Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Q: Why should I consider cosmetic dentistry?

A: Cosmetic dentistry is one of the dentistry's fastest growing areas and for good reason. No longer just for "high profile" personalities, people of all ages and vocations are taking advantage of the fact that cosmetic dentistry is more affordable than it was just a decade ago.

Q: What can I do to make my teeth whiter?

A: Dr. Pisciotta now offers the in-office Chairside Whitening system. In just an hour, this system delivers immediate results, safely and effectively. The active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide, which has been used safely for many years in treating gums and other oral soft tissue. With proper care and regular touch ups at home, your smile will be beautiful for years.

Q: Can my old silver-colored fillings be replaced?

A: Yes. In a simple procedure, old or unsightly fillings can be replaced with natural-colored filling materials that match the color of your teeth. And these materials are more durable and natural-looking than ever before.

Q: What if I have chipped or cracked teeth?

A: Chipped or cracked teeth can be easily repaired using several methods. A crown or "cap", inlays or onlays can restore a tooth to its original shape, strengthen a tooth and improve your overall appearance. Veneers are thin custom-made moldings that cover the fronts of unsightly teeth. All of these restorations use natural tooth-colored, high-tech materials that are color-matched to the precise shades of your teeth.

Q: What can I do about missing teeth?

A: Missing teeth can be replaced using fixed bridges or implants. Following a consultative exam, we can discuss which procedures we would recommend for you.

Q: What about crooked or crowded teeth?

A: Teeth that are crowded or crooked can often be corrected with either cosmetic restoration procedures or orthodontic tooth movement. We will gladly discuss which option we would recommend for you.

Q: What can be done about uneven or excessive gums?

A: Minor cosmetic surgery can correct gum lines around the teeth, giving you a more even, pleasing smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry – A Reason to Smile

Tooth Whitening

No longer just for "high profile" personalities, more and more people of all ages and job descriptions are turning to cosmetic dentistry to improve their smiles. It's easy to do, readily available and more affordable than ever.

In a recent survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), tooth whitening (bleaching) alone has grown by over 300% in the past five years.

A Closer Look

Cosmetic dentistry can be a simple way to improve your appearance. Did you know:

  • 92% of adults believe a healthy smile is an important social asset.
  • 88% of adults believe an unattractive smile makes a person less appealing.
  • 74% of adults feel an unattractive smile can hinder career success.
  • Only 50% of adults are satisfied with their own smile!

Statistics based upon an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Consumer Poll.

More Tooth-Colored Restorations

Each of your teeth depends on the others. So when one is damaged, the health of the others is threatened. That's why we may recommend an artificial covering (crown, veneer, inlay or onlay) be prepared and cemented over existing teeth to help restore normal function. Designed and custom-made to look and feel like your natural teeth, these restorations can cover unattractive gaps, stained or crooked teeth, old fillings and tooth decay to enhance your smile.

CEREC® Technology

Dr. Pisciotta is one out of a small number of dentists in the country to utilize the CEREC technology for crown and onlay restorations. This current technology allows restorations to be completed in one appointment by using Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacture (CAD/CAM). This creates a perfect look, with perfect comfort, along with long-lasting and durable quality restorations. This is the most cost-effective restoration available to the patient today.
