Dentist Office Randolph NJ
If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy, you will need to keep dental plaque to a minimum in your mouth. The way this can be best achieved is by having a great at-home teeth cleaning regimen as well as by visiting our dental office, Dr. Edward J. Smith, for periodic dental cleanings. At our dentist office Randolph NJ, our expert dentist, Dr. Edward J. Smith, also can provide periodic dental exams which also are instrumental in ensuring a healthy mouth.
Dental plaque is an extremely sticky and colorless film that naturally occurs in a patient’s mouth. Since dental plaque will always form, it is important that it is removed from the teeth with daily tooth brushing and flossing. However, it is never possible for a patient to completely remove all dental plaque, so it is recommended that you visit our dentist office Randolph NJ for periodic dental cleanings. It is generally recommended that patients have dental cleanings every six months. This will make sure that all plaque is removed from your teeth. Additionally, when plaque remains on teeth it turns into tartar. Tartar is a hard and mineralized substance which tightly adheres to teeth and can only be removed with professional dental cleanings. When you have a dental cleaning at our dental office, all tartar will also be removed. This will greatly help to prevent the development of gum disease as well as help prevent dental cavities. If our dentist sees that you are developing gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, our dentist will probably recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help return your gums to excellent health. If you like, our dental hygienists can also review with you the proper way to brush and floss your teeth so that you can have maximum benefits from your at-home cleaning regimen, and remove as much plaque as possible during your at-home cleaning.

If you are looking for a cosmetic dentist who does work that is not only well executed but is aesthetically appealing as well, then you will want to meet our dentist, Dr. Edward J. Smith. Dr. Smith is an expert cosmetic dentist who can perform all cosmetic dental procedures, including providing patients with beautiful dental crowns. You can meet Dr. Smith at our 07869 dental office, at our practice of Dr. Edward J. Smith.
At our 07869 dental office, we provide quality care for patients in a comfortable and caring environment. Our practice focuses on family dental care, and we enjoy providing care for patients of all ages. We do place an emphasis on cosmetic dentistry, but also do provide a full array of general dentistry procedures. Many patients come to us when they have a problem with a tooth that can be fixed with a dental crown. Dental crowns are made of porcelain and are placed on top of a tooth to cover the entire tooth on all four sides. Crowns can be used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance, or sometimes purely for cosmetic reasons. A crown is usually used to restore a tooth following a root canal, or when there is so much decay in a tooth that large portions of the tooth have to be removed; and a crown is then needed to strengthen the tooth and allow it to function fully.
Our 07869 dental office also uses crowns as the top portions of dental implants. Crowns are always made to color-match the adjacent teeth so no one is ever able to determine that you have a crown in your mouth. Also, crowns are made to fit into your mouth perfectly just like a regular tooth. You will not be aware that there is a crown in your mouth, or feel any discomfort from it. Dental crowns can also be used at our practice to attach bridges, keep a cracked tooth from becoming worse; or to keep an existing filling from loosening or dislocating. A crown may also sometimes be use to restore the appearance of a discolored tooth. Crowns allow patients to eat just about any food that they like, and never interfere with clear speech. If you would like to meet with Dr. Smith to see what can be done to improve your smile, or talk to him about a specific dental problem, contact our practice today for an appointment.
