This facility and its experienced ceramist use top-of-the-line materials that are both durable and exceptionally lifelike.

Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments. These thin shells cover the front of your teeth to conceal blemishes such as discoloration, cracks, and chips. Dr. Fusco can order your crown from a local lab if you want a quick turnaround. However, he prefers to work with an Italian facility. Their artisan ceramist employs the latest dental materials, including IPS e.max®, zirconia, and feldspathic porcelain. With his consummate skill, this ceramist can create veneers that are a remarkable match to your smile.
Dental bonding is an alternative to porcelain veneers. It offers comparable results, but, at the same time, it does not require the removal of any dental tissue. Therefore, it may be more appropriate if you have suffered dental erosion. To perform bonding, Dr. Fusco will apply composite resin to the surface of your teeth. As this material hardens, it fills in chips and can conceal other blemishes.
We offer Zoom! in-office and take-home methods of teeth whitening. Zoom! is a trusted brand that poses negligible risks and involves minimal discomfort. Both techniques use whitening gel to break down stains. During in-office treatment, your practitioner will apply the material directly to your teeth. If you choose take-home whitening, you will administer the gel via custom-made whitening trays. Both methods can whiten your smile by up to eight shades.

Dr. Fusco can combine a number of cosmetic procedure in a comprehensive smile makeover. These treatments can correct a wide assortment of cosmetic flaws, completely transforming your appearance.
There are a number of restorative procedures that can also provide significant cosmetic benefits. These include:
Fillings are a type of restoration that can strengthen and seal decayed teeth. When you receive a traditional amalgam restoration, it can eventually affect the color of your tooth. To protect the aesthetics of your smile, we provide tooth-colored composite fillings, and we can choose the shade that most closely matches your grin. Composite also has functional advantages, since it can form a more secure bond with your tooth.
Dental Caps and Crowns
A dental crown can fully cover your tooth to strengthen it or hide major aesthetic flaws. Dr. Fusco uses precise biomimetic techniques to prep your tooth for a crown. With this approach, he can preserve more of your tooth structure. He also uses advanced restorative materials that mimic your natural dental tissue. Therefore, your crown will look very natural, and it will not put undue strain on your tooth.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.” - Will Durant
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are like partial caps for your back molars. If you have significant decay, and your cavity is too large for a filling, this type of restoration can be an effective way to save the rest of your tooth. Inlays are smaller, and they will fit in the groove between your cusps; onlays extend partially down the sides of your molar. Like dental crowns, inlays and onlays are made of highly lifelike materials.
A dental bridge can replace one to three missing teeth. It is typically comprised of several crowns attached to one another to form a single unit. Like crowns, a bridge fits over your natural teeth. A bridge can restore your appearance as well as your dental function. It also helps protect your overall oral health by preventing gradual misalignment. If desired, Dr. Fusco can collaborate with a dental implants specialist to provide a permanent, fixed bridge.
