Sterilization, Infection Control and Your Safety

We pride ourselves in providing you state-of-the-art dentistry in a hygienically safe environment. All equipment and instruments that are used for your treatment are either sterilized or new (disposable). The surfaces in the treatment rooms are either wiped down with a medical grade disinfectant or wrapped in disposable barrier tape as applicable.

For your safety, in order to keep abreast of the latest developments, on September 13, 2013, my team and I attended a continuing education course on infection control and sterilization.

If you have any questions regarding this or any of our office procedures please don’t hesitate to ask.

Oral Cancer: The VELscope is Featured on Dr. OZ

The human papilloma virus (HPV) is now the fastest growing cause of oral cancer, particularly among young women. In the past, the typical oral cancer patient was an older man who was a heavy drinker and smoker. This is no longer the case.

The VELscope is an indispensable, non-invasive screening device for oral cancer. For your most optimum health, as a free service Dr. Levy routinely uses it during your regular examinations for those individuals 18 years of age and older. It was featured on the Dr. Oz show, Oral Cancer: The Scary Truth. This is a program no one should miss seeing. Here’s the link to that show: Oral Cancer The Scary Truth.

As a service to his patients, Merrick, Bellmore, Wantagh, Seaford and the surrounding communities, oral cancer screening is always without a charge. If you or anyone in  your family who would like a complimentary oral cancer screening, please give the office a call at 516-378-8600, to set up a convenient appointment. It takes just a few minutes and can save a life.

Check out the “VELsope” page of our website listed under the “Advanced Technology” pull down menu for further information on oral cancer.

Cosmetic Dentistry: A Confident Smile Can Change Someone’s Day

A genuine, happy, friendly smile is contagious. It’s the universal expression of contentment and well-being.

Some people are a little nervous about smiling. They don’t think their smile looks good, or they think that smiling makes them look unprofessional or vulnerable. No matter how professional, intelligent, or “together” you think a serious face makes you appear, people almost always respond better to a smile.

Infectious smiles start with confidence. If you don’t feel totally confident about your smile Dr. Steven Levy can help you. Dr. Levy is a Cosmetic Dentist. Our office offers a wide variety of services to help you look and feel your best.

A healthy, glowing smile starts with a gentle yet thorough cleaning. We also offer both in-office tooth whitening (bleaching) and take home whitening systems. Our in-office EZ White virtually eliminates the extreme sensitivity that may occur from the use of other whitening systems.

As a Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Steven Levy can offer you services ranging from beautiful tooth colored (white) fillings, to exquisite porcelain crowns, and veneers depending upon your needs.

While our first concern is keeping your teeth and mouth as healthy as possible, we have the state-of-the-art equipment, training and skills to make sure you have a beautiful smile that gives you confidence, and a smile that you’re excited to share with others.

Dr. Levy is more than happy to discuss with you the many options available to help you achieve a smile worth sharing and a smile that will change someone’s day –including your own. Please feel free to call us anytime to schedule an appointment.

Now Offering EZ White In-Office Whitening

We have been searching for years for an in-office tooth whitening system that is mild, yet very effective, and without the potential for significant sensitivity and discomfort following the whitening procedure. 

EZ White is activated by the same gentle light we use for cosmetic fillings and bondings. Because it works quickly it reduces the dehydration of your teeth and the resultant sensitivity that may occur with other in-office whitening techniques.

EZ White produces immediate results with teeth that are up to 8 shades lighter.

 SUMMER SPECIAL: FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST BRIGHTEN YOUR SMILE WITH EZ WHITE FOR $395

($100 OFF OUR REGULAR FEE OF $495)

For safe, effective results, it is recommended that tooth whitening be performed after a thorough cleaning.

Please feel free to call our office at 516-378-8600 if you have any questions regarding EZ White or any of our other professional services.

Have a great and safe summer!

All Porcelain/Ceramic

For those of you who have had the joy of extensive dental work, you are familiar with what a crown looks like. They are essentially caps that are placed over your teeth and are a sort of “last resort” for a tooth that has too much damage for a normal filling to fix. In your father’s day, technology was such that these special tooth caps had to be made of metal with a simple porcelain overlay to mimic the look of a normal and real tooth. But the metal underneath caused the crown’s look to worsen considerably over time.

Some of you may have this type of crown or have seen it in others. The aging of the crown can be seen even just while talking as metal is exposed at the gum line or in the way the color or stain of your crowned tooth just doesn’t match the rest.

But the dark ages are over and no one needs to know which of your teeth have crowns just by casting a glance. New technology is now available. Dr. Levy, a cosmetic dentist, can now offer you all porcelain/ceramic crowns. These crowns are inconspicuous among the rest of your teeth and give off a beautiful natural look.

If you are interested in cosmetic dentistry and  replacing your old crowns or are in need of crowns for the first time, speak with us to find out if all-porcelain/ceramic crowns can be a good fit.

Ah, a phrase with many meanings! However, in this instance, it’s in reference to your dental insurance benefits. It’s getting to be that time of year again to assess your dental needs in relation to the insurance benefits you have remaining for 2012. Use it or lose it. If you don’t take full advantage of your insurance allowance for this year, you will lose it. This will potentially result in more out-of-pocket expense for you in 2013.

This is especially important for those of you who haven’t seen us in the past year. You will be delighted to know that we have since renovated all our treatment rooms, sterilization area, laboratory and bathrooms, all this with your comfort in mind. This continues our tradition of providing our patients the best state-of-the-art dentistry in a relaxed and caring atmosphere.

My office will always do everything possible to maximize your insurance benefits. Please be sure to supply us with up-to-date insurance information and addresses to avoid delays in processing your claims.

In order for you to take full advantage of your dental insurance it is wise to call our office now, at 516-378-8600, to make an appointment. This will enable any treatment you may need to be completed during this calendar year.
