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.

Emergency Dentistry, Burlington: Being prepared

July 16, 2015

ThinkstockPhotos-466239056Your daughter’s wedding is tomorrow.  You have been running around like crazy making sure you are doing everything in your power to make her day special.  At the rehearsal dinner you reflect on how well everything has come together and you start to get excited for the long awaited day.  You reach for the fresh bread at the center of the table, take a big bite and….’CRACK.’  That front filling that has been there for years gives way at the worst moment you can think of.   It’s Friday night!  The wedding is at 1:00pm the next day and all you can think of is showing up as the Jack-o-lantern in all of the pictures!  Here at Complete Dental Care, James P. 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.

Contacting our office in an emergency is easy!  Our convenient website directs you to our emergency number where you will be placed in direct contact with the office.  After hours, our system will send your message directly to one of our providers who will promptly respond to your needs.  Even if you are uncertain if you have a dental emergency, you can contact our doctors who can help you determine if immediate action needs to be taken.

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.

We’re here to Help in Any Dental Emergency

We at Complete Dental Care with Dr. Kostas hope that you never have to experience a dental emergency, but our promise to you is that we will be available and prepared if you ever should. Call us immediately in case of emergency.  We handle emergencies from all of Middlesex County including Burlington, Bedford, Woburn, Wilmington, Lexington and Billerica.

A Stronger, More Confident Smile with Implant-Retained Dentures

March 11, 2015

78769905Dental implants are considered the gold standard of restorative dentistry. For edentulous patients, or those who are missing all of their teeth, dental implants can be used to support a full denture for a secure bite and a beautifully restored smile. At Complete Dental Care in Burlington, MA, Dr. James P. Kostas and his team believe that everyone deserves to enjoy the full benefits of a complete set of teeth. One of the ways that we accomplish this involves the use of implant-retained dentures.

The Advantages of Dental Implant-Retained Dentures

While removable dentures do help edentulous patients enjoy a more normal life following tooth loss, they can be unstable and uncomfortable. Ill-fitting dentures can slip when you speak or eat, and the feeling of a sliding prosthetic against your gums is far from pleasant. With traditional dentures, your diet is limited to foods that are manageable, and you may miss the freedom to enjoy your favorite meals and snacks.

Fortunately, Dr. Kostas has a proven solution that can restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile with complete confidence. Implant-retained dentures are secure, comfortable, and easy to maintain. Strategically placed dental implants are surgically fixed within your jaw, creating a solid foundation for your restoration. Your dentures are custom-crafted to complement your facial contours and will look completely natural.

Unlike many dental practices in the area, Complete Dental Care offers both the placement and the restoration of dental implants right here under one convenient roof. From the first stages of planning your treatment to the moment you see your new smile for the first time, we are your trusted partners in your journey toward improved oral health with dental implants.

Schedule Your Consultation Today

If you are interested in learning more about how implant-retained dentures can help you reclaim your smile and your life, please contact our office today to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Kostas. Our team sincerely looks forward to helping you achieve your oral health goals with the latest in dental technology and a genuine passion for patient comfort. Experience the difference our expertise can make in your smile. From our state-of-the-art dental practice in Burlington, MA, Dr. Kostas proudly serves patients from throughout the surrounding areas, including Bedford, Billerica, Woburn, and beyond.

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

Do you want to learn more about how restorative care with CEREC works? Call Complete Dental Care today to reserve your appointment with me. I offer excellent care to patients from Burlington, Bedford, Billerica, Woburn, and beyond.
