With cosmetic dentistry, you’ll be ready to show that beautiful smile to everyone around you.

A smile is often one of the first features a person notices. Think about it: How often do you meet someone new and immediately look at cosmetic dentistrytheir teeth? Probably pretty often! So if you are dealing with certain imperfections that keep you from having the smile you’ve always wanted then it’s time you talked to our Seekonk, MA cosmetic dentist Dr. Frank Casarella about which cosmetic dentistry treatment is right for you.

Teeth Whitening

If you want to brighten your teeth and remove surface stains prior to a wedding or special event then look to teeth whitening to help improve your smile. While over-the-counter whitening products might boast better prices, they won’t give you the instant and significant results that in-office whitening can. In just one hour we can get some smiles up to eight shades whiter (or more!).

Dental Bonding

Not all cosmetic dentistry has to be expensive or invasive in order to improve the overall shape or look of your smile. If you have one or more teeth that have small chips, stains or other imperfections, or if you have small gaps between teeth, dental bonding might be the solution. Just by applying and molding tooth-colored resin over these problem areas we can hide these imperfections for good. No anesthesia, drills or invasive techniques required!

Tooth Reshaping

Sometimes this cosmetic procedure is used in conjunction with dental bonding to achieve the perfect smile. This cosmetic treatment shaves down tooth enamel to reshape and change the size or appearance of a tooth. Because very little enamel is filed down, this procedure isn’t painful and won’t require topical numbing agents or anesthesia.

Dental Veneers

While some chips, cracks, discolorations and other imperfections may be fixed by bonding, not all problems can be. More significant flaws—as well as misshapen or uneven teeth, and crowded or gapping teeth—can benefit from dental veneers. These thin layers of porcelain are adhered to the front of your teeth to mask aesthetic problems and to improve the overall color, shape, and size of your smile.

Full Makeovers

Sometimes more than one cosmetic dental procedure may be recommended if you have more severe dental issues that you need to address. Fortunately, many of these procedures can work along with others to give your smile the significant makeover it deserves.

If you want to find out which procedure is right for your smile or if you already have an idea of which treatment you want then it’s time you turned to Frank P. Casarella, DMD today. Let Dr. Casarella give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
