Cosmetic Dentistry ResultsThe cosmetic appeal of your smile can affect everything from the relationships that you develop to the type of job you're ultimately hired for. It's the first thing that people see when you come face-to-face with them. For these reasons and more, it is worth taking a little time out of your schedule to consult with Dr. Carrie Polster, a dentist serving Midland Park, NJ, about your cosmetic dentistry options 

How Do You Feel About Your Smile?
A study published by Kelton Research confirmed that having a nice smile has a direct effect on your social and professional interactions with others. But what other people think about your teeth doesn't compare to how you feel about your smile. Everyday you have to wake up and look at your teeth and if you are not happy with it, take action. Explore the various cosmetic dentistry options that could significantly improve the way your smile looks. In some cases, a dentist can improve your smile in as little as one appointment.

Cosmetic Dentistry Options

- Dental bonding and contouring of the teeth that show when you smile.
- Dental veneers that cover the front teeth.
- Dental crowns that cover the whole tooth when it is damaged or darkening in color (Dr. Polster offers CEREC same day crowns at her Midland Park, NJ dentist office).
- Teeth whitening that scrubs away years of stains in about an hour.
- Cosmetic fillings as an alternative to metal amalgam fillings.
- Specialty dentures to fill smile gaps.

You don’t only have to visit the dentist when you’re experiencing a tooth problem. You can go for a consultation at any time to discuss how your smile can look better. Don’t give up on your smile, no matter how it looks at the present moment. There may be a simple cosmetic solution that will give your smile new life.

There's no need to settle for a smile that doesn't live up to your expectations. Thanks to cosmetic dentistry, it's easier than ever to cosmetic dentistryimprove your smile. Dr. Carrie Polster, your Midland Park, NJ dentist, shares information about several popular cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Teeth whitening

Have you ever looked at old photograph of yourself and wondered what happened to your teeth? Aging and stains caused by drinking wine, coffee, tea and cola can make your teeth look dull and yellow. If you have just one hour to spare, you can lighten your teeth by three to eight shades with a professional in-office teeth whitening treatment. We also provide take-home trays to keep your teeth white. Your Midland Park dentist also offers take-home kits if you prefer to whiten your teeth at home.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers offer one of the more innovative ways to change the appearance of your teeth. These thin porcelain shells fit over the front of teeth and cover a variety of flaws. Chips, discolorations, gaps and crooked teeth disappear the moment your dentist attaches the veneers to your teeth. They're also a good alternative to teeth whitening and can offer dramatic results.

Crowns and bridges

Crowns and bridges are an excellent choice if you've lost a tooth or need to restore a damaged or broken tooth. Crowns are designed to fit over your teeth and cover all sides of a tooth, unlike veneers that only cover the front surfaces of teeth. Dentists use them to support teeth weakened by cracks and dental procedures, restore short or broken teeth, and hide imperfections.

Multiple crowns make up a bridge and are used to replace missing teeth. Artificial teeth are suspended between two crowns that that support your bridge.

Composite bonding

Tooth-colored composite resin repairs chips and other defects, fills gaps, builds up teeth that have become eroded and can even change the shape of teeth. The resin can be molded into any shape, but hardens quickly after it's applied to your teeth.

Dental implants

It used to be that once a tooth was gone, it was gone for good, but that's no longer true, thanks to dental implants. Implants replace your entire tooth from the roots to the crown. This long-lasting replacement option will definitely give you something to smile about.

Cosmetic dentistry treatments can revitalize your smile in just one or two visits. Call Dr. Polster, your Midland Park, NJ dentist, at (201) 444-5675 to schedule your appointment.
