Want a more beautiful smile? Your dentist in Wall, NJ, Dr. Joseph Pollak, understands the importance of having great looking smile, which is why he offers numerous cosmetic dental procedures, including:
Dental Implants: A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw to replace missing tooth root, thereby creating stability and strength to prevent the weakening and shrinkage of the jawbone. The dentist then seals your gums and allows 3 to 6 months for osseointegration to occur. After this period, your dentist then re-opens the area above the titanium post, inserts a screw, places an abutment above the screw, and finishes the treatment by securing a crown on top that matches the rest of your teeth.
Some advantages of dental implants include:
- Restoring one tooth, a few teeth, or all of your teeth for up to a lifetime
- Reenabling your biting and chewing function.
- Unlike dentures, dental implants are fixed in and don't fall out of place.
Tooth Contouring and Reshaping: These are two simple cosmetic procedures that will save you plenty of time and money while providing you with a more confident smile. Contouring and reshaping help fix many teeth issues, including crooked, pits and/or grooves in enamel, as well as chipped, cracked, fractured, overlapping, and crowded teeth.
Veneers: Veneers resurface an individual's damaged teeth. This irreversible process entails that a dentist remove some enamel from the front of your teeth in order to place veneers made out of thin porcelain on the surface. These veneers then conceal stained, discolored, crooked, chipped, and any otherwise mishappened teeth.
Crowns: Crowns look like caps and are made of porcelain. Dental crowns reinforce teeth, allowing them to withstand various degrees of pressure. To procure them, our dentist takes an impression of your teeth and sends them to a lab where the custom crowns are made just for you. Crowns are also used for several other procedures, such as attaching bridges, covering dental implants, and covering stained teeth.
