Advanced Services Producing Amazing Smiles
Having a misaligned smile can result in both low self-esteem and poor health. When teeth are not straight or evenly spaced, it can make brushing harder, promote plaque build-up, and ultimately make it more difficult to keep your smile healthy.
Invisalign® has revolutionized the way our White Plains dentists align crooked and overcrowded teeth. The secret? Invisalign® is flexible, functional, and awesome! Unlike conventional braces, this clear aligning system is discreet, gentle, and hardly impacts your lifestyle. The aligners are almost invisible so noone will notice you are undergoing treatment and they are removable so you can eat and drink what you please.
More impressive though is the technology behind this service. Our experts use 3-D digital technology to take impressions of your teeth and bite. They use these impressions to plan out your ENTIRE course of treatment and show you the desired end result beforehand. The 3-D data is then used to create your series of clear aligners.
During the course of treatment, you receive a new set of aligners every two weeks. They are custom-made for your teeth and gradually move them into the ideal position over the course of about 12 months (varies for each patient).
This metal-free, wire-free option avoids goopy impressions, frequent dental visits, and an unsightly smile. Rather it provides a flexible and effective teeth-straightening solution.
Periodontal (gum) disease affects millions of Americans every year and can cause major dental issues including tooth loss. What’s more, research has shown that if left untreated gum disease can have a negative effect on your whole-health too. With periodontics in White Plains, NY, you can prevent any issues from occurring or stop it progressing further.
Our team of expert doctors are vastly experienced in safeguarding our patients’ teeth and gums. They work side-by-side with our hygienists to promote healthy habits and oversee professional cleanings. These are the two most effective way to prevent plaque and decay – the cause of gum disease. Regular hygiene visits are very important in the area of periodontics and should be a priority in your treatment plan.
However, occasionally, periodontal disease has already taken hold. Common symptoms include inflamed, sensitive, and bleeding gums. When this is the case, your caring specialists can remove plaque from around tooth pockets (where the tooth meets the gums) and provide a series of more in-depth cleanings. When this is not sufficient to restore health then a deeper clean is required through scaling and root planing. This cleaning goes below the gum line and removes any bacteria or infection.
Caring for your gums is essential in order to have a healthy smile, so please visit our periodontics team if you suffer from any symptoms.
Endodontics refers to the study and treatment of the interior and roots of your teeth. Our endodontist, Dr. Marsheh received a further two years of dental education to master root canal therapy. He uses his advanced knowledge and modern techniques to provide a more comfortable approach to this procedure – no more painful root canals!
You may require the assistance of our skilled endodontist if you have damaged the inside of your tooth through trauma or severe decay. However, on most occasions, you’ll visit our endodontist to receive a root canal. This procedure has been known to be painful in the past but with our modern technology, it can be performed with little discomfort.
Root canals are used to remove an infection from the inside of your tooth known as the pulp. This is where the nerves and soft tissue are housed. If the infection is not addressed, the tooth will be extremely painful, the infection can spread, and tooth loss can occur. Your gentle dentist in White Plains numbs the area and cleans out the infection. He then seals the tooth with a rubber-like material and protects it with either a crown or filling.
It is always our goal to save your natural tooth and restore your normal chewing function. Secondary, we want to make your smile looking natural and healthy. Our root canals can achieve both of these aims.
When there has been a lack of dental care, trauma, or severe decay, your tooth may need to be extracted. At the Dental Group of Westchester, we always strive to save your natural tooth but sometimes a removal is the best way to safeguard your oral health. A severely misaligned tooth (e.g. wisdom tooth) or infected tooth can lead to complications throughout your smile.
If an extraction is an ideal option then you can rest assured, you are in good hands. We have an in-office specialist who is able to extract your teeth pain-free and in one visit. We also offer conscious sedation for our more nervous patients and prioritize your comfort during this procedure.
Before the extraction, we clearly explain what is going to happen and plan around your individual needs. Our expert then cleans and numbs the area so you feel minimal discomfort and the tooth is exposed. After the extraction, we cover the area to avoid infection and keep it clean.
As a comprehensive dental office, we can provide teeth replacement options too. These include dental implants and bridges. Your dental expert will discuss this as part of your treatment plan prior to the extraction.

Need a new smile? We have an expert for that.
A missing tooth can cause many problems in your life such as reduced confidence in your smile and a series of potential oral health issues. If you do not address a missing tooth then your remaining teeth can begin to shift into the gap and cause misalignment or spacing. However, if you choose a dental implant you can restore balance to your teeth.
A dental implant consists of three parts. The first is the titanium post, which has been designed to mimic the missing tooth root. This post is inserted into the jawbone and is biocompatible so it can marry with the bone. The post is topped with an abutment (second part). This acts as a fastener for the crown or bridge that is the last piece of the puzzle (third). The restoration is custom-made to match your smile and restore natural tooth function.
Our White Plains dental office places implants on a case-by-case basis. In most cases, we are able to place a dental implant and top it with a custom-made crown. In addition, we can occasionally offer “Immediate Load Implants”, which allow us to place your restoration during the same appointment we insert the implant. This prevents the need for you to wear an uncomfortable appliance while your implant heals.
Implants are durable and promote long-lasting oral health by promoting bone growth and avoiding any teeth shifting.
Dental implants are not only used to replace a single tooth, they have the capacity to be a solid foundation for modern dentures. TeethXpress is a fast, effective, and long-lasting solution for those looking to permanently replace their missing teeth.
The basic principle for this form of implant-supported denture is that 4-6 implants are placed in the jawbone. Much like single implants, these fuse with your natural bone and mimic tooth roots. After this, the custom-made denture from our partner lab is placed on the abutments and held into place.
This style of denture prevents bone deterioration, avoids an uncomfortable fit, and provides a permanent solution to missing teeth.
