If you want truly comprehensive results from your cosmetic dentistry treatment, porcelain veneers may be the optimal choice for you. Dr. Joseph Trovato offers personalized treatment that ensures your veneers will look completely natural. Together with our dental lab, we can create lifelike, thin shells of porcelain, custom-made to enhance your smile. Veneers can conceal stains, cracks, and chips. They can also improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth, close gaps in your smile, and make minor cosmetic adjustments.
Stained teeth can significantly affect your appearance and self-confidence, even if you have an otherwise healthy smile. Honoring our commitment to the latest laser technology, we proudly offer a range of whitening treatments, including the innovative WhiteLase™ system. During treatment, Dr. Trovato will use a powerful fiberoptic laser to remove stains that result from food, drinks, smoking, and other factors. For your convenience, we also offer take-home whitening trays which offer comparable results to in-office treatment.
If you have overly large or irregularly shaped teeth, or surface chips, cosmetic tooth reshaping may be right for you. During this treatment, also known as dental contouring, Dr. Trovato will use a highly precise laser to remove small amounts of enamel from your teeth. Although he will typically remove less than a millimeter of material, the treatment can greatly enhance your smile. Cosmetic reshaping is quick, affordable, and involves minimal discomfort.
Dental bonding is another way to correct surface imperfections, and it can also enhance proportionately small teeth. To improve the shape or size of a tooth, Dr. Trovato will precisely place a small amount of dental resin, carefully selected to match the natural color of your teeth. He will then sculpt the material to achieve a natural look and reshape your teeth according to your cosmetic goals. Bonding can be a great alternative to veneers if you are on a budget.
In some cases, your teeth may appear proportionately small due to excess gum tissue. During laser gum contouring, Dr. Trovato can remove excess tissue and smooth an uneven gum line. Laser therapy allows Dr. Trovato to precisely target treated tissue without affecting the surrounding gums. Additionally, the high-power laser kills bacteria and seals off blood vessels as it goes, reducing swelling, discomfort, and the risk of infection. Gum contouring is often combined with veneers, bonding, or tooth reshaping.
SmoothLase™ is an innovative procedure that can tighten the skin around your mouth and nose for a more youthful appearance. The treatment offers similar results to dermal fillers, with no need for injections. Instead, over the course of three 30-minute treatment sessions, Dr. Trovato will shine a specially designed laser inside your mouth, boosting your body’s ability to produce collagen, which in turn, tightens your skin and reduces lines and wrinkles.
