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.

A Custom Smile Makeover Can Correct Multiple Aesthetic Concerns
Good candidates for a smile makeover are those who are seeking to correct multiple aesthetic imperfections with their smiles. Patients who have any current oral health concerns, such as decay or gum disease, will need to have these treated first before undergoing a smile makeover. Although certain procedures like porcelain veneers can address minor tooth misalignment, those who want to correct significant alignment issues should seek an orthodontic treatment.
Personalized to Achieve Your Goals
If Dr. Mormino determines you are a good candidate for a smile makeover, he will discuss your goals for treatment and take your budget into consideration to begin planning a personalized set of procedures. At Joseph T. Mormino, DDS, we have an on-site dental lab, which allows us to provide wax-up models that can help you visualize the anticipated outcome of your smile makeover and ensure we achieve the results you seek. Additionally, if your smile makeover involves porcelain veneers or dental restorations, we can create these in-house using advanced materials.
Depending on your budget and the results you hope to achieve, your smile makeover can include:
Teeth whitening: We can perform a professional Zoom!® in-office whitening to brighten your smile by several shades, or provide a take-home kit that allows you to achieve a whiter smile at your own convenience.
Porcelain veneers: These thin shells of dental-grade porcelain are placed over the surface of reshaped teeth to conceal a wide range of cosmetic imperfections.
Dental bonding: Often used as a minimally invasive alternative to porcelain veneers, dental bonding involves applying a special adhesive to the surface of teeth in order to fill in chips and cracks and cover blemishes.
Dental Crowns: Although crowns are typically used for restorative purposes, they also provide several aesthetic benefits by completely covering a damaged or badly decayed tooth. Since we have an on-site dental lab, we can provide same-day crowns in many cases.
Dental Bridges: If you have a gap in your smile caused by tooth loss, we can use a dental bridge to replace missing teeth.
Combining several treatments into a comprehensive treatment plan allows us to achieve outstanding results while minimizing office visits, recovery times, and costs.
