color, tooth size, light refraction, age and skin tone, when creating your new smile.

A veneer is a thin porcelain shell bonded on top of your natural tooth. It’s about a
half millimeter in thickness, which is roughly the thinness of 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 visible with a crown. A crown, or
cap, covers the entire tooth and reduces the natural tooth to a peg. Veneers are
more conservative in preparation and require a less invasive procedure. For these
reasons, it’s the treatment of choice at The Rosenthal Apa Group whenever
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 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
looking appearance. It is similar to a facelift from the nose down – without the
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.
Generally, it takes two visits, 7-10 days apart, with a short 20-minute follow-up
to apply finishing touches like contouring and polishing.
Yes, your smile makeover will look absolutely natural and undetectable. Your friends
will think that you just returned from a vacation looking refreshed. Oftentimes the lips
begin to sag as we age and also lose their elasticity. Their primary support comes
from the teeth, so widening and lengthening the teeth lends an appearance of
youthfulness. Based on the patient’s age, skin tone, and gender, we design the
teeth, and select color and shape to enhance the appearance from the nose down.
The procedure is non-invasive and the result looks natural.
