Cosmetic DentistryMany people suffer needlessly with crooked teeth, gaps, cracked teeth, or missing teeth. If you are unhappy with your smile, cosmetic dentistry may be able to help. Cosmetic dentistry can treat many aesthetic problems such as overlapping teeth, discoloration, or even misshapen teeth. Find out what help is available in Hasbrouck Heights.

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

  • Cosmetic Bonding

This can repair small chips or cracks in the teeth using a composite resin material that is painted over your teeth by a dentist.

  • Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers can completely change the look of your smile by lengthening your teeth, filling gaps, and even changing the shape of the tooth. Veneers use wafer-thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded on your teeth to create a completely natural look that can last a lifetime.

  • Dental Crowns and Bridges

If you’ve suffered tooth decay or tooth loss, a dental crown or bridge can replace the surface area of your tooth to restore its appearance and functionality. Crowns and bridges are usually made of porcelain for a durable and natural-looking tooth replacement.

  • Dental Implants

If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants can help to replace those teeth and restore your smile and your bite. A dental implant is a titanium post that is fixed into the jaw to create a new root on top of which a crown or bridge can be placed. Dental implants are a good solution for anyone missing one, multiple, or even all of your teeth.

  • Teeth Whitening

If your teeth are stained or discolored, tooth whitening by your dentist can help to lighten and brighten your teeth by up to ten shades in just about an hour. The process is safer and more effective than home whitening systems in just a fraction of the time.
