“Like with plastic surgery, the best veneers are undetectable. ‘Bad ones look too opaque, too white, too smooth… they have all these characteristics that real teeth don’t have,’ says Dr. Finkel. ‘Good veneers have the texture, the translucency, and the irregularity of a real tooth.’ The problem is, those take a lot of time and skill to make — and most dentists don't have the training or patience for it.” Read the full article here: https://www.refinery29.com/veneers-teeth-trend
“I got veneers — and now I love to smile!” Read about one Allure beauty editor’s experience with Dr. Finkel, including the Digital Smile Design process and what you should know when considering veneers! https://www.allure.com/story/veneers-teeth-makeover-before-after-photos
Dr. Sivan was featured on Fox's "Chasing News" this week discussing the predictability and precision he achieves when designing a smile digitally. The Digital Smile Design workflow has already revolutionized dentistry in Europe and South America, and we are proud to be one of the first dental practices in America to offer this exciting technology to our patients. The Digital Smile Design process still depends on a dentist with an artistic eye and a human understanding of "beauty," but the computer can help pinpoint asymmetries, dominant facial landmarks, and how "off" each tooth is from ideal, resulting in a smile that is perfectly integrated with the overall face. Dr. Finkel not only uses this approach in everyday practice, he teaches this process to his students at NYU and various other dental groups.
Dr. Sivan spent some time with Kathie Lee and Hoda on the Today Show this past Monday, explaining why dental visits don't have to be scary OR painful. Watch the clip here! http://www.today.com/health/3-doctors-help-calm-people-scared-exams-t22781
Dr. Sivan Finkel appeared Iive on Good Day New York earlier this week, separating more medical and dental myths from facts. One topic he brought up was the surprising connection between chocolate and stronger teeth... Studies have shown that a compound in chocolate called Theobromide can actually protect our teeth from acid better than fluoride can, and helps enamel re-mineralize at a faster rate than fluoride.
