Other Forms of Cosmetic Dentistry We Offer in Jersey City
In addition to Invisalign®, Journal Square Dental offers a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures. As part of our Smile Makeover package, we are here to help you reach your desired aesthetic outcome. These procedures can be done in tandem with your Invisalign® and can include the following:
For those with discoloration or stained teeth, we offer teeth brightening options to help restore your natural look and color. Over time, even with proper brushing and flossing, your teeth can begin to yellow and fade. Certain foods and activities, like smoking, often expedite this process. Our teeth whitening services remove your surface stains and offer up to eight different shades.
If you are in need of a dental implant, we will often do your teeth whitening first to ensure your crowns match your newly brightened smile.
Dental bonding, also known as composite bonding or teeth bonding, is the process of using an adhesion to help repair any chips or cracks in your teeth. The material is very close to that of a filling you would receive for a cavity, though dental bonding is purely a cosmetic procedure. This is a bit of a cheaper option than receiving veneers and helps to achieve the same results.
With good oral maintenance and occasional touch ups, your dental bonding can help restore the natural look of your teeth.
If you have crooked teeth, discoloration, or chips, your dentist may discuss the potential benefits of veneers with you. While Invisalign® is designed to straighten your natural teeth, veneers are a custom-made porcelain cap that goes over your teeth. The thin material may require you shave down some of your enamel to provide a natural fit, though sometimes that is not the case.
Veneers can help fix minor misalignments and small gaps. They are not the best option for someone who needs extensive work on their bite or has very crooked teeth.
