Dr Sherif Gabr and the staff at Modern Dentistry of New England understand the importance of your smile. It’s the first thing people notice when they meet you, and beyond that, the condition of your smile has a direct effect on your self image and confidence. When your smile sparkles, so do you. Because a person’s smile is so important, Dr. Gabr and his staff specialize in several aspects of cosmetic dentistry. It’s an integral part of Dr. Gabr’s practice, and one of the many ways he serves his patients.

One of the services offered by Dr. Gabr is cosmetic dental bonding. Our teeth can sustain chips, cracks and stains. With cosmetic dental bonding, you can leave those problems in the past. Dr. Gabr will very carefully shape your tooth before applying a composite resin to it. Before it dries, the doctor can mold the resin into whatever shape is necessary to restore the look of your tooth, and close any gaps in your smile. The process is painless, can be done in a single visit, and the color can be matched to the rest of your teeth. If you feel uncomfortable about looking in the mirror because of your teeth, dental bonding may be a great option for you.

Dr. Gabr is also skilled in the art of cosmetic gum recontouring. You may have uneven gums, or gums that cover too much of your teeth. To correct this, Dr. Gabr will remove small portions of the excess gum tissue to give you a brighter smile. This procedure can also be used when a patient is experiencing receding gums. Gum recontouring is one of the periodontal services we provide. We can help you address a number of issues with your gums.

Our office is also proud to to offer Invisalign® treatments to our patients. Invisalign is a way to address the imperfections in your smile without the hardware and that comes with traditional braces. It’s the perfect alternative for adults who would like to straighten their teeth while still maintaining a professional appearance. In the Invisalign process, Dr. Gabr will use impressions of your teeth to create a series of clear aligners for you to wear. Over time, these aligners will gradually move your teeth into their proper positions. Because Invisalign appliances are lightweight and clear, most people will not even know that you are wearing them, and they are easy to remove when you need to eat.

Cosmetic dentistry is just a part of what we do at Modern Dentistry of New England. We also offer wisdom tooth extraction, root canals, and dentures, among other services. In addition to our cosmetic and periodontal services, we can take care of your regular exams and cleanings. We’re proud to provide dental care for children and adults with a variety of needs.
