NEW YORK, NY – Dr. Marvin Lagstein, a leading dentist in Manhattan, has an affordable way for patients to get straight teeth in only six months.
Dr. Lagstein’s Manhattan dental office, Smile Specialists NYC, uses Fastbraces® to align teeth in a few months, and now gives patients the option of paying for the treatment through CareCredit. CareCredit allows patients to finance braces over a 60-month period with a low interest rate. Monthly payments can be as low as $108.
“The great thing about Fastbraces® is that it is faster and more affordable than traditional braces to start with, and now patients can finance their treatment and pay a low monthly payment for a glowing, beautiful smile,” Dr. Lagstein said.
Fastbraces® is an orthodontic procedure that uses a state-of-the-art bracket-and-wire system to straighten the crown and root of the teeth at the same time. This is unique because traditional orthodontics move the root and crown of the tooth separately, with each stage taking more than twice the time of Fastbraces®.
Fastbraces® uses one super-elastic wire throughout the entire course of treatment, which reduces the sensitivity of the teeth-straightening process. Dr. Lagstein is a leading provider of Fastbraces® in New York City. His Fastbraces® patients often see optimal results in six months, although some patients complete treatment in just three months.
In addition to CareCredit, Dr. Lagstein’s office offers seven financial plans as well as in-house financing options.
“We now can help almost everyone who wants to get their dream smile – usually in six months or less,” Dr. Lagstein said. “I know that when someone gets a smile they are proud of, they gain more confidence. More confidence means better self-esteem, which turns into better jobs and relationships.”
Smile Specialists NYC, 236 E. 36 St., includes eight operatories and an outside courtyard, making it a spacious area for New York City. In addition to Fastbraces®, Dr. Lagstein offers full orthodontic services and is considered one of the top lingual braces providers in the country.
Lingual braces are braces that are placed behind the teeth. This style of braces has all the corrective benefits of traditional braces, but it allows adults and teens to receive their orthodontic treatment without having metal brackets or wires predominantly displayed on the front of their teeth. Lingual braces are also considered a good alternative to traditional braces because the front enamel is not bothered during the treatment.
Dr. Lagstein, originally from Brooklyn, graduated from Brooklyn College in 1964 and then earned his dental degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in 1968. Following graduation, he earned speciality training from Eastman Dental Center in pediatric dentistry and started his own practice in 1972. He began studying orthodontics after opening the practice to address tooth growth and development issues in children and young teens. Dr. Lagstein also served for two years in the U.S. Army.
Dr. Lagstein is a diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, fellow of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and a lecturer and associate professor with the College of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He is also on the staff at Chilton Hospital and Valley Hospital. He holds memberships with the New Jersey Dental Association, New Jersey Society of Dentistry for Children, American Dental Association, American Society of Dentistry for Children, American Association for Functional Orthodontics, Bergen County Dental Association and Mid-American Orthodontic Society.
