Options for Cosmetic Improvements

Having a bright, beautiful smile can light up any room and is often the first thing someone will notice. Here in our Holmdel, NJ dental practice, Dr. Dipika Shah, DDS, MAGD practices cosmetic dentistry for our patients who want to improve their smile.

Whether you are looking to fix a small issue like a chip, looking for a complete smile overhaul, or even looking to smooth the skin around your smile, Dr. Shah has the skills and expertise to provide complete care.

For improving the look of issues like chips, cracks, discoloration, and gaps, dental bonding is a long-lasting option. The imperfection is smoothed over with a composite resin that is matched to the color of your tooth. For whitening purposes, the resin is chosen in a whiter color. The resin is hardened and durable enough to last for  years.

Veneers are a thin ceramic shell that goes over the front of your entire tooth. They instantly create a brand new smile, so they can fix the look of almost any dental imperfection. They are able to last between five and ten years and are stain-resistant.

With a brand new smile, smooth, young-looking skin will complete that fresh look. With Botox and Dermal Filler, this is possible. Lines around the lips and mouth are smoothed away.

Another option for those with the “gummy smile, is laser periodontal surgery. Using a laser, Dr. Shah can sculpt your gums so they reveal more of your teeth and have a nice, natural gum line.

If you are unhappy with your smile, schedule an appointment with us to see how we can help. To schedule with Dr. Dipika Shah, DDS, MAGD in our Holmdel, NJ practice, call us at (732) 264-8180 or visit our website,
