Find out how our dental team can give you the perfect smile right here in Hillsborough, NJ.
There are so many health benefits associated with smiling. Not to mention that people who have beautiful smiles were seen as more attractive, successful and even younger. So, if you don’t have a smile that you feel confident showing off, our Hillsborough, NJ, dentists can certainly help you get there with these popular cosmetic dentistry options:
Bonding is a non-invasive cosmetic technique that involves applying a tooth-colored resin to the edges of a tooth that is cracked or chipped. It can also be used to cover a discoloration or to close small spaces between teeth. Bonding can also make worn teeth appear longer. It usually takes about 30 minutes to complete the bonding procedure and if it’s used for purely cosmetic reasons then anesthesia will not be necessary. In fact, bonding is one of the most cost-effective and least invasive cosmetic dental treatment you can get.
Contouring is another simple technique that is used to reshape teeth. Like bonding, contouring is designed to fix minor imperfections such as tiny chips, slightly overlapping teeth and excessively sharp teeth. Contouring involves shaving off small amounts of tooth enamel to reshape the tooth and buff away certain defects. Contouring may also be combined with bonding to improve the shape or size of your teeth.
Veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain or ceramic shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth to cover a wide range of cosmetic problems. This includes everything from discolorations and chips to slightly crooked teeth or gaps between teeth. Veneers are a great option for widespread dental issues, altering the overall shape, size, color, and alignment of one or more teeth. Once veneers are bonded they can last about 10 years before needing to be replaced.
Many people turn to our Hillsborough, NJ, cosmetic dentists for teeth whitening. That is because this simple in-office procedure could get your teeth several shades whiter in about one hour. The whitening gel applied to teeth contains a very high percentage of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which means that it doesn’t need to remain on teeth for a very long time to be able to break up stains and brighten teeth.
