About Me

A Brand New Smile

This 30-year-old patient was unhappy with the alignment and length of her discolored, mottled, misshapen teeth. Dr. Jan Linhart used a Biolase Waterlase MD Turbo™ laser to sculpt her gums, and after a smile design wax-up was made, 10 custom porcelain veneers were placed to create a healthier, brighter, more attractive smile.

FAQ's

Q. How does fixing the teeth give you fuller lips?

What our experts say:

Fixing your upper teeth MAY give you fuller lips, depending on what is done. If you have sunken teeth that are tilted back, placing porcelain veneers to bulk the teeth out can certainly support your lip and create a much more beautiful smile. However, if you are not moving the position of the front of your teeth, then it will likely not affect your lips. One way that creating a new smile almost certainly affects your mouth is that the dead space between your teeth and the corners of your mouth can be filled, making a wider, more beautiful smile. In addition, with a new smile, lip work can also be done to create a beautiful, natural result!

Q. What are dental implants and when are they used?

What our experts say:

Dental implants are titanium screws that are placed into the jaw to replace missing teeth. The implant serves as the root, or support of the tooth, and a crown is placed on the implant to replace the visible part of the tooth. When a tooth is missing, whether from decay, trauma, or if it never grew in the first place, an implant is a great replacement. Typically, implants are completed in three stages: 1.) The implant itself is inserted into the jawbone and left 3-6 months to integrate with the bone. 2.) The implant is uncovered and an impression is taken for the crown. 3.) The crown is either screwed into the implant directly, or an abutment (post) is screwed into the implant and a crown cemented over it. Alternatives to implants are a bridge or a removable appliance/denture. Multiple implants can also be placed when all teeth on the upper or lower jaw are missing and the implants can support a full arch of false teeth!

Q. What is the difference between bonding and veneers? What do they correct? When should each be used?

What our experts say:

Dental bonding and porcelain veneers are two different ways to achieve a similar result. Typically, veneers and/or bonding are used to correct misaligned, discolored, and chipped/broken teeth. Anywhere from a single tooth to many teeth can be covered with veneers or bonding. The color can be made whiter, shape restored to beauty, and a new, beautiful smile can be created.

A veneer is a porcelain facing that is bonded to the front, visible surface of a tooth. Usually the tooth is prepared .5-1mm on the front surface, and a porcelain veneer is then bonded to the tooth to transform how it looks. Often, 8-10 veneers are done on a single arch (top or bottom) to create a completely new, rejuvenated smile. Most veneers are custom made in a dental laboratory by a skilled technician so that they can be made to be as perfect and beautiful as possible. If bonded correctly, veneers can last anywhere from 10-25 years or more!

Cosmetic bonding, while achieving a similar end goal to veneers, is a different process. For bonding, the tooth/teeth are typically lightly prepared by roughening the visible surface, and then a new visible surface is built up using composite, the same material used for white fillings. As with veneers, a single tooth can be bonded, or multiple teeth bonded to transform a smile. Unlike a veneer that is made by a lab technician outside the mouth, bonding is placed by the dentist inside the mouth and then shaped with a drill inside the mouth. Bonding is typically much more difficult to make ideal. In addition, bonding can discolor over time and is much more delicate than porcelain. Cosmetic bonding usually lasts from 5-10 years, and is most often replaced because it does not hold up cosmetically.

Thus, veneers are a much longer, more stable way to beautify a smile as they do not change color and are more robust porcelain. While bonding tends to not last as long and can stain over time, usually bonding is chosen over veneers because of cost, however when considering the 10-20 year prognosis, the costs end up being similar.
