Your cosmetic dentists in Edison, New Jersey can give you an outstanding smile

Having a beautiful smile is important. After all, your smile is your trademark. Fortunately, if you are living with a dull, yellow, uninteresting smile, Drs. Saul and David Frechtman of Frechtman Family Dental in Edison, NJ, offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options to give you an amazing set of teeth.

Let’s consider just a few of the amazing cosmetic dentistry services available:

Professional teeth whitening: this is an excellent choice to brighten up a dull, aging smile and take years off of your appearance. That's because this treatment can whiten your smile up to 8 shades whiter with fantastic results that can last up to 5 years! It’s safe too, for all products and methods have been tested and approved by the American Dental Association. During a consultation, you can choose from a speedy in-office treatment that takes about an hour, or a convenient take-home kit that allows you to whiten your smile at your own pace.

Cosmetic bonding: this is the perfect solution to repair small chips, cracks, tooth wear, and other unsightly damage. Bonding uses composite, a material that can be matched to the color of your teeth, creating results that look completely natural.

Porcelain veneers: this treatment can take your smile from dull to dazzling in just a couple of appointments. Veneers are thin laminates of porcelain that are cemented on to the front surfaces of your teeth to hide both minor and major aesthetic issues like cracks, fractures, chips, tooth wear, and other problems. Porcelain reflects light, looks just like tooth enamel, and successfully resists stains. Accordingly, your porcelain veneers will look completely natural and stay both white and beautiful for years.

Would you like to make a few changes to enhance your smile? Porcelain veneers may offer the perfect solution. Here at Frechtman Family Dental of Edison in Edison, NJ, your cosmetic dentists, Drs. Saul and David Frechtman, offer these popular restorations to improve the look of their patients—read on to learn more!

What are porcelain veneers?

Complicated dental procedures aren't the only options if you'd like to correct smile imperfections and flaws—veneers offer a simpler option. These thin tooth-shaped shells are attached to the fronts of your teeth with dental cement, hiding a variety of flaws.

Veneers are made of porcelain, a translucent material that looks just like tooth enamel. They're available in practically any shade of white imaginable, making the restorations a good choice whether you want to match the color of surrounding teeth or whiten your entire smile.

How are my teeth prepared for veneers?

Preparation entails that your cosmetic dentists removing a tiny amount of tooth enamel from the fronts of your teeth. Don't worry—this enamel removal is completely free from discomfort and doesn't affect the structure of your teeth.

Once the enamel has been removed, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth. Technicians at a dental laboratory then use the impression to create restorations that look and feel natural.

Can porcelain veneers really help my smile?

Veneers conceal many types of aesthetic issues, including physical damage and discolorations. Do you have a tooth that looks a little unusual? Whether the problem is a bumpy surface or an odd shape, veneers can help. Adding a veneer to your tooth will conceal uneven surfaces or make a crooked or twisted tooth look perfectly straight. Finally, veneers can also add length to short teeth, making them a particularly good choice if your teeth have shortened due to nighttime grinding.

Have questions about dental implants? Dental implants are a popular, long-term solution for patients with missing teeth. Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that are placed in your jawbone. Led by Dr. David Frechtman and Dr. Saul Frechtman, Frechtman Family Dental of Edison (located in Edison, NJ) offers state-of-the-art dental implants to the patients they serve. Keep reading to get answers to frequently asked questions about dental implants.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are an aesthetic alternative to dental bridges and dentures. A dental implant is a small anchor made of titanium that is placed in the jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth root. After the jawbone has bonded to the implant, a replacement tooth is secured to the top of the dental implant.

Why Do People Choose Implants?

Dental implants will close the gaps in your smile and improve your appearance. They will restore your ability to chew food and improve your clarity of speech. They will fill out a face that otherwise would look sunken because of missing teeth. Dental implants will also prevent jawbone loss, stimulate bone growth, and prevent your existing teeth from shifting out of place.

What Will Happen Without Treatment?

Losing your teeth will affect your appearance and change the shape of your face, causing you to look prematurely aged. The absence of one or more teeth can also have negative effects on your oral health including shifting of teeth and changes in the jaw joint. Without treatment, the healthy bone will begin to deteriorate from lack of stimulation.

Are Dental Implants Right For You?

You may be a good candidate for dental implants if you have healthy gums and adequate bone to support implants. The best candidates for implants have healthy gums that are free of gum disease. You must be committed to thorough oral hygiene to keep your smile healthy and schedule regular dental visits. If you want to restore your smile, ask your dentist if dental implants are an option for you.

How Do I Care For Dental Implants?

Good dental hygiene must take place before, during, and after placement of dental implants to keep them healthy. Implants are like your existing teeth and will require conscientious at-home oral care and regular visits to the dentist. In order to keep your new dental implants plaque-free, brushing and flossing still apply.
