General and cosmetic dentists treat patients of all ages and address a wide spectrum of periodontal needs on a schedule that includes nights and weekends. Comfort is a top priority at the practice, where dentists discuss all treatment possibilities with their patients and dental chairs are permitted to wear cargo shorts. Advanced gear equips the team to perform orthodontia, closely examine each tooth, and apply implants.
Though he seems quite at home among the advanced tools at his Jersey Smiles dental office, Dr. Shankar Iyer is no stranger to the world outside. The jet-setting dentist has made a name for himself as an international speaker, having lectured on subjects such as implant and prosthetic dentistry across Europe, South America, and Asia. When he isn’t publishing peer-reviewed articles or patiently autographing tooth fairies’ prized collections, Dr. Iyer joins Drs. Preeti Iyer and Devika Bhola—as well as a dedicated staff of dental assistants—at his offices in Elizabeth and Jersey City. Together, the three dentists clean and correct smiles with treatments that encompass the many subsets of their field, from dental implants to prosthodontics and smile design. Their collective expertise has not gone unnoticed by former and current patients, many of whom will testify to the staff’s “professionalism and humane attitude” in devising gentle treatments to correct chipped teeth, brighten stained enamel, and silence the trills of swallowed harmonicas.
At Glamorous Smile Dental Spa, Dr. Sally Alkamary and her staff strive to keep teeth white and gums pink. Most of the time that means scheduling general dentistry services such as exams and cleanings. For more serious issues, like patients with an all-sugar diet, they'll also snap x-rays of patients' mouths.
Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and amateur magic tricks are not exactly on the list of things one normally expects to encounter at a dentist’s office. Then again, Drs. Vincent and Glenda Tavormina do not consider themselves to be the average dentists. Along with the rest of their friendly staff, the doctors aim to ease patients' fears by creating an upbeat, laid-back atmosphere. They also employ the latest, minimally invasive techniques. And although the award-winning Dr. Vincent Tavormina specializes in implants, the practice also performs other restorative, general, and cosmetic dentistry services designed to keep any smile as fresh and shiny as a newborn knight.
A Member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, Dr. Robert Massa uses his expert knowledge of the mouth and cosmetic procedures to enhance the beauty of his patients' faces. Dr. Massa draws on over seven years of experience with cosmetic injections to help make faces smoother than a pickup artist dipped in wax, and improves smiles with porcelain veneers. Invisalign orthodontics or reconstructive surgery aim to straighten crooked grins, and teeth-whitening treatments highlight healthy mouths.
Oakwood Dental Arts spreads its 10 dentists out across three locations, where they sculpt smiles with both preventive and cosmetic treatments. When they aren't fending off cavities with regular cleanings and fillings, they improve smiles with in-office whitening treatments and no-prep veneers. The latter fix chipped, crooked, and discolored teeth while preempting the pain associated with traditional veneers. The process begins when dentists craft custom porcelain shells and ends when those shells bond to existing teeth in spite of their crippling fear of intimacy.
