Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on enhancing the appearance of a patient's teeth and smile. Many of these treatment options are elective and while they may not improve the use or care of your teeth, they do enable you to feel better about the way you look. Castillo and Mulkay Dental is a leading dentistry in New Jersey for cosmetic dentistry in North Bergen and Passaic.

Fillings, crowns and bridges are often considered part of cosmetic dentistry because they restore your teeth's natural look through the use of porcelain or other composite materials that are close in color to your own teeth. The result is a more natural appearance than what you would find with traditional dental fillings from the past.

Some of the treatments listed under cosmetic dentistry today include the following:

  • Inlays and onlays – these fillings are made from composite materials and fitted to your teeth and bonded in place by your primary care dentist.
  • Teeth Whitening – Professional teeth whitening helps restore the natural whiteness to the tooth that may have been lost as a result of medications, food, drink smoking or even poor hygiene.
  • Dental Veneers – Made of porcelain or composite material, the veneers are bonded to the tooth surface to repair cracks in the teeth or chipped teeth. They may also be used for severe discoloration.
  • Bonding – teeth that are broken, chipped or discolored may be restored through bonding. The composite material looks like enamel and dentin, which is applied either to the surface of the tooth or to the cavity where it is molded into place and hardened for long-term wear. It blends in with the rest of your teeth for a natural smile.

In addition, more permanent procedures may be chosen to restore a healthy smile. For instance, dental implants are a permanent alternative to dentures, which can help you look younger and healthier.

Full reconstruction of the mouth may be necessary if the patient has problems with the muscles and bone structure of the mouth. The result is natural-looking so no one is even aware you had any procedure done. A smile makeover is another part of cosmetic dentistry, which may include multiple dental procedures to help you enjoy the final results of a beautiful smile and healthy-looking teeth.

If you're unhappy with your smile or have discomfort as a result of bite issues or bone or muscle problems, cosmetic dentistry may be the answer for you.
