Cosmetic dentistry is aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and your smile. At Englewood Cliffs Dentistry we strive to maintain your smiles’ health, function, and appearance for a lifetime. We believe that esthetic dentistry must complement the overall general and oral health of the patient. Smile enhancement can have dramatic results on your overall appearance. Even the smallest step can boost your confidence, self-esteem, and make you want to smile more. With modern advances in dentistry, cosmetic procedures can range from a basic color correction to replacing missing teeth, and everything in between.
Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural color of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. At Englewood Cliffs Dentistry we use GLO Professional Teeth Whitening system. GLO is the only teeth whitening technology with a controlled illuminating heat mouthpiece for the fastest results and optimal patient comfort.
Porcelain Veneers and Crowns
If you would like to improve your smile’s appearance, porcelain veneers or crowns may be the right choice for you. Essentially, veneers are thin porcelain jackets placed over your teeth’s front surfaces to give them a natural, even, and clean appearance. A crown is used to replace your tooth’s entire external portion up to your gum level, allowing it to maintain the function and recreate the form of your tooth.
This process is usually used in improving the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. In cosmetic bonding, a tooth-colored resin material will be applied to the damaged tooth using a special light and an adhesive. It wonderfully mimics natural teeth appearance.
This treatment plan is customized and may include contouring, denture, porcelain veneers, inlays and onlays, and crowns. It is intended to renew and repair even the most damaged of smiles.
Invisalign® works through the use of removable aligners instead of using the traditional non-removable braces. Many dentists are able to provide Invisalign® treatment, so there is no need to go to an orthodontist. Check with our dental office to see if they are able to provide you with this treatment.
