Here’s What To Do If You Are Unhappy with Your Smile

Cosmetic dentistry for a gorgeous smile New Jersey

Are you bothered by the appearance of your smile but don’t know how to fix it? Then the first thing you should do is schedule a consultation with Northfield Dental Group. Our experienced and skilled West Orange dentists have helped hundreds of patients achieve their dream smile with an array of cosmetic dental treatments. In this blog post, our team discusses common cosmetic dental concerns and how they can be addressed.

For Chipped, Cracked or Unevenly Shaped Teeth

Even the smallest chip or crack in a tooth can put a damper in your smile. If you avoid smiling because of cracked, unevenly shaped teeth or other minor cosmetic imperfections, porcelain veneers may be the solution. Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are placed over the front surface of teeth to improve their shape, size and/or color. Crafted to match the color of natural enamel, veneers blend in with other teeth for a seamless smile.

For Yellow, Discolored Teeth

An in-office teeth whitening is one of the quickest and most effective ways to transform a dull and lackluster smile into one that is radiant and beautiful. In-office teeth whitening takes approximately one hour to complete and, thanks to the strength of the hydrogen peroxide we use, can lighten teeth up to eight shades! To help you maintain your whitening results, we will provide you with a set of customized whitening trays to use in the comfort of your own home.

Not all stains respond to the whitening process, however. If your stains or discoloration do not improve with teeth whitening, we may be able to conceal them with porcelain veneers or dental bonding.

For Crooked Teeth

For minor spacing and alignment issues, consider Invisalign. This modern orthodontic treatment uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to gradually shift teeth into the desired position. Invisalign aligners are removable and allow you to straighten your teeth comfortably and confidently — without bulky metal braces.

For Multiple Cosmetic Concerns about Your Smile

If you are unhappy with multiple aspects of your smile, you may be a good candidate for a smile makeover. This multi-step treatment involves two or more cosmetic dental treatments mentioned above to obtain the desired results. Smile makeovers are tailored to each patient’s needs and goals.
