At Jersey City Dental, Dr. Andrew S. Paek leads a staff of experienced hygienists and technicians in treating each patient that walks through the door on an individual level. The team helps alleviate any anxieties by listening to patients’ concerns, as well as taking the time to explain each procedure. In addition to exams, cleanings, and periodontal services, Dr. Andrew’s menu of cosmetic-dentistry techniques, such as veneers and whitening services, glamorize mouths without the hassle of pasting on celebrity photos.
At AVM Dental Center, Dr. Alexander Milman knows patients don't want their dental work to show. He keeps his handiwork concealed by using tooth-colored materials, which replace metal fillings and other conspicuous dental treatments. It makes sense then, that he'd specialize in Invisalign, which straightens teeth while remaining almost invisible—something it has in common with most superhero dentists. Even his CEREC crowns replicate the look and function of the natural tooth and can be put in during a single visit. But Dr. Milman wants his patients to have an easy visit, too. His office's technologies help make appointments more comfortable with digital X-rays and special cameras that give him a tongue's-eye-view of each tooth for more accurate diagnoses.
While studying at New York University’s College of Dentistry, Dr. Nhat Nguyen found more than a career. He found his future wife—and current partner at East Coast Family Dentistry—Dr. Maria Sese. Together, they tackle a full slate of dental services that range from checkups and x-rays to prevent future mouth-based maladies to implants and crowns that signal which molar is king of the teeth. Once smiles are healthy, the dental duo can spruce them up with cosmetic treatments including Zoom! Whitening treatments, which brighten chompers up to 12 shades in a single session.
While a lone tooth is never particularly attractive, a smile is more than the sum of its parts, as Dr. Ari Dubov and Dr. Lana Bunis well know. The two dentists specialize in cosmetic dentistry at their practice, Montgomery Greene Dental—where they bring smiles together by looking at the entire oral picture. Dr. Dubov is certified in Invisalign, a system of transparent aligners that straighten teeth subtly, without marks such as braces—which were recently adopted as the international symbol for "Under Construction". Dr. Bunis, meanwhile, specializes in implants, seamlessly replacing missing teeth. Beyond cosmetic dentistry, the pair also offer general dentistry services, orthodontics, and periodontics.
The dental associates of Park Avenue Dental Group take pride not only in the gleaming smiles brandished by their patients but also in exceeding the standards set for the dental industry. Distilled water replaces regular tap water, eliminating the chance of contamination. The office's sterilization systems meticulously scrub tools and surfaces free of harmful bacteria and surpass OSHA requirements. The practice also offers three types of sedation, including oral sedation in pill form and nitrous oxide, to help patients relax no matter if they're there for a basic cleaning, root canal, or grill bedazzling.
Like any good team, Platinum Dental at 65 Broadway's foursome of doctors combine their varying specialties to cover the full range of general, cosmetic, and restorative dental needs. With special training in periodontal treatments, implants, and orthodontia, the team treats virtually every dental issue from the tiniest cavity to full mouth reconstruction. More intensive procedures such as maxillofacial surgery can open up breathing passageways, helping to correct severe snoring and the inability to breathe only chocolate.
Technical know-how is an important part of any dental office, but comfort is also paramount. To that end, the flat-screen LCD television and leather sofa in the lobby keep patients at ease. In the treatment rooms, lime-green walls and colorful chairs lift the mood and ceiling-mounted televisions play movies during procedures.
Tribeca Dental Studio unites the talents of six different doctors whose specialties range from cosmetic dentistry to gum health to the tooth's inner workings. The team's varied skills ensure patients’ needs are tended to. No matter what treatment they need—whether a routine checkup or a more intensive surgical or cosmetic procedure—clients are catered to with amenities that were designed with comfort and efficiency in mind. While patients recline in massage chairs, the staff employs technology such as WaterLase dentistry, which reduces the discomfort and sudden gold rushes often caused by standard drills.
While tending to patients’ comfort, the studio—itself made from nontoxic caulks and hypoallergenic paints—looks out for the environment. They have replaced mercury and silver amalgam fillings with nontoxic, composite resin and use digital x-rays to minimize radiation exposure. Also, paperless systems limit waste while keeping records secure, and purifiers clear the air of molds and mildew.
