Today I’m going to be explaining one cosmetic option offered at our Bronx cosmetic dental office—dental veneers.
Periodontal pockets develop when infected gum tissue actually pulls away from a patient’s teeth and jawbone. The resulting flap in gum tissue is called a periodontal pocket, and this problem can be quite difficult for patients to deal with.
Our Bronx dentists believe that the more you know about gum disease, the better able you’ll be to spot gum disease symptoms and seek effective treatment.

When most of us think about dental staining, we think about the substances we consume every day, and the accidents or dental traumas that can radically change the color of our teeth. Few of us consider the conditions that can darken the appearance of teeth before the adult teeth even emerge. The truth is that certain conditions can darken permanent teeth as they develop. Patients with these conditions will suffer from dark, unsightly stains, as soon as they lose their baby teeth and their adult teeth emerge.
A growing concern among many adult patients is weakening dental enamel from acid erosion. This condition can seriously harm a patient’s dental health, and unfortunately, many patients don’t even know that they’re suffering from acid erosion.
The discovery of a process call osseointegration has made it possible for our Bronx dental implant dentists to produce a more realistic looking and feeling tooth replacement option. Osseointegration is the process by which metals, specifically titanium, bond with natural bone. In dentistry, we now use titanium posts for dental implants—replacement teeth that are surgically implanted into the bone.
When people think of anti-aging procedures, they often consider Botox, face-lifts, and laser peels. What many patients fail to realize is that a whiter, brighter smile can take years off your smile without the pain of plastic surgery. As patients age their teeth naturally begin to lose shine and vibrancy. Dull teeth can make you look older and tired—and too many patients begin to hide their smiles out of embarrassment.
Our Bronx dental office is here to educate patients about erosion and dental abrasion, so they can recognize the sings and symptoms and seek prompt treatment. Read on for more information…
