DeFabio Dental Design, a Colts Neck dentist, offers a wide range of cosmetic dental services to our New Jersey patients. Dr. Edward DeFabio has been involved with cosmetic dentistry for many years. He trained with the pioneers of cosmetic dentistry, learning the best techniques to create beautiful, natural-looking smiles.

Dr. Erica DeFabio’s training integrates with her father's years of experience in cosmetic dentistry. This combination leads to the most amazing results for you.

Cosmetic Dentistry Services We Offer:
Dental implants are a wonderful cosmetic dentistry choice if you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth. Dental Implants can provide a fixed solution that can be more comfortable than removable options. Dental implants are titanium posts that anchor into your jaw bone and offer you the functions of a natural tooth root. While dental implants may not be the best cosmetic dentistry choice for everyone, they are the perfect solution for many who seek to regain function and also the look of completely natural teeth.
The dental implant restorations we offer are state-of-the-art and set us apart from other New Jersey cosmetic dentists. Each restoration is custom-designed to match your teeth and your mouth. We work with some of the finest dental laboratories and technicians in the country to provide you with the most beautiful, natural-looking ceramics. While many cosmetic dentist practices offer less expensive dental implant restorations, ours are customized to each patient to ensure you get the highest quality dental implant restorations in New Jersey.
A dental bridge is an option we offer to replace a missing tooth or teeth when a dental implant is not the right choice for your cosmetic dentistry goals. When the jaw bone is not healthy enough to anchor the titanium post, if there are underlying medical conditions, or if surgery isn’t possible, a dental bridge is a great fixed tooth replacement option. It is secured to the healthy teeth on both sides of the space and looks natural.
Your dental bridge treatment is completed in as little as two office visits by one of our New Jersey cosmetic dentists, Dr. Edward DeFabio or Dr. Erica DeFabio. During the first office visit, we prepare the surrounding teeth and shape them for the bridge. We then make an impression that we send to our dental laboratory so they can begin creating your bridge. We place a provisional acrylic bridge while your custom bridge is being designed.
In about 2-3 weeks, when the new dental bridge arrives from the laboratory we schedule your second visit. This is when we check the fit and look of the restorations before placing your new dental bridge.
When many people think of dental crowns they associate them with a treatment necessary after root canal therapy. While this is a common indication for crowns, it is not the only one. You may need a dental crown when you have large parts of your tooth missing, if you have a very large dental filling, or if your tooth is severely discolored. They can also be used to strengthen weak teeth to prevent breaking and cracking.
Like a dental bridge, a crown is often completed in two office visits by one of our top New Jersey cosmetic dentists, Dr. Edward DeFabio or Dr. Erica DeFabio. At your first visit, we assess your tooth using x-rays. We prepare your tooth for a dental crown then make impressions that we send to our dental laboratory. We take photos and select a shade for the porcelain that blends with your neighboring teeth. Taking time to color match allows us to design a dental crown that is truly natural-looking. While the crown is being fabricated by our laboratory, we place a provisional crown.
Once the new dental crown arrives we schedule your second appointment with your cosmetic dentist. During this visit, we make sure that the fit and color are perfect before cementing your new crown.
If you don’t need a full crown to return function and appearance, porcelain veneers are a great option. Porcelain veneers consist of a thin, yet strong shell that fits over your current teeth. Porcelain is the best material for veneers as it provides the most natural-looking smile. You can consider a porcelain veneer when you want to improve your smile by hiding gaps, cracks, or stains. By using porcelain veneers, we are able to craft a stunning new smile that hides any flaws.
We begin with a full assessment of your current smile and discuss your goals. If veneers are a viable option for you, we begin by reshaping your tooth surfaces. We do this so the veneers will fit seamlessly over your current teeth. We then place provisional veneers while we await delivery of your custom porcelain veneers from our dental laboratory.
On delivery day, we remove your provisional veneers. We then try the porcelain veneers to make sure they fit perfectly and look beautiful. We lightly etch your teeth to prepare and clean them before expertly bonding the veneers with a curing light. You leave with your new, natural, and stunning smile.
Who doesn’t want a bright and beaming smile? Over time our teeth lose the shine and luster that we want. Daily habits that may include coffee, tea, wine, or tobacco can cause our teeth to become yellow and get stained over the years. This is when teeth whitening treatments are recommended. Throughout our years of offering cosmetic dentistry, we have tried and tested every tooth whitening system on the market. In our opinion, the very best is the KoR Whitening System. It proves to be the most effective and reliable treatment that will give you a lighter, brighter smile. Our cosmetic dentistry patients are stunned at the difference they experience with this tooth whitening system.
Restorative Cosmetic Dentistry
We specialize in large-scale, comprehensive oral restorations. This is for people with many missing teeth, changes in their bite over time, or serious jaw issues. For these patients, we develop a custom treatment plan to bring back their function and improve their smile. We begin with an assessment. Together with our patients, we develop a strategy to begin the restoration process. We collaborate with other dental specialists and coordinate treatment to make this process as simple as possible. These are often long-term treatments that get broken up into different phases. In the end, you will regain your function and have the smile of your dreams.
