Leading edge dentistry in Milburn, NJ
Are you dissatisfied with how stained and yellowed your teeth look? Of course, you want your natural teeth to look their best.
Dr. Shick understands and offers individuals with healthy smiles advanced teeth whitening. Ava a Quickly improving tooth color up to 8 shades in about an hour, professional in-house whitening uses safe and effective gels to power out stains from medications, food, smoking and highly colored beverages.
For individuals who want to try whitening at home, Dr. Shick has custom-fit whitening trays and a gentler peroxide gel for home application. This whitening takes more time but produces outstanding results.
Also offered are porcelain veneers or Lumineers. When teeth are darkly stained, chipped, cracked or poorly spaced, beautiful Lumineers provide a custom-crafted, durable covering that remains amazingly beautiful indefinitely. Dr. Shick gently etches the front side of healthy teeth to accept these super-thin porcelain shells. A special dental lab fabricates the veneers according to Dr. Shick’s patient-specific instructions and dental impression.
In only 2 dental visits, Lumineers change a smile from uneven and dull to bright and dazzling. Both patients and Dr. Shick are pleased with the dramatic improvement.
Finally, restorative and cosmetic dentistry combine in a wonder called the dental implant. Dr. Shick uses this modern tooth replacement to:
- replace one or more teeth
- anchor full arches of dentures
- support bridgework
From root to crown, the dental implant is truly a prosthetic tooth. In an in-office surgical procedure, Dr. Shick places a titanium screw into the patient’s empty tooth socket. After a period of healing, he puts a post and porcelain crown on the implant, blending the new tooth with its natural neighbors. The implant is secure and last for years because the titanium metal actually integrates with the jaw to create a super-secure anchor for the new tooth.
Patients report that Dr. Shick’s dental implants look, feel and perform just like real teeth! And, people brush and floss them just as though they are real.
