Having a great smile lets you feel good as well as look good! You can achieve the smile of your dreams much more easily than you may think. Dr. Ionescu provides both the best preventive and dental health care as well as the latest cosmetic procedures. Today's smile makeovers require less time and are very affordable, so there's no reason to put off having your best smile. Come in and let us tell you how you can achieve that smile with bonding, crowns, whitening, veneers, and other options.
Crowns may be a necessary type of restoration when a tooth is broken or worn-down and a filling cannot restore it to useful functionality. Our crowns are made with the highest-quality materials so they are durable and natural looking. In fact, they look so much like a real tooth, no one will know it isn't! We also offer bridges if a tooth is completely lost or unable to be saved. They are custom made of the most advanced materials to be totally functional and to blend in to match your natural teeth.
The silver-mercury amalgam
has been the standard material used for filling restorations for a
number of years. Some practices still use it, but we use modern
composite-resin fillings that bond tightly to remaining tooth
structure and actually give it additional strength. They are made to
match the shade of the natural tooth, so it is virtually invisible
to add to the attractiveness of your smile.
Patients appreciate our use of non-metallic fillings, as they don't like the appearance of metal fillings that appear as a very noticeable black patch in light-colored teeth. They also do not bond as tightly as needed, allowing decay to eventually set in.
Veneers are a quick makeover that can take care of the unsightliness of misshapen teeth, gaps between teeth, or severe discoloration. Our veneers are thin porcelain coverings of the highest quality dental ceramic. These veneers are bonded to your natural teeth and will correct your smile to be uniform and attractive.
We create dentures that fit so well, you'll forget you're wearing them. We use technologies that allow us to secure your denture plate to eliminate the problems of slippage and movement. Dentures that fit properly will make your life easier and let you eat all the foods you enjoy without any worry.
teeth do not make for an attractive smile or facial appearance. They
can also cause difficulties in chewing and pronunciation of certain
words. Modern advancements in dental technology provide a solution
to give a complete smile once again – dental implants!
An oral surgeon inserts the titanium post, and Dr. Ionescu completes the procedure by custom-making the restoration that is placed over the post. These implants look just like your natural teeth, and function to allow you to comfortably chew every type of food. You will be very happy with your restored smile with dental implants.
The only way to get your teeth their whitest is by using professional-strength whitening. At Dentistry by Design, you can have brilliantly white teeth, without stains or darkness, in just one visit. We use Philips Zoom QuickPro™ whitening, which takes just 30 minutes to whiten your smile up to four shades. We apply it in the office, and you can brush or wipe it off in half an hour. This option is very affordable and perfect for patients who don't want the sensitivity caused by more aggressive methods.
For patients who prefer the convenience of take-home whitening trays, we use Opalescence brand whitening. With several formulations and flavors, Opalescence allows us to tailor your whitening to your goals and preferences. Ask us about our Whitening for Life program!
