That is why we participate with many major insurance companies and do our best to help our patients maximize their insurance.

We explain treatment expenses upfront so that you do not have any surprises when it comes to paying for your dental care. We know our patients value our willingness to communicate clearly on financial matters.

For those patients who do not have insurance or who wish to have cosmetic dental procedures that are not covered by their insurance, we offer in-house discount plans and third-party financing options.

We discuss financial arrangements on an individual basis, and in most cases, to qualify for one of the financing plans requires a minimum dollar amount. Some options may be available for only specific procedures. The best way to learn about your financial options is to call us or schedule a consultation so we can go over your treatment options, insurance coverage, payment options, and financing options.

Our team will submit your dental claims and estimate any expenses for you so that you do not encounter any financial surprises. We accurately code and bill for your procedures so we do not delay the process.

In the event that you elect to have a procedure that is not covered or only partially covered by your insurance company, we can help you determine the cost and work out a financial arrangement with you so you can proceed with treatment. For treatment such as cosmetic procedures and elective procedures, you may only receive partial coverage or none at all. We can explain your treatment plan and coverage to you in detail.

With thousands of different insurance companies, the best way to get accurate information about your coverage is to call your insurance company or give us a call and we can help. We strive to make your dental care as easy as possible by handling some of the red tape for you.  

If you need dental care, especially in the case of a chronic issue that causes pain, you shouldn't wait to see a dentist. Patients without dental insurance worry about the cost, and in some cases, it can prevent them from seeking the dental care they need.

Cosmetic Dentistry

woman brushing teethAt Monroe Dental Arts, we focus on both function and beauty when it comes to dentistry. All of the work we do is beautiful. Sometimes healthy patients come to us and want to improve the appearance of their smiles. Dr. H.K. Virdee is a talented artist when it comes to improving the esthetics of your teeth. From simple procedures such as whitening to full smile makeovers, you will be in good hands at our dental office.

Professional teeth whitening is one of the quickest and least expensive ways to improve your smile. Over the years, your smile can grow dark because of the stains left by certain foods and beverages. Professional teeth whitening can remove years off your smile and restore your confidence in your smile.

Cosmetic Dental Services

We offer other services that provide more dramatic results such as cosmetic dental bonding for smaller repairs to your smile and porcelain veneers for the most dramatic smile transformation available.

We also offer orthodontic services with Invisalign for our adult and some teen patients wishing to improve the straightness of their teeth. Invisalign is performed without the need for brackets and wires.

Contact Our Monroe Township Dental Office

If you would like to improve your smile, don’t hesitate! Give us a call and we can schedule a cosmetic evaluation with Dr. H.K. Virdee so you can have the smile you always wanted.

If you are thinking about cosmetic dentistry, you have probably heard a lot about veneers, but you may not completely understand what they are.

Veneers are versatile dental restorations that look like a thin porcelain shell. They resemble a natural tooth but can actually improve your appearance dramatically by correcting such problems as:woman getting dental veneers

  • Shortened/worn teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Misalignment/gaps

Veneers require prep work to your teeth. In most cases, this will include removing a small amount of enamel to make room for your veneers and ensure a natural look. Without prepping your teeth, your veneers would appear bulky and false. Because of this, veneers are a lifelong commitment. They are also life-changing, and most of our patients tell us they wish they had gotten them sooner because their veneers make them feel proud of the way they look.

If you take great care of your veneers, your teeth, and your gums, you can expect veneers to last many years! Maintaining great oral health is essential to protecting your investment in your smile.

Contact Our Monroe Dental Clinic

At our Monroe Township, NJ dental office, we are always happy to answer any questions you may have about veneers or any other dental procedures. Give us a call!

Crowns and Bridges

Having a missing tooth can lead to feeling self-conscious about the way you look or even make it more difficult for you to eat. At Monroe Dental Arts, we offer tooth-replacement options including the fixed dental bridge.

dental tools near chair in dental officeTooth Replacement Option

Dental bridges are a great option for patients facing dental extractions or who already have a missing tooth. Dental bridges “bridge” the gap in your smile by placing an artificial tooth in the place of the missing tooth. The replacement tooth is attached to two healthy crowned teeth adjacent to the gap in your smile. A dental bridge keeps your teeth from shifting toward the space left by your missing tooth, which is a great way to preserve the integrity of your bite.

Shifting teeth also lead to other problems like exposed roots and misalignment. A dental bridge keeps this process from happening by acting as a placeholder. Bridges also fill in the space from your missing tooth, making your smile complete again.

Contact Our Monroe Township NJ Clinic

Each of the dental bridges we create at our Monroe Township, NJ dental office will match your natural teeth, so no one will notice you have a dental bridge. Keeping your gums around your dental bridge healthy is essential. We can go over ways to get the most out of your dentistry when you come in for your next dental appointment.

Dental crowns are versatile, addressing a number of conditions to add stability and comfort to a tooth that has sustained disease or trauma. Crowns can also provide preventive treatment as part of a comprehensive treatment plan or for teeth that are unstable or compromised. 

dental crown processConditions That May Need a Crown

Some of the conditions leading to a dental crown recommendation include:

A broken or fractured tooth – A filling is often not enough to support and protect a broken or fractured tooth. A dental crown completely covers the tooth above the gumline and absorbs some of the force of chewing.

Worn teeth – Teeth that have been exposed to bruxism (clenching and grinding) over a long period of time may have exposed dentin that feels sensitive. A dental crown can restore the size and shape of the tooth.

Root canal teeth – A root canal leaves teeth more brittle, but when combined with a dental crown, you can enjoy the same comfort, function, and stability of your natural tooth.

Cosmetic solutions – Covering an unattractive or dark tooth with a dental crown or veneer can improve the appearance of your smile and add confidence.

Replacing large fillings – Large amalgam fillings might need to be replaced with a dental crown as removing large fillings can leave the tooth unstable.

Teeth with deep decay – If decay goes deep enough, a dental crown may be more suitable for long-term protection.

Give us a call if you have any more questions!


Dental Implants

Dental implants consist of three parts: the implant post, custom abutment (attachment), and the dental implant crown.

Dental Implants Posts

Dental implant posts, or screws as they are sometimes called, are typically made of titanium or another type of biocompatible metal. These are unbreakable and will not deteriorate within the body.

woman smiling with dental implantsDental Implant Abutments

Abutments are attachments that secure to the dental implant post and provide a foundation for the dental crown. Abutments are typically custom-designed because the dental implant post may be placed at a specific angle to embed in the densest part of the bone. The abutment will make it possible to attach a dental crown correctly, so the crown fits perfectly with adjacent and opposing teeth.

We use tooth-colored dental implants in our Monroe Township dental office. The dental implant crown itself, typically made of porcelain, offers durability. Porcelain is natural-looking and long-lasting but is also susceptible to the same trauma as the enamel covering natural teeth. 

Dental implant crowns are not fragile, but they are breakable. When eating foods like cherries and olives, use caution because even foods that claim to be pitted can still contain pits that can break a crown. Don’t chew on ice or hard candy.

If you do break a dental implant crown, the underlying dental implant may still be undamaged and promptly replacing the crown will keep your teeth from shifting.

Contact Our Monroe Township Dental Clinic

If you break a dental implant crown, or to learn more about dental implants in Monroe Township, contact Monroe Dental Arts to schedule an appointment.

Not only are dental implants the best replacement for missing teeth because they closely mimic your natural teeth, but caring for dental implants is easy. Dental implants are a low maintenance, long-lasting solution to missing teeth.

woman smiling after getting dental implantsPermanent Tooth Replacement Option

Unlike dentures, which you need to remove for cleaning, dental implants permanently integrate into your jawbone just like your tooth root. All you need to do to care for your implants is brush and floss as you normally would. And although dental implants cannot develop decay as your natural teeth can, brushing and flossing regularly is crucial for your gum health. Gum disease puts your dental implants at risk.

Importance of Regular Dental Cleanings

It’s also crucial to visit your dentist twice each year for examinations and cleanings. This will also enable your dentist to keep an eye on your dental implant to ensure it's in good shape and functioning properly.

Using common sense and avoiding using your teeth as tools is also essential. Don’t chew on hard candies or ice as this too can damage the implants.

Call Our Monroe Township Dental Clinic

If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to learn more about dental implants, we invite you to contact our Monroe Township, NJ practice to make an appointment for a consultation.


The cost of dental implants in Monroe Township, NJ varies for several reasons.

First, we look at any necessary pretreatments you’ll need to make you a candidate for dental implants. Pretreatments may include bone grafting, professional teeth cleaning, gum treatments, or addressing any issues found during your initial exam.

Next, we consider how many implants you need to complete your smile and whether you’re looking for a single implant or implant-supported restorations like dentures or bridges.

Cost Transparency on Dental Implants

However, your dentist will share the cost with you following your consultation and initial exam. At this point, we know more about your oral health and what is involved in making you a candidate for implant dentistry.

We use only quality materials and the latest techniques and technologies for dental implants in Monroe Township to give you a lasting, beautiful, and fully functioning dental implant.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root created from durable titanium. This material bonds or integrates into your jawbone, laying the foundation for a new tooth or other prosthetic. Your implants will always be customized and image-guided for superior results.

At Monroe Dental Arts, Dr. Har Simran K. Virdee and her dedicated dental team can help you determine if you need to see us right away and how to handle your situation until you can see us. 

man holding jaw during a dental emergencyIs It a Dental Emergency?

Certain dental emergencies are considerate enough to announce their presence via excruciating pain, swelling, or bleeding. Anytime you experience a dental issue that is highly unusual, please let us know immediately. 

Other dental emergencies, while annoying, can wait until the next available dental appointment. Knowing which is which can save you time and money. 

Come See Us ASAP If:

  • Gums will not stop bleeding
  • Knocked-out or broken tooth
  • Injury to jaw or mouth
  • Swelling
  • Painful tooth pain
  • Unusual tooth sensitivity

Contact Our Monroe Township Dental Clinic

Dental emergencies often need immediate medical attention—often within a certain timeframe. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, call your emergency dentist in Monroe Township, NJ, today so we can try to see you the same day. 

Dental problems can readily bloom into complicated and severe situations, which is why routine dental check-ups and exams are part of our preventive dentistry solution. The more often your neighborhood dentist can see you, the better chances we have of avoiding a dental emergency. 

Preventive treatments that protect teeth from dental issues are a vital part of general dentistry in Monroe Township, NJ. One treatment that falls under this category is fluoride which we apply to teeth. Fluoride treatment combines with your tooth enamel in a process called remineralization, which rebuilds thin and worn enamel to help it resist tooth decay.

At Monroe Dental Arts, we are skilled at providing general dentistry and oral health care for patients of all ages. The primary way we provide general dentistry is through your regular dental visits, where we provide thorough examinations and professional dental cleanings. If our exam reveals dental decay, we may recommend a fluoride treatment to address the problem.

How Does Flouride Treatment Work?

During a fluoride treatment, we will ensure your teeth are prepared, clean, and dry so the treatment will work. Then, one of our dental professionals paints a prescription-strength fluoride gel on all tooth surfaces. The gel must remain on your teeth for up to several minutes, and after your treatment, you should avoid eating, drinking, or smoking.

We can also apply a fluoride treatment to the roots of your teeth. If you suffer from dry mouth, fluoride treatments can help as saliva is instrumental in washing away debris and neutralizing the acids present in some foods and drinks. General dentistry and preventive dental treatments like fluoride can improve your oral health significantly.

Starting with an emphasis on prevention, Dr. Virdee and Dr. Mishriky, your Monroe Township, NJ dentists, provide the best cosmetic and general dentistry available in the area.

We recommend regular dental exams and professional teeth cleaning because those are two of the best ways to help you avoid dental problems.

GLO™ Science Teeth Whitening

Up until the development of GLO™ Science Teeth Whitening, the benefit of light-activated whitening was limited to in-office dental treatments. At Monroe Dental Arts, we wanted to provide our patients with the best of both worlds by introducing GLO™ Science Teeth Whitening to take home with you.

Professional Teeth Whiteningman and woman smiling

GLO™ combines professional-strength whitening gel, customized teeth bleaching trays, and light activation to achieve the whitest results without the blotchy results available from pharmacy products. Pharmacy whitening systems are often unpredictable and can cause teeth sensitivity. Teeth bleaching is always more effective under the supervision of a qualified dentist.

In the office, we will provide a gingival barrier to protect your gums during treatment. We will apply the gel and activate it with the lighted mouthpiece. It will turn off on its own after just eight minutes.

At home, you will use the exact same activator light and custom whitening trays, along with enough gel for 40 applications. You can enjoy the most brilliant results available with modern dentistry today.

The Invisalign system treats many types of tooth misalignment commonly addressed by traditional orthodontic care. But while older treatments involve uncomfortable braces or other oral appliances, Invisalign utilizes a series of molded, plastic trays which fit over your teeth and, over time, realign your smile.

While many believe this correction is all about appearance, aligned teeth are easier to clean and less susceptible to tooth decay. Here is a selection of the significant orthodontic conditions corrected by Invisalign in Monroe Township

close up of woman using Invisalign from Monroe Dental ArtsSpacing and Crowding Issues

Some alignment issues are related to how much space your mouth offers for your teeth. Cases with insufficient space are called crowding, where an excess of room between teeth is called spacing. When your teeth grow without enough space in your mouth, they tend to overlap or shift out of place. One of the things Invisalign resolves is crowded teeth.

Spacing issues occur when gaps exist between your teeth, causing poor tooth alignment between your upper and lower rows. Invisalign is an excellent way to rid your teeth of unsightly gaps.

Overbite and Underbite

Invisalign also fixes misalignments in your bite. An overbite is where your top teeth stick out in front of your bottom teeth, and an underbite is the opposite, where your bottom teeth protrude beyond your top teeth. Depending on the intensity of your overbite, Invisalign can usually correct this issue. However, an underbite requires more assessment as severe cases might need oral surgery combined with Invisalign to resolve the condition.

Correct Your Teeth Alignment Problems in Monroe Township

Crooked teeth are not only unattractive, but they can also harm your oral health. Invisalign corrects misalignment conditions in both your teeth and your bite. Call Monroe Dental Arts today to see if Invisalign is right for you.

Minor Dental Surgery

Today’s advanced x-rays emit far less radiation than the old film methods. In fact, dental x-rays have always been among the lowest radiation medical x-rays. With the switch to digital, x-rays further reduced radiation emissions by 80%. In fact, you receive more radiation in certain climates just by being outside in the sun.

Benefits of Dental X-raysgloved hand holding dental x-ray

When you think of the benefits of dental x-rays, they really are valuable with very little risk. We can detect decay, bone loss, infections, tumors, abscesses, cysts, and growths with digital x-rays that would be otherwise invisible with a visual exam alone.

At Monroe Dental Arts, we take periodic x-rays based on patient need. Dr. H.K. Virdee will look over your x-rays, and we will inform you if we find anything that requires your attention.

Digital x-rays can help us detect dental conditions early and allows us to address the problem before it progresses. Early detection and treatment can help you avoid unnecessary cost, pain, and extensive treatments in the future.

Call Our Monroe Township Dental Clinic

If you have questions or concerns about your routine dental x-rays, give us a call and we can address those for you.

Tooth Extraction Aftercare

You will want to give yourself time to rest immediately after your tooth extraction and for a day or two after. It's normal to have some residual bleeding and even some swelling right after your procedure. However, if your bleeding is severe, please contact Monroe Dental Arts right away.

You may want to take some prescription pain medication the first day or two after your extraction procedure to help you relax, rest, and alleviate discomfort. Soft foods are also recommended for the first few days after a tooth extraction. Warm salt water rinses are helpful during this time.

Avoid spitting, smoking, or drinking out of a straw to prevent pulling out the blood clot that should be forming in the extraction site. You can brush your teeth but avoid the extraction site.

Contact Our Monroe Township Dental Clinic

It takes around two weeks for a tooth extraction site to completely heal. Remember, we are here for you during that time. We encourage you to contact your Monroe Township dentist if you have any problems or concerns during your recovery.



Your Monroe Township, NJ dentist is determined to keep your teeth and gums safe between dental visits. This is why we create custom mouthguards to keep your smile sheltered from oral injuries during sports or rough play.

Bruxism or teeth grinding and clenching is a common problem that exerts significant force on your teeth. The results show up in the form of headaches, jaw, neck, and shoulder pain, and excessive wear on your teeth.     

man sleeping soundly after getting nightguardIt’s a widespread problem because it often occurs during sleep. The result is that teeth grinding and clenching often go undiagnosed, but the symptoms appear all the same Fortunately, once your dentist sees evidence of teeth grinding, a custom nightguard is often all our Monroe Township patients need for relief.

How a Nightguard Can Help

A nightguard acts as a protective barrier by making it impossible for your upper and lower teeth to come into direct contact. This minimizes the stress placed on your teeth, gives your jaw joint a chance to rest and recover, and helps reduce painful symptoms.

Dr. H.K. Virdee will design your customized night guards using impressions taken of your teeth. This ensures a comfortable, snug fit and makes a nightguard an effective weapon against the ravages of teeth grinding and clenching.

Partial and Complete Dentures

If you had parents or grandparents with dentures, you might have an old-fashioned idea of what they look like and how they function. If you saw dentures in a glass of water or outside of their mouths that probably meant that they weren’t comfortable to wear all day. Fortunately, modern dentures have come a long way to a comfortable and modern fit and appearance.

One of the common misconceptions regarding dentures is that they last forever. You have probably noticed that your body changes from year-to-year with some potentially unwelcome differences as we age. Your mouth is no different is also susceptible to changes in weight and the reduction of bone with age, two reasons why your once well-fitted denture no longer stays in place or causes painful denture sores.

A partial denture is a tooth replacement option for people who have lost some of their teeth but still have natural teeth remaining that need to stay in place. Our skilled dentist can anchor the partial dentures to your remaining natural teeth to create a complete, natural-looking smile.

Root Canal Therapy

woman getting dental service in Monroe TownshipHave you ever needed a dental procedure and been handed a slip of paper to visit a specialist you never met? Most patients like to stay where they are comfortable for procedures like root canals.

Gentle Root Canal Treatment

Typically, we can successfully treat root canal problems in the comfort of our Monroe Township dental office. Our patients appreciate the convenience of being able to stay with Dr. H.K. Virdee for their endodontic care.

Root Canal Process

Dr. Virdee is skilled in successful root canal therapies and performs hundreds of them each year to relieve the symptoms of infection from her patients’ teeth. She utilizes an instrument called an engine-driven handpiece that allows Dr. Virdee to perform a more efficient cleaning. She will place additional medication inside your tooth to prevent a reoccurrence of your condition.

Call Our Monroe Township Dental Clinic

Many people fear root canals because they associate them with pain, but Dr. Virdee is extremely gentle and will make sure you are completely comfortable for your entire procedure. Root canals actually eliminate the pain you experience from the infection inside your tooth, and after a root canal procedure, you should be feeling back to normal within a few days.

In order to give you an accurate answer about your oral health, we need to perform a comprehensive oral evaluation. We welcome new patients and look forward to treating you like family.

Signs You Might Need a Root Canalgirl in dentist chair holding jaw from pain

There are a few telltale signs that can indicate the need for root canal therapy. If you experience the following symptoms, we advise you to contact us right away. This will give us a chance to help get you back on track to good oral health.

  • Swelling in the face, jaw, or neck
  • Tooth pain, especially with pressure
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Discoloration
  • Gum lesions
  • Pus or discharge from the gums

We know that many patients would love to avoid a root canal at all costs. We want you to know, however, that we perform comfortable root canals in our Monroe Township, NJ dental office, which leaves our patients feeling confident about their oral health and the care they receive here.

Emergency Dental Care in Monroe Township

Oftentimes, the first sign that something is wrong includes pain. If you ever experience tooth pain, it’s time to give us a call. Tooth pain will not typically go away on its own and may gradually worsen.

We treat dental emergencies quickly – sometimes even on the same day.

One of the things that most people don’t know about dentistry is that conditions are often silent until they develop into a painful and advanced condition that can lead to a dental emergency. 

Importance of Preventive Dental Care

Putting off dentistry seems tempting because it takes time and money to keep your teeth healthy; unfortunately, it usually leads to greater expense and more time in the chair. Prevention and routine appointments can often prevent oral conditions that put teeth at risk.

Root Canals in Monroe Township

When we recommend root canals in our Monroe Township dental office, it is because we are at the final stage of trying to save a painful, infected tooth. Putting it off can result in severe pain and tooth loss. Since root canals treat an active infection, avoiding proper professional treatment can also cause your overall health to suffer.

Many people put off root canals because they are nervous about the pain. Root canals actually relieve pain and help you save your tooth, which is the most conservative approach to dentistry.

Rather than putting off root canals, contact our Monroe Township dental office, and our experienced and gentle dentists will explain the entire process, taking the fear out of root canal therapy.

woman smiling in dental chairMany people think of root canals and automatically think pain. The truth is, that the symptoms caused by the infection in your tooth cause far more pain than the treatment itself. 

Comfortable Dentistry in Monroe 

When you come to our dental office, your comfort is our top priority! We will always make sure you are comfortable during all of your treatment, including root canal therapy!

Having a root canal will feel no more painful than a filling. Once we eliminate the infection from your tooth, your body’s immune system will take over and continue with the healing process. As your tooth heals, you may feel some sensitivity and tenderness, but it will gradually subside over the coming days until your teeth feel normal again.

After you have time to heal, we will check your tooth and make sure the infection is completely eliminated before we move on to the next phase of treatment.

Dental Crown After Root Canal

Once you have root canal therapy in a tooth, it will be more brittle. That is why it is important to reinforce it with the proper restoration. In most cases, a dental crown will be necessary to protect your tooth from day-to-day wear and the forces from chewing. We will create a custom crown that covers the entire structure of your tooth above your gum line.
