All On 4 Dental Implants
The All On 4 Dental Implants technique uses four (4) specially designed dental implants on the upper or lower or both. The 2 dental implants towards the back are placed on an angle to take optimal advantage of the patient’s existing bone structure. The specially designed all on 4 dental implants system have the ability to support the immediate fitting of replacement teeth. This treatment is attractive to those unhappy with wearing a removable denture or those in need of full upper and/or lower restorations.
Take back your youthful appearance with Botox Cosmetic. Botox can reduce signs of aging for youthful, vibrant facial appearance. Botox offers a quick and highly effective remedy for the facial lines and wrinkles that age, stress, worry, and environmental factors can produce, this can even occur on a younger individual’s face. A BOTOX injection skin treatment will smooth frown lines on the forehead, between the eyes, and at the base of the nose. With BOTOX Cosmetic even “crow’s feet” (wrinkles at the corners of the eyes) will fade or disappear for a more youthful and vital facial cosmetic appearance.
Dental Bonding or tooth bonding uses a tooth colored resin material that is applied and cured with a special dental light, which creates a long lasting bond with the material and the tooth to restore or improve and restore a person's smile. Dental bonding is used in cosmetic dentistry to repair cracked or chipped teeth, improve the appearance of discolored teeth, close spaces between teeth, change shape of current teeth, as a cosmetic alternative to traditional fillings. Dental bonding can transform your smile in as little as one visit.
Dental emergencies are never convenient and can happen to anyone. Despite your best efforts, you may be experiencing a dental emergency because of unexpected falls, injuries from sports, and other issues.
When a dental emergency occurs, you should contact Dr. Perrone immediately.

Dr. Perrone offers numerous advanced dental procedures to address your dental concerns and help you maintain optimal oral health.
Dental Implants Including All On 4 Dental Implants (“Teeth in a Day”) have become one of the most popular, and predictable procedures for tooth replacement offered in dentistry. Dental Implants have been proven to be safe and successful for long term replacement of a single missing tooth or multiple teeth. Dental implants are an artificial tooth root (usually made of titanium) that is placed into your jaw to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. Dental implants when placed by a well trained, experienced dentist have an almost 99% success rate.
Digital radiography (digital X-rays) is the latest dental technology for dental X-rays. This type of x-rays uses an electronic sensor (instead of traditional X-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image on a laptop computer in the operatory.
This digital image can be instantly viewed and enlarged, helping Dr. Perrone and your dental hygienist detect problems easily and quickly. Digital X-rays reduce radiation by approximately 80-90% compared to traditional dental radiographs.
Dental X-rays are an essential diagnostic tool that provides valuable information not visible to the human eye. Dr. Perrone and staff use this digital information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental and oral abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan.
Problem areas can go undetected without X-rays and cause more significant issues over time.
Juvederm Dermal Fillers
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is a natural occurring sugar found in our bodies to replace and fill in what you have lost through aging. There are several products of Juvederm. They all are used to help address the facial signs of aging. Each product in the Juvederm line features different bonding and concentrations of hyaluronic acid. The different Juvederm dermal fillers are each tailored to target specific problems when injected into different areas and depths. Juvederm is an injectable, clear, smooth gel and will dissipate over time. Juvederm also usually contains Lidocaine (local anesthetic) for patient comfort.
Oral Cancer Examinations
Can Oral Cancer Be Detected Early? While difficult it can be possible. Detection relies upon a well trained dentist who has tools that can help the diagnosis. One such tool is called the Velscope enhanced oral assessement tool. The Velscope oral cancer VELscope light technology uses fluorescence of the tissues to allows detection of changes of the oral tissues in a non-evasive manner. This gives your dentist an extra view into your tissues beyond a thorough head and neck examination. These examination should be performed routinely at your dental visits. This oral cancer screening technology has saved many lives.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
We believe that Periodontal Disease Treatment should be treated in the least invasive and most cost effective way possible. Patients who are examined to have periodontal disease will be recommended for a scaling and root planing (usually with anesthesia) along with the use of Arestin. Arestin is an antibiotic placed below the gumline and into the periodontal pocket surrounding your tooth to help facilitate healing. In most periodontal disease cases this is enough but we do offer further periodontal procedures if necessary to treat and manage progressive periodontal disease.
All ceramic or all porcelain crowns provide the best natural color match than any other dental crown type (also suitable for patients with metal allergies). Porcelain crowns are an excellent choice for front teeth where we want a more cosmetic outcome. All porcelain crowns are custom made using your own custom color to match your existing teeth.
Porcelain Veneers (sometimes referred to as “Instant Orthodontics”) are super thin, custom fabricated shells of tooth colored porcelain designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your smile. Porcelain veneers are adhesively bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, width, and/or length. Versatile and very strong, porcelain veneers are used in a variety of ways to transform your smile, from complete smile makeovers to repairing a chipped tooth.
Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy Treatment is needed when tooth decay has progressed into the nerve of the tooth. Root Canal Treatment involves removal of the nerve from the center of a tooth and the dentist then proceeds to seal the roots closed. This can prevent the onset of a painful dental infection in the nerve that may spread into the bone and surrounding tissue. Root Canal Treatment can also treat an oral infection that has developed into a dental abscess.
Scaling And Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is one of the most conservative and effective procedures to treat periodontal disease before it progresses. Scaling is the removal of calculus (commonly called tartar) and plaque that attach to the tooth and root surfaces. Scaling and root planing cleans between the gums and the teeth along the roots. Scaling and root planing specifically targets the areas below the gum line (along the root) that you are unable to reach on your own.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep Apnea is a common but potentially serious condition in which breathing stops and starts up again for periods of 10-20 seconds while you sleep (this can go on 100’s times each night). Even though sleep apnea is very treatable, it very often goes undiagnosed by medical doctors.
Snap On Smile
Snap on smile is a dental appliance that is removable which is designed to snap over the existing teeth to enhance your smile. The snap on smile removable appliance is made from an extremely strong dental resin. It can be used as a short term or a long term cosmetic dentistry option. Snap on smile is a fantastic solution for many cosmetic dentistry issues. The beauty of the snap on smile is that it is a completely reversible cosmetic dentistry option.
