If you're ready for a life-changing smile makeover but are worried that your teeth are too chipped, cracked, or discolored, Dr. Recigno has a solution. Lumineers® porcelain veneers are a comfortable, conservative option in cosmetic dentistry that can give you the beautiful smile you've always wanted in as few as two or three appointments. Lumineers are thin sheets of porcelain that are bonded permanently to the front of your teeth. They look and feel like natural teeth, and because they require minimal preparation, Lumineers can be applied with NO shots and NO drills. No kidding! Call Willow Grove Dentistry to schedule your free Lumineers consultation today!

Snap-On Smile® is an inexpensive alternative to permanent cosmetic dental treatments such as porcelain veneers and crowns. Snap-On Smiles are made of a strong yet flexible resin that is formed into a thin, removable appliance that literally “snaps on” to your teeth. There’s no drilling, no unpleasant adhesive—no invasive preparations at all! Snap-On Smiles come in 18 different smile designs and 23 color shades, and Dr. Recigno will provide a Smile Style Guide to help you choose the right design and shade for you.

Many of the things we take for granted with our natural teeth, from smiling and talking to eating the foods we love, can become easier again with restorative dentistry. At Willow Grove Dentistry, Dr. Recigno provides a variety of restorative dental treatments that can help you get your smile back and better than ever.
Restorative Dental Treatments
- Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
- Porcelain Crowns, Inlays, & Onlays

- Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy)
- Complete & Partial Dentures
Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
Composite or “tooth-colored” fillings are cured with a special light then shaped and polished to match your other healthy teeth. The resulting restoration feels natural in your mouth and is virtually undetectable to the eye. Composite fillings are strong and durable, and because they can be bonded directly to the surface of your teeth, they often leave behind more healthy tooth structure than silver fillings.

Comprehensive dentistry involves the diagnosis and treatment of general conditions affecting the teeth, gums, and jaw. Dr. Recigno and his team at Willow Grove Dentistry focus on quality preventive care because it enables them to diagnose and treat problems while they’re still small and utilize more conservative treatment plans. Early diagnosis also reduces your risk of needing more complex and expensive treatment in the future.
General & Preventive Dental Treatments
- Routine Dental Cleanings & Individual Exams
- Digital X-rays & Intraoral Cameras
- Dental Sealants & Fluoride Treatments
- Custom Nightguards & Athletic Mouthguards
- Drug-Free Headache Prevention
Digital x-rays are a fast and comfortable tool we use at Willow Grove Dentistry to assess your dental needs. They’re safe enough to be used during pregnancy, and some studies have found that they emit up to 90% less radiation than conventional x-rays. With no chemical processing needed, digital x-rays are a good choice for you and the environment.
X-rays are commonly used in dental exams of patients of all ages, because many problems with the teeth and surrounding tissues cannot be seen by the naked eye. An x-ray is needed to reveal:
- Small areas of decay between teeth or below existing restorations
- Deep cavities
- Infections in the jaw bones
- Gum disease
- Abscesses or cysts
- Developmental abnormalities
- Some types of tumors
Like digital x-rays, digital photographs taken with our intraoral camera are a useful diagnostic and patient education tool. This camera shows you what we see during your exam and helps us guide you through your diagnosis and treatment options. It also allows us to visualize more and diagnose issues we might not have been able to see without the up-close view that it gives us.
Practically Painless Numbing Shots
Your comfort is one of our top priorities at Willow Grove Dentistry. Did you know that most of the discomfort associated with numbing shots is actually caused by the rate of injection? The Wand, also known as CompuDent®, is a computer-controlled injection device that provides a steady flow of anesthesia, guaranteeing a slower, more comfortable numbing process every time. Best of all, The Wand looks and is even held like a ball-point pen–no sharp syringes in sight!
Drug-Free Headache Prevention
Do you suffer from chronic migraine or tension headaches? The pain you feel during the day could actually be caused by involuntary teeth grinding that occurs while you sleep. Dr. Recigno can help you find relief without prescription medication by constructing a small mouthpiece that fits comfortably over your front teeth. This device prevents the muscle contractions commonly associated with headaches, allowing your jaw to relax and for you to get a good night’s sleep.
For more information on the NTI device, call our office today or visit www.HeadachePrevention.com.
According to the American Academy of Periodontology, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults over the age of 35. If your gums feel tender, look red and swollen, or bleed every time you floss, you could be at risk for gum disease. Untreated gum disease has been linked to other serious health problems, so it’s important to keep up with your biannual dental checkups and cleanings.
Gum disease used to require surgery more often than not. While surgery is still sometimes the best option, Dr. Recigno and his team at Willow Grove Dentistry can now treat many cases with less invasive techniques, including local antibiotics, deep cleanings, and medicated rinses.
- Diagnosis of Gum Disease
- Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleanings)
- Arestin® Local Antibiotic Treatments
- Long-Term Maintenance Plans
Have you been told that you have or are at risk of developing gum disease? Ask Dr. Recigno about Arestin®, an antibiotic powder that can stop the infection right where it starts. After your deep cleaning, Dr. Recigno simply applies Arestin to the small space between your tooth and gum tissue (known as the “perio-pocket”). Unlike oral antibiotics which are distributed throughout the whole body, Arestin is an antibiotic that is placed precisely at the source of the infection, around the teeth. It stays in place for up to three weeks to clear gum infection to a level that can be managed with routine dental cleanings.
