Importance of Lifelong Dental Care and Periodontal Treatment

Dr. Binod Verma wants his patients to be healthy and take good care of their teeth. This is why he stresses the importance of lifelong dental care and periodontal treatment offered here at Family Dental Rego Park. We provide a variety of procedures for gum disease and to help patients maintain proper periodontal health. This includes preventative measures and oral health education, as well as periodontal treatments for gum disease.

Unfortunately, without proper dental care and periodontal treatment, patients can experience a wide range of problems. These may include:

  • High risk of heart disease

  • Frequent mouth and gum infections

  • Mouth ulcers and gum problems

  • Bad breath (halitosis)

  • Teeth and jaw pain

  • Digestion issues

  • Infertility and pregnancy complications

Proper dental care starts at home with teeth brushing and flossing twice a day and eating a healthy diet. Here in our Elmhurst, NY office, we like to see patients twice a year for examinations, x-rays and professional cleanings. By seeing us on a regular basis, Dr. Verma is able to recognize early signs of gum disease and provide proper periodontal treatment. Call us directly at 718-699-8268 to schedule an appointment for an examination.

We offer Lumineers, which are a thinner version of dental veneers, as part of our comprehensive array of cosmetic services here at Family Dental Rego Park. Lumineers are made of the same quality porcelain sheets, though they are much thinner, therefore making the process faster and easier for our patients. We often have patients coming to us for multiple Lumineers and find they are very happy with their new smile.

Because Lumineers are so thin, less of the natural tooth needs reshaping or contouring. This is generally done to make room for the veneer, but with Lumineers, less tooth is lost for this process.

After preparing the tooth, the Lumineer is bonded to the tooth, where Dr. Binod Verma makes sure it looks flawless. He then polishes the surface of the Lumineer before sending the patient home.

On average, our Lumineers last about 15-20 years with the right care and maintenance. Patients are urged to take very good care of their oral health and reduce the risk of decay that might wear down their new Lumineers. Visit us in Elmhurst, NY for your new set of Lumineers.

Dental crowns are one of many restorative dentistry procedures we offer here at Family Dental Rego Park. Crowns have multiple purposes for our patients, including covering imperfections of the tooth, protecting a tooth weakened from tooth decay, and preventing cracking or breaking after a root canal. Crowns cover the tooth like a cap, and are made to look and function just like a regular tooth.

The procedure for dental crowns takes about 2-3 visits and includes the following:

Whether you have staining, need to save your natural tooth, or have other imperfections, crowns can be incredibly beneficial. If you live in the Elmhurst, NY area and are in need of a dental crown, schedule a consultation with Dr. Binod Verma today. We are welcoming new patients.
