CROWNS & BRIDGES
The main difference between a bridge and a crown is the way in which they function. While a crown is used to cover an existing tooth, a dental bridge is used to fill in the missing space caused by one or more lost teeth. A bridge is made up of one or more false teeth with one crown on either end of the bridge.
In cases where teeth have become decayed, damaged, or lost altogether, restorative dental procedures are used to repair the issue and maintain proper function. With a restoration, your tooth can continue to function and be a healthy component of your beautiful smile.
Every restoration we create is crafted for both durability and esthetics. We recognize how important it is to have a smile that is both comfortable and long-lasting, and we take your needs seriously. Please contact us to learn more or schedule a first visit.
What Is A Dental Crown?
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain are the most popular. They are highly durable and will last many years.
What Is A Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge offers a highly effective, stable, and fixed solution for replacing missing teeth. The crowns that fill in for the missing teeth are held in place with crowns attached to the adjacent healthy teeth. Bridges are an affordable option for tooth replacement, particularly if you are not a good candidate for dental implants.
A healthy smile happens by prioritizing your daily regimen and professional routine visits. At Vineland Modern Dentistry, our goal is to keep you from needing invasive and urgent treatments by tackling the small problems before they have a chance to progress. That’s why we focus our efforts on thorough preventive dental treatments, like semi-annual checkups and cleaning.
Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Cleanings and oral exams are essential for every patient, and we highly recommend you see Dr. Jadun regularly every six months. Our experienced dentist and compassionate team members are dedicated to restoring your smile and your dental health.
When gingivitis or mild gum disease is allowed to progress, periodontitis or periodontal disease can overtake your mouth. This disease can put you at risk for losing your teeth, plus affect your health and well-being.
Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your back teeth, sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic coating is painted on the surface of the tooth. Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing cannot reach.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Catching oral cancer in its early stages before it spreads and becomes more serious can save a patient’s life. During your regular checkup and teeth cleaning, Dr. Jadun will provide an oral exam to check on your overall oral health. This will include a detailed review of your gums and teeth.
Fluoride occurs naturally and is found in food and water. In addition to preventing tooth decay and cavities, it can also help in the remineralization of tooth enamel. When fluoride is deposited on the surface of teeth, it helps make them resistant to acids created by plaque and sugars. These treatments are quick, painless, and one of the easiest ways to keep your teeth healthy between appointments.

At some point, extraction of a tooth may be the only option available. Sometimes a tooth needs to be removed in order to preserve your oral health. Dr Jadun may determine that you need a tooth extraction for various reasons.
Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth, or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
Your dentist at Vineland Modern Dentistry have been trained to preserve every tooth if possible. When extraction is necessary, his training and experience allows him to perform the treatment as painless as possible.

CLEAR ALIGNER THERAPY
Choosing to straighten your teeth is a big decision that affects not only your appearance, but your lifestyle as well. You may be looking to improve your smile for business and social reasons, or even for a special occasion. Either way, clear aligners can provide a simple way to accomplish this without having to put your life on hold.
How Does Clear Aligner Orthodontics Work?
Aligners are designed to make small movements at a time, by putting gentle pressure on your teeth. You’ll need an x-ray and exam to ensure you are a good fit for them. The clear aligner trays are created for you based on measurements and digital images taken of your smile. Once made, the clear aligners are fitted into your mouth to ensure they are snug and comfortable.
What Are The Benefits Of Clear Aligner Orthodontics?
Clear aligners offer a few key benefits that make them one of the most sought after solutions in teeth straightening today due to some the following benefits:
They are hard to see because the trays are clear.
Fast results. Clear aligner trays are efficient. They can often help to move your teeth faster than other types of braces.
You can remove the trays from time to time. This helps with improving dental hygiene and allows you to easily maintain your healthy oral habits.
Your diet and social life won’t be affected since you’ll be able to remove your aligners before meals or drinks.
Am I A Good Candidate For Clear Aligner Orthodontics?
While many prefer to wear clear aligners over traditional braces, they are not available to certain patients. Strides have been made with clear aligners to accommodate the needs of more people, but they still are not able to serve as a viable teeth straightening option for individuals with moderate to severe cases of misaligned teeth.
Not sure if you’re a good candidate, or if clear aligners will work for you? The best way to find out is by scheduling an orthodontic consultation at Vineland Modern Dentistry.
We provide both in-office (best results) and at-home Zoom whitening treatments.
If you want to touch-up to your smile (or kick-start the whitening process), Zoom QuickPro gives affordable, immediate results. The beauty with this is that you spend very little time in the dentist’s chair, and you can be on your way almost straight after our varnishes have been applied. You’ll get noticeable results, with a smile up to 4 shades brighter in only 30 minutes.
If you choose QuickPro, your treatment can be tagged conveniently to the end of a normal check-up. It takes around 10 minutes to apply, and it doesn’t involve the whitening lamp, so you can be on the move in no time.
Once your dental professional has checked the current shade of your teeth, they’ll take you through these simple QuickPro steps:
Your dentist takes care to prep your mouth and gums.
A thin layer of whitening varnish is applied to each tooth, drying almost instantly.
This is followed by a layer of protective sealant that keeps your mouth safe from sensitivity.
You can be on your way! Whether you head home, or back to the office, all that’s left is to brush off the dried varnish after 30 minutes.
If you're looking for the most dramatic results, we also offer Zoom WhiteSpeed. In 45 minutes your teeth could be up to 8 shades whiter, reversing stains from food and drinks, aging, even discoloration from some types of medication. You’ll leave the dentist chair with an instantly brighter, more confident smile.
If you choose WhiteSpeed, your treatment starts with your dentist checking your current shade, so you can both see the dramatic difference after your treatment is complete.
Once you’re ready, just sit back as your dental professional handles the next steps:
Your dentist preps your mouth for whitening and applies a layer of advanced whitening gel to your teeth.
To speed up the whitening process, they’ll shine our WhiteSpeed blue LED lamp onto your teeth. This accelerates the whitening, plus the lamp’s variable settings ensure you’ll get a comfortable experience.
This is repeated three times - and is completed in just 45 minutes!
Once you’ve reached your desired shade, your dentist will apply our post-treatment gel to help protect enamel and reduce sensitivity.
Before you leave your dentist’s office, you’ll receive customized whitening trays and a take home whitening kit, which is included in the price of your treatment. This way, you can top-up the brightness of your smile whenever you want to.
