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
Dental Veneers Give You a Uniformly Beautiful Smile
If you are unhappy with the look of your smile, porcelain dental veneers are the ultimate cosmetic treatment option. Dr. Joseph T. Mormino can create and place beautiful, custom porcelain veneers for you at his Staten Island, NY, office. Dr. Mormino uses an on-site laboratory to ensure that your veneers are designed to look natural and complement your unique smile.
DR. MORMINO: Porcelain veneers are pretty much, they’re like the benchmark of cosmetic dentistry. They give us the ability to change people’s smiles dramatically in as few as two visits. And they can be used for treating stained or discolored teeth, for treating misaligned teeth, teeth that are missing, teeth that patients are not happy with their smile. It is just, they, they are basically thin sheets of porcelain that can be bonded over the teeth to just dramatically change color, shape, size, to the patient’s liking. With most of our cases, in collaboration with the laboratory, is a technique we call the diagnostic wax-up. That’s where we take models of the patient’s mouth, stone models from impressions, and actually perform the entire procedure in the laboratory before it’s done on the patient, using white wax that simulates porcelain. This gives the ability a) to show the patient the final result before we’ve actually started on them, almost like a blueprint; and it also gives us the ability on a machine called an articulator, which simulates the human bite, to see if the case is going to be functionally correct for the patient. And this is all done like a set of architectural plans before the patient has actually sat down for treatment.
