Cosmetic Dentistry

The science of cosmetic dentistry has come a long way in recent years, and Dr. Epstein has made a point of staying on the cutting edge of this field. He regularly attends post-doctoral courses in scientific research in dentistry, with a particular interest in implants, emerging dental technology and cosmetic dentistry.

Smile makeovers using porcelain veneers, crowns, and natural tooth recontouring can create the smile that you have always wished for.

Porcelain veneers are thin layers of material that are permanently bonded to the tooth surface. The color, size, position, texture, and shape of teeth can be changed without causing damage to the underlying tooth.

Porcelain crowns may be necessary when the underlying teeth are too far out of position, under too much stress for veneers to tolerate, or have large existing fillings.

Sometimes, major changes in appearance can be created by simply reshaping your own teeth to eliminate chipped and worn areas, or to correct rotations or malpositions of your natural teeth. This is like "instant orthodontics."

By using the latest in dental techniques, Dr. Epstein tries to make his dental work disappear! He creates "invisible" fillings, porcelain crowns and veneers, using advanced new materials such as tooth-colored composites and computer-designed Zirconium substructures.

We do not use any silver amalgam or mercury-based filling materials. With the newest generations of restorative materials, and a keen eye to match the color and shape of your own teeth, you should never have to see your fillings, crowns, or veneers.

If straightening your teeth is your goal, we can fit you with Invisalign braces, an orthodontic treatment that uses clear plastic braces, and can help straighten your teeth without traditional metal braces.

As a finishing touch, we offer teeth whitening procedures, both in-office using the Zoom whitening system, or by providing teeth whitening trays for at-home use.
