Metal-Free Dental Restorations
A blend of cosmetic and restorative dentistry, metal-free restorations repair the form and function of the teeth that show when you smile. A porcelain or ceramic crown, bridge, inlay, or onlay fixes your smile beautifully. Metal-free restorations are also a good solution for patients who have metal sensitivities or allergies.
Dental porcelain or ceramic is customized to match the shade of your tooth enamel, so no one will be able to tell you have had any work done once your restoration is complete. In fact, after a little while, you may forget about it, too. Protect your smile health and your new restoration with regular brushing and flossing, and invest in a custom-fitted mouthguard or nightguard if you play contact sports or grind your teeth at night.
Direct Tooth Bonding
With direct bonding, your dentist repairs small cosmetic flaws in the teeth that show when you smile using biocompatible a composite resin shaded to match the precise color of your tooth enamel. Direct bonding corrects minor to moderate dental imperfections, including chips, cracks, broken teeth, slight gaps between teeth, stains, and other flaws that keep your smile from looking less than its best.
To correct your teeth with this method, your dentist applies composite resin to the surface of the tooth and then sculpts it into its most pleasing shape. A curing light is applied to the composite resin, and it has fully set within minutes. Direct bonding can stay intact for many years, but it is more likely to absorb colors from what you eat and drink. Stay away from tobacco and drink coffee or dark sodas from a straw.
Professional teeth whitening is a wonderful way to quickly rejuvenate your smile. Liscio Dental offers in-office and at-home whitening so you can brighten your smile at the pace that suits your lifestyle best. In-office Zoom! Whitening can whiten teeth by up to eight shades in less than one hour. Take-home treatments reveal the same dazzling results, but over the period of about two weeks.
Are your teeth stained? Dr. Liscio can give you bright, beautiful teeth in one visit. Choose from highly effective home whitening or Zoom! in-office teeth whitening. Professional home whitening kits come with a custom-fitted mouthpiece to hold the potent bleaching gel against tooth enamel, and keep saliva out for optimal results. Wear your trays as directed, usually a few hours a night for about two weeks.
Zoom! Whitening is a one-visit procedure that can erase years of built-up stains in about one hour. A strong, safe bleaching gel is placed directly on teeth, then activated with a soft light. If you’re attending a wedding, reunion, or interview soon, Zoom! Whitening will provide fast, effective results.
Home whitening results match those achieved with in-office Zoom! And whether you choose to whiten at home or in our Colchester dental office, you can use your home whitening kit to touch-up your teeth any time.
As a patient of Liscio Dental, you will receive restorative dental care that looks, feels, and functions wonderfully.

Porcelain Veneers & Lumineers
Porcelain veneers and Lumineers are two options for covering up tooth imperfections to remake the appearance of your smile. Veneers work for any number of cosmetic imperfections, and are placed in just one to two visits to our office. Cared for properly, veneers and Lumineers can last for a decade or more.
Cosmetic Dental Restorations
We provide comprehensive general dental services, including dental restorations with a concentration on fit, function, and appearance. Dr. Liscio uses biocompatible dental materials that look natural for tooth-colored fillings and crowns. He can also replace metal fillings with composites after safe amalgam removal.
Our respected dental lab is adept at creating lifelike, comfortable prosthetics like bridges, partials, dentures, and implant crowns. If you’re missing teeth, the longer you wait to have them replaced, the more stress your existing teeth must endure. Talk with Dr. Liscio about your options, and he’ll provide the information you need to make wise decisions.
Many patients don’t need restorative dentistry, but they could benefit from a more attractive smile. The porcelain veneers Dr. Liscio creates can make chipped, unevenly spaced, stained, or slightly misaligned teeth look absolutely beautiful. Manufactured of high quality porcelain, handcrafted veneers reflect light like natural tooth enamel, and the doctor considers face shape and features, skin tone, and overall appearance when designing them.
