At Koren Family Dental, cosmetic dentistry in Raritan, New Jersey, and Bridgewater 08869, includes a wide range of services. These include:
Teeth whitening is done in two steps. First, Dr. Koren creates a custom mold of your mouth, which allows him to create custom fitted trays. Then you take these trays home, along with a special whitening gel, and wear the trays with the gel inside them, for a short time each day. In just a few days, your teeth can be four to eight shades whiter. Both offices in Raritan and Bridgewater offer professional teeth whitening.
Crowns act as custom fitted covers for damaged teeth. The crown can act as both a cosmetic enhancement and as extra reinforcement for the damaged tooth. Crowns are cemented onto the teeth, so they’re an enhancement and support that lasts for years. Crowns are most often used on the back teeth but can be used anywhere in the mouth.
Inlays and overlays are sometimes called partial crowns. If there is no damage to the tooth cusps, an inlay can be placed onto the tooth to help add strength and shape. When there is more extensive damage, an overlay is used. Overlays extend out further, and are thus a more complex procedure. Just as with crowns, inlays and overlays are custom fitted to your tooth. Both offices in Raritan and Bridgewater offer safe inlays and onlays.
Invisalign treatments use clear plastic teeth straightening trays. This series of plastic aligners, computer custom fitted from impressions taken of your mouth, are used in a series to shift teeth with graduated aligners every two weeks. These gradual alignment changes will straighten your teeth over 12-18 month period, depending on your need.
Dental veneers are made from thin sheets of porcelain. They can reshape, conceal, and even redesign your smile. Each veneer is custom made from impressions of your teeth and they’re cemented into place. Veneers can correct problems like minor misalignment, chipped teeth, and small gaps between teeth. Both offices in Raritan and Bridgewater, NJ offer porcelain veneers.
Dental bridges are a way to fill in gaps in the teeth. Bridges have a prosthetic tooth to fill in the gaps and use the natural teeth on either side of the missing teeth as anchor supports. Bridges can be either removable or permanent. Stop by our office in Bridgewater or Raritan in the 00869 postal area for bridges.
