We all want to look and feel our best and having a beautiful smile is a great confidence booster. If you’re like most adults, brushing and flossing alone just doesn’t give you that dazzling, white smile. As a general and cosmetic dentist, it’s my job to help you keep your smile strong, but also to help you achieve the look you desire. I have seen many cosmetic dentistry cases at my Bergenfield, NJ practice and can help you find out what cosmetic dentistry services will brighten, or even restore, your smile.
Dental Implants, a Functional and Cosmetic Choice
If you’re missing teeth, you know that it’s not only difficult to smile, but it can also be hard to enjoy your favorite foods, speak clearly, and your cheeks can take on a sunken appearance, aging you beyond your years. The good news is you don’t have to settle for dentures. Dental implants are a great choice for replacing teeth and are a natural-looking, strong prosthesis. My patients love this option because dental implants look and feel like their real teeth, so they regain function as well as their confidence. Just a quick consultation at my Bergenfield, NJ office, and we can determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. (more…)
