What Our Patients Are Saying…

I went to Dental Associates because I was considering braces. I started out with Fast Braces but after 4 months I decided to go with Invisalign. Dr. Liao and staff are Great! They made me feel comfortable and always greeted me with a warm welcome. They took great care of me and I love my new smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do dental crowns last?

The lifespan of a dental crown depends on the material it’s made with, its location in your mouth, and your oral hygiene habits. Generally speaking, most crowns will last an average of 10 to 15 years, but some may never need replacement.

Can you get a bridge for three missing teeth?

Yes, if you are missing three adjacent teeth, they can be replaced with a bridge. An implant-supported bridge is an ideal solution, as it helps prevent bone loss in the jaw and provides a more stable restoration.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants depends on the type of restoration you choose, the number of implants being placed, and any preliminary work you may need, like extractions or bone grafts. We will provide you with an estimate prior to your procedure, but a single-tooth dental implant can range from $2600–3600, including the implant itself, the abutment, and the crown.

What makes a good candidate for dental implants?

The ideal candidate for dental implants is in good health, has no active periodontal disease, and has sufficient bone density in the jaw to support dental implants. If you have experienced bone loss in the jaw, you will need bone grafts prior to your surgery, or you may be a fit for the All-on-4 procedure.

What is smile in a day?

You’ll often hear about smile in a day, teeth in a day, or new teeth in one day procedures when researching options for replacing teeth. These all refer to a procedure in which dental implants are placed and restorations are affixed to them in a single appointment. In the past, dental implants in Garfield, NJ required several appointments and a significant amount of time in the dentist’s chair; this new approach makes implants more accessible to all patients.

Are dentures better than implants?

While dentures are more affordable than implants, implants look and feel more natural, and they’re the only solution for missing teeth that replace the tooth both above and below the gum line. Unless there are underlying health concerns that rule out dental implants, we recommend implants over dentures.

Do you really need teeth cleaning every six months?

Most patients need a teeth cleaning every six months, but some may need to have their teeth cleaned more often, particularly if they have gum disease. Ideally, your biannual teeth cleaning will take under 30 minutes to complete—this doesn’t mean you didn’t need the teeth cleaning or need cleanings less often, it means you should pat yourself on the back for taking good care of your teeth!

How long does a dental implant procedure take?

The length of time needed for a dental implant procedure depends on the number of implants being placed and the complexity of the surgery. In general, each implant takes about 30 minutes to place.
