Philosophy

Recently Dr. Jason Kasarsky was asked to contribute to a book about the secrets regarding professional and personal success of leading dentists.

About My Practice:

What's the most important thing you've learned from patients?

Patients respect you when you are honest and truthful. Deliver all of the news, even the tough-to-hear messages.

What qualities make a dentist successful?

In order to be successful, a dentist needs to have superior listening skills, compassion in the trenches, and the ability to maintain levity. I believe all successful individuals have the desire to succeed and push the envelope. You need to be open to paradigms and do your homework.

In what ways is dentistry like art?

Cosmetic dentistry is a true art form because I create sculptures that resemble teeth. I scrutinize their shape, color and form, and look at subtle shading to enhance skin tone and the sizing that works with facial characteristics.

About Me:

Why did you become a cosmetic dentist?

My grandfather was a physician and although I revered him, I didn't necessarily want to follow in his footsteps. I loved working with my hands. I was intrigued by the disciplines of dentistry.

In what ways are you a leader?

I am a visiting faculty member of the prestigious Spear Education Program in Scottsdale, Arizona, which offers a range of workshops, seminars and live patient courses to help dentists continue their education and fuel their passion for knowledge.

Testimonials

Alleviating Dental Fear

Tate, Age 42

"I suffered from a broken tooth and my crowns were 10 years old, but I had a true fear of the dentist. Dr. Kasarsky and his warm staff spent time speaking with me about my options and we ultimately decided upon sedation dentistry, in which Dr. K is a specialist. The sedation was really helpful, enabling Dr. K to insert my new porcelain veneers and crowns. Dr. K is understanding, committed and skilled with an aesthetic eye—I highly recommend him."

Personality that makes you feel well taken care of.

Marian

Jason Kasarsky has a personality that makes you feel well taken care of. His office equipment reflects a dentist that keeps up with the newest technology. He takes time off, to go to seminars, to be up to date with any new discoveries, in his field. He also has a wonderful ability to choose a staff, for whatever position, that are knowledgeable.

Annie

I was completely impressed with the incredibly efficient, friendly, and competent staff from the front desk to the exam room. Thank you Dr. Kasarsky for making a dental office visit so enjoyable!

Since 1982

Steve

Have been with Dr. Kasarsky since 1982. Caring, intelligent & communicative dental treatment and prevention. Wonderful dental hygienist Marissa. Friendly & cooperative office staff.

Staff very attentive and well trained.

Michael

Always great service. Quick appointment was available for a recent unanticipated issue. The practice doesn't seem to overbook and therefore never had to wait more than a minute a two past my appointment. Staff very attentive and well trained. Dr. Kasarsky always does complete and comprehensive work with a view towards the longer term.

Patient Anonymous

I chose Dr. Kasarsky after viewing numerous websites. I was tired of 58 years of "British Teeth" which, while presentable, were a little uneven, a bit discolored and couldn't be improved with whitening solutions. I am among the most dentist-phobic people on earth, but it was a reviewer who said he flew from Los Angeles to see Dr. Kasarsky that led me to finally take the plunge and sign up for "American Teeth" - the ones you see on TV anchors. Dr. K is very experienced in this area (and I found out later has worked on TV people). From the very first visit I knew that he was going to do great work. He is friendly and approachable and deeply expert as a cosmetic dentist. He told me what would work and what wouldn't. It all took 3 visits and he fitted 8 veneers on my top teeth (which are the ones you see when I smile). Outstanding experience. I look younger - hey I could be on TV now! I feel much more confident. This is an investment, look better and you get paid more - for longer. You can always find someone who will do this "for less" - I can only say that kind of thinking makes no sense to me. You want THE BEST, because veneers last 10-15 years so unless you're a pensioner you will be doing this AGAIN so it just makes sense to go top of the line. Dr. Kasarsky is top of the line. And I would add that his staff are superior and friendly and just terrific. His office is in midtown Manhattan.

About Me

Great Lengths

Unhappy with what she described as “short, yellow, ugly teeth,” the 39-year-old patient shown here wanted to lengthen her teeth to show more of them when she smiled. “By using crowns, onlays and veneers, we were able to give her the smile of her dreams,” Dr. Kasarsky says. 

Total Smile Transformation

Unhappy with her teeth that she described as “dark, broken and ugly,” this 72-year-old patient sought Dr. Kasarsky for Biolase® laser tooth whitening, bonding and crowns. “The patient says that her new smile brought her back to life and that her friends rave about how good she looks,” says Dr. Kasarsky. 

Laser-Assisted Dentistry

I became fascinated with lasers 14 years ago when ophthalmologists started doing laser vision correction. I knew it would just be a matter of time before we started applying laser science to dentistry. Dr. Kasarsky's office was one of the first in Manhattan to use an extensive variety of lasers in daily practice. I use different lasers for the full spectrum of dental treatment periodontal care, cavities, laser tooth whitening, cosmetic gum sculpting and implant work, he says. Whitening is performed with a Diode Laser. The laser emitted is concentrated and bleaches the tooth while virtually no heat is produced. The laser to clean out cavities uses mini explosions of water molecules by laser energy. Decay is cleaned out, the area is sterilized, and I use the laser to anesthetize the tooth without an injection. Laser care utilizes fluorescent laser technology to find and diagnose unseen and improbable decay.

FAQ's

Q. How are porcelain veneers used to enhance a smile?

What our experts say:

They are used in many different ways.  If teeth can’t be bleached to achieve the color you want, you can cover the tooth structure with porcelain. Chips, cracks and fractures can also be covered with porcelain; and we can change the shape of a tooth with porcelain, or repair it with pieces that are missing.  Another thing we can do is change the length of the teeth or provide “quick orthodontics.” So, if you don’t want to spend a year moving your teeth around, we can use the “art of illusion” to create a beautiful esthetic smile in two to three visits. We can also add bulk to the teeth with porcelain. If the side teeth are placed narrowly when the patient smiles, and there is negative space between the corners of their lips and their teeth in the back, we can fill in that space by building out bulk, which broadens their smile. In other words, we have to look at the mouth as a stage. The lips become curtains and the teeth become players.  There are still players in the back of the stage and people still notice them; and in the mouth, they notice them even more if you change the front teeth but not the ones in the back.

Q. What are the benefits of tooth-colored fillings? What is the filling made out of?

What our experts say:

One benefit is there’s no mercury, which is a known carcinogen.  Another benefit is when tooth-colored fillings are placed with adhesives (when using adhesive dentistry), we are not using undercuts to help retain the filling; so the preparation into the good, solid tooth structure is minimal or conservative. The adhesives, or glue, help hold the filling material, and that filling material can contain fluoride, and can mimic the natural beauty of the tooth structure by blending various colors of composite. The composite is kind of like a “space-age plastic,” that is healthier and more conservative than the silver that was used in the past. On a microscopic level, the tooth structure looks like the Rocky Mountains. The composite flows into the “Rocky Mountains” and is then cured (or set) with a bonding light. It sets it into the “nooks and crannies” of the “Rocky Mountains” and that’s what holds it in place.  Another advantage to using tooth-colored fillings is that they can be highly polished and, if it’s done well, the structure of the tooth can be indistinguishable from the filling material.

Q. What type of whitening treatment is most effective?

What our experts say:

The bottom line is they all work.  You can’t say one is better than the other, some are more expensive, some take more treatments to work and some may work better for some than for others. It’s really a dollars and sense and length of time issue. There are strictly take-home whitening systems, where we make a set of trays for you, and you put a whitening gel into the trays with instructions to use at home. In-office whitening is usually a gel that goes on the tooth and is activated with a light, such as Zoom, that produces light and a little bit of heat.  Another in-office treatment is laser whitening. It uses laser energy to activate the whitening gel. I use a laser because it produces far less heat than any other light source, and it works quicker.  In-office treatments will get teeth whiter faster than take-home treatments. 

Q. What are dental implants and when are they used?

What our experts say:

We use implants when somebody is missing a tooth, or if they have a broken tooth extracted and it can’t be saved. A single implant fixes a one-tooth problem with a one-tooth solution. If you have a space, we can put an implant into that space and put a crown on top of it; as opposed to having a space, and having to grind down the tooth in front and behind the space and then making a bridge to bridge the gap. That way uses three teeth to solve a one-tooth problem. Other times, implants are used if someone is missing many teeth. An implant equals the root that used to be there. On top of the implants, we can put teeth (fabricated crowns) that stay in the mouth.  So instead of removable piece like dentures, the teeth stay there. They can be cemented into place, or we can use tiny titanium screws into healthy jaw bone that hold them into place. The patient still has to clean them and go to the hygienist for cleanings.  They can still get periodontal disease, but they don’t decay. 

Q. How do you fix a “gummy smile”?

What our experts say:

There are different ways. If there is excess gum in a healthy tooth (not a periodontally involved tooth), we can use a laser and remove the excess tissue.  (Some dentists use a scalpel, but I use a laser.)  Or, we can move the teeth, if the teeth are too far down in the front and the lip is high, (retrusion). If we push the teeth up, the gum goes with it.  If the tooth is periodontally involved, we sometimes need to cut the gum structure, and sometimes the bone has to be cut as well to improve a gummy smile. We can also lower the lip, if it is too high, by a surgical procedure to bring the lip down, so it will cover the gums. With all the options, we have to look at the individual; there is no one procedure that fits all patients.

Q. How are stem cells used in dentistry?

What our experts say:

This is an area where the research is taking off, it’s quite amazing. There are instances when we can bank baby teeth, and wisdom teeth that are being extracted, and freeze them; so later on in life, if someone is missing a tooth, we can use the stem cells from the tissue of the tooth or gum banked, and use it to grow new gum tissue or tooth structure.  So we are extracting baby teeth and freezing them so we can use that tissue later on in life. If someone is in accident, or if a child does not have an adult bud in a spot in their mouth, we can grow another tooth there.

Q. How do you help beautify patients?

What our experts say:

Matching the personality of the patient with the look of the smile is a step beyond what we are given at birth. 

Q. A little over a year ago, I started grinding my teeth. Once you begin grinding, is there anyway to actually stop? I have a mouth guard but I find that I'm clenching just as bad, if not worse when I'm wearing the guard.

What our experts say:

If the cause of the grinding is directly related to  an incorrect bite, then you have to address the dental concern that is causing the incorrect bite. Poor fitting dental work, bad joint, loose teeth, shifting teeth are some of the dental concerns that may cause one to grind.  If grinding is stemming from STRESS, then the smart way to diminish or stop grinding is to deal with what is causing the stress.  Seek counseling, increase exercise, cut caffeine, cut alcohol.  You mentioned that when you are wearing your mouth guard, your clenching may be worse.  There is a percentage of people who wear soft guards. They feel as if they need to continually bite through the guard. Clenching does not cease.  If you wear a hard guard, you may need the guard to be thicker. The increased height may shut down the muscle activity. One more tidbit to keep in mind. Not only are there nocturnal grinders and clenchers, there can be daytime activity as well.  If you are “confident” that stress is the culprit, start looking for answers there.

Q. What is facial treatment planning and how does it relate to dentistry?

What our experts say:

Facially generated treatment planning provides me with the building block to have teeth support the cheeks and lips, lifting the lower face without a scalpel.

Q. If I got Invisalign, how often do I need new trays?

What our experts say:

New trays are given about every 3 weeks.  The total amount of trays needed depends on how much movement of the teeth is necessary; but it is usually is somewhere around 14 to 18 trays. 

Q. Do at-home whitening strips work?

What our experts say:

On some people they work well and on some they don’t. Whitening works best on yellow or orangey teeth. It’s very difficult to whiten dark gray and brown teeth. It can be done, but it takes more time and effort.

Q. Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

What our experts say:

Men and women who have crowded top anterior (front) or bottom teeth, or teeth that are a little angled (leaning forward or back towards the palate) or displaced. It works well with moderate to minor tooth movement. It can work well for major tooth movement, but that’s usually done in combination with wires, as opposed to just with trays. It can also be used for teeth that have gum lines that are not harmonious from right to left (such as if the gum is up higher on one tooth). We can move the teeth and the gum will move along with the tooth; however, there are times where gum surgery is required instead. 

Q. How long does Invisalign take to correct my teeth?

What our experts say:

The average time is a year, or somewhere between 9 and 18 months.

Q. What is the difference between bonding and veneers? What do they correct? When should each be used?

What our experts say:

A veneer is a front facing, like a cabinet door; it covers the whole front of the tooth. Some people will say they don’t want to have veneers placed because they don’t want to have their actual teeth cut back (we have to cut back a little of the front tooth if we are changing color and shape); but we can do the same thing with bonding material. There is a technique used called a no-prep veneer, which is an ultra-thin veneer made with porcelain that we can use. Porcelain lasts longer and doesn’t stain. Some composites will break down over time and stains can get imbedded into the composite.  Usually we don’t cover the entire tooth surface with bonding, but it can be done, if that is what the patient wants. 

Q. Do whitening treatments cause tooth sensitivity?

What our experts say:

Prior to using any whitening system (including whitening strips), you need to be checked by a dental professional for any issues needed to be addressed with the teeth. If whitening gel gets inside the tooth and the patient doesn’t know, then there it can lead to sensitivity. When you whiten in-office, there are various desensitizing liquids that we paint on the tooth structure, so there is minimal post-op sensitivity. If done incorrectly, there can be a lot of post-op sensitivity, but most of the time its transient (it goes away over the first 12 hours).  However, if you have cracks or little fissures in your teeth, you can create problems along the way and later on.  Whitening centers won’t tell you that.  Their mission is to whiten the teeth and make a profit. 

Q. What are crowns and when are they used? Do you need to alter my natural teeth?

What our experts say:

When a tooth is broken down to the point where we now need to cover the entire tooth because there isn’t healthy ample tooth structure, we use a crown. Basically, if there is enough decay or fracture, or if a piece of old filling is broken off and there is decay underneath.  We have to remove the decay and build the tooth back up.  With a crown we are covering the tooth 360 degrees, or full-coverage. There are other times when we use crown for complex prosthetic cases, to fix sophisticated bites.

Q. What is dental recontouring?

What our experts say:

It can be used in different ways, but most of the time it’s used to recontour the tooth structure. If you look at a smile and some of the teeth, and one to four are not in perfect alignment, we can gently recontour  the enamel, and then polish it to get the desired contour, shape and length that we want without having to use Invisalign. So we can add structure with bonding, but we can also take structure away by recontouring.  It works very well. It’s using the “art of illusion” in the hands of someone who knows what they are doing. Less is best: A little bit of recontouring goes a long way in making a big difference.

Q. How are lasers used in dentistry?

What our experts say:

There are different types of lasers that do different things.  Diode lasers are used on soft tissue only. Sometimes we use it to contour gum tissue, to help get rid of periodontal pockets, to take away gum tissue where there is excess growing over a wisdom tooth; to get rid of an abscess ulcer; and to get rid of sensitivity on a tooth.  We also use a BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus. It’s an Erbium laser used for soft tissue as well as cutting hard tissue and removing decay. It’s used instead of a drill, so the laser energy chips away at the tooth structure. You don’t need an anesthetic, 95 percent of the time, which means no needles. This means we can work on multiple areas in the mouth at once.  It can also be used for root canal work to cleanse and disinfect bacteria, and can also be used to trim bone in periodontal bone surgery. I am a laser-assisted dentist. We use it all day long.  Most of the time, we use the WaterLase.  I try to stay on the cutting edge and am the first in my area to have been trained with the water laser.  I’m doing a lot of gum surgery with it, instead of using burs and scalpels. The healing is amazing with it. It disinfects as it cuts, so there is minimal or no bleeding, and many times sutures are not necessary. But, you need to get a mastership to learn how to use the laser.  It’s a whole new world. 

Q. Can a person replace a veneer with bonding?

What our experts say:

In 99% of the cases, bonding is replaced with veneers. If one wants to replace veneers with bonding, it can be accomplished.

Q. I recently read that hydrogen peroxide causes oral cancer. Is this true?

What our experts say:

For years I have been telling my patients about my 1/3 rule. Every night prior to sleep, mix a shot of peroxide with a shot of Listerine and a shot of water. 1/3,1/3,1/3.  Swish for 20 secs and spit.  3% hydrogen peroxide is the only type of peroxide you should put in your mouth.  Searching for articles that prove that hydrogen peroxide causes cancer has led me to find nothing. 3% hydrogen peroxide does not cause cancer. It does provide benefits. There are those who feel peroxide is a cancer cure, delivering oxygen.  Some physicians feel that it is safe to drink peroxide…. That is another story

Q. I have a fear of teeth whitening.

What our experts say:

Although stories can be exaggerated, I am sure that some folks have severe sensitivity after tooth whitening.  Please keep in mind that the percentage is minimal. Tooth whitening is the #1 cosmetic treatment procedure in North America.  Make sure your dental professionals examine your teeth and gum tissue prior to beginning any whitening treatment.  Is there any decay? Are there areas of recession? Any leaking old fillings or margins that are not sealed well?   Are there fractures in teeth? These points are just a few that may end up creating problems during a whitening procedure.   Red wine- After whitening, any kind  of whitening, the tooth surface can become porous. Different grades of porosity on different people. Therefore, the rule of thumb is no red wine for at least 48 hours.  Use a straw if you must. Minimize the contact of the red wine with the tooth.  If you desire whiter teeth for the wedding…… “just do it”…… be smart and put your vision in the hands of a doc that you trust.

Q. What new technologies are you excited to offer?

What our experts say:

I am one of the first practitioners in New York City to be certified in the revolutionary technology of prepless DURAthinTM and MICROthinTM veneers. Get the smile you want without removing healthy enamel.

I am a visiting faculty member of the prestigious Spear Education Program in Scottsdale, Arizona, which offers a range of workshops, seminars and live patient courses to help dentists continue their education and fuel their passion for knowledge.

About My Practice

What's the most important thing you've learned from patients?

Patients respect you when you are honest and truthful. Deliver all of the news, even the tough-to-hear messages.

What qualities make a dentist successful?

In order to be successful, a dentist needs to have superior listening skills, compassion in the trenches, and the ability to maintain levity. I believe all successful individuals have the desire to succeed and push the envelope. You need to be open to paradigms and do your homework.

In what ways is dentistry like art?

Cosmetic dentistry is a true art form because I create sculptures that resemble teeth. I scrutinize their shape, color and form, and look at subtle shading to enhance skin tone and the sizing that works with facial characteristics.

Insights

Great Lengths

Unhappy with what she described as “short, yellow, ugly teeth,” the 39-year-old patient shown here wanted to lengthen her teeth to show more of them when she smiled. “By using crowns, onlays and veneers, we were able to give her the smile of her dreams,” Dr. Kasarsky says. 

Total Smile Transformation

Unhappy with her teeth that she described as “dark, broken and ugly,” this 72-year-old patient sought Dr. Kasarsky for Biolase® laser tooth whitening, bonding and crowns. “The patient says that her new smile brought her back to life and that her friends rave about how good she looks,” says Dr. Kasarsky. 

Laser-Assisted Dentistry

I became fascinated with lasers 14 years ago when ophthalmologists started doing laser vision correction. I knew it would just be a matter of time before we started applying laser science to dentistry. Dr. Kasarsky's office was one of the first in Manhattan to use an extensive variety of lasers in daily practice. I use different lasers for the full spectrum of dental treatment periodontal care, cavities, laser tooth whitening, cosmetic gum sculpting and implant work, he says. Whitening is performed with a Diode Laser. The laser emitted is concentrated and bleaches the tooth while virtually no heat is produced. The laser to clean out cavities uses mini explosions of water molecules by laser energy. Decay is cleaned out, the area is sterilized, and I use the laser to anesthetize the tooth without an injection. Laser care utilizes fluorescent laser technology to find and diagnose unseen and improbable decay.

FAQ

Q. How are porcelain veneers used to enhance a smile?

What our experts say:

They are used in many different ways.  If teeth can’t be bleached to achieve the color you want, you can cover the tooth structure with porcelain. Chips, cracks and fractures can also be covered with porcelain; and we can change the shape of a tooth with porcelain, or repair it with pieces that are missing.  Another thing we can do is change the length of the teeth or provide “quick orthodontics.” So, if you don’t want to spend a year moving your teeth around, we can use the “art of illusion” to create a beautiful esthetic smile in two to three visits. We can also add bulk to the teeth with porcelain. If the side teeth are placed narrowly when the patient smiles, and there is negative space between the corners of their lips and their teeth in the back, we can fill in that space by building out bulk, which broadens their smile. In other words, we have to look at the mouth as a stage. The lips become curtains and the teeth become players.  There are still players in the back of the stage and people still notice them; and in the mouth, they notice them even more if you change the front teeth but not the ones in the back.

Q. What are the benefits of tooth-colored fillings? What is the filling made out of?

What our experts say:

One benefit is there’s no mercury, which is a known carcinogen.  Another benefit is when tooth-colored fillings are placed with adhesives (when using adhesive dentistry), we are not using undercuts to help retain the filling; so the preparation into the good, solid tooth structure is minimal or conservative. The adhesives, or glue, help hold the filling material, and that filling material can contain fluoride, and can mimic the natural beauty of the tooth structure by blending various colors of composite. The composite is kind of like a “space-age plastic,” that is healthier and more conservative than the silver that was used in the past. On a microscopic level, the tooth structure looks like the Rocky Mountains. The composite flows into the “Rocky Mountains” and is then cured (or set) with a bonding light. It sets it into the “nooks and crannies” of the “Rocky Mountains” and that’s what holds it in place.  Another advantage to using tooth-colored fillings is that they can be highly polished and, if it’s done well, the structure of the tooth can be indistinguishable from the filling material.

Q. What type of whitening treatment is most effective?

What our experts say:

The bottom line is they all work.  You can’t say one is better than the other, some are more expensive, some take more treatments to work and some may work better for some than for others. It’s really a dollars and sense and length of time issue. There are strictly take-home whitening systems, where we make a set of trays for you, and you put a whitening gel into the trays with instructions to use at home. In-office whitening is usually a gel that goes on the tooth and is activated with a light, such as Zoom, that produces light and a little bit of heat.  Another in-office treatment is laser whitening. It uses laser energy to activate the whitening gel. I use a laser because it produces far less heat than any other light source, and it works quicker.  In-office treatments will get teeth whiter faster than take-home treatments. 

Q. What are dental implants and when are they used?

What our experts say:

We use implants when somebody is missing a tooth, or if they have a broken tooth extracted and it can’t be saved. A single implant fixes a one-tooth problem with a one-tooth solution. If you have a space, we can put an implant into that space and put a crown on top of it; as opposed to having a space, and having to grind down the tooth in front and behind the space and then making a bridge to bridge the gap. That way uses three teeth to solve a one-tooth problem. Other times, implants are used if someone is missing many teeth. An implant equals the root that used to be there. On top of the implants, we can put teeth (fabricated crowns) that stay in the mouth.  So instead of removable piece like dentures, the teeth stay there. They can be cemented into place, or we can use tiny titanium screws into healthy jaw bone that hold them into place. The patient still has to clean them and go to the hygienist for cleanings.  They can still get periodontal disease, but they don’t decay. 

Q. How do you fix a “gummy smile”?

What our experts say:

There are different ways. If there is excess gum in a healthy tooth (not a periodontally involved tooth), we can use a laser and remove the excess tissue.  (Some dentists use a scalpel, but I use a laser.)  Or, we can move the teeth, if the teeth are too far down in the front and the lip is high, (retrusion). If we push the teeth up, the gum goes with it.  If the tooth is periodontally involved, we sometimes need to cut the gum structure, and sometimes the bone has to be cut as well to improve a gummy smile. We can also lower the lip, if it is too high, by a surgical procedure to bring the lip down, so it will cover the gums. With all the options, we have to look at the individual; there is no one procedure that fits all patients.

Q. How are stem cells used in dentistry?

What our experts say:

This is an area where the research is taking off, it’s quite amazing. There are instances when we can bank baby teeth, and wisdom teeth that are being extracted, and freeze them; so later on in life, if someone is missing a tooth, we can use the stem cells from the tissue of the tooth or gum banked, and use it to grow new gum tissue or tooth structure.  So we are extracting baby teeth and freezing them so we can use that tissue later on in life. If someone is in accident, or if a child does not have an adult bud in a spot in their mouth, we can grow another tooth there.

Q. How do you help beautify patients?

What our experts say:

Matching the personality of the patient with the look of the smile is a step beyond what we are given at birth. 

Q. A little over a year ago, I started grinding my teeth. Once you begin grinding, is there anyway to actually stop? I have a mouth guard but I find that I'm clenching just as bad, if not worse when I'm wearing the guard.

What our experts say:

If the cause of the grinding is directly related to  an incorrect bite, then you have to address the dental concern that is causing the incorrect bite. Poor fitting dental work, bad joint, loose teeth, shifting teeth are some of the dental concerns that may cause one to grind.  If grinding is stemming from STRESS, then the smart way to diminish or stop grinding is to deal with what is causing the stress.  Seek counseling, increase exercise, cut caffeine, cut alcohol.  You mentioned that when you are wearing your mouth guard, your clenching may be worse.  There is a percentage of people who wear soft guards. They feel as if they need to continually bite through the guard. Clenching does not cease.  If you wear a hard guard, you may need the guard to be thicker. The increased height may shut down the muscle activity. One more tidbit to keep in mind. Not only are there nocturnal grinders and clenchers, there can be daytime activity as well.  If you are “confident” that stress is the culprit, start looking for answers there.

Q. What is facial treatment planning and how does it relate to dentistry?

What our experts say:

Facially generated treatment planning provides me with the building block to have teeth support the cheeks and lips, lifting the lower face without a scalpel.

Q. If I got Invisalign, how often do I need new trays?

What our experts say:

New trays are given about every 3 weeks.  The total amount of trays needed depends on how much movement of the teeth is necessary; but it is usually is somewhere around 14 to 18 trays. 

Q. Do at-home whitening strips work?

What our experts say:

On some people they work well and on some they don’t. Whitening works best on yellow or orangey teeth. It’s very difficult to whiten dark gray and brown teeth. It can be done, but it takes more time and effort.

Q. Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

What our experts say:

Men and women who have crowded top anterior (front) or bottom teeth, or teeth that are a little angled (leaning forward or back towards the palate) or displaced. It works well with moderate to minor tooth movement. It can work well for major tooth movement, but that’s usually done in combination with wires, as opposed to just with trays. It can also be used for teeth that have gum lines that are not harmonious from right to left (such as if the gum is up higher on one tooth). We can move the teeth and the gum will move along with the tooth; however, there are times where gum surgery is required instead. 

Q. How long does Invisalign take to correct my teeth?

What our experts say:

The average time is a year, or somewhere between 9 and 18 months.

Q. What is the difference between bonding and veneers? What do they correct? When should each be used?

What our experts say:

A veneer is a front facing, like a cabinet door; it covers the whole front of the tooth. Some people will say they don’t want to have veneers placed because they don’t want to have their actual teeth cut back (we have to cut back a little of the front tooth if we are changing color and shape); but we can do the same thing with bonding material. There is a technique used called a no-prep veneer, which is an ultra-thin veneer made with porcelain that we can use. Porcelain lasts longer and doesn’t stain. Some composites will break down over time and stains can get imbedded into the composite.  Usually we don’t cover the entire tooth surface with bonding, but it can be done, if that is what the patient wants. 

Q. Do whitening treatments cause tooth sensitivity?

What our experts say:

Prior to using any whitening system (including whitening strips), you need to be checked by a dental professional for any issues needed to be addressed with the teeth. If whitening gel gets inside the tooth and the patient doesn’t know, then there it can lead to sensitivity. When you whiten in-office, there are various desensitizing liquids that we paint on the tooth structure, so there is minimal post-op sensitivity. If done incorrectly, there can be a lot of post-op sensitivity, but most of the time its transient (it goes away over the first 12 hours).  However, if you have cracks or little fissures in your teeth, you can create problems along the way and later on.  Whitening centers won’t tell you that.  Their mission is to whiten the teeth and make a profit. 

Q. What are crowns and when are they used? Do you need to alter my natural teeth?

What our experts say:

When a tooth is broken down to the point where we now need to cover the entire tooth because there isn’t healthy ample tooth structure, we use a crown. Basically, if there is enough decay or fracture, or if a piece of old filling is broken off and there is decay underneath.  We have to remove the decay and build the tooth back up.  With a crown we are covering the tooth 360 degrees, or full-coverage. There are other times when we use crown for complex prosthetic cases, to fix sophisticated bites.

Q. What is dental recontouring?

What our experts say:

It can be used in different ways, but most of the time it’s used to recontour the tooth structure. If you look at a smile and some of the teeth, and one to four are not in perfect alignment, we can gently recontour  the enamel, and then polish it to get the desired contour, shape and length that we want without having to use Invisalign. So we can add structure with bonding, but we can also take structure away by recontouring.  It works very well. It’s using the “art of illusion” in the hands of someone who knows what they are doing. Less is best: A little bit of recontouring goes a long way in making a big difference.

Q. How are lasers used in dentistry?

What our experts say:

There are different types of lasers that do different things.  Diode lasers are used on soft tissue only. Sometimes we use it to contour gum tissue, to help get rid of periodontal pockets, to take away gum tissue where there is excess growing over a wisdom tooth; to get rid of an abscess ulcer; and to get rid of sensitivity on a tooth.  We also use a BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus. It’s an Erbium laser used for soft tissue as well as cutting hard tissue and removing decay. It’s used instead of a drill, so the laser energy chips away at the tooth structure. You don’t need an anesthetic, 95 percent of the time, which means no needles. This means we can work on multiple areas in the mouth at once.  It can also be used for root canal work to cleanse and disinfect bacteria, and can also be used to trim bone in periodontal bone surgery. I am a laser-assisted dentist. We use it all day long.  Most of the time, we use the WaterLase.  I try to stay on the cutting edge and am the first in my area to have been trained with the water laser.  I’m doing a lot of gum surgery with it, instead of using burs and scalpels. The healing is amazing with it. It disinfects as it cuts, so there is minimal or no bleeding, and many times sutures are not necessary. But, you need to get a mastership to learn how to use the laser.  It’s a whole new world. 

Q. Can a person replace a veneer with bonding?

What our experts say:

In 99% of the cases, bonding is replaced with veneers. If one wants to replace veneers with bonding, it can be accomplished.

Q. I recently read that hydrogen peroxide causes oral cancer. Is this true?

What our experts say:

For years I have been telling my patients about my 1/3 rule. Every night prior to sleep, mix a shot of peroxide with a shot of Listerine and a shot of water. 1/3,1/3,1/3.  Swish for 20 secs and spit.  3% hydrogen peroxide is the only type of peroxide you should put in your mouth.  Searching for articles that prove that hydrogen peroxide causes cancer has led me to find nothing. 3% hydrogen peroxide does not cause cancer. It does provide benefits. There are those who feel peroxide is a cancer cure, delivering oxygen.  Some physicians feel that it is safe to drink peroxide…. That is another story

Q. I have a fear of teeth whitening.

What our experts say:

Although stories can be exaggerated, I am sure that some folks have severe sensitivity after tooth whitening.  Please keep in mind that the percentage is minimal. Tooth whitening is the #1 cosmetic treatment procedure in North America.  Make sure your dental professionals examine your teeth and gum tissue prior to beginning any whitening treatment.  Is there any decay? Are there areas of recession? Any leaking old fillings or margins that are not sealed well?   Are there fractures in teeth? These points are just a few that may end up creating problems during a whitening procedure.   Red wine- After whitening, any kind  of whitening, the tooth surface can become porous. Different grades of porosity on different people. Therefore, the rule of thumb is no red wine for at least 48 hours.  Use a straw if you must. Minimize the contact of the red wine with the tooth.  If you desire whiter teeth for the wedding…… “just do it”…… be smart and put your vision in the hands of a doc that you trust.

Q. What new technologies are you excited to offer?

What our experts say:

I am one of the first practitioners in New York City to be certified in the revolutionary technology of prepless DURAthinTM and MICROthinTM veneers. Get the smile you want without removing healthy enamel.

Testimonials

Alleviating Dental Fear

Tate, Age 42

"I suffered from a broken tooth and my crowns were 10 years old, but I had a true fear of the dentist. Dr. Kasarsky and his warm staff spent time speaking with me about my options and we ultimately decided upon sedation dentistry, in which Dr. K is a specialist. The sedation was really helpful, enabling Dr. K to insert my new porcelain veneers and crowns. Dr. K is understanding, committed and skilled with an aesthetic eye—I highly recommend him."

Personality that makes you feel well taken care of.

Marian

Jason Kasarsky has a personality that makes you feel well taken care of. His office equipment reflects a dentist that keeps up with the newest technology.

I was completely impressed with the incredibly efficient, friendly, and competent staff from the front desk to the exam room. Thank you Dr. Kasarsky for making a dental office visit so enjoyable!

Since 1982

Steve

Have been with Dr. Kasarsky since 1982. Caring, intelligent & communicative dental treatment and prevention. Wonderful dental hygienist Marissa. Friendly & cooperative office staff.

Staff very attentive and well trained.

Michael

Always great service. Quick appointment was available for a recent unanticipated issue. The practice doesn't seem to overbook and therefore never had to wait more than a minute a two past my appointment. Staff very attentive and well trained. Dr. Kasarsky always does complete and comprehensive work with a view towards the longer term.

Patient Anonymous

I chose Dr. Kasarsky after viewing numerous websites. I was tired of 58 years of "British Teeth" which, while presentable, were a little uneven, a bit discolored and couldn't be improved with whitening solutions. I am among the most dentist-phobic people on earth, but it was a reviewer who said he flew from Los Angeles to see Dr. Kasarsky that led me to finally take the plunge and sign up for "American Teeth" - the ones you see on TV anchors. Dr. K is very experienced in this area (and I found out later has worked on TV people). From the very first visit I knew that he was going to do great work. He is friendly and approachable and deeply expert as a cosmetic dentist. He told me what would work and what wouldn't. It all took 3 visits and he fitted 8 veneers on my top teeth (which are the ones you see when I smile). Outstanding experience. I look younger - hey I could be on TV now! I feel much more confident. This is an investment, look better and you get paid more - for longer. You can always find someone who will do this "for less" - I can only say that kind of thinking makes no sense to me. You want THE BEST, because veneers last 10-15 years so unless you're a pensioner you will be doing this AGAIN so it just makes sense to go top of the line. Dr. Kasarsky is top of the line. And I would add that his staff are superior and friendly and just terrific. His office is in midtown Manhattan.
