Top Quality Contemporary Dentistry Services from 3V Professionals on Long Island
Superior quality dentistry procedures and services provided by our highly accomplished and experienced professionals at 3V Dental Associates include the following:
• Gentle Dental Cleanings on Long Island
During your appointment for teeth cleaning and a checkup at 3V dentistry experts at our Long Island clinic location, your teeth and gums will be thoroughly examined. X-rays may be taken if recommended, and your dentistry professional will examine your mouth carefully to ensure that no signs of oral cancer are present. Your dentistry expert will also evaluate your bite, and an expert cleaning will be performed by the dentist or a dental hygienist to remove any buildup of plaque or tartar.
Gingivitis, the first stage of major gum disease, can often be reversed by regular teeth cleanings and proactive oral health care. Thorough teeth cleaning can also prevent gingivitis from advancing into the more serious gum disease of periodontitis, which can cause permanent damage to gum tissues. Cavities can also be identified during their early stages by careful teeth cleanings. Having your teeth well cleaned at least twice annually can improve and maintain the health of your teeth.
• Cosmetic Dentistry Long Island
Our Long Island cosmetic dentistry specialists can convert a less than perfect smile into a dazzling smile of radiance. Expert cosmetic dentistry can correct countless flaws in the appearance of your teeth. The coloration, spacing, alignment and regularity of tooth formation all contribute to the overall appearance of a smile. Fortunately, tooth and gum flaws and irregularities can now be repaired or alleviated for a renewed, bright appearance. The best options that are available in cosmetic dentistry to improve the look of your teeth include smile redesign, tooth re-contouring, tooth implants, bonding and use of ceramic or porcelain crowns.
• The Best Zoom Teeth Whitening on Long Island
During a Zoom Teeth Whitening procedure, a highly effective peroxide gel will be applied to your teeth. Your dentistry expert may initiate the whitening action by directing a light on this gel, and the entire process requires about one hour. The methods of passive tray whitening and professional strength white strips are both used by 3V dentistry experts for Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatments.
With application of the whitening gel activated by light, teeth usually whiten by no less than six to ten shades of white. Trays with gel following this treatment will ensure optimal degrees and maintenance of whitening. The tray method involves use of a carbamide peroxide gel and requires three to four weeks of daily use for best results. It costs about half the price of the Zoom Teeth Whitening, although this method often brings more effective and lasting results than the tray method.
• Your Local Long Island Invisalign Team
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign® involves the use of a series of clear, customized aligners that are specifically molded to fit your teeth and mouth. These aligners will realign your teeth gradually for the best beautiful smile. No more metal brackets to affix or wires to tighten like old, cumbersome braces required. About every two weeks, you simply put a new set of aligners in your mouth for the duration of your treatment.
Believe it or not, most of your Long Island neighbors will not even be aware of your discreet, transparent aligners. Just remember to remove your aligners before you eat, floss and brush your teeth, and change aligners every two weeks. You will see results within six months to one year. Invisalign® is very popular with dentist’s patients in Port Washington and throughout Long Island.
• Expert Dental Veneer Applications on Long Island
This dentistry procedure is used to correct or improve the appearance of chipped, stained, crooked or decayed teeth. During this procedure at our clinic, the visible area of a tooth is covered with a thin porcelain or resin shell, and this process can be direct or indirect. The direct method typically uses bonding to position composite resin on the exterior of the tooth. The indirect method involves two separate treatment sessions, and during the first appointment, impressions of the tooth or teeth are taken and these teeth receive a temporary cover.
When the veneers arrive from the lab two or three weeks later, the temporary coverings are removed and the veneers are then affixed to your teeth by bonding. These veneers that are produced in the laboratory are frequently composed of porcelain or pressed most-ceramic, providing a dazzling smile. Veneers are often preferred over crowns since a much smaller amount of tooth is removed to affix veneers, and placement of veneers on teeth causes less discomfort. Veneers are also usually the preferred choice for covering teeth with large size fillings or limited structure.
• Emergency Dentistry Long Island
Our dental specialists at 3V Dental Associates offer emergency dentistry care for Long Island patients for emergency tooth extractions, tooth loss or trauma, repair of broken teeth, loose of damaged crowns and many other emergencies. Serious dentistry issues caused by accidents or injuries can be extremely painful and lead to more serious conditions and complications.
If a tooth is damaged by an unexpected and traumatic incident, it will need stabilizing, which involves re-positioning in proper alignment. This and other emergent occurrences like abscessed gums or teeth need immediate attention from expert dentistry professionals like our excellent staff of leading treatment specialists at 3V dentistry.
• Long Island Sedation Dentistry
Using our choice of the best well-known dentistry anesthetic is safe, pleasant and effective in making your dentist’s treatments and procedures more comfortable and less stressful. We use nitrous oxide and sedation dentistry for many patient procedures in our relaxed local Long Island dentistry office and clinic. Before your dentist’s work begins, you will use a mask that enables you to inhale through your nose and exhale out your mouth. You will soon experience a sedate, soothing sensation as your cheek and gums start to numb. Afterward, a local anesthetic may be applied as needed prior to your treatment.
Following your dentistry procedure, you will breathe pure oxygen to lessen the effects of the nitrous oxide, returning you to your normal state. Our dentistry professionals at 3V dentistry on Long Island are known for providing the best comprehensive, innovative dentistry with gentle care using the latest top-tier equipment and methods. With the many advancements in sedation dentistry today, you can schedule dentist’s procedures without anxieties about pain or discomfort. You can relax during your treatment and return to your normal state afterward without lingering after-effects.
• Gentle Root Canal Procedures
Long Island patients need root canal treatment (root canal therapy or endodontic therapy) if a cavity is neglected until it affects the pulp. Root canal therapy may also be necessary due to trauma caused to a tooth or deep restorations. If the nerve is damaged by either of these occurrences, root canal is needed to prevent infection of the pulp, which can spread through the root tip and damage bone tissue, causing an abscess.
A root canal can repair one or more teeth that are seriously infected or decayed while preventing other severe health conditions from developing, such as immune system weakening. By seeing your dentistry expert for a checkup every six months, any health issues affecting your teeth and gums can be detected and treated early to ensure that you retain a healthy mouth and brilliant smile.
• The Best TMJ Treatments on Long Island
Numerous TMJ symptoms may occur that cause discomfort or acute pain. These symptoms include teeth grinding, sensitivity or pain in the jaw or temporomandibular joints, facial aches, earaches, chewing problems and jaw locking. A popping or clicking sound may also be present when you open or close your mouth.
There are varied treatments for TMJ, dependent on the type and severity of symptoms that each patient is experiencing. These treatments include teeth replacement, re-positioning of teeth, bite adjustment, use of a plastic mouthpiece, muscle relaxants, exercises and surgery. TMJ surgeries performed by the dentistry specialists at the Port Washington Office of 3V dentistry include Arthrocentesis, Arthroscopy and Total Joint Replacement.
• Gum Treatments
Non-surgical gum treatments can be performed by our dentistry professionals at 3V Dental Associates in Port Washington. The gums, ligaments and bones that support your teeth (the periodontium) form the foundation for your teeth. If any part of this supporting foundation becomes weakened, gum disease may result with red, bleeding gum tissues, loose teeth and changes in your bite. Deep cleaning or root planing by your dentistry expert with use of a local anesthetic and antibiotics can alleviate this condition. More serious problems may require surgery or tooth extraction.
Periodontal laser gum treatment is also offered by our 3V dentistry experts as an alternative gum therapy. By offering our patients this laser gum treatment in conjunction with scaling and root planing, our specialists are providing the most advanced therapeutic gum treatment currently available.
