While Cosmetic Dentistry is not a recognized field of study by the American Dental Association and the Florida Board of Dentistry, it is a term that describes dentists who refer to themselves as Cosmetic Dentists.
Dr. Markowitz has completed three levels of training at the Rosenthal Institute and Aesthetic Advantage, Inc. He received a Masters Level of Achievement in Aesthetic Dentistry. The focus of his training was to create beautiful smiles that would function and look great for years. He focused on Porcelain crowns, ceramic crowns and veneers (laminates) with an emphasis on making them functional and effective.
Invisalign Braces is another Cosmetic Dentistry technique used to achieve beautiful smiles. Dr. Alan Markowitz is a preferred provider for Invisalign, which is based onthe level of his coursework with Align Technologies, as well as, the number of completed, successfulInvisalign patients.
Another aspect of Cosmetic Dentistry is Bonded restorations or Composite fillings. These are restorations that restore teeth to their natural color. Bonded restorations can be made of either composite (fillings) or porcelain. Porcelain restorations are the most natural and durable materials that are used to restore teeth and include crowns, inlays or onlays, veneers and bridges. Dr. Markowitz uses a cad/cam technology called CEREC (Chair-side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic). This advanced dental technology can make a ceramic or porcelain crown, as well as, veneers, inlays and onlays in one visit. Dr. Markowitz has completed extensive training in Cad/Cam dentistry and has mastered the use of CEREC in porcelain/ceramic cosmetic dentistry.

If you’ve lost most or all of your teeth due to tooth decay or gum disease, then regular removable dentures are not the only solution. Implants can help you by supporting a more secure and stable denture replacement for teeth. Implant placement can be a great option for denture stabilization. Among these, a special type of implant-supported prosthesis is a “hybrid denture,” referred to as a hybrid because it combines the advantages of dental implants with a denture. It is especially suitable for those who’ve lost a considerable amount of jawbone over time due to missing teeth.
