At Kips Bay Dental, we offer an extensive range of dental services. This includes pediatric, cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry. We have a Board Certified Periodontist and Board Certified Endodontist located on-site for specialized cases, ensuring you utter comfort and convenience.
Restorative and general dentistry at Kips Bay Dental is mainly focused on restoring the teeth’ function and preventing tooth decay when needed. To achieve this, Dr. Zamani and our team help patients create an oral health routine consisting of a dental cleaning, consistent exams, and at-home care. With regular maintenance and care, you can stop the build-up of calculus and plaque under the gums and around the teeth, which often results in a range of dental problems such as bone damage, gingivitis, tooth decay, and ultimately, tooth loss.
WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT DURING YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
On your initial visit to Kips Bay Dental, we start with an extensive exam of your gums and teeth to develop a treatment plan that will best fit your unique oral needs. The examination includes digital x-rays that detect whether there is decay between your teeth. This is safer than traditional film. Every examination involves a cleaning where our dental hygienist uses an ultrasonic power scaler and hand instruments to break up tartar and plaque build-up below your gum line. Irrigation is simultaneously applied to flush out biofilm and harmful bacteria in your gum pockets, promoting healing. This technology lets our dental hygienists treat our patients safely in a shorter period.
During your first consultation, it is crucial to assess your smile in detail. To achieve this, we carry out a painless iTero 3D digital smile imitation, allowing our dentists to assess both your smile and bite. This technology can also be utilized in aiding the restoration of teeth with bridges or crowns or give you a clear picture of the cosmetic treatment that can enhance your smile. Once your consultation ends, our team will go over the at-home care routine to ensure you maintain your teeth’ health.
RESTORATIVE AND GENERAL DENTISTRY SERVICES:
DENTAL CLEANING, EXAM, AND CONSULTATION
Getting examined and cleaned regularly prevents calculus and plaque accumulation of plaque under your gums and around the teeth. Eliminating these deposits using digital x-ray examinations and by scaling can prevent tooth loss, bad breath (halitosis), bone loss, gingivitis, and tooth decay.
ITERO ELEMENT INTRAORAL SCANNER
“We have a NO-GOOP Policy!” our doctors often exclaim. The goopy impressions days for dental implants, bridges, and crowns are no more. Using the iTero Element scanner, our doctors take intraoral digital images for our Invisalign clear aligner therapy, as well as our bridge and crown restorative workflows. Besides more comfortable appointments, our patients also enjoy better quality impression that produces longer-lasting, higher-quality dentistry!Learn More
A lot of times, your tooth’s visible part, also referred to as the crown, is the only thing that is addressed. However, perio maintenance takes care of your teeth, bones, gums, and roots. This is continuous maintenance and deep cleaning for the tissues that have been affected by periodontal disease. Suppose your gums easily bleed while you are brushing your teeth, or they become inflamed. Perio maintenance may be the solution that will help in improving this issue.
COMPOSITE BONDING AND FILLINGS
A tooth-colored material is what composite resin essentially is. It is used simultaneously to improve your smile and fill a cavity. A special light is used to bond the resin to your teeth, and it also erases the decay repair’s appearance.
The closest thing you will get to natural and healthy teeth are dental implants. Dental implants have a similar shape to screws, and in essence, you can think of them as tooth roots, except they are artificial. They are usually placed in the jawbone, where they bond with the natural bone then become a strong base that will support single or multiple artificial teeth, also referred to as crowns.
A root procedure involves saving and repairing an infected or badly damaged tooth instead of getting rid of it. Most of our patients experience little to no pain when they come in for a root canal due to our endodontist’s precision and the advances in dentistry.
Kips Bay Dental offers a wide range of treatments to reverse or stop gum disease. Most treatment in the early stages usually involves non-surgical procedures such as specialized deep cleaning, root planing, and scaling. During the more advanced stages, some of the surgical procedures that can be recommended include opening up the gum tissue that is affected to get rid of calculus build-up.
CROWNS & BRIDGES
Most bridges and crowns help in restoring your smile’s health. A crown “caps” or covers your tooth, so it is restored to its regular function, size, and shape. In most cases, crowns are used to treat extremely decayed or broken teeth, especially ones that fillings cannot fix. On the other hand, a dental bridge is made up of two teeth crowns on each gap’s side.
PARTIALS & DENTURES
Like all our other listed treatments, your needs will determine what denture design will best suit you. Usually, removable partial dentures are made up of replacement teeth which are affixed to plastic bases that are either gum-colored or pink. They are built with clasps or connectors, which connect to your teeth.
Frenectomies are surgical procedures used to get rid of the frenum in your mouth. In essence, a frenum is a muscular bond connecting two tissues located inside the gums and mouth and inside the lips and cheeks. Patients who undergo a frenectomy confirm that it promotes self-confidence, enhances bite function, and reduces discomfort.
Our experienced dentists take part in ongoing education to ensure they give state-of-the-art surgical treatments. This includes the entire process, from discovering oral cancer to extracting a tooth. Our team is highly trained to recognize and recommend the best approach you should take.
