Kostas, DMD, P.C. we understand there is no truer dental emergency.  Our office is here to put your mind at ease in situations like these.  Dental emergencies can occur any time and any place; that’s what makes them an emergency!

Our Burlington office has recently expanded hours, increased coverage and added more providers to better serve the Middlesex County area.  With new office hours 6 days a week and being available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for dental emergencies, Complete Dental Care wants to make sure you are never without coverage.   Whether the emergency is esthetic, trauma, or infection related Dr. Kostas and are ready, willing and able to take care of you in your time of need.  We understand that our patients come first.  We understand that as service providers we are here to make your life easier, and better yet, we find happiness in doing so.  Our office is trained in the latest in dental technologies.  With the advancements of CEREC same day crowns we are equipped to provide you a beautiful porcelain replica of your tooth within 1 and a half hours.

Examples of dental emergencies include: Knocked out or avulsed tooth, discomfort or pain, large swellings, uncontrolled bleeding, and immediate esthetic concerns (including broken dentures).

Speed counts in saving a knocked out tooth.  That is why Dr. Kostas and are available 24/7 to help protect your smile.  If you do lose a tooth, contact our offices immediately and then follow these steps:

  1. Do not touch the root! You will be introducing bacteria and foreign particles to the part of the tooth that will be re-integrated.
  2. Rinse the tooth and ensure that all foreign particles are removed.
  3. Carefully try to re-insert the tooth back into its socket. Gently hold the tooth in place until you can see your provider
  4. If the tooth cannot be inserted it should be carried to the office in a medium. Milk works great and is usually accessible but saliva and water can work as well.  These mediums however, carry a less successful prognosis.

Improve Your Smile With Dental Implants

May 31, 2015

ThinkstockPhotos-519555723Missing teeth can stand between you and a healthy, happier smile. We all want to look our best, and our teeth are no different. Missing teeth can be a confidence killer, but there is hope with dental implants from Dr. James P. Kostas at Complete Dental Care in Burlington, MA.

 

Implant Dentistry Overview

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss. Losing teeth can be a drag and a confidence killer. Dental implants provide patients with the strength and stability to eat all the foods you love without struggling to chew. In addition, dental implants stimulate and maintain the jaw bone, thus avoiding bone loss and helping to preserve facial features. Dental implants in Burlington are getting the expert treatment.

 

Common tooth-loss factors:

  • Tooth decay
  • Root canal failure
  • Large cavities
  • Dental injuries
  • Gum disease (Periodontitis)
  • Trauma to the mouth (tooth injury)
  • Excessive wear and tear
  • Congenital defects

Implant dentistry services:

  • Quality, proven, reliable procedures
  • Exam and X-Rays
  • Placement of dental implants
  • Restoration to final results

 

The benefits to having dental implant dentistry are many including properly aligning your bite, natural-looking teeth, better oral health, bone loss prevention and so much more. Dental implant patients enjoy restored function, which allows a healthy diet of hard-to-chew foods, improved speech and more. Your new smile will boost your confidence, enhance your appearance and improve your quality of life.

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. We also offer CEREC same day crowns, dental implants, full mouth reconstruction, and invisible braces with Six Month Smiles. Whatever your smile needs to look its absolute best, you’ll find it here at Complete Dental Care, your local Burlington, MA dentist.

Kick Off 2015 with a Smile

Teeth Whitening Options for Patients from Burlington and Beyond

November 19, 2013

teeth whiteningIf you feel discouraged by stains on your teeth, you should know you’re not alone. Everyone struggles with staining to one degree or another. That’s because many stains are caused by commonly consumed foods or drinks. Coffee, tea, red wine, soda, juice, and other beverages are often at fault. But there are other causes, too, like tobacco use, certain medications, and even aging. All of which makes teeth whitening one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services I offer.

Specifically, I offer two types of teeth whitening: take-home whitening and Zoom! in-office whitening.

With Zoom! my patients can come away from an appointment at my Burlington office with a bright, dazzling smile in just a single appointment. This is a great treatment option for patients who need a whiter smile in a hurry.

If you don’t need immediate results, take-home whitening can produce the same kind of look over a period of time, and in the comfort of your own home. With specially-made whitening trays and professional-strength whitening gel, whitening at home is easy and only takes about 30 minutes a day.

Do you have questions about teeth whitening? Call my office today to schedule an appointment. During your visit, I can explain all your options and recommend the solution that works better for your own situation.

I’m happy to offer two great teeth whitening solutions to patients from Burlington, Bedford, Billerica and Woburn.

Avoid the Long-Term Commitment of Conventional Brace with Six Month Smiles

October 17, 2013

Six Month SmilesWe know how important a straight, beautiful smile is to a busy professional. We also know how much you want to avoid a long-term treatment like conventional braces. That’s why, at Complete Dental Care in Burlington, MA, I offer Six Month Smiles.

Are you one of the millions of adults in need of adult braces who are unhappy, self-conscious or even embarrassed about your smile?

Many adults spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk.  They feel stuck because they do not want to wear adult metal braces for years or they are concerned that other corrective teeth straightening procedures could be too invasive or too expensive.  Six Month Smiles provides an effective, safe and affordable cosmetic braces solution that fits your lifestyle.

A revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative thought – Six Month Smiles® utilizes specialized clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth in an average time of just six months

This clear braces approach takes just about half a year to complete and serves as a discreet alternative to traditional bracket and wire braces. With a straighter smile, you can look forward to enjoying a better sense of confidence, and even a better sense of health and wellbeing.

That’s because a straight smile isn’t just good for your self-esteem—it’s good for your oral health, too. When teeth are misaligned, they become repositories for food and bacteria. Straight teeth, on the other hand, are easier to keep clean with normal brushing and flossing.

But is this clear braces system right for you?   I am happy to answer that question during a visit to my Burlington, MA dental office. If an oral exam reveals that it is, we can start working on your treatment plan immediately. In just a matter of months, you can have a more beautiful and confident smile.

Call Complete Dental Care today to reserve an appointment with me and my Burlington, MA dental team. We also serve patients from Bedford, Billerica, Wilmington, and Woburn.
