Drs. Boyd, P.C. is pleased to announce that prosthodontist Dr. Andrew Wingate Boyd represented the practice on American Health Front TV on WCBS Channel 2 on the New York CBA affiliate station on October 1, 2016. As one of the Drs. Boyd fourth generation dentists, Dr. Andrew discussed in detail how dental treatments such as porcelain veneers create beautiful confident smiles. The half-hour American Health Front TV program is dedicated to educating the public on health care technologies by providing viewers with valuable information on the latest treatments and advancement.
The American Health Front host noted that the Drs. Boyd P.C. have been providing the greater New York area with beautiful smiles since Dr. Andrew Boyd’s grandfather, Dr. Norman Wingate Boyd, Sr. started his practice in Manhattan in the early 1930s. The practice was incorporated as the Drs. Boyd P.C. in 1974. Currently Dr. Andrew Boyd is joined by his father Dr. Alvin T. Boyd, his uncle Dr. Norman Wingate Boyd, Jr., his brother Dr. Justin Shepard Boyd, and cousin Dr. Norman “Ned” Wingate Boyd, III in the 515 Madison Avenue, New York City dental practice.
As a prosthodontist, Dr. Andrew is an expert in the restoration and replacement of teeth. After completing four years of dental school, prosthodontists receive an extra three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate program.
During the program, Dr. Andrew explained, “Porcelain veneers are a terrific option for someone who wants to feel confident about their smiles and themselves. It’s an opportunity for someone to change their life. We start by discussing with the patient what is it they find displeasing about their smiles and what we can do to improve it. It’s vitally important to understand how they got to the position they are today. As a prosthodontist, we are the only specialty that has extensive training not only in creating smiles that are beautiful, but also smiles that function beautifully as well.”
A veneer is a thin, shell-like facing of high strength porcelain that is bonded to the face of the tooth. Veneers can be used to treat chipped, cracked, discolored, misshapen and malaligned teeth, which in some situations can eliminate the need for braces. With veneers, the prosthodontist also has the ability to permanently whiten an entire smile. In his segment, Dr. Andrew showed state-of-the-art techniques, such as digital smile design and digital impressions that the Drs. Boyd use to make beautiful smiles faster and even more predictably than ever before. Restoring a smile with veneers typically takes between two and three visits to complete.
