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.

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!

Could a dental crown improve your smile and oral health? Let’s find out!

If you are thinking about getting a dental crown, you may be curious to learn more about this restoration and what it will do to boost your smile’s strength and appearance.

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is designed to look just like the crown of a real tooth. This restoration is shaped like a tooth but is hollow on the inside, that way it can easily fit over a tooth to change its appearance or restore strength and function if a tooth has become damaged or weak. A crown is a great protective barrier for a tooth and can even preserve it for years to come.

If your family dentist has recommended that you get a dental crown, you may be wondering what it can do for your smile.

  • A restoration that can support a dental bridge to replace one or more missing teeth
  • A restoration that can also be used to cover a dental implant to replace missing teeth
  • A restoration that provides more support and stability when a large filling is no longer able to properly support a tooth
