Extraordinarily Well

Don Smith

It is rare, literally, to be cared for by the people who wrote the book about anything. Bob Vila has never fixed my house. Martha Stewart never decorated my bathroom. Julia Child did cook something for me once, but that was for a TV show. Drs. Goldstein, Garber and Salama, not to mention hygienists, assistants and ceramists, have seen to all my matters dental for going on four decades. Ron Goldstein literally wrote the first book about esthetic dentistry, and he and his partners fly all over the world, teaching students and other dentists how to do what they do so extraordinarily well. There are simply no people any better at what they do than these guys, anywhere on earth- and that is straight from the patient’s mouth

About Me

Goldstein, Garber & Salama, LLC

Recognizing their educational and innovative clinical approaches to dentistry, Goldstein, Garber & Salama, LLC was featured as the cover story in the September 2014 issue of Dentistry Today—one of the most highly circulated dental periodicals for dental professionals in North America. 

Aesthetic Enhancement

To restore this patient’s aging smile, we used crown lengthening and all-ceramic crowns on the upper teeth, and Zoom!® Whitening and cosmetic contouring on the lower teeth.

Overall Achievement

This patient was unhappy with her dis­colored, eroded teeth and high lip line. She had cosmetic gum surgery with full crowns, which gave her the more attractive smile she was looking for.

Smile Makeover

We performed a smile makeover on this patient using tissue grafts, Invisalign®, in-office Opalescence® tooth whitening, veneers and crowns to lengthen and restore her teeth.

Creating Dream Smiles Across the Globe

Featured in more than 1,200 articles on the topics of beauty and dentistry over the years, Drs. Goldstein, Garber and Salama are recognized throughout the world as cutting-edge dentists who create dream smiles. The doctors have been regulars in the spotlight, sharing their advanced knowledge on a host of print and television outlets including CNN, CBS, ABC 20/20, NBC and The New York Times. Dr. Goldstein’s book, Change Your Smile, offers this tip to those considering cosmetic dentistry: “You should look at your smile and ask, ‘Is this the best my smile can be?’ Because if it isn’t, then you may not be getting the most out of life.” 

Wellness Dentistry

Goldstein, Garber and Salama, LLC now offers three new health based procedures, including a nonsurgical dental laser. This laser was specifically designed to treat gum disease without cutting or stitching the gums, making the procedure nearly painless and significantly diminishing recovery time.

FAQ's

Q. How much can tooth contouring change my smile?

What our experts say:

Dr. Ronald E. Goldstein says: Tooth contouring or ‘cosmetic contouring’ as it is know in the profession, can be a great compromise for mildly crowded, chipped or over-erupted teeth in creating an illusion of straightness. It’s best to choose a dentist who is a good artist and has experience in cosmetic dentistry so he or she can show you what your teeth can look like cosmetically contoured and then deliver the results.

Q. Can a gum lift erase my gummy smile and how much will it hurt?

What our experts say:

Dr. Maurice Salama says: Yes, gum surgery can be performed easily today utilizing lasers and ultrasonic instrumentation. This can often be performed using a minimally invasive procedure (MIP), which is not painful and heals much faster.

Q. With a porcelain crown, does the color stay forever?

What our experts say:

Dr. David Garber says: The essential color of the porcelain crown should stay forever. However, some of the added superficial stain may slowly abrade away.

Q. What’s the best type of crown?

What our experts say:

Dr. David Garber says: The best type of crown really depends upon your specific needs. Gold crowns in the back of the mouth where no one sees them require less tooth removal or preparation, keeping your tooth considerably stronger. Today the new all zirconium crowns can do very much the same and in a tooth colored material. However, if you need optimum esthetics particularly in the front of the mouth, the all-ceramic crown, such as the lithium disilicate reinforced ones, provide for a more attractive match or blended outcome. Last, porcelain fused to metal crowns are time tested so work well, but are generally not as natural looking as all-ceramic crowns.

Q. What is the difference between a home teeth whitening kit and one provided by a dentist?

What our experts say:

Dr. David Garber says: The predominant difference between the home teeth whitening kit and the one provided by the dentist is the strength of the active ingredient in the bleaching product and, most importantly, the personal monitoring of the patient for any problems that might arise in the tissue or the underlying teeth.

Q. Why can’t everyone get lumineers or no-prep veneers?

What our experts say:

Dr. David Garber says: Everyone with intact non-compromised teeth can essentially get lumineers or no-prep veneers, but they are, in many situations, more problematic. It is more important to develop a small well-defined margin for the veneer on the tooth, so that when in the mouth there is a smooth transition from the remaining natural tooth to the veneer. “No-prep veneers” can be more complex than a minimally invasive roughening of the tooth surface confined to only the enamel.

Q. How can a smile makeover help me look younger?

What our experts say:

Dr. Ronald E. Goldstein says: If your teeth are worn, discolored, or otherwise aging you, a smile makeover can help give your face the appearance of a facelift without the surgery. By creating a younger-looking smile line you can easily look 10 to 15 years younger.  A lighter color makes a big difference as well as varying the lengths of the teeth to get rid of a worn straight across look that many older people have. And healthy-looking gum tissue also plays a major role in creating a younger look. Try to get rid of any open spaces or black triangles between your teeth if your gum has receded.

Q. Can you get a cavity in a crown?

What our experts say:

Dr. Ronald E. Goldstein says: You can get a cavity underneath a crown if the decay is left in the underlying tooth structure when the crown was placed.  However, most areas of decay in crowned teeth occur at the gum line due either to a washout of the cement used to fasten the crown to the tooth, or to decay in the root of the tooth below where the crown is attached.

Q. Can a bad bite cause chronic headaches and migraines? Can a smile makeover fix it?

What our experts say:

Dr. Maurice Salama says: A bad bite has been reported to cause chronic headaches and may even precipitate the migraine process. The problem is how the dentist defines what characterizes a bad bite. [It can be treated.] Most importantly, if a single tooth hits prematurely when you close, this should be adjusted or if your back teeth do not separate when you move your lower jaw forward or side to side, as in chewing or biting a sandwich, this may be a potential cause or factor.

Q. I've read about one-day smile makeovers. Is there really a such thing and what does it entail?

What our experts say:

There certainly is. One day makeovers can consist of:

  1. Cosmetic contouring, or reshaping crowded teeth to create an illusion of straightness.
  2. Composite resin bonding to change the shapes of teeth, cover discolored teeth, close spaces, or repair chipped or fractured teeth.
  3. Porcelain veneers to accomplish the above but would usually take 2 appointments since they would be made indirectly by a laboratory.  However, there are porcelain veneers that can be made from CAD/CAM porcelain blocks that possibily could be made in a day depending on how many are required.

The main thing is to have a good consultation with a talented cosmetic dentist who will create a smile design and let you know the choices because there will almost always be different methods and you need to have all the information so you can make the right decision.

Q. I have staining on one of my front teeth. Is there anything I can do to try to correct this problem at home? I would really love to not have to have my teeth whitened in a dentists office due to fear of sensitivity.

What our experts say:

Depending on the type and severity of the stain you may be able to make a nice difference by bleaching at home.  It may well take more time but it can result in lighter teeth.  However, if your teeth have concentrated stains on part of the teeth it would be better to consult a cosmetic dentist to see if a technique called ‘micro-abrasion’ could be used.  This technique consists of the dentist painlessly polishing your teeth with a concentrated acid and can also be combined with bleaching depending on the stain.  Reshaping of the enamel may also be required and at times bonding the enamel after the dentist physically removes the stain with diamond burs.

Q. Grinding and it's effects

What our experts say:

You need to have a consultation with another dentist who may be more skilled at temporomandibular joint disfunction.  It could be the type of bite guard you are wearing because there are a number of different approaches to the problem and different designs for the appliance.  You may also be clenching or grinding during the day (subconsciously) and totally unaware you are doing it.  The rule I give my patients is “Lips together, teeth apart” and I have them make signs in their car, on their desk and at home wherever they are so it is a constant reminder not to have their teeth touch unless they are eating.  If you find your teeth are together at anytime day or night, you are clenching and may be causing the muscles to go into spasm.  At times I even have to make “day appliances” for patients who cannot stop on their own.

Q. my bite deep jet overbite what tricks could I use to redo front teeth

What our experts say:

The best treatment for a very deep overbite or over jet where the teeth stick out too far is orthodontic treatment. This could consist of an invisible technique called Invisalign where you would wear a series of clear plastic matrices over a period of 8, 16, or 20 months to correct the condition.  Most people will not know you are wearing them.  In severe cases porcelain brackets can be applied to your teeth to reposition them.  The main requirement is to have a thorough diagnosis of the cause and treatment plan for the choices of correction.  Finally, there are instances whereby restorative means can be utilized such as porcelain onlays or crowns can be constructed to ‘open’ your bite and reduce the amount of the overbite.  In addition the teeth can be reshaped and a more normal arrangement can improve the smile and the bite.  Again, get a consultation with a very experienced dentist and orthodontist to help you determine the best approach for you.

Q. Are there foods to avoid when whitening the teeth?

What our experts say:

Good answer from Dr. Sadati, and I would just liike to add that I advise my patients to avoid eating blueberries, and suspend drinking coffee, tea, cola drinks and those that have strong pigments.

Q. What is the best way to get rid of discoloration of the teeth?

What our experts say:

There are also techniques that can remove individual stains such as microabrasion and cosmetic contouring.  these can be dark yellow or even white spots on teeth.
