Teeth Whitening

Even the most cautious and thorough patients who maintain a rigorous oral hygiene regimen, eventually notice staining and yellowing has occurred. The discoloration can be due to the inevitable aging process, favorite, highly staining, beverages like coffee and red wine, smoking, and a wide variety of other factors. Unfortunately, stained teeth can destroy the appearance of an otherwise beautiful, healthy smile. As a solution we offer in office teeth whitening treatment at our Manhattan, New York practice. Our teeth whitening treatment can significantly improve the appearance of teeth in just one appointment, this provides our patients with a less invasive way of achieving a full smile makeover. You can brighten up your smile with one easy visit!

Zoom! Teeth Whitening

The first thing people notice about someone is a radiant smile! It is important that you select a whitening treatment that fits your lifestyle. In most cases Zoom! is one of the most effective teeth whitening treatments available on the market today! Extraordinary results take place in one single cosmetic dentistry appointment at our New York City office; the entire procedure is completed in less than an hour. Zoom! involves a strong bleaching agent (hydrogen peroxide) applied to your teeth.

The power behind the performance of a Zoom! treatment has been proven to whiten teeth up to nine full shades! Through advanced technology, shining a special light on the Zoom! Teeth Whitening gel, we can make your dreams of a brighter, whiter smile come true and aesthetically enhance your teeth to the desired outcome you wish.

Porcelain Veneers

One of the most versatile and personalized cosmetic dentistry procedures available, porcelain veneers, produce whiter, straighter teeth, and even fill in gaps between teeth and reach hidden space for a full smile. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color.

A thin shell of ceramic material, a porcelain veneer is bonded to the outside of each tooth. In most cases, your existing teeth remain largely intact when we apply porcelain veneers. With some brands of porcelain veneers, we may be able to maintain the entire tooth, such as with LUMINEERS®, for our New York residents looking for a strong, safe, durable, and, best of all, quick way to have beautiful, white teeth should investigate this option.

Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech materials.
With veneers—as opposed to crowns—your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer.

Instant Orthodontics

“Instant orthodontics” refers to a special technique performed by our cosmetic dentists that can quickly, easily, and painlessly straighten your teeth. Innovative dental technology allows uneven teeth to be reshaped and laminated with high-tech ceramics. We call this method instant orthodontics, using veneers or laminates instead of braces to make teeth appear straight. It can close off large gaps and fix some overcrowding in as fast as 1-2 days. Typically a pain-free procedure requiring only the use of local anesthetics, instant orthodonics bears the name for a reason.

You are a candidate for this if you would like your teeth to look straighter and cannot commit to the time allotted for conventional braces and long-term aligners. Although this approach is effective, the level of efficiency will depend on the severity of the crowded and crooked the teeth in the mouth. Some cases require a combination of limited orthodontics and ceramic enhancement to be the best choice. Many people would like to finally correct their smile with straighter teeth, but are not interested in spending years in uncomfortable, hard to manage braces, or even the seemingly-invisible Invisalign® aligners. Porcelain veneers are an excellent alternative for our cosmetic dentistry patients in the New York City area who are able to successfully have straight teeth without enduring braces or aligners, by utilizing instant orthodontics.

Our dentists will apply porcelain veneers at their midtown New York office, and after just a few visits, you will have teeth that appear straighter and a smile that will “Wow”!

Invisible Orthodontics

To most people, the word “orthodontia” means one thing: a mouth full of metal! Now, there is a way to straighten your teeth (FYI: orthodontia actually means “straight teeth”) without having the infamous “tin grin” of braces – enter invisible aligners. Madison Dentistry is very pleased and proud to offer invisible orthodontics to our patients. When you decide to have your teeth straightened with clear aligners at our Madison Avenue office, we will begin the process by taking a scan or impressions of your teeth. The scan or impressions will be used by Invisalign® or ClearCorrect® to create a series of clear, plastic aligners that will slowly, surely move your teeth into a more ideal alignment. You will update to a new set of aligners about every two weeks to accommodate the shifting of your teeth into position. You are suggested to wear your clear aligners all the time/as often as possible, except while eating or drinking. Invisible orthodontic treatments last roughly the same amount of time required for traditional braces.

Some patients even choose to undergo teeth whitening during their invisible orthodontic treatment to achieve both straighter and whiter teeth and optimize their overall health and oral beauty.

If you are interested in teeth whitening and invisible orthodontic treatment with various aligner options (including Invisalign® and ClearCorrect®), please contact Madison Dentistry today!

Laser Dentistry

At our cosmetic dentistry practice in Manhattan, New York, we are excited about the potential of laser dentistry. Patients in the New York City area seeking quick, powerful, and accurate, treatment are finding that laser dentistry meets and exceeds their expectations. Using the most advanced laser technology, laser dentistry is able to treat cavities, tooth decay, discolored teeth, and periodontal problems with speed and precision. You will feel very little discomfort if any, and your recovery time will be dramatically faster than is possible with traditional dental procedures. Quick, convenient, and effective, laser dentistry allows you to achieve a healthier, more radiant smile with only a minimal investment of your time.

Our doctors use the laser for soft tissue treatment in order to deliver very precise results in a short, painless procedure. “Gummy” smiles can be corrected in one appointment. For people who are nervous about needles and drills, laser dentistry at our dental office near Rockefeller Center is an ideal alternative to conventional treatment options. Many laser dentistry procedures do not require anesthesia, eliminating needles all together and making them safer for more people.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent solution to the replacement of missing teeth. Many patients consider them superior to other treatments for missing teeth, as implants offer more structural support and last longer than dentures or bridges.

A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an overall orthodontic anchor.

The  fixture is first placed, then a dental prosthetic is added. In each case an abutment is attached to the implant fixture. Where the prosthetic is fixed, the crown, bridge or denture is fixed to the abutment with either lag-screws or cement. Where the prosthetic is removable, a corresponding adapter is placed in the prosthetic so that the two pieces can be secured together.

Dental implants are attached to the patient’s bone, providing them with greater stability and a more natural looking appearance. The dental implants treatment is typically performed in three stages…

  1. The titanium implant is inserted into the jaw bone.
  2. The patient goes into a healing period, which allows time for the bone to grow around the implant.
  3. The replacement tooth is attached to the implant.

At our office, we use natural-looking restorations so no one has to know you underwent dental work.

Cosmetic Bonding

A simple way to improve the appearance of your smile, cosmetic bonding uses a natural-looking material to fill in gaps between teeth and to repair chips,breaks, and cracks. Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite. Unlike veneers, which are manufactured in a laboratory and require a customized mold to achieve a proper fit, bonding can be done in a single visit. The procedure is called bonding because the material bonds to the tooth.

Bonding does not typically require the removal of any tooth structure, making it an acceptable alternative to crowns or porcelain veneers. The composite material used for tooth bonding at our cosmetic dentistry practices in New York City comes in many different shades so it can be matched precisely to the color of your teeth. The result is a natural-looking means of restoring your smile that can be completed in a single appointment. To learn more about cosmetic bonding, please contact us today!

Tooth-Colored Crowns

Damaged and decayed teeth can be effectively restored with tooth-colored crowns. A crown is a permanent covering that fits over your original tooth. This restores health and strength. We use crowns matched to your natural tooth color, which improve your smile’s appearance as well as your overall dental health. Crowns can be used to whiten, reshape, and realign teeth as well as to repair and correct any damage. We can make custom crowns for you in just one appointment for a very quick, personalize treatment plan and experience. To learn more about crowns, please contact our cosmetic dentistry practice today!

Dental Bridges

Missing teeth can create a host of aesthetic and functional problems, but bridges can be used to restore health and beauty to your smile. A bridge consists of a replacement tooth and two crowns that can be fitted over the adjacent teeth. Bridges can prevent teeth from shifting and improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile. Our dentists use tooth-colored bridges for the most natural-looking results.

Mercury-Free Restorations

Madison Dentistry made a choice to stop using “mercury-containing” fillings. Although these “silver” fillings were easy to use and relatively inexpensive, they had a nasty habit of breaking many of the teeth in which they were being placed. Mercury is the silver liquid that we see in thermometers. As it heats up, it expands. As it cools down, it contracts. This expanding and contracting also occurs in the fillings in your teeth as you eat hot and cold foods causing this reaction to increase frequently.

Eventually, all of this expanding and contracting causes cracks to develop in your teeth. When “silver fillings” break a tooth, the tooth usually requires a crown or all-ceramic onlay to repair. Most of the crowns or onlay restorations that we do at our cosmetic dentistry practice today are to repair teeth with old silver fillings.

At our cosmetic dentistry office in Manhattan, we recognized the problems with these mercury-containing fillings, and try to help you avoid the problems of unexpected tooth breakage. At your cleaning and exam appointment, we use digital x-rays and an intraoral camera to help locate and evaluate the cracks in your teeth. If they look dangerous, we will recommend a crown or resin composite restoration to protect your tooth. To learn more about mercury-free restorations, please contact us today!
