Cosmetic dentistry has been known to change lives. Is it something you have considered for yourself? Enhancing a person’s ability or willingness to smile with an attractive smile is one of the most gratifying parts of dentistry. Our patients feel the impact in both their work and personal lives.
Dr. Erpenbach can create or restore a just-like-new luster to your smile with a cosmetic procedure using custom-designed porcelain veneers. A veneer is a thin ceramic shell which simulates a tooth perfectly. Applied by an experienced dentist like Dr. Erpenbach, porcelain veneers can create a new smile, covering chips, gaps or stained teeth. His procedure includes selecting restorations that complement your skin tone, facial features and personality along with hand-crafted restorations by experienced ceramists using Dr. Erpenbach’s exact specifications.
In some cases, Dr. Erpenbach may suggest DURAthins, a type of minimal-preparation veneer that is designed to require no enamel reduction, which is consistent with Dr. Erpenbach’s biomimetic approach of building up teeth rather than cutting or drilling them down. With less or no preparation compared to traditional veneers, DURAthins cover front teeth to create uniformity. This uniformity includes a bright, white appearance that is adjusted perfectly for the patient. Some no-prep veneers can look bulky, but DURAthins are among the most aesthetic available. Some other brands of no prep veneers can look bulky or unnatural, and are not the right smile makeover procedure for everyone, so Dr. Erpenbach will evaluate your smile before making any recommendations.
