Our Quality Cosmetic Offerings

At Beautiful Aesthetic Smiles, our bright and open office is the perfect setting for Dr. Shumaker to get to know you and your dental needs. We participate in continuing education on the latest dental procedures to provide you with cutting-edge services.

Our aesthetic services include:

Porcelain vs. Composite Veneers

Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped pieces of either porcelain or composite material that adhere to the surfaces of your teeth. They are designed to give your teeth an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The two most popular materials for veneers are porcelain and composite, which both offer you a beautiful and lifelike restoration with minimal enamel shaping.

  • Porcelain veneers are known for their translucent appearance and ability to blend into your natural teeth. Porcelain’s durable nature means that it’s less likely to stain or chip. When properly cared for, they can last 10-15 years.
  • Composite veneers are relied on for their ability to be applied during one visit. They are also affordable and can be placed without much reshaping of your enamel. If properly maintained, composite veneers last 4-8 years on average.

Whichever form of veneer you choose, our team will boost the beauty of your smile by personalizing your veneers to match your goals. If a veneer isn’t the right fit for your needs, we also offer long-lasting amalgam-free crowns designed to match the shape and color of your teeth.

Boost Your Confidence With Teeth Whitening

Our Colts Neck cosmetic dental practice offers you two popular options.

GLO Science™ Professional Teeth Whitening

GLO Science Professional teeth whitening treatment is conducted in-office and combines the application of gel and an LED light. The heat of the LED light activates hydrogen peroxide in the gel, leading to fast-acting and efficient teeth whitening.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Beautiful Aesthetic Smiles also offers take-home teeth whitening kits, enabling you to improve the whiteness of your smile in the comfort of your own home. We offer preformed or custom trays based on your preference. This method of teeth whitening can be an ideal option for brightening your smile before important life events, like a wedding or job interview.

Your Invisalign Provider in Colts Neck

If you’re looking for a way to fix crooked or misaligned teeth without traditional metal braces, Invisalign may be the perfect solution for you. Made of medical-grade plastic, Invisalign gradually applies pressure to your teeth without the need for brackets and wires. Many patients choose Invisalign clear aligners because they are: 

  • Discreet: The comfortable fit and clear appearance mean you can wear the trays for the required 22 hours a day without feeling self-conscious.
  • Removable: Invisalign can be removed at your leisure, allowing you to brush and floss your teeth without having to maneuver around metal brackets.
  • Flexible: Unlike metal braces, clear aligners are removable and do not restrict what you can eat.
  • Convenient: They require less maintenance than traditional braces, meaning fewer trips to the dentist.

We offer Invisalign to adults and responsible teens with mild to moderate alignment issues. If any of these benefits appeal to you, stop by our Colts Neck office to see if Invisalign is the right fit for your lifestyle.

Laser Gum Contouring

Typically, gummy smiles and receding gums are treated with gum surgery. Our Colts Neck cosmetic dentist uses a diode laser to precisely remove excess gum tissue without the need for stitches. Laser treatment is at the cutting edge of dental technology, and the procedure offers a fast recovery time and simple aftercare requirements. It can make a significant difference if you are self-conscious about your gums but don’t want to undergo surgery.

What Is Smile Design?

Our cosmetic dentist will sit down with you to discuss how you’d like to improve your smile. We’ll create a mock-up of your teeth and gums to determine which treatments can help the most. From there, we build a composite image of what your smile will look like after everything is complete.

With Smile Design, you receive comprehensive enhancements to your smile while preserving the natural look of your teeth. Contact our office to see if Smile Design is perfect for you.
