Creating or recreating components of a great looking smile takes on more importance as we move into adulthood. Careers and social activities have a tremendous impact on how we want to look. Bite problems, if not treated or corrected during our developmental years can (actually, will) come into full bloom as we move through adulthood.
Eating habits, oral health care histories, trauma, delayed or forestalled treatments for routine restorations make up a larger part of all the things that can require a reconstructive effort... rather than just restorative.
Our practice has been involved in celebrity style cosmetic dentistry since it became popular. Long Island dosmentic dentist, Dr. Koeppel, years ago, was a cofounder of the International Medical and Dental Spa Association, in an effort to establish a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere within the dental setting and to offer our patients the widest range of cosmetic change or outcomes imaginable for nearly any dental need.
Endurance of course becomes a significant issue for any restorative treatment but when a complete smile makeover is the desired result... Dr. Koeppel's patients can select from a virtual menu of reconstructive components that can promise long term endurance.

Reconstructive Dentistry is probably the broadest and most inclusive term used to describe the concept of replacing, rebuilding or creating, for the first time, the elements and relationships between teeth, the upper and lower jaws and overall facial structures.
Although reconstructive treatment plans typically involve units of replacement or reparative dentistry (replacing a crown, a filling, an implant, bridge, etc.), the terms are not interchangeable.
Rather, Dental Reconstruction refers to the elements of change introduced by treating and/or replacing tooth structures and ... most importantly.. the process of assuring an optimization of bite that maintains dental function for each and every unique patient. Dr. Koeppel strives to be the Best Cosmetic Dentist on Long Island and cares for his patients as if they were family.
