There’s more to a smile than just what meets the eye. So, in order to find what cannot be seen by the naked eye, Boca Raton dentist Dr. Gerard Cuomo uses state-of-the-art microscope-enhanced dentistry. Every examination room in our dental office is equipped with a microscope that allows Dr. Cuomo and his staff to see your teeth and any developing problems at 20x magnification. You can go to the homepage of our website for an example of how this magnification works. Whether you are coming to our Boca Raton dental practice for a checkup or a more complex procedure, you can be certain you’ll receive the most precise treatment with our microscopes.
New Year, New Smile
To get 2017 off to a great start, why not resolve to take good care of your teeth and have the smile you’ve always wanted? Whether you need restorative care to rebuild or replace a tooth, or cosmetic care to transform your smile, our microscope-enhanced dentistry can make all the difference.
For example, Dr. Cuomo uses the advanced microscope to detect tooth decay at the earliest stage. Of course, the sooner we are able to find a cavity, the better. Not only in terms of the health of one tooth—tooth decay left untreated can ravage a single tooth and may even spread to others—but also for you. Repairing a small cavity with a tooth-colored filling is much easier on you and your wallet than a larger cavity that may require more extensive treatment, such as a dental crown.
Similarly, microscope enhanced dentistry can be used to detect the smallest change in soft tissue that may be a sign of oral cancer. Unfortunately, many instances of oral cancer are not detected until a later stage when treatment is more invasive and survival more unpredictable. However, when an oral cancer screening with a microscope is conducted during each of your regular dental checkups every six months, the likelihood of survival increases dramatically.
The Look of Your Smile
In addition to the health of your teeth and mouth, 33486 dentist Dr. Cuomo is dedicated to the beautiful appearance of your smile. With this in mind, we offer a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures. With Zoom! Teeth Whitening, you can have a smile that is up to 14 shades whiter. A take-home whitening kit can help to ensure the continued whiteness of your smile.
Cosmetic bonding, all-ceramic restorations and porcelain veneers are other cosmetic dentistry procedures offered to transform your smile when you have teeth that are structurally damaged. Whether teeth are chipped, broken, cracked or misshaped, Dr. Cuomo can precisely restore your tooth’s natural appearance for a more attractive smile.
