How porcelain veneers can make you smile again
You smile in the mirror and don’t like what you see. Your teeth are broken and cracked, and starting to yellow and stain from aging and coffee. Porcelain veneers can make you like your smile again! They are the high-tech treatment to fix many cosmetic dental issues in your front teeth. Dr. Allan Goldfarb of Marlboro Foot and Dental Wellness in Marlboro, New Jersey and Brookyln, New York, wants to help you discover why porcelain veneers are right for you.
Porcelain veneers are a versatile, strong dental restorative treatment. They are thin sheaths of sparkling porcelain, color-matched perfectly by Dr. Goldfarb to create a naturally beautiful smile. We want you to know porcelain veneers are right for you if you would like to correct teeth that are:
- Damaged and broken from trauma or injury
- Cracked, chipped and worn from aging
- Spaced apart from genetics
- Badly discolored from smoking, coffee or medications like tetracycline
- Slightly overlapped and crowded
Porcelain veneers are a conservative treatment because Dr. Goldfarb removes very little tooth structure, just enough to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. At your first appointment, we lightly prepare your teeth for dental veneers and then make molds of your teeth. These molds are sent off to a dental laboratory where highly skilled dental technicians custom-make your new veneers.
At your second appointment at our office in Marlboro, New Jersey or Brookyln, New York, we cement your sparkling, beautiful porcelain veneers in place. You are now the proud owner of a dazzling smile! Your porcelain veneers should last for years with proper care. They also don’t pick up stains the way your normal teeth do. This makes them a great choice for smokers and coffee drinkers.
Porcelain veneers are right for you for many reasons. It’s time for you to have the perfect smile you’ve always wanted, and it’s just a phone call away. It’s time to call Dr. Goldfarb, your dentist at Marlboro Foot and Dental Wellness in Marlboro, New Jersey or Brookyln, New York. Call us today and find out more about the magic of porcelain veneers!
I Think I Have Toenail Fungus; What Should I Do? Treatment options for toenail fungus.
You think you might have toenail fungus because your toenail is dark and starting to crumble. It looks a lot thicker than the toenails around it. It really looks ugly and summer is coming; you want to wear sandals! Plus it’s starting to hurt a little. You’re wondering if you can do anything about it. The answer is YES, and your podiatrist Dr Corinne Kauderer of Marlboro Foot & Dental Wellness in Marlboro, New Jersey wants you to know what to do for toenail fungus.
Toenail fungus is also called onychomycosis and usually starts with a yellow or white spot under your toenail that gets bigger and goes deeper into your nail. Because fungi don’t need sunlight, they live in warm, wet surroundings like showers and swimming pools. Fungi get between your nail and nail bed and multiply there, causing irritation, pain and changes to your toenail.
According to the Mayo Clinic, there are some things you can try at home for toenail fungus, such as:
- Trimming and thinning your toenails, to reduce pressure on your nails
- Applying over-the-counter antifungal creams
- Applying Vicks VapoRub daily to your toe and underneath the nail
If you’ve tried home remedies and are still bothered with toenail fungus, it might be time to see your podiatrist Dr Corinne Kauderer of Marlboro Foot & Dental Wellness. The professional treatments for toenail fungus include prescribing:
- Oral antifungal medication to help you grow a new non-infected nail
- Medicated nail cream or nail polish to treat the underlying fungus
In some severe cases, other treatment may be indicated including surgically removing the infected nail and laser or light therapy. If you are afflicted with painful, ugly nail fungus, don’t suffer! Stop in and see your podiatrist Dr Corinne Kauderer of Marlboro Foot & Dental Wellness in Marlboro, New Jersey. Call 732-414-1150 and get ready to wear your sandals this summer! Or contact our other location at 7713 13th Ave Brooklyn, NY 11228 (718) 232-2100.
Find out if dental implants are the right treatment for your tooth loss.
Tooth loss treatments have certainly come a long way over the years. Patients can now receive treatments from their Marlboro dentist Dr. Alan Goldfarb that offer them the same look and feel of real teeth. If dentures or dental bridges just don’t seem like the ideal choice for you, then it’s time for you to look into dental implants.
Factors that Influence Your Implant Treatment
If you’ve lost a tooth or multiple teeth then naturally it might seem like dental implants would be a perfect option for you. But this isn’t always the case. That’s why it’s important that you see your Marlboro, NJ dentist for a consultation to ensure that implants will meet your smile goals. Here are some of the things we have to consider to make sure that you are right for this treatment:
This is a major factor that needs to be addressed. Not only should you have a healthy, disease-free mouth before opting for implants, but you also must be in good overall health. Those dealing with uncontrolled chronic diseases like diabetes or heart disease, as well as those with compromised immune systems, may experience more discomfort and have a prolonged healing process.
If you are a smoker who isn’t planning on quitting before getting implants, then this treatment will most likely not be for you. Implant failure is particularly high in those who smoke, while those who don’t smoke will find that dental implants have a very high success rate. Furthermore, smoking also impedes the healing process, so those who opt for implants may have to go through longer post-surgical recovery times than non-smokers.
While adults of all ages can be considered good candidates for implants, this doesn’t hold true for children and teens, since they are still developing. No dentist will place an implant until we know that the jawbone has fully matured. But there are other options available for children and teens who are looking to replace a missing permanent tooth.
These are only some of the factors we look at before determining whether implants are the right course of action. But the only way to find out for sure if implants are right for you is to be evaluated. Call Marlboro Advanced Foot & Dental Wellness today!
Heel pain can be a frustrating condition. It affects everyday activities as necessary as walking, and can decrease your quality of life quickly. Most heel pain goes away on its own after a short amount of time. However, it may be a symptom of a greater condition. Thankfully, your Marlboro, NJ podiatrist can help you determine why you have heel pain and help you find relief.
What causes heel pain?
Heel pain can be caused by many different conditions. Some common causes are:
- Achilles tendonitis
- heel spur
- plantar fasciitis
- rheumatoid arthritis
- stress fracture
How can I treat heel pain at home?
Sometimes, heel pain is from normal wear and tear. In this case, at-home care may be beneficial. Avoid activities that put unnecessary pressure on your heel. Be sure to rest your feet by staying off of them as much as possible. Ice packs can provide relief and bring down minor swelling. Try icing your heel three times a day for about 15 minutes at a time. Over-the-counter pain medications like ibuprofen or acetaminophen may also relieve pain. Stretching is also important, and another at home step you can try is rolling your foot on a tennis ball.
When to Seek Medical Attention
If your pain lasts longer than several weeks or if you feel pain without any activity, you should schedule an appointment with your doctor. If your heel pain is accompanied by severe swelling or intense pain, you should see your doctor immediately. Heel pain paired with fever or numbness could be signs of a more severe condition. In this case, you should be examined as soon as possible. Your doctor can help you determine the cause of your heel pain. Together, you can find the best treatment plan for your situation. One option we offer is a no injection EPAT treatment which uses acoustic vibration technology.
If you have questions about heel pain, please contact Marlboro Foot and Dental Wellness-Dr Corinne Kauderer. Call (732) 414-1150 to schedule your appointment today!
