Put the Beauty Back in Your Smile

Smiling is one of the most powerful non-verbal communication tools we have. It transcends language and projects positive emotions and influence. Despite the well-established power of a smile, many people are unhappy with their own.

If you look in the mirror and don’t like the smile you see, cosmetic dentistry can help. There are a variety of treatments and procedures designed to correct the elements that bother you, and restore beauty to your most influential expression.

Dr. Galli will work with you to understand what you dislike about your smile and explain what can be done. He will use advanced technology and techniques to make treatment faster, safer and more precise. The result is a luminous smile ready to share with the world.

Available Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments:

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are stunning in appearance and one of the strongest and most long-lasting ways to improve the smile. Veneers are thin layers or shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth to cover up cosmetic flaws. Dr. Galli can use veneers to mask stains, discoloration, chips, cracks, worn edges or abnormally shaped teeth. He can also place a set of veneers to conceal uneven spacing between the teeth. Every veneer is custom-fabricated to the exact specifications of the patient for a great fit and appearance. Veneers blend in seamlessly with the surrounding natural teeth, and are virtually impossible to detect.

 Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are similar to veneers in that they strengthen teeth and improve their appearance. Crowns are designed to rebuild the exterior enamel of teeth that are structurally weak or compromised from cracks, decay, old fillings or damage from wear. The restorations not only restore the look of a natural healthy tooth, but they strengthen the tooth and protect it from further damage. Like veneers, crowns are custom-created to match the surrounding natural teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the process of eliminating stains and discoloration for brighter teeth. Depending on the needs of the patient, this can be accomplished one of several ways. Dr. Galli performs in-office, chairside whitening for patients that want quick and dramatic results. An alternative is the customized take-home whitening tray system for patients to use at their convenience. Dr. Galli supervises treatment to minimize sensitivity and maximize results.

Smile Design

Dr. Galli will usually use digital photos and smile simulation software when a patient requires a progressive combination of treatments to achieve their dream smile. This allows the patients to see a proposed end result prior to starting treatment. Smile design is the process of identifying the elements of the smile that need to be improved, planning out appropriate solutions and performing each treatment skillfully to transform the smile. Depending on the patient’s desires, Dr. Galli may combine any of the following: the placement of porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, dental bonding, teeth whitening or Invisalign.
