At Gregory Merkley, DDS, PLLC, we emphasize the importance of a preventive approach to dental care, and recommend biannual checkups for you and your family. Routine teeth cleanings and comprehensive examinations help to keep your teeth cavity free from the start and to detect oral health conditions in their earliest stages, when they are most easily treatable. For our pediatric patients, whose lifestyle and dietary habits make them most susceptible to tooth decay, we recommend extra cavity protection with fluoride treatments and dental sealants. We are also leading providers of Invisalign, and orthodontic treatment for image conscious teens and adults, which corrects misaligned teeth with virtually invisible plastic appliances. For patients who suffer from dental anxiety, we make visits to the dentist a stress free experience with sedation options that provide a deep feeling of relaxation and can make a lengthy procedure feel like it’s over in just minutes. Lasers are also beneficial to anxious or fearful patients, as they can be used to perform biopsies, treat periodontal disease and cure fillings, without unpleasant stimuli such as vibrations, heat or pressure.
Our practice also offers a comprehensive menu of cosmetic procedures to improve not only the health and function, but the appearance of your smile. Our skillful Penfield dentist combines the art and science of dentistry to make your smile dreams a reality. Minimally invasive procedures, such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, are relatively simple approaches that can dramatically enhance your smile. Our professional teeth whitening procedures can quickly transform your smile into one that is several shades whiter and brighter. You can choose to perform this procedure in our office in one visit or at home using a customized kit. If your teeth have more significant imperfections, we offer porcelain veneers to correct the size, shape and color of your teeth and achieve a brighter, more harmonious smile. Our dental solutions to replace lost or missing teeth include dental implants, which come the closest to replicating the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth. Dental implants also prevent bone loss in the areas of missing teeth and help to preserve the natural contours of your face. We can also very effectively replace missing teeth with fixed bridges and comfortable, natural looking dentures.
