Cosmetic Dentistry In West Orange, NJ
Some people are blessed with a beautiful smile from birth, but most people need a little bit of help to get their smiles up to par. The aim of cosmetic dentistry is to take your uniquely beautiful smile and make it look as perfect as possible—whiter, straighter, and contoured to fit your face.
Cosmetic dentistry primarily focuses on the aesthetics of your smile rather than the health and function of your teeth and gums. Our cosmetic dentists, Dr. Robert Bagoff and Dr. Steven Levenbrook, help give patients the smiles they’ve been looking for, from whitening to restoration to replacing missing teeth. If you are looking to change the appearance of your smile, whether minor or drastic, then cosmetic dentistry from Bagoff & Levenbrook Dental Arts is the answer!
From more conservative treatments to more aggressive procedures, cosmetic dentistry services can help correct minor and major cosmetic issues with your teeth and smile. The right procedure can turn an average grin into an impressive smile. Your smile is your gift to the world, and cosmetic dentistry can transform how you look.
New materials and technologies have changed the practice of cosmetic dentistry and given you a wide array of cosmetic dental services to choose from. Advancements in dental technology have created more natural, tooth-like options and materials then ever before, so no one will be able to tell that you have received restorative dental work. If you’re looking to improve your smile, schedule a consultation with a skilled cosmetic dentist at Bagoff & Levenbrook Dental Arts.
Why Is Cosmetic Dentistry So Popular?
A smile is a way of telling someone we’re happy, we’re pleased to be in their company, or that we’re having a good time. It’s a greeting and an important social cue. So if you feel like you have to hide your teeth from others, it can affect how you interact with the world. Dr. Bagoff and Dr. Levenbrook can help people with even the most discolored or damaged teeth see an improvement in their smile, which is why our cosmetic dentistry services are so popular.
Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Here are some of the most common treatments that we offer at our West Orange, NJ dental office:
- Invisalign Clear Aligners (straightens your teeth using clear removable trays).
- Veneers (cover the front of the teeth to make them look whiter, straighter, and smoother).
- Crowns (cover the whole outer enamel of an imperfect tooth).
- Professional Teeth Whitening (bleaches the teeth so they look shades whiter).
- Dental Implants (permanent tooth replacements).
- Gum surgery (to fix “gummy” smiles).
- Cosmetic fillings (fixes cavities with tooth-colored matter).
- Cosmetic bonding and contouring (for minor cracks and chips in the teeth).
If you have old, unsightly metal fillings, they can be replaced with cosmetically beautiful tooth-colored restorations. People will notice your smile and not your fillings.
These treatments can whiten teeth up to eight shades; you can choose from an in-office procedure which takes an hour, or a convenient take-home kit you can use in the privacy of your home.
Bonding uses a tooth-colored liquid resin which is sculpted perfectly to match your tooth and hardened with a special ultraviolet light. Composite bonding can close small gaps between teeth, change the color of your teeth, and cover small chips and cracks.
Contouring and Reshaping
This procedure can cosmetically straighten or correct overlapped, cracked, chipped or crooked teeth. Contouring and reshaping can be done as a stand-alone procedure, or in combination with composite bonding to achieve the look you want.
Thin sheaths of porcelain are placed on your teeth to improve their appearance.
Porcelain veneers are used to correct teeth that are:
- Badly shaped, broken or poorly aligned
- Heavily stained or discolored
- Chipped and cracked from age-related wear
- Spaced apart or slightly overlapped
Invisalign is the state-of-the-art virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. Invisalign treatment uses comfortable, clear plastic trays, called aligners to reposition your teeth over time. There are no metal wires or brackets involved like there are for conventional braces. The entire Invisalign process takes about 9 to 15 months.
