Getting The Smile of Your Dreams
Social activities and obligations can be challenging, draining, and demanding in and of themselves, but having to worry about the look of your smile only adds more unnecessary anxiety. More importantly, with all that life throws your way, taking time to ensure you have a smile that you can be proud of is an act of self-care. At State Street Smiles, we can help you achieve the beautiful smile you deserve and the confidence that comes with it.
If your teeth have lost a little of their dazzle or you’ve chipped or cracked them, no need to worry. Our expert dentists and our dedicated team offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services to bring out the best in your best smile.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of your teeth. Our treatments are designed to make your teeth whiter or look more uniform. At State Street Smiles, we use the latest dental technology to help provide patients from the Teterboro, Maywood, Teaneck, and surrounding areas with the best dental experience possible. The results of these procedures are sure to boost your confidence with a renewed, brighter smile.
Cosmetic Treatments At State Street Smiles
If you find your smile isn’t as bright as it once was, teeth whitening can be just the boost you need. Even with diligent brushing and flossing, our teeth become stained over time. For a professional teeth whitening experience that can instantly brighten your smile by several shades, we recommend scheduling an appointment with Dr. Jackson.
If your teeth have small chips, cracks, discoloration, or dents, dental bonding can fix these cosmetic issues and improve the appearance of your smile. By using a tooth-colored filling material, we can make it look like your tooth is as good as new. That way, you can smile confidently again. We can also use this material for cavity treatment, rather than silver-toned amalgam fillings.
Do you wish you could have a perfect smile? Many celebrities entrust their smile to veneers to achieve a beautiful, yet natural appearance. These thin, tooth-shaped porcelain shells are attached to the fronts of your natural teeth, so you’ll still maintain the strength of your smile. We’ll usually only place veneers on the parts of your mouth that are visible when you’re talking or smiling, fixing any minor cosmetic issues in the process with this non-invasive procedure.
The Importance of Caring for Your Smile
Investing time and money in a cosmetic procedure will be a waste if you don’t take care of your teeth. In addition to having a beautiful smile, Dr. Jackson will ensure that your smile is healthy and that there are no underlying issues before recommending a procedure.
To keep your smile healthy at home we recommend:
- Brushing Twice a Day: Especially after meals to keep your mouth free of food and prevent the build-up of decay-causing bacteria.
- Floss at Least Once a Day: Preferably in the evening. Going to bed with leftover dinner in your teeth can leave you vulnerable to bacteria build-up.
- Rinse with Mouthwash: Ideally right after your meals. This is a quick, simple way to ensure your mouth stays clean throughout the day.
- Scheduling Routine Visits: Dr. Jackson recommends stopping by at least once every six months to make sure that there’s no plaque or tartar in your smile. Even patients with impeccable at-home habits are encouraged to come in for professional cleanings. Routine check-ups also allow us to check for potential issues such as periodontal disease and oral cancer.
Frequently Asked Questions
A smile that is bright and white is very important, and we understand that not everybody has time to sit for in-office tooth whitening. That’s why Dr. Jackson also offers an at-home whitening option so that you can brighten your smile on your own schedule. By using our kits, you’ll be able to notice your smile becoming whiter and looking healthier.
Depending on your unique situation and how crooked your teeth are, porcelain veneers may be a better alternative to straightening your smile compared to traditional metal braces. If your misalignment is too extensive, Dr. Jackson may recommend one of our orthodontic procedures at State Street Smiles instead.
