If you’re seeking a Brooklyn dentist to help you with your denture-related needs, you just found him. But what exactly are dentures, and are they right for you? Dentures allow for people with lost or missing teeth to regain the appearance of a smooth, beautiful smile, maintaining face shape and alleviating the stress patients often put on their bite when supportive teeth are missing. The process by which this is done involve dental appliances called bridges, which help replace missing teeth with artificial teeth. A bridge can be made from gold alloys, porcelain, or a combination of all of these materials. With fixed bridges, these structures are bonded onto surrounding teeth so that the artificial teeth can be supported and locked into place. Dentures are more commonly associated with removable bridges, which can be removed from the mouth many times a day for cleaning.
If you’re curious about whether you might be a good candidate for removable prosthodontics or dentures in particular, call Dr. Abraham Esses, DDS our Brooklyn dentist today!
Brooklyn dental veneers
If you are looking for an expert dentist who can help improve the look of your smile, then you will want to pay a visit to our dentist, Abraham Esses, DDS. Our dentist has been taking care of our dental patients at our state-of-the-art office in Flatbush for over 20 years. Dr. Esses specializes in cosmetic, restorative and implant dentistry. One of his areas of specialty is Brooklyn dental veneers.
Brooklyn dental veneers are also known as porcelain laminates. They can be used to fix many different types of cosmetic dental problems. Veneers are made of porcelain, and are themselves very strong. However, they are never used to strengthen teeth. Instead, they are used to cosmetically improve smiles. Porcelain veneers can be used to correct the following problems with a patient’s smile: uneven teeth; short teeth; misshapen teeth; severely discolored teeth; chipped teeth; teeth that have superficial cracks in the enamel; and teeth that have uneven gaps between them.
Brooklyn dental veneers are actually thin porcelain shells that are made to fit over the front of a tooth. They are specially made to color-match the other teeth in the patient’s mouth. If you are having your teeth professionally whitened, they will be made to match the shade of your teeth after the whitening is completed. Since veneers are only shells, they cannot strengthen teeth or improve their function the way porcelain crowns can. However, porcelain veneers will greatly improve the look of a patient’s smile, and can make quite a dramatic improvement in the patient’s overall look. Veneers are permanently affixed to the front of your teeth, with practically no anesthesia needed. During this process, Dr. Esses may have to remove a bit of enamel from the tooth in order to ensure a good fit, and excellent dental cement adhesion. This is just one of the reasons why you will want to have an expert, such as Dr. Esses, perform the procedure for you. If you would like to learn more about dental veneers, and how they can restore the look of your smile, contact our office today. Dr. Esses will be happy to discuss how this cost-effective dental procedure can help you love your smile.
