Cosmetic Dentistry in Bernardsville

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. Proud to Smile Dentistry 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 Proud to Smile Dentistry, 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 Proud to Smile Dentistry, 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. If you you want to enhance the appearance of your smile, our team can help you start smiling in no time.
