Smile Makeover

To create a natural-appearing, beautiful smile, attention must be paid to every detail.

This is, perhaps the most demanding aspect of dentistry. Very often a team of dental specialists is required to meet each of the needs of the smile makeover, causing the patient to go back and forth between several different offices.

At Agnini Family Dental, our team of doctors along with our in-house dental laboratory and highly trained team are able to take care of all of the needs of our patients, under one roof! Our team has the ability to create beauty in the “Aesthetic Zone” with Dental Implants, Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers, Same Day Ceramic Onlays and Crowns, Damon Braces, and state-of-the-art Laser Gum Contouring procedures.

 

Veneers and Cosmetic Bondings

Are you ready for a complete smile transformation? Porcelain veneers allow us to cosmetically solve a wide variety of issues with just one treatment. Porcelain is a premium material often used by high quality dentists such as our doctors at Agnini Family Dental as it is:

  • Strong
  • Durable
  • Stain resistant
  • Able to be color-matched to the teeth

By using porcelain our doctors can ensure the quality of your veneers for a more effective, long lasting solution to your cosmetic dental concerns.

What are veneers?
A veneer is a very thin shell of material that is custom made to your specifications for perfect fit, shape and appearance. Veneers require minimal tooth preparation and can effectively transform the way your smile looks by concealing gaps, crooked teeth, chipped teeth, discolored teeth or misaligned teeth.

Our doctors take a very conservative approach to cosmetic dentistry, and will retain as much of your natural tooth structure as possible so you can benefit from beautiful, seamlessly natural results. In order to achieve this, our veneer treatments will take around three weeks to complete and will involve taking an impression of your teeth to create your veneers.

We will create a temporary aesthetic created from your impression so you can determine whether you will experience any speech issues, discomfort, etc. Any issues are then addressed and corrected to ensure your final veneers fit perfectly and look naturally beautiful.

 

Teeth Whitening

Are you lacking confidence due to your discolored smile? Our doctors can help you achieve a beautifully bright smile so you can take charge of those business meetings, corporate events and social functions! Our tooth whitening treatment is safe, effective and long lasting – we will only use products that have been tested and proven for safety and efficiency to provide optimal results.

What causes discoloration?
Teeth can become discolored for a wide range of reasons, and it is important to note that some of these reasons occur from the inside of the tooth, which is why it is important to avoid over-the-counter products. There are many factors that affect the color of the teeth, which can include:

  • Age
  • Consumables (such as cola or coffee)
  • Tobacco
  • Some medications
  • Illness

Our doctors are specially trained to find the source of your tooth discoloration and recommend the appropriate treatment for enhanced results.

We have multiple tooth whitening options to choose from, and with each option providing superior results, we can help you reclaim your most beautiful, white smile. Call today to schedule your smile consult!

 

CEREC Same Day Crowns & Onlayscerec

If your tooth is in need of repair greater than the strength a filling can provide, your tooth may need a crown or onlay. In the past, having a crown or onlay made required 2 visits, two shots, a messy impression, a plastic temporary crown and 2 weeks.

Today, with the advent of CEREC, one of the most exciting technological breakthroughs in modern dentistry, we are able to generate superior quality porcelain restorations (crowns, onlays, & veneers)  in a single visit.

  • Single visit convenience – no temporaries
  • No uncomfortable impression trays
  • Beautiful esthetics – color matched ceramic
  • Enamel – like materials – natural look and feel
  • Clinically proven – millions of successful restorations worldwide

A CEREC restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy. Years ago, dentists could only use amalgam, gold and other metals to fix decayed and damaged teeth. With CEREC, we use a strong, tooth colored ceramic material to restore your teeth to their natural strength and beauty. Also, CEREC is chemically bonded to your tooth, to save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible, while providing you with a restoration that strengthens your tooth.

Orthodontics

 

Correcting crooked and rotated teeth is no longer just for kids. In fact the fastest growing segment of orthodontics today is adults. Straightening and aligning teeth can have a major impact on both the health of the teeth and gums, as well as the TMJ (temporomandibular joint), and will markedly improve the aesthetics of your smile. Untold numbers of adults admit to being so self-conscious about their crooked teeth that they rarely allow themselves to smile fully in public or in photographs. At Agnini Family Dental we believe our patients of every generation deserve to have beautiful, straight teeth!

Many new techniques are now available that allow orthodontic treatment to be a comfortable and painless experience. These new alternatives include: Transparent aligners (Invisalign™), tooth colored braces with space-age flexible wires (Damon Braces).

Damon Braces

The Damon braces system, sometimes referred to as “fast braces”, is today’s most advanced technique. Damon braces are aesthetic and comfortable because of the gentle yet efficient wires that move the teeth with less force and with greater speed than the old steel wires.

The Damon technique works especially well for both children and adults with moderate to severely crowded teeth and in most instances, does not require extraction of any teeth. The reason the teeth move so quickly and with little discomfort is that the Damon brackets slide on the soft, gentle wires with practically no friction and the teeth align more quickly and comfortably.

With traditional orthodontics, heavy friction is created because the brackets are tightly secured to the wire by steel or elastic ligatures. This creates more discomfort and slows down the movement of the teeth. With Damon, the end result is a beautiful smile created 40% faster than with traditional braces.

INVISALIGN®

orthodontics
Invisalign invisible braces are an alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign can straighten your teeth without using unsightly wires and brackets. This state-of-the-art system uses three dimensional computer imaging technology to fabricate a series of clear invisible plastic aligners that you switch out every two weeks an d is considered an excellent substitute for conventional braces. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into appropriate positions to correct and improve your smile. Hardly anyone would know you are wearing them as they are virtually invisible. Additionally, you can eat food without discomfort and you will be able to maintain better home care because the aligners are removed during eating and while cleaning your teeth.

Invisalign is only indicated for mild to moderate crowding of the teeth. An excellent indication for Invisalign is to retreat the crowding that has occurred in patients who have previously worn braces. The advantages of Invisalign are aesthetics and comfort.

Orthodontics has become an integral part of overall treatment for many of our patients — especially in more demanding aesthetic cases. In conjunction with our entire team of dentists, we are able to provide whatever treatment is needed in order to meet your special needs.
