Frequently Asked Questions

What is a prosthodontist?

If you’re looking for an Upper East Side dentist that provides treatments that restore both function and aesthetics, consider a prosthodontist. Prosthodontists have advanced training beyond dental school which allows them to specialize in diagnosing, rehabilitating, and maintaining oral function, health, and appearance.

Is prosthodontics covered by insurance?

Yes, if you have dental insurance, our services are covered the same way they’d be covered for any other dental professional. 

Is TMJ a medical or dental condition?

It’s a little bit of both—and it also depends on the underlying cause of your TMJ disorder. If, for example, your TMJ pain is caused by joint damage from arthritis, it may be viewed as more of a medical condition. The good news is that no matter what the cause of your TMJ disorder, prosthodontists can diagnose it. Our advanced training includes education on the anatomy and function of the jaw, so there’s no one better to see for TMJ pain.

What is a CEREC crown?

We offer CEREC crowns on the Upper East Side because we believe they’re superior to traditional crowns. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and with this technology, we can prepare your tooth, design and fabricate a restoration, and then place that restoration permanently all on the same day.

How long do dental implants last?

The dental implants themselves—the posts that are implanted into your jaw—are designed to be a permanent replacement for the roots of your teeth and meant to last a lifetime. The restorations attached to your dental implants may need eventual replacement, but these can last decades with exceptional care.

How much does it cost for Invisalign on the Upper East Side?

The cost of Invisalign on the Upper East Side ranges between $3000 and $7000, with the exact price depending on the number of aligners you need and how long your treatment takes.

How do veneers work?

Porcelain veneers are designed to cover your natural tooth to hide imperfections. A small amount of tooth enamel is removed, then veneers are bonded directly to the surface of your tooth. Because work is done on the surface level only, veneers don’t compromise the health of your overall tooth structures.

What is a crown lengthening procedure?

Crown lengthening can be done for cosmetic reasons (to correct a “gummy smile”) or to enable crown placement by exposing more tooth surface. It involves trimming excess gum tissue. Your gums will be numbed, so you won’t experience any pain while we work, but you may feel some tenderness after the procedure.

Can you feel pain when sedated?

Sedation and anesthesia are two separate things. If you’re undergoing a procedure that has the potential to be painful, we’ll always provide you with local anesthesia to ensure you’re comfortable and experience no pain during the appointment. Sedation can be used in addition to local anesthesia to help soothe anxiety.

Can a dentist treat sleep apnea?

Yes, dentists can treat sleep apnea; because sleep apnea can often be corrected by repositioning the lower jaw, prosthodontists are particularly skilled at the diagnosis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. We offer oral appliance therapy as a first line of treatment for patients with this sleep disorder.

What Our Patients Are Saying

"I have been to a lot of dentists and I have to say Dr. Cafarella is by far the best dentist I've seen. He has an excellent chairside manner and was not only thorough but gentle. For someone with mild dental anxiety, I can say I felt very relaxed throughout my long appointments; I had a full mouth of cosmetic work done and it looks amazing and so natural. Another plus was that he worked for hand in hand with his lab technician to get the shade and shape of the teeth just right. He is by far the best cosmetic dentist in the city. I am fully confident I have found my forever dentist."


"Dr. Mike performed a complicated extraction and implant and couldn’t have done a better job. The whole process was pain-free with minimal bleeding and I couldn’t be happier with his services. Definitely one of the best dentists on the upper east side. The office staff was always so welcoming and prompt in responding to any inquiries that I have throughout the whole process. I am a senior citizen and they never failed to put me at ease with their knowledge and friendly demeanors. I will not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!"


"This should be called Integrity Dentistry. If you want serious professional people doing their job right, you want this group! From day one I have been treated impeccably and given information to heal my teeth and gums. These people are the real deal. When you get with the right practitioner, it’s just maintenance going forward. Do yourself a favor and go here! They are TOP NOTCH! And cool people on top of their impeccable professionalism. Highly recommend!"


"Wonderful experience from check-in to check out. Very easy patient enrollment process with slick iPad interface followed by an extremely professional and informative appointment. Through examination from a very friendly team. Seems strange to say it but already looking forward to my next dentist appointment."
