At FDA, we love helping our patients smile! However, if you’re self-conscious about showing your teeth, it impacts your confidence. You smile less, you laugh less, you may even talk less, all just to avoid letting others see your teeth. What if you could have the smile of your dreams? Many dental issues can be corrected through cosmetic dentistry. If your teeth are broken, chipped, crooked, stained or otherwise discolored, a simple consultation with Dr. Brunacini or Dr. Karagiorgos can set you on the path toward a better smile! In the majority of cases, just two visits to our office can help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Here is a brief overview of your cosmetic dentistry options:
Dental bonding is an affordable and painless procedure that can address many different cosmetic flaws or injuries, such as chips and discoloration, by smoothing out and repairing damaged teeth. At FDA, 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; the composite resin adheres to your teeth and can then be polished and shaped to match your other teeth in one or two visits. Talk with Dr. Brunacini or Dr. Karagiorgos about how dental bonding can help you achieve your ideal smile.
Teeth whitening is one of the most well known cosmetic treatments and a safe way to achieve the bright smile you’ve always wanted. We offer both in-office whitening and at-home options. 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. Bleaching can also be uncomfortable if you have sensitive teeth, so reviewing your options with Dr. Brunacini and Dr. Karagiorgos will help you determine if bleaching is the best option for you.
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. Many people believe that if they can still eat, tooth loss isn’t an issue; however, missing teeth lead to a loss of support in the mouth and forcing other healthy teeth to drift. At FDA, we aim to make every process as comfortable and safe as possible, and we will help you to determine whether implants are the right choice for you.
There are many advantages to replacing your old metal crowns and bridges with porcelain. Porcelain restoration provides you with the translucency and shine of your natural teeth; the texture of the polished porcelain is very similar to that of enamel. When we fit a porcelain crown, we sculpt and shape the porcelain to fit perfectly with your existing bite, and the porcelain is hard enough to resist wear while soft enough to avoid damaging your natural teeth. Whether your reason is cosmetic, physical, or a bit of both, Dr. Brunacini and Dr. Karagiorgos are here to discuss your dental health goals with you and find the right fit.
So, if you feel the condition of your teeth has become a hindrance to your daily life or harmful to your overall health, it is time to make a change! Give us a call at 207.781.5900 and learn just how quickly your dream smile can become a reality!
