New Jersey Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry
Dental implants are a wonderful advanced 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. It is cosmetic dentistry at it's finest.
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 and other cosmetic dentistry problems.
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 and completing your smile makeover.
If you don’t need a full dental crown to return function and appearance and dental bonding isn't a good fit then porcelain veneers are a great cosmetic dentistry 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 makeover. You can consider porcelain veneers when you want to improve your smile by hiding gaps, crooked teeth, 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 porcelain veneers are a viable option for you, we begin by reshaping your tooth surfaces. We do this so the porcelain 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 porcelain veneers with a curing light. You leave with your new, natural, and stunning smile with our porcelain veneers.
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 teeth whitening system on the market. In our opinion, the very best teeth whitening treatment is the KoR Whitening System. It proves to be the most effective and reliable teeth whitening treatment that will give you a lighter, brighter smile. Our cosmetic dentistry patients are stunned at the difference they experience with this teeth whitening system and their smile makeover.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment that can be used to repair cracked and chipped teeth, fill in gaps between teeth, and even make a tooth that is short than the rest longer. Cosmetic dental bonding isn't right for every challenge. In some cases, a dental implant is the best cosmetic dental option. It is a quick procedure that doesn't typically require anesthesia. The most important and artistic aspect of dental bonding is getting the resin color to match your other teeth. The resin is then added and a UV light is used. Then the resin can be shaped as needed right in our cosmetic dentistry office.
Our Father/Daughter team of New Jersey cosmetic dentists specialize in large-scale, comprehensive restorative dentistry. 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 cosmetic dentistry treatment plan to bring back their function and improve their smiles. We begin with an assessment. Together with our patients, we develop a strategy to begin the restorative dentistry process. We collaborate with other New Jersey dental specialists and coordinate treatment to make this process as simple as possible. These are often long-term cosmetic dentistry treatments that get broken up into different phases. In the end, you will regain your function and have the smile of your dreams.

Commonly Asked Questions
What makes a dentist a cosmetic dentist?
Cosmetic dentistry is performed by a dentist that specializes in advanced cosmetic dentistry. While general dentistry deals with aspects involving oral health and function cosmetic dentistry focus on dental procedures that improve both the look and the function of a smile.
General dentistry is what helps maintain your oral health and solve dental pain and discomfort whereas cosmetic dentistry helps to fix things like cracked or chipped teeth, missing teeth, teeth whitening, and anything that improved the look of your smile.
They both have the same training. So a cosmetic dentist is also a general dentist and often vice versa.
What kinds of procedures do cosmetic dentists do?
Cosmetic dentistry procedures encompass many different treatments ranging from very basic dental treatments like teeth whitening to advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures like dental bonding, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, and dental implants.
Experience really matters when it comes to the quality of the work. Choosing a cosmetic dentist with decades of experience means that they are more apt to offer beautiful smile makeovers.
How do I choose the best cosmetic dentist?
With so many New Jersey dental offices offering both general and cosmetic dentistry it can be hard to choose the best cosmetic treatment. If you are nervous about dental procedures then we recommend you find a cosmetic dentist that specializes in gentle dentistry.
While your dental team doesn't have to be the closest it is ideal to choose one that is not too far from where you live.
Your budget also plays a large role in choosing the best cosmetic dentistry provider. Many of the top cosmetic dentists are Fee For Service meaning they do not directly accept insurance but instead submit your claim for you. This should not be seen as a deal-breaker, as often the amount a patient pays out of pocket is similar to what their copay would be, and often an FFS provides better dental services.
When exploring prospective dentists for the best NJ cosmetic dentist for you be sure to read patient reviews and look at some of their before and after work.
