Cosmetic Dental Treatment with Dr. Grossman
Dr. Grossman puts a premium on patient satisfaction and service, starting with your initial consultation. At that time, he will speak with you at length, asking in-depth questions about your expectations and goals for treatment. He will take photographs of your oral and facial structure as references to lay the foundation for a treatment plan. High-tech digital equipment is also available to help patients visualize their results and decide if treatment is right for them. The doctor also has a close relationship with our trusted dental laboratory, which creates a model and a prototype of results for patients to try in advance.
Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Options
Virtually any dental flaws can be addressed with one of the following treatments:
Porcelain veneers have numerous applications, making it one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments available. Veneers are thin shells of high-quality porcelain that are bonded to tooth surfaces to hide aesthetic flaws such as minor discoloration, cracks, misalignment, or misshapen teeth. Dr. Grossman is highly conservative in the application of veneers, preserving as much enamel as possible.
An in-office teeth whitening session with Dr. Grossman can brighten your smile by several shades. The doctor uses a diode laser for whitening in order to minimize the length of treatment, reduce tooth sensitivity, and maximize results. He also offers take-home kits to gradually lighten or touch up patients’ smiles.
Dental bonding is a procedures that uses tooth-colored composite that is applied to the outer surface of a tooth to conceal cosmetic imperfections. Dental bonding is similar to veneers in that it masks underlying aesthetic flaws, like intrinsic stains or chipped teeth. Patients who wish to achieve the effects of porcelain veneers at a more economic price may wish to consider the benefits of dental bonding.
Laser Gum Reshaping
Patients with excessive, receding, or uneven gums can undergo an all-laser gum reshaping treatment with Dr. Grossman. Using state-of-the-art technology like WaterLase and the diode lasers, he create an even gum line that forms an attractive frame for your teeth. These lasers are optimally precise, allowing for exceptional results and reduced healing times.
Dr. Grossman is recognized for his achievements in cosmetic dentistry, serving as a Fellow of the American Society of Dental Aesthetics, and as a Diplomat of the American Board of Cosmetic Dentistry.
A smile makeover is a comprehensive treatment plan that combines multiple cosmetic dental therapies to tackle two or more issues at once. It is similar to a full mouth reconstruction, but focuses only on cosmetic concerns, rather than functional problems. Treatment can be performed in phases, or performed in a single session, based on your needs.
