Princeton Preventive Dentistry

Did you know that most dental problems can be prevented? Our Princeton and West Windsor, NJ dental services are built on a foundation of preventive strategies that promote healthy teeth and gums for life. Through minimally-invasive and proactive approaches to care, we’re able to help you avoid unnecessary and invasive procedures in the future.

Prophylactic CleaningsRoutine dental cleanings are a great way to remove tartar and stain buildup while preventing gum disease. For our healthy patients, we recommend a checkup at least every six months (for adults and children alike.)

During your checkup we’ll also take periodic X-rays to aid in screening for symptoms of disease, tooth decay, bone loss, etc. around the teeth and jaws. We’ll share these images with you so that you can work with us jointly to plan appropriate care for any concerns that we find.

Periodontal Therapy (Scaling and Root Planing) — Gum disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. West Windsor deep cleanings combat periodontitis where it starts: just under the gums and along the roots of your teeth. Get a gum disease screening at least once per year to intervene before bone loss becomes severe.

Oral Cancer Screenings — A professional oral cancer exam could save your life. This deadly disease affects thousands of people each year and is especially dangerous because it’s hard to diagnose on your own. Factors as simple as sun exposure or viruses can increase your risk of a positive diagnosis.

Protective SealantsThese thin coatings help by covering the deep grooves and pits on the chewing surfaces of your child’s back teeth. A sealant is easy to apply, and no numbing is needed. We can usually place them at the same time as a usual checkup.

Fluoride — Strengthen weak and sensitive tooth enamel to make it resistant to decay and irritation. Fluoride is helpful for people of all ages, especially those in braces.

Looking for Cosmetic Dentistry in West Windsor?

If your smile isn’t what you hoped that it was, we can help you transform it into a beautiful accessory that you’ll love to show off each day. Investing in whiter, straighter, fuller teeth can help you look your best when a first impression matters most. Whether it’s to get ahead in your career, boost your social life as you re-enter the dating scene, or to look gorgeous on your wedding day, we’ve got you covered!

Teeth Whitening — Professional teeth whitening gives you faster and more effective results when you want a brighter smile. For some people, bleaching is the only “smile makeover” that they need! It’s also a great way to jump-start your upcoming cosmetic procedures, allowing us to match new restorations to naturally brighter teeth.

Princeton Dental VeneersFor a smile makeover that’s everything you hoped for, dental veneers are the answer. With veneers it’s possible to help your teeth look whiter, straighter, and properly sized in just a couple of appointments. Each set of veneers is custom designed by our experienced lab to look both natural and beautiful as they’re bonded over the front of your “smile zone.”

Composite Tooth Bonding — When you need to fix a chipped tooth, uneven area, or even a small gap in your smile, dental bonding is an excellent choice. This non-invasive procedure doesn’t even require numbing anesthetic and can be completed in less than an hour.

White Fillings — Our mercury-free cosmetic fillings are minimally-invasive and made to match the color of your natural smile, so that they blend in wherever they are. Unlike traditional amalgam restorations, composite fillings can also be placed on smooth tooth surfaces, such as along the gumlines or on teeth toward the front of your mouth.

Porcelain Crowns and Bridges — Restore your cracked, broken, or missing teeth with a durable and cosmetically pleasing crown or bridge. These gorgeous ceramic restorations can also be placed on top of dental implants, in lieu of wearing a denture.

By replacing your missing teeth in a timely manner, you can avoid the unwanted side effects of abnormal tooth wear, TMJ pain, and shifting/misalignment of the neighboring teeth.

Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics) — When a tooth is abscessed or badly damaged, one of our gentle root canals can help you preserve your smile for several more years instead of extracting the tooth.

Custom Denture Design — Replacing missing teeth has never been easier. Our full and partial dentures come in a variety of designs to fit your aesthetic preferences.

Tooth ExtractionsA painful toothache, emergency, or impacted wisdom tooth are some of the most common reasons to have a tooth pulled. We’ll keep you comfortable during the process.

Comprehensive and Holistic Strategies — From full mouth reconstruction and night guards that prevent headaches, to TMJ disorder therapy and dental implants, we have something for every smile. We’ll fine tune your care plan as part of our individualized treatment experience.

ClearCorrect Braces (Invisible Aligners) — Enjoy straighter, healthier teeth without having to wear metal orthodontic appliances. Our Princeton ClearCorrect aligners make it possible to adjust your bite in a discreet and comfortable manner.
