How we make our U-Smile-Veneers™

Everyone wants a beautiful SMILE. In my experience as a cosmetic surgeon, many patients seek to improve on their looks with things like breast implants and face lifts, but when they smile their teeth are either crooked or stained. And of course that makes their smile less than perfect. They can afford to get plastic surgery because in the past 15 years or so more and more surgeons are offering cosmetic surgery, and many procedures have been in some ways simplified that as a result the price to have cosmetic surgery has gone down. Cosmetic dentistry however still costs several thousands of dollars. Until now.

I have designed this concept to provide affordable esthetic dental services. It begins with the dental veneers. The veneers can be manufactured using a variety of material. I have chosen to use a composite material because it is easy to work with and is durable. The veneers can be done in the same day and within the hour. The Smile Factory Veneers will hold well for at least 7 years, and most importantly and in most patients, no drilling necessary. This material will coat and attache to the surface of the tooth and can be made as thin as necessary. And the veneer is highly polished as part of the process. This is obviously a service that does not replace the need to maintain good dental hygiene and regular visits to your regular dentist. And obviously this is a superficial esthetic service that will not the replace the need for proper dental care. Our patients will be thoroughly examined. We need to make sure that the teeth and gums are healthy. We work with many neighborhood dentists and should someone need a cleaning or other traditional dental services, we will refer those patients first to make sure that we are only adding veneers to healthy gums and teeth.

Some patients may need a certain amount of contouring to their gums. This is very helpful to people with what is commonly known as a gummy smile. We use a high-powered laser to shape the gums and expose more of the teeth.

Lastly, we can blend everything together with a variety of convenient tooth whitening programs. We offer take-home tooth whitening kits, custom tray bleaching and in-office bleaching. With this people needn’t get more than the front four teeth veneered and the rest can be whitened to blend everything together.
