Important COVID-19 Update

As the status of COVID-19 and corresponding recommendations change frequently, we are doing our best to keep up and adjust our policies as quickly as possible.

Your health and the health of our staff are our top priority, and that is why we are STILL OPEN, but have implemented some new procedures to limit the number of patients coming in at any given time, screen everybody coming into the office, increase sterilization above recommended standards, and comply with the most recent recommendations from the ADA and CDC.

Our office follows strict cleaning and sterilization protocols for the protection of our patients. In addition to the continued use of hospital grade sterilization equipment in our office, we clean all contact surfaces between each appointment. We use disinfectants across the office, including frequent sanitation of the front office and patient waiting area. Our employees maintain personal hygiene as well as wearing surgical masks and washing their hands and changing their gloves between each patient.

How to Get a Hollywood Smile with Porcelain Veneers By Alicia Green on October 01, 2018

Have you ever wondered how all the movie stars seem to have a flawless smile? From the shape of their teeth to the color, not one flaw can be found? Yet when you google search old photos of them their teeth they look the exact opposite? Welcome to the wonderful world of Porcelain Veneers! Luckily for us, veneers aren’t just for the rich and the famous.

So what can veneers do for your smile?

Fix chips and cracks. Even though our natural teeth are very strong, occasionally they crack or chip.  Porcelain veneers will not only cover the chip or crack, it will prevent it any further damage to the tooth. Veneers cover any imperfections in your tooth and keep your teeth intact and healthy.

Fix misaligned, uneven, or gapped teeth without the need for traditional orthodontics. Go from crooked teeth to a perfectly straight smile in no time.

Preserve the natural tooth. Unlike porcelain crowns, which grind down the existing tooth to fit on a new porcelain crown, porcelain veneers are placed on the front of the tooth. Because more of the natural tooth is preserved, your tooth will be healthier long-term.

Give you confidence in your appearance. It’s not overly ambitious to say that getting a smile makeover with porcelain veneers will have a dramatic impact on your life. Porcelain veneers can give you the confidence to go conquer the world with your new smile.

Why would you choose veneers over regular dental bonding or other smile makeover options?

  • Durable- Porcelain is extremely strong, and is naturally resistant to chipping and cracking if properly taken care of.

  • Natural Appearance: Like real tooth enamel, high-quality porcelain has a translucent appearance, creating luster and shine.

  • Stain Resistant: Porcelain veneers do not pick up coloration from food and drinks as easily as your natural enamel, making it likely they will retain their sparkling white appearance for years.
  • Customization: Porcelain can come in practically any shade to match a patient’s surrounding teeth and their preferences. You will be able to choose the color, shape, and size of your new teeth with the help of your cosmetic dentist.

So what does the process of getting veneers entail?

Your dentist will need to ‘trim’ off a very thin layer of enamel to make room for your new veneers. White the amount will vary person to person normally only 0.5-.07 millimeters of enamel is removed from the tooth. Your dentist will also remove and replace any old fillings if needed.This is to ensure the porcelain correctly bonds to the tooth and the filling.

You and your dentist will select the shape and color of your new veneers. Usually the shade is chosen to match your surrounding teeth. If you are wanting to go whiter, make sure to whiten your teeth before getting veneers. Once your veneers are in place you can’t change the color.

Once your teeth have been trimmed your dentist will take an impression of your teeth. This impresion creates an image of your jaw and teeth which will help your dentist create your new veneers. If necessary a temporary veneer is placed, since it will take a week or two for the permanent veneers to be created.

Once your new veneers are ready you will return to your dentist’s office to have them fitted and bonded. A gel is etched onto the tooth then removed creating a surface for the veneer to bond to. The color shade you and your dentist have chosen is then placed inside the veneer and then the veneer is put onto your tooth. A light is then held over the tooth to finalize the bonding. This process is repeated until all of your veneers are bonded. Your dentist will then clean up any remaining bonding agent, polish the veneers, and floss. Your smile is now complete!
