Smile Enhancement (Smile Makeover)

Veneers (Porcelain Veneers)

Porcelain veneers are thin shells (facings) of porcelain that get bonded onto the front sides of the teeth. They are made with a specific shape, size and color, to give our patients the smile that they always dreamed of!

Porcelain Crowns (E4D, CEREC)

A Crown is a “cap” that covers all surfaces of a tooth. It is meant to protect a weak tooth from breaking (tooth with a large filling or root canal). Dr Silvestro utilizes the E4D, the newest technology that makes crowns in one visit. The patient’s tooth gets scanned into the E4D CAD/CAM machine, the crown is designed, and then the crown gets milled out of a block of porcelain in the milling unit. The crown then gets cemented in the same visit! Many people are familiar with the old technology, the CEREC, which D4D Technologies significantly improved upon to make the E4D.

Zoom! Teeth Whitening (In Office)

Also known as “One-hour teeth whitening,” ZOOM! is the best way to whiten one’s teeth. The patient relaxes under a laser light for 4 – 15 minute sessions while the teeth whiten by an average of 8-12 shades! ZOOM! whitening is the same technology that was featured on ABC’s Extreme Makeover to help people with their smiles.

Teeth Whitening at home

This option is great for patients who do not want to sit under the light for an hour (ZOOM! Whitening). Whitening trays are custom made for the patient, and the patient wears these trays 30 minutes a day for 2-3 weeks.

Laser Reshaping of Gum Tissue

Many people have nicely shaped teeth, but too much gum tissue covering them results in a “gummy smile” and short-looking teeth. Removing or re-contouring excess gum tissue can really enhance the appearance of your smile by developing better proportions for your teeth. Dr Silvestro utilizes laser technology to help accomplish this, many times in a single visit. Usually after laser re-contouring, the gums heal very quickly. This can also be done in conjunction with other procedures (such as resin bonding or porcelain veneers) to maximize cosmetic results.

Invisalign® (Invisible Braces, Clear Braces)

The Invisalign® system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you've always dreamed of. Using advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth – and your teeth only – to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by Dr. Silvestro, based on your specific needs.
