Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin dental restorations that are designed to cover the front surfaces of teeth. They’re often a good choice for cosmetic transformations because they can seamlessly hide several flaws – from stains to chips to gaps between teeth – all at once behind a new, beautiful smile without harming overall function. Better yet, the durable porcelain structure actually resists staining even more effectively than natural tooth enamel!

Lumineers

While traditional porcelain veneers are a highly popular cosmetic service, some patients are hesitant to commit to them because their placement does require some natural dental structure to be removed. Lumineers are a high-quality alternative that’s even thinner – barely the thickness of a contact lens! This means that their placement (unlike traditional veneers) is reversible if the patient ever decides to return to their natural smile. Our dentists will be happy to help you explore the unique advantages of both types of veneers in greater detail during a one-on-one consultation.

Metal-Free Restorations

When a tooth has suffered serious decay or a fracture, it will require a custom-made restoration to bring back its function and appearance. Thankfully, the days of being stuck with a dark-colored metallic or gold addition are over! Our practice is happy to craft new crowns, inlays, onlays, and more from lifelike Zirconia. In addition to being 100% biocompatible and highly attractive, Zirconia is also durable enough to withstand vigorous chewing and biting for the long-term.

Direct Bonding

Direct bonding is a fast and affordable way to correct relatively minor cosmetic problems, such as dark stains on the teeth, small chips in the enamel, or thin gaps between teeth. In most cases, this process only requires a single appointment to complete. One of our dentists will apply tooth-colored composite resin to the area in question and sculpt it into place until it blends right in with the natural structure. While bonding may not be as permanent as veneers or restorative work, the improvements can still last for several years at a time!

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Dental staining and discoloration can happen over the years for various reasons, from lackluster oral hygiene to a coffee-heavy diet to simply unavoidable factors like genetics! If you’re ready to regain a beautifully white smile on a quick timeframe, consider GLO in-office whitening here in Bergenfield. This brand (short for Guided Light Optics) relies on heat and light to activate the professional-strength whitening agent. After just one application, many patients find that their enamel is up to 5 shades brighter than before!

At Home Teeth Whitening

GLO is also available from our practice as a purely take-home kit that can be used on your own schedule! The kit includes high-strength whitening gel, custom oral trays, and a safe LED light to help accelerate the whitening process. It’s easy to use these components while still performing other activities, like cooking dinner or getting ready for work. Better yet, it’s very gentle for sensitive gums and teeth.

Gum Recontouring/ Crown Lengthening

Do you feel that your smile looks overly short, unbalanced, or even “gummy” in photos? An overabundance of gum tissue can chip away at self-confidence, but it thankfully doesn’t have to be permanent. With cosmetic gum recontouring (also sometimes referred to as “crown lengthening”), our dentists can carefully remove unnecessary tissue and reshape the natural gum line so that it better compliments your teeth. We may even be able to reveal more of your beautiful smile to the world!

Digital Imaging/ Virtual Smile Design

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could see the results of certain cosmetic procedures before undergoing the treatment in the first place? With virtual smile design technology, this “dream” is a reality! All our team needs is a photo of your current smile, and we can adjust the image to reflect the positive results of veneers, direct bonding, teeth whitening, and more. You can take the altered photo home to consider how it looks or even share it with friends and family members to get their opinions. No matter what you decide, this modern visual aid can help you pursue treatment with total confidence.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Woman after cosmetic dentist in Bergenfield

Cosmetic dentistry is known for its ability to boost confidence, improve appearances, and help patients make great first impressions. The versatility of care that is available via a multitude of services makes it a popular choice among adults of all ages. But most patients considering these unique treatments may wonder what to expect or if the recommended services are even affordable. Below are just a few of the many questions we’ve received from individuals who have wondered the same thing. Review the information found here and give us a call to schedule an appointment with our cosmetic dentist in Bergenfield.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

It can be, depending on how many treatments you choose, the severity of your imperfections, and how you choose to pay. While the rumor is true that dental insurance will not cover the cost of cosmetic dentistry, there are alternative ways to pay for your treatment. Most dental offices, including Washington Dental Associates, offer flexible financing to help lower out-of-pocket expenses. There is also the option of enrolling in our Smile Savings Club, which provides basic preventive care and discounts on available treatments with a low monthly payment.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Change Your Life?

Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t just change the way your smile looks, it also improves how you take care of your pearly whites. Although the focus is primarily on aesthetics, the results you achieve can help you to feel better about yourself and thus, be more proactive about your oral health.

Whether you opt for veneers, direct bonding, teeth whitening, or any other service, these treatments can fill in gaps, repair chipped or broken teeth, and ultimately, minimize your risk for decay, gum disease, and tooth sensitivity – all of which benefit your oral and overall health as well as your appearance.

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Needing and wanting cosmetic dentistry are two different things. Most patients “want” these treatments because they no longer enjoy seeing various flaws on display for the world to see. To determine if you might benefit from these services, though, you must schedule a consultation with a member of our dental team. Smiles that are free of decay and gum disease will likely be considered; however, if there are any oral health issues that are evident, they must be treated before cosmetic solutions can be completed.

What is the Difference Between a Dentist and a Cosmetic Dentist?

Cosmetic dentistry is not considered a designated specialization like orthodontics, pedodontics, endodontics, or periodontology. However, it does require licensed dentists to undergo advanced training to ensure optimal results are achieved. To be considered a cosmetic dentist, the professional must be a licensed dentist with a DDS or DMD from an accredited university.

Our dentists at Washington Dental Associates have obtained a multitude of continuing education hours and training devoted to cosmetic dentistry, making us capable of providing cosmetic services of all types to patients like you who deserve a more beautiful smile.
