Is Cosmetic Dentistry Right for Me?

Are you ashamed of your smile? Do you have injured or missing teeth and want to restore your dental glory? Let Dr. Marco Fernandez of Advanced Family Dentistry, your best source for cosmetic dentistry in Parsippany, NJ, help you fix your smile.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic Dentistry focuses on the aesthetic appearance of your teeth, mouth, and gums. Dentists in this specialty often fix cracks, whiten teeth, straighten a jagged tooth or replace missing teeth.

Dr. Fernandez is highly trained in advanced general dentistry as well as implant dentistry. As an experienced family dentist, he uses the latest technology, such as Waterlase, to treat patients of all ages. You can rest assured that your dental care is in good hands at his office.

If you have missing teeth, discoloration, unsightly gaps, or a very gummy smile, it may be time to pay a visit to your cosmetic dentistry specialist in Parsippany, NJ today.

Which Procedure is Best For My Needs?

If your teeth are discolored or stained, you will most likely choose one of the following two procedures:

Whitening

If your only dental issue pertains to discolored or stained chompers, your dental specialist can brighten your smile through various methods such as bleaching, light, or lasers

Veneers

If you want white teeth that will last decades and have a high budget, you may consider veneers. Thin custom-made porcelain shells are placed on your natural teeth with adhesive. For cracks, chips, or extensive discoloration, veneers may be an ideal solution.

Missing teeth are a far more complex and expensive problem. Your cosmetic specialist may perform the following procedure:

Implants 

First, a metal post is implanted into your jaw. Once healed, a fake tooth is inserted into the post. A full set of implants can add up to tens of thousands of dollars.

Dentures

Unlike implants or bridges, dentures are removable as they are prosthetic devices. A patient may have a partial denture for a few teeth or a full set for the entire mouth.

Bridges

This procedure's name comes from the role of the nearest intact teeth. The two teeth between a missing tooth serve as a bridge for its replacement. Both supporting teeth are crowned, and the false tooth is inserted in the space between them.

If you are ready for a smile makeover, call (973) 263-7300. Your cosmetic dentist in Parsippany, NJ, Dr. Fernandez of Advanced Family Dentistry, can help you.
