, how do I know if a dentist is a good cosmetic dentist?

The best way to find the right dentist to do your cosmetic dentistry is to do a few things.

  1. Research | Look at the dentist web site. Make certain that all patient photographs are actual patients the dentist has treated.
  2. Meet the Dentist | I often will offer a no charge 10-minute meet-and-greet so the patient can see the office, meet the staff, and have a few minute general conversation.
  3. Get An Exam | If comfortable thereafter, a comprehensive examination with X-ray is scheduled. A fee is involved with this visit. Once we come up with a treatment plan, financial arrangements and treatment appointments are coordinated.

Dr. Handschuh has done the dental work for our family for over twenty years. The level of personal attention he accords all of us is amazing. When my daughter had both front teeth broken during two different lacrosse games he made special time during off hours to address them…perfectly! I can’t envision a more caring, competent, attentive professional, and someone I strongly recommend to all our friends in Scarsdale.

Great dentist for both cosmetic and routine procedures, accommodating and friendly staff. Weekend hours are a huge plus. Highly recommend.

Dr. Handschuh and his staff are absolutely amazing. Professional, courteous, and friendly staff made me feel like family. I got porcelain veneers on my four front teeth and was very nervous about the procedure. Dr. Handschuh was very gentle and kind to me. He explained very well what was going on and answered every question I had very thoroughly. I have been to other dentists that exaggerated what my needs were in order to make more money. So it was a relief to find a dentist with integrity. My results were beautiful and very natural which was very important to me. Would highly recommend to anyone!!!

Ira is simply the best. I've been to a lot of dentists, including some in LA where they really think about their teeth! -- and the Dental Design Center is by far the most user-friendly, informative, and generally helpful dental care I've ever received. What I especially like is the fact that they can attend to cosmetic issues as well as being mindful of the most important mouth-related health concerns. I actually look forward to seeing my dentist -- how many people can say that?

From the moment I entered The Dental Design Center I felt I was in the right place. The staff was warm, efficient and professional and took my needs and wishes to heart. All procedures were performed with skill, confidence and sensitivity to my understanding and comfort. I have long felt self-conscious and unhappy with my smile. When I saw my new smile, I was overwhelmed with the feeling that the person looking back at me in the mirror was the person who had been waiting to smile at the world for a long time. Not only was Dr. Handschuh's work beautiful; he used subtle details to make my smile individually mine.

I recently visited Dr. Handschuh to inquire about some cosmetic dentistry. I could clearly see why his patients love and value him so much! He is kind, personable, and his work looks wonderful. I look forward to him making my smile look beautiful.
