Teeth Whitening with Zoom!® in Montvale, NJ
Whiter teeth can have an incredibly positive effect on your smile, and this is one of the most straightforward procedures our team handles. There are many reasons why your teeth change color. The primary cause of staining is exposure to darkly colored drinks and foods. Enamel stains often become more visible with time, requiring repeat treatment.
We use a professional bleaching gel to remove these stubborn stains and restore your naturally white teeth. Other causes of dental discoloration include acid reflux, accident, medications, and teeth grinding. If the discoloration is severe, you can opt for a different cosmetic procedure such as veneers. We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options for your convenience. Remember, tooth whitening works on natural teeth only. Replace old crowns, fillings and other restorations after whitening, so they match your newly whitened teeth.
Benefits of Professional Take-Home Whitening Kits
If your busy schedule makes office visits a challenge, our take-home whitening kit might be your best solution. The procedure requires only one brief visit to our office to take the impressions for your customized whitening tray. When they are ready, you will pick your trays and use them at your convenience. We will show you how to properly use the kit and provide additional whitening gel in the future.
Two short sessions a day for approximately two weeks will deliver noticeable results. You might experience sensitivity during the treatment period. We highly recommend the use of sensitivity relief toothpaste before and during the process. Teeth whitening is not permanent, but you can extend the results by avoiding dark foods and drinks. If you can’t avoid them altogether, rinse your mouth after a meal and brush your teeth regularly. Visit our practice at least once every six months for professional cleaning.
Composite fillings, unlike silver amalgam fillings, are tooth-colored and can be matched to the color of your existing enamel. They are also an excellent choice for repairing front teeth and other areas visible when you smile. Like other dental restorations, you may have to replace composite fillings over time. However, if you maintain proper dental hygiene and visit our specialists regularly for professional cleaning, they can last for more than a decade.
The Composite Filling Procedure
We can complete a filling procedure in one dental visit. Our dentist will remove any decay and clean the gap left before adding the composite filling. We use a particular medication when necessary for added protection. Then the filling is formed and polished to restore your tooth to its natural shape. You might experience some sensitivity to cold or hot stimuli after the treatment. However, this feeling will subside as your tooth adjusts to the new filling.
Composite fillings are flexible and bond directly to your natural tooth, unlike amalgam filing. We can preserve more of your tooth structure with this procedure because it requires less enamel removal. Composite can also be used to repair cracks and chips on your teeth. The material can fill small spaces and is hardly noticeable.
Porcelain veneers are custom colored shells specially designed to cover the front tooth surface. They can change the size, length, shape, and color of your damaged tooth to restore your beautiful smile. Veneers are a perfect alternative to crowns and can be used to fix many conditions, including:
- Deep Stains
- Chips and Cracks
- Minor Misalignment
- Unwanted Spaces
Veneers are fabricated from porcelain material. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than composite bonding and also feature light-reflecting properties, just like natural teeth. You are a candidate for veneers if your teeth have minor cosmetic defects, and your overall dental health is good. Those who grind and clench their teeth are poor candidates since this can damage veneers. Porcelain veneers last for approximately 7 to 15 years. However, with proper oral hygiene practices like flossing, brushing, and professional cleaning, they can last longer. It is best to avoid using your teeth as tools for additional protection.
Teeth can withstand a lot of pressure but are still susceptible to damage. Our team can use porcelain crowns to restore their look and function. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that we place on your damaged tooth. They encase the entire visible structure of the tooth above the gum line. There are different types of dental crowns; however, porcelain is the most popular since they match the color of your natural teeth. A crown can:
- Protect a weak tooth
- Restore function and appearance
- Support a dental bridge
- Complete a dental implant
- Repair discolored or misshaped teeth
Porcelain crowns are highly durable and can preserve your tooth for many years. Their lifespan depends on how well you maintain oral hygiene practices. Avoid bad habits such as chewing ice, using teeth to open bottles, clenching, grinding, or biting fingernails to extend the lifespan of your crowns.
Veneers vs. Crowns
Both crowns and veneers will restore your smile and the function of your teeth. The significant difference is that crowns encase the entire tooth while veneers only cover the front part. Crowns last longer than veneers and may protect your teeth from further decay. But, crowns involve more enamel removal. Whichever procedure you choose, our team of experts will offer an exemplary service.
Cosmetic Gum Treatments
Gum contouring is a cosmetic procedure that focuses on the shape and overall appearance of your gums. If your gums lie too low or too high on your teeth, you are a perfect candidate for gum contouring. The treatment plan is often used to remove excess gum tissue that covers part of your tooth to best fit a new crown.
Healthy gums will improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile. We offer effective periodontal treatments to restore gum health and build a foundation for long-term functional and cosmetic results.
