Improving Smile Aesthetics and Function in Fanwood and Scotch Plains
When it comes to recommending and administering cosmetic dental treatments, Dr. Bauman’s one-patient-at-a-time approach lays the foundation for comfort and trust. You’d be hard pressed to find another Fanwood cosmetic dentist with the same experience and level of dedication. Using a blend of tried and true methods along with the latest dental technologies, Dr. Bauman’s cosmetic practice inspires confidence, is flexible, amenable and capable of changing lives for the better.
From basic fillings—where amalgam, composite and porcelain materials may be used depending on the preference of the patients—to full denture implant-supported restorations; Dr. Bauman is committed to ensuring that patients know and understand all of the options available to them.
Other cosmetic treatments include:
Crowns– Crowns are used to restore broken, damaged or decayed teeth, including teeth that have had their surface breached during a root canal. Though they come in a variety of forms, porcelain crowns, which resemble normal teeth, are the most popular. Having a crown placed is a two-step/two-appointment process. On your first visit, molds are taken of the site where the crown is to be applied and a temporary crown will be placed while you await the construction of your permanent crown. On the second visit, your permanent crown is placed, and you, along with your new, winning smile are good to go!
Fixed Bridges – Bridges are used to fill gaps of missing teeth with artificial teeth typically made of porcelain. Bridges are secured using a pair of crowns that cover two “abutment” teeth. These crowns are fused to a metal “bridge” with the artificial teeth attached. Fixed bridges are secured permanently with cement, so you never have to worry about removing them at night or having them slip out accidentally. You will, however, need to care for your bridge with regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-up visits.
Veneers and Lumineers® – Veneers are thin dental prosthetics, usually made of porcelain, that attach to the front of the teeth and are used to enhance color and to cosmetically restore misshapen or damaged teeth. Lumineers® are a special type of veneer; they are extremely thin and sheathed over the teeth to produce the same smile-brightening effect as standard veneers.
Teeth Whitening Solutions – Dr. Bauman’s popular tooth whitening treatments are available both in- office and for take-home use. For patients using a take-home whitening treatment, Dr. Bauman constructs customized whitening trays for each patient to ensure optimal results.
