Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei is providing invisalign braces to people in the Manhattan area who desire perfectly straight teeth and a great new smile without having to wear traditional “metal braces.” Invisalign braces are a revolutionary new way to align your teeth faster than traditional metal braces and are less expensive, more comfortable and virtually invisible.
“Invisalign braces are a popular alternative to the ‘traditional’ metal braces that use metal wires and bulky brackets which detract from your image,” stated Dr. Michael J. Wei. “Our clients like Invisalign braces because they’re virtually invisible, align their teeth faster, remove gaps between teeth, and are less expensive and much more comfortable to wear than metal braces.”
Invisalign Braces Offer Many Advantages:
Invisalign braces are nearly invisible when wearing them, are generally faster than traditional braces, are less expensive and more comfortable to wear.
To give you a straight smile you’ve always wanted without having to wear traditional metal braces, Dr. Wei uses Invisalign’s sophisticated new 3D imaging technology to get information about your teeth and bite.
Then, Dr. Wei creates an orthodontic plan designed specifically for your smile with a computerized “blueprint” for constructing your custom-fit Invisalign braces.
Finally, Dr. Wei sends this data to Invisalign where a custom series of clear aligners will be manufactured in a computerized machine for precise fit to your mouth.
Each set of aligners moves your teeth closer to the desired final outcome – a great new smile with perfectly aligned teeth!

One of the easiest ways to enjoy an instant smile makeover is by undergoing teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is a rapid and pain-free cosmetic procedure that can dramatically brighten your smile. Regardless of whether your teeth have become discolored from smoking, coffee, medications, or age, teeth whitening can rejuvenate your smile and give you the white teeth you deserve. The following questions and answers can help you determine if teeth whitening is the right treatment option for you.
Why Should You Get Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening can alleviate any number of discoloration issues. Habitual coffee and tea drinkers can greatly benefit from this treatment option, as can older individuals with years of natural wear and tear on their enamel. Since some types of medication may stain teeth, those with applicable medical conditions can also take advantage of teeth whitening. Individuals with smoking-related teeth discoloration can likewise enjoy brighter teeth with this procedure. However, patients should note that they could experience staining again if they continue to drink dark beverages or smoke.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
The teeth whitening process can be completed in less than one hour and involves no patient discomfort. Once the patient’s teeth have been cleaned and prepared for treatment, the dentist will apply a hydrogen peroxide solution that oxidizes the staining agents in the enamel. This process causes those agents to disintegrate, which leads to lighter colored teeth. The solution may also undergo a special light treatment to intensify its capabilities.
What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?
A brighter smile can instantly improve your mood and self-confidence, which may enhance both your professional and personal aspirations. If you are considering teeth whitening, contact your dentist to discuss your options. With the proper treatment, you can soon be enjoying the beautiful smile you want.
Dr. Michael J. Wei offers both in-office and at-home teeth whitening services to patients in the greater New York City area. If you want a brighter smile, don’t wait any longer. Call our office today at (888) 591-6783 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Michael J. Wei.

Tooth enamel often stains over an extended period of time, leading individuals to wonder when their once-white smiles turned dull and discolored. Because enamel is porous, it is highly susceptible to stains from a variety of causes. Common culprits are food and drink. If you regularly drink dark beverages like red wine, coffee, or black tea, you may notice their cumulative effects on your teeth. Smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco can also cause stains on your teeth. Even poor oral hygiene habits can make your smile tarnish over time. If you are not consistently brushing away plaque, it will build on your teeth, turning them a dull yellow. Older individuals may suffer from stained teeth simply because their enamel has become damaged with age.
If you are concerned about the look of your stained teeth, you’ll be glad to know that help is available. With just one visit to Dr. Michael J. Wei, you can undergo teeth-whitening treatment to quickly restore your bright and beautiful smile. To schedule an appointment at our Manhattan office, call (888) 591-6783.

Smile makeovers offer those who suffer from cosmetic imperfections the chance to restore their smile and regain their confidence. One popular option among cosmetic dentistry patients is porcelain veneer treatment. Porcelain veneers are extremely thin yet highly durable porcelain coverings that can disguise a wide range of smile flaws. The following information offers a detailed look at why you may want to consider porcelain veneers and how the treatment procedure works.
Deciding that you want porcelain veneers
Undergoing a cosmetic dentistry procedure is a personal choice. Many times individuals choose porcelain veneers because of a past incident that has damaged their teeth. Chipped or cracked teeth can be easily masked by porcelain veneers, as can problems like teeth gaps or minor malocclusions. Do you have discolored teeth that teeth whitening cannot adequately address? Porcelain veneers can provide you with the aesthetic results you want.
Receiving preparatory treatment for porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneer treatment typically involves two trips to the dentist. During your initial visit, your dentist will gather all pertinent information regarding the teeth that will be fitted with veneers. He will evaluate your dental structure, face shape, and natural teeth color. Your dentist will also take impressions of your teeth so that your veneers can blend perfectly into your current smile.
Getting fitted with your porcelain veneers
The second and final visit involves the application of your porcelain veneers. First, your dentist will perform a comprehensive teeth cleaning. This will provide a desirable surface for the application of cement that will bond the veneers to your teeth. Next, your dentist will apply the cement and gently lay your veneers over it. He may also make some minor adjustments to their placement to ensure the best cosmetic results. Once you and your dentist are satisfied with your veneer placement, he will administer a special light to harden the cement and complete your veneer treatment.
