Woodside NY dental office
If your smile has a cosmetic problem that you want to have fixed, you should visit us at our dental practice, Michael J Weiss & Associates. At our Woodside NY dental office, one of our expert dentists, Dr. Michael Weiss or Dr. Beth Messinger, will provide you with attractive porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are a great way to fix cosmetic dental problems at our Woodside NY dental office. Veneers are actually thin shells of porcelain that are made to permanently attach to the front of a tooth. Porcelain veneers are extremely thin but also extremely strong. They are made to perfectly color-match the adjacent teeth and will last for many years. No one will ever know that you have porcelain veneers in your mouth since they will be perfectly color-matched by our dentist. Porcelain veneers are also considered to be a cost-effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. Since porcelain veneers do not strengthen your tooth, they can only be used to fix cosmetic problems that do not affect the structure of your tooth. If our dentist sees that your tooth also needs to be strengthened, or have its function improved, he or she will most likely recommend that you get a dental crown instead. However, porcelain veneers can be used to fix many different types of purely cosmetic dental problems. A patient may get only one porcelain veneer to fix a specific tooth problem, or they may get many porcelain veneers to create the smile they have long been dreaming of. Porcelain veneers are excellent for fixing the appearance of: teeth that are too short; teeth that are slightly misaligned; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that are discolored and cannot be corrected using traditional dental whitening methods; and many other cosmetically-damaged teeth.

If you are suffering with tooth loss, you may want to get dental implants. At our dental practice, Michael J Weiss & Associates, our two top-notch dentists, Dr. Michael Weiss and Dr. Beth Messinger, are able to provide you with Queens implants.
Dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement method for our patients because they look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. Once you get dental implants, and take care of them with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic dental cleanings at our office, there is no reason why they will not last you for a lifetime. If you want to get Queens implants to replace your missing teeth, we hope you will visit us so that our dentist can assess whether or not you are a good candidate for this procedure. It is important that your jawbone is thick enough and healthy enough to withstand the dental implant procedure. Once it is found that you are a good candidate for treatment, our dentist will surgically insert one titanium dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Once this occurs, there will be a waiting time of several months during which the jawbone will fully heal and the dental implant root will completely fuse to the jawbone. Once our dentist sees that all healing has occurred, he or she will create a porcelain crown which will perfectly color-match your adjacent teeth. The porcelain crown will then be permanently attached to the dental implant root and your dental implant will be complete. You can now eat, speak, and smile once again with total confidence, and in total comfort. In fact, your new dental implants will be so comfortable you will soon even forget that you have them in your mouth.

Queens teeth extractions
Do you have a tooth that becomes painful when you eat something hot or cold? Are the gums that surround the tooth red and inflamed? If so, you may have an infected tooth that needs to be treated by root canal therapy. At our dental practice, Michael J Weiss & Associates, our dentists are able to perform expert root canals that have the goal of saving the life of the tooth. At our practice we also perform Queens teeth extractions for teeth that simply cannot be saved.
At our dental practice our two expert dentists are Dr. Michael Weiss and Dr. Beth B. Messenger. It is the goal of our dental practice to always try our hardest to save every tooth. We believe it is never better to extract a tooth if the patient is healthy enough to withstand the tooth infection, and if there is a chance that the tooth can be saved. However, sometimes a root canal procedure is not able to save the tooth. If this is the case we can extract the tooth and replace it with a dental implant. Sometimes if patients have certain diseases that cause their immune system to be suppressed in may not be wise to keep the infected tooth in the mouth. There are many reasons why teeth may need to be extracted including wisdom teeth that are becoming painful, or teeth that need to be extracted for orthodontic treatment. At our dental practice we are able to perform simple and surgical Queens teeth extractions. We use local anesthesia and nitrous oxide during these procedures. We also have the option of offering dental implants for patients who have missing teeth. Dental implants are a very popular solution for missing teeth because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth.
However, in most infected teeth situations we will perform a root canal treatment if it is right for the patient. Root canal treatments are successful in over 90% of cases. During a root canal treatment our dentist gains access to the center of the tooth. The infection and damaged pulp are removed. Then the tooth is sealed. Once it is determined that the root canal procedure has been effective, a permanent crown is created and placed over the tooth which has been saved. This will serve to strengthen the tooth. It is wonderful when we can save infected teeth. This is our goal at our dental practice. Should you need a root canal treatment or Queens teeth extractions we will be able to provide you with the expert care and service that you need.
