Transformative Orlando, FL Cosmetic Dentistry
The term “cosmetic dentistry” gets tossed around a lot these days, but what does it really mean for you? Some people think that cosmetic dentistry involves complex procedures that totally revamp a smile. It can involve that, but it also includes very conservative treatments that can be completed in a single visit. Basically, cosmetic dentistry is any procedure, big or small, that improves the appearance of a smile.
With cosmetic dentistry, we can:
- Close gaps and correct misalignments
- Cover, remove, or lighten stains
- Alter tooth texture, shape, or size
- Replace missing teeth
- Reshape gum tissue
- Completely redesign a smile!
Dr. John Russo has over 14 years of experience as a cosmetic dentist. He offers the latest treatments, including porcelain veneers and Zoom! Whitening, for high-quality results in a short time-frame. When you visit our Orlando dental office for a consultation, he’ll discuss your goals and concerns, examine your oral health, and recommend treatments catered to your specific needs. He may show you before-and-after photos of cases similar to yours. Quicker, stronger, and more natural-looking than ever, modern cosmetic dental treatments give you a reason to smile!
With the power of Zoom! Whitening, our team is able to help patients dramatically brighten their teeth in the comfort of their very own home. Dr. Russo will provide you with high-grade bleaching gel and custom oral trays – you simply need to wear them together as instructed each day. Whether you’re hoping to achieve fast changes or are in need of a more gradual shift because of sensitive teeth, we can personalize your treatment to fit your needs and create the ideal results you’ve been dreaming of.
Tooth-colored fillings are a dramatic improvement when compared to their traditional, silver-colored counterparts, and our team here in Orlando is happy to offer them to patients young and old so that they can all maintain a smile that both feels and looks great. The procedure is simple and only takes one appointment – Dr. Russo will clean away the damaged portions of the tooth and then place quality composite resin, precisely contouring it to create a pleasing and natural appearance.
In addition to their lifelike appearance, tooth-colored fillings also allow our team to preserve more of your tooth’s remaining structure, helping it to stay stronger and healthier in the long-run. Because there are no metallic materials involved, patients also shouldn’t experience any of the unpleasant sensitivity to temperature changes that’s common with amalgam fillings.
What makes a smile attractive? Is it the shade of enamel? The right alignment? Or perhaps it’s the overall size, shape, and texture of teeth. What if you could create your vision of an ideal smile, and then make that vision a reality in as few as two appointments? That’s what Dr. Russo and porcelain veneers can do for you.
Sometimes called "instant orthodontics," porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain placed over existing, minimally prepared teeth. They allow Dr. Russo to improve the color, shape, size, alignment, and texture of teeth. Best of all, porcelain veneers usually require only two visits for placement. Improvements in the quality of porcelains and advancements in bonding agents and techniques have made achieving a flawless smile easier than ever.
Your porcelain veneer treatment may involve:
- A cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Russo
- A smile analysis, including photos and wax simulation models
- Pre-placement enhancements, such as whitening
- Light tooth reduction to make room for the veneers
- Temporary veneers to give you a preview of your new smile
- Final adjustments and polishing to complete your new look

Having our teeth treated shouldn’t be a battle between what your oral health needs and what your beautiful smile needs. Our patients in Orlando, FL deserve the best of both worlds, which is why Dr. Russo primarily offers all-ceramic restorations. These crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays are precisely crafted from quality dental porcelain, and the final results are so seamless that they even reflect light in the same way as your natural enamel. This option also offers lasting durability, more conservation of healthy tooth structure, and biocompatibility for a safe, comfortable fit.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Braces help patients of all ages achieve the beautifully straight smile of their dreams, but they’re not the right option for everyone. In particular, many adults in the professional workplace just can’t bring themselves to commit to years of wearing a mouthful of metal. This is understandable, which is why Dr. Russo is happy to offer an alternative: Invisalign. Instead of wires and brackets, Invisalign relies on a series of aligners that are virtually unnoticeable when worn, allowing patients to steadily improve their teeth while maintaining the natural appearance they know and love.
