Cosmetic and Restorative Dental Services dental-service2

Focusing on long-term patient care, from regular check-ups to full mouth restorations, Dr. Mariana Savel, DDS offers personalized consultations for the best course of treatment, with affiliations to some of the most reputable Staten Island oral surgeons, orthodontists, pediatric dentists and periodontists, should a referral to a specialist be necessary.

 

Treatments often include:

FilingsPorcelain, mercury free filings

Dr. Mariana uses a composite resin, a natural-looking, tooth-colored alternative to unsightly silver fillings. Composite resin is a tough, plastic material that is simple to apply and virtually impossible to detect.

 

 

 

 

Root-Canal1
Root Treatment Therapy
A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.

 

 

 

 

 

Bonding-1Bonding
An alternative to veneers is a process called bonding, in which a tooth-colored material that looks like the enamel of your teeth is molded and shaped, and then hardened and polished. Bonding is often used for chipped or fractured teeth or to close the space between two teeth. It can also be used to completely cover the surface of each tooth to cosmetically mask discolored or malpositioned teeth. It is a painless procedure, where anesthesia is generally not required. The results are immediate and usually require little to no tooth reduction.

 

 

 

 

BridgeBridges and Crowns

Utilizing state of the art laboratories, Dr. Mariana customizes bridges and crowns that are natural-looking and can replace one, or a section of missing teeth. Since they are custom-made, bridges and crowns are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth.

 

 

 

 

PereodontalPeriodontal Treatment

Advanced gum disease sometime requires the dentist to clean below the gum line to remove stubborn, crusty deposits called tartar or calculus, and to remove damage near the tooth root. This is done to prevent further damage and restore and stabilize the tooth. After cleaning, the root may need to be smoothed, or planed, to restore it as much as possible to its original shape. Planing also allows your gum tissue to better attach itself and heal properly.

 

 

 

 

Bliching1Bleaching and Teeth Whitening

Have whiter, brighter teeth with safe and effective bleaching techniques customized for you. Bleaching is a relatively new and popular way to achieve a bright, white smile. Dr. Mariana advocates at home bleaching for safer, less damaging results on tooth enamel. At home bleaching involves the fabrication of a customized mold that fits over the teeth and is filled with a solution of carbamide peroxide the patient can wear for 2-4 hours or while sleeping. The process usually takes 2-3 weeks to achieve desired results.

 

 

 

VeneerPorcelain Veneers or Laminates

Simple and inexpensive way to get immediate, dramatic, and long-lasting results of a perfect smile. Lasting longer than bleaching or bonding, porcelain laminate veneers are resistant to stains and chips, are extremely natural looking, and won’t discolor over time. Porcelain Veneers can correct a multitude of imperfections in a smile, including changing the color of teeth, changing the shape of the teeth, making crooked teeth look straight, correcting gaps or spaces between teeth, lengthening teeth, and making the arch wider to give greater support to the lips and cheeks and create a fuller smile.
