Dental veneers have been an option for cosmetic dentistry for almost 30 years. Veneers are thin coverings are bonded to your natural teeth and are made of either resin or porcelain material. While the resin veneers are easier to repair, their appearance is usually less natural than the veneer made of porcelain. Porcelain veneers are normally fabricated in a dental laboratory, and require two office visits. Today’s veneers are ultra-thin and require little or no removal of healthy tooth structure. Veneer are usually placed on healthy teeth, to correct qualities of the natural teeth such as discoloration, gaps between teeth, and rotated teeth. Veneer need to be treated with a degree of care, in that they can chip or become debonded.
Crowns, while made in a similar fashion to the dental veneers are intended for teeth that are in need of a more restorative procedure due to teeth being decayed or cracked. Crowns require more removal of tooth structure. The end result is very cosmetically pleasing and usually much strong that the dental veneer.
Teeth Whitening commonly known as bleaching can be accomplished in a wide degree of different techniques. From simple at home treatment such as Crest White Strips, to in office bleaching. Most bleaching technique produces a degree of tooth sensitivity, and is reversible. By reversible, we mean the maintenance bleaching must be done to keep the desired whitening result or a relapse to the natural shade will occur. Dr. Schwartz, as just one of a few Charlotte cosmetic dentists who is a provider of the KOR bleaching technique. The KOR technique produces highly desirable results for those looking for the ultimate in whitening.
Six Months Smiles is traditional orthodontic bracket and wire system that is nearly invisible. The system utilizes clear brackets and white wires and will straighten teeth to produce a cosmetic result for crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth in usually 4 to 9 months. Dr. Schwartz is an experienced Charlotte cosmetic dentist who has pleased many patients in a short timeframe with this therapy.
ClearCorrect is one of many clear aligner systems available that can produce cosmetic results. Clear aligner systems use a series of retainer type appliances in sequence to move the teeth as opposed to brackets and wires. Using clear aligners results in a longer treatment time period than Six Months Smiles, and requires strict patient compliance to wear the clear retainer no less than 23 hours a day. Dr. Schwartz is a local Charlotte dentist who is a provider of the ClearCorrect aligner technique.
