Veneers are a wonderful cosmetic solution for darkened, broken, worn, or aged-looking front teeth. Ultra-thin pieces of porcelain are color-matched to your natural tooth, or designed to whiten and brighten your smile, then applied with a super-strong bonding agent (like glue, but different) to your prepared teeth. Teeth are prepared by gently reshaping them so that the veneer does not make your smile look bulky. Once the procedure is completed, your smile will look both beautiful and natural.
A full-mouth restoration is a course of treatment wherein we combine both restorative and cosmetic care to make your smile its absolute best. We begin with a comprehensive exam, then make individualized recommendations based on your special needs. Some of the treatments that may be part of a full-mouth restoration are implant-retained dentures, crowns, extractions, endodontics (root canals), gum therapy, and many others. If it’s been a while since you’ve seen a dentist, come talk to us.
The difference between these two procedures is subtle, but really important to the doctor performing them. Both are solutions to the problem of a “gummy” smile—that is, teeth that seem short, or out of proportion with the gum line. In crown lengthening, both soft (gum) and hard (tooth) tissues are altered. In gum recontouring, only the gum tissue is changed. Dr. Majka believes dentistry is art, so no matter which solution is right for you, your smile will be gorgeous.
We use a composite bonding material that can be individually shaded and color matched to fill in gaps, smooth cracks, and fix minor chips in teeth. We can even use composite bonding to brighten a badly stained or discolored smile! This solution lasts for years and is painless and beautiful.
When teeth are chipped or uneven, Dr. Majka can act like a sculptor and remove tiny bits of your enamel in order to create an even, harmonious smile.
This procedure is painless and lasts forever.
