Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
At Morris County Dental Associates in Succasunna, Dr. Goldberg offers many types of cosmetic dentistry services including:
Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that cover teeth to improve their appearance. Typically, patients receive veneers to close spaces between teeth, improve chipped or misshapen teeth, or cover staining.
Crowns, also known as a cap, cover or encase the tooth in order to return it to it’s original shape. These restorative option are made from porcelain, metal, or a combination of the two materials. With proper care, crowns can last for up to 10 years.
Snap-on-Smile is an affordable option for patients looking to completely change their smile in as little as two visits. In addition, a Snap-On-Smile is a reversible appliance and is a non-invasive procedure for patients that do not want extensive dental work.
“Dr. Goldberg is very professional, thorough, and personable. He takes the time to answer questions, explain in detail the various procedures, discuss alternative treatments, and make recommendations for specialized treatment. I’ve been a patient of this office for more than 20 years, and this is the most welcoming office that I’ve visited. It’s always a pleasure to be here: the staff is very friendly, accommodating, skilled, courteous, and competent. I wish I could visit more than twice a year, but they do such a good job that it’s rarely necessary! Thank you!” – Anca I.
Dental implants are a replacement for missing teeth. These titanium or zirconia cylinders are often placed after tooth extraction and can be used to hold bridges or crowns in place. Multiple implants can be placed at once in what is referred to as an All-On-4 procedure in order to replace a full arch of teeth.
Teeth whitening can brighten your smile and eliminate staining. At Morris County Dental Associates, we offer a wide variety of whitening products inlcuding in-office and at-home treatment. With touch-up appointments and improved at-home care patients can expect their teeth to be several shades whiter and have lasting results.
The Pinhole® Surgical Technique
The Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive procedure that allows Dr. Goldberg to treat patients that are suffering from gum recession. Instead of sutures and gum grafting, Dr. Goldberg gently loosens the gum tissue through a pinhole incision. By simply adjusting the tissue patients can experience less discomfort, a quick recovery, and a long lasting solution.
Dentures are custom made artificial teeth and gums. Patients can receive partial or full dentures in order to replace teeth they have lost or had removed. Dentures can be removable or permanent and help to restore your smile.
Composite Tooth-Colored Fillings
A filling is a mixture that can be used to restore a decayed tooth. Fillings are commonly made of composite so they blend in with the natural surrounding teeth while also providing strength to the weakened tooth.
