Frequently Asked Questions

How can periodontal disease be so serious when there is no pain associated with it?
It can be very serious, this disease advances without any pain. Beware of the following warning signs:
bleeding gums when brushing and flossing; swollen gums; receded gums; teeth changing
positions; and, pus or swelling around the gums.

If I have periodontal disease, will I require surgery?
In many cases, surgery can be avoided through a conservative course of gum treatments. Yet,
when surgery occurs, it usually is only needed in a few areas of the mouth.

Is tooth whitening/bleaching safe?
The bleaching procedures used in our office meet the American Dental Association’s standards.
Your tooth structure remains intact and your teeth are not more susceptible to staining during the
bleach process.

Must I get my teeth capped to get rid of the space between my teeth?
Modern technology eliminates much of the need to cap teeth. Dr. Bunis and Dr. Dubov are one
of the few dentists in Jersey City that can skillfully insert veneers to make dramatic cosmetic
changes to improve your smile.

Does all cosmetic dentistry look the same on every individual?
No! We use factors such as facial structure and skin tone to make selections that vary in size,
shape, and color.

What are dental implants?
An implant, a metal post, replaces a patient’s tooth root or roots. Once the artificial root or roots
are in, replacement teeth are inserted and anchored to the bone. These teeth appear and feel
completely natural.

30-plus years. We provide you with a preventive maintenance program to insure the long-term
success of your implants.

Care for implants the same way you care for natural teeth.

What will happen without treatment?
When you lose your teeth, you gradually lose the bone that supported the teeth. As this bone
shrinks, problems surface and lead to increased discomfort, mobility, lack of retention of
dentures, and sharp painful ridges, movable gums and sore spots. Additionally, the tongue
enlarges to accommodate the space. Diet changes to softer foods. The jaw becomes susceptible
to fracture. So, call of dentist office in Jersey City to make an appointment today!
