Dentist in Avenel, NJ

If you're searching for a reputable family dentist in Avenel, NJ, look no further than Eastern Dental. Our dental professionals include a periodontist and an orthodontist, so we cover routine care, gum disease treatments, and braces.

Reliable Services

Whether you require a bi-annual cleaning or more in-depth treatment, we're here for you. If you can't identify the problem with your teeth, we'll take X-rays and recommend the appropriate dental services. An infected pulp, for example, may require a root canal. Should you come to us because you have broken, missing, discolored, or badly shaped teeth, we can present you with a variety of solutions, including:

  • Dental fillings
  • Dental crowns
  • Removable and fixed bridges
  • Full and partial dentures

If you have a cavity, know that we have plastic and porcelain filling options that can blend in with the rest of your teeth. Our crowns are made from porcelain, and we can use them to restore broken teeth or protect weakened teeth. If you want to keep your back teeth from decaying, ask about our dental sealants. To restore large gaps in the mouth, you can look into our bridges and partial dentures.

Our family dentistry services wouldn't be complete, however, if we treated only teeth. That's why our dental professionals make sure that patients have clean, tartar-free gums by performing deep cleanings. We can also help patients who need:

  • Wisdom teeth extractions
  • Bone grafting
  • Soft tissue grafting

Our cosmetic dentistry options include not only teeth whitening but also dental bonding and veneers. Teeth whitening works on common stains caused by food and drink while bonds are meant to improve the look of chipped or cracked teeth. Veneers cover up discoloration that comes from inside the teeth.

Accepting New Patients

At Eastern Dental, we proudly serve patients throughout Avenel and the surrounding areas, so contact us today to schedule an appointment with a dentist. You can expect us to provide you with a thorough understanding of your treatment options before we set you up with a treatment plan.
