Here are some of our more popular services…
Exams and cleaning: We perform dental exams and cleanings at John R. Vitale, DMD @ Port Liberte in order to prevent or diagnose any problems you may have or might have in the future. Your dental exam starts with removing any plaque or calculus from your teeth then flossing, cleansing, fluoride treatments and polishing. We may also take a few x-rays of your teeth and jaw in order to examine the health of your mouth. Dr. Vitale will be able to better understand what is going on in your oral cavity by viewing these x-rays and may suggest any treatments or services needed to improve your dental health.
Digital X-Rays: At John R. Vitale, DMD @ Port Liberte we use digital imaging x-rays in order to assess any potential problems with your dental health. Digital x-rays are different from traditional x-rays in that they provide our patients with quicker and better results. Rather than use a dark room to develop the imaging, digital x-rays send the pictures right to our computer where the doctor can view them immediately. Digital x-ray dental imaging in our Jersey City office is a simple and painless process. Since every patient’s situation is different, we are happy to have this x-ray machine in order to allow us to determine which if any dental treatments are necessary to obtain optimal health.
Dentures: Get back that beautiful smile and functionality that you once had with full or partial dentures. Our team at the dental offices of John R. Vitale, DMD @ Port Liberte in Jersey City offers full dentures to our patients in order to replace all of their missing teeth or partial dentures if they are only missing a few teeth and need to replace those small gaps. Dentures look and feel just like your natural teeth. They help fill out your facial appearance and provide for a much more aesthetic smile. Dentures will also give you the ability to enjoy the foods you once loved but can no longer properly chew.
Root Canal Therapy: Do you have a badly infected or decayed tooth that is causing you pain? Dr. John R. Vitale, DMD offers root canal therapy in Port Liberte Jersey City. A root canal is needed when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected causing the pulp inside the tooth to become damaged. Our team will fix the problem by removing the damaged pulp and cleaning out the inside of your tooth. The final state is to seal your cleaned tooth with either a filling or a crown.
Teeth Bleaching and Veneers: Looking for a sparkling white “movie-star” smile? At John R. Vitale, DMD @ Port Liberte, we offer two different options for you to choose from when you are looking to whiten your teeth. Teeth Bleaching: We can bleach your teeth using many different types of methods including bleaching trays, in-office Zoom! whitening, whitening strips, whitening gels and more. During your appointment we can determine which method will work best for you. Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers are the most effective way to whiten your teeth. They also help to improve the overall shape and appearance of your smile. Veneers are wafer-thin shells that cover the surface of your teeth. You can choose the exact color of the veneers so that you can get the exact smile you are looking for.
