Tooth Whitening

Tooth Whitening is the cosmetic process using a peroxide based gel to make teeth look whiter. The material removes stains or other discolorations from the tooth surface. Our office uses a tray technique to remove the effects of coffee, cigarettes, and other substances that permanently stain or discolor teeth. Aging is another reason for tooth discoloration, causing them to become yellow and brown.

We use a professional gel and tray technique that is ADA and FDA approved. The hydrogen peroxide based gel also contains fluoride to assure decreased sensitivity.The process is totally safe and does not affect the integrity of the tooth. Please call our office in Westfield, NJ for a free consultation. Tooth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that is not covered by any dental insurance company.
 
 
 

Crowns

A crown is a cap that is placed over the surface of a tooth. This cap is in a tooth shape. It helps strengthen and protect your tooth. Crowns are created in a way that makes them look like your own, natural tooth.
 
 
 

Bridges

A dental bridge, or bridge, helps fill the gap between missing teeth. A bridge is usually needed after the loss of a tooth.When the tooth is missing, your other teeth can move to fill the empty space. A bridge is used to keep your other teeth in place. When a bridge is in place, it works, looks, and feels just like a regular tooth.
 
 
 
 
 

Dentures

Dentures are ideal replacements for missing teeth. Dentures are removable and function similarly to bridges. Dentures are available in both full and partial sizes.
 
 
 

Extractions

Dental extractions are recommended if a tooth or teeth are not able to be restored by any other means. Dental extractions are also common to remove problematic wisdom teeth. Our professional staff will consult with you if we believe a dental extraction is needed.
 
 
 

Root Canals

When a tooth's "pulp" or tissues, nerves, and blood vessels surrounding your tooth becomes infected, a root canal is usually needed. By having a root canal in Westfield, NJ, you will be able to keep your natural tooth. This is beneficial because it still has the natural feeling and function after the procedure.

Root canals are usually completed quickly, within one or two appointments. At our dental practice, you can always expect an easy and comfortable process before and after your root canal procedure.
