Porcelain Laminate Veneers Done Right
Q: I have considered getting veneers, but am not sure if being near eighty years old makes my teeth too brittle to withstand the procedure. What is your opinion?
A: I get this question a lot for just about any type of dental work. Age is not a contraindication for any type of dental work. Who is getting implants, crowns, and cosmetic dentistry? Hint: It’s not 20 year olds! Many of our veneer, implant and smile make-over patients are in their seventies and eighties.
In a recent book I read, Invisible Influence by Berg, the author explains how hidden factors influence our decisions in making purchases and life decisions in general. For example, we run a lot further on the treadmill at the gym when there are joggers on adjacent to us vs. when we are all alone. On Sunday I was swimming laps at a pool alone. A fit women jumped into my lane in a bikini and asked if she can share my lane. I actually wanted to say no, but she had already jumped right in! I wound up swimming for double the amount of time that I normally swim just from the psychological component of having a “competitor” in the pool!
NYU professor Ken Magid DDS states: “Match.com did a study, and they found that the single most important attribute when somebody looks at a potential date is their smile.” A recent patient of ours said it was the “single greatest business decision he had made.” He then told us he was in sales and won an award for being the number one Rolls Royce salesperson in the world the year after his work was done!
What we do differently:
- Digital mock-ups: give us your favorite celebrity’s photo for planning the design of your smile.
- Virtually painless injections with the Dental Vibe and Vibraject.
- No-Goop-to Gag, digital impression scanning with iTero Element.
- We use the same dental lab ceramist who does many top golfers and celebrities you see on TV every day.
- Custom temporary veneers made by me that you wear for three weeks which allows for your critique, before the final ones are made.
