Your smile can be one of your most attractive features. With cosmetic dentistry , you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth. Dr. Curotto’s practice can provide you with options and treatments that can help you smile with confidence.
With the many advances in cosmetic dentistry in recent decades, your dental work can be beautiful and does not need to be made of old-fashioned, unattractive materials, so your new smile will be completely natural looking. It is better dentistry in so many ways-from being minimally invasive to strengthening the teeth to making restored teeth look natural again. Cosmetic Dentistry is also a consumer-oriented approach of asking you what you want and giving it to you.
Some of the many cosmetic dentistry options offered by Dr. Curotto include the following:
- Tooth whitening ( bleaching) brightens teeth that are discolored or stained. Bleaching may be done completely in the dental office or the dentist may dispense a system for you to use at home.
- Bonding can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained, or have spaces between them. With bonding, tooth-colored materials are applied, or bonded, to the tooth surface.
- Enamel shaping involves modifying teeth to improve their appearance by removing or contouring enamel. The process, which often is combined with bonding, usually is quick and comfortable and the results can be seen immediately.
- Veneers are thin custom-made shells designed to cover the front side of teeth. Made of tooth-colored materials, veneers are used to treat spaces between teeth and teeth that are chipped or worn, permanently stained, poorly shaped or slightly crooked.
