Most people who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth do not realize the numerous ways cosmetic care can heal a smile. Cosmetic dentistry can correct crooked teeth, spaces between your teeth, chipped teeth, broken or missing teeth, stained or discolored teeth, and having a “gummy” smile. Dr. Torrisi, Dr. Burba, or Dr. Smart will create a customized treatment plan especially for you, based on your age, goals and your financial comfort level.
Imagine a whiter, more brilliant smile! Placement of porcelain veneers is a conservative cosmetic treatment that makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth. If you have crooked teeth, chipped teeth, gaps in teeth, or dull or stained teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution. Your dentist will skillfully create a straight, brilliant smile that enhances your appearance and your self-esteem.
Teeth Whitening – Opalescence® Boost
The in-office Opalescence® Boost whitening system is a powerful, in-office procedure that produces fast, dramatic results. Unlike previous methods, this new generation in teeth whitening no longer requires a specialized light source, and keeps you even more comfortable than before. In the skilled hands of your Torrisi and Burba Dental Associates team, you will see dramatic results by the end of your appointment.
You can straighten your teeth without metal braces. Invisalign® is an FDA-approved system that uses clear, removable aligners to incrementally straighten your teeth. There are no uncomfortable brackets or wires, and because you remove the aligners to eat and drink, there is no need to worry about food restrictions or problems with brushing or flossing.
Invisalign® begins with the use of 3D computer imaging to map out your entire treatment plan in advance, allowing you to see what your teeth will look like before you begin treatment. Then, using the imaging, a series of custom aligners will be created that will move your teeth incrementally. You will replace each aligner every two weeks with the next aligner in the sequence. Average treatment time from your initial teeth position to a brilliant, straight smile ranges from nine-to-15 months. The best part is that most people will never even notice you are undergoing treatment!
You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Dr. Torrisi, Dr. Burba, and Dr. Smart use a tooth-like crown made of porcelain to restore your tooth after the decay has been removed. Crowns are also used to restore chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth, and other damage. Also called “caps,” porcelain crowns mimic natural looking teeth in both shape and color.
Tooth-Colored Fillings or Restorations
Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured, or discolored teeth? If so, you may be a good candidate for composite resins, also known as tooth-colored fillings or restorations. When the decay has been removed from the tooth, it is replaced with “filling” material. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned-out portion of the tooth. However, with new advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings, resulting in a long-lasting, brighter, whiter smile. The new tooth-colored material is bonded to the teeth for a stronger restoration.
Years of wear and tear, injury, or poor care can hurt the look and function of your teeth. Dr. Torrisi, Dr. Burba, and Dr. Smart change lives every day through restorative dentistry. Rejuvenate your smile today!
