There is so much to be thankful for, and so many reasons to smile this time of year. But if you have annoying dental issues going on, you might not feel much like smiling at your holiday gatherings.
That’s where we come in. Our Lincroft, NJ dentist’s office has some great cosmetic dentistry solutions that are designed to get you smiling BIG again. Today, we’ll take a look at five of them. Keep reading, and then be sure to follow up with Dr. Friedman to schedule your smile makeover consultation at Newman Springs Dental Care.
Not quite ready for the complete makeover? Why not ease your way into cosmetic dentistry with some dental bonding? With this great procedure a small amount of tooth-colored material is applied directly to your teeth, and then smoothed out to cover any noticeable imperfections. It is quick, easy, and cost-effective!
Professional Teeth Whitening
If your smile is yellow, stained, or otherwise discolored, that can create an embarrassing situation for you.
Even with daily brushing brushing, the stains on your teeth won’t ever seem to go away. And, let this be a warning to you: there are a wide-variety of cheaply manufactured one-size-fits-all whitening products on supermarket shelves, but these products are far less effective than professional teeth whitening solutions, and some of them can damage your gums and teeth.
But we can do better than that. At Newman Springs Dental Care, we will work with you to get your teeth to that desired shade of white. We will conduct a thorough oral exam, and advise you if your teeth are healthy enough for whitening. In some cases, tooth decay or erosion must be addressed first.
To complete the whitening process, it will only take a couple of in-office visits. We apply protection to your gums during the process, and provide take-home kits for maintenance. If you want the whitest teeth imaginable, professional teeth whitening from Dr. Friedman is the way to go!
Dental veneers are the great catchall cosmetic solution for any number of dental flaws. Dental veneers are life-like, tooth-colored covers that are bonded to your teeth. Veneers act as sort of mask or shell for misshapen, misaligned, chipped, or cracked teeth. Our veneers can even be used to fill in minor gaps between your teeth.
Around here, we feature both composite veneers and porcelain veneers. Composite veneers can be applied in as little as one appointment, and are generally the less expensive option. They are made from synthetic material and are a great option for many situations.
Porcelain veneers take a little longer to apply, and generally cost a little more as a result. They are made from a ceramic material, though, and are incredibly long-lasting. Porcelain veneers are a great option if you want a longer lasting, lower maintenance solution for your teeth. We’ll help you decide which one is best for you during your consultation!
Invisalign Clear Braces
Tired of your mildly crooked, crowded, or gapped smile? We can help! Invisalign uses transparent aligners to correct misalignments and gaps in your teeth. The aligners are removable; meaning you can continue to eat what you’d like, and take them out before important meetings or selfies.
Plus, even with the aligners in, they are far less noticeable than conventional braces. Stunning results can be achieved in about 12 months rather than 2-3 long years. Most adults and teenagers are suitable candidates for Invisalign. So, make it a family project!
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles are another short-term braces program that can be used to correct gaps in your teeth, teeth that overlap, and teeth that are misaligned. Designed with clear brackets and braces, as well as tooth-colored wires, Six Month Smiles are barely noticeable!
Here’s how this method works: Six Month Smiles only targets teeth that are visible when you smile! So, the process is far less intense than traditional braces. Additionally, due to the far shorter treatment time, Six Month Smiles are far more affordable than standard adult braces.
