The No Prep Veneer Does Exist

Categories: BlogTags: , , , , , , , , , , Author:

Ten years ago the thought of the, “Prepless Veneer,” was impossible to fathom, however, thanks to new developments and materials, the no-prep veneer option has begun to emerge with cosmetic dentists incorporating the minimal preparation dental veneers into a viable treatment option.

Dr. Eddie Siman, the cosmetic dentist to the stars is one of those dentists who has had advanced training for prepless veneers giving you beautiful results that are not only stable, but also reversible.

Adding materials to your teeth to alter the way they appear is certainly not new. Teeth have always been prepared before restoration using fillings, porcelain crowns, or veneers. However, tooth reduction has always been necessary in order to restore damaged or lost natural enamel because of trauma or decay. However, before the no-prep veneer came along, it was usually necessary to remove some of the natural tooth to place a functional and aesthetic dental restoration.

When someone mentions a, “Prepless veneer,” dentists opinions can range from disbelieve to appreciation. In fact, the difference of opinion is quiet vast and with good merit. Additive only or no prep veneers make even the most experienced cosmetic dentist picture teeth that are over contoured or bulky. Unfortunately, a few years ago no prep veneers were circulated throughout the media showing bulky and thick dental restorations that caused skepticism in both consumers and cosmetic dentists.

Thankfully, there has been a paradigm shift when it comes to no prep veneers with skilled cosmetic dentists, such as Dr. Siman, who can prepare your tooth without a margin or border. When you schedule an appointment with Dr. Siman for no prep veneers, he can design and create a custom fitted dental veneer that actually feathers into your tooth just short of your gumline creating a natural looking tooth without the bulk.

Aside from what you would expect from no prep veneers, your cosmetic dentist will not place them under your gum tissue thus eliminating the risk of periodontal disease caused by cosmetic dental restorations. Thanks to modern 21st century dental technology, it is possible to place natural looking restorations without having to reduce the natural structure lying underneath the tooth that is to be restored.

Once Dr. Siman has determined your perfect Golden Rule of Proportions by designing a cosmetic dental plan for your new toothy grin. The plan may include something as simple as tooth whitening and dental bonding to something that may take more than one appointment such as porcelain veneers, orthodontics, or dental implants.

If dental bonding is what you and Dr. Siman have decided on for your first cosmetic dental procedure, the treatment can be completed in just a single appointment depending on how many teeth are involved in the dental bonding.

Tooth whitening may be used in conjunction with other cosmetic dental restorations, such as dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or dental implants. If you are having your teeth whitened keep in mind that the tooth whitening procedure, whether it is done chairside in a single appointment, or more gradually with whitening trays and a prescription whitening gel, will not cover your dental restorations. Porcelain veneers, dental bonding, tooth colored fillings cannot be whitened within professional or over the counter whitening kits. If you have teeth damaged from fluoride or tetracycline, ask your dentist about tooth whitening products that lighten from within, as most whitening products that are available from your local pharmacy will not cover those types of internal stains.

Composite Resin Bonding Could Be the Answer

According to Hollywood’s Dentist to the Stars, Dr. Eddie Siman, you do not have to spend a fortune to look like your favorite celebrity, in fact, thanks to the wonders of modern cosmetic dental technology, you can have a new smile without breaking the bank.

Composite Resin bonding was developed more than 50 years ago, and is the minimally invasive and fast option when it comes to that beautiful smile that you thought you couldn’t afford. However, not everyone is a good candidate when it comes to Composite Resin Bonding.

Composite Resin Bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that allows Dr. Siman to repair chips and cracks or fill that gap that you have always hated between your teeth.

Dr. Siman is much like a sculptor when he applies the Composite Resin Bonding to your teeth, shaping and molding it to give you the appearance of a whiter, straighter and more appealing smile.

Dr. Siman may use Composite Resin Bonding to cover the stains on your teeth that will not budge with professional tooth whitening, or he may decide to use Composite Resin Bonding to fill your teeth.

The cosmetic solution can also be used to repair chipped or cracked teeth and to replace your old silver amalgam fillings. Best of all, Composite Resin Bonding is not permanent, like Porcelain Veneers, and depending on how many teeth are being treated can be completed in a single dental appointment with Millennium Dental and Dr. Siman. Porcelain Veneers can take up to two or more visits.

The Composite Resin Bonding procedure is quite simple and can be compared to a dental filling. Depending on the reason for your Composite Resin Bonding, your dental insurance may cover the cost if the damage occurred during an accident or is part of a necessary dental procedure.

Although Composite Resin Bonding is a wonderful solution, it is not right for everyone. If you have a crooked smile, you may be better off talking to Dr. Siman about being fitted for Invisalign as Composite Resin Bonding will not fix an under bite or overbite. Bonding is normally reserved for people who are looking for an affordable cosmetic dental solution to improve their smile and their self-confidence.

If you would like more information regarding Composite Resin Bonding or any other cosmetic or general dental procedure, schedule an appointment with Dr. Siman who will be able to determine if Composite Resin Bonding, or another cosmetic dental treatment, is right for you. Call or click today.

Ask Dr. Siman about Composites and Composite Fillings

Categories: BlogTags: , , , , , , , , , Author:

According to the American Dental Association, composite fillings are used to replace old silver amalgam fillings and to repair cavities in the front of your mouth. Composite fillings are matched to your natural tooth color and can make a huge difference when it comes to your smile.

According to the dentist to the stars, Dr. Eddie Siman, composite, or white fillings are made from a mixture of glass and tooth colored plastic in order to restore damaged and decayed teeth. Composites can also be used for other cosmetic dental restorations including tooth reshaping, onlays, and inlays and to change the color of your teeth.

After a thorough examination to rule out any other issues such as gum disease, Dr. Siman will prepare your teeth for the composites by placing the composite material in layers. A special light or laser that is used to harden every layer follows each layer. Once the composite process is completed, Dr. Siman will shape the composite material to fit your tooth. After shaping, the tooth or teeth that have been restored with composite will be polished to prevent early wear and staining.

Although prices vary from dental practice to dental practice, composite resin fillings can cost more than a silver amalgam filling, however, most dental insurance companies will cover your composite filling costs equal to the cost of an amalgam filling. As composite materials improve, more and more insurance companies will most likely cover the entire cost of a composite filling.

There are several advantages when it comes to composites. Because Dr. Siman can blend the right shade to create a tooth color that matches your tooth, the only people who will know that you had a cavity in your front tooth will be you and Dr. Siman. Another advantage of composites is that because it is bonded directly to your tooth it will actually help support the rest of the natural tooth structure. This helps insulate the tooth while preventing breakages.

Some of the disadvantages of composites include sensitivity and staining. You may suffer from postoperative sensitivity after the procedure, which will go away after time. If you drink coffee, tea or enjoy other staining foods, your composites could change color. Ask Dr. Siman about clear plastic coatings that can be placed over the composites to prevent color alteration.

If you would like more information regarding composites and composite fillings, schedule an appointment with Dr. Siman who can determine if you are a good candidate for this type of dental restoration.
