Veneers are all About Creating Beautiful Smiles  

Ask yourself: Is your smile the very best it can be? If you’re suffering from discolored, chipped, misshapen or slightly misaligned teeth, dental veneers may be the answer for you.

One of the most esthetic and conservative means of creating a more pleasing and beautiful smile is the placement of dental veneers. At the office of Dr. Mark J. Heller], our highly-skilled staff will determine if you are candidate for veneers and will work with you to create a great looking smile.

Dental veneers offer a relatively quick way to transform the look of less-than-perfect teeth to create a stunning smile. With dental veneers, our office can improve the size, shape and color of the front teeth to perfect the overall appearance of your smile. Fabricated from the highest grade of dental porcelain, veneers are thin facings that are individually custom designed and bonded to the visible surfaces of the front teeth. Beyond taking just a few visits, dental veneers are appealing because they require the removal of very little tooth structure.

If you are interested in improving the look of your smile with dental veneers you’ll first meet with our dentist for a smile makeover consultation. At this visit we’ll assess the overall health of your teeth, the surrounding tissues and jawbones, as well as analyze both your smile and facial aesthetics. As skilled and experienced providers of care, we value patient input and will design your dental veneers to give you a beautiful smile that meets your cosmetic expectations.

The Importance of Routine Care

At the office of Dr. Mark J. Heller, we maintain a position at the forefront of the latest advances in care to offer patients treatment that is more precise, convenient, and comfortable than ever before. When it comes to smile care, our team of professionals is well equipped to help you and every member of your family enjoy optimal oral health.

Here are three great reasons why regular checkups to our office are essential for a healthy smile:

  1. With routine checkups, we can help prevent dental disease or treat it early in its onset. While a mirror allows you to look at the surface of your smile, underneath the outer layer of your teeth and beneath the gums, there may be a lot more going on. By performing a comprehensive exam, we’re able to detect and treat emerging dental problems such as the onset of gum disease or dental decay.  We can also take measures to help prevent these issues from happening at all.                   
  1. We’ll check signs of medical conditions, suspicious lesions, ulcerations, or oral cancer. We’re always on the lookout for any unusual signs or symptoms affecting your oral health and overall well-being. As part of a comprehensive exam (and if indicated at other visits), we perform an oral cancer screening to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. We also check for any oral manifestations of other medical conditions or problematic lesions.
  1. Dedicated to helping patients maintain optimal oral health, we emphasize the importance of preventive care. With a professional dental cleaning, we can remove the plaque and tartar between the teeth and gums that your toothbrush or floss may have missed. Not only will your smile feel better after a thorough cleaning, but by removing any accumulated plaque, tartar, and debris, your risk of cavities and gum disease is reduced. Also, as part of our comprehensive program of preventive care, we’ll show you what you can do at home to help keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Our superior reputation is based on providing experienced and compassionate care with an unparalleled level of skill to achieve the best results for all our patients.

Persistent oral pain may signal the need for a root canal

Great Neck NY dental care

For experienced professionals who can diagnose and treat the precise underlying cause of your oral pain, visit our office. When it comes to oral healthcare, we are well prepared to provide treatment for a broad range of dental issues, whether you’re in need of a restorative procedure or a root canal therapy.

Persistent oral pain is commonly the result of issues occurring deep inside a tooth, at the inner, nerve level. Because the central region of the tooth is its vital area, it’s of the utmost importance that you see a dentist when sensitivity or acute discomfort develops. Although the enamel of your teeth is the hardest substance in the human body, there are a variety of circumstances that can lead to the delicate center of a tooth becoming compromised. Dental decay, commonly known by its result—cavities—can continue burrowing into a tooth if left untreated. With deep decay, the vital tissue of the tooth can become exposed to bacteria and subsequent infection.

With a root canal, a dental infection can be treated, the discomfort of a toothache alleviated and subsequent damage to your oral health prevented. Throughout the course of your root canal procedure our dentist and staff will keep you informed and at ease, addressing any anxiety or concerns that may arise during treatment. Following the procedure, we may recommend placing a dental crown over your treated tooth, to help strengthen and protect it, and to restore its function and appearance. A tooth that has been treated with a root canal can remain healthy and functional throughout your life.
