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, is a fantastic dentist and a great human being. Super kind, gentle and knowledgeable. She's not pushy, like some other dr's, I've had and I appreciate that (accept for some stuff that really needs immediate attention of course). I had some work done on my teeth overseas and she actually complimented the work, super cool. Oh and did I mention that she is drop dead gorgeous tall beautiful young lady?!!! Love her assistant as well, super kind and very sweet. We can chat for forever."- A.O. / Facebook / May 25, 2017
"Victoria is one of the most competent and kindest dentists that I know. She has taken care of so many patients I have sent her way- from celebrities to supermodels to busy corporate moguls to Moms Dads and kids. Her kind nature and caring touch suits everyone. Conveniently based in midtown Manhattan- she is centrally located for us busy New Yorkers constantly on the go. I always recommend Vicky to everyone... she is truly one of my favorite people on the planet- plus she is stunningly beautiful!"- M.A. / Facebook / May 11, 2017

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.
