Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

What is a veneer?
A veneer is a thin porcelain shell bonded on top of the natural tooth. It is approximately a half millimeter thick, roughly the same as a baby’s fingernail. The natural tooth requires minimal preparation—sometimes none at all. With a veneer there’s no dark line above the tooth, which is often the case
with a crown. A crown—or cap—covers the entire tooth and reduces it to a peg. Preparation for veneers is more conservative than for crowns and requires a less invasive procedure. For all of these reasons, veneers are the treatment of choice at Rosenthal Apa Group.
How long do porcelain veneers last—and will they stain like natural teeth?
Veneers should last from 10 to 15 years, sometimes longer. They’re significantly more resistant to stain and discoloration and, unlike your natural teeth, maintain their brightness and luster for many years.
What is a Smile Makeover?
A Smile Makeover is a change in the lower third of a patient’s face. By widening the smile and building out the teeth (perhaps by lengthening them, adding more anatomy and translucency) using veneers, we can create a more dynamic smile that in some cases slightly fills out the lips and provides the patient with a fuller, more youthful appearance. It is similar to a facelift from the nose down—without the scalpel.
What is the time commitment for a Smile Makeover?
Generally, it takes two visits, 7–10 days apart, with a short 20-minute follow-up to apply finishing touches like contouring and polishing.
Does the Smile Makeover look natural?
Yes, a Smile Makeover will look totally natural and be undetectable—friends will simply think you returned from a vacation looking refreshed. Often, lips
begin to sag over time and lose their elasticity. Because their primary support comes from the teeth, by widening and lengthening those teeth, lips appear more youthful. Based on the patient’s age, skin tone, and gender, teeth color and shape are selected to enhance the appearance from the nose down. The procedure is non-invasive and the result looks natural.
