A beautiful, natural looking smile is easily attainable with porcelain veneers. Veneers are increasing in popularity in the New Jersey area. Genetics, everyday activities, accidents, and injuries can negatively impact teeth, especially the front teeth. Coffee, tea, red wine, and cigarette smoke can yellow teeth, too. Teeth affected by trauma, tetracycline, or root canals can turn gray. Fillings in the front teeth may appear discolored. Accidents or injuries can cause teeth to chip.
Dr. Vocaturo and his team are well-versed in dental veneers and will ensure that you get only the results you are after. Veneers can completely transform the look of your smile and correct a multitude of issues including: injuries, accidents, tooth decay, staining and more.
Dental veneers are bonded to the teeth. They’re resistant to staining, last a long time, and can correct the symmetry of your smile. Thin but very strong ceramic porcelain veneers are crafted to match your mouth and your smile goals.
Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
Cracking, root canals, lost fillings and other trauma can permanently damage a tooth’s structure. When the surface of the tooth is a problem but the root is healthy, covering the tooth with a dental crown may be the answer. Dental crowns cover the entire tooth and are excellent alternatives to veneers and dentures. Natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing, dental crowns are excellent for replacing individual missing teeth or severely injured teeth while at the same time adding strength and stability to the teeth.
NJ Smile Center offers dental crowns that are designed to match the color and texture of your existing teeth. By working directly with a dental lab we are able to provide our patients with the most natural-looking and aesthetically attractive crowns. Unlike other dental offices that leave it up to the lab to create their restorations, our Colts Neck, NJ practice directly tells the lab exactly what we want the crown to look like. This ensures that we receive the most natural restoration possible, which in turn blends perfectly with the patient's existing teeth.
If you’re looking at alternatives to veneers in The Monmouth County, NJ area, talk to us about dental bonding. Dental bonding is a quick and painless cosmetic dentistry procedure that uses a composite resin to fix both structural and cosmetic defects in teeth. Dental bonding is used to repair teeth that are chipped or cracked and to replace unattractive silver fillings. If teeth are misshapen or have gaps between them, dental bonding can be leveraged to build-up and re-shape teeth and fill in gaps. Dental bonding can even be used to whiten stained and discolored teeth, too. At our practice, the dental bonding procedure typically takes a few hours, and results are immediate.
Because your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, a great smile can be a huge confidence-booster. You don’t have to live with a smile that’s less than dazzlingly white. Our dental practice offers options to whiten your teeth, such as the Zoom!® tooth whitening procedure, which safely gives you a whiter, brighter, natural looking smile in as little as an hour and a half! The Zoom!® tooth whitening system lightens your teeth up to ten shades and quickly and effectively transforms stained, yellow, or aged teeth into something beautiful. This is one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures!
The Zoom!® teeth whitening procedure is not for everyone. Those who are sensitive to light, taking medication that increases light sensitivity, or involved in therapy that incorporates the use of light may be ineligible for the Zoom!® teeth whitening system. Patients prone to anxiety or extreme nervousness and those with a sensitive gag reflex may wish to explore other tooth whitening options. Our staff at NJ Smile Center are experts in the ZOOM! whitening procedure and would be more than happy to discuss your situation to determine whether or not you are a candidate for the ZOOM! whitening procedure.
If you are interested in having a dazzlingly white smile with a minimal amount of time or effort, contact the cosmetic dental professionals at our office to discuss your options! Our experienced cosmetic dentist at NJ Smile Center will be happy to provide you with additional information.
Clear braces, also known as Invisalign or ClearCorrect, is a newer orthodontic treatment option that's perfect for those who are looking to straighten their smile without the usage of noticeable wires and brackets. Clear braces work by utilizing a series of custom-made, removable aligners made of plastic that are also virtually invisible. Others won't even be able to tell that you're undergoing orthodontic treatment.
The Advantages Of Clear Braces
Some of the advantages of choosing clear braces include:
A discrete form of orthodontic treatment.
Aligners can be removed for eating and easy brushing.
The plastic aligners are more comfortable than metal wires and brackets that can irritate the mouth and gums.
They can whiten teeth simultaneously.
The last aligner can also be used as a retainer.
BOTOX® treatment is a revolutionary approach to reversing the effects of facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet, worry lines and laugh lines can all be a thing of the past. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkle lines and all are treatable with this procedure. Cosmetic denervation is the process of injecting botox into the tiny facial muscles that create the wrinkles.
Microabrasion is a quick and painless way to remove stubborn spots and stains from the teeth. After protecting the gums with a rubber shield, we apply a mix of hydrochloric acid and pumice directly to the teeth to gently remove a very thin layer of tooth enamel. We then thoroughly rinse the teeth and apply a fluoride gel to reduce sensitivity.

Laser Gingival Recontouring
Would you say that you have a “gummy” smile? Do your teeth appear to be short or stubby? As important as the teeth are to the appearance of your smile, the shape and size of your gum line matters just as much. For people who have an excess of gum tissue that shows whenever they smile, Dr. Anthony Vocaturo can offer a quick and easy solution using a soft tissue diode laser.
This device uses a narrow beam of light to gently remove and reshape the gum tissue as needed. It can be used to give you that perfectly proportioned smile. Also, due to the precision of the laser, this treatment causes little to no pain, no bleeding occurs, and healing time is minimal.
Thanks to Dr. Anthony Vocaturo's experience with this tool, he can also use it to uncover partially erupted teeth for bracket placement and even reshape uneven gum tissue.
