If you have a less than attractive smile, porcelain veneers are a simple and effective solution to enhance the beauty of your smile. Using porcelain false fronts, we hide a number of cosmetic defects hurting the appearance of your smile. Through a simple and safe procedure, we hide chips, cracks, and discoloration. In some cases, we can even fix alignment issues to give you a straighter, whiter smile that closely mimics your natural teeth. However, while porcelain veneers are effective, they can’t be used to treat all cosmetic flaws. If you’re considering porcelain veneers in Burlington MA, we have the information you need to determine if veneers are right for you.

For many patients, orthodontic treatment seems out of reach. They didn’t receive treatment during their youth, they’re too busy, they have a sensitivity to metals, and many more reasons prevent people from straightening their smiles. In most cases, patients believe that correcting misaligned teeth is purely cosmetic, but there are numerous health advantages related to orthodontic correction. To achieve optimal oral health without the concerns associated with traditional braces, Complete Dental Care recommends patients consider six month smiles, the high quality invisible braces Burlington residents trust.

I had crowded, crooked teeth my entire life. I remember as a kid, I used to practice my smile for photo day at school. I’d hold a wide smile without showing any teeth. As an adult, I found myself talking, eating, laughing, and smiling in public with one hand over my mouth. A quick review of my social media photo albums revealed that I either had the close-lipped smile I perfected in my youth, or I was frowning in every picture. If friends happened to catch me in a candid shot that exposed my teeth, I hid the photo. In less than a year, I was graduating from college, and starting my own business. All my classmates talked about how important presenting a polished, professional image to the public via websites and social media was to building a client base. Each time I thought about meeting people, presenting proposals, or smiling for the camera, my stomach would sink. I’d worked diligently for four years, and my smile was the one thing keeping me from feeling confident in my abilities. That’s when I decided to visit Dr. James P. Kostas and the caring team at Complete Dental Care of Burlington, MA to find out how I could straighten my teeth. If you’re a working professional considering orthodontics, I highly recommend you pick up the phone and call to schedule your smile evaluation and consultation today.

Congratulations! We had record-breaking snow this year, but that has (finally) melted and everyone is ready for summer in Massachusetts. There’s so much to do: a weekend at the Cape, sailing on the Charles River, a Red Sox game, explore Beacon Hill, or a tasty backyard picnic with family and friends. No matter what activity suits you, there are sure to be many reasons to smile. So, now is the time to make sure your smile is looking as beautiful as possible. With teeth whitening, Dr. James P. Kostas and the team at Complete Dental Care in Burlington, MA, will have your teeth looking their absolute best.
If your teeth are yellowed, stained or otherwise discolored, then as the saying goes—join the club. Millions of Americans have less than perfectly white smiles and the reasons are all generally the same:
- Commonly consumed foods and beverages, such as berries and tomatoes or coffee and red wine
- Smoking and chewing tobacco
- Certain medications, such as the antibiotic tetracycline
- Teeth grinding and clenching, which can darken the biting surfaces of your teeth
- Improper oral hygiene
- The aging process
- Tooth injuries
