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.

When you meet someone for the first time, what’s the first thing you notice? Sometimes, what we see first in others is what we want to change in ourselves. If for you that’s your smile, then get ready for inconspicuous change. With Invisalign clear braces, Dr. Steven J. Resnick and Dr. David S. Rosenfeld at Resnick & Rosenfeld DDS in Edison, NJ, can give you a smile you’ll never want to change or stop showing others.
Unlike traditional braces with metal brackets and wires, Invisalign aligners are made of clear, PBA-free plastic. So, there’s nothing poking or irritating the inside of your cheek or your gums. Best of all though, Invisalign clear braces—as the name implies—are practically invisible. For adults who have a professional career to consider, or for teens who are self-conscious about their looks, Invisalign aligners are the clear choice.
Getting Started with Invisalign
At your initial visit, Dr. Resnick or Dr. Rosenfeld will go over your smile goals and thoroughly examine your teeth and mouth. Then, with the aid of x-rays, pictures and impressions, a treatment plan will be developed. The Invisalign lab will then use this treatment plan to fabricate your custom-made Invisalign aligners. Your job, of course, is to wear your aligners day in and day out. Another advantage of Invisalign aligners is that you can remove them for eating or brushing and flossing. So, eat whatever you want and brush and floss as usual.
Approximately every two weeks you’ll change to the next set of aligners. With each progressive set, you’ll watch your teeth steadily move into position. When you’ve completed your treatment, you’ll have a smile that will be the first thing others notice about you.

Many people have reservations regarding their smile for many reasons, especially if your teeth are misaligned or your bite is off. Though you may think there is not a solution aside from traditional braces, you are wrong. Our amazing team at Resnick & Rosenfeld is proud to offer Invisalign Clear Braces to our patients!
Invisalign is better than traditional braces because they are virtually invisible on your teeth! There are no wires or brackets involved, leaving your more comfortable and confident in your smile. Using innovative technology, Invisalign gently straightens your teeth and aligns your bite between 6-24 months. Invisalign involves a series of aligners, each one representing a different stage in your straightening process, so you never wear the same aligner twice. Invisalign aligners are made to fit your mouth and your mouth only, and gently straighten your teeth, eliminating a lot of the pain associated with braces. You simply wear one retainer for two weeks, and then move to the next stage!
There are a lot of plusses associated with Invisalign, one of them being better oral health. At any point where you need to eat, drink, brush, or floss, you simply remove the retainer, and then reapply it when you are done. You also will be able to avoid the mouth full of metal you may have been worried about. With Invisalign, you look as natural as ever, doing your job while the braces do theirs. If you have any questions about Invisalign and how it can improve your smile, make an appointment at our office, and we’ll be glad to help!

Perfectly aligned teeth can be a truly valuable asset, both in professional and social settings where first impressions make all the difference. Sadly, though, many of us aren’t blessed with a smile that’s naturally straight, and no amount of diligent brushing or flossing can make much of a difference. You may have considered traditional braces, but as an adult, this method can seem out of reach – after all, noticeable results can take multiple years to develop, and you don’t want to have to spend all that time feeling like you’re back in middle school. But what can you do? Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld have the solution: Invisalign. With the help of Invisalign, patients in Edison and beyond can achieve the beautiful smile they’ve always dreamed of seamlessly!
The process is simple enough – our team here at Resnick and Rosenfeld, DDS, we’ll provide you with a series of clear aligners that have customized for your unique smile. All you have to do is wear each of them in order for the appropriate amount of time. Once you’re done with one set, simply move onto the next aligner in the sequence! Paired with only a few brief appointments at our office over time where we can check your progress, Invisalign treatment is simple, quick, and easy.
Benefits of Invisalign include:
- A near-invisible appearance – just like the name suggests, the aligners are clear and natural-looking, helping you to improve your smile without being forced to sacrifice your appearance in the process.
- Easy removability – you won’t have to make any annoying changes to your diet or oral healthcare routine!
- Much more comfort – the wires and brackets traditional braces use are often unpleasant and can cut into your oral tissue. Invisalign avoids these pitfalls with its smooth, customized aligners.
- Shorter treatment time – unlike regular braces, which can take two years or more to be fully successful, Invisalign treatment is usually completed in just 12-18 months.
Contact our Edison practice today to schedule an appointment! Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld can’t wait to give you a reason to smile. We also welcome patients from Clark, Plainfield, Scotch Plains, Westfield, Colonia, and beyond.

For many adults, it may seem too late to pursue their dream of having a beautifully straight smile. Traditional metal braces have been the go-to method for years, but for some people, it’s simply not worth it. After all, you’ve worked hard to create a polished, professional image in the workplace – the last thing you want is to feel like you’re back in middle school. Here at Resnick and Rosenfeld DDS, our team is committed to offering you dental solutions that are both effective and efficient, getting you the results you want with minimal discomfort. That’s why we’re happy to offer Invisalign as a cosmetic option at our Edison, NJ office. With the help of Invisalign, your teeth can be straightened quickly and seamlessly – no embarrassment required!
The way Invisalign works is simple – you’ll be provided with a set of clear aligners that were custom made to fit your unique mouth. Each of these aligners represents a stage of your straightening procedure; all you have to do is wear them in order for the predetermined amount of time, as well as attend check-ups every four-six weeks for us to make sure your progress is coming along smoothly.
Invisalign has several benefits over traditional metal braces, including:
- Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible; you won’t have to worry what your peers are thinking about your dental work. Instead, they’ll be dazzled by your straightened smile without having any idea how you got it!
- They’re removable, meaning that you won’t have to make any annoying changes to your diet or oral health routine.
- If you have a big event coming up that you want to look your best for, no problem – it’s perfectly okay to remove the aligner for a few hours and enjoy yourself. Just make sure to slide it back in when you’re finished!
- Typically, Invisalign treatment only lasts around 12-18 months – significantly less time than traditional metal braces, which can take up to two years or more.
