Minimally Invasive Veneers Dramatically Change Smiles


Unhappy with your smile, but unsure of which procedure is best for you? Fortunately, there are various conservative cosmetic treatment options available to patients, according to a study in the November 2007 issue of General Dentistry, the AGD's clinical, peer-reviewed journal. One such treatment option is minimally invasive porcelain veneers.

Minimally invasive porcelain veneers are very thin and designed to cover the surface of the teeth to which they are applied. With this type of veneer, tooth structure is left intact and only altered when necessary.

"Minimally invasive veneers help patients conserve their enamel, which is a big attraction," comments AGD spokesperson, Eugene L. Antenucci, DDS. With traditional veneers, an anesthetic is required and the treatment is not reversible. "Both traditional and minimally invasive porcelain veneers are highly esthetic, and can be expected to offer years of wear," according to Dr. Antenucci.

With all of the available treatment options for people who are unhappy with their smiles, it might be difficult to choose which one is best for an individual. Howard E. Strassler, DMD, lead author of the study, advises patients who are considering esthetic treatment to "undergo a comprehensive clinical examination that includes an esthetic evaluation.

Masking mild to moderate tooth discolorations, correcting minor misalignments and rotation of anterior teeth, and reshaping peg-shaped and undersized teeth are just a few of the possible improvements minimally invasive porcelain veneers may provide. People who are interested in this option should talk to their dentist about the best choice for their teeth. "Each case needs to be evaluated [to decide] if a minimally invasive porcelain veneer is right for the clinical condition," says Dr. Strassler.

Common misconceptions about minimally invasive porcelain veneers: • Minimally invasive porcelain veneers will make teeth look too big or too long. In almost all cases, some tooth reshaping is necessary to allow the teeth and smile to look better than the smile the patient started with. • Minimally invasive porcelain veneers can lead to gum disease. The dentist will finish and polish edges to avoid ledges and to make the veneers smooth. As with all teeth, patients should brush and floss around the veneers. • There will be sensitivity after having veneers bonded. With minimally invasive veneers, since the tooth enamel is maintained, there is no sensitivity.

A gum re-contouring procedure can be used to reveal more of your front teeth. Gingivectomy / ginigivoplasty is where the gum tissue is surgically excised. This procedure that sculpts your gum line can be painlessly done using lasers also.At times the underlying bone can also be contoured if required. After a very comfortable pain free healing period, laminates or veneers can be done to alter the mal aligned or misshapen teeth and restore not only your smile but your self confidence back!!

The other procedure is a lip lowering procedure.The lip lowering technique modifies the area where the upper lip and the gum tissue conjoin. Using a minor periodontal surgical procedure, the upper high lip line is just repositioned or lowered. The outcome is surely very dramatic and rewarding of course!!

The other non-surgical approach to this is to go the "BOTOX WAY" This simple procedure is where small amount of BOTOX is injected on each side of your lip.This weakens the hyperactive muscles and reduce the elevation of your upper lip, thereby reducing your inhibiting gummy smile.Your new smile will last for about four to six months helping you make up for the time you lost trying to hide your smile!!

So from a little invasive procedure to a non- invasive procedure, lasers to botox, Aesthetica offers you an array of absolute pain free treatment options for your gummy smile!!!!
