More information

Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom made to fit over teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth. They are custom made to the contour of your teeth and are bonded to the tooth's original enamel during a series of in-office procedures.

Dentures

Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and improve both your appearance and oral health. They can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. Dentures help maintain a healthy bite as well as prevent bone loss and gum disease.

The Dental Services We Provide at 1st Advantage Dental - Bethlehem

Professional Teeth Cleaning

We recommend that you visit us at 1st Advantage Dental - Bethlehem at least twice a year for a regular check-up and professional teeth cleaning. A professional teeth cleaning will remove plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing at home just can't handle. Professionally eliminating this build-up of plaque and tartar helps to prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and periodontal disease. The best dental care we can provide is preventative care. Regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning prevent small problems from becoming more complex and difficult to treat. Call 1st Advantage Dental - Bethlehem today at 518-439-3299 to begin the dental care regimen that saves you time, money, and stress.

Teeth Whitening

Over time, your teeth's natural whiteness can fade or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or simply getting older. However, the teeth whitening procedures we offer here at 1st Advantage Dental - Bethlehem can restore the brilliance of your smile. Depending on your needs and preferences, our dental team will help you choose whether to receive this treatment in our office or apply it yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home.

Corrective Dental Services

You may be unhappy about the spacing or misalignment of your teeth, but you would like to know more about the options available to you. We encourage you to call us at 518-439-3299 and talk to our friendly, highly trained staff about our corrective dental procedures -- from reliably effective and affordable metal braces to the latest innovative orthodontic methods like Invisalign®. Invisalign® is a wonderful option for working adults because it produces similar results to traditional metal braces, but utilizes a series of custom-made, clear aligners that are virtually invisible. You are able to maintain your professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious.

Restorative Dentistry

Regardless of how meticulous we are about our oral health care, unforeseen situations can result in damaged enamel, cavities, gum disease, or even bone loss. Whether the cause is physical trauma or untreated decay, 1st Advantage Dental - Bethlehem provides comprehensive dental service for all ages and we will work with you to find the dental treatment option that is perfectly suited to your individual oral health needs.

We want you to be well informed about your dental treatment options so that, in the event that you need a restorative dental procedure for damaged or lost teeth, you will be satisfied with your choice of crowns, a bridge, dental implants, or dentures. 1st Advantage Dental - Bethlehem is dedicated to providing the people of Delmar, New York with dental services that are effective, affordable, and convenient.

The unprecedented resolution capable with the iTero Element allows your hygienists and dentist to provide you with a higher quality of oral health care by identifying dental problems such as early decay or microscopic fractures in a fraction of the time required by old-fashioned methods.
