Performing a smile makeover with cosmetic dentistry involves the following steps:
Step 1: Initial Consultation
In just a two-session visit to our office in Morristown, NJ, we can transform your smile with cosmetic dentistry to give you a total smile makeover. The entire process can take as little as four days! The process starts with an initial consultation, at which you can view your anticipated results with advanced computer imaging. Imaging allows the doctor and the patient to decide together which of the possible results would be the most beautiful and natural-looking. Because each patient is different, Dr. Ed Romano, Dr. Matthew Vaccaro, and Dr. Robert Bizzarro assess several factors that impact the outcome of the smile, including:
Face Shape – The shape of the face affects the shape of the teeth. For example, for a patient who has a round face, we can create a slimming effect by creating longer, square-shaped teeth.
Tooth Color – The color of the teeth corresponds with the age of the patient – the younger, the whiter. Our dentists suggest that patients go two to three shades lighter, but beyond that range, the color may look artificial. Also, your personal style – such as the color of the clothes you wear – can influence the selection of the shade of the porcelain veneers.
Tooth Size – Longer teeth are synonymous with youth. (Older teeth are shorter because of years of wear and tear.) To create a more youthful appearance, our dentists typically lengthen the front central teeth.
Step 2: Transforming Your Smile
Once we devise the blueprint for your smile makeover, the real reconstruction begins. We can make your smile over without surgery and often without pain, using gumline recontouring, porcelain veneers, Invisalign®, teeth whitening, or other cosmetic dentistry treatments.
Gumline recontouring is a procedure designed to help individuals enhance their smile by removing excess gum tissue to reveal more of the natural tooth enamel. “Gummy” smiles are characterized by gumlines that can appear very prominently, making teeth seem shorter than they actually are. Using advanced Diode laser technology, our cosmetic dentists can trim excess gum tissue with extreme precision to provide an improved balance and symmetry between the gums and teeth.
This is a one-time procedure that can allow patients to feel confident that their smile is no longer dominated by a prominent gumline.

Porcelain veneers are a revelatory way in which cosmetic dentists can mask chips, stains, gaps, and misalignments of the teeth for a renewed smile. Porcelain is highly durable and the custom-crafted veneer mimics the appearance of a natural tooth, allowing you to cover up common dental imperfections with a long-lasting solution that is often resistant to stains and discoloration. Your veneers will be meticulously designed for a precise fit and shaded to match your natural tooth color.
Porcelain veneers can transform your smile for beautiful results that last for decades with the proper care.

Invisalign® clear aligners can be a simple and comfortable way to straighten teeth without the inconveniences presented by traditional braces. With transparent trays that are custom-designed to fit your teeth, misalignments are progressively straightened into the desired position without obscuring your smile with metal wiring and brackets. Invisalign® can often be an effective solution to common orthodontic problems such as crooked teeth, crowding, gaps between teeth, and even certain bite issues.
Patients wear aligners full-time, but can remove their trays during meals to enjoy an unrestricted diet. This treatment typically involves much less discomfort than traditional braces and has the ability to straighten teeth in eighteen months or less, depending on your individual needs and goals. To learn whether Invisalign® can benefit you, please contact our practice today.

Stains and discoloration can make teeth look worn, aged, and unhealthy. Often, over-the-counter whitening products simply remove food from the surface of teeth, rather than penetrating the deeper layers of enamel where stains typically reside. Our practice offers a range of teeth whitening options, including Zoom!® whitening treatment – a state-of-the-art whitening technology that can dramatically lighten teeth by several shades for immediate results. We also offer patients custom whitening trays for at-home treatment that you can apply at your leisure, from the comfort of your home. With professional teeth whitening, you can achieve an attention-grabbing, luminous smile in a matter of one office visit.

Smile makeovers are completely tailored to your individual needs and goals, allowing you the ability to choose which procedures are the right fit. Drs. Romano and Vaccaro will be available to thoroughly answer any questions you may have about the various treatments we offer. After your custom smile makeover, you can enjoy beautiful results for years – if not decades – to come.
