Restoring A Natural Smile

there are many options to restore your natural smile.Even after pain has been relieved and function has been restored, a smile damaged by injury or disease can cause self-consciousness and a drop in self-esteem. How our teeth look is almost as important as how they feel. For those who have lost one or more teeth, Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale offers treatments to make your smile once again look natural, healthy, and whole.

When you are missing even one tooth, your entire smile is compromised. Not only does the gap draw the eye, but it can lead to the loss of other teeth due to their tendency to shift into the gap as well as the bone’s natural deterioration after tooth loss. The best way to protect your teeth, as well as to restore the appearance of your smile, is to fill the gap. Bridges are one option for replacing missing teeth. Also called partial dentures, bridges replace a tooth or group of adjacent teeth after they have been lost for any reason. Bridges rely on the healthy teeth on either side of the gap to anchor them. They can be affixed temporarily or permanently, depending on your needs. It is also possible to secure a bridge to one or more dental implants.

Dental Implants
As dental technology advances, our ability to replicate and restore the natural structure of your teeth continues to grow. Dental implants are the result of many years of progress in dentistry. They allow us to replace individual teeth with sturdy, permanent prosthetics, or to provide a more solid foundation for full and partial dentures. The post of the implant is integrated into your jaw in a similar way to your natural tooth roots, and can help preserve the bone as well as filling out your smile.

Full Mouth Restoration
No matter how badly damaged your smile is, Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale can help you improve your dental health and beautify your grin. Even if you have suffered extensive injury or decay, we will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan and bring your whole smile back to its natural radiance.

Whether you have a new gap in your teeth, or have lived for years with empty gums, Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale is ready to help you replace your missing teeth. Contact us by phone or online today to schedule your consultation, and let us restore your smile to its natural beauty!

What Is Dental Bonding?

What is Dental Bonding?Most of the procedures available to modern cosmetic dentistry are designed to address only a small range of specific problems. But one of the exceptions is dental bonding. Dental bonding is a possible solution to almost any cosmetic problem, from minor chips and stains to major tooth damage from decay or trauma. At Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale, we offer dental bonding as a quick and inexpensive fix for a wide range of dental issues.

Composite resins

Dental bonding relies upon composite resins, the same material used to produce tooth-colored fillings for cavities. Composite resins have much the same luster as a natural tooth and can be mixed to match the color of the teeth around them. They are then sculpted onto your teeth to produce the desired effect, whether that is covering a stain, repairing damage, or changing the shape or size of your natural teeth.

Dental bonding is:

  • Fast. Dental bonding can take as little as half an hour per tooth, making it the quickest solution to most cosmetic problems.
  • Inexpensive. Compared to porcelain veneers, which are most similar to dental bonding in terms of the problems they can address, dental bonding is much cheaper, making it an option for anyone on a budget.
  • Versatile. This technique can be used to prepare cracks, chips, and broken teeth, to conceal stains and discoloration, to minimize gaps between teeth, to lengthen short teeth, to reshape crooked or oddly-formed teeth, and in short, to make your teeth look their best.
  • Aesthetic. With the range of colors available and the natural-looking texture, teeth repaired with dental bonding are virtually indistinguishable from your healthy, natural teeth.
  • An alternative to veneers. Occasionally, if a tooth is badly damaged, there may not be eno9ugh of the original tooth structure left to support a crown or veneer. In some of these cases, dental bonding is still an option. We can let you know which treatments are available in your case after an exam.

The only major limitation of dental bonding is its temporary nature. Repairs made using this technique are likely to last approximately five years, whereas other repair techniques can last ten or more. However, this may still be the best option for your individual case; we can discuss your choices with you during a consultation.

Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures


What to expect with full mouth reconstructionIf you have sustained serious damage to your teeth or jaw, or if you suffer from several major dental issues, you may be a candidate for full mouth reconstruction, also called full mouth restoration or full mouth rehabilitation. Full mouth reconstruction is not a single procedure, but rather a treatment plan for addressing your particular combination of dental health problems. The staff of Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale includes specialists covering almost all areas of dentistry, which means that we can offer you in-house treatment for almost any issue. If you require a service we don’t offer, we will refer you to another trusted specialist who can give you the care you need.

What to expect

Because every full mouth reconstruction is tailored to the particular needs of the patient, the course of treatment must begin with an exam to determine the issues and establish a plan, determining what procedures are necessary and which take priority. When you come in for your consultation, you’ll be given an exam to assess the state of your teeth, as well as their supporting structures, the gums and bone. Depending on our exact findings, the treatment we recommend may include any combination of periodontal, orthodontal, restorative, and cosmetic treatments, oral surgery, implants, and TMJ and bruxism treatments. Anything from scaling and root planing to crowns and veneers can be part of the process of healing your bite.

The benefits of full mouth reconstruction

If you have been living with severe decay or have received a debilitating dental injury, dental reconstruction can bring your mouth back to full health and function. Damaged and missing teeth will be repaired or replaced, diseased gum tissue will be allowed to heal, and deteriorated bone will be encouraged to grow back. Full mouth reconstructions provide relief from the pain of damaged teeth, new confidence with your new smile, and the ability to eat without pain and difficulty. If poor dental health has impacted your life, schedule your consultation today so that we can help you heal.

Happy Holidays from Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale

Happy Thanksgiving from Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale!

As you kick off the holiday season, we want to remind you to be prepared for all the extra excitement that Thanksgiving brings. Make sure you have your turkeys picked out, your bags packed or your house ready for guests, all your invitations delivered, and everything in place, not just for the upcoming feast–but for your dental care afterward.

As you enjoy your Thanksgiving meal, the bacteria in your mouth will also be feasting on all the extra sugar that those sweet potatoes, pies, and cranberry sauce contain. A large meal can accelerate the development of plaque in your mouth, so be sure to brush and floss with especial care after your Thanksgiving meal. Also watch out for any staining caused by wine or after-dinner coffee, both of which can leave dark spots on your teeth. If you’re participating in a game of Thanksgiving football, take care not to protect your teeth. Dental injuries are common during contact sports.

And if anything should go wrong, remember that Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale is here to help with all your dentistry needs. We’ll resume business after the holiday; call us during our scheduled hours of operation to get an appointment, or schedule your exam online.

Above all, enjoy your holiday!


Happy Thanksgiving,

Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale
