While bridges and removable dentures offer quality tooth replacement, dental implants offer a host of additional benefits for a smile’s health and appearance. For our Astoria, NY, patients with minor or advanced tooth loss, dental implants can help secure long-lasting and lifelike replacement teeth. In today’s blog, we’re going to look at the benefits of replacing missing teeth with dental implants.
If you have a single missing tooth, then we may suggest a single tooth dental implant. But what if you have multiple missing teeth? Instead of relying solely on traditional bridges and removable dentures, we may actually use implant dentistry to provide a more secure and longer-lasting alternative. In today’s blog, we’re looking at how we place implant dentures in Astoria, NY.
We have a number of treatment options designed to improve smile beauty and help you enjoy better oral health.

Cosmetic care doesn’t always rely on multiple visits. In fact, we often correct smiles in Astoria, NY, in one visit with a contouring procedure. While very different, both gum and tooth contouring provide a means of repairing smiles and correcting esthetics issues quickly, helping patients enjoy a healthy and stunning smile. In today’s blog, we’re going to take a close look at each of these unique and convenient cosmetic treatment options.
Cosmetic dentistry brightens smiles, and even repairs minor damage. But can we use cosmetic care to address poor alignment? For those with crooked or crowded teeth, we have a solution that doesn’t require metal braces. Instead, we provide our Astoria, NY, patients with a series of clear and comfortable acrylic aligners.
If a tooth becomes chipped or broken, how will your smile look following repair? At one time, people had to receive metal restorations to address these concerns. Now, we can often place alternatives that are not only metal-free, but have the capabilities to blend with your smile. Let’s talk about the cosmetic repairs we offer our Astoria, NY, patients, and why you should never ignore a chipped tooth!
Do you have stained teeth? We may develop unsightly brown or yellow stains for a number of reasons, from our diet choices to our smoking habits. But what solutions do we offer for stained smiles? While store bought systems may offer less-than-dazzling results and cause tooth sensitivity, we have a professional system to brighten smiles in Astoria, NY, by several shades.

If you have trouble sleeping due to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), you may need treatment. If you’ve heard that a mouthguard can help stop sleep apnea, well, that’s almost true. We don’t just prescribe a mouthguard for our Astoria, NY, patients, but a custom-made device that fits like one. How does this unique device help stop OSA?
According to the American Dental Association, people of all ages need to undergo routine checkups and cleanings at least twice a year. Those with high risk factors for gum disease and other oral health concerns may need them every three to four months. We agree, and help our patients in Astoria, NY, enjoy healthier and more attractive smiles with preventive visits.
