People have a love-hate relationship with their smiles. They either enjoy looking at their smile in the mirror, or they hate what they see and they’re embarrassed to smile. If you want a more beautiful smile, Dr. James LoCascio and the entire team at Highland Advanced Dental Care can help.
This is one of the fastest and easiest ways to get a gorgeous smile. Dental veneers are very thin porcelain shells that cover the fronts of your teeth. Porcelain is a great material for veneers for several reasons:
- It’s very strong and durable.
- It’s translucent, meaning it reflects light like your natural teeth.
- It can created to exactly match the shade of your teeth, or you can choose have a brilliant, brand-new smile.
Veneers are an excellent choice to perfectly cover cracks, chips, and stains. They can even be used to close small gaps between teeth and to make somewhat irregular teeth appear straight. For these reasons, dental veneers are sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics.”
Because they’re bonded to your teeth, veneers strengthen teeth and help protect them against further damage.
Talk about fast! With expertly-applied dental bonding from Dr. LoCascio, you can walk in with chipped, cracked, and stained teeth, and then walk out after a single session looking great!
Dental bonding uses a composite resin that’s tinted to match the shade of your teeth. The resin is applied, shaped, smoothed, and then hardened quickly. Chips, cracks, and stains disappear!
Dental bonding is an excellent and reasonably durable cosmetic solution. The results may not last as long as dental veneers.
Foods, beverages, and smoking can discolor your teeth. You may have tried over-the-counter whitening systems and been disappointed in the results. With our take-home whitening trays and professional-strength whitening gel, you’ll be amazed at how white your teeth can be.
Teeth Contouring / Crown Lengthening
There is more to having a beautiful smile than white teeth. For maximum impact, your teeth should appear smooth and regular in shape. Slight imperfections in the enamel –ridges, bumps, and other irregularities – detract from your smile.
Dr. LoCascio can contour your teeth for your best smile by safely removing tiny amounts of enamel.
Your smile also has to strike the right balance between teeth and gums. If your gums cover too much of your teeth, Dr. LoCascio can reshape your gum line to expose more of your teeth and give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Gum Recession Treatment
Gums that have receded throw off the balance of your smile and may expose tiny gaps between your teeth. Dr. LoCascio is trained in the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique which uses tiny pinholes in the gums rather than incisions. Using those pinholes, Dr. LoCascio will reposition your gums further onto your teeth to give your smile the balance it needs. There are no sutures to worry about, and your healing time will be must shorter than with traditional gum surgery.
