How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Improve Your smile

There is nothing more rewarding to me in my practice then watching the transformation one goes through when enhancing and beautifying their smile with porcelain and ceramic veneers. Going through life with teeth that make one feel self-conscious in both their social interactions and work-life is no way to live life! The confidence that shines through my patients’ smiles after completing veneer work is quite frankly AMAZING! We hear story after story about job promotions, engagements, and overall increases in self-esteem after their smile makeovers.

I tell my patients, family, and friends that if you find yourself hiding behind your lips and hands when smiling then it is time to make a change. Whether it is that you are noticing that your teeth are chipping, or stained, or have old bonding or are simply unattractive to you, then you need to know that there are cosmetic dentistry options for you! With veneers being the most ideal cosmetic option to fully enhance and brighten the look, shape, and feel of your teeth in both an easy and conservative way. It can give you tremendous confidence every time you walk into a room and smile.

I have perfected the predictability and aesthetic outcome of veneer treatment using my “Dr. D’s smile makeover aesthetic steps to success technique”. In fact, I have been invited to Co-Author a book called “Smile! Creating Healthy and Beautiful Smiles with Cosmetic Dentistry”, currently scheduled for release in early 2020 and will be available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever books are sold.

The book is designed to be the go-to book for dental patients who want to access the latest information on how cosmetic dentistry can improve their lives. My chapters will be focusing exclusively on Dental Veneers. It is an honor to have been selected to work on this project as the importance of patients’ education shouldn’t be underestimated. I take great care to ensure my patients know all of their options, and I am glad to participate and author a book that enables that understanding to more patients around the country on dental veneers.

Though veneers may be life-changing, what they are not is scary, nor do they hurt and unlike the myth – veneers are not only for the elderly. I have teenagers, 20-year-olds, along with those in their 30’s, 40’s and beyond that have successfully transformed their smiles with veneers. With 100% patient satisfaction using my Dr. D’s smile makeover aesthetic steps to success technique and protocol.

Veneers are completely custom-made ceramic or porcelain chips that will be specifically created to enhance your smile with natural undetectable results. No one will be able to tell that you have veneers, yet they will be amazed by your smile.

The beauty of ceramic continues on way past the first year, as they are naturally stain-resistant! If your reason for veneers is because of stained or yellowing teeth then one of the most important benefits of veneers for you will be their ability to permanently brighten and whiten your teeth and be completely stain-resistant. You will be able to maintain a bright white smile while still being able to enjoy things like coffee, tea, and wine without the worry of staining or fading. With proper patient care and continued regular dental exams and cleanings, most patients can expect their veneers to last for decades without having to be replaced. Of course, things in life can happen, just as things can happen to any natural tooth (cavity, chip, etc.) but typically this will involve a simple repair or a new single veneer placement.

Full smile makeovers of your teeth with veneers will give you the smile of your dreams and enhance your entire facial beauty. Single veneers, on the other hand, can be used to repair a flawed tooth or teeth that have always bothered you.

I would love to see you at the office to show you a smile simulation of what veneers can do for you!

Lumineers – Ultra Thin, Beautiful, Speedy Veneers

Did you know that you can painlessly transform the size, shape, color and strength of your teeth with Lumineers?

Lumineers are an ultra thin and comfortable form of dental veneer that is applied seamlessly over the fronting of your teeth for a bright, beautiful, natural looking smile.

There are many differences between Lumineers and traditional veneers. We encourage you to take a few moments to look some of them over below and ask us any questions you may have at your next visit.

What are dental veneers?

Veneers are tooth-colored beautiful ceramic shells that are custom made and applied to the surface of your teeth. They are typically used cosmetically or as a quicker more esthetic form of straightening teeth.  Veneers are used to fix the size, shape and/or color of teeth that have undesirable defects like staining, chips, gaps or mild crowding.

How are Lumineers different from normal veneers?

Traditional veneers require the dentist to prepare and remove approximately 0.5 mm of enamel from the tooth’s surface before application using permanent adhesive. Because the procedure can be sensitive, standard veneers are typically applied under local anesthetic delivery (numbing).  While the veneer is being created, the teeth that were prepared must be covered with another material (temporary veneer) to protect the sensitive tooth.

Applying Lumineers is practically painless.  In most situations Lumineers is an anesthetic-free process that is done without the need for grinding down the tooth’s surface before placement. Lumineers do not typically require a temporary cover for the teeth during the fabrication of the Lumineer, as they are left intact, healthy and strong.

Lumineers are made from a specific type of porcelain called Cerinate. Because they are ultra-thin and highly translucent, they replicate the natural appearance of enamel very effectively. Lumineers are durable and resistant to wear, remaining resilient for over 20 years.
