Most of our patients know how their whole body health effects their teeth. Certain foods can be detrimental – more sugar means higher risk for cavities, dark foods and drinks may lead to staining, and acidic foods weaken the enamel. Certain health conditions lead to reduced saliva production and chronic dry mouth. However, many patients aren’t aware of how their oral health and hygiene effects their body. At Resnick & Rosenfeld, DDS, we believe it’s essential for patients to be educated about all of the ways oral health and whole body health intersect. Contact our friendly Edison dental team to schedule a checkup today. Our knowledgeable dentists and team members will be happy to walk you through the most effective oral hygiene practices to ensure your optimal oral and overall health.

Some things should be yellow. Rubber ducks, lemon pound cake, the morning sun… but your teeth? No. The same can be said for gray and brown — these are colors just don’t want to associate with your teeth. Unfortunately, cup after cup of coffee, long evenings sipping red wine and almost any other delicious thing life has to offer will leave your smile dingy and dirty looking — and that’s certainly not attractive.

When you are considering the alternatives available for tooth replacement, you have more than one option. You could choose a partial or full denture or crown and bridgework. Dentists agree, however, the most lifelike alternative is a dental implant. With a dental implant, Dr. Steven J. Resnick and Dr. David S. Rosenfeld of Resnick & Rosenfeld in Edison, NJ, replace both the root and crown of a missing tooth. By doing so, you have a replacement that looks like a natural tooth and offers the same stability.
People have missing teeth for any number of different reasons, which may include severe tooth decay, gum disease, injury, a failed root canal, abnormal wear and tear or congenital defects. The importance of replacing missing teeth cannot be overstated, not only from the standpoint of maintaining good oral health, but overall health, too. Just one missing tooth can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, shifting teeth and the loss of other teeth. Moreover, missing teeth can hinder people’s ability to consume healthy diets, and they may even be reluctant to smile and laugh knowing that others will see that they have teeth that are missing.
Dental Implants: The Lifelike Solution
Once Dr. Resnick or Dr. Rosenfeld determines that you’re a qualified candidate for dental implants, then you’re on your way to having a full smile again. Having a dental implant is actually a two-step process. First, one of our dentists will surgically implant a small titanium post in your jaw where you previously had a tooth root. This biocompatible post and the surrounding bone tissue fuse together as you heal, thereby creating a foundation that mimics the one that existed with your natural tooth root and jawbone. Moreover, the post stimulates new bone tissue growth, making bone deterioration far less likely.
Once you’ve completely healed and the post and bone have had time to fuse sufficiently, you’ll return to Resnick & Rosenfeld where one of the dentists will attach a porcelain crown to the post. With this in place, you have a tooth replacement that looks and functions like a real tooth.

Believe it or not, people who have white teeth are thought to be happier, more out-going, smarter and more successful. All this from a white smile! Still don’t believe us? Well then, schedule an appointment for teeth whitening at the office of Resnick & Rosenfeld in Edison, NJ, and see what happens when you smile.
Teeth become stained and discolored for a number of reasons, including:
- Our favorite beverages and foods, such as coffee, cola, tea, chocolate, tomato sauce, blueberries, carrots and oranges
- Tobacco use
- Teeth grinding and clenching, which results in microscopic cracks that make the biting edge of teeth seem darker
- Some medications, such as the antibiotic tetracycline
- The unavoidable aging process
- Cracks in teeth where stains and food debris can hide
- The starting color of your teeth, which may be somewhat yellow or gray
Whatever the reason, you can improve the appearance of your smile with teeth whitening from Dr. Steven Resnick and Dr. David Rosenfeld.
In-office Teeth Whitening
To whiten your teeth as quickly as possible, Resnick & Rosenfeld offers Zoom! Teeth Whitening. With this system we apply a bleaching gel to your teeth and activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide gel with a special light. As the hydrogen peroxide breaks down, oxygen enters the tooth to bleach stains while leaving the structure unaffected. In about an hour, you’ll see remarkable results.
At-home Teeth Whitening
If you don’t have time in your schedule for an appointment for in-office teeth whitening, or if you simply prefer to whiten in the privacy of your own home on your own time, then we offer at-home teeth whitening kits, too. We’ll give you custom made teeth whitening trays for you to use with a specially formulated whitening gel.

If you could change your smile, would you? Is there just something that bothers you about the smile you see in the mirror every day? Well, with cosmetic dentistry from Resnick & Rosenfeld you can change your smile. People in and around Edison, NJ, have had their smiles upgraded thanks to cosmetic dentistry, and you can too!
Dr. Steven J. Resnick and Dr. David S. Rosenfeld offer a number of cosmetic procedures that will not only beautify your smile they’ll improve your oral health and boost your confidence. Let’s take a look at some of these procedures.
People with white smiles are considered to be younger, smarter and more out-going. At the dental office of Resnick & Rosenfeld, we offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening systems. In-office, we use Zoom! teeth whitening. With this system, we apply a bleaching gel that is activated with a special light. If you prefer to avoid an office appointment and would rather whiten at home, we’ll give you custom made teeth whitening trays for you to use with a specially formulated whitening gel.
If you would like to fix a number of smile flaws—discoloration and stains, chipped and cracked teeth, teeth with gaps in between or teeth that are misaligned—then consider porcelain veneers. These dental wonders are made of ultra-thin sheets of dental porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth in your smile zone to conceal and repair those flaws. Our dentists will custom design your veneers, so they look completely natural.
Metal-free Crowns and Bridges
For teeth that are in need of repair due to extensive decay, a severe crack or a failed root canal, there are metal-free crowns. These all porcelain tooth restorations fully encase a tooth to restore appearance and function. Crowns can also be placed on the teeth that are adjacent to a missing tooth in order to anchor bridgework.
As the name implies, Invisalign straightens teeth almost invisibly. With a series of clear plastic aligners that you change out every couple of weeks, you’ll gradually see your teeth move into their proper position. With Invisalign, you can enjoy treatment that’s more discreet than with traditional braces.
