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 on The Better Show this week to help debunk some common medical and dental old wive's tales. One myth Dr. Finkel was asked about was the saying, "gain a child, lose a tooth." As Dr. Finkel explains, while the saying is false, there is some truth behind it -- 40% of pregnant women develop a temporary increase in gum inflammation known as "pregnancy gingivitis."

"Instead of unloading serious cash at the drugstore for whitening mouthwash, try three-percent hydrogen peroxide, which you'll find on drugstore shelves for around a dollar a bottle. While this will not whiten your teeth nearly as much as professional treatment, "rinsing with [it] can result in other benefits such as less bacteria buildup, less inflamed gums, and fresher breath,” says Dr. Sivan Finkel, of NYC’s Dental Parlour.
