For patients whose natural teeth are healthy, but might look a little rough from age, stains, medications, or occupational hazards, we offer a solution that can change your smile dramatically. Porcelain veneers are super-thin pieces of porcelain that we design to your specifications. You can get a whole new look! The process is easy, fast, long-lasting, and comfortable.
The main difference between porcelain veneers and minimal-prep veneers is that the minimal-prep variety can be removed. Minimal-prep veneers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain that go over your teeth with a minimum of preparation. And while these may be removed if a patient desires, they are also a long-lasting solution. We use the Durathin brand.
Sometimes smile beautification begins with a lot of restorative work. That’s what a full-mouth restoration is. Whether you need some of your teeth to be removed or replaced, or just several fillings, we will create a restoration plan that ends with your bright, healthy smile.
Whenever a tooth is broken close to the gumline or severely damaged, we may need to perform a crown lengthening to expose enough of the tooth to hold a crown. Sometimes, this procedure is also necessary to create harmony or balance in a smile.
Gummy is not a word we want to hear people use to describe smiles. But there is a solution. Gum recontouring is a process by which we actually reshape the gum in order to expose more of the tooth. This is a simple and relatively comfortable procedure that can offer dramatic results.
This is a simple process wherein we use tooth-colored material to fill in cracks, gaps, or chips in your teeth. Not only will it make your smile more fabulous, it will protect your teeth from bacteria by eliminating places for them to hide, grow, and cause cavities.
This may seem like a strange analogy, but tooth recontouring is almost like sculpting. People’s teeth wear over time or sometimes have natural patterns of unevenness or slight overlapping that is both unattractive and could house bacteria. With tooth recontouring, Dr. Antalis artfully reshapes your teeth to reveal your most beautiful smile.
We offer both in-office and at-home whitening products from KoR. In-office whitening is completed in about an hour and can provide dramatic results – up to eight shades brighter in one appointment. Take-home whitening makes use of custom trays that you wear for 15-30 minutes each day to make your smile its sparkly brightest.
