TEETH WHITENING BY LASER

whiteningteeth

Professional tooth whitening in a dental office is the preferred whitening method because even though stronger agents are applied, the rest of the mouth, including the gums, is protected from these materials. The best whitening systems feature a buffer in the gel that protects the tooth enamel from damage, are extremely effective, and can transform teeth in a single office visit. 

Doctor Fundaminsky is best qualified to handle any issues that may arise from whitening treatments, such as tooth sensitivity. Today most tooth sensitivity cases are easily managed.

Tooth whitening can last for one or more years, depending on how well you take care of your teeth, and if you’re following up regularly with a home whitening product for regular maintenance.

PORCELAIN VENEERS

There are three fairly simple steps to the porcelain veneers process: the consultation, the preparation, and the placement. During the consultation, Dr. Fundaminsky will give you detailed information about porcelain veneers, address any questions or concerns you might have, and evaluate your candidacy for treatment. If you decide that porcelain veneers are right for you, you will come in for a second visit, during which Dr. Fundaminsky will carefully remove a small amount of enamel from the surfaces of the teeth to be treated. This is necessary in order to create space for the porcelain veneers. We will then make an impression of your teeth to send out to our trusted dental laboratory, where your porcelain veneers will be created according to exact specifications.

Before bonding them into place, Dr. Fundaminsky will check to ensure that they fit properly and blend in seamlessly with your surrounding natural teeth. If adjustments need to be made, they will be made at this point. Next, your teeth will be cleaned and etched to achieve a good bonding surface. The porcelain veneers will then be permanently bonded to your teeth, and you will have a beautiful new smile!

PORCELAIN CROWNS

 

Once you’ve decided to have porcelain crowns placed, you will schedule two visits to our practice. During the first visit, Dr.Fundaminsky will make a mold of your teeth for the dental laboratory. Using the latest computer-aided technology, the laboratory will custom-craft your porcelain crowns according to the precise specifications provided by Dr. Fundaminsky. Temporary crowns may be placed during your first visit to protect the affected teeth while the lab fabricates your permanent crowns.

Once your porcelain crowns have been crafted, you will return to our office for their placement. The crowns will be bonded to your teeth with a special adhesive. During the entire process,Dr. Fundaminsky uses pain-free dentistry techniques to make certain that you are comfortable and relaxed.

Damaged teeth can be the source of both physical and aesthetic problems, both of which can be addressed with the placement of porcelain crowns. The porcelain is color-matched to surrounding natural teeth to make the crowns a virtually undetectable part of your smile. The crowns also add strength and restore functionality to damaged teeth. With the proper care, porcelain crowns can last for up to 20 years.

ROOT CANAL

A root canal, also called endodontic therapy, treats teeth that have become severely damaged, allowing the nerves and soft inner pulp of the tooth to become infected. Your dentist may also recommend a root canal if a tooth has become so damaged or decayed that future infection appears inevitable. Root canals have a reputation for being painful, but modern endodontic techniques and anesthetics make the procedure no more uncomfortable than having a tooth filled. After completing the root canal, the tooth will also need a crown or filling to complete the restoration.

Dr. Fundaminsky performs Extractions and Root Canal Therapy, but first he will use all of his vast skill to try and save your own teeth, and considers Tooth Extraction and Root Canals as something to be performed after all wiser and more effective methods have been used to allow you to keep your own teeth.

TOOTH DECAY

Cavities are permanently damaged areas in the hard surface of your teeth that develop into tiny openings or holes. Cavities, also called tooth decay or caries, are caused by a combination of factors, including bacteria in your mouth, frequent snacking, sipping sugary drinks, and not cleaning your teeth well.

Dr. Fundaminsky removing decay very conservatively to save tooth structure that makes longevity of his work almost permanent.
