Is Cosmetic Dentistry Vain? | New York, NY

No one wants to be thought of as vain, but in this day and age, a large stress is placed on the way we look. If we don’t like something about ourselves, we try to change it. We go on diets, we dye our hair – there is a myriad of options we can do to improve our appearance. Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that mainly deals with the appearance of teeth. There are several procedures involved, like teeth whitening, teeth straightening, veneers, crowns, bleaching and reshaping. While it is true that cosmetic dentistry is “elective” in more ways than one, in just as many ways, cosmetic dentistry also offers plenty of benefits from an improved smile.

A better-looking smile helps improve your self-confidence and self-esteem significantly. This then makes it easier for you to go out, smile and socialize with other people. By helping you become more confident about yourself and feel more attractive, you have a much better chance of living a better and more positive life.

The word “cosmetic” always gives off the impression that the main, and only, beneficiary is one’s appearance and that it’s only done to improve one’s look. Though, as far as cosmetic dentistry goes, it’s not always just about esthetics, it’s also about improving your oral and overall health.

Not only that, but there are many other cases where cosmetic dentistry helps in improving the overall function your teeth. Those with misaligned teeth or bites often develop worse dental problems that may result in painful areas outside of one’s teeth and this is something that cosmetic dentistry can help with.

The Hands-on Aesthetic Continuum | New York, NY

Dental Continuum

Here is your chance to observe over-the-shoulder or participate hands-on with a patient. Our 4-day program is spread over two weekends with a focus on comprehensive aesthetic and restorative dentistry. Through our lecture series, participating doctors are able to listen to lectures on step-by-step prep techniques, smile design principles, impression and cementation techniques, patient management, treatment planning, material selection, lab communication for a more predictable result, and more.

On our first clinic day, participants may bring a patient and prep a live case or participate without a patient and observe over the shoulder up to 10 to15 cases being prepped and temporized. One month later, participants will return, and through our lecture series, listen to lectures on cementation, occlusion, advanced cases, and marketing.

The following day, they will seat their cases in clinic. Participants who chose to observe will watch over the shoulder 10 to 15 cases being inserted.

It has been shown that the graduates of our long-running aesthetic/ restorative programs have seen their practices grow and flourish even in these challenging economic times. Let us infuse your practice with a new philosophy and fine-tune your skills to become more confident and passionate about the practice of aesthetic dentistry, setting yourself apart from others in your community!

A Miracle of Collaborative Giving | New York, NY

It’s a new year…let’s start it off with a heartwarming story about how to look after each other during a time when it feels like we aren’t connecting the way we should.

On a rather ordinary day in March 2011, I met an extraordinary person. At the age of 55, Roger decided it was time to get the smile he always wanted. After cursory introductions and greetings, I sensed Roger’s uneasiness and asked about his health and medical information. He told me he’d recently seen a doctor for a medical problem and needed more tests. They suspected cancer. But Roger quickly became more upbeat and began opening up about his desire for a better smile. It was immediately clear that we’d have a great relationship and I’d enjoy providing him with a new smile…

Patient-Driven Treatment Options | New York, NY

Dental Continuum

Before we wrap up 2019, let’s take a look at how treatment options are tailored to our patient’s needs. Not only are our patients coming to us for their dental health, but they also want to have a smile they can be proud of. For many, visiting the dentist is a dreaded task. We need to change their minds. This is why it is so important to offer our patients the best care possible.

The practice of dentistry allows its practitioners the opportunity to diagnose and treat many dental problems. The methods that dentists typically select are the ones they feel most comfortable with, the ones they know will provide immediate results, and the ones they know will last the longest. Dentists look at each individual case presented to them and seek an evidence-based solution to correct the problem.

As new techniques and materials become available in dentistry, dentist now must choose between applying the treatments they are comfortable doing or to challenge themselves to learn to use new techniques and materials. By continuing education in a profession that’s constantly changing, dentists can provide endless possibilities for their patients.

I always held true to prosthetic principles of occlusion, aesthetics and personal care for my patients. After taking dental college courses my whole practice has made a complete 180-degree turn. What you have shown is that the level of what we do as dentists is usually accepted as good and okay. Now our dentistry can be spectacular. The cases that I did many years ago were long-lasting and looked just okay. Today all our cases are documented and are no less than amazing. Our referral base has tripled since we implemented your techniques and our patients are sending us more and more new patients.”
