Why You Need to Replace a Missing Tooth

It’s comforting to think that only a handful of people are missing all of their teeth. And if you’re missing a tooth or two — at least it isn’t all of them. Truth be told, none other than the esteemed American Dental Association says that 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. And, […]


Do You Torture Your Teeth?

New Yorkers pride themselves on being tough. Tough enough to deal with the ancient subway system. Tough enough to deal with masses of humanity on the sidewalks. Additionally, tough enough to live in the city. Our teeth are even tougher. But that toughness leads to problems — we take them for granted. We do all […]


Filling You Can’t See

Caries. Doesn’t that sound like a term for something that had been left for dead out in the desert in an old Clint Eastwood Western? Or maybe a term from Olympic volleyball.

Porcelain Veneers in One Appointment

Bonding, A Great Option for Great-Looking Teeth

Bonding. When you see that word, you may think of Miss Moneypenny and Q and some endless marathon of James Bond movies on TBS over a winter weekend. But if you have some flaws with the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, you could think of bonding, dental bonding. Dental bonding can be a good solution […]

What Are Inlays and Onlays

At Prosthodontics of New York, we use these two dental restorations for returning normal tooth structure and function, and as an alternative […]


It’s Not the Tappan Zee

Before the real emergence of dental implants, dental bridges were the preferred method for replacing a missing tooth. Dental bridges, as their name implies, “bridge” the gap created by a missing tooth or a couple of teeth. They are one of our treatments are Prosthodontics of New York. Why replace a missing tooth?
