We offer a wide assortment of cosmetic dentistry services at our Brooklyn dental practice. Porcelain veneers are a highly effective way to conceal stains and other dental imperfections. Veneers are made of very thin pieces of porcelain, customized to match the hue and shape of your natural teeth. To prepare your teeth, Dr. Grannum will remove a very thin layer of enamel. Then he will gently etch the front of each treated tooth and attach the veneers using dental adhesive, which is hardened with a curing light. Veneers are extremely stain resistant and natural looking, reflecting light much like your own tooth enamel. Schedule a consultation at our practice today to learn more about whether porcelain veneers are right for you.See More
Our practice is pleased to offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening services, allowing you to choose the treatment that works best for your lifestyle and budget. During our one-hour in-office treatment, Dr. Grannum will apply whitening gel to your teeth, and activate it using a specially designed LED light. If you choose to whiten your teeth at home, you will receive custom trays used to hold a a whitening solution. You will be instructed to wear your whitening trays for several hours a day, usually for two to three weeks. Both options are safe and extremely effective, and allow you to brighten teeth up to eight shades.See More
Like many of our patients, you may have multiple cosmetic issues you wish to address. A smile makeover procedure allows you to design a customized treatment plan, combining one or more cosmetic services to create the smile of your dreams. To determine whether a smile makeover can help you achieve your aesthetic goals, you can undergo a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Grannum. During this visit, he will also examine your overall oral and periodontal health, and make recommendations for any necessary preparatory work. If you require reconstructive work, Dr. Grannum is a Board Certified Prosthodontist as well.See More
ClearCorrect™ is an innovative method of straightening teeth using customized aligner trays. These trays are created using advanced computer programming and the latest 3-D printers. Over the course of your treatment, you will wear a series of trays which gradually straighten your teeth and correct your bite. ClearCorrect™ aligners are nearly invisible, and do not become cloudy with wear. Because they are removable, you can still brush and floss like normal, and their smooth surface minimizes any discomfort during treatment.See More
We proudly embrace the latest technology to provide our patients with maximum precision and comfort. For this reason, we offer laser dentistry for a variety of procedures. Advanced diode lasers create a negligible amount of heat and actually cauterize tissue during use, resulting in less bleeding, minimal discomfort, and a shorter recovery time. One of the primary uses of laser technology is to perform gum lifts and contouring. If you have an excessively gummy smile, or uneven or receding gums, gum contouring can help you achieve a more attractive smile.
