Adults want the best technology, the most informed doctors & the highest-quality care, while kids want to be comfortable & respected. We offer the best of both worlds. Best of all, our dentists have extensive experience working with children & teens, so we can make the dental experience more enjoyable for everyone.
Ultra Low-Radiation Digital X-Rays
Williamsbridge Dental Care offers in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images that require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film-type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film, which must be developed & then fixed in caustic & environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor & instantaneously transmits a picture of the tooth onto the monitor in the treatment room so we can see your teeth & surrounding structures immediately.
CAT Scan 3-D Dental Imaging
Biting down on sticky impression goop & x-ray film is a thing of the past! With new digital scanning systems, we can use an optical scanner to generate a 3-D image of your teeth & surrounding structures. The process of making a digital scan of your mouth & jaw is much faster & more comfortable for the patient than the traditional process of impressions & x-rays—no more gagging! These digital scans are also more accurate, allowing us to create an incredibly precise treatment plan. With this state-of-the-art technology, we can treat your smile more quickly than ever before.
At Williamsbridge Dental Care, we believe that the overall health of our patients always comes first. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to only use new & advanced fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury. It’s just one more way that we show our patients how much we care. Your safety & smile are our primary concerns!
Preventive Dentistry is the area of dentistry concerned with preventing dental problems before they become costly or painful, or both. A large part of preventive dentistry is patient education. This includes learning the proper at-home dental care, nutrition, etc. Another aspect of preventive dentistry is oral hygiene through regular dental cleanings, fluoride treatments & more.
VELscope® Cancer Screening
When it comes to oral cancer, early detection leads to more treatment options & better outcomes. VELscope® is a revolutionary hand-held device that helps dentists & hygienists detect potentially cancerous tissue earlier & more easily than before. The VELscope® system works by emitting a safe blue light that makes tissues in your mouth appear fluorescent, revealing abnormalities that might not be visible to the naked eye. In fact, VELscope® is the only non-invasive device clinically proven to help discover otherwise undetectable signs of oral disease.
Drs. Perretta are certified in VELscope® technologies. Contact us today to schedule your oral cancer screening–it may change your life!
Healthy Gums Lead to a Healthy Body!
Periodontal (gum) disease can lead to more than just an unsightly smile—it can cause loss of teeth & eventually, if left untreated, other more serious health problems. Called gingivitis in its early stages, periodontal disease is caused by excessive toxic bacteria (found in plaque) that attack your mouth’s soft tissues. Early warning signs of this disease include red, swollen or bleeding gums. If caught early, we can help you reverse the damage. If detected late, we can use one of the many effective restorative dentistry procedures to restore your mouth to its healthy, beautiful state. Let the doctors at Williamsbridge Dental Care help you keep your teeth & gums strong & disease-free with regular examinations & cleanings.
We offer state-of-the-art restorative care. We know that even when you do everything right, something can go wrong. If you are suffering from a dental problem, we are here to help. Modern technology combined with the in-depth experience of our clinical team can assure you of a successful & long-lasting result. Whether the cause is an accident or disease, we can restore your smile.
Dental implants are man-made replacements for natural teeth. The implants themselves are artificial tooth roots anchored in the gum or jawbone, on which replacement teeth are permanently secured. Since implanted teeth are fixed in the mouth rather than being removable like dentures, they allow a return to the comfort & function of natural teeth. Increased chewing ability means you can enjoy more nutritious foods, contributing to your overall health & well-being. In short, dental implants improve the quality of your life. They can improve your appearance, boost your self-confidence & allow you to speak with greater clarity.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns cover & support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped as well, or to cover a dental implant. A crown can make your tooth stronger & improve its appearance. We fabricate our own crowns & bridges in our in-house dental laboratory, providing the most comfortable & esthetic results possible.
Having a great smile can make a huge difference in the way you look & feel. We offer a complete range of cosmetic treatments to create the confident smile you’ve always wanted. We begin with a detailed smile assessment, discussing with you which aspects you like & dislike about your smile. Once our assessment is complete, we will discuss with you treatment options to help your smile look more natural, healthy & youthful.
Invisalign® is the revolutionary way to help you get straight, even teeth without noticeable, painful metal braces. Virtually undetectable, Invisalign® aligners are made of strong, clear plastic that gradually guide your teeth into perfect alignment. Unlike metal braces, they have no wires or brackets. Tooth impressions are made, from which Invisalign® develops customized aligners that will slide directly over your teeth. Aligners are typically worn full-time (except when eating or drinking) for 12-48 months—no longer than you would wear traditional metal braces. Aligners are replaced every two weeks as your teeth shift into place.
