Unfortunately, it’s possible for your teeth to become damaged because of decay or trauma. It may feel like there’s no way to get back the smile you once loved, but there are options to repair your damaged smile. Dr. Steven Abrams in New Jersey, NJ, offers dental crowns to restore your damaged tooth and give you a strong smile that you can be proud of!

Dental crowns from your dentist in New Jersey, NJ, can restore and strengthen a weakened tooth. They are used to completely cover your damaged tooth, giving it protection from any further damage. This will also reinforce your tooth and make it easy to bite and chew again, giving you the ability to enjoy the foods you may have been avoiding.

Dental crowns can be made of multiple materials, but are often made from porcelain, which looks like your enamel because it is light reflective. Crowns flawlessly blend into your smile, giving you a completely natural look. They are custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of the rest of your teeth.

With proper care, your dental crown can last for years without adjustments. Luckily, caring for your crown is easy. As long as you brush and floss daily, as well as visit your dentist for regular checkups, your crown should stay clean and free of any further issues.

Are you a candidate for dental implants?

When you are missing teeth, it is critical to replace them. Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can be challenging, as well as uncomfortable. Missing teeth can also destabilize your bite. Dental implants are a great option for replacing teeth that are missing or are badly diseased. A dental implant offers relief, support, and stability to your bite, and often, implants are the most natural and effective option available.

Dr. Steven Abrams has helped many patients using implant dentistry at our Mt. Olive Township, NJ, office restore their smiles to look more natural. Each implant is created to fit in perfectly with the look of the rest of your teeth.

Besides making your smile appear more natural, dental implants have other benefits. They include:

  • Restoring your ability to properly chew food
  • Preventing your teeth from shifting and moving
  • Stabilizing your bite, helping you avoid pain or discomfort

If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth and feel like you are a candidate for dental implants, Dr. Steven Abrams and our team in Mt. Olive Township, NJ, encourage you to give us a call to schedule an appointment at 973-691-8200.

Are missing teeth affecting your confidence and preventing you from smiling? Missing teeth affect the look and function of your smile. Dr. Steven Abrams offers dental implants in Budd Lake, NJ, also serving Mt. Olive Township, NJ, to give you a complete and beautiful smile.

Dental implants are an option when you need to replace a single tooth or when you are missing several teeth in different areas of your mouth. This treatment involves surgically placing a titanium post into your jaw bone. A replacement tooth is then attached to the post creating a complete tooth. Implants can be topped with dental crowns, implant-supported bridges, or implant-supported dentures, making them very versatile.

What Are the Main Advantages of Dental Implants?

If you have lost a tooth, the jawbone is no longer stimulated, which signals to the body that the bone should be reabsorbed. A major benefit of dental implants is that they preserve bone because they act just like your missing tooth roots. Their placement in the bone also ensures that they are very strong and will not move around while you eat or speak.

Your teeth support your facial muscles, and this is compromised if you have gaps in your smile. Dental implants make sure that your muscles are supported, which prevents sunken cheeks that can make you look older prematurely. Dental implants also prevent your teeth from shifting into the gaps in your smile, which would affect your tooth alignment.

Are You A Candidate for Dental Implants?

Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants. Missing teeth come with other side effects like bone loss. If you don’t have enough bone density to support an implant, you will have to look into getting a bone graft first. Smoking will interfere with the healing process, so you should quit before getting implants. Another thing to consider is your oral health. Any problems with your gums or cavities in your teeth need to be addressed before you get dental implants in Budd Lake, NJ, also serving Mt. Olive Township, NJ.

To find out if you are a candidate for dental implants in Budd Lake, NJ, contact Dr. Abrams, also serving Mt. Olive Township, NJ. Call 973-691-8200 to book your consultation.

How professional teeth whitening from your dentist in Budd Lake, NJ, can give you a fantastic smile

A bright smile can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but what can you do if your smile is dull, stained, or yellow? You can choose professional teeth whitening to give you a bright smile you will be proud to show off.

Dr. Steven Abrams in Budd Lake, NJ, provides a wide range of dental services, including professional teeth whitening to give you a fantastic smile. He proudly serves residents of Budd Lake, and Mount Olive Township, NJ, and he can improve your smile too.

There are many habits that can affect your smile. Drinking coffee or red wine, using tobacco products, and even eating blueberries can give you a stained, dull smile. Normal aging affects your smile too. Your enamel becomes thinner and more transparent, allowing you to see the layer underneath the enamel. This layer is naturally yellow, so your smile takes on a yellowish cast as you get older.

The safe, effective solution to make your smile more attractive is professional teeth whitening. When you choose professional teeth whitening, you will enjoy great benefits like these:

  • Effectiveness, because you can whiten and brighten your smile up to 8 shades
  • Long-lasting beauty, because your amazing results can last up to 5 years
  • Safe treatment, because professional whitening is approved by the American Dental Association
  • Quick results, because the in-office treatment takes only about an hour

When you come in for an in-office whitening treatment, a professional-strength whitening gel is applied to your teeth. Ultraviolet light is focused on your smile. This light activates and accelerates the whitening gel, giving you a brilliant smile quickly and safely. You will notice outstanding results immediately.

To discover more about how professional teeth whitening is the safe way to achieve a brighter smile, call Dr. Steven Abrams in Budd Lake, NJ, at (973) 691-8200. Get started on your new smile by calling today!
