Dentist in Clifton, NJ

At Eastern Dental, we take a local, convenient, and family-oriented approach to dental services for individuals and families throughout Clifton, NJ. When you visit our location, you’ll find that it’s modern and welcoming. You can expect a fast check-in and access to a comprehensive range of dental services. You’ll also be treated by a dentist you can build a relationship with, and that familiarity can make the information and recommendations you receive even more valuable.

A Long-Term Plan to Oral Health

Whether you’ve being seen by a dentist regularly or you have gone years since your last visit, we’d like to help. That help can begin with an exam, a smile assessment, and a discussion. We can then establish a plan to achieve and maintain your perfect smile. Your dentist will explain each procedure so that you know what to expect. The routine care we provide our patients includes teeth cleaning, fluoride treatments, and X-rays. Many of our patients also come to us for anti-snoring treatments. Our cosmetic dental procedures include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental bonding
  • Dental veneers

No matter how severe the current condition of your teeth and gums is, our focus will be on preserving your natural teeth. We’re often able to correct misaligned teeth through the use of braces and retainers, and our periodontists focus on treating gum and tissue diseases. If preserving your natural teeth isn’t possible, both implants and dentures are an option. Our further range of dental services also include: 

  • Single- and multi-tooth restoration
  • Full-arch restoration
  • Bone and soft tissue grafting

A Comprehensive Smile Solution

At Eastern Dental, you and your family will find all the dental care you need under a single roof. We take great pride in being a friendly, full-service dental location, and our patients come to us from throughout Clifton and the surrounding areas. If you need to see a dentist, contact us today to schedule a visit.
