    Spotlight on Excessive or Uneven Gums

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Certain oral health issues like excessive or uneven gums can ruin the aesthetic appeal of a person’s smile. If you suffer from this condition, your cosmetic dentist can improve the look of your gums with a gum lift.

    Different Types of Fillings for Dental Patients

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Your cosmetic dentist can set you up with fillings that mimic the look of your natural teeth. If you have to get fillings to fix a cavity or other issues from tooth decay, consider the following options:

    Composite Fillings
    These fillings are made with a mixture of resins and fine particles to create a finished product that looks just like your natural tooth. Although they are not the most durable filling option, they do provide a superior aesthetic appeal that lets you smile with confidence. Your cosmetic dentist might choose to bond or cement the filling to ensure that it stays in place and help you regain normal oral function.

    Ionomers
    Ionomers are another tooth-colored option that dentists can use to fill in holes in the teeth. These fillings are made from materials like ground glass and acrylic resins. They are most often used to fill spots that rest near the gum line or the root because they are not durable enough to withstand a lot of biting pressure on a regular basis. These fillings also release a tiny amount of fluoride to help make the surrounding teeth and enamel stronger.

    Porcelain
    Fillings can also be made of porcelain, glass powder, and ceramic. Dentists most often use these kinds of fillings for crowns, veneers, onlays, and inlays. These fillings are more durable than the composite or ionmer versions, but they are still susceptible to damage with prolonged exposure to heavy biting. Talk to your dentist about porcelain fillings to see if they can conquer your oral issues.

    Dr. Kenn Kokosian, D.D.S., P.C. is here to help you find the right kind of filling for your needs. As one of the leading cosmetic dentists in Manhattan, Dr. Kakosian is here to provide the right treatment options for each patient.

    What Is a Cavity?

    Last updated 2 years ago

    A cavity is a hole in the tooth that starts off small but can quickly expand. A breakdown or bacteria penetration into the solid part of the tooth causes this hole that can lead to bigger issues if it is not properly treated.

    If it gets deep enough, a cavity can move into the nerve or the pulp of the tooth and cause significant pain. Check out this video to learn more about cavities and how they form.

    Dr. Kenn Kokosian, D.D.S., P.C. provides tooth-colored fillings that can fix your cavities. He also specializes in dental implants, Invisalign, and tooth whitening treatments to give you a more attractive smile.

    Stay Safe During Summer Sports With a Mouth Guard!

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Playing sports is great for your physical health, but not always so wonderful for your teeth. In all kinds of athletic activities, but particularly in contact sports, your teeth are at risk. One wrong hit, and you could be left with a broken or lost tooth. You can avoid being one of the hundreds of thousands of people who experience a face or mouth injury each year playing sports by wearing a mouth guard.

    Mouth guards are small, plastic pieces that fit around your teeth. In addition to protecting you from tooth loss, mouth guards keep your jaw and soft tissue safe from injuries associated with mouth hits, such as a blow that forces teeth into the lower jaw. Your dentist can custom-fit a mouth guard to give you the best level of protection.

    Stay safe this summer with a mouth guard from Dr. Kenn Kakosian, D.D.S., P.C. Our NYC dental office also provides a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments, including veneers and Invisalign. Make an appointment today by calling (212) 661-9777.
