Beautiful smile, beautiful you!

An attractive smile is very important. It is one of the first things people notice. Many patients report experiencing positive life changes after veneers to enhance their smile. A youthful smile is one of the best ways to slow down the appearance of aging. In the past, to give someone a “ Hollywood ” smile meant placing caps on their teeth. This required cutting the teeth to small stumps, the caps then being placed over the dental veneers teeth. This can give a great result; however it is a very invasive treatment requiring local anesthesia, temporary crowns, several visits and an increased chance of complications such as the necessity of root canal.

Then as cosmetic dentistry progressed, a new procedure using porcelain veneers came onto the scene. Porcelain veneers required less preparation than for a cap, with only the outer portion of the tooth having to be prepared. However, about 1.5 mm of tooth still had to be removed to make room for the porcelain. Local anesthesia, as well as temporary veneers, was still needed. Nevertheless, this procedure was less invasive than for a cap, and there chances of needing a root canal were diminished.
