How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help Fix Your Flaws

The cosmetic dentistry industry grew 2.5% between 2013 and 2018, a sign that people increasingly are using cosmetic dentistry to fix their dental flaws.

Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville invests in the latest technologies to make sure you have access to reliable, effective cosmetic dentistry options. Whether you have broken teeth or a few stains, Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb can fix your flaws and give you a healthier, more attractive smile.

Invisalign® straightens your teeth

If you have crooked or crowded teeth, you don’t have to wear metal braces to get a straighter smile. Invisalign uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth without the embarrassment of metal braces.

When you get Invisalign from Dr. Swaintek-Lamb, she uses a scanner to create a 3D image of your teeth and mouth. We then send the scan to a lab that makes your first set of custom aligners.

Over the next few months, you periodically get new aligners that progressively straighten your teeth and close gaps. It’s one of the easiest ways to fix your crooked teeth without the need for metal retainers.

Porcelain crowns restore damaged teeth

Crowns fit over your natural teeth that have become damaged or weak. The crowns can fix teeth that are broken, stained, chipped, cracked, and gapped. We also use crowns when patients have large cavities that we can’t fix with typical fillings.

At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we use all-porcelain crowns because they look more attractive than other options.

Veneers hide cracked, chipped, and stained teeth

Veneers are thin covers that Dr. Swaintek-Lamb can attach to the front of your teeth. The veneers act like a shell that hides your cracked, chipped, or stained teeth. She also uses veneers to hide small gaps between your teeth. We even adjust the color of the veneers to match the natural shade of your teeth.

At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we prefer veneers made of porcelain. In addition to being attractive, porcelain is resilient, so it helps make your teeth stronger.

Porcelain veneers do more than hide imperfections. They also improve the overall health of your mouth. When applying custom veneers, we’re also able to follow a full-mouth rehabilitation process that includes restoring your gums and teeth. As a result, your more-attractive smile and healthier teeth help protect you from other health problems like gingivitis and even heart disease.

If you want a quick, affordable way to fix broken or chipped teeth, porcelain veneers are probably your best option.

Tooth whitening removes stains

Over the years, your teeth can get stained by products like coffee, tea, soda, red wine, and tobacco. Some teeth become stained as part of the aging process.

Tooth whitening removes stains so you can feel confident showing off your smile.

We use Opalescence to remove stains using a gel that passes into your teeth to oxidize the discolored molecules deep down in your teeth, removing stains and whitening your smile. The results last for a long time but once you notice a your stains again, touch-up treatments are available for a quick and easy way to get your white smile back.

Our tooth whitening process usually takes about an hour. In that time, you can go from stained teeth to beautiful white teeth that make you look better than ever.
