3 Incredible Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures From Aesthetic Dental Center
Aesthetic Dental Center of Morris County, Dover, NJ, is proud to offer a wide variety of cutting-edge cosmetic dentistry procedures for all of our patients in Dover, Morris County, and the surrounding area.
If you are not up to date on some of the latest dental innovations, read on to discover how you can enhance the appearance of your smile with a cosmetic treatment.
1. Porcelain Veneers
Have you lost some of your self-confidence because of problems like chips, cracks, or gaps between your teeth? These types of minor imperfections can often be fixed through the placement of porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells that we attach to teeth for the correction of these types of issues.
Receiving porcelain veneers normally takes place in two convenient appointments. During your first visit, we will be creating a mold based upon an impression of your teeth. After sending this mold to a dental lab, we will apply your porcelain veneers at your next visit.
At your final visit, we will roughen the surface of your treated teeth somewhat to improve veneer adhesion. We will then attach your new porcelain veneers to your teeth for the correction of issues like chips, gaps and discoloration.
Although porcelain is not the only choice for veneers, it has become the most popular due to its superior stain resistant properties and outstanding durability.
2. Teeth Whitening Treatment
Have you tried at-home whitening strips, gels, or kits, but were disappointed in your results? Even though these types of over-the-counter products sometimes produce noticeable results, they are no match for a professional teeth whitening treatment from your dentist.
One of the main reasons that over-the-counter products are ineffective is that they normally have a very low-strength product. Our whitening gels are high strength and highly effective at whitening your teeth several shades to achieve your desired level of whiteness.
Another key advantage of undergoing a professional teeth whitening treatment is that you will have a professional dental staff available to monitor every step of the treatment process. We take care to protect your sensitive gums so that you not experience any post-procedure sensitivity, as is common following at-home treatments.
3. Dental Implants
Do you want to fix gaps in your smile because of one or more missing teeth, but are turned off by the idea of dentures or a dental bridge? If so, dental implants may be just what you are looking for. This cutting-edge technology provides a restoration that is the next best thing to your original teeth.
Unlike dentures, implants will not slip in your mouth, affecting the way that you chew or speak. As the name suggests, dental implants are firmly implanted within your jawbone, which will fuse around your new implant just like with a natural tooth root.
One problem that only implants address is the bone resorption that occurs when a tooth is missing. The presence of a tooth root maintains bone mass under the tooth. When a tooth is missing, the bone begins literally melting away, which can even affect your facial appearance. Your new implant will serve as an artificial tooth root to prevent harmful bone loss.
Most dental implant procedures take place in a couple of appointments. During the first, your dentist will place a titanium screw into your jawbone. Over the course of the following months, your jawbone will fuse around this metal post, allowing us to place an abutment on top of it. The abutment is an attachment that allows us to place a dental crown on top to serve as a chewing surface and provide the appearance of a natural tooth.
Schedule Your Consultation
It is quite common to have some degree of teeth staining as an adult. Consuming dark-colored beverages like coffee, tea, or red wine often causes stains, as does smoking. No matter what the cause, Aesthetic Dental Center of Morris County can whiten your teeth with a professional teeth whitening treatment.
Are you bothered by the appearance of your teeth because of problems like chips or stains? Porcelain veneers may be the perfect answer for you. Porcelain is extremely durable and highly stain resistant.
Do you have one or more missing teeth and are looking for a superior type of restoration? Dental implants are now the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Properly cared for, your new implants should last for the rest of your life.
