From our Family to Yours, we hope and pray that everyone in your life is healthy and feeling well.
We are pleased to announce the Full Re-Opening of our practice!
As we begin to return to our normal lives, our practice is now open for all dental procedures, not just emergent ones. Throughout this crisis, we have remained open to care for all emergency patients and we look forward to resuming all aspects of dental care.
Lack of oral health has been directly linked to more serious health issues and cannot be overlooked. It is important to resume dental cleanings and to address any dental issues that have been put off during this crisis.
Our staff is fully prepared to continue to protect our Patients from not only Covid-19 but from all viral exposure as the Infection Control and Anti-viral protocols that we have practiced for 30 years far exceed industry standards.
To all our patients that had appointments cancelled due to this health crisis, we will be contacting you to reschedule those appointments. As always you can reach us at 718-876-9100 to schedule an appointment on your own or with any questions you may have.
As always, our office and lab continue to welcome all new patients and emergencies if your current dental office is not available
We look forward to seeing each of you again soon!
All the best,
Dr. Mormino, Lauren, Lisa, Anne Marie, Mary, Gladys, Annie & MaryEllen
Repair Chips and Cracks with Dental Bonding
Dr. Joseph T. Mormino can repair chips, cracks, and minor cosmetic imperfections with dental bonding. At his Staten Island, NY, office, Dr. Mormino will carefully apply composite resin to conceal these concerns and restore your smile. Dental bonding is a relatively inexpensive alternative to porcelain veneers that can completely rejuvenate your smile.
DR. MORMINO: Dental bonding, or also known as composite, is a procedure which can be used when you have either a cavity, wear and tear, breakage of a tooth. Okay? To restore that tooth to its original beauty and its original function, there has to be enough natural tooth structure remaining to effectively perform bonding, as opposed to a porcelain veneer or a porcelain crown. But there are many applications for bonding in the front teeth: the stained, older fillings; for decay. And also in the posterior or the back teeth, if you will, to replace some of those old silver mercury fillings that no one likes to see anymore. And the bonding technology has advanced enough at this point where even the hard, biting force teeth, like the molars, all the way in the back, even though they take a lot of biting pressure, you don’t need to have those silver mercury fillings there anymore. They can be restored with tooth colored bonding that’s very durable and looks great.
