The Artistry and Science of Cosmetic Dentistry
The mouth is a complex system, and all aspects of it must be considered when building a smile, including smiling, chewing, speaking, and breathing. Occlusion and balancing the bite is crucial after any cosmetic procedure, and we use a high-tech method called T-Scan® to ensure the teeth function well together.
Before beginning any cosmetic dentistry procedure, patients will go through an advanced records appointment, so treatment is tailored specifically to their needs.
Dr. Matthew Vaccaro has been working with a dedicated ceramist for more than 15 years. Together, using photographs and our advanced records appointment, we custom-build smiles with each patient’s facial features and overall look in mind.
Many adults who didn’t have braces and have crooked teeth, or who are experiencing relapse because they didn’t wear a retainer after treatment might feel resigned to their misaligned smiles. But with Invisalign, adults and older teens can have straight teeth in less time and without a mouth full of metal wires and brackets.
This discreet treatment straightens teeth without any of the typical restrictions of orthodontics with brackets and wires because you can take out the clear plastic aligners for eating and cleaning the teeth.
Even teeth that are healthy and straight can often use a boost. Everyday living, as well as the aging process, can take a toll on teeth, and your pearly whites may not be as bright as you'd like. With professional teeth whitening, you can have teeth that are several shades whiter in a short amount of time.
We offer in-office teeth whitening, or you can opt for our custom trays for at-home whitening. Whichever option you choose, the end result is the same: A whiter, more youthful-looking smile.
If there is a celebrity smile you admire, there is a good chance those perfect teeth are a result of veneers. These thin, translucent tooth covers camouflage a multitude of imperfections with a smile, including teeth that are too short, crooked, or gapped.
Veneers are a permanent but conservative treatment that removes very little of the tooth surface before application.
Sometimes giving you a beautiful smile is more than just about aesthetics, and restorative treatment is necessary as well. Dr. Vaccaro believes that functionality and aesthetics go hand-in-hand. If your teeth are not working correctly, chances are your smile doesn't look as good as it could. If that is the case, he might suggest the following restorative treatments:
Dental implants—Missing teeth affect the way your smile looks and the way your teeth work. Missing teeth impact the bite as well as your ability to chew properly, which can lead to additional problems in your mouth, including more tooth loss.
Dental crowns—Whether you have a tooth that needs to be repaired or simply covered up, dental crowns are a common fix. With brand-new CEREC Primescan technology, you can get your dental crown in just one appointment.
Tooth-colored fillings—The composite material we use to put a stop to tooth decay can also be used to make small repairs of gaps, chips, and cracks in the teeth. Fillings and repairs will blend in seamlessly with your teeth, so they are not visible at all.
Laser Gum Therapy
Even and symmetrically shaped gums complement a smile more than you realize. Laser gum therapy is a nonsurgical technique that can enhance the look of your teeth by reshaping the gums.
For example, if your teeth appear too short, we can recontour the gums to frame your smile and make your teeth appear longer. The same is true if your teeth appear too long because of gum tissue recession. Laser gum therapy can also treat an uneven gum line. Results are best when combined with veneers and crowns.
