Corona Dental Office

What can you expect when you schedule an appointment to come and see our dentist in Corona? Here at Blash Dentistry, we are here to help you and your entire family including your children. Prevention is our highest goal. That's why we build our list of services around a recommended twice-yearly examination that includes an oral cancer screening. You will also get periodic x-rays, a periodontal evaluation, an analysis of your bite, and a visual and physical inspection of your teeth, restorations, fillings, and supporting structures. In addition, a teeth cleaning will eradicate any remaining plaque and tartar in your mouth, both of which are the primary culprits in both tooth decay and gum disease.

The Corona neighborhood of Queens, which is bordered by Flushing, Jackson Heights, Forest Hills, Rego Park, Elmhurst, and East Elmhurst, is home to the New York Mets baseball team since 2009. It is adjacent to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, which is one of the largest parks in all of New York City, and hosted the World's Fair in both 1939 and 1964. Among its most famous current and former residents are director of Goodfellas, Martin Scorsese, rappers Kid 'n Play former Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, and cosmetics giant Estée Lauder (source: Wikipedia).

Any cavities detected will be filled with either amalgam (metal), porcelain, composite, or gold, depending on the location of the tooth and your personal preferences. Crowns (also called caps) are ideal for strengthening and protecting teeth that have become weakened or exposed do to tooth decay, cracks, or chips. They are also used cosmetically to cover teeth that are crooked, misshapen, or discolored. Speaking of cosmetic work, our dentist in Corona also provides veneers, which are thin shells used to cover the fronts of your teeth and give you an enhanced appearance. Teeth whitening services are also available, either in our office or a take-home version for your convenience.

If you end up with an infection in the pulp of your tooth, our dentist in Corona can perform root canal, using advanced tools and methods to make it a much smoother and more comfortable procedure than was true in the past. If you're missing one or more teeth, you can decide from among bridges, dentures, and implants for replacing them. This is important to take care of because the remaining teeth on a jaw that has a missing tooth can start to shift and leave you with misaligned teeth and possibly jaws that don't sync up. Which brings us to clear braces. If you need orthodontic treatment, don't think you're automatically resigned to metal braces. We have choices that provide you with all the benefits but with the aesthetic advantage of not being seen, as well as being more comfortable to wear.
