Dr. Carnicella emphasizes the aesthetic aspect in ALL their work because they know that when your smile looks good, you feel good!

Modern smile makeovers are so easy (and affordable!) that there’s simply no reason why you can’t have the perfectly beautiful, natural-looking smile you’ve always wanted. Ask us what veneers, crowns, bonding, and whitening can do for YOUR smile!

Teeth Whitening – Dazzling Results!

It’s natural to want brighter teeth! Whiter teeth are healthier looking, and easier to achieve than most people think. The only way to get your teeth their whitest is by using a professionally supervised bleaching process.

We offers custom whitening trays, made in our own lab. You will receive supplies and instructions and you finish the procedure at home. This technique is safe and effective. Results occur within 1 – 14 days.

No Mercury! No Metals! No Kidding!

For years, the silver-mercury amalgam was the standard filling material used in dental practices, and many practices still use it. While they are a reasonable restoration, amalgams have certain shortcomings. Metal does not bond well to teeth, so decay can and does eventually leak into the tooth. But the biggest reason many of our patients are choosing the white bonded fillings has to do with the way they look. Many people just don’t want an ugly black plug in their teeth. We offer modern, state-of-the-art restorations that are a natural-looking white, contain no metals, and can actually strengthen your teeth. They also bond very tightly with the healthy part of the tooth so there is much less chance of decay in the future.

Family Dentistry

We strive to make children of all ages feel at ease and enjoy themselves, so bring the whole family along! You can rest assured your child will receive the latest advancements in children’s dentistry, delivered with caring, thoughtfulness, and compassion.

We encourage the proper dental care habits in children and enjoy teaching them how to keep their teeth healthy for a lifetime. We look forward to seeing them for their first dental visit when they’re 2-3 years old and watching them grow year after year. Our office is a fun and relaxed place that children love to visit. We have a great children’s play area complete with video games to entertain our young patients and make them feel at home

BOTOX®

Are wrinkles, sagging skin, and facial lines starting to bring you down?

Now you can rejuvenate your skin and turn back the clock with Botox®!

As you age, your skin loses tone, volume, and elasticity. Everyday actions such as laughing, smiling, and frowning can create deep facial creases and lines, making you appear older and tired. Now we have treatment options to minimize lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. With Botox® you can take years off your face in just a short treatment session!

Botox® is a nonsurgical treatment that smoothes moderate to severe worry lines, crow’s feet, and laugh lines. Made of purified protein, this FDA-approved treatment effectively reduces the activity of the muscles that cause aging facial lines. Botox® is administered through quick and comfortable injections, and results last up to four months!

Why do patients choose Botox®?

Painless Procedure

The number one question that patients ask us about skin rejuvenating treatments is “does it hurt?” We’re happy to report that Botox® treatments are easy and painless. Dr. Carnicella utilizes gentle injection techniques to ensure your comfort.

Relieves TMJ and Headaches

When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, BOTOX® relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. Botox® has been approved for treating headaches that are present more than 15 days per month. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, BOTOX® can even minimize lock jaw.

Erase Years in Just Minutes!

Fresher, younger-looking skin may be closer than you think! Botox® treatments can make you look ten years younger, and you won’t have to suffer through an extensive recovery period post-procedure. You can get the treatment you want and get on with your life—enjoying younger-looking skin right away.

Natural Results

Dr. Carnicella achieves beautiful, natural-looking results using Botox®. You’ll benefit from her conservative approach and knowledge of facial nerve pathways, muscles, and blood vessels—she erases wrinkles and plumps skin without the dreaded “freeze face” effect.

Digital Imaging

Introducing digital imaging, available at our practice. With this technology, an image is taken of your mouth with a digital sensor and downloaded into our computer, where it is immediately available. This method results in 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays. No more waiting for images to develop and no more chemical waste to pollute the environment.

Oral Cancer Screening

Did you know that one American dies every hour from oral cancer? And the mortality rate has remained virtually unchanged for 40 years? The good news is that there’s a 90% cure rate if it’s detected early. We are very pleased to provide one of the most effective oral cancer screenings available today. VELscope™ is the newest FDA-approved oral cancer screening system. We perform the exam using the specially designed light. Any suspicious tissue is immediately and easily visible. This screening could literally save your life!

Laser Cavity Treatment

Have you ever had a dentist find a cavity and place a large filling, and wondered why the filling is so large if the cavity wasn’t there just six months before? The cavity was there six months before – it just wasn’t big enough to show on X-rays, and it wasn’t visible to the dentist yet. The Laser Scanner can find cavities years earlier, when the small cavity can be removed and repaired with a small invisible bonded filling. Sometimes patients complain of tooth sensitivity, or mild to severe pain, yet X-rays and examination cannot pinpoint the source. The laser scanner can detect previously undetected decay and, once identified, allow us to remove the discomfort and leave you with a healthy smile

Periodontal Disease Treatment

Bleeding gums? Chronic bad breath? Receding gums?

We can help!

Carnicella & Associates Periodontal Disease Treatment

If you have any of these symptoms you very likely have periodontal (gum) disease. The American Dental Association estimates that 90% of all adults between the ages of 33 and 45 have some form of gum disease.

Migraine & Tension Headache Treatment

Do You Regularly Suffer From Tension or Even Migraine Headaches?

You may have heard Diane Sawyer discuss this on Good Morning America, or maybe you’ve seen this in People magazine. The FDA approved a drug-free treatment for the prevention of migraine and tension headaches. This little miracle is called the NTI™ device, and it’s now available in our practice. It works by relaxing the muscles under the scalp and preventing the majority of headaches. Clinical trials showed that 82% of migraine sufferers achieved a 77% reduction in migraine events. It’s painless, fast, and NOT expensive. If you experience migraines or know someone who does then be sure to ask us about this exciting new treatment.

Sleep Apnea

Are you or a loved one unable to get a good night’s sleep because of snoring or sleep apnea? We have a simple, effective way to treat not only snoring but sleep apnea that is an alternative to the bulky CPAP machine.

Fast Braces

Moving Teeth, Fast, and Safe

The Fastbraces® Technology patented bracket design uses unique, triangular shaped braces that allow for the use of just one super-elastic nickel-titanium wire during the treatment process. This brace technology works on an entirely different mechanical principle altogether. Historically, old braces would move the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year.

Fastbraces® Technology allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the beginning of treatment by torquing them from the very first appointment. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases, just a few months. It has been developed and tested over the past 20 years and is now becoming available in countries around the world . Fastbraces® Technology is fast, safe, easy and affordable treatment. With the patented triangular design of the braces, cutting edge techniques and a special heat-activated wire, this new technology is revolutionizing the field of orthodontics.

Fantastic Results

Quick Treatment
The biggest question for a child who may need braces would probably be “how quickly can I get them off?” While there are no miracle shortcuts in orthodontics, Fastbraces® Technology is different by design which allows for typically treatment time of one year instead of two. Some patients even see results in as little as 3 months! The old braces are usually square in shape and typically move the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year, thus requiring two years of treatment time. The patented triangular bracket in the Fastbraces® Technology gently allows for movement of the crown and the root of the teeth at the same time with no extra risk for the patient.

Minimal Discomfort
University Research has shown that Fastbraces® Technology had “lower sensitivity”, “a clear-cut reduction in sliding friction” and “the lowest mean frictional forces” compared to the old braces systems. through university research. Fastbraces® Technology typically works with just one orthodontic wire from start to finish, whereas old braces usually require a series of wires and tightening procedures. Fastbraces® Technology uses a special square super-elastic nickel-titanium wire which is activated by the heat of the mouth. This dynamic wire helps upright the whole tooth using the natural temperature of the mouth in just one stage, safely and comfortably.

Braces for Kids

Misaligned teeth or a dysfunctional bite can be a problem for some children. While this can complicate their oral hygiene, the additional pressures of being a kid can affect their day to day mood, attitude and self-confidence. Fortunately, with the Fastbraces® Technology, children can receive quick orthodontic treatment with minimum discomfort.

Braces for Adults

Hearing the words “you need braces” can send some people into a battle of insecurity.  You’re trying to be a grown-up, but you feel like a teenager again.  When they are wearing adult braces, some people are afraid to speak up during a business meeting or enjoy the adventure of a first date. As frightening as it may be, Fastbraces® Technology could be the fastest, most affordable and best alternative for you and can give you the advantage of a quick, permanent solution.

Laser Perio Therapy

Avoid Gum Surgery with New Laser Treatment

We are licensed to practice Laser Periodontal Therapy™, a minimally invasive method of treating gum disease. LPT is the only laser-assisted procedure certified by the FDA for treatment of periodontitis or gum disease. You may have heard about or experienced the remarkable results from laser treatments for vision correction and other medical procedures. Now that same technology is revolutionizing dentistry! Healing and recovery are generally faster and more comfortable following LPT than traditional gum surgery. If you’ve been told you need gum surgery, but have been putting it off, let us show you how easy your treatment can be.

Dental Implant Restoration

Dental Implant Restoration for a Perfect Smile

Dental implants are the ideal way to replace lost teeth. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums, dental implants are placed under the gums. The “tooth” placed on an implant appears life-like, because it comes through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth!

Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that are just like the real deal! Implants are solid enough to eat any food, don’t move when you talk, and don’t need to be removed at night.

Snap-On Smile
Snap-On Smile® is a non-invasive cosmetic, removable full or partial arch that literally snaps right over the patient’s existing dentition without impinging on the gingival tissue or covering the palate. Entirely tooth-borne, no adhesives are required and patients are free to eat, drink and function normally without obstruction. Many dentists regard temporization as one of the most difficult aspects of full-mouth restoration. Snap-On Smile is not only an excellent provisional, it also provides patients exceptional aesthetics. It can last for years, yet is affordable enough to be temporary. For patients who are hesitant to commit to more involved restoration treatments, Snap-On Smile offers the experience of living with better function and superior aesthetics.
