Personalized Cosmetic Dentistry Can Enhance Your Smile
Porcelain veneers are thin, durable shells that are custom-made to conceal imperfections in your smile. Before you receive your permanent veneers, Dr. Olszewski can apply temporary bonding to your teeth, allowing you to see what your smile will look like after the procedure. You can provide feedback at that time that will be incorporated into your veneers, which will be created at a trusted offsite lab and ready to place in about two to three weeks.
At Northampton Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments. We offer the revolutionary KöR® Whitening Deep Bleaching™ system. This treatment combines at-home and in-office techniques to dramatically lighten teeth. If you select strictly at-home whitening, Dr. Olszewski will provide you with custom-made trays and whitening gel. The gel is similar to that used during an in-office whitening session, but the peroxide concentration is lower, making it safe for prolonged use.
Dental bonding is a process of applying tooth-colored composite resin to the teeth to conceal minor imperfections. Resin is selected to match the color of your natural teeth. Next, the resin is carefully applied to create the appearance of symmetry in your smile, covering stains, chips, cracks, and gaps between teeth. Finally, the resin is carefully trimmed and polished to achieve a natural appearance.
Excess gum tissue can cause healthy teeth to look worn or underdeveloped. Dr. Olszewski uses an advanced WaterLase® laser, which combines laser energy with a stream of air and water, to remove excess gum tissue, creating a more attractive frame for your smile. This powerful tool minimizes your risk for infection, and results in minimal discomfort and swelling. This treatment can be an excellent complement to porcelain veneers. More complicated cases are referred to a local periodontist.
A smile makeover combines one or more cosmetic treatments to achieve a complete aesthetic transformation. Dr. Olszewski will provide a complete consultation before your treatment, and together you can select the procedures that will help you achieve your goals. Your procedure will be completely customized to provide the results you want. Dr. Olszewski can provide digital and physical mockups, allowing you to see what your smile will look like after your makeover.
Crooked teeth and a misaligned bite can have a serious impact on your appearance, self-esteem, and health. At Northampton Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®, which use clear, discreet aligner trays to straighten your smile. These mouthpieces are removable, so you can eat any foods you choose, and brushing and flossing is no more difficult than before. Cost and treatment time are about the same as traditional braces. Dr. Olszewski refers more complex cases to a local orthodontist.
