Cosmetic Dentistry Myths in Toms River

Common Myths about Toms River Family Cosmetic DentistryAlthough it’s been around a long time, and is extremely popular, some myths have sprung up around cosmetic dentistry. At Rotem Dental Care in Toms River, we’d like to dispel some of them.

Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile

Many procedures thought of as cosmetic do more than just improve your appearance. Procedures like tooth replacement prevent many such problems as tooth movement, bone loss and difficulty chewing and speaking.

Myth #2: A Dental Bridge is the Only Way to Replace a Missing Tooth

Dental bridges have been used for many years with success. However, dental implants may be a better choice for replacing one or more missing teeth and have many advantages. They feel like natural teeth, they are stronger, and they are easier to clean than dental bridges. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures or partial dentures.

Myth #3: At-Home Kits are as Effective for Teeth Whitening Than a Professional Dental Solution

At Rotem Dental Care, we offer teeth whitening treatments that are more effective than any over-the-counter product. At-home kits may remove surface stains, but they do not provide optimum results and can often lead to uneven coloring.

Myth #4: Dental Bonding is the Best Way to Fix a Chipped Tooth.

Dental bonding can restore the shape of a tooth, but may not be the best long-term solution. If you have a damaged tooth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers.

Myth #5: Braces are the Only Way to Correct Crooked Teeth

Braces are often part of a transforming dental makeover for teens and adults. However, if your teeth are only slightly crooked, Invisalign clear braces can correct your bite, and are almost undetectable.
