Implant Dentistry in New York
For individuals who wish to replace missing teeth, implant dentistry at our New York practice may be an effective long-term solution. Dental implants provide greater structural support and last longer than either bridges or dentures. Dental implants serve as the artificial root to which new teeth are bonded. They are typically constructed of titanium, a strong and safe material that effectively attaches to bone. The procedure to insert dental implants typically involves three steps: the implant insertion stage, osseointegration (the period of healing for the jawbone), and the attachment of the restoration or new tooth.
Implant dentistry, or “prosthodontics,” is performed in our Staten Island office. Dr. Mormino, one of the expert prosthodontists in New York, performs implant dentistry on patients from Staten Island, Brooklyn, greater New York, and New Jersey.
Tooth Whitening in New York
There have been several methods of tooth whitening in recent years, marking the evolution of cosmetic dentistry.
There are store-bought, over-the-counter whitening kits that are not dentist supervised and can have some unpleasant side effects. There are home tray tooth whitening treatments available at many dental offices, including our Staten Island practice. These kits do work, but they require a significant time commitment for several weeks in order to see results. Relapse is also a problem unless tooth whitening is maintained regularly.
“Power Tooth Whitening” and laser tooth whitening are also methods that are used, but they are very technique sensitive and the results are unpredictable. We’ve tried all of these tooth-whitening methods in our cosmetic dentistry office.
ZOOM! is different – it is a form of Power Tooth Whitening with some amazing benefits. The ergonomic design of the tooth whitening system maximizes the whitening effect with a minimum amount of chair time. This results in whiter, brighter teeth in about one hour, with a minimum of after-care maintenance. The results will have you smiling all the way home!
We use ZOOM! tooth whitening in our Staten Island office, where we treat patients from Staten Island, Brooklyn, and other parts of New York, as well as New Jersey.
Tooth Bonding in New York
Tooth bonding, also known as direct composite, is one of the most popular and predictable forms of cosmetic dentistry that we provide in our New York practice. Utilizing state-of-the-art materials, carefully matched for proper color and strength, we can dramatically change the appearance of chipped, worn or discolored teeth.
Porcelain Veneers in New York
Porcelain veneers are the benchmark by which all cosmetic dentistry is measured. These thin sheets of porcelain allow us to perform true Smile Makeovers for our dental patients. Utilizing porcelain veneers at our Staten Island, New York office, we can simultaneously change the shape, color, size, and alignment of teeth during the course of only two office visits.
Each case is carefully planned with both the patient and our laboratory, utilizing cosmetic imaging, carefully mounted models of the mouth, and “diagnostic wax-ups.” Our porcelain veneer patients in New York can actually select the smile they want from our” Smile Catalog,” which is a collection of differently shaped smiles that we have compiled over our many years of successful work in cosmetic dentistry.
Our use of porcelain veneers in our Staten Island, New York, cosmetic dentistry office effectively treats patients from Staten Island, Brooklyn, greater New York, and New Jersey.
Full Mouth Restoration in New York
Full Mouth Reconstruction – The Smile Lift. There are many reasons why a person might need a significant amount of dental treatment.
Sometimes it’s because of years of neglect. At other times, people who have seen dentists regularly all their lives, and have had one tooth problem treated at a time, reach a point where all of these restorations begin to deteriorate. Sometimes there is a breakdown of the gums, which then leads to problems with proper biting, or causes jaw pain. Other full mouth restoration cosmetic dentistry patients are those who are just unhappy with the cosmetic appearance of stained front teeth, old crowns, or a mouth filled with silver mercury fillings.
These patients require comprehensive treatment by an experienced prosthodontist often referred to as Full Mouth Reconstruction or “Smile Lift“.
Due to our commitment to excellence, post-graduate training, and on-site dental laboratory, our office is uniquely qualified to provide patients with full mouth reconstructive services. These services include tooth whitening, placement of porcelain veneers, replacement of amalgam fillings, and prosthodontic treatment in New York.
New York prosthodontist Dr. Mormino and his staff have a serious commitment to the detail, precision, and experience needed to perform smile lifts efficiently and predictably for New York New Jersey, and Brooklyn cosmetic dentistry patients.
My experience with Dr. Mormino has been great. I have always had the fear of visiting a dentist. Since I have been with Dr. Mormino my fears have gone. His staff are also wonderful. I am made to feel comfortable and relaxed at all times.

Our on-site dental laboratory truly differentiates us from our peers. This unique resource allows Dr. Mormino and his master dental technicians to confer personally on-site about patients’ cases.
