A smile makeover addresses gaps between teeth and more: Advanced Dentistry of Westchester 

Dental health

When I see myself on Zoom, I notice that my teeth have become worn and old-looking. How can I bring back my youthful smile?

Zoom get-togethers can make you feel self-conscious about every imperfection. If you are concerned about worn and discolored teeth, gaps, and chipped teeth, a smile makeover not only addresses all of these issues but can make you look 15 years younger. Using a range of techniques from bleaching to porcelain veneers, we create beautiful and natural-looking smiles. Before any work is done, a photograph is taken and revised to reveal how your new smile will look. Once you love the look of trial veneers, the porcelain veneers are created, and you leave with the smile you’ve always wanted. We also share our approach to esthetics with other dentists through the classes we teach and our articles and chapters on cosmetic dentistry.

Restoring a chipped tooth: CareMount Dental

I have a chip in my tooth that I’m very self-conscious about. What can be done to fix it?

Depending on the size and location of the chipped tooth, bonding can be a great solution to restore its appearance. Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material to the affected tooth to conceal the chip. In many instances, it’s not even necessary to use novocaine. It is a relatively quick and non-invasive procedure, usually completed in a single visit to your dentist’s office. The bonding material is durable and typically can withstand normal biting and chewing force. However, bonding may require occasional touch-ups or repairs over time, especially if it is placed on the edges of front teeth to add length to them. It’s important to consult with a dentist to evaluate your specific case and determine if tooth bonding is the most appropriate option for you. Other options include porcelain veneers or crowns (caps) on teeth, which may be necessary and stronger depending upon the size of the chip. The dentist can do a thorough overall exam to ensure that bonding is a suitable choice or if a different procedure is required. At CareMount Dental, our dentists will guide you through the process, answer any questions you have, and help you achieve the smile you desire.

Preventing premature skin aging: Farida Skin Care Studio 

What is an infrared sauna and what benefits does it provide?

An infrared sauna warms the body directly with infrared light waves. It is a dry heat therapy that does not use water or add humidity. This allows deep penetration into muscle tissues without feeling too hot or uncomfortable. Regular sessions can stimulate collagen production, which helps to prevent premature skin aging. This therapy improves blood flow, reduces chronic pain while stimulating relaxation. In addition, the deep heat penetration helps to remove many of the internal toxins that result from unhealthy food, pollution, and heavy metals. At Farida Studio many of our guests enjoy 30 minutes in the infrared sauna followed by a 90-minute massage and body scrub.

  • Incorporate a healthy diet to fuel your body with the right nutrients for optimal performance and recovery.
  • Adjust intensity and duration of exercise based on the heat index and recognize early signs of heat illness.
  • Listen to your body and seek orthopedic care if you experience pain or discomfort.

By following these tips, you can help reduce your risk of sports injuries and stay in the game all summer long.

Finding relief when depression treatments don’t work: NY Ketamine Infusions

What is Ketamine and how does it help with depression?

Ketamine is a safe, effective anesthetic that has been in use worldwide since 1970 and has been listed on the World Health Organization’s Essential Medicines list since 1985. Multiple studies and trials run at Mount Sinai in New York, Yale, and other prestigious universities and hospitals since 1990 have shown that ketamine is exceptionally effective in treating treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, anxiety, and other related mood disorders. Unlike standard antidepressants like SSRIs and SNRIs which generally take four to eight weeks to work (if they work at all), ketamine is fast-acting and can sometimes show immediate efficacy. Because of its fast-acting nature, ketamine can be an extremely important tool in preventing suicide and immediately alleviating the suffering caused by major depressive disorder (MDD). At NY Ketamine Infusions, we have more clinical experience than any other ketamine center in the world and are proud to report that 84% of our patients experienced noteworthy or significant improvement in their symptoms.

Treating loose skin after weight loss: White Plains Hospital Physician Associates

I recently lost a lot of weight and have loose skin on my stomach. Will it go away at all over time?

The short answer for most people is, unfortunately, no. Young people have a greater capacity for skin recoil after weight loss, but recoil can be gradual and not meet the patient’s goals. After weight loss (especially if over 50 pounds or in aging skin), skin reduction surgery is often necessary to achieve an aesthetic contour.

What type of surgery is ideal for removing excess skin?

Every surgery is unique based on the patient’s needs. The most common procedure is a panniculectomy, which removes excess skin on the lower abdomen. Some patients will require a single scar across their lower abdomen while others benefit more from a horizontal and vertical excision pattern (fleur de lis). Some patients only need skin removed, while others may also benefit from liposuction of isolated remaining fat pockets or tightening of the abdominal muscles. Surgeries can also be tailored to reduce excess skin on the upper arms, back and thighs, and to restore shape and fullness to breasts. Safety is paramount! Please be sure that your surgeon is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, which ensures they have met the requirements set forth to practice plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Is there any way to tighten loose skin without surgery?

One exciting non-surgical option is radiofrequency microneedling. This is an in-office treatment for patients with a small amount of skin laxity. After application of a topical anesthetic, a hand-held device is used to make tiny perforations in the skin and deliver a radiofrequency current to the deeper levels of the skin. This increases collagen and elastin in the skin, resulting in tightening. This procedure can be done anywhere on the face or body and requires no “downtime.” The results cannot be expected to mimic those of surgery, but can be ideal for patients who desire improvement without surgical recovery.

Dr. Alessandrina Freitas is a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at White Plains Hospital Physician Associates. To make an appointment, visit or call 914.683.1400.
