Dr. Janet S. Stopka DDS, PC and her team put the health and wellness of their patients as top priority. Our holistic dental practice focuses on the biocompatibility of everything done within the smile. We avoid the use of materials that could be damaging to teeth and provide mercury safe and mercury free dental solutions for everyone who visits our practice. At Janet S. Stopka DDS, PC, we not only address general dentistry solutions, but cosmetic treatments that can be used to dramatically enhance the appearance of the smile.
Cosmetic dentistry is a form of dentistry designed to improve the aesthetics of the smile. It may include many of the following treatment options for new and existing patients:
Invisalign is an orthodontic alternative that allows patients the opportunity to reposition their teeth and their bite with clear plastic aligner trays. Invisalign is revolutionary and gives patients the chance to avoid metal brackets and wires over their smile which may be embarrassing and make men and women feel self-conscious about the way they look.
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth and may also stabilize dentures or anchor down dental bridges. They are made of zirconium for biocompatibility. They look and function like natural teeth and can last a lifetime!
Covering imperfections of the smile can be done with the use of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are ceramic facings custom-made by our team to bond over the front of a tooth and disguise problems including permanent staining, misalignment, and breakage.
Crowns are used to provide strength and durability to an otherwise weakened tooth. These are made of ceramic and cover the entire surface of the tooth. They are bonded into place and can last many years with proper care.
A dental bridge is an alternative to dentures or dental implants. A bridge is made from crowns fused to pontics (false teeth) and is anchored down using dental implants or the surrounding teeth.
