From our Family to Yours, we hope and pray that everyone in your life is healthy and feeling well. To say we are living in uncertain times is a massive understatement and fear is normal. However, Faith is what fuels us through times of fear and uncertainty. Many of you have reached out to see if our office is open during this crisis. Please rest assured that as Healthcare Providers, treating patients is what we do. The Infection Control and Anti-viral protocols that we have practiced for 30 years to protect our Patients and Staff from viruses stronger than Covid-19 is what the rest of the world is just catching up to now. So the answer is YES we are open for treating emergency patients on an as needed basis and taking care of patient's needs. Our On-Site Laboratory also makes us uniquely qualified to handle emergencies in a timely and efficient way.

Additionally, many dental offices on Staten Island and Brooklyn have simply shut their doors completely during this crisis leaving many patients with emergencies and potential infections in need. The last thing we want is for those patients to resort to emergency rooms when hospitals and staff are already extremely overburdened. Rest assured that we and our On-Site Lab are welcoming new emergency patients in need, to treat you and your family in a timely and safe way.

We are also working on a proprietary method to perform consultations using tele-dentistry and should have a method on-line to help patients with that soon.

Humans are resilient, New Yorkers even more than most!!! We will get through this. We are here to help however we can.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Porcelain Veneers

By SEO Admin on February 21, 2011

If you have some sort of problem with you smile, you know already just how much that can affect your self-confidence, even among your friends. For this reason, many people turn to cosmetic dentistry in order to improve the appearance and health of their smiles. Our Staten Island cosmetic dentist and the team at the office have been able to achieve excellent results. One of the means of achieving such results is porcelain veneers.

Now you may have heard of porcelain veneers on television or on the internet, but you are perhaps not sure what they are. Well, porcelain veneers are these thin shells that are affixed to the front of your teeth. They are custom color matched so that they look just like your regular teeth. These sturdy ceramic shells help make your smile look cleaner and, in general, better.

There are plenty of advantages to getting Staten Island porcelain veneers. For one, porcelain veneers are able to address multiple dental problems. Minor chips and cracks, major dental stains, minor crookedness, and slight unevenness can all be fixed by using porcelain veneers. Since theyre color matched (as mentioned above), porcelain veneers are practically undetectable.

Now, that said, there are a few disadvantages to note about porcelain veneers. One main thing to note is that porcelain veneers are not susceptible to teeth whitening and other bleaching treatments. If you have multiple discolored teeth and want to have the brightest smile possible, its advisable that you undergo teeth whitening treatment before you have porcelain veneers placed. Another disadvantage is the cost, which may be prohibitive to some patients. That said, there are financing options and payment plans available to ensure that a great smile is not outside of anyones price range.

To learn more about porcelain veneers as well as other options for improved smiles and enhanced dental health, be sure to contact our office in Staten Island. We look forward to seeing you in person to discuss these matters at length.
