Frequently Asked Questions
Q)Why are dental implants the right choice for me?
Dental implants offer patients several valuable benefits that simply aren’t found in any other tooth replacement option. Their structure replicates both the crown and the root of your natural tooth seamlessly, bolstering your oral health in addition to your aesthetic appearance. Dental implants are also durable, functional, and built to last – with proper maintenance and routine appointments with our team, they can last for the rest of the patient’s life.
Of course, no one reconstructive treatment option can be perfect for every single patient. That’s why scheduling a personal consultation with our doctors here in Manhattan or Union City, NJ is so important – we can help you determine your oral health needs and make recommendations that best fit your situation.
Q)Will I need to see a separate doctor to have my dental implants placed?
No! Instead of needing to refer you out, Dr. Manci and Dr. Marini offer every step of the dental implant process right here in their offices for maximum convenience and comfort.
QI want to improve the appearance of my smile. What options are available?
Our doctors are always happy to help you regain the flourishing sense of self-confidence you deserve, which is why cosmetic dentistry is such an important part of our practice. We’ll work with you to learn your personal preferences and desires for treatment, as well as any scheduling and budgetary limitations we need to keep in mind when planning the perfect care experience. Porcelain veneers, direct bonding, teeth whitening, crown lengthening, and more are available to choose from!
Q)Will my dental restorations at Marini & Manci Dentistry look unnatural?
Not at all. We pride ourselves on offering patients sophisticated restorative solutions that come with valuable cosmetic benefits, including metal-free restorations and tooth-colored fillings. Both of these options are designed to beautifully complement your natural smile in a way that’s strong, biocompatible, and comfortable.
Q)I want a straighter smile, but I hate the idea of wearing metal braces. Is there any other way?
There definitely is. Here in Manhattan and Union City, we’re happy to offer Invisalign treatment, which utilizes clear, comfortable aligners in place of traditional wires and brackets to move your teeth towards their ideal positioning. These aligners are removable for added convenience and speed – in fact, most patients are finished in just 18 months or less. Our doctors have personally handled over 300 Invisalign cases in the past four years, and we look forward to giving you new reasons to smile as well with this cosmetic-minded orthodontic option!
Q)Can a dentist really help treat my sleep apnea?
Yes! If you’ve been diagnosed with mild to moderate sleep apnea by your general doctor or a sleep specialist, a custom oral appliance from our team may be able to provide the relief you need. Please contact our team to learn more.
Q)Do you take my insurance?
At Marini & Manci Dentistry, we’re in-network with all major PPO plans, and our team can file paperwork on your behalf to help you reap your available benefits to the fullest extent. Please visit our new patients page to learn more about your financial options.
