The Cosmetic Dentist Burlington Turns to for Six Month Smile Transformation

August 30, 2015

couple with great teeth thanks to the cosmetic dentist burlington loves complete dental careI 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.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help You?

Do you ever look at your teeth in photos or in the mirror and wish that they were whiter? If so, you certainly aren’t alone. Millions of Americans are dissatisfied with the shade of their teeth and the way it affects their self-confidence. Whether it’s red wine, tea, tobacco, or your morning cup of coffee, surface stains add up over time and cause your smile to look less than luminous. Whitening toothpastes and over-the-counter products claim to brighten enamel, but achieving truly noticeable results requires a professional grade whitening formula. At Complete Dental Care, we personalize our teeth whitening treatments to create dazzling smiles both in our office and with custom at-home whitening kits. You’ll love how quickly and easily we can lift years of deep stains from your teeth, allowing you to show off a superstar smile not only in 2015, but for years to come!

Are you looking for a way to completely transform the appearance of your smile without extensive dental work? Porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution for you. These wafer-thin shells of dental porcelain are meticulously crafted to look and feel completely natural, correcting a wide variety of common aesthetic flaws. Chips, gaps, cracks, misalignment, and deep stains become a thing of the past in as few as two visits to our office.

Repair Your Smile in One Visit with CEREC Same-Day Crowns in Burlington, MA

September 20, 2014

134124545A dental crown is a restoration that fits over a damaged tooth like a cap, providing structural stability, aesthetic improvement, and protection from infection. Traditionally, the process of creating and placing a crown could take weeks and require multiple appointments, making it an inconvenient and expensive process for the patient. With CEREC same-day crowns, Dr. James P. Kostas helps patients in Burlington, MA communities reclaim their smiles in just one visit to Complete Dental Care.

The CEREC Same-Day Crowns Process

First, we’ll capture a three dimensional image of your prepared tooth using digital impression technology. This means that there’s no messy impression material, and the modeling process takes less time than ever before. The CEREC software then uses the digital data we’ve captured to create a computerized model of your tooth, ensuring accuracy of your restoration’s precise measurements. Within about an hour, your beautifully customized crown will be milled and completed, ready for placement.

With CEREC same-day crowns, there’s no need for temporary crowns, and you don’t have to wait weeks for your final restoration to come back from an off-site laboratory. You come in for your appointment at our state-of-the-art Burlington, MA dental office and leave with a completely restored smile that you’ll love showing off to the world.

Because the CEREC machine mills your crown from a single block of dental porcelain meticulously measured to fit your tooth, we’re able to preserve more of your enamel during the preparation process. In addition to being an incredibly durable and conservative treatment, CEREC same-day crowns are aesthetically superior as well. The porcelain chosen is exactly matched to the color of your existing teeth, resulting in a gorgeously restored smile that looks completely natural.

Contact our office in Burlington, MA today to schedule your visit, and see what a difference CEREC same-day crowns can make in your smile. Our practice warmly welcomes families from throughout Burlington and the surrounding areas, including Bedford, Woburn, Billerica, and more.

Effective Restorative Care with CEREC One-Visit Dentistry

September 17, 2013

crownsWhen a tooth is injured or badly decayed, restorative care is a must. To repair a tooth in this position, I’ll use a protective crown. The problem with a conventional crown, though, is that it can take a couple of appointments to complete. It also requires a temporary that can be problematic and the material used can irritate your gums. Often, the final crown is not as natural looking as a CEREC crown.

That’s why I offer one-visit dentistry with CEREC. Using CEREC, I can cap a damaged or decayed tooth with a fully customized crown in just an hour and a half, saving you time and getting back to your normal schedule quickly. CEREC materials mimic natural tooth structure more closely than any other materials used in dentistry. They are kinder to your gums and are extremely durable.

How Does CEREC One-Visit Dentistry Work?

Your one-visit restoration with CEREC begins with an oral exam. Then, after talking to you about your situation, I’ll create a 3-D model of your tooth and design your crown. That information will be fed to my CEREC machine, which will go to work on your personalized restoration while you rest comfortably in my Burlington dental office. In about an hour, your new crown will be ready and we’ll bond it into place.

The Advantages of CEREC One-Visit Dentistry

Here’s what you can look forward to with your finished CEREC crown:

  • Natural-looking results
  • Conserves your natural tooth
  • More functional smile
  • Improves tooth structure
  • Healthier gums
  • Less time spent at the dental office
