Is there something about your smile that you want to improve? Do you want to feel confident in your visual appearance? Cosmetic dentistry helps to restore smiles and self-esteem. Any number of reasons can cause your smile to be less than stellar. Many things negatively affect your teeth and appearance such as consuming excessive sugars, smoking, not regularly flossing, and even eating overly-acidic foods. These addictive habits can cause oral disease, which is often associated with severe pain, discomfort, anxiety, and impaired quality of life. Here at Comprehensive Dentistry, fixing chipped, discolored, broken, misaligned, or gapped teeth is the aim of the field of cosmetic dentistry. Proper oral health is more attainable than ever with our dentists and staff committed to providing quality service. We are dedicated to our clients with round-the-clock availability to answer any concerns ensuring patient procedure satisfaction.
A temporary crown may be placed over the tooth while the permanent crown is being made in a laboratory. Crowns can come in a variety of materials from porcelain to metal to resin, with porcelain as the top choice for those who have metal allergies.
Millions of people have dental implants. They are a preferred type of tooth restoration because they feel, look, and work like innate teeth. They are decay-resistant, meaning they will not develop cavities. You can use it just like a natural tooth.
These are small artificial pieces of tooth that are made to fit either the cusp of the tooth, such as an on-lay or between the cusps of the teeth, which is called an in-lay. Usually, these are used to cover a tooth or “fill in” a tooth after a cavity has been removed.
The in-lays and on-lays are made of extremely durable restorative materials. In the past, metal fillings were used on patients, but the expansion and contraction over the years from eating and drinking hot and cold foods and beverages weakened the fillings. In-lays and on-lays are different and can last up to 30 years.
Preventative care is essential for optimal oral health and less frequent visits to your cosmetic dentist. Cosmetic care has aided in improving dental issues for a brighter smile and the overall delight of our patients. Studies have recently linked illnesses such as diabetes, and coronary disease to oral care negligence, while at least 1 in 4 adults in the United States lives with untreated tooth decay. By scheduling regular check-ups with our Monmouth County office at least twice a year, clients increase the odds of a positive dental visit and decrease any future problems. Here we can take care of stains and bacteria wedged into difficult areas to reach that is oftentimes disregarded. These techniques prevent the build-up of plaque that eats away at the enamel, eventually leading to cavities and tooth loss if left untreated.
