We believe that you should play a prominent role in your cosmetic treatment. After all, you’re the one who will be spending time with the results. Before beginning treatment, you will have a consultation with Dr. Ricciardi. Together, you will discuss your cosmetic goals, treatment options, and his professional recommendation for your cosmetic treatment plan. Should you decide to pursue a smile makeover, it’s likely that several procedures will come together to entirely remake your smile. Your final results will be fulfilling, functional, and finely crafted.
Hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening has been around for many years – and with good reason. This treatment is incredibly popular, and appropriate for many types of patients. Some find their whitening results so dazzling that they don’t need to seek further cosmetic treatment. Choosing whether you will whiten in-office or at home affects the speed and intensity of your results. Talk to Dr. Ricciardi if you’re not sure which whitening method is right for your smile.
Dental bonding adheres tooth-colored composite to problem teeth. This procedure can be completed within one office visit, often without tooth preparation (unless the tooth is decayed). Bonding is right for a number of cosmetic aims, including:
- Covering chips or cracks
- Whitening teeth
- Reducing sensitivity
- Filling gaps between teeth
Dental veneers are v-shaped restorations that change the appearance of a smile. They are bonded directly to tooth surfaces, where they can remain in place for decades (with proper care). Porcelain is an aesthetically ideal dental material, and can be matched to surrounding natural teeth. To learn more about porcelain veneers, click this paragraph’s heading.
