Manhattan NYC Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei is helping New York City area people who have damaged teeth get an attractive new smile with porcelain tooth crowns. Porcelain tooth crowns are a popular dental treatment for people who have damaged, chipped or cracked teeth, or a large cavity within their tooth. With today’s modern porcelain composite materials, cosmetic dentists like Dr. Wei are now able to repair teeth and improve smiles with a strong and durable material that looks naturally white and can last for decades.
Porcelain Tooth Crowns can be used for:
Filling embarrassing gaps and spaces between teeth;
Repairing cracks and chips in teeth;
Shaping teeth that are damaged, chipped, cracked or broken;
Whitening teeth that are discolored or dull.
Providing natural-looking white teeth - porcelain tooth crowns look like natural teeth and provide a bright-white new smile that improves overall appearance.
Porcelain tooth-colored crowns are custom-made in Dr. Wei’s dental lab to restore a tooth and repair damage for a structurally-strong tooth. A patient’s first appointment includes taking an impression of the tooth, preparing the tooth and attaching a temporary crown. Between visits, Dr. Wei’s dental lab creates the custom tooth crowns. During the last appointment, Dr. Wei removes the temporary crown and permanently installs the permanent porcelain tooth crown.
"Porcelain tooth crowns are a durable and natural-looking solution to repairing damaged teeth," stated Dr. Michael J. Wei, a Cosmetic Dentist in Manhattan NYC. "Our patients love porcelain crowns because they look like natural white tooth material and the end result is a complete smile makeover that makes them want to show off their smiles again."

While dentists often provide treatment for cavities and periodontal disease, there are plenty of other services they can provide. As an expert in all conditions relating to the health of the mouth and jaw, a dentist can help patients suffering from TMJ disorder. This painful condition, which can cause chronic pain in the jaw, neck, shoulders, and head, typically requires professional treatment.
What is TMJ disorder?
TMJ disorder is a malfunction of the temporomandibular joint in the jaw. This joint is vulnerable to cartilage damage and misalignment issues. These problems sometimes develop due to inherent jaw formation complications or chronic conditions such as arthritis. In some cases, though, patient behaviors can prompt the development of TMJ disorder. Bruxism, or tooth grinding, is a common cause of this problem.
Why Does TMJ Disorder Cause Migraines?
When the jaw joint cannot properly function, it can lead to significant stress in the joint and surrounding tissues. The muscles and connective tissues that aid in jaw movement can become strained, which may bring on stiffness and headache pain. If bruxism is contributing to TMJ disorder, a sufferer may apply undue force to the teeth and jaw joint for hours at a time during sleep. This excessive pressure can lead to chronic and severe migraine discomfort.
How Can a Dentist Alleviate TMJ Disorder-Induced Migraines?
TMJ disorder can present in multiple ways, including through migraines. With a comprehensive evaluation, a dentist can determine the nature of a patient’s TMJ problems and recommend effective treatment strategies. Many patients find substantial relief from their TMJ disorder and migraine pain with the help of alignment devices provided by their dentist.
Do you suffer from frequent migraines? You could have TMJ disorder. Let Dr. Michael J. Wei, DDS help you find the cause behind your chronic migraine issues.

New York City Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei is assisting people who have teeth that are damaged, chipped, gapped, stained or misaligned by repairing their teeth with porcelain veneers. “Porcelain veneers” are thin shells of custom-made high-tech ceramic composite used for repairing damaged teeth with a strong, permanent porcelain material.
Installing porcelain veneers to damaged teeth is a painless procedure which usually involves just two visits to Dr. Wei’s dental office. During the first visit, Dr. Wei takes an impression of the patient’s teeth so he can design and shape the porcelain veneers to precisely fit the teeth and smile. The second visit includes fixing the porcelain veneers to the teeth. After porcelain veneers are installed, they provide a beautiful, white smile that can last for many decades with proper care.
Porcelain Veneers are a Popular Dental Treatment for:
* Repairing damaged, decayed, chipped or cracked teeth that make it embarrassing to smile;
* Straightening teeth for a more appealing smile;
* Filling unsightly spaces and gaps between teeth to improve a person’s smile;
* Whitening severely stained or dark-colored teeth that look unsightly
* Whitening teeth for a beautiful bright-white natural-looking smile.
“Our patients love their porcelain veneers because they provide a complete ‘smile makeover’ for a dramatic improvement in their appearance,” stated Dr. Wei, a Cosmetic Dentist in Manhattan. “Porcelain veneers are completely painless, effective at repairing damaged teeth and completely transform our patient’s appearance usually in just two visits.”

Proper brushing techniques are vital for the prevention of tooth decay and periodontal disease. This video explains the steps to take when brushing your teeth.
The position of your toothbrush matters when cleaning your teeth. If you are brushing the chewing surfaces of your teeth, hold your toothbrush flush to them. This position helps to dislodge food particles and plaque between teeth. If you are cleaning the sides of your teeth, angle your brush toward your gums. Plaque can accumulate anywhere on your teeth, but it collects most often where the gums meet the teeth.
Dr. Michael J. Wei, DDS offers general dentistry care for residents of the greater New York City area. To make an appointment with Dr. Wei, call (888) 591-6783.
