Minimally Invasive Dentistry July 6, 2006, 9:27 a.m.
Returning from San Diego and the 6th Annual Conference of the World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry seems timely for a discussion about our belief that cavities and oral diseases are not inevitable. As members of the World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry, our team is dedicated to using the least invasive procedures to create the maximum oral health benefits for you. Of course that means using today’s superior technology to remove less healthy tooth enamel than in generations past, but it means much, much more.
Our team is committed to providing leading-edge dental care through ensuring:
Adequate consultation time so that we can discuss your hopes and desires for your smile and oral health;
Education and home care guidance to prevent gum disease and cavities;
Regular recall examinations for the prevention of caries (decay), periodontal diseases, and other oral diseases;
State-of-the-art diagnostic tools, restorative materials, and precision equipment for earlier diagnosis and effective treatment plans which save more natural teeth and tooth enamel when intervention – even cosmetic intervention – is required or desired.
Your quality of life can be improved through optimal oral health. Research has linked gum disease to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, cancers, and diabetes. With Minimally Invasive(MI) dentistry, many oral health concerns can someday be a thing of the past.
In other words, our commitment to MI dentistry is a commitment to your healthy future!
Inlays and Onlays July 6, 2006, 9:24 a.m.
When a filling just won’t do a job, maybe an inlay or onlay is for you!
If a cavity or old failing restoration occupies a third of the tooth, or if you grind or clench: the treatment of choice is an indirect restoration. This is an extremely durable, custom fitted structure that allows for as much of your natural tooth as possible to be preserved. These restorations are fabricated by dental laboratory based on impressions the dentist takes of your teeth. According to numerous studies indirect restorations can increase the strength of the remaining tooth by up to 75 percent.Inlays: Small inserts completely surrounded by the tooth structure. They are more durable than fillings and leave more of the original tooth structure intact compare to conventional crowns.
Onlays: More extensive than inlays, these replace both tooth ‘s biting surface and at least one missing cusp or corner. Their function is not just protect the tooth, but to build up it’s shape. Sometimes onlays are referred as partial crowns and they are the last stop before the full crown.The big news about inlays and onlays is that the latest ones are made of tooth-colored ceramic resins and once in place, they are virtually undetectable. The procedure requires two visits to the dental office and the steps are similar to the crown and bridge preparations.
Whitening July 6, 2006, 9:20 a.m.
A beautiful smile can brighten your life everyday. Did you know most celebrities whiten their teeth? They do it to feel good, look amazing, and make great first impressions. You can do it too. Don’t hide behind less than perfect teeth. Here at New York Center for Esthetic & Laser Dentistry we offer three options to fit your lifestyle:
All three options offer equal results.
Tooth whitening provided by a dental professional is the safest and fastest way to a whiter brighter smile. Whitening should start with a prophylactic cleaning to see how much staining can be easily removed. Then the dentist measures the base color of the teeth as a reference point. Almost anyone can benefit from the whitening procedure. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as the others (depending on present base color, existing stains, and discolorations).
The secret of successful bleaching is the concentration of bleach and the length of contact with the teeth.
In-office bleaching offers the maximum strength concentrations of carbamide peroxide (hydrogen peroxide in combination with gel thickeners) available applied to the teeth during one or more one hour sessions. There is no faster way to brighten your teeth!
For people who prefer supervised home bleaching we offer easy-to use custom fitted trays with the supply of bleach (10 to 20 percent carbamide peroxide) that are worn for one to several hours a day or night, typically over a period of 2 to 3 weeks. The bleach is applied from the easy-to-use syringes. Refills are available, and your set of trays are usable for touch ups.
