Invisalign – How It Works

More people are choosing Invisalign to straighten their teeth instead of traditional braces. Invisalign braces are easy to clean, painless, and invisible—hence their name.

Invisalign uses a series of aligner trays rather than the traditional bracket and wire system to straighten the teeth. New molds are taken every two weeks, and the series of Invisalign trays slowly moves the teeth into their straight positions. Watch this video to learn more about this process.

The office of Dr. Michael J. Wei is focused on excellence and serving our patients’ needs. Contact us to schedule an appointment by calling (212) 982-4080 or visit our website for more information about our office.

Not Very Happy With Your Smile? What Veneers Can Do for You

Dental veneers offer a complete makeover for your teeth. Applied in just two visits to the dentist’s office, the adhesion of veneers will improve your smile tremendously. Here are some of the benefits of choosing veneers:

African American Smile

  • Easy Application
    Applying veneers causes minimal pain and discomfort, requires no recovery period, and has nearly no side effects. The procedure is less invasive than other cosmetic dentistry procedures and maintains the stability of natural teeth. Veneers instantaneously correct crooked teeth, spacing, and staining.

  • Natural-Looking Teeth
    Porcelain veneers match the white translucence of tooth enamel and reflect light in the same manner, resulting in an even smile. Veneers are shaped from a mold of your tooth and created to match the natural tooth in shape, size, and color. They are designed to complement your mouth and look like natural teeth.

  • Improved Dental Health
    Good oral hygiene is all that’s required for proper maintenance of veneers, but they offer something more for your teeth. Studies show that bonded porcelain veneers on a chipped, fractured, or worn tooth protects and strengthens the weakened tooth.  Veneers reinforce the tooth and resist the abrasion that natural teeth are vulnerable to.

  • Stronger, Stain-Resistant Teeth
    Veneers are exceptionally stain-resistant. The ceramic porcelain prevents stain-producing products from adhering to its surface, making your veneers more stain-resistant than natural teeth. Since veneers will strengthen your weakened teeth, you’ll be able to eat foods that used to cause pain.

If you’re interested in veneers, then come to the office of Dr. Michael J. Wei. Dr. Michael J Wei is one of Manhattan’s top cosmetic dentists and has over 11 years of experience with porcelain veneers and a warranty to back his work.

The Advantages of Pain-Free Lumineers

Is your smile something you try to hide? Do you lack the confidence to smile out loud?  Well now you can have a stunning, permanently white smile with Lumineers!

Pain-free lumineers are ultra-thin veneers made of porcelain.  A special patented porcelain that transforms your entire appearance, yet looks completely natural!

There’s no pain!

And, because they leave your teeth intact, they’re completely reversible.  You could have a permanently white, perfect smile in only two visits!  You can look fabulous for your big day, vacation, graduation, or that big job interview.  Even if you have dental problems, Lumineers can give you a healthy-looking smile.  With Lumineers, you’ll never feel like hiding your smile again.

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.
