Cosmetic Dentistry 

in Manalapan, NJ

Tooth colored (“white”) fillings / bonding

Smaller areas of tooth decay are usually restored with fillings.  Dr. Ciuffreda almost exclusively uses tooth colored, bonded filling material (also known as “composite”) for these procedures. One aspect of cosmetic dentistry that Dr. Ciuffreda finds particularly rewarding is when he is able to blend a bonded filling into a tooth so that you can’t even tell that a restoration was done at all.

The advantages of bonded fillings include :

- (as the name implies…) actual bonding of the restoration to the tooth

- most times the ability to do a much smaller restoration, thereby conserving natural tooth structure 

- outstanding esthetics. 

All Porcelain Crowns

Crowns involve the reduction of more tooth structure and may be warranted for several reasons, including:

-  inadequate remaining tooth structure

- fractured (cracked) teeth

-  following endodontic (root canal) therapy

-  cosmetic enhancement. 

All-porcelain crowns typically provide a beautiful, natural cosmetic result as they allow for a degree of translucency as with natural tooth structure, and also eliminate the possibility of the “dark line” effect at the gum line that may sometimes occur with traditional porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns.   At Remarkable Grins. our all porcelain crowns are most often fabricated of state-of-the-art, high-strength  and highly esthetic all-porcelain materials such as zirconia and e-max.  Dr. Ciuffreda  reviews an x-ray of all crowns prior to final placement and cementation to ensure that they are perfectly fitting and provide the best possible seal to the underlying tooth structure.

All Porcelain Bridges

Bridges are one treatment option for the restoration of missing teeth (or failing teeth that require extraction) and are comprised of multiple crowns joined together.  Teeth on either side of the space are prepared (reduced) which serve as the anchoring points for the restoration. 

As with single crowns, All-porcelain bridges typically provide a beautiful, natural cosmetic result as they allow for a degree of translucency as with natural tooth structure, and also eliminate the possibility of the “dark line” effect at the gum line that may sometimes occur with porcelain fused to metal (PFM) bridges.

At Remarkable Grins, our  all porcelain bridges are most often fabricated of state-of-the-art, high-strength and highly esthetic all-porcelain materials such as zirconia .  Dr. Ciuffreda  reviews an x-ray of all crowns prior to final placement and cementation to ensure that they are perfectly fitting and provide the best possible seal to the underlying tooth structure.  Bridges provide an esthetically pleasing, strong and functional solution to restore spaces due to tooth loss.

Porcelain Veneers (Laminates)

Porcelain veneers, otherwise known as laminates, are thin shells of porcelain that are most commonly used for cosmetic enhancement.  The amount of tooth reduction is much less than that of a crown, and this restoration provides an optimal level of translucency to achieve a natural looking, beautiful smile.  Veneers are not as strong as crowns, and are often not indicated following rooth canal therapy, or for teeth with large fractured or decayed areas.
