A Skilled Prosthodontist
Dr. Penny Planzos is a prosthodontist, a dentist who specializes in the treatment and diagnosis of dental and facial problems. She uses restorative techniques to correct tooth and jaw problems because these oral health concerns can be particularly painful and lead to additional facial and dental damage.
If you have a damaged or decaying tooth, Dr. Planzos can create a custom dental crown to fit over your tooth to protect and strengthen it once the compromised tissue has been removed.
Localized areas of tooth loss, like two to three missing teeth in a row, can be restored with a bridge composed of pontics that have been fused together and are supported by crowns on adjacent abutment teeth.
Dentures are best for patients who are missing all or most of their teeth. Traditional and partial dentures can be removed and are custom-made for your comfort.
Crowns, bridges, and dentures can be supported by dental implants, metal posts that are surgically placed in the jaw to replace tooth roots and prevent jawbone atrophy.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surface of a tooth to conceal imperfections such as gaps, minor tooth damage, and discoloration.
A Spotlight on Technology
Dr. Planzos understands how important it is to her patients that she creates restorations in a timely manner. That’s why she does everything she can to stay abreast of the latest technology and techniques in her field of dentistry.
She incorporates the most advanced technology to make her procedures efficient and painless. She is able to take digital impressions of her patients’ mouths, design their restorations, and use CEREC® technology to mill restorations, sometimes in a single visit.
Hear What Our Patients Are Saying
The Staff was very attentive, understanding, professional and took their time. I didn’t feel like a number I felt like an actual person that knew them for years. I felt very comfortable getting my dental implant. The Dentist and dental assistant can see I was nervous and kept asking me if I was ok and telling me I’m doing doing great.View on Google
I had a great experience at Brooklyn Heights Dental. I generally hate going to the dentist but this was an efficient and easy visit. I did not wait long to be seen, and the staff was extremely welcoming and kind. The hygienist was very empathetic to a couple sensitive areas, and I had a very pleasant experience. Highly recommend.View on Google
