Eric Burgess, DMD
Cosmetic dentistry is not a recognized specialty and therefore, patients must do their research in order to find a skilled cosmetic dentist. Questions to ask include whether the cosmetic dentist has advanced training in cosmetic, implant and laser dentistry. Do they have experience in smile makeovers? What credentials has the dentist achieved? What organizations are they involved in? Also ask to see before and after photos, and are these actual cases completed by the doctor. Finally, request patient testimonials and ask if can you speak to them about their experiences.
Fortunately, Dr. Eric Burgess, of The Burgess Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, meets all of the above criteria. In addition to extensive cosmetic training with the leaders of dentistry, Dr. Burgess is a founder of the Florida Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He has achieved the prestigious fellowship status in both the Academy of General Dentistry and the International Congress of Oral Implantology. Dr. Burgess is also a sustaining member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, passing a rigorous exam and continuing education requirements.
The most exciting new offerings at the Burgess Center are Six-Month PowerBraces and Laser Periodontal Therapy. The Power Braces are fast (4-6 months), comfortable, and a more conservative option than veneers. Laser periodontal therapy allows new bone growth around weakened teeth for the first time ever in dentistry, without scalpels, stitches, or exposing your roots! As you can see, we take pride in our commitment to providing the most advanced technologies, from one visit crowns to Novocaine-free fillings with lasers; we offer it all in one, convenient location.
