Despite our best efforts to keep our teeth looking their best, most of us experience some sort of cosmetic damage to our smiles at some point in our lives. When your smile is something you’d rather hide than share with those around you, it’s time to make a change for the better with cosmetic dentistry. At the Westfield, NJ dental practice of Dr. David M. Weinman, we offer an all-encompassing range of cosmetic dentistry services, including porcelain veneers.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin, stain-resistant sheaths of dental ceramic that are affixed to the front surfaces of your teeth to mask a variety of aesthetic flaws. Veneers are commonly used in cases that involve one or more of the following issues:
- Gaps between teeth that are visible when you smile
- Deep stains, particularly those that are resistant to professional teeth whitening
- Chips or cracks in enamel
- Teeth that are too small or misshapen
- Mild to moderate crowding or misalignment
Porcelain veneers are an ideal treatment option for patients who are facing multiple cosmetic issues, including everything from deep discoloration to chips or gaps between teeth. These custom shells of dental porcelain are finely crafted to precisely mimic the shape, size, and color of natural teeth. The porcelain used to create your veneers even reflects light in the same way that tooth enamel does, so you know that your smile will look natural and radiant.
A Brighter, More Confident Smile
Do you find that you often avoid showing your teeth when you smile? Are you embarrassed or self-conscious about your appearance due to aesthetic flaws? There’s never been a better time to take the first step on your journey toward a beautifully revitalized smile with porcelain veneers. Contact our office in Westfield, NJ today to schedule your cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Weinman. Our team can’t wait to welcome you to our family-friendly, state-of-the-art dental practice. We proudly serve patients from throughout Westfield and the surrounding areas, including Scotch Plains, Cranford, Fanwood, Mountainside, and beyond.

Healthy, properly aligned teeth serve as the foundation for a confident, attractive smile. If your teeth are crowded, crooked, or unevenly spaced, you may find that you feel self-conscious around others, particularly at work or in social situations. You may have thought about orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth in the past, but the notion of wearing metal braces simply doesn’t appeal to you. Fortunately, there is an alternative: Invisalign clear aligners from Dr. David M. Weinman in Westfield, NJ.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are made of a clear and durable acrylic material that is smooth and comfortable against your gums and lips. While metal brackets and wires may cause discomfort and irritation of the soft tissues in your mouth, Invisalign aligners are virtually unnoticeable and they can be removed for daily oral hygiene and eating.
Many Invisalign patients are adults who would like straighter teeth but also want to maintain a polished and professional appearance – something that is often difficult to achieve with conspicuous metal braces. Invisalign is also a great option for many teens; it is particularly helpful for adolescents who play sports or a musical instrument. Whereas regular braces can interfere with these activities, Invisalign can easily be worn comfortably and discreetly on the field, on the court, and in the band hall.
Dr. Weinman has actually used Invisalign himself, so he understands everything there is to experience when it comes to this innovative orthodontic treatment. He and his caring team are always here to answer any questions you may have about your treatment, offering their knowledge and guidance as you watch your new smile emerge.

For more than 150 years, cavities and other forms of tooth damage have been repaired with an amalgam of liquid mercury, silver, copper, tin, and other trace metals. While sufficient for restoring the structural integrity of a weakened tooth, amalgam fillings can be unsightly and unpredictable. Composite resin fillings – often referred to simply as tooth-colored fillings – are an aesthetically pleasing alternative to amalgam fillings, offering a natural look and long-lasting durability. At the office of Dr. David M. Weinman in Westfield, NJ, Dr. Weinman offers a comprehensive selection of restorative dentistry solutions, including tooth-colored fillings.
Advantages of Composite Resin Fillings
The most obvious reason that patients prefer composite resin fillings to silver amalgam fillings is the cosmetic benefit that they offer. Meticulously customized to match the shade of your existing enamel, tooth-colored fillings blend seamlessly into your smile for a completely natural appearance.
Composite resin’s cosmetic advantages aren’t the only reason that they’ve become more popular over the past 20 years; unlike amalgam fillings, tooth-colored fillings are resistant to changes in temperature. Teeth repaired with mercury amalgam fillings are substantially more susceptible to microfractures that eventually compromise the strength of the enamel, whereas composite fillings maintain their shape and size regardless of exposure to heat and cold. Tooth-colored fillings also require that less of your natural tooth structure be removed, making them a considerably more conservative dental solution as compared to amalgam fillings.
Schedule Your Visit Today
Whether you are in need of a new filling or you are interested in improving the appearance of your smile with composite resin restorations, Dr. Weinman and his experienced, friendly team of dental professionals can help. Contact our office in Westfield, NJ today to schedule your consultation, and discover for yourself what a difference our genuinely caring approach and advanced technology can make in your next dental experience. Our warm, welcoming Westfield dental office is proud to serve patients from throughout the surrounding areas of Cranford, Scotch Plains, Mountainside, Fanwood, and more. We look forward to serving you and helping you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted with cosmetic and restorative dentistry.

As we age, our teeth gradually succumb to the effects of our actions and our environment. Enamel deteriorates and can begin to show signs of yellowing, staining, and other discoloration as early as your mid-20s. If you often find yourself covering your mouth when you laugh or avoid smiling altogether, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans report feeling dissatisfied with the appearance of their teeth. At his office in Westfield, NJ, Dr. David M. Weinman offers professional teeth whitening treatments that restore your smile’s natural beauty and your confidence – all in a way that suits your lifestyle.
How Can Teeth Whitening Help Me?
There are a number of reasons that teeth may become dull, yellow, or otherwise stained, resulting in a lackluster smile that you’re less than pleased to show off. Red wine, tea, coffee, and soft drinks are common culprits, as are tobacco and certain antibiotic medications. Fortunately, modern dental technology allows your local cosmetic dentistry professional to turn back the hands of time with teeth whitening services that fit into your busy schedule. For your convenience and comfort, Dr. Weinman offers two smile brightening options that promise dramatic, lasting results.
The first teeth whitening method – an in-office treatment that takes about an hour to complete – is perfect for patients who want a brighter, more luminescent smile as soon as possible. Have a big job interview next week? What about a graduation, wedding, or class reunion? We welcome you to sit in one of our many comfortable dental chairs and relax while the Boost whitening system lifts years of stains from your teeth.
For patients who’d rather whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own homes, Dr. Weinman offers a convenient solution that can prove just as effective as in-office whitening. With our take-home whitening system, you simply apply the advanced tooth-brightening formula when it’s easiest for you. We’ll customize a set of comfortable, easy-to-use trays that fit your unique dentition, providing exceptional whitening results in as little as two weeks.
Achieve the Beautifully White Smile of Your Dreams
Whether you’ve spent years feeling unhappy with your smile, or you simply want to show off brighter, whiter teeth for an upcoming special occasion, Dr. Weinman and his team can help. Contact our office in Westfield, NJ today to find out how our comprehensive selection of advanced cosmetic dentistry options can help you. Our conveniently located practice also proudly serves patients from surrounding communities in Mountainside, Cranford, Scotch Plains, Fanwood, and beyond. We can’t wait to see your beautiful smile!

For many adults, it may seem like it’s too late to pursue their dream of having a set of perfectly straight teeth. After all, you’ve worked hard to create a professional image that you can feel proud of – the last thing you need is a mouthful of metal that makes you feel like you’re back in middle school. The truth is, traditional metal braces may work well for children, but many patients agree that they’re just not worth it in the long run. Here in Westfield, NJ, the last thing Dr. David Weinman wants is for anyone to give up on improving their smile; that’s why he’s happy to offer treatment options that provide effective results with only minimal discomfort. Even the most self-conscious patients can achieve the look of their dreams with Invisalign, a seamless orthodontic option that lives up to its name!
The process is simple enough – you’ll be provided with a series of clear, customized aligners that each represent a different stage of your smile as it moves into its ideal alignment. All you need to is wear each one for the appropriate amount of time before switching to the next in the set. We’ll also need to see you every four to six weeks so that Dr. Weinman can ensure that everything is going smoothly.
Invisalign has countless benefits when compared with traditional braces, including:
- Seamlessness – the aligners are virtually unnoticeable, meaning that your friends and coworkers probably won’t ever notice they’re there at all. They’ll only be marveling at the beautiful results that follow!
- Removability – unlike metal braces, which have to stay in place 24/7, Invisalign aligners can be removed in order to eat and/or practice oral hygiene, meaning that you won’t have to make any frustrating changes to your life in order to accommodate them.
- Comfort – there are no poking metal wires or uncomfortable tightening sessions to contend with; only clear, smooth plastic that’s been custom-made to slide over your teeth.
- Speed – Invisalign treatment usually only lasts around 12-18 months, which is a significant improvement when compared to the multiple years traditional braces can need to be fully effective.
Contact our Westfield, NJ office to schedule an appointment! Dr. Weinman and his team can’t wait to give you something to smile about this holiday season. We also serve the areas of Scotch Plains, Fanwood, Cranford, Mountainside, and beyond.
Dr. Weinman Dispels Some of the Myths about Porcelain Veneers for Patients from Westfield and Beyond
October 11, 2013
When your smile is suffering from a number of imperfections, such as chips, cracks, or even gaps, it can seem like an exhausting process to go through multiple procedures in order to correct all of these problems. That’s why porcelain veneers have become such a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment! Painstakingly customized and crafted out of beautiful, natural looking dental porcelain, this transformative piece can give your smile a complete do-over, covering up all sorts of visual flaws that can hinder self-confidence with a brand-new, stunning look. However, our office has heard several myths about porcelain veneers over the years that may be holding some patients back from pursuing this treatment. Here in Westfield, Dr. David Weinman and his team want to be the first to assuage your fears and help you receive the dental care of your dreams! Here are just a few of the myth surrounding porcelain veneers and the truth behind them:
You have to cut down my whole tooth to complete the process!
This is a definite exaggeration. Your teeth will require some reshaping in order to create a true natural look – after all, the last think you want is for your new smile to look bulky! Still, the amount of tooth structure that has to be removed is not excessive, and many lab technicians can create veneers as thin as 2mm, or the width of a single contact lens.
They’re incredibly painful!
During the procedure, Dr. Weinman and his team will make sure you’re anesthetized fully so that there is no sensation at any point. The only sensitivity that should occur happens when you’re wearing the temporary veneers we’ll provide while your permanent ones are being made.
I don’t want them to be unnaturally white!
We’re happy to make them whatever color you want! While some patients enjoy a blazing white color, Dr. Weinman will be happy to assist you in picking a color that best fits your smile.
I can’t afford them!
Thankfully, we offer a variety of financial options, including extended payments. Your payments could even be less than $200 a month! This could help some patients who need some financial breathing room still achieve the smile of their dreams.
Contact our Westfield, NJ office today to schedule your appointment! Our team can’t wait to give you a reason to smile. We also serve the areas of Scotch Plains, Fanwood, Cranford, Mountainside, and beyond.
