Cosmetic Dentistry - Veneers, Composite Fillings, White Fillings, Michael W. Dagostino, D.D.S.
Recent improvements in porcelain technology allows our office to create
beautiful, natural looking smiles without the unsightly metal show through
normally associated with porcelain crowns. These advances allow us to be
minimally invasive and still achieve optimal aesthetics. Although orthodontics
is usually the treatment of choice for crowded and/or overlapping teeth,
porcelain veneers can be used for an instantaneous extreme makeover.
At the office of Dr. Michael Dagostino, we also perform Cosmetic Soft Tissue

Over the last century dentists have placed millions of amalgam fillings
in teeth with an incredibly high success rate, however with all therapies
there are always downsides.
Amalgam (silver) fillings have mercury in them which is a known poison.
Not only is this material toxic to the people it is placed in, it is also
released as a free mercury when it is removed. Despite the fact that it
is a wonderful filling material, amalgam has too many negative properties
for my office to recommend its use.
Fortunately, many scientists recognized the shortcomings of amalgam and
pursued the development of the white colored filling material "composite".
Our office gladly removes nonserviceable unsightly amalgam fillings and
replaces them with the beautiful tooth colored composites.
