Three Cosmetic Dental Procedures

For nearly four decades Charles Zebe served as the owner of and a dentist at Accurate Dental Group in Mercerville, New Jersey. Over the course of his career, Charles Zebe gained significant experience in cosmetic dentistry.

There are a number of cosmetic dental procedures that not only help patients feel better about themselves and the state of their teeth, but also prevent further complications down the road, some of which can be dangerous. Dental bonding is a common cosmetic procedure used on cracked or chipped teeth. During dental bonding, a resin colored to match the tooth is applied and later hardens. Veneers are another tool frequently used during cosmetic dentistry. Veneers are thin, highly customizable shells that can change the color, shape, and spacing of teeth, and are often used as an alternative to crowns. Finally, crowns are placed onto misshapen or broken teeth in order to improve shape and strength. The average crown can last up to 15 years before needing to be replaced. Crowns can be made of various materials, ranging from metals to ceramics.
