Your teeth are durable and strong, but even still, some of the most common oral problems that our patients face are dental damage and decay. These issues can cause uncomfortable symptoms, like dental sensitivity, and put your teeth at risk for more serious problems, like infections. With the proper treatment from our team at NU Dental of Barnegat, you can rest-assured that your smile will stay healthy and look healthy.

In the past, dentists would use highly noticeable amalgam (silver) fillings to address tooth decay. Not only did they cause unsavory side-effects over time, like gum and tooth discoloration, but they also resulted in dental sensitivity and leaking that could result in even more damage to your smile. Today, we utilize a durable, chemically-bonded material called composite resin to provide a broken or decayed tooth with discreet, unmatched protection. That way, you can enjoy improved oral health and a beautiful, healthy-looking smile.
We offer dental crowns and bridges to address consecutive missing teeth as well as damaged, decayed, and severely misshapen teeth. Both of these can be custom-crafted from the finest dental materials, like porcelain and ceramic, to match the color of your surrounding teeth and improve the function and feel of your mouth. That way, you can continue eating and speaking without having to worry about discomfort or declining oral health.
In addition to bridges, we also offer full and partial dentures to address missing teeth that make everyday tasks hard to complete. These are made from a natural-looking gum-colored acrylic or metal base that houses ceramic replacement teeth that are virtually indistinguishable from your surrounding teeth. Once your denture is in place, you can enjoy a complete set of teeth and improved oral health!
