One’s smile is much like a walking, talking business card. It tells people a lot about you and psychology has actually proven that a smile is one of the first things we notice about other people. That’s why just about everyone wants their teeth to look their absolute best. However, years of drinking coffee and/or red wine, or of smoking tobacco, can damage, stain, or chip our teeth. At the same time, some are born with dental issues such as gap in our teeth, misaligned or asymmetric smiles. Luckily, if you live in Fort Lauderdale, Dr. Jonathan Cook, cosmetic dentist, can help you deal with all those issues, as well as with numerous others.

If years and years of wear and tear, of drinking soda, wine, and coffee, or of using tobacco have stained or discolored your teeth, then you should definitely consider our teeth whitening procedure. The treatment is quick, results are instant and – the best part – they are for the long-term. Our teeth whitening process can help whiten your teeth by 8 shades, or by as many you want them whitened, in order to enjoy the most beautiful and brightest smile you’ve ever had.
Porcelain Dental Veneers
Are your teeth chipped, stained, or discolored? Are they misaligned or is there a gap in your smile? Porcelain dental veneers are the most durable, efficient, and natural solution you can implement to correct a very wide range of dental issues. The procedure involves taking an impression of your teeth, after which our lab experts create a custom-made mold. Then, based on that mold, Dr. Jonathan Cook creates a tailored porcelain veneer, which will fit your teeth perfectly and blend in with your natural smile. The porcelain shells are affixed to your teeth with cement-like solution in order to cover up any imperfections. Then, they are tinted to match the natural color of your teeth – no one will be able to tell the difference! And, what’s more, most patients who come in for porcelain dental veneers go on to enjoy them for the rest of their lives.
Do you want to straighten your teeth, in order to correct misalignment issues and turn your smile into the most beautiful one yet? You could opt to wear traditional metal braces, but they are often cumbersome and difficult to wear, not to mention the fact that they are not at all esthetically pleasing. Luckily, today Dr. Jonathan Cook can help you benefit from a discreet and modern type of teeth aligner: the innovative Invisalign ® system. Invisalign ® is made of clear plastic, which means they can go completely unnoticed. They can be removed during meals or for dental hygiene purposes. They are tailor-made for each wearer, so that they fit your teeth perfectly. You get to wear a set of Invisalign ® aligners for two weeks, then remove and substitute it for the next one and, in the meantime, your teeth become gradually straighter. Aside from the fact that they are less invasive and more comfortable to wear than traditional braces, Invisalign ® clear teeth aligners have also been known to produce impressive results in less time!
Remember the days when all fillings had to be made out of metallic alloys and were easily noticeable? These days are gone, now that you, too, can get fillings whose color perfectly matches the natural one of your teeth. Most dental experts and patients, too, prefer this innovative method, which uses raisin fillings. They are designed to be durable, to last longer and to look better. Forget about frequent trips to your dentist to have them replaced. Tooth-colored fillings will cover up your cavities for a longer time than metallic ones – and you can even choose them in order to replace your older fillings.
What kind of treatment can you opt for, if you feel your smile is nearly perfect, yet could use some corrective dental work? For cracks, chips, spacing, and misalignment problems with your smile, Dr. Jonathan Cook can provide dental bonding treatment. The procedure involves the use of a resin formula, whose color matches that of your smile, and which has been designed for long-term results. The resin is applied to the damaged tooth, molded for a perfect fit, then hardened under low-heat light. It is finally sanded, so that the end-result looks bright, smooth, and natural. It is the go-to solution when you’ve got gaps in your teeth, but do not necessarily need an orthodontic intervention.
