A beautiful smile is an accessory you can wear every day; it enhances every outfit and social interaction. Straight, white smiles are a sign of health and add beauty to the face. But over time, the smile may fade due to decay or trauma.
At Andover Comprehensive Dental Care, we offer cosmetic dental services to keep patients smiling beautifully. Our dentists, Francis R. McCarthy, DMD, and Rosalia A. Gallo, DMD, offer a variety of skillfully performed cosmetic procedures that are sure to keep your smile at its brightest.
Some of the cosmetic services we offer include, but are not limited to:
- Porcelain crowns, bridges, and veneers
Professional Teeth Whitening for Dramatic Results
If you experience stubborn surface stains, professional tooth whitening by Drs. Gallo and McCarthy can dramatically improve your smile in just one appointment. The whitening process is simple yet strong, and must be administered by a dental professional to avoid sensitivity or damage to the soft tissues.
Dental Implants: The Whole Tooth and Nothing but the Tooth
Only a dental implant can replace an entire tooth from root to crown. Tooth roots serve important functions: they provide a sturdy base for our teeth, and keep our jawbone stimulated and full. Any restoration outfitted with a supportive implant post stands to gain much in the way of stability and longevity.
Drs. McCarthy and Gallo offer dental implant services to their patients because they recognize the immense advantages provided by this tooth replacement method.
Our Patients Deserve Porcelain
Porcelain restorations are beautiful, sturdy, and unique in their ability to reflect light just as natural teeth do. Porcelain restorations, such as crowns or bridges, are matched to precisely match the surrounding teeth. We can create porcelain restorations as stand alone devices or in conjunction with dental implants.
Preserve Your Aesthetics with Composite Fillings
In the past, silver fillings were the standard in cavity care. These metal fillings were comprised of an amalgamation of different metals (hence their alternate name, amalgam) but primarily consisted of mercury, which is a cost effective and easy to work with material. Many people have raised concerns over the safety of using this material. Despite no evidence pointing towards the unsafety of mercury fillings, many have chosen to err on the side of caution and remove and replace their amalgam fillings.
At Andover Comprehensive Dental Care, cavity-riddled teeth can be filled using tooth-colored composite fillings. Composite fillings are preferential for a myriad of reasons, including their discreet appearance and safe ingredients. They also affix onto teeth, preserving maximum tooth structure.
