Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A



What is cosmetic dentistry? 

Finding the best cosmetic dentist in Fort Lauderdale to help you achieve the new smile you desire is important. Dr. Nancy Rotroff and Dr. Gerard Wasselle have advanced training, years of experience, and a list of satisfied clientele that set them apart. Our doctors can correct numerous tooth imperfections to improve your smile with natural-looking restorations. Whether your teeth are stained, misshapen, cracked, chipped, or misaligned, our doctors offer a wide variety of treatment options. Crowns, veneers, teeth whitening, and composite fillings are safe, common, minimally-invasive procedures your Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentist can use to help you achieve the smile you desire.


How can crowns make a difference in my smile? 

If your tooth has suffered damage or substantial decay, it may become sensitive or become a source of pain. Crowns reinforce and restore the structural integrity of your tooth while protecting the remaining tooth structure. When root canal treatment is needed, crowns are placed on teeth following the root canal to strengthen the tooth structure and restore the aesthetics of the damaged or decayed tooth. Dental crowns have the dual benefit of both supporting the underlying tooth structure as well as enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. At Excellence in Dentistry, our doctors only use the highest quality materials and dental labs to create restorations that are strong, natural-looking and beautiful.


How can veneers make a difference in how my teeth look? 

Veneers are very thin coverings that are placed over teeth to conceal a number of cosmetic issues including stained, misaligned, misshaped, or chipped teeth. They can be used to close gaps between teeth. Veneers achieve a natural-looking restoration that can make a dramatic difference in your smile. As with dental crowns, our doctors only use the highest quality restorations for your veneers so that your smile is beautifully natural-looking.


What is involved in teeth whitening? 

Our teeth are constantly exposed to foods and beverages, and possibly tobacco, which can lead to staining. Teeth whitening is one of the fastest treatments to brighten the shade of your teeth and enhance the appearance of your smile. The professional grade bleaching agents used in office remove stains and can lighten your teeth several shades with results you can see after your first treatment. Treatment sessions typically take about an hour. When you leave the office, you are given a teeth whitening package and instructions so you can do touch-ups at home.


How can composite fillings change my smile? 

Composite Fillings are made from a composite resin material and provide a tooth-colored filling restoration. They can be used both as a restorative as well as a cosmetic treatment option. If you dislike your unsightly silver restorations, replacing them with composite restorations might be an option for you. Composite resin is used not only for fillings; it can also be used to treat other problems including repairing chipped or broken tooth and strengthening worn teeth. Dental bonding is when your dentist uses composite resin material to restore a tooth that is chipped, discolored, or damaged.
