Halloween just passed us by, November is upon us, so that can mean only one thing: the holidays are around the corner. And with the holidays come all of the family gatherings, office parties and other opportunities for photos and Facebook posts. To make sure your smile looks as attractive as possible, you may want to make an appointment for a cosmetic dentistry service with Dr. Robert Young, the dentist Manahawkin, NJ, residents turn to for comprehensive general and restorative dentistry, too. Regardless, of the imperfections in your smile, we have the treatment that will take your smile from drab to dazzling.
By far the most popular, convenient and cost-effective cosmetic dentistry service we offer is teeth whitening. With time, teeth may become discolored because of dark-colored foods and beverages, tobacco products, traumatic injuries and the unavoidable aging process. We offer both a fast in-office treatment as well as take-home teeth whitening kits. With Zoom! teeth whitening, you can be in and out of our Manahawkin dental office in about an hour with teeth that are up to eight shades whiter. We’ll apply the Zoom! whitening gel to your teeth and activate the speedy bleaching process with a special light. Your white smile will last for years, and we’ll give you custom-fitted trays and gel to use periodically for touch-up treatments.
For patients who would rather whiten in the convenience and privacy of home, we have take-home whitening kits. These kits include custom mouth trays and professional strength whitening gel. Fill the trays and wear them according to Dr. Young’s instructions. You may see results immediately with the most notice change happening after two weeks.
With cosmetic bonding, Dr. Young can repair a tooth that is chipped, slightly cracked or broken, misshaped or somewhat crooked. He’ll use the same composite resin material that is used to fill a tooth-colored filling. This strong material starts out as a putty-like substance that Dr. Young molds and sculpts to correct your tooth. Hardened with a special curing light, cosmetic bonding can last for years. You’ll take care of your cosmetically bonded tooth similarly to your other teeth with regular brushing and flossing. Do try to avoid biting on hard objects, such as nuts and ice, with a tooth that has undergone cosmetic bonding.
If your smile is marred by several different cosmetic imperfections, then consider porcelain veneers. These cosmetic wonders are made of dental porcelain and are custom-crafted to correct each individual flaw in your smile. Have one tooth that is broken? Dr. Young will specify a veneer to repair that tooth. Is another tooth misshaped or misaligned? After preparing the tooth, the porcelain veneer Dr. Young bonds to the tooth will correct the flaw and enhance your smile. You’ll have an entirely new and beautiful smile with porcelain veneers.
