About Night Guards
Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, affects over 10 – 15% of adults and can cause jaw pain, headaches, tooth pain, swelling, and other symptoms. Over time, teeth grinding can damage the teeth and cause expensive dental problems. High-quality, custom night guards can be made at a dental laboratory from impressions taken at Cosmetic Dental Studios in Midtown Manhattan with cosmetic and general dentist, Dr. Victoria Veytsman. A custom-made night guard helps patients who grind their teeth or clench their jaw while sleeping so they can sleep better while protecting their teeth and jaw.

"Dr. Veytsman has been keeping my smile beautiful for almost 20 years. I would never let anyone else work on my teeth. Not only is she brilliant at making people look beautiful, she's a pleasure to be around. I really enjoy each visit because I get to catch up with her and her infectious energy and amazing attitude. She cares about me, my family, and making me look great. And of course, she's a terrific dentist and my teeth have stayed healthy and strong all these years."- E.L. / Facebook / May 16, 2018

"Finding a dentist is quite difficult, given how dreadful it is to go to one. I felt the same way when I was searching for one. I came across Dr. V and immediately booked an appointment, hoping it wouldn't be as frightful as my previous experiences with my past dentists. Well let me tell you, not only did Dentist visits stop being dreadful, it became one that I ALWAYS looked forward to! Dr. Veytsman is by far the most sweetest, personable, humble, and straight-forward physicians I have ever met! She makes every visit personal and makes sure the patient is comfortable. She goes through multiple options for whatever procedure you need to get done. Best part is, she DOES NOT rush! She takes her time on her patients, to make sure they don't go through any discomfort or pain. Along with her positive and bright personality, she made sure to hire the most friendliest, fun and sweetest staff to work with her; that would add to the kind of environment and patient experience that she is trying to create: easy, comfortable, fun, relaxing and HAPPY. Thanks Dr. V for taking care of me for over 8 years, and tackling each tooth one at time! You're the best! :)"- S.P. / Yelp / Jan 09, 2018

What to Expect
Once the patient decides to get a night guard, they will schedule an appointment at Cosmetic Dental Studios to have impressions of the upper and lower teeth made. The impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory where a custom-fit night guard will be crafted for the patient. Once the night guard is returned to Cosmetic Dental Studios, the patient will come in to have their night guard fitted by Dr. Veytsman.
The night guard can last for several years with proper home care. The patient should clean the mouth guard before and after each use. Depending on the type of material used when making the mouth guard, Dr. Veytsman will give the patient more specific care instructions. Patients should bring their night guard to all future dental appointments at Cosmetic Dental Studios so Dr. Veytsman can check for general wear and decide when it needs to be replaced.
Compared to over-the-counter night guards, custom night guards are more expensive, but some, or all, of the cost may be covered by the patient’s dental insurance if it is medically necessary. A night guard custom fit by Dr. Veytsman at Cosmetic Dental Studios can be an investment, but they are more comfortable and last longer than store bought night guards.
