Beautiful Clean TeethAre you ready for a new smile? Cosmetic dentistry can renew your natural smile. Your Boca Raton, FL, dentist can perform a variety of procedures to improve your smile—from subtle changes to major repairs. East Boca Dental Implant & Specialty Care offers a complete range of cosmetic dentistry procedures to their patients. Here are seven smile-enhancing procedures you should know about.

1. Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a protective covering that is placed over unsightly, damaged, or weak teeth. Dental crowns are cemented onto your teeth and can only be removed by your Boca Raton, FL, dentist. Porcelain crowns are cosmetically pleasing and provide the best natural color. Nothing gives the same luster and depth like a porcelain dental crown.

2. Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can renew your smile. Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells of ceramic, which are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. These shells are routinely used to restore teeth that are chipped, cracked, crooked, or discolored. It's also possible to close gaps between teeth through the use of veneers.

3. Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is inserted into your jawbone to hold a replacement tooth. There are many advantages to dental implants including improved appearance, easier eating, improved speech, stop bone loss, and stimulate bone growth. Dental implants exert natural forces on the bone to keep it healthy and functional.

4. Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made of two crowns and a prosthetic tooth in the middle. If you have missing teeth, a dental bridge will allow you to speak, eat, and smile with confidence. Porcelain bridges look terrific and match the natural teeth well.

5. Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening erases years of dental stains and the process is safe and hassle-free. Take-home teeth whitening involves custom dental trays filled with a whitening gel that you can use at home. For in-office teeth whitening, your dentist will combine a whitening gel with a light source to intensify and speed up the whitening process.

6. Invisalign

Invisalign is the clear alternative to traditional braces and will give you that perfect smile, without the interruptions. Invisalign is used to correct a variety of dental problems, including: crooked, gapped, protruding, or overcrowded teeth. Invisalign gradually moves your teeth using a series of transparent aligners. It takes between 9 and 18 months to create a brand new smile.

7. Dentures

A denture is a removable appliance that can replace your missing teeth. Replacing lost teeth with a denture enhances your smile, improves your speech, and helps you chew food. With proper care, your new denture can last as long 10 years or more.

Want a better life? Start with your smile. Call East Boca Dental Implant & Specialty Care at (561) 226-0100 today to schedule a dental consultation in Boca Raton, FL.

Not everyone has a cosmetically perfect smile. In fact, most people have teeth that vary in shade, shape and resiliency. However, some dental bondingvariations are true defects and detract from personal appearance and self-confidence. That's where cosmetic dentistry from East Boca Dental Implant & Specialty Care can help. The team of four highly skilled dentists offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services in their Boca Raton office, including one of the simplest and most effective: cosmetic bonding. Learn the details here.

What is cosmetic bonding?

You also may hear it called direct bonding or composite resin bonding. Whatever the term used, this remarkable treatment repairs defects such as gaps, chips, hairline cracks, overcrowding and more in just one short visit.

Bonding utilizes a resilient and realistic material called composite resin. It combines glass particles and acrylic, closely mimicking the hardness of tooth enamel and the flexibility of inner dentin. Your dentist at East Boca Dental Implant & Specialty Care will examine your flawed teeth to ensure they are healthy and then proceed to recreate their shape with a procedure that's quick, economical and painless.

The bonding process

Your dentist shapes your teeth, smoothing rough edges and other irregularities. Then, he or she uses a mild etching liquid to prepare the tooth surfaces, conditioning them for a superior bond. The resin itself is a tooth-colored putty and is varied in shade to match your natural tooth enamel.

The dentist applies the resin layer by layer, hardening each one with a special curing light. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry calls bonding an additive process, and the method ensures that the repair is exceptionally strong and long-lasting.

After a final sculpting and trimming, the doctor polishes the bonded teeth to a bright finish. Amazingly, repairs are totally seamless; it's impossible to tell where the natural tooth ends and the composite resin begins.

With routine at-home hygiene and semi-annual in-office care, expect your cosmetic bonding to last for five to ten years. Just don't bite into hard foods such as peanut brittle, candy apples or ice, and if you clench or grind your teeth, ask your dentist about a custom-made mouth guard to protect your beautiful smile.

Just one of many tools

Cosmetic dentistry in Boca Raton provides many paths to a stunning smile. Why not come to East Boca Dental Implant & Specialty Care for a one-on-one consultation with our professional staff? Bonding could help your smile look its very best. Call today: (561) 226-0100.

You can show off a smile that pleases you and tells the world who you really are--confident, happy and personable. Those aesthetic cosmetic dentistrydefects that embarrass you can be corrected with a smile makeover from your cosmetic dentist in Boca Raton, FL. Whether your teeth are dull and drab, have obvious metal fillings or are marred with chips and gaps, the team at East Boca Dental Imlant & Specialty Care can help. Dr. Michael Hennessey, Dr. Karen Zargar, Dr. Sandy Goldenberg and Dr. George Soropoulos enhance smile appearance with a wide array of precise cosmetic treatments. What should your smile makeover look like?

What would like to change?

That's an important question, and your cosmetic dentist in Boca Raton will ask it when you see him or her for an aesthetic dentistry consultation. Be prepared to say what bothers you or what you'd like enhanced. This information helps your dentist determine what treatments would achieve your goals, appearance and oral health/function.

Your dentist will perform an oral examination and take digital X-rays and a CT scan if needed to ensure your mouth is healthy and to visualize your tooth roots, jaw bone and other structural elements. He or she will tell you honestly what can and cannot change, but also it may surprise you how dramatic the enhancements can be.

Offered cosmetic treatments

For instance, your dentist offers in-office and at-home professional teeth whitening. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says teeth whitening is one of the safest, most effective, quickest and most economical cosmetic treatments. Therefore, it's one of the most popular, transforming stained smiles into stunningly bright ones.

Another common treatment is composite resin bonding. Using a tooth-colored and shapeable putty, one of our professional dentists repair small chips, gaps, pits or other minor defects. Hardened and polished, the repairs are seamless and long-lasting. Composite resin also repairs dental decay for a restoration that blends perfectly with healthy tooth structure.

For larger defects, your Boca Raton cosmetic dentist offers porcelain veneers. Perfect for large chips, cracks or deep stains, these shells of fine ceramic disguise the front side of healthy teeth and make them stronger, too. Veneers are a permanent enhancement because they require some enamel resurfacing to ensure a strong bond.

The team at East Boca Dental Implant & Specialty Care also reshape tooth enamel and reduce the appearance of excess gum tissue (gummy smiles). Enamel reshaping is a comfortable and simple process that takes a single dental visit. Gummy smile treatment may be more complex depending on whether the tissue itself must be modified or if upper lip, teeth or jaw require some repositioning.

What's your best smile?

Magician Michel Grandinetti can levitate a 500-pound motorcycle, melt into a 7-foot-tall wall of solid steel, and make borrowed rings vanish and reappear baked inside bread. Yet the master illusionist admits to being in awe of the magic that dentists perform when it comes to transforming smiles. In fact, he told an interviewer that it’s “way more important magic than walking through a steel wall because you’re affecting people’s health… people’s confidence, and you’re really allowing people to… feel good about themselves.”

Michael speaks from experience. As a teenager, his own smile was enhanced through orthodontic treatment. Considering the career path he chose for himself — performing for multitudes both live and on TV — he calls wearing an orthodontic device (braces) to align his crooked teeth “life-changing.” He relies on his welcoming, slightly mischievous smile to welcome audiences and make the initial human connection.

A beautiful smile is definitely an asset regardless of whether you’re performing for thousands, passing another individual on a sidewalk or even, research suggests, interviewing for a job. Like Michael, however, some of us need a little help creating ours. If something about your teeth or gums is making you self-conscious and preventing you from smiling as broadly as you could be, we have plenty of solutions up our sleeve. Some of the most popular include:

  • Tooth Whitening. Professional whitening in the dental office achieves faster results than doing it yourself at home, but either approach can noticeably brighten your smile.
  • Bonding. A tooth-colored composite resin can be bonded to a tooth to replace missing tooth structure, such a chip.
  • Veneers. This is a hard, thin shell of tooth-colored material bonded to the front surface of a tooth to change its color, shape, size and/or length; mask dental imperfections like stains, cracks, or chips, and compensating for excessive gum tissue.
  • Crowns. Sometimes too much of a tooth is lost due to decay or trauma to support a veneer. Instead, capping it with a natural-looking porcelain crown can achieve the same types of improvements. A crown covers the entire tooth replacing more of its natural structure than a veneer does.

If you would like more information about ways in which you can transform your smile, please contact us or schedule an appointment for a consultation. You can also learn more about the techniques mentioned above by reading the Dear Doctor magazine articles “Teeth Whitening,” “Repairing Chipped Teeth,” and “Porcelain Crowns & Veneers.”

Some cosmetic dental problems are easier to fix than others. Surface stains and discolorations that develop from drinking too much dental bondingcoffee, tea, or red wine over time can be removed with professional teeth whitening treatments, making the teeth whiter and brighter than before. In addition to staining, chips, cracks, small gaps, sizing issues, and cavities are among the most common cosmetic and general dentistry problems. The dentists at East Boca Dental Implant & Specialty Care in Boca Raton, FL offer cosmetic bonding treatments for common smile problems, making the teeth look better than before, without conspicuous signs of extensive dental work.

Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry in Boca Raton, FL

Cosmetic dental repairs can be seen as both an art and a science because getting the teeth to look as natural as possible is as important for patients as restoring the strength and health of their smile. Composite resin can be used to fill cavities and fix small issues with your smile. In the past, fixing chipped or uneven teeth sometimes resulted in bulky or less than natural looking results. Tooth (enamel) colored composite resin is a combination of plastic and glass that can be molded to match the texture and hue of a natural tooth.

Dental bonding is one of the most affordable and non-invasive cosmetic treatments available and can be completed in as little as a single visit to the dentist. Cracks, chips, smaller spaces, and uneven teeth can be repaired with bonding, without altering the characteristics that make a smile unique. Bonding can also be used to treat cavities, helping to restore the look and function of your teeth.
