Are you worried about the appearance of your teeth? Do you want to rejuvenate your smile? Drs. Saul and David Frechtman, your Edison, cosmetic dentistryNJ, dentists can help with your cosmetic needs.

Here are a few procedures:

Fillings and Dental Bondings:

Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite resin, are used during dental bonding procedures. The composite is made of plastic resin and a filler of finely ground glass-like particles and is used to fix issues, such as:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Fractures
  • Decays
  • Discolored and stained teeth
  • Short teeth


Sealants are thin, protective materials coated onto teeth, especially the molars. Your Edison, NJ, dentists coat the chewing surface of the molars because they are uneven and rough, making them an easy place for bacteria to flourish.

If bacteria settles in, cavities will begin eating away at your teeth. That's why it's best to maintain a consistent oral regiment of brushing and flossing, as well as visiting your doctor twice a year. Preventative care is key to healthy oral care.

Root Canal:

If your tooth develops an infection or becomes inflamed in the pulp of the tooth, a tissue consisting of blood vessels, connective tissue, and nerve cells, a root canal may be necessary.

Your dentist will remove the pulp, disinfect the canal and seal it to prevent bacteria from entering the canal.

Dental Implants:

Tooth loss can lead to the deterioration of your bones because they lose the support need. If you decide to get a dental implant, here's what you need to know about the process:

  • Implants can have a high success rate, reaching 95 percent, compared to other dental restorations.
  • They can last a lifetime if cared for properly.
  • They don't slip out of place like dentures, which makes them comfortable and practical.
  • They provide your jawbone with the support it needs so that it doesn't shrink.
  • They are used to fill a single gap in your teeth, a few gaps, or all of your teeth.
  • Dental implants look natural and can give you a beautiful smile.
  • You won't have to worry about being able to bite into and chew your favorite foods.

If you have any questions or concerns about these cosmetic procedures or any others, please call Drs. Saul and David Frechtman, your Edison, NJ, dentists at Frechtman Family Dental.
