Even though there may still be snow on the ground in Maine when you read this, Spring is just around the corner!  With each wonderous bulb that pops up, Spring brings the promise of renewal and growth.  Why not apply the spirit of Spring to your smile? Cosmetic procedures can rejuvenate your teeth and give you the smile of your dreams!  We offer a variety of options for patients looking to brighten, whiten, or fix their teeth, many of which can be accomplished in as little as one or two appointments.  Here are 5 ways we can help you improve your smile:

Porcelain Veneers

If you have chipped, worn, or stained teeth, porcelain veneers can provide a sleek and attractive option for changing their shape, color, and length. Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that are shaped and fixed to your natural teeth, and can be custom fitted to your teeth in just two short visits.  They look and feel just like your other teeth, and don’t require special or additional care. 

If the condition or color of your teeth has been detracting from your everyday life, porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution for you. Have a  short conversation with Dr. Brunacini or Dr. Karagiorgos to learn more!

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most well known cosmetic treatments, and we offer both in-office whitening and at-home options. Teeth whitening is a safe way to achieve the bright smile you’ve always wanted, and can be done in just a few treatments.  However, whitening is not for everyone.  For example, whitening previously restored teeth, especially in the front part of the mouth, can make the fillings more noticeable, since the enamel will whiten while the fillings resist the bleach. Also, bleaching can also be uncomfortable if you have sensitive teeth.  Dr. Brunacini or Dr. Karagiorgos can work with you to determine if bleaching is right for your teeth.  

Dental Bonding

Small chips and discolorations in your teeth are often unnoticeable to others, but we understand that seeing the same stains and fractures everyday can become a significant irritation. Dental bonding is an affordable and painless procedure that can address many different cosmetic flaws or injuries, by smoothing out or repairing damaged teeth.  We use dental bonding to sculpt individual teeth with a special tooth-like material that looks, acts, and feels like the real thing. Bonding can also be completed very quickly, as the composite resin adheres quickly to your teeth and can then be polished and shaped to match your other teeth.  This is a great option for a lot of our patients!

Dental Implants

If you have missing teeth, there may be a better solution for you than wearing uncomfortable dentures. Many people believe that if they can still eat, then tooth loss isn’t an issue; however, missing teeth leads to a loss of support in the mouth and forces other healthy teeth to drift. Dental implants provide a great long-term option for replacing lost teeth in a safe and predictable way, as they are designed to last a lifetime.

You may be better suited for implants than you realize as your general health is a better indicator than your age.  We aim to make every process as comfortable and safe as possible, and we can help you to determine whether implants are the right choice for you.


Did you put off getting braces when you were younger? Do you notice changes in the way your teeth fit together? 

Falmouth Dental Arts can help you correct crooked teeth, gaps, overbites, or other bite issues with Invisalign treatment.  Invisalign can be a great alternative to traditional wired braces.  More than simply giving you a straighter smile, Invisalign can also enhance your ability to chew and even alleviate some speech impediments.  Straighter teeth are also easier to clean and give many people some added confidence behind their smile.

There are several clear tray straightening products. Invisalign is the one we recommend and use at Falmouth Dental Arts. Using the world’s most advanced clear aligning process, Invisalign can start transforming your smile from the first fitting!
