Preventative Dentistry

Maintaining your oral health is not just important for looking great.

Our practice philosophy incorporates current research that clearly links your oral and overall health.  We discuss your concerns regarding your smile and oral health. By performing a thorough clinical exam for early diagnoses, we can address concerns before they become costly dental procedures.

Preventative dentistry is an important component of patient care here at Brooklyn Dental Studio. Read more about or preventative dentistry services.

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are tooth-colored restorations used for the treatment of mild to moderate dental decay.  Composites come in a variety of colors and shades, and may be mixed to achieve the best match to one’s existing smile.

crowns

Crowns

A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that fits over the remaining natural tooth structure and protects the tooth.  While crowns may be all metal, those we place are usually all ceramic or, in some instances, porcelain fused to metal. Crowns placed at Brooklyn Dental Studio are matched exactly to your smiles shape and color.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an ideal solution to replace one or more missing teeth.  An implant is comprised of multiple components:

  1. The implant itself is placed into the jaw bone and replaces the root of the missing tooth.  As bone fuses around to the implant, the implant acts as an anchor that will hold and support the visible portion of the tooth above the gum line.
  2. The abutment is attached to the implant via a small screw.  The abutment will hold the crown that will be placed onto the tooth
  3.  The implant crown is attached to the abutment.  This crown becomes a natural part of your smile, blending in color and shape to the surrounding teeth.

veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are ceramic facings that are bonded to front teeth to reshape teeth, close gaps, cover stains, or treat chipped or broken teeth. To bond a veneer to the front of a tooth, the tooth must first be prepared very conservatively, taking away just millimeters of tooth structure, which will be replaced by the veneer. Veneers are made of durable ceramic material, and are custom matched to the color of your existing smile.

Invisalign

Invisalign offers a way to straighten teeth without wearing braces or brackets. While most patients seek to straighten teeth for cosmetic reasons, straight teeth also help maintain a healthy smile. When gaps are between teeth, food often gets stuck in them, causing decay to develop. Misaligned teeth also make it difficult to clean between teeth.

Prosthodontic Services

Dr. Wolfe underwent a three year postgraduate residency in Prosthodontics at New York Hospital Queens. Prosthodontists are experts in cosmetics, dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, temporomandibular disorders (TMJ/TMD), and more. Some prosthetic cases can be incredibly complex and involve collaboration with other dental and medical specialists.
