    What Are Some Common Dental Emergencies?

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Are you an athlete or an active person who frequently takes part in close contact sports like basketball or hockey? If so, then you won't want to miss the important advice featured in this video about common dental emergencies. According to dental experts, the best way to avoid emergencies like knocked out teeth or chipped teeth during sports is to wear a protective mouthguard.

    Even if you're not an athlete, you can still find yourself vulnerable to common dental emergencies such as toothaches, broken teeth due to a fall, or a jaw fracture due to an injury. No matter what type of dental emergency you find yourself facing, it's imperative that you see a dentist for immediate treatment.

    Here at the offices of Dr. Michael J. Wei, we offer emergency dental services in addition to cosmetic and general dentistry treatments. Call (917) 720-4690 to learn more about our Manhattan practice.

    Are Your Habits Harming the Appearance of Your Teeth?

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Achieving a beautiful smile is the primary goal of many dental clients who choose Cerinate Lumineers, porcelain veneers, and other cosmetic dentistry procedures in order to brighten up their pearly whites. If you're finding it too difficult to get that radiant smile that you've always dreamed of, then you may be surprised to learn that small changes in your lifestyle could help you achieve your own dental goals. Let's examine how your habits could be harming the appearance of your teeth:

    Smoking and Tobacco Use
    It's not a coincidence that smoking and tobacco use are placed at the top of this list, as they pose serious damage to the appearance of your teeth and your oral health. Smoking is one of the leading contributors to tooth discoloration, leukoplakia, plaque buildup, and bad breath. If you're a smoker, then consider kicking this bad habit as soon as possible.

    Brushing Too Rigorously
    We've all heard our dentist recommend brushing after every meal. But did you know that brushing too hard could actually be just as damaging as not brushing at all? Rigorous brushing with a hard toothbrush causes unsightly enamel loss, inflamed gums, and painful cavities. Switch out your hard brush for a soft bristled alternative.

    Substituting Scissors with Your Teeth
    Another bad habit that could be harming the integrity and appearance of your teeth is using them as a tool to open products or to hold items. Never substitute scissors or a knife with your precious teeth or you could run the risk of chipping or cracking one.

    Nail Biting
    In addition to damaging the appearance of your hands, biting your nails is also a nasty habit that can cause your teeth to look less-than-attractive. Chronic nail biting can lead to tooth breakage, and infection since bacteria and dirt can be hiding underneath your fingernails.

    If you're unsatisfied with the appearance of your teeth, then schedule a visit with Dr. Michael J. Wei, DDS, today. The team at our office can help you explore cosmetic dentistry options like Invisalign braces, porcelain veneers, and Cerinate Lumineers.

    What Are the Cosmetic Benefits of Dental Implants?

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Dental implants help you solve issues for patients who are missing one or more teeth. Not only does this help you maintain your oral health and avoid further issues with bone loss, but it also leads to an impressive smile makeover that can bring the following cosmetic benefits:

    A New and Improved Complete Smile
    Missing teeth throw off the aesthetics of your smile. When you get dental implants, you can restore the original aesthetic appeal of your teeth, which gives you more confidence in the look and feel of your smile. Dental implants are designed to look just like natural teeth so no one will know that they are not your original teeth.

    A Way to Reduce Sagging in the Cheeks
    One of the biggest cosmetic issues patients face when they are missing teeth is sagging in the cheeks. Without the teeth there to support it, the structure of the face actually starts to change. When the implants are put into place, though, they can restore the necessary foundation to keep the facial structure where it should be.

    An Easy Way to Maintain a White Smile
    With a strong oral hygiene routine, you can maintain the aesthetic appeal of these replacement teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and teeth whitening treatments help you enjoy a beautiful, bright smile. Talk to your dentist about dental implants and how they can help you get a more attractive smile that you cannot wait to show off for the rest of the world.

    Dr. Michael J. Wei can set you up with dental implants that improve the aesthetics and health of your smile. Our office also specializes in Cerinate Lumineers, porcelain veneers, cosmetic tooth bonding, and Invisalign braces to help you get the most attractive smile possible.
