Dental Health
At Gentle Dental LI, we believe that the good overall oral health of our patients can help them avoid serious illnesses or conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke and pulmonary disease. Naturally, regular brushing and flossing are important, but scheduling dental check-ups at least twice a year can help to ensure optimal dental health through such procedures as:

Dentures
Gentle Dental LI offers comprehensive removable denture procedures to replace missing teeth. We can design a partial denture that is connected by a pink or gum-colored plastic base resin that helps keep it in place. We can also design a full denture which offers a highly natural appearance.

Root Canal (Endodontic)
This service can help save a severely decayed or damaged tooth from being extracted. Root canal therapy is also used to alleviate pain and reduce the risk of infections or abscess, which can cause severe complications to one’s overall health.

Periodontal treatment
Periodontal disease is a condition in which bacteria attack the tissues that surround and support teeth. Put simply, it is an infection that can result in tooth loss if not treated. Since it is often painless, many patients are unaware they have this disease until their gums and bones are seriously affected. The good news? Periodontal disease can be treated in its early stages, reinforcing the necessity for regular dental check-ups.

Scaling and root planning
This periodontal treatment cleans the tooth of plaque and bacteria, thereby helping to support the bones and ligaments that hold your teeth in place.

Cosmetic Dentistry
At Gentle Dental LI, our Number Goal is to the help you maintain a healthy, happy and ageless smile. We offer a number of cosmetic techniques and options that can not only improve your smile, but your oral health as well.

Porcelain Veneers
This is a custom-made shell that’s bonded over an individual tooth to create an aesthetically pleasing smile. Porcelain veneers help correct the shape or contour of teeth as well as fill space and/or gaps between teeth. They can also rectify discolored, chipped and misaligned teeth.

Crowns
Today’s natural-looking crowns are indistinguishable from original teeth. Gentle Dental LI uses either translucent porcelain or zirconia crowns to repair damaged or diseased teeth, helping restore them to their normal shape and appearance.

Bridges and Dental Implants
Porcelain or zirconia crowns are also used to restore spaces in the mouth because they can match the shade and color of your natural teeth and their placement.

Dental Bonding
This procedure results in a functional tooth and overall cosmetic improvement. We use a strong, safe, tooth-colored composite resin material that has replaced the all-too-obvious silver filings.

Zoom Teeth Whitening
One of our most popular cosmetic procedures, Philips Zoom is the most requested professional whitening brand because it offers options that are cognizant of our patients’ time and budget.

Tooth-Colored Fillings
A composite resin or a glass ionomer material is used to restore and protect destroyed teeth. This material also offers the benefit of releasing fluoride to strengthen the tooth structure while also providing durability and aesthetics.

Clear Teeth Aligners
Invisible teeth aligners help straighten crooked or misaligned teeth with a more pleasant look rather than bulky metal braces. The aligner is a removable retainer, which guides the teeth into a more ideal location over the treatment period in order to create a more pleasing smile.

 

Other Dental Services

Gentle Dental LI offers additional services that further ensure optimum oral health, while helping you maintain a healthy, happy smile.

Oral Cancer screenings
Since this disease is often difficult to detect in its early stages, it is one of the reasons why we recommend regularly scheduled dental appointments so that we can also perform screenings during these visits.

Dentures
Gentle Dental LI offers comprehensive removable denture procedures to replace missing teeth. We can design a partial denture that is connected by a pink or gum-colored plastic base resin that helps keep it in place. We can also design a full denture which offers a highly natural appearance.

Sleep Apnea
This non-invasive oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for preventing snoring. It also keeps the airway open to avoid Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Worn only while sleeping, the appliance fits much like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer.
