When plaque and tartar accumulate on the surfaces of your teeth, this could be a recipe for poor oral health and eventually, major discomfort.

ClearCorrect employs a series of comfortable aligners that are nearly invisible when worn! In today’s blog, your Astoria, NY, dentist talks about the ClearCorrect system.
When you have a gummy smile, or problems with the symmetry of your gum line, this could lead to issues with the beauty of your smile.
