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.

Mercury Free Dentistry and Your Health


At Staten Island Smiles, we are passionate about beautiful smiles that are healthy too. We use mercury-free dentistry at our clinic to ensure that your teeth and general health are both protected.

 

You may have heard about the negatives associated with mercury and amalgam fillings, and wondered if there are really any health risks. Through this blog, Dr. Joseph Mormino will discuss the positives of mercury-free dentistry and composite fillings, and help you understand why this type of dentistry is safer for you.



What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings are fillings that are created from porcelain -based materials. These fillings are also known as composite fillings and are used to replaced decayed parts of the teeth. They help to strengthen the teeth to restore a tooth back to its original functionality.

 

Tooth colored fillings do not contain mercury or other types of metals, and are considered to be a safer alternative to these fillings. Dr. Joseph Mormino prefers these fillings because they are able to deliver beautiful cosmetic results, while also not carrying any risks of mercury poisoning. When you smile or open your mouth, there is no appearance of silver as you would find with traditional amalgams. Instead, all you see is your radiant smileno dotting of silver to be found.

 

During a consultation with Dr. Joseph Mormino and his Staten Island Smile team, your mercury-free dentistry options will be discussed with you so that you can gain more insight into the benefits of composite fillings. Contact our Staten Island office today to learn more about this holistic form of dentistry.
