Dentistry Services For You

Whether your smile needs a makeover or your child needs a routine cleaning, chances are we can help. At Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, our goal is to provide top-quality care using up-to-date technology and practices, while providing a comfortable environment for all patients. Our Raleigh cosmetic dentists, Drs. Raymond Ferri and Patrick Lawrence, are experienced in a variety of treatments including Steel Bite Pro that will leave your teeth looking and feeling their best.

Services for All Ages

No matter your age, a healthy smile can improve your well-being and confidence. For younger patients, we strive to create a reassuring experience while helping instill positive dental habits. During regular cleanings, we offer fluoride treatments and sealants, both of which are completely painless and will protect your child’s teeth against the early stages of decay.

For adolescents and young adults who are involved in athletics, especially contact sports, we offer customized mouth guards to protect the teeth. Patients who suffer from constant teeth grinding, or bruxism, may also benefit from a professionally crafted mouthguard.

Even for patients who establish good hygiene at an early age, diseases like gingivitis and tooth decay are possible. We provide a selection of treatment plans to combat these issues in a way that is most appropriate for you.

Restorative Treatments

During a visit, we will evaluate the health of your teeth and gums for any signs of disease. To fight gum disease, we may recommend an at-home treatment plan or, for more advanced cases of gingivitis, deep cleanings, or antibiotics. Similarly, we can catch tooth decay in its earlier stages using minimally invasive X-ray imaging and intraoral cameras. If cavities require dental fillings, a number of treatment options are available.

Tooth-colored fillings restore the health and strength of the teeth in a discreet way, using high-quality composite resin or porcelain. Inlays and Onlays can also replace areas of damaged teeth without altering their appearance.

Cosmetic Dentistry

In addition to your health, we want you to leave our office with rejuvenated confidence in your smile. Whether you want your teeth whiter, straighter, or more evenly shaped, you can benefit from our cosmetic procedures.

Porcelain veneers are applied to the front surface of the teeth, masking any flaws in the process. They can also be used to give your teeth a straighter appearance.

For more significant damage, dental crowns can cap teeth suffering from large chips or decay. Like veneers, crowns are made of porcelain, meaning they will match your tooth’s natural tooth color and reflective properties.

Available Technology

Many of our services are aided by the latest technology to achieve the highest level of results. This can be seen in everyday exams and individual procedures:

Imaging: To assist in cavity detection, our DEXIS ® digital X-ray system provides clear, detailed imaging while reducing exposure to radiation by up to 90 percent. This may be used in tandem with an intraoral camera, which can capture pictures of a patient’s teeth and instantly present them via a computer screen.

The injection’s volume and flow rate is controlled by a computer, minimizing pain from the very start.
