Veneers are thin shells that are placed on the front surface of teeth to conceal a range of cosmetic imperfections, including chips, cracks, and stains. At Joseph T. Mormino, DDS, your veneers will be custom-designed and crafted from dental-grade porcelain in our on-site lab to blend seamlessly with your smile. To prepare your teeth for veneers, we will remove a small layer of enamel. Once your veneers have been created, you will return to our office to have them bonded in place, instantly enhancing your smile.
Cosmetic Dentistry for a Beautiful-looking Smile
At Joseph T. Mormino, DDS, we offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments to achieve your goals. Both options use peroxide-based whitening ingredients that penetrate dental enamel to break apart stains. An in-office Zoom!® whitening can brighten your smile by several shades during a single brief appointment. Those seeking the convenience of at-home whitening can receive custom trays that are lined with whitening gel and worn for 30 minutes each day for roughly two weeks.
If you are seeking to completely transform the appearance of your smile, we can combine several cosmetic treatments into a comprehensive smile makeover. Dr. Joseph Mormino will personalize your smile makeover by carefully considering your cosmetic goals and budget. Planning multiple procedures with the end result in mind allows us to achieve dramatic results while minimizing appointments, costs, and recovery times.
Dental bonding is a minimally invasive treatment that is often chosen as an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers. During a dental bonding procedure, we will apply a tooth-colored composite resin to the surface of teeth, filling in chips and cracks and hiding cosmetic blemishes. The resin is then molded to a natural appearance before being smoothed and hardened to blend discreetly with your smile. An entire dental bonding treatment can often be completed during a single appointment.
