Sheryl is a nurse and long time resident of Wilmington. She was bothered by how her lateral incisors flared outward and her central incisors retruded. She had considered traditional braces but did not want to go through full-scale treatment since she was happy with the alignment of her other teeth. Sheryl wanted a quick and affordable way to improve her smile. Six Months Smiles was a perfect solution. Treatment took just four months to complete!
Rita, a stay-at-home mom from Burlington, MA, felt unhappy with the spacing between her front teeth. She had considered veneers and possibly bonding to close the space; however, it would have resulted in wide front teeth, which would be disproportionate to her other front teeth, making them look abnormal. Using Six Month Smiles, this spacing was easily treated in just four months.
Salma, a 28-year-old nurse from Woburn, MA, was unhappy with the crowding in her upper and lower teeth. She avoided smiling because she was self-conscious about her appearance. Six Month Smiles allowed us to improve her smile in nine months, a fantastic time period compared to traditional braces, which would have taken two years.
Cathy, a nurse from Tewksbury, MA, had braces when she was a teenager. Her teeth shifted over the years, and she did not like the flaring of her upper teeth. Plus, the crowding of her lower teeth was making them harder to keep clean. The thought of wearing braces again was not appealing to her, so she opted to use Invisalign. This allowed her to invisibly straighten her teeth and took only five months to complete.
Amy, a Reading, MA resident and an appointment scheduler at local hospital, never wanted braces until she was an adult. Now that she works with the public, she was ready to improve her smile. The ability to correct her smile unnoticed using Invisalign made it the perfect treatment option. Since Invisalign aligners are clear and extremely comfortable, she was able to speak and interact with patients with confidence.
We offer different options for whitening based on your situation. In this case, custom whitening trays were used to provide maximum time for concentrated whitening gel to clean away stains from the tooth. Results become apparent in as little as two weeks. Unlike over-the-counter products, our prescription strength gel can safely whiten your teeth without affecting existing fillings or using dangerous abrasives that wear away enamel.
Kathie lives in San Francisco and visits family in North Reading, MA. She has tried all kinds of whitening gels to improve the appearance of her gray, stained teeth, caused by the antibiotic tetracycline. Unfortunately, gray stains like these are the most difficult teeth to whiten. We used the Deep Bleaching Method developed by Dr. Rod Kurty, and she was totally amazed at her results. This method can be used on teeth that have been resistant to previous attempts at whitening.

Alan is a long-time resident of Tewksbury, MA and is active in the community. He was concerned about his jagged and misaligned teeth, which didn't show when he smiled. All-ceramic crowns were made, which gave him the confidence to smile again. Since there is no metal, he does not have to worry about the gray color of traditional porcelain metal crowns showing.
George is a dentist from Arlington, MA who wanted a cosmetic makeover of his front teeth. Dr. Caselle placed ceramic crowns, fixing the misaligned teeth, improving the shade, and replacing old, stained fillings that caused a non-uniform color.
Jane is a school teacher from Andover, MA who decided she wanted to get rid of her old silver amalgam fillings. She didn't like the gray color and was concerned that these fillings contained mercury. The fillings were replaced with ceramic inlays and a resin filling, resulting in natural-looking teeth.
Paul, a utility worker from Wilmington, MA, had old bonding on his front tooth for years. He was unhappy with the discoloration and wanted something that would provide long-term color stability. We placed a ceramic veneer, made while he waited in the office. Using CEREC, a CAD/CAM system, allows us to make veneers, crowns, and ceramic fillings chairside. You no longer need to get a temporary crown and wait three weeks for a crown or veneer to come back from the lab. Restorations can be customized to match your existing teeth.
