A dental examination is the single most important step your dentist can take to measure the state of your oral health. Due to the speed with which issues such as periodontal disease and tooth decay can develop, dentists recommend that patients undergo dental examinations at least twice a year. The following information details the primary aspects of a dental examination.
To determine the health of your teeth and gums, your dentist must carefully inspect them. Periodontal disease often develops with several visual symptoms, including swollen and red gums. A dentist can typically identify this problem simply by looking at your gums. Some cavities can also be seen by the naked eye, as tooth decay can create dark spots on the teeth. Your dentist will also look for signs of oral cancer and tooth breakage during his visual assessment.
To ensure that you are practicing the best oral hygiene behaviors possible, your dentist may take a few minutes to ask about your oral hygiene habits. He may inquire about the frequency and consistency of your brushing and flossing activities. If tooth decay is widespread, he may also ask about additional behaviors such as the consumption of sugary foods or use of saliva-restricting medications.
A visual assessment can reveal much about your level of oral health, but it may not be comprehensive enough to uncover subtler problems. If you are attending an initial consultation with a dentist, or if it has been a few years since your last examination, a dentist may recommend that you get oral x-rays. X-rays can bring to light issues such as compromised fillings that have underlying cavities and pockets of tooth decay hidden between teeth.
Are you behind on your dental checkup schedule? If so, call Dr. Michael J. Wei, DDS today at (888) 591-6783 to set up your assessment. Our New York City dental office provides comprehensive general dentistry services, as well as a wide array of cosmetic options like tooth bonding and porcelain veneers.

Manhattan NYC Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei is helping New York City area people who have badly damaged teeth get an attractive new smile with porcelain tooth crowns. Porcelain tooth crowns are a popular dental treatment for people with damaged, chipped or cracked teeth, or a large cavity in a tooth. Today’s modern porcelain composite materials allow cosmetic dentists like Dr. Wei to repair teeth and improve smiles with a strong and durable material that looks natural 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 strong, durable and natural-looking way to repair your teeth and correct your bite.” stated Dr. Michael J. Wei. “Plus, they can be used to provide a smile makeover which will enhance your smile and overall appearance”
