Did you know that smiling activates signals in your brain to release chemicals that fight stress? Research indicates people are more attracted to you when you smile; plus, smiling lifts your spirits and those of your companions. If you’ve always wanted to improve your smile, Dr. Nancy Rotroff, DDS, MAGD in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, is ready to make your dreams a reality.
Cosmetic dentistry is designed to improve the appearance of your teeth. Dr. Rotroff can perform several procedures to lighten, straighten, and better align any teeth that are stained, misshapen or cracked; in doing so, she transforms your smile.
Crowns, veneers, and teeth whitening are safe, common, minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry procedures which give you a dazzling new smile.
Crowns are an excellent option if your teeth are broken or cracked, or if Dr. Rotroff needs to cover a large filling or a dental implant. Crowns are covers--often called caps--over what is left of your existing tooth if part of it is missing due to decay or wear and tear.
Veneers are very thin coverings that go over the front and sides of your teeth and correct their color, shape, and size. They can make a dramatic difference in your smile.
Depending on the type of veneer you select, Dr. Rotroff may be able to complete your smile transformation in one visit! However, an outside lab manufactures porcelain veneers, and you return for a second visit for Dr. Rotroff to apply them. Either way, you have a great big beautiful smile!
Teeth whitening is like doing your laundry and getting all of your whites back to their original brightness. Most of us use a little bleach in our laundry load of ‘whites’ to help remove all those stains. Teeth whitening follows the same process.
Dr. Rotroff uses a peroxide bleach to remove the stains from years of lots of coffee, tea, red wine, and sodas.
She fully protects your mouth -- including your gums, lips, and cheeks -- from any of the peroxides with a gel or shield. Then she applies a solution to your teeth and lets it ‘set’ for 15-20 minutes. She repeats this procedure two more times.
The entire procedure takes only about an hour. When you leave the office, Dr. Rotroff gives you a teeth whitening package and instructions so that you can do touch-ups at home.
