What to Do When Your Mouth Is Too Spooky for Halloween

dental services Woodside NYHalloween is just around the corner, and you may be ready to get out the pumpkins and decor, and head to the nearest haunted house. However, if you have a mouth full of teeth (or lack thereof) that are too spooky for Halloween, then you should get them fixed from one of our dentists at Woodside Dental.

Missing Teeth

If your mouth is particularly haunting because you have enough missing teeth to fill a cup, then there are several options to consider including dentures, dental implants, or a dental bridge.

  • Dentures: There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Depending on your particular oral condition, your dentist will help you determine which is the better option.
  • Dental Implants: Implants are the most permanent option you have. Dental implants involve implanting a metal device into your gums and then affixing a dental crown to the top— the combination of the two act as your tooth’s root and the tooth itself.
  • Dental Bridge: A dental bridge is a device that is affixed to your surrounding teeth and then has false teeth that are attached to it.

Discolored Teeth

Depending on how discolored your teeth are and the cause, our dentists will come up with a suitable treatment plan including options such as whitening or dental veneers.

  • Whitening: We offer both in-office and at-home whitening treatments to help patients get rid of surface level stains.
  • Veneers: If your teeth are severely stained and cannot be treated with a whitening agent, we may recommend that you get dental veneers. A porcelain dental veneer is an artificial tooth that is permanently glued to your natural tooth— giving you a whole new smile in the process.

If you feel like you’re wearing a Halloween costume all year long because of your teeth are less than perfect, schedule an appointment with Woodside Dental to learn more about your options.

We’re Here To Make You Smile

“Everyone in the office was incredibly kind and helpful during my visit today! I unexpectedly needed to get two fillings and the Doctor made it a priority to fit me into her already busy schedule and I didn’t even need to wait. Everyone from the hygenists to receptionist staff was kind and answered all my questions to make sure I was comfortable throughout my visit. I am so happy I found Woodside Dental Care, thank you!”

“Ok first of I wanna say thank you so much to Dr. Montes, she’s the only dentist ever I felt so comfortable going back too. Not only she does an amazing job but she also makes you feel comfortable and relax for any procedures that needed to be done. This place is nice and clean and the staff are awesome! To Carla thank you so much for explaining me everything and made me feel like I’m just talking to a friend instead of being a patient. Thank you guys again!!”

– Joyce

“Very caring and knowledgeable doctors and staff. They have a beautiful office and state of the art equipment. Unlike other general dental practices, they can do most procedures in house, so you don’t have to be sent to another office. Really nice people and they make you feel at home, and well taken care of! :)”

– Elizabeth

“It was a very refreshing experience to visit a dentist office that actually takes the time for each of their patients. Dr. Melvin Velasquez & his staff are amazing!
Today I got my second-time Zoom Whitening with Karla & Paola were awesome, they really did a great job & took care of me every minute during the process. I came out with a bright smile. This Dentist office is always extremely clean & they are up to date with their technology and equipment. Highly recommended.”
