Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Tooth dullness or staining is an indication that whitening should be considered. Smokers and those who drink coffee and/or tea on a regular basis accelerate the discoloration and require cleaning more often. This is among the most common reasons for teeth whitening. Tooth whitening is usually the first solution a New Jersey dentist will try due to its lower cost. Please call us at 732-341-8500 or contact us with any questions about dulling or discoloration of teeth or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
NJ dentists will tell you that Bonding is a tooth-colored composite resin (similar to enamel) that is bonded to the tooth surface to repair and/or change the color or shape of a tooth. It is then sculpted into shape, hardened, and polished. When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonded composite resins may be the material of choice. Bonding also makes a great tooth colored filling for small cavities and broken or chipped surfaces. It can also be used to close spaces between teeth. Additionally, it is used to cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to change its color and shape. Dr. Rotem, a top dentist in NJ, excels in bonding teeth. Please call us at 732-341-8500 or contact us with any questions about bonding or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
Bridges are designed to replace missing teeth. Not only do they fill the unsightly spaces left by lost teeth, but they also help support the teeth adjacent to, and directly opposite, the missing teeth. Often, central New Jersey dentists will recommend an Implant to fill in the space as well. Please call us at 732-341-8500 or contact us with any questions about bridges and replacing missing teeth or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
In some instances, simple reshaping (contouring) of the front teeth, even without anesthesia, may produce a dramatic result to correct jagged, chipped or slightly uneven teeth. A New Jersey dentist specializing in cosmetic dentistry simply utilizes sanding discs and creativity, to create a natural look with existing teeth. Please call us at 732-341-8500 or contact us with any questions about correcting jagged teeth or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
Crowns are used when making cosmetic improvements to the teeth is the goal, but dentists in New Jersey and elsewhere will tell you that they serve an additional purpose. A crown is placed over a tooth, replacing most of its enamel. By its nature, it surrounds the tooth, giving it strength and providing a strong, durable biting surface, thereby alleviating the condition. Please call us at 732-341-8500 or contact us with any questions about correcting weak biting surfaces or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
Porcelain inlays are considered durable by most NJ dentists, with a manufacturing process that enables a high degree of accuracy in placing the inlay. Porcelain inlays bind onto the tooth and increase the overall strength of the tooth. These inlays may cost more than other types of filling procedures. Ceramic inlays are used to repair somewhat damaged back teeth. They are made of very strong and durable industrial ceramics. Dentists in New Jersey and elsewhere glue ceramic inlays into place with special adhesives, which hold the damaged parts of the tooth together. These inlays are quite durable, and resemble a tooth in every way. They are also significantly stronger than regular filling materials. Please call us at 732-341-8500 or contact us with any questions about porcelain and ceramic inlays or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
According to Dr. Ronen Rotem, a top dentist in NJ among central New Jersey dentists, many times, the demands of cosmetic changes in the mouth are too great for simple bonding. This is when porcelain laminate veneers may be used. Porcelain veneers, sometimes referred to as laminates, can alter an entire smile. Porcelain laminate veneers are quick, painless, and effective. They can change shape, color, size, and arrangement of teeth or any combination of these factors. They can be used as an alternative for orthodontic treatment. The best part about porcelain laminate veneers is that they can be placed in two visits. Please call us at 732-341-8500 or E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about porcelain laminate veneers or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
When there is not enough tooth structure left, or the chewing demands in the mouth are too great for laminates, a New Jersey dentist will recommend a stronger, more extensive restoration. In this case, porcelain jacket crowns are used. Porcelain jackets are pure porcelain crowns placed on a fully prepared tooth. They are the most life-like of all full crown type restorations. Please call us at 732-341-8500 or contact us with any questions about porcelain jackets or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
When biting pressure is too great for porcelain jackets, teeth are loose due to periodontal disease, or gaps from missing teeth must be filled in, a New Jersey dentist must place a metal alloy under the porcelain for strength. This is the porcelain-fused-to-metal-crown technique. Your New Jersey dentist will remove more tooth structure to accommodate both metal and porcelain. Once an impression is taken, a metal coping is made on the prepared tooth. This is then covered with porcelain. Porcelain-fused-to-metal-crowns do not have the translucency of pure porcelain crowns. However, a talented ceramist-dentist in NJ with experience in custom staining can usually overcome this limitation. When individual back teeth are broken down but some good healthy tooth structure remains, porcelain-fused-to-gold inlays are used. This is the strongest and longest lasting back teeth restoration procedure. Once the tooth is properly prepared, the technique is similar to the porcelain-fused-to-metal-crown technique. The benefit of this restoration is the advantage of gold underneath, which supports the tooth during heavy biting, therefore protecting the tooth and the nerve.

It Really Works! You take a small pill prior to treatment and there are no intravenous tubes or needles. You will have little or no memory of the experience. You won't remember any sounds or smells. You will snooze for up to five to six hours after taking the pill. The time you are snoozing will vary depending on your needed treatment.
Complex dental treatments that often require six to eight appointments can be done in as little as one all while you snooze. People who have difficulty getting numb will find that nap dentistry eliminates this problem. Nap dentistry is a safe way to reduce the fatigue of extended dental treatment requiring long visits. Please call us at 732-341-8500 or contact us with any questions about Nap dentistry or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.

While bad breath might be a symptom of some other disorder, according to most New Jersey dentists, it most likely stems from dental decay and periodontitis. Periodontitis is a disease affecting gums and bone that support the teeth, and it results from inadequate tooth brushing and flossing. In this disease, the irritated gums pull away from the teeth and form pockets between the teeth and the gums. These pockets fill with bacteria and pus, which give off a foul odor.
Patients with bad breath should receive a complete dental evaluation. If gum disease and/or dental decay are diagnosed, it can be readily treated by Dr. Rotem, a leader among central New Jersey dentists in this area. The patient will no longer have an infection in his or her mouth, and he or she will no longer have the embarrassment of bad breath.

Bonding is typically painless and can yield dramatic results in a single visit to our central New Jersey dentists office. Essentially, bonding hides any natural flaws through the placement of a thin plastic coating on the front surface of the teeth. After treating the tooth surface, a puttylike bonding material is applied that is then sculpted, shaped and colored to suit the patient's needs. A high-intensity light causes the plastic to harden after which the new surface is smoothed and polished. Bonding can lighten stains, close gaps and even alter crooked or malformed teeth. It can be utilized to change the shape or color of a single tooth or if necessary to revamp the entire smile. Please call us at 732-341-8500 or E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about repairing broken teeth or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
The appearance of the teeth has a dramatic effect on both the person's attractiveness to others and on their own self-image and self-esteem. Studies have shown that a person's appearance will have a strong effect on their social and career success, by influencing how others perceive them. While the appearance of the teeth is one of the most important contributors to facial beauty, it is also probably the most often neglected when improvements to appearance are sought. A person with low self-esteem connected to their facial appearance can often be greatly helped by a top dentist in NJ, like Dr. Rotem, who is certified for cosmetic dental procedures. A dental make-over has become more common, less invasive, and more effective in correcting deformities and cosmetic dental problems. The effect of these procedures can be nothing short of dramatic both in terms of appearance and in terms of correcting personality deficiencies caused by poor self-image. Thanks to top cosmetic dentists in New Jersey like Dr. Rotem, ugly teeth are no longer a matter of fate; they’ve now become a matter of choice. Please call us at 732-341-8500 or E-mail us at email@example.com with any questions about how cosmetic dentistry can result in positive self-esteem or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
Porcelain veneers are often used by NJ dentists for the same reasons as bonding. They are considerably more durable and stain resistant than bonding. The veneer is actually a thin piece of porcelain similar in size to a fingernail. Once it is "bonded" onto the tooth it becomes extremely strong. It also blends in with the remaining tooth structure so that it is unnoticeable to the naked-eye. Once in place, it looks, feels, and functions just like a regular tooth. Cosmetic dentists in New Jersey can utilize porcelain veneers to change the shape and color of a single tooth or, if necessary, revamp an entire smile. Porcelain veneers can also be used to correct teeth that have been worn from clenching and grinding. Please call Dr. Rotem at 732-341-8500 or contact us with any questions about porcelain veneers or to arrange for a free cosmetic consultation.
central New Jersey dentists, like dentists elsewhere, often restore teeth with fillings of silver or composite plastics. These materials can often accomplish the aim of replacing the part of the tooth that has been lost in a strong and good-looking manner. However, there comes a point where the damage to the tooth has removed too much structure to hold a filling. The restoration must be done by a technique that will attach to the remaining tooth, stand up under heavier use and meet more elaborate cosmetic requirements. The Crown is the dental restoration that can strengthen and restore the entire top of a tooth. The crown can also be part of the attachment of a fixed bridge for the replacement of teeth. The tooth is strengthened because it is covered from the outside with a casting of metal or ceramic that will wrap up and splint the tooth. The chewing of the tooth can be improved because it can be reshaped to match more efficiently with the opposing teeth. A crown can improve cosmetics by the use of modern ceramic processes that produce translucency and color that is more natural than has ever been possible. Please call us at 732-341-8500 or contact us with any questions about crowns or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
For over 100 years, central New Jersey dentists have been using silver-mercury amalgam fillings to restore decayed or broken teeth. The only other alternative was gold and that was always too expensive for most folks. Now there is a new and economical way for a dentist in New Jersey to restore teeth using tooth-colored resin fillings. The resin is made up of glass particles in a plastic matrix. The doctor bonds the putty-like material to the tooth with a high-intensity light. This hardens the material and allows it to be shaped and polished for immediate use. Once completed, the tooth has a natural appearance and is actually stronger than before due to the strength of the adhesive agent used to bond the resin to the tooth. Resin restorations not only look better, but they are stronger and last longer than the old silver-amalgam fillings. Please call 732-341-8500 or contact us with any questions you may have about the benefits of resin restorations or to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
