Are you thinking you may need a smile upgrade?

If your teeth aren't up to par, smiling could be one of the most difficult things to do. This is why Dr. Jeffrey Mason of Hasbrouck Heights, NJ, provides patients with several treatment options to improve your smile and restore certain functions.

How does cosmetic dentistry improve your smile?

Cosmetic dentistry improves people's appearance. It fixes issues like stained teeth caused by coffee, tea, smoking, and certain food and beverages. Cosmetic dentistry can also repair broken, chipped and missing teeth that may have resulted because of a sports accident, for example, or even teeth grinding while sleeping. Cosmetic dentistry can also fix problems like crookedness and spaces between teeth.

Before getting any work done, make sure you consult your Hasbrouck Heights dentist, Dr. Mason, about the best procedure for you.

Types of Cosmetic Procedures:

  1. Teeth Whitening is a teeth bleaching procedure that brightens and whitens discolored and stained teeth.
  2. Dental Veneers are custom-made thin porcelain shells cemented to the front side of tooth to conceal slight crookedness, discoloration, chipped teeth, and/or spaces between the teeth.
  3. Dental Implants mimic the appearance of real teeth to replace missing gaps using a titanium post. Although implants have functional advantages, they're a cosmetic procedure also designed to anchor other appliances, like crowns, bridges, and/or dentures.
  4. Dental Crowns are porcelain caps that fit over poorly shaped, badly decayed, broken, or chipped teeth to restore bite, speech and your smile.
  5. Cosmetic Tooth Bonding is when a tooth-colored material is adhered to teeth to repair or improve badly stained, broken, or chipped teeth.
