Dental Bonding

Drs. Stein and Weiss can improve the appearance of your smile in just one appointment through cosmetic dental bonding. This non-invasive aesthetic procedure involves applying composite resin to the teeth — the same material that is commonly used in composite fillings for cavity treatment. This material is derived from hard, durable plastics that can withstand daily wear and tear from chewing or biting. Your dentist colors the composite to match your natural tooth’s shade, and then shapes the resin to fill in uneven spaces, correct small chips in enamel, or cover stains and discoloration. Slight imperfections can be camouflaged in less than one hour! Before leaving, your dentist will polish the composite material until it matches your tooth’s natural, glossy finish.

Professional Whitening

The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry offers professional teeth whitening treatments that fit your lifestyle. Whether through an at-home or in-office procedure, our treatments can help you achieve a smile that is up to eight shades lighter! Professional whitening works best on teeth that have “extrinsic” stains, or discoloration on the outer layers of enamel. “Intrinsic” stains, or stains occurring within the inner tooth structure, are usually best treated through porcelain veneers.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin pieces of ceramic that are custom-fabricated to cover imperfections in teeth. While a costlier treatment upfront, porcelain veneers can last for 10 to 20 years before replacement is needed. Veneers cover the front, visible area of your smile, and can offer dramatic results similar to that of orthodontics, whitening and bonding combined! Patients should know that porcelain veneers are a permanent treatment; the amount of enamel removed during placement is significant enough that the tooth will require protection through veneers for a lifetime.

Porcelain Dental Crowns

Though dental crowns are used during restoration treatment for teeth, they can also provide aesthetic improvement for teeth that have faced deterioration through injury, trauma or decay. Crowns used in aesthetic dentistry are created with medical-grade ceramics, metals, zirconia, or from porcelain that has been fused to metal, and provide superior protection and natural-looking results. The crown serves as a cap that covers the visible area of the tooth, and can improve the color, size, and overall appearance of a tooth. The powerful dental bonding agents we use to secure dental crowns will keep your crown in place, so you can eat and drink normally. In addition, for teeth that are weakened from damage or decay, dental crowns will strengthen your smile and prevent additional infection or tooth decay from occurring in the future.

Dr. Abraham E. Stein

From start to finish, a fabulous experience (sounds like an oxymoron when talking about "dental visits", but actually true). From stepping in and encountering a superbly run front desk and incredible dental hygienist (whom I have seen for 20+ years), great dental assistants, and of course the master himself -- Dr. Stein. He has done amazing things to my 65+ year-old choppers such that they are in the top tier of my peers. Need I say more?
