Sedation Dentistry: Never Worry About Anxiety and Pain in the Dentist's Office Again

Many people are hesitant to visit the dentist, because they are afraid of the procedures, sounds, or sensations. Whatever the case, it is no longer necessary to feel anxious at the dentist’s office. There are a variety of sedatives available to suit anyone’s needs. Here is an overview of sedation dentistry.

Nitrous Oxide

  • Types of Sedatives

There are three basic types of sedatives that dentists use for sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas” is an easy option for quick procedures such as a cleaning. Other options include IV sedation and sedative pills. The option chosen depends on the procedure to be performed, the patient’s preference, and his or her health record.

  • How It Works

A common misconception about sedation dentistry is that sedated patients are unconscious during the procedure. This isn’t true. Instead, your body is put into a deeply relaxed state so that, if you do fall asleep, it is a natural sleep. Your body still has the ability to respond to verbal commands even if you may not have a memory of the procedure afterward.

  • When It Can Be Used

Some medications or ailments make sedation dentistry unsafe for particular patients. It is up to the dentist to make the final decision for the safety of the patient. Make sure you tell your doctor about your medical history and any medications you are taking.

If you are afraid of the dentist or the procedures, then come to the office of Dr. Michael J. Wei. With sedation dentistry available for an array of services, we’ll make sure you’re comfortable throughout your procedure. We also provide Cerinate Lumineers, Invisalign, and cosmetic tooth bonding.

An Overview of Cosmetic Tooth Bonding and Contouring

If your teeth have minor imperfections, like chips, slight overlapping, or cracks, then crowns and veneers aren’t the only options. Cosmetic tooth bonding and contouring are simple, safe, and effective solutions for these small problems. Here is an overview of these procedures.

  • Cosmetic Bonding

During cosmetic bonding, a tooth-colored resin is applied to your teeth and shaped according to the desired outcome—filling cracks and chips and covering discoloration. Your dentist will match a particular resin to the exact shade of your tooth. The resin is then hardened with ultraviolet light, making the finish permanent. Finally, your dentist will polish the resin to replicate your teeth’s natural gleam. Dental bonding is affordable, painless, and typically takes under an hour.

  • Contouring

Tooth contouring is a simple procedure. Your dentist will take x-rays of the teeth to determine whether or not the tooth is suitable for the procedure. After marking the excess dental material with a pencil, your dentist will then file the parts of the tooth that need reshaping. Although your dentist will be wearing away parts of your teeth, this procedure generally does not require anesthesia and causes only slight discomfort.

  • The Benefits of Bonding and Contouring

Bonding and contouring allow people to change small aspects of their smile without spending money and time installing more drastic solutions such as veneers or crowns. These procedures still result in a great smile in a quicker and more cost-efficient way.

If you want to perfect your smile, then come to the office of Dr. Michael J. Wei to learn more about the options available to you. With over 11 years of experience in contouring and bonding, Dr. Wei guarantees results. Contact us for an appointment by calling (212) 982-4080 or visit our website to learn more.

Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei Providing Lumineers

Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei is repairing teeth and providing smile makeovers to New York City area patients who have chipped or misaligned teeth.

“Lumineers” by Cerinate are a popular way to permanently repair chipped, damaged or misaligned teeth and provide patients with a complete “smile makeover” that makes them look and feel great.

Similar to porcelain veneers, Lumineers are porcelain “shells” that Dr. Wei adheres to the front of teeth to repair them. The advantage of Lumineers by Cerinate over porcelain veneers is they are a non-invasive and pain-free option to porcelain veneers. Lumineers give patients the same fantastic, natural-looking smile by repairing and/or straightening your teeth and with proper care, they can last a lifetime.

“Your lumineers will be designed to improve your smile, as well as your overall appearance,” stated Dr. Michael J. Wei.  “If you’ve fallen in love with smiles in magazines, bring the photos to your visit and we’ll help you design the perfect smile for you. I consider your existing teeth and your facial features such as your smile and face shape and skin tone when designing the perfect lumineers for you.”

Lumineers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment for correcting problems such as:

* Chipped and damaged teeth

* Misalignment of teeth

* Prominent canines (fangs)

* Bad bite

* Cavities

* Whitening stained teeth
