Why Choose NU Dental Eatontown for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are designed to bond directly to teeth and often made from an ultra-thin ceramic. This means they can be used to hide a multitude of cosmetic imperfections, including cracks, stains, and other issues. While many veneers are made from composite resin, a cheaper material, NU Dental Eatontown opts for porcelain instead. We’ve found that porcelain is generally longer-lasting and is actually more stain-resistant than natural enamel. Because of their versatility, you can also reduce the number of cosmetic treatments you’d need to complete.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Do your teeth need to be repaired, either due to cracks or severe chips? There’s no reason to sacrifice appearance just for structure and longevity. We offer durable and long-lasting solutions that blend in with your smile, such as ceramic crowns! These restorations can be custom-shaded to match your teeth and still last for years on end without worry. Whether you’re posing for a photo or chewing your favorite foods, you can do so with confidence. This makes metal-free crowns both a cosmetic and restorative solution.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Are one of your teeth chipped or cracked in a way that is only cosmetic in nature? Repairing it is easy with the help of a tooth-colored composite resin! This material can be easily molded and shaded to blend in with existing teeth through a process called cosmetic bonding. In terms of cosmetic treatments, this is one of the fastest and more affordable solutions out there. While other treatments may take two to three visits to complete, such as porcelain veneers and dental crowns, cosmetic bonding can be done the same day you visit.

Teeth Whitening

NU Dental Eatontown uses Ultradent whitening products to remove stains not just from the surface of teeth, but the deeper layers of enamel as well. This brightens the teeth multiple shades and provides longer-lasting results compared to store-bought solutions. Sure, whitening toothpaste and strips may be ideal for surface stains, but they won’t last for long. Our dental office performs whitening treatment that is not only designed to last, but only takes about an hour to complete. However, those who would prefer to whiten on their own time will enjoy our professional-grade take-home whitening solutions.

Gum Recontouring

Teeth often get the most attention in cosmetic dentistry, but the gums are just as much a part of your smile’s appearance. For example, if you notice that you have a large amount of gum tissue, your teeth can look short, stubby, or less visible than they should be. In order to best resolve this, we can carefully reshape your gum line and gently remove any unnecessary gum tissue. This process is known as gum recontouring and is performed using a soft tissue laser. Using a laser means your treatment will be more comfortable, reduce the amount of bleeding, and expedite the healing process.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right for Me?

Prospective cosmetic dentistry patients are often trying to either whiten their teeth or correct flaws in them. Once our cosmetic dentist examines your teeth, they can help you explore solutions that make sense for your goals, such as:

  • Veneers – If you have multiple dental imperfections, you may want to consider veneers. Even though they can be costly, they’re the only option capable of correcting several flaws at once. Plus, you can enjoy your new-and-improved smile for over a decade with proper maintenance.
  • Metal-Free Restorations – When you need restorative care to rebuild a damaged or decayed tooth, our team will help you maintain your naturally confident appearance with materials that are 100 percent biocompatible, highly durable, and an exceptionally close match for tooth enamel. This is a lower-cost option.
  • Teeth Whitening – Don’t like the color of your smile? Professional whitening treatment is a fast, cost-effective way to improve your pearly whites! However, keep in mind that it cannot help with the shape or position of your teeth. In-office whitening and take-home kits are available, as cost and treatment time varies with each one. Expect at-home whitening to take longer and be less expensive between the two.  
  • Dental Bonding – If you have minor imperfections you want to address, dental bonding may be the ideal solution for you. It’s a fast, efficient, and cost-effective way to improve tooth shape, size, and color. Although this option is affordable, it will need to be redone every few years.

Frequently Asked Questions – Cosmetic Dentistry

Thanks to advancements made in dental technology, seeing a cosmetic dentist is no longer reserved for just the rich and famous. You too can make your dream smile a reality with the help of Dr. G and the rest of our team! Do you still have concerns or doubts? If so, don’t worry – we’ve created this handy FAQ section to help answer your questions while you wait for your appointment. Of course, we’ll be happy to answer any additional questions during your consultation. 

Does dental insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?

Every dental insurance provider is different, but as a general rule, elective procedures like cosmetic dentistry are not covered. However, there may be exceptions. A dental crown, for instance, may overlap into restorative dentistry if it is deemed necessary to improve your oral health. In that case, your insurance may foot a portion of the bill.

Our practice is in-network with many of the most popular dental insurance providers in the area, and we’ll gladly look over the details of your plan to see if you qualify for any coverage.

Do you not have dental insurance? That’s not a problem. We can help you apply for a flexible payment plan through CareCredit, which often comes with low to no interest. We also have an in-house dental membership plan that covers preventive care and gives you discounts on other services, including cosmetics, in exchange for an annual fee.

I want to fix my smile, but I don’t know where to start. What should I do?

Deciding that you want to improve your smile can seem intimidating if you’re not sure what to do. In most cases, the first step in the process is simply giving our office a call. Just tell us that you’re interested in fixing your smile, and we’ll take it from there! We can schedule you a consultation, where Dr. G will talk about your smile goals and lay out your options for achieving them.

How do I choose a cosmetic dentist?

Finding a cosmetic dentist can also feel daunting. Often, you can start by simply searching online for terms like “cosmetic dentist near me” and perusing the results. You’ll want to choose a dentist who offers a wide variety of cosmetic services that could help you fix the specific smile problems you have. Reading reviews can give you an idea of how that dentist treats their patients.

Do I need orthodontic treatment?

If you have crooked teeth, you may hesitate to seek orthodontic treatment because you don’t want to wear metal braces for two or more years. Fortunately, that is not the case here at NU Dental Eatontown. We offer two different types of orthodontic treatment: Invisalign and NU Smile Aligners, our own brand of clear aligners. Both of these systems subtly straighten your teeth with smooth plastic trays rather than metal brackets and wires.
