Dr. Nancy Rotroff and Dr. Gerard Wasselle have advanced training, more than 60 years combined 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.
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.
If your tooth has suffered damage, are chipped or worn, or have substantial decay, it may become sensitive or you may experience 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.
Porcelain 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.
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. Your cosmetic dentist uses composite resin in a procedure called dental bonding. Dental bonding can restore a tooth that is chipped, discolored, worn or damaged.
You have several treatment options to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth. A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth in an arch while a denture can replace all the missing teeth in an arch. A dental implant is a metal anchor that replaces the root portion of a missing tooth. The implant is surgically placed into your jawbone by your dentist or an oral surgeon. The implant is placed beneath the gum line and serves as a stable support system for replacement teeth, whether a single crown, a bridge, or an implant-supported denture. Dental implants are clearly the best option for tooth replacement due to their matchless longevity and completely natural feel and appearance. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, “implants are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth."
Dental technology has seen rapid progression in the last few decades. The invention of and advancement of technology around clear aligners has made straight teeth more accessible or all ages. Clear aligners are "clearly" better than traditional braces because there are no unsightly wire brackets to attach to your teeth or wires and rubber bands to poke and snap on you. You simply wear a comfortable medical grade plastic tray which is replaced every few weeks. Clear aligners such as Invisalign or ClearCorrect have many advantages over traditional braces used to correct malocclusion.
