Fixing your crooked smile doesn’t have to mean wearing metal braces.
Are you an adult who is tired of dealing with a misaligned smile? A smile says a lot about you and having gaps in your smile or overcrowding can certainly affect you socially and professionally. Of course, our Hillsborough, NJ, dentists are here to tell you that you don’t have to deal with those awkward, clunky metal braces in order to get the smile you’ve always wanted.
That’s right. Say goodbye to metal and say hello to clear, plastic aligners. The aligners are made to fit over your teeth and provide the appropriate amount of pressure and force to slowly move teeth into their proper position. Each aligner will fit tightly over the upper and/or lower teeth and will be worn for a week before being replaced with the next set of aligners in your treatment plan.
Invisalign is great because it offers so many unique benefits to our adult patients who want to fix their smiles later in life. This revolutionary orthodontic system allows us to treat everything from minor crookedness and overlapping to uneven spacing between teeth and a variety of other bite issues. Invisalign can even fix minor to more severe dental issues. When you come in for an evaluation our Hillsborough, NJ, general dentists will be able to determine if Invisalign is the ideal way to obtain the results you want.
Some of the benefits of getting Invisalign include:
- A treatment that is nearly invisible and won’t be as noticeable as other orthodontic systems
- Getting results in a shorter amount of time compared to traditional braces
- Less time spent coming into the office for routine checkups (you’ll come in every six weeks or so to make sure that your treatment is progressing)
- Being able to eat whatever you want since aligners are removable
- Easily being able to brush and floss your teeth without having to work around metal wires and brackets
Towne Centre Family Dental in Hillsborough, NJ, is here to provide you with the ultimate in orthodontic treatment. Whether you are an adult who wants to find out if Invisalign is right for you or you have a child who could benefit from orthodontic treatment, don’t hesitate to reach out to schedule an appointment for you or someone in your family.
Are you one of the millions of Americans dealing with tooth loss? In the past, dental bridges and dentures were the only options for replacing your teeth, but they left a lot to be desired. After all, many people were looking for a tooth replacement that not only resembled a real tooth but also functioned like one. Luckily, dental implants came on the scene to completely revolutionize the way people treated their tooth loss.
Dental implants are small metal posts or screws that are designed to take the place of your missing tooth’s roots. These artificial metal tooth roots are placed into the jawbone during a minor surgery, where over time the bone, tissue and implant will fuse together to become one. As a result, implants are the only long-term tooth replacement that can potentially last the wearer the rest of their life.
Of course, with all the advancements in dental technology, it comes as no surprise that dental implants continue to enjoy incredible makeovers. 3D cone beam imaging has become an important component for a variety of dental applications, including the implantation process. By using 3D cone beam imaging, we can more precisely map out different anatomical structures to determine not only the health and thickness of the jawbone (to ensure that it is dense enough to successfully support an implant) but also to help us determine the exact placement of the implant, so that this treatment offers an even higher success rate.
Besides offering the latest dental implant technology right here in our office, we also know that patients are looking for the simplest and least invasive treatment options for addressing their tooth loss. Some patients may desire to get dental implants but remain apprehensive because they are concerned about having to undergo invasive surgical techniques and long recovery periods in order to get their restoration.
Fortunately, there are now minimally invasive options for getting dental implants. Immediate load or same-day implants allow us to place temporary dental crowns over your implants the same day the implant is placed. Instead of having to wait for the implant to fuse with the jawbone before we place the crown, now you can enjoy a complete smile even during your implant’s recovery period.

What your dentists in Hillsborough want you to know
Your smile may be your most important asset, so you don’t want to hide it! If you have rotated teeth or a badly aligned bite, it’s time to correct it. You may have thought about orthodontics, but you don’t want to live with uncomfortable, unsightly brackets and wires for years. Well, now you don’t have to!
There is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that is quick, virtually invisible, and comfortable; it’s called Invisalign! Your dentists at Towne Centre Family Dental in Hillsborough, NJ want to help you discover the benefits and advantages of Invisalign.
People who might not have considered conventional braces are ready for straight smiles because of Invisalign. These are just a few of the important benefits and advantages of Invisalign:
- Discreet treatment, because the appliances are clear plastic and are virtually invisible to people around you
- Rapid treatment, because the entire Invisalign process takes between 9 and 15 months, compared to years for conventional braces
- Comfortable treatment, because the smooth plastic appliances have no sharp metal parts that can poke your cheeks, gums or lips
- Convenient treatment, because you can remove the Invisalign appliances to eat; you won’t get food caught in those annoying brackets and wires
- Healthy treatment, because you can remove the appliances to brush and floss your teeth normally; you can maintain a healthy smile with Invisalign
Invisalign treatment is beautiful and strong too! You can correct the same issues as conventional braces including badly positioned teeth, overbite, underbite, open bite and crossbite.
Invisalign treatment usually begins by whitening your teeth gradually while you wear your aligners for the first two weeks. Every week you will progress to a new set of aligners as your teeth and jaws gradually and comfortably move into place. Usually, you visit our office every 6 weeks so we can check on your progress and give you more aligners. Recent advancements in science have improved the aligner material so that teeth can move twice as fast!

Better Oral Hygiene
If you have a beautiful smile that you are proud of then it probably will come as no surprise that you will be more likely to take better care of it. Think about it: when you buy a new article of clothing or something you’ve been wanting for a while, you wear it with pride and probably take better care of it then something you’ve had in your closet for years.
The same principle goes for your smile. If you have a smile that you’ve worked hard to achieve through cosmetic dentistry then you’re probably going to be more likely to spend a bit more time flossing and brushing and providing your smile with the care it needs to prevent gum disease or other issues from ruining the smile you’ve worked hard for.
Did you know that crooked or misaligned smiles could increase your chances of decay or dental damage? It isn’t always easy to properly and thoroughly brush crowded or crooked surfaces and misaligned teeth can also undertake more pressure from the jaws then other teeth, which can lead to cracks, chips and fractures. By getting implants or Invisalign to straighten your smile, you can ensure that your teeth are healthy and that you reduce your risk for these common dental problems.
Does cosmetic dentistry sound like exactly what you’ve been looking for? We thought so! There has never been a more perfect time to turn to Towne Centre Family Dental in Hillsborough, NJ, to have all of your smile needs met.
How porcelain veneers from your Hillsborough, New Jersey dentists can help your smile
Do you wish your smile looked better? Are you embarrassed to smile because your teeth are cracked, chipped or yellow? Now you can improve your smile easily and quickly with porcelain veneers! Your dentists at Towne Centre Family Dental in Hillsborough, New Jersey want to help you discover the magic of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin laminates of beautiful, sparkling porcelain which are cemented onto the front surfaces of your teeth. They are a versatile dental treatment that can mask many imperfections in your teeth and your smile. Consider porcelain veneers if you have teeth that are:
- Excessively worn down due to aging or bad habits
- Badly chipped or cracked from an accident or injury
- Damaged or broken from an injury or trauma
- Heavily stained from medications, drinking coffee or smoking
- Unevenly spaced apart due to genetics
You can improve your smile with veneers by taking the first step, scheduling a consultation with your dentists at Towne Centre Family Dental. During your consultation, you and your dentist can discuss how your new veneers will look and what you can expect from treatment.
During your second appointment, your dentist will remove only a tiny amount of tooth structure, just enough to accommodate the thickness of the veneers. Molds are taken of your prepared teeth and sent to a dental laboratory, where skilled artisans create your new veneers.
At your next appointment, your new veneers are permanently cemented and you have a new smile! Porcelain veneer treatment is one of the most non-invasive, conservative dental treatments available and produces dazzling results.
