Are you ready to get a smile that you can’t wait to show off?cosmetic dentistry

Our Medford, NJ, dentist Dr. Henry Finger can offer restorations and procedures that provide you with the most realistic cosmetic work available. No one will ever know that your smile isn’t all yours but they will notice that your smile is improved. Here’s how cosmetic dentistry can help you:

Get Rid of Dental Stains

Tooth enamel is porous, which means that teeth absorb the foods and drinks we consume over time, leading to stains and discolorations. Everything from red wine and dark condiments to coffee and tea can be responsible for these stains, but luckily tooth discolorations can be reversed with professional teeth whitening treatment. Whether you choose to come into our office for chairside whitening (which offers the fastest and most visible results) or at-home whitening treatment, our Medford, NJ, dentist can help.

Restore Imperfections

Whether you have a small chip in your front tooth or a malformed tooth, there are cosmetic treatments that can help cover those flaws (and more!). If you have minor gaps between teeth, or chips and cracks, dental bonding resin may be all that’s needed to close gaps and cover chips and cracks. If more serious imperfections are there, thin porcelain shells known as dental veneers can be bonded to the front of your teeth.

Improve the Alignment of Your Smile

Sometimes minor misalignments such as crooked teeth or gaps between teeth can be fixed with dental veneers rather than wearing orthodontic treatment. While your natural teeth won’t be straighter, veneers can be bonded to the front of your teeth to achieve the look of a straighter smile.

Turn Tooth Loss Back into a Tooth Gain

If you are missing one or more permanent teeth and want the next best thing to real teeth then look no further than dental implants, which not just look like but also function like real teeth. These small metal implants are surgically placed into the jawbone to replace missing tooth roots, providing a long-term and stable foundation from which to support a false tooth (usually a dental crown).

Are you interested in discovering what cosmetic dentistry can do for you? If so, then it’s time to talk to our dental expert Dr. Henry Finger at Medford, NJ. We would be happy to discuss your goals to help you achieve the smile you want through cosmetic dentistry.

It’s time to find out how dental veneers can give you the smile you want.veneers

Have you always wondered how your favorite actor or actress has the perfect teeth? Do you want a smile that you feel confident showing off? If so, our Medford, NJ, family dentist Dr. Henry Finger has just the thing to help you get a smile that will look just as perfect as your favorite Hollywood stars.

What are dental veneers?

Veneers are specially crafted porcelain shells that are affixed to the front surface of each tooth to hide a variety of cosmetic imperfections. Each veneer is custom-made based on measurements taken of your smile and the medical-grade porcelain that’s used even mimics the look of natural tooth enamel, so no one will even be able to tell that you have dental veneers.

What are the benefits of getting these restorations?

There are a lot of benefits to getting dental veneers:

Hide Dental Flaws

Veneers are able to cover a multitude of cosmetic problems with your smile. In fact, veneers might just be the best way for you to mask,

Stains and discolorations that teeth whitening can’t treat:

  • Chips, cracks and fractures
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen, worn or uneven teeth
  • Teeth that are too short (veneers can help lengthen them)
  • Minor crowding and crookedness

Skip the Braces

Obviously, from the list above, you can see that veneers can hide just about any aesthetic problem you are having with your smile. Furthermore, if you are an adult who loathes the idea of wearing braces, especially to treat very minor misalignments (e.g. gaps between teeth; crowding) then you might not even need orthodontic treatment when you get veneers. Veneers can help give you the straighter smile you want without all the waiting or awkward metal braces.

Simple, Easy Treatment

Some people shy away from cosmetic dentistry because they worry that it will require a lot of alterations and preparation. Don’t worry. Getting veneers is simple and can be completed in about two to three visits. After your consultation, we will need to shave down a very small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth. This isn’t painful and it can usually be done without even needing local anesthesia. This is much simpler than getting dental crowns, which requires us to remove an extensive amount of the tooth prior to placing the restoration.

Are you ready to say “yes” to dental veneers? If so, the next step is to schedule a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Finger to find out how we can help you get your dream smile. Call our Medford, NJ, dental office to learn more.

Tooth loss doesn’t have to cause more serious complications for your implants

While we know the frustration that comes with losing teeth as an adult it’s important that you seek treatment as soon as possible to ensure that no other complications befall your smile. Luckily, our Medford, NJ family dentist Dr. Henry Finger has just the answer you’ve been looking for to replace your missing tooth or teeth.

An implant is a small titanium post that takes on the role of tooth roots and provides a sturdy and permanent base from which to support a false tooth or teeth. As you may imagine, this unique tooth replacement offers a lot of wonderful benefits for your smile.

Prevent Misalignments

If you leave gaps in your smile your natural teeth will begin to shift into these spaces. As a result, a lot of people with untreated tooth loss also end up needing orthodontic treatment in order to fix this issue. Placing a dental implant as soon as possible prevents teeth from having the chance to shift out of place.

Protect Your Bone Health

In order for an implant to be successful as your artificial tooth roots, it needs to be placed into the jawbone. Once the implant is in the jawbone it will begin to fuse together with it over time. As you might imagine, this implant is now providing the bone with the stimulation it needs to prevent deterioration.

Eliminate Denture Problems

People dealing with extensive tooth loss may find it easier to just choose dentures. Unfortunately, a lot of people have misconceptions about denture and find themselves disappointed when this prosthetic can’t help them enjoy all their favorite foods or when it shifts around unexpectedly. But did you know that implants also support dentures? That’s right! Implants can be placed throughout the jawbone to support dentures so that even those dealing with total tooth loss can still get the stable smiles they want without denture-related problems.

Boost Your Confidence

As you might imagine, having a full smile that you feel comfortable showing off is a major boon not just to your professional life but also your personal life. With implants, you can trust that your restoration functions and looks just like a natural tooth so the only person who will know that you have an implant is you.

Do you think you could be a great candidate for dental implants? Want to sit down with our Medford, NJ, family dentist to find out if implants could get you back that beautiful smile? Then what are you waiting for? Call our office to schedule your consultation.
