Bernardsville Dentist Serving Morristown, Basking Ridge, Mendham, Chester, and Far Hills, NJ

A highly trained and gifted cosmetic dentist will work to improve the appearance of your smile through a variety of dental procedures that are fairly quick and almost always pain-free. Whether your problems are small and simple or large and involved, there is a procedure or combination of procedures that can help you achieve your desired results.

Cosmetic dentistry can fix practically every dental flaw imaginable, including:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Cracked teeth or teeth that have holes
  • Teeth that are too long or short
  • Stained teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Jagged or crooked teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Teeth that have gaps or are too close together
  • Missing teeth
  • Teeth that have been damaged or lacking luster due to age

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

Even a slight change can make a noticeable difference in your self-confidence and will have your friends wondering what you did to enhance your appearance. In many cases, our cosmetic dentist may suggest a combination of procedures to generate the most effective outcome.

Some common techniques include:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental crowns
  • Dental bonding
  • Tooth whitening
  • Dental bridges
  • Invisalign®

One of the benefits of cosmetic dentistry is that the outcome is easy to predict. Whether you decide to have a crack repaired or a gap filled, the results are predictable and reliable. If you are curious about what your smile might look like after a given procedure, before and after photos are a good indicator. Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville has a Before and After Gallery where we can show off our great work and you can see for yourself just why our patients are smiling from ear to ear.

Cosmetic Procedures

Until recent years, there were not many options for someone who wanted to improve the appearance of their teeth. Cleanings once or twice a year was generally all they could do. But over the last 10 to 15 years, the field of cosmetic dentistry has allowed anyone to fix whatever insecurities they have about their smile. Many of these procedures have become quite affordable through various financing plans and credit options.

At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we perform a variety of cosmetic dental procedures to correct an array of dental imperfections. Whether you have a cracked or missing tooth resulting from trauma or you merely want to whiten your smile by a few shades, Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb has the cosmetic dentistry skills and experience necessary to fix any aspect of your smile.

The most common procedures that our cosmetic dentist offers include:

  • Teeth Whitening: Lighten your teeth through in-office power whitening or in the privacy of your home with take-home kits
  • Porcelain Veneers: These thin shells of porcelain are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to change the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth.
  • Dental Crowns: Fix major dental problems or protect a damaged tooth or root with a dental crown, which fits over your natural tooth.
  • Smile Makeovers: Achieve that Hollywood smile through different cosmetic dental procedures to enhance and your smile, improve functionality, and increase your self-confidence.
  • Invisalign®: Instead of wearing metal braces for years, use these clear plastic aligners to move your teeth in just months.
  • Bridges: These are used to fill in the empty space with a prosthetic tooth that attaches to the adjacent tooth and “bridges” the empty space.
  • Dental Bonding: A tooth-colored resin is bonded to your tooth to fill cavities and correct chips, gaps, and spaces.
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings: Aesthetically pleasing and incredibly durable, metal-free fillings reinforce weak teeth and help prevent future damage.
  • We also offer non-surgical periodontal therapy, porcelain inlays and onlays, gum recontouring, and dentures and partials.

We offer sedation dentistry with oral and intravenous (IV) sedation as well as nitrous oxide to ensure your maximum comfort. At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, there is a board-certified anesthesiologist on hand to make sure you are safe and adequately sedated.

During your initial consultation, our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb, and her team will discuss the differences between general and cosmetic dentistry and which procedure or combination of procedures might be right for your smile.

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience at Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville and Patti Swaintek-Lamb, DMD along with her tremendous staff. I have been to dozens of dentists over the years and hands down this has been my best experience and I loved my last dentist before I moved away. They are a wonderful combination of professional and caring. Great kindness and respect is shown to their patients. It is very welcoming environment. For those who dread the dental visit I recommend this office that works to create a calming and supportive atmosphere. The dental work/care was excellent from beginning to end and I look forward to my next visit.

Dr. Patti and her incredible staff perfectly mix professionalism and brilliance with an ability to make patients feel right at home. I have been a patient for almost 10 years and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. From teeth cleanings to more invasive procedures, Dr. Patti's team is unmatched. Lately I have been treating for my sleep apnea. I can say without exaggeration that the device Dr. Patti prescribed and developed for me changed my life. I went from fitful nights of frequently-interrupted sleep all while snoring like a jackal, to sleeping through the night without making a sound. My wife may be happier at this development than I am. In short, whatever your dental/sleep needs, look no further than Aesthetic Dentistry.
