Cracked, chipped and discolored teeth can make you feel as though your appearance is not up to par. Fortunately for you and your cosmetic dentistrysmile, your dentist can help you treat these abnormalities and achieve the smile of your dreams. Learn more about teeth whitening, veneers and dental bonding with Ramsey Family Dental in Ramsey, NJ.

Dental Veneers 
Dental veneers are a thin shell of porcelain which fits over the front of a tooth to hide its irregularities. While this procedure is often used to restore all or most of the teeth, it can also correct a single tooth with, for example, a crack or permanent discoloration unable to be treated with teeth whitening. Veneers require preparation of the teeth on which they lie, making them a permanent and irreversible procedure.

Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening procedures can boost your smile to a whole new level. However, this procedure can also change your smile subtly, with less dramatic effects, depending on your preference. Thanks to its versatile nature, teeth whitening can compliment a range of other cosmetic dentistry procedures. Though whitening does not lift the color of dental restorations like dental veneers, you can work with your dentist to come up with an even combination of veneers and whitening for a seamless smile.

Dental Bonding
Dental bonding uses composite resin materials molded directly onto the teeth then hardened with a special light to quickly repair chipped teeth. Your dentist will use the correct color composite resin according to your teeth to ensure a natural look. The resin materials are the same used in filling and root canal procedures.
