Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners to slowly straighten teeth. The aligners are removable allowing you to eat a diet without restrictions and maintain a normal oral hygiene routine. Unlike traditional braces with metal brackets and wires, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible.

Treatment involves wearing a set of clear aligners for about two weeks. Then you will switch to the next set allowing your teeth to gradually shift. Invisalign is popular for its aesthetics and convenience. To learn more about the Invisalign process, see Invisalign.

Porcelain veneers

These thin shells of porcelain are custom-made to fit each tooth perfectly. They possess light-reflecting properties to mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are durable and can hide almost any imperfection on your teeth.

Porcelain veneers can alter the color, shape, size, and length of teeth. This addresses issues like discoloration, chips, gaps, or misalignment. Dr. Mazzella will permanently bond each dental veneer to the front of each tooth after removing a small amount of tooth enamel. To learn more about the benefits of porcelain veneers, see Porcelain Veneers.

Tooth bonding

Cosmetic teeth bonding is a versatile treatment used when patients are not ready to commit to a more permanent option. It is a less invasive and more affordable option compared to porcelain veneers. Dr. Mazzella can improve the appearance of your tooth with dental bonding in just one visit.
Tooth bonding will repair decayed, chipped, fractured, or discolored teeth or close gaps between teeth. Dr. Mazzella will apply a tooth-colored composite resin to the tooth and mold it into the proper shape. To learn more about the tooth bonding process, see Dental Bonding.

Teeth Whitening

This popular cosmetic dentistry treatment is the easiest way to improve the appearance of your smile. Dr. Mazzella uses professional teeth whitening on patients who want to whiten their teeth. This treatment is affordable, easy, and quick.

Your appointment will only take about two hours. Dr. Mazzella will use a whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide. Once on your teeth, he will use a special LED to activate the gel to whiten your teeth. To learn more about the kinds of stains we can erase with professional teeth whitening, see Teeth Whitening.

A Smile Makeover is a Great Way to Regain Your Smile

A smile makeover is the process of fixing the appearance of your smile using one or more cosmetic dentistry treatments. No matter what your aesthetic concerns are, we can develop a plan to transform your smile while also considering your oral health. If you are unhappy with your smile, a smile makeover is a transformative experience that involves several key components:

  • Custom Treatment Plan: We will tailor your smile makeover to your specific needs. Dr. Mazzella will assess your teeth, gums, and facial appearance to create a treatment plan to address all your concerns.
  • Addressing Multiple Issues: Despite your cosmetic issues, we can create a smile makeover to fix them. Your dentist may include one or several treatments to address your dental issues.
  • Improving Aesthetics: The main goal of a smile makeover is to improve the aesthetics of your smile. This can include making your teeth whiter, straighter, and more evenly shaped. All of which will enhance your overall appearance.
  • Boosting Confidence: A beautiful smile can boost your self-esteem and confidence. Many people find that after a smile makeover, they feel more comfortable in social situations and are more willing to smile openly.
  • Long-lasting Results: With proper care and maintenance, the results of a smile makeover can last a long time. Dr. Mazzella will provide you with instructions on how to maintain your new smile.
  • Improved Oral Health: Improving how your smile looks can also lead to better oral health. For example, aligning crooked teeth can contribute to better dental health by avoiding tooth decay.
