You probably know that following good oral hygiene practices is critical for a healthy mouth. You might also know that a healthy mouth contributes to your overall wellbeing. But what about the social implications of a healthy smile? The results of a recent study might have you running to your cosmetic dentist for some shiny new porcelain veneers.
A national survey of 5,500 single adults revealed that 58% of men would judge a woman primarily based on her teeth. The study also indicated that 71% of women judge men based on their smiles. One man noted that a woman who takes good care of her teeth is likely to have good overall hygiene. A beautiful white smile can also reveal that you have other positive lifestyle habits, as dietary factors and tobacco usage are reflected in your smile. Even if you’ve had poor oral hygiene in the past, a cosmetic dentist can erase the effects of these habits and give you a beautiful new smile.
One popular cosmetic dentistry treatment is teeth whitening. In-office teeth whitening is best for those who wish to see a dramatic improvement in very little time. It is also the safest choice, because the dentist takes special measures to ensure that the gums do not become irritated. Typically, an in-office teeth whitening procedure will begin with a gentle pumice cleaning, followed by an application of hydrogen peroxide paste.
Cosmetic dentists can apply dental veneers to eliminate the appearance of discoloration. Veneers also cover up chips, cracks, and gaps, and misaligned teeth. Porcelain veneers are resistant to staining, and with the proper care, they can last for a lifetime.

Look at our patient's profile as featured in New Beauty Magazine - Spring/Summer 2013 edition:
"I hadn’t noticed the consequences of eight months of chemotherapy on my teeth until a friend brought it to my attention. My smile makeover restored my natural smile, which was important to me. My friends raved about how good I looked. It brought me and my smile back to life!"
New York cosmetic dentist Jason Kasarsky, DDS, first addressed the periodontal disease caused by eight months of chemotherapy. “Then
a splint of six porcelain-fused-to-gold crowns was used to link the front top six teeth. Lip support and appropriate tooth proportion were achieved,” Dr. Kasarsky explains. “Carole’s new smile allowed for good oral hygiene, tissue maintenance, and ultimately, longevity.”

Though visual examinations and x-rays can help dentists detect tooth decay, these methods are limited. For instance, they do not allow the dentist to locate decay inside the tooth. This is why the DIAGNOdent cavity detection system is so valuable. Its light probe can actually search inside teeth for signs of decay.
To watch a dentist using the DIAGNOdent system and to learn more about its benefits, watch this video. You’ll also learn exactly how the system works and why early detection of tooth decay is so important.
Dr. Jason Kasarsky, DDS offers cavity detection services and tooth-colored fillings, as well as sedation dentistry for patient comfort. Schedule an appointment at our New York City practice today by calling (646) 495-9483.

Bad breath, or halitosis, can be embarrassing and challenging to get rid of. Unfortunately, spending a fortune on breath mints only temporarily masks the problem. Bad breath is caused by the breakdown of food particles and the growth of bacteria in the mouth. To get rid of bad breath, you need more than your average toothpaste. Cosmetic dentists recommend BreathRx for long-lasting results. Talk to your cosmetic dentist about the BreathRx system, and read below to learn the basics:
The BreathRx system is effective because it attacks the source of bad breath, rather than just masking the symptom. By drastically reducing the bacteria in your mouth, you can enjoy fresh breath all day long. Its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties are clinically proven. The BreathRx system is also completely sugar-free and contains xylitol, which has been shown to help prevent gum disease. Dentists also recommend this mouth care system because it can help prevent the formation of cavities.
Begin your BreathRx routine with the specially formulated toothpaste, which targets trapped food particles to eliminate bad breath. It offers fluoride protection to prevent cavities, and also has a whitening effect on your teeth. Talk to your cosmetic dentist about proper brushing techniques.
Your dentist may have already discussed the importance of tongue scraping with you. Even if you’re diligent about brushing, your tongue can still harbor bacteria that contribute to bad breath. After brushing with the specially formulated toothpaste, use the BreathRx tongue scraper and spray to freshen your breath even more.
Finish your BreathRx care routine with the mouth rinse, which has been clinically proven to improve bad breath with continued use. The rinse washes away any lingering food particles and bacteria.
For more information on using the BreathRx system to combat bad breath, contact a cosmetic dentist. Dr. Jason Kasarsky, DDS offers the BreathRx system and many other services, including porcelain veneers, laser dentistry, and sedation dentistry. Contact our New York City practice at (646) 495-9483 to learn more.
