Are you missing teeth? Are gaps in your smile causing you discomfort, embarrassment or a decreased quality of life? Rest assured, at LuxDen you will be in great hands! Dr. Umanoff has over 15 years of experience in placing and restoring dental implants in Brooklyn. He utilizes dental implants in many ways, including replacing a single missing tooth, to restoring multiple teeth or even reconstructing a toothless mouth. Each case is custom planned based on each patient’s individual oral health situation. There are many types of dental implants available. Our professional dental team can determine which will work best for you, depending on the location of the implant and the reason for it. Ultimately, dental implants are a great alternative to bridges or dentures that are often used in order to fill gaps where there are missing teeth. There are no required adjacent teeth that need to be prepared in order to hold the new replacement tooth or teeth in place, which is a major benefit for this dental appliance use.
Single crown dental implants can be used as a worry-free solution and long-lasting positive results for a variety of dental patients in our New York office. Full mouth reconstruction can also be achieved with implants. Full mouth reconstruction refers to rebuilding or replacing all of the teeth in the mouth. Full mouth reconstructions use aesthetics combined with restorative dentistry in order to improve the health, function, and beauty of the teeth and mouth.
We also perform bone augmentation in our Brooklyn NY dental office. Patients with insufficient natural and/or healthy bone to support dental implants, are ideal candidates for bone augmentation. We only use the highest quality materials when it comes to bone grafting and even have the technology to use bone from the actual patient to ensure integration. Sinus lift procedures also can be done in our office. A sinus lift is a surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and/or premolars. In order to make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward (in a lifted position). This is achieved with the use of special equipment and a Piezotome machine that cuts into soft tissue.
Dental crowns are used to improve strength, function, durability and for other aesthetic purposes. They are often used when a tooth is cracked/broken, there is an old filling that needs to be replaced, or there is severe tooth decay. Crowns are custom made and come in a variety of different materials and types to suit every dental situation. After a dental examination, we can determine when a patient may need a crown, and which one they would benefit from the most.
Porcelain Infused Zirconium (PFM) crowns are a popular choice as they combine durability, strength, and aesthetics perfectly. These crowns are perfect for the front teeth as they look very natural. Zirconium crowns are the strongest and come in both opaque and translucent varieties. They are great for hiding tooth damage and stains. Ceramic crowns are a great choice for aesthetic appeal and are great for front teeth as they mimic the transparency and tooth structure for natural-looking teeth.
Other options available at our Brooklyn, New York dental office include CEREC Crowns-In-A-Day and full gold dental crowns. For those wanting quick yet efficient crowns, CEREC crowns are one-day crowns that are measured, planned and milled right in our dental office. There is no need for waiting to get your crown in from the dental laboratory or for other appointments; it’s all done in one day!

Dental veneers are one example of a cosmetic dentistry procedure that works to improve the appearance of a smile. These thin, custom-made shells are placed on top of the front surface of the teeth to change their shape, size, length, or color. They can be made from composite resin or porcelain and are used to repair chipped, broken, worn down, misaligned, uneven, gapped or discolored teeth.
Dental bonding is used to correct a tooth gap, to cover discoloration and to fix broken or chipped teeth. Bonding is done by color matching the existing tooth and providing a natural-looking “cover-up.” This safe and effective cosmetic dentistry procedure has our cosmetic dentist in Brooklyn shaping the composite resin to the tooth and applying a bonding agent while using a curing light to help it to bond successfully.
Zoom! teeth whitening is another cosmetic procedure which allows our dentists to offer patients brighter and whiter teeth. This in-office bleaching treatment can quickly brighten the teeth up to eight shades in just one treatment at our New York dental office.
For those seeking a clear braces or metal braces alternative, Invisalign is the answer. This cosmetic dentistry procedure uses clear trays that are changed out over a period of time to slowly shift the position of the teeth in the mouth. These clear aligners are undetectable and removed while eating and drinking, and for regular oral hygiene too.
