The skilled team of Dr. Clifford Degel and Dr. Carmen Every-Degel combine dental dexterity with the latest technology to transform mangled mouths into beautiful smiles. During your introductory exam and cleaning, an intraoral camera captures images of your teeth and gums and instantly sends them to a screen mounted above the treatment chairs, giving you a foods-eye view of any problem areas. Technicians then take digital X-rays of your chomper collection, exposing subjects to less radiation than traditional X-rays and decreasing the risk of contracting spider-sense.

Steinway Family Dental Center offers a balance of traditional and future-forward dental treatments. While the ambient whir of metal dental drills is sometimes heard, the dental professionals also rely on lasers to conduct general and cosmetic services. They can prod soft tissue with traditional tools in search of cavities, or they can expose their hideaways with laser light. A stronger version of laser light can replace metal drills and anesthesia in order to fill them. They can also leave their metal blades in the drawer during gum contouring too, reshaping gum lines with less bleeding and trauma.
The center furthers this passion for cutting-edge care in a range of cosmetic services. Smile-beautifying technologies such as the metal-free braces known as Invisalign and Lumineers' ultra-thin veneers cast off much of the pain and unwieldy equipment necessary of older procedures, creating a straight, gleaming grin more conveniently than ever before. For more deep-seated issues, the dental pros are adept at mending gum problems, oral diseases, and other maladies with in-depth training in numerous specialty procedures.
One thousand dental implants. No, he didn't work on the world's largest mouth, but Dr. Frantz Backer has worked on a lot of regular-size ones since 1999, instilling his patients with confidence and a sense of ease during all treatments. He keeps those mouths healthy with dental services that treat everyone from children to adults. His extra-gentle root canals, Invisalign plastic braces, and cosmetic treatments such as whitening and bonding, underscore Dr. Backer's expertise and experience. Along with his own continued education, he keeps up with modern dental technology, performing gum surgery with the drill-less WaterLase laser, which is not a super soaker that shoots red light beams. Dr. Backer's passion for helping people doesn't stop with his ordinary clients; he also treats low-income residents and 9/11 rescue workers. He also doesn't underestimate the value of a warm atmosphere—Advanced Dentistry of New York's office treatment rooms feature blue walls, and the waiting area even has an exposed brick fireplace.
At Astoria Family Orthodontics, Doctor Robert J. Lopatkin examines clients’ mouths and corrects alignment issues with conventional braces, Invisalign treatments, and orthodontic surgeries. Boasting extensive experience in the field of dentistry and orthodontics, including attaining his DDS from SUNY and being named a member of the American Dental Association, Dr. Lopatkin has acted as a Diplomate on the American Board of Orthodontics since 1988, the year when the first retainer was sent into space. Within his practice, the doctor treats both adults and children with comprehensive services including examinations, x-rays, and active orthodontic therapies, including the application and regular adjustment of corrective apparatuses.
Dr. Ray wants to ensure all his patients have a smile they're proud of. Among his techniques are full-mouth rehabilitation procedures like root canals, extractions, and dental implants. But he also crafts custom porcelain veneers to cover chipped teeth and fits patients for Invisalign tooth straightening. If tooth discoloration is an issue, his team can bring back their gleam with an in-office Iveri whitening treatment that scrubs away stains and any barnacles you've picked up since your last check-up, leaving teeth 2?8 shades whiter in 20 minutes. And unlike other whitening methods, it can be safely applied on crowns or veneers, and results in little to no sensitivity.
