Fillings, Crowns & Prosthodontics. New York City, NY
Teeth can develop or undergo structural deficiencies which require some form of repair. The process of fixing or repairing a tooth is known as restoration. Teeth with soft enamel, fracture of the enamel, decay, or old defective fillings need to be restored in order to preserve the tooth. Our goal is to provide teh best of what Modern dentistry offers in types of restorations and restorative materials. Fillings, veneers, inlays, onlays, and crowns, are all restorations that can be made using materials such as gold, porcelain, composite, or amalgam.
Composite and Porcelain Tooth Veneers
Overview of Tooth Veneers
Often an alternative to crowns, veneers are very thin pieces of specially-shaped porcelain or plastic that are glued over the front of your teeth with little or no anesthesia needed. They are the cure for teeth that are severely discolored, chipped, have small holes or pits, misshapen or crooked, or for the correction of unwanted or uneven spaces. Unlike crowns, veneers won't require us to remove much of the tooth itself in most cases. Veneers are created from an impression taken in our office. Your custom veneer is then glued directly onto your tooth. Strong and very durable, veneers last from ten to fifteen years, and in no time you will have a beautiful and natural looking smile.
NY Dental Implants
What are dental implants?
Dental Implants are an anchor for a naturally-appearing false tooth or a set of false teeth. Implants are not only used to replace one tooth, but rather people missing most, if not all, of their teeth benefit greatly as well. Implants are increasingly being used to replace certain types of bridges and removable partial dentures.
We use Top of the line Dental CT Scan technology to ensure that you will get a naturally looking smile that will last you a Lifetime.
Dental Bonding in New York, NY
What is tooth bonding?
Bonding is the solution for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color of your teeth or the reshaping of teeth. Bonding will lighten any stains you may have, close up minor gaps and can be used to correct crooked teeth. Basically, bonding will cover any natural flaws applying a thin coating of a plastic material on the front surface of your teeth. After this, we will apply a bonding material and sculpt, color and shape it to provide a pleasing result. A high-intensity light then hardens the plastic, and the surface is finely polished.
What is a dental bridge?
If you have a space from a missing tooth, a bridge will be custom made to fill in the space with a false tooth. The false tooth is attached by the bridge to the two other teeth around the space - bridging them together.
Tooth Contouring and Reshaping
What is tooth contouring and reshaping?
Tooth reshaping, or contouring, is one of the few instant dental treatments now available in cosmetic dentistry. Dental reshaping and contouring is a procedure to correct crooked teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth or even overlapping teeth in just one session.
What are composite resin fillings?
Composite resin dental fillings were created as an alternative to traditional metal dental fillings. Tooth fillings colored to look like a natural tooth are known as Composite Resin Dental Fillings,are made of a plastic dental resin. Composite Resin Dental Fillings are strong, durable, and make for a very natural looking smile. Many dental insurance plans cover their use.
Dental Crowns in New York, NY
What are Tooth Crowns?
As we age, many of us find ourselves with teeth that are no longer structurally sound. Root canals, lost fillings, decay below a filling, chipping and cracking of the enamel are all things that can lead to large scale defects in a tooth's surface. When the entire surface of the tooth is a problem, but the root system is intact, a crown might be just what the dentist orders.
What are Root Canals?
There are tiny canals within your tooth that may become infected. This leads to the pulp inside your tooth also becoming infected as well. Either your dentist or an endodontist has to remove any infection performs the root canal procedure. The canals are cleaned and then filled and the tooth receives either a filling or a crown.
