Thanks to tremendous advances in dental technology, materials, and procedures, Dr. Russo and his team have transformed many smiles with cosmetic dentistry. And while whatever cosmetic procedure you need to enhance your smile is the one that’s best, there are three that seem to be the most frequently requested. Read on to find out how one of these might be just what your smile needs.
No question, teeth whitening is by far the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure. This simple and affordable treatment will not only whiten and brighten your smile, it just might give you a whole new outlook and attitude. Studies show that people with white smiles are more outgoing and adventurous.
Dr. Russo offers the Zoom! at-home teeth whitening system. You’ll receive two custom-fitted mouth trays and the Zoom! bleaching gel. All you have to do is fill the trays with gel and wear them according to Dr. Russo’s instructions. You’ll see a change after the first treatment and the most wonderful results will be yours in just a couple of weeks.
If your teeth are not only discolored but also damaged, then Dr. Russo may recommend porcelain veneers. These cosmetic wonders are designed to conceal a number of flaws that may be detracting from your smile: teeth that are chipped, cracked or broken; crooked teeth; and teeth that have wide gaps between them.
Each veneer is custom designed and crafted to cover one particular tooth in your smile. Together, porcelain veneers create an entirely new smile. When designing your veneers, Dr. Russo considers features including the size and shape of your mouth, your complexion, and of course the specific imperfection that the veneer will conceal. Your porcelain veneers are cemented to the facial side of teeth in your smile zone and can last decades with proper hygiene and care.
For smiles that require orthodontic treatment, Dr. Russo is a certified provider of Invisalign, the clear alternative to metal braces. With Invisalign, you wear clear plastic aligners that are far less noticeable than traditional brackets and wires. The aligners are arranged in a sequential order that gradually moves your teeth into proper alignment. Treatment time depends on each patient’s individual orthodontic needs, but most cases require between 12 to 24 months to achieve a straighter and more beautiful smile.
