Crooked and painful; Cristina’s smile story.

When Cristina noticed how much she refrained from smiling on a daily basis - because her smile was not only crooked, but also literally painful for her - she knew it was time to get it fixed. 

A few caps or crowns here and there didn’t quite do the trick. She spent a long time searching for the right kind of dentist who could help her and her unique issue of an asymmetrical smile.

Dental Implants: An Overview

Dental implants are small titanium screws that are inserted directly into jawbone to replace the roots of missing teeth. Replacing the roots of missing teeth is important for the preservation of both bite strength and facial structure. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that work to address both of these problems.

Can I Use My Flex Plan for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Financing Cosmetic Dentistry | NYC | Manhatan

Can you use your FSA or HSA for cosmetic dentistry? Most likely not. These plans are designed to cover the cost of medical and dental expenses not fully covered by insurance. They seldom include procedures that would be considered aesthetic-only. However, it is possible to use your flexible or healthcare spending account for restorative services with functional benefit.

Do Dental Implants Hurt?

The placement of dental implants at our Manhattan office is virtually painless. Thanks to advancements in both implant technology and topical anesthetics, we are able to place dental implants without heavy sedation and, while some mild discomfort may linger for a day or two following implant placement, over-the-counter medications are typically enough to address the problem until it subsides on its own.
