Aesthetic & Restorative Dentistry – Health, Comfort & Beauty
Dr. Sorin’s practice offers a comprehensive approach to aesthetic and restorative dentistry, one that fully integrates health, comfort, and beauty. He believes patients can have it all: a beautiful smile, healthy gums and teeth, and the ability to chew comfortably. What good is a nice smile if the underlying structure–teeth, gums, bones–makes everyday life uncomfortable or in some instances, painful?
With a strong emphasis on education, Dr. Sorin openly communicates with patients about the value of good dental health. His goal is to provide outstanding, highly personalized care and service in an atmosphere of competence, compassion, and trust. Dr. Sorin takes pride in offering a comprehensive, integrated approach to dental care that changes people’s lives and makes them feel better about themselves.
Many of our patients express an interest in achieving and maintaining healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime. This is an admirable goal, and one that we strongly support.
In our practice, we perform a full evaluation of a patient’s oral health beginning with an assessment of tooth decay and gum condition, followed by an examination of the soft tissue structures inside the mouth, including an oral cancer screening.
Consistent with the latest science, we are aware of how conditions like periodontal disease and a compromised airway can impact our patient’s general health. We test for bacterial pathogens where indicated and conduct a comprehensive airway screening, cognizant of the affect dental health may have on your overall health.
At times, in order to achieve the desired goals, we suggest a comprehensive multidisciplinary care plan.
Patients visit our practice for a variety of issues. Some patients seek our care because of an imbalanced bite, others because of muscle pain or TMJ issues
Our practice offers an integrated approach to restorative dental care that begins with a comprehensive medical and dental history review. We evaluate the muscles, ligaments, and joints that control the opening and the closing of your mouth to determine how the oral structures work together.
During the examination we pay close attention to what the body is telling us. Are the patient’s jaw muscles sore? Are they experiencing pain in the neck, are jaw muscles tender to the touch? Does the TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) make noise when it opens or closes? Have they recently broken a tooth, or are any teeth loose or excessively worn?
These are all signs and symptoms of a functional imbalance; evidence that the parts of the oral system are not working together in a healthy and harmonious fashion.
Frequently, cosmetic dental patients visiting us for the first time express an interest in changing their smile. Some individuals want a smile that is whiter or brighter. Others desire to make changes in the size, shape or alignment of their teeth. Using multiple diagnostic tools including x-rays, photographs, and diagnostic models, we can create the smile our patient used to have or create the smile they have always wanted! Many come to realize that a healthy, attractive, beautiful smile is an important asset in their personal and professional lives.
For over 30 years, Dr. Sorin has enhanced patients’ smiles in a way that is natural and compatible with their self-image. Our approach to dental aesthetics differs significantly from other practitioners that provide cosmetic dentistry in NYC. Our practice is focused on the entirety of your mouth, we believe that your teeth and gums, and your chewing system should be as healthy as your smile. We strive to provide you with the best dental care; reducing the risk of failure and maximizing the long-term durability of your smile.
