For many people, having discolored, chipped, or otherwise unsightly teeth can have a significant impact on self-esteem. Having confidence in your smile can make all the difference in the world for some.
Dr. Joseph LoPinto, DDS, understands the importance of beautiful teeth and works hard to give patients the radiant smile they seek through cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses the various procedures and treatments that focus on the aesthetic side of dental care. Whether you need a veneer to fix a discolored tooth or you're considering implants to replace missing teeth, you can rest assured knowing Dr. LoPinto has the skills to make your smile shine.
You may not know this, but teeth are porous. Your teeth are covered in tiny pores, and over time, through normal eating and drinking habits, they can be stained by the things they come into contact with.
Coffee, tea, red wine, blueberries, these can all stain your teeth. Fortunately, this can be corrected with a multitude of whitening options.
With the use of custom-molded dental trays and special whitening gels, the chemical bonds of the stains can be broken down and gently removed from the teeth altogether. This is an easy and pain-free way to revitalize your smile without extensive treatments.
Veneers are a painless and noninvasive method of restoring discolored, chipped or cracked teeth. Thin ceramic plates are perfectly matched to the color and contours of your natural teeth and applied to the enamel with dental cement.
These veneers are nearly indistinguishable from the rest of your dentition and can be cleaned and treated just like any other tooth.
Crowns and Implants
Crowns are porcelain or composite caps that are placed over severely damaged or decayed teeth to maintain appearance and function without having to remove the tooth altogether.
Like other restorations, the crown is matched to the color and shape of the surrounding teeth to seamlessly blend in.
Dental implants, on the other hand, are permanent replacements for missing teeth. A titanium post is implanted into the jaw and bonded to the bone through a process known as osseointegration. After a period of healing, a beautiful crown is affixed to the implant.
A dental implant not only completes your smile and returns the full strength of your bite, the post also stimulates the jaw the same way a root would prevent the loss of bone mass often associated with missing teeth.
