Dr. Maria Gonzalez

She completed a General Practice Residency at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, where she was taught by over 60 experienced dentists from the greater New Jersey area. She gained considerable experience in all phases of dentistry, including endodontic, and surgical techniques. She is continuously seeking new forms of continuing education. She recently completed the Alleman’s Biomimetic Mastership program where she learned how to restore teeth using biomimetic dentistry. Biomimetic dentistry restores teeth that have large decay, failing fillings, and cracks to their natural strength and structure, all while preserving the healthy parts of the tooth. The aim of biomimetic dentistry is to protect the nerve of the tooth, thereby preventing symptoms like pain and sensitivity. The tooth is sealed using composite materials that connect the tooth side to side, top to bottom, and front to back. By sealing the tooth in this manner, she can restore the tooth’s natural strength and flexibility. In addition, restoring the tooth in this manner prevents cracks for propagating, blocks bacteria from entering, and preserves the vitality of the pulp indefinitely.
