There’s no reason to hide behind less-than-perfect teeth. After all, a clean, healthy mouth and a beautiful smile are your best assets! Our practice specializes in a wide array of procedures from crowns and veneers to teeth whitening and dental implants. We serve Springfield, Worcester and surrounding communities with the purpose of giving you the dazzling results you deserve.
We are devoted to giving you the exact look you desire, whether that requires delicate enhancement or more complex procedures. The following are just a few of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer:
Our practice uses state-of-the-art technology to treat cavities, tooth decay, discolored teeth, and periodontal problems. This laser is directed onto the problem area, correcting decayed teeth, enamel and gums. In the case of laser drilling, Dr. Rapisarda uses the Lightwalker AT Laser to gently remove decay while leaving healthy tooth structure in place, generally without any need for anesthesia or shots! Not only is laser dentistry quicker and more comfortable than traditional techniques, but it also results in significantly faster healing time for the patient and less sensitive teeth. To learn more about the possibilities of laser dentistry, please consult our office today.
Based on your natural teeth and specific facial features, our dentist can custom-design a beautiful smile exactly suited to you. We first use digital computer imaging to give you a preview of what your smile could look like with enhancements.
Next, we employ a wide array of techniques – including veneers, crowns, and onlays – to correct misaligned, misshapen, or twisted teeth and create a more aesthetically balanced smile. Then, for the finishing touch, we polish off your new look with teeth whitening for a dazzling, beautiful new you.

A smile can be dulled by stained, chipped, cracked, or misaligned teeth. But bonding can quickly and painlessly restore your smile’s natural beauty. During the procedure, a thin coating of plastic or resin is painted over the damaged teeth, strengthening them and making them virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. To find out if bonding is the right option for you, please contact us today.
An excellent alternative to crowns, our veneers can perfect your smile by masking stains, hiding chips, correcting misalignment, and creating uniformity. Veneers, which are made of thin, customized porcelain designed to slide over the teeth, look incredibly natural, are long-lasting and are relatively easy to apply. Please contact us today to find out more about veneers.
Also called caps, crowns are natural-looking covers fitting snugly over teeth. They conceal cracked, badly discolored, injured or chipped teeth. Our porcelain crowns provide support to damaged teeth while also restoring functionality and esthetic balance. Ultimately, crowns can dramatically improve the overall appearance of your smile while making your teeth more resistant to injury. For more information about crowns, please contact us today.
Gone are the days when tooth ailments and cavities could only be treated with unsightly metal fillings. Today, modern tooth-colored fillings made of durable resin or porcelain can be bonded to your teeth for a more natural-looking effect. These revolutionary fillings are virtually undetectable and are easy to apply. To find out if tooth-colored fillings are a good option for you, please contact us today.
Our doctor performs dental implant restoration by attaching artificial teeth to implants anchored in the bone below the gum line. After the anchor has been surgically placed in the jawbone, excess bone and gum grow around the implant, holding it firmly in place.
An artificial tooth can then be attached to the implant. The end result is a secure tooth that is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Contact us to learn more about how we restore dental implants at our office near the Worcester and Springfield areas.
Sometimes a bit more work is needed to give you the smile you want. If you are missing teeth, having trouble speaking or chewing, or are noticing strain when biting, bridges may be the ideal procedure to help make your mouth healthy and beautiful again. Bridges sometimes referred to as fixed partial dentures, literally bridge gaps between teeth by filling them with natural-looking artificial teeth. Bridges are semi-permanent – they can only be removed by a dentist – and are comfortable and proven to strengthen teeth. To find out if bridges are the right option for you, please contact us today.
