Cosmetic Dentistry - Dr. Michael Dagostino, D.D.S.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Newsletter for October 2007

Dear Patients,

Fall is here, with the vibrant colors and cool evenings. But how can we complain? The Tribe is preparing to defeat the vaunted Red Sox for the right to play in the World Series, and our Browns are playing some really great ball.

Cosmetics are defined in Webster's Dictionary as beautifying or correcting faults in the face, hair, and teeth. Many dental clinicians tout their cosmetic prowess. Frankly, any restoration whether it be a small filling or a large bridge should be aesthetically pleasing, so cosmetic dentistry is what we do everyday.

That said, there are procedures that can enhance or correct flaws in one's smile. One of the most conservative procedures is the porcelain veneer. In this procedure a small amount of tooth structure is removed from the front and biting edge of front teeth and an impression is taken. Utilizing the impression, the lab fabricates a porcelain facing (veneer) about the thickness of a thumbnail. This facing can be any shade (color) the patient desires and can be shaped to correct rotations or fractures in the patients teeth. These veneers are extremely life-like and can have a life expectancy of over 20 years.

Should you or someone you love have any questions about porcelain veneers or cosmetic dentistry please contact our office for a complimentary evaluation.

 

Sincerely,

Michael W. Dagostino, DDS
