Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments we provide here at Willow Grove Dentistry. A brighter smile can make you look and feel younger, and it can be a real confidence boost too! Visit our teeth whitening page for more information on our UV-free whitening system and custom take-home kits.
Composite (Tooth-Colored) Fillings
Composite fillings are primarily a restorative procedure, but they also provide many of the same benefits as cosmetic dentistry treatments. They may be small, but they’ll make a BIG difference in the appearance of your smile!
Composite fillings are made out of a mixture of glass and composite materials that blends in with the rest of your tooth, creating a more natural-looking restoration than traditional amalgam (silver) fillings. Composite fillings can be bonded directly to the surface of your tooth, which means they require less drilling and preserve more healthy tooth structure than amalgam fillings.
Porcelain Crowns, Inlays & Onlays
Porcelain crowns are an excellent cosmetic dentistry solution for teeth that are damaged, misshapen or severely decayed. Crowns can be used alone or in conjunction with fixed dental bridges and dental implants.
Like most cosmetic dentistry procedures, crowns are a relatively small procedure but their impact on your smile can be dramatic. They usually require two appointments: the first to make a mold of your damaged tooth, and the second to place and polish your custom-made restoration. Dr. Recigno takes extra care during this second appointment to ensure that your new crown perfectly matches your other healthy teeth and feels comfortable and natural in your mouth.
Like crowns and fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays are a restorative procedure with amazing cosmetic benefits for your smile. Inlays and onlays are created in a dental lab like crowns, then shipped to our office where Dr. Recigno will bond, shape and polish the restoration for a perfect fit.
With all cosmetic dentistry procedures, the final stage requires the greatest skill and the most artistic eye. Whether he’s placing a filling, crown, inlay or onlay, Dr. Recigno’s goal is to make your restorations as subtle and natural as possible.

Lumineers® Porcelain Veneers
Lumineers are a comfortable, conservative option in cosmetic dentistry that can give you the beautiful smile you've always wanted. They look and feel like natural teeth, and because they require minimal preparation, Lumineers can be applied with NO shots and NO drills. Visit our Lumineers porcelain veneers page to find out if veneers are right for you!
Snap-On Smile is an inexpensive alternative to porcelain veneers and crowns. Unlike most cosmetic dentistry treatments, Snap-On Smile is not permanent. You can use your Snap-On Smile whenever you want, then take it out to brush and floss as you normally would. Learn more on our Snap-On Smile page!
