Smile Design and Correction
Your smile represents you
A new smile is attractive only when it looks natural. It needs to fit your personality. What makes something attractive? It comes down to balance and proportion. We design your smile using a natural law of beauty called Golden Proportion.
Golden Proportion means that your smile will have the natural shape, size and contour to fit your face and how your jaw functions. If your teeth are worn down, we will use our sophisticated cosmetic dentistry techniques to give you that natural look back.
The golden proportion is a mathematic relationship found throughout nature. It is used as a starting point when designing your smile. The golden proportion rule dictates the amount of tooth surface that should be visible when viewed from the front, and will make your smile appear balanced.
Principles of Smile Design
- Easily fabricated with minimal tooth preperation
- After it is bonded to a sturdy tooth it becomes very strong and durable
- Enhances your appearance for a long time, typically up to 10 years with proper care and precautions
- Porcelain veneers appear realistic they are glass-like and translucent, an advantage over other types of cosmetic dental bonding mimicking the light handling characteristics of enamel when the veneer is bonded to the tooth
If you dream of having a perfect smile, but the thought of having veneers applied to your teeth makes you wince in pain, you’ll be happy to know there is a new, pain-free alternative to help you get a fantastic looking smile.
This new dental discovery is called Lumineers™ by Cerinate®. Described as “smile shapers”, Lumineers are ultra-thin, super translucent porcelain that is non-invasively applied to teeth for a natural looking smile that fits every individual. Anyone with “needle-phobia” can breathe easy. Lumineers can be applied without the use of anesthesia, so no shots are required.
But how do Lumineers differ from the traditional porcelain veneers that dentists have been using for years? Typically, most veneers require that your dentist grind down sensitive tooth structure for a good fit. Not so with Lumineers, as there is no cutting or grinding of teeth in almost all cases.
Another bonus is that this new procedure generally calls for just two visits to your dentist, and no uncomfortable temporaries while you wait for your Lumineers to be created. There is no post-procedure discomfort or sensitivity, which means Lumineers look and feel natural as soon as you step out of your dentist’s chair.
Lumineers can even be a more comfortable and time-saving solution for adults who are considering braces. If your bite problem isn’t severe, Lumineers will change the shape and alignment of your teeth, making them look straighter and more uniform. They will also help restore and strengthen teeth and aid in preventing wear over time.
Clinically proven to last up to 20 years with no shade discoloration, So now your dream of a new smile can become a reality- without pain. And that’s really something to smile about.!
