Cosmetic dentistry offers people a new lease on life. It gives you the opportunity to address aesthetics that go far beyond general dentistry services. You want a healthy smile, but you want it to look good too. Dr. David B. Epstein loves the craft of cosmetic dentistry, and how it can help shape someone’s happiness and quality of life. Cosmetic dentistry offers you a new level of oral hygiene, oral health and a beautiful smile. While many of the traditional cosmetic dentistry services are offered here, Dr. Epstein and his team specialize in dental implant restoration and sleep apnea treatment with oral appliance therapy.
— Usually made of titanium, an implant is used to replace the root portion of a missing tooth. This implant is matched with a crown to create a natural-looking replacement for the entire tooth, and is a multi-step process for the patient and the dental team that creates this custom-fit service. Implants can be matched with a crown, bridge, or denture, and Dr. Epstein works closely with a team during the restoration process to create something specifically for you.
Oral Sleep Appliances
— We create custom night guards to treat teeth grinding, TMJ disorders, and we also make custom appliances to aid with sleep apnea. As one of the only Dream Sleep certified doctors within 50 miles, we screen for sleep apnea and provide home sleep testing. If it is determined that you suffer from sleep apnea, like millions of others, we make you a custom oral sleep appliance that can treat it. Any adjustments to the appliance can be made in-office by Dr. Epstein and his staff.
— This is an inexpensive procedure that gives a patient a fresh, brighter smile. There are many products and methods from which to choose. Dr. Epstein and his staff can give you a more in-depth overview of the different products offered and ways to attain those pearly whites. Patients have the choice of whitening in-office, or a structured, home-based whitening process.
Composite Bonding and Fillings
— A tooth-colored composite resin is attached to the tooth, improving the appearance of chipped and damaged teeth. Tooth-colored fillings usually require less tooth preparation for the procedure than mercury fillings, and you no longer have to worry about the unsightly metal fillings that are obvious to the world that you once had a cavity.
Porcelain and Composite Veneers
— Veneers play a huge part in giving patients’ smiles a makeover. This procedure can mask a variety of dental imperfections, such as discoloration, chipped teeth, crooked teeth, gaps between teeth and much more. It has become more popular over the past decade or so, and you would be surprised at how many people you know actually have veneers.
— Crowns give patients a natural-looking alternative to their heavily damaged teeth. Crowns replace more of the natural tooth structure than veneers do, and require more preparation time in the chair to be performed. They repair weakened, cracked, decayed and broken teeth, while bridges are used to splint together multiple crowned teeth to replace missing teeth.
— A bridge is a godsend for those patients that have a missing tooth either from decay, or an accidental tooth loss caused by trauma to the mouth. The missing tooth can be replaced with bridgework, as it is attached to the other surrounding crowned teeth remaining in the mouth.
— Teeth that are too damaged to save will be taken out and can be replaced with dental implants, bridges, or dentures if needed.
Dentures and Partial Dentures
— Dentures are used to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. Unlike crowns, bridges and implants, dentures are removable.
