Your dental health is always the top priority at NU Dental Eatontown. However, we also understand that you may not feel particularly satisfied with your smile’s overall appearance. For example, if misshapen teeth are present or you wish your teeth were just a few shades brighter, Dr. G is here to help! There are many cosmetic treatments to choose from at our dental office, making it easy to show your smile off to friends, family, and people you’re meeting for the very first time. Give our dental office a call to get started with cosmetic dentistry in Eatontown, NJ!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
