Types of Cosmetic Dental Services for Your Smile in Philadelphia, PA area

For patients near Philadelphia, PA, Dr. David Spilkia offers comprehensive general, cosmetic, and restorative dental services to improve the health of your mouth. Your smile is linked to your self-esteem, and having a winning smile boosts your confidence and improves your personal and professional relationships. Cosmetic dentistry gives patients options for smile enhancement. David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry offers various types of cosmetic dental services for your smile, including teeth whitening, veneers, orthodontics, bonding, and more.

What is cosmetic dental care?

Cosmetic dentistry is the dental field that focuses on enhancing the smile’s appearance, which can mean improving the teeth and/or gums. The patient’s needs, goals, and the desired procedures determine whether material is added or removed from the teeth or gums, such as porcelain veneers or cosmetic bonding. The color, shape, and/or size of the teeth may also be altered. Although the main goal of cosmetic dental services is to improve the aesthetic appeal, in many cases, the health and functions of the smile are also improved with treatment. Cosmetic dental care complements the overall health of the mouth.

Cosmetic dentistry is an effective choice for dramatic smile enhancement. Each treatment can produce a significant change in the smile’s physical appearance and boost the patient’s self-esteem. These services often include procedures to address tooth color, replace missing or damaged teeth, or correct the size or shape of the teeth.

Common cosmetic services

The desire to change your smile is a personal choice. Chipped, uneven, discolored, or missing teeth can lead to embarrassment or hidden smiles. Cosmetic dentistry has greatly increased in popularity in recent years as more options than ever are available. Patients want white, straight, even smiles. Enhancing the smile is a simple way to improve an individual’s physical appearance and boost self-esteem. Many cosmetic procedures give patients instant gratification.

Dr. Spilkia understands the importance of a stunning smile. He offers a comprehensive range of cosmetic procedures for smile enhancement. These services include the following:

  • Tooth-colored fillings and dental bonding
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental crowns and bridges
  • Veneers
  • Dental implants
  • Invisalign tooth straightening
  • Gum recontouring

Tooth discoloration is one of the most common aesthetic complaints. The foods and drinks we consume and the lifestyle choices we make impact our teeth. Coffee, wine, tea, and tobacco stain the teeth. Many patients choose professional teeth whitening. This is a safe, popular method for dramatically brightening the smile. Although over-the-counter products are readily available, professional dental treatments utilize higher quality whitening agents and produce brighter smiles in a shorter period of time.

Dr. Spilkia uses the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System, which is a tried and true method of professional whitening. Not only does this whitening system address the typical discoloration caused by foods, drinks, tobacco, or age, but stains from tetracycline antibiotics are addressed as well. No other system can improve this type of stain. In-office treatments produce significantly whiter teeth after a single dental appointment.

Dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, and dental implants repair and restore the teeth. As fixed restorations, they improve the function, form, and aesthetic appearance of the smile.

  • The function of the bite is improved
  • They allow routine movements such as eating and speaking to occur as normal
  • The adjacent teeth remain in place without shifting
  • The patient can brush and floss better with fewer hidden, hard-to-reach areas where bacteria can accumulate
  • Restorations improve the smile’s appearance
  • The use of porcelain or tooth-colored materials allows Dr. Spilkia to match the adjacent teeth in size, shape, and color, which produces a natural, pleasing result

Porcelain veneers are another option to change the appearance of teeth. Ultra-thin porcelain shells are bonded to the teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can be used to alter misshapen, crooked, stained, uneven, or poorly spaced teeth. They may be used to correct a single tooth or for a smile makeover on an entire set of teeth. The end result is a more uniform, beautiful smile!

    It's my first time giving a star rating to a dentist but I did like this one. I've been searching for a dentist and found the cleaning to be painful and some locations as they tend to just rip your gums apart. I'd recommend this office because the ladies here treat you like a family member and the place is immaculate (however one spells immaculalte - english isn't my major). anyway, I travel 4-hours from Maryland to Philadelphia just to see this dentist because he's just that good. I'm not kidding. If there were ten stars, then he'd get all ten...anyway before I ramble on and on, I've got to drive back to Maryland so just drop by and the ladies here will help. p.s. they are not hard on the eyes either.

    I have never reviewed a medical professional before, but Dr. David Spilkia is the best cosmetic dentist here in Philadelphia, PA ;( and I've had at least 10 dentists in my lifetime). I've been with him for about 1.5 years now so I feel comfortable recommending him.

    Thank you Dr. Spilkia for your caring professional services.In my last visit I spent almost 3 hours as you preformed a root canal and made my new crown. I would never have believed a person could actually nap through a root canal!

    I may be a little biased since Dr Spilkia is a close friend of mine; however he is the best dentist here in Philadelphia, PA I've ever had. I grew up with a phobia of dentists, but when he became a dentist many years ago, my fears quickly subsided thanks to his chair side manner. He has you feeling comfortable from the minute you step in. He is the only dentist I know of who actually phones you the day following major dental work to see how you're doing. Aside from being a great dentist, he really cares.
