Veneers A veneer is a thin covering of porcelain placed on the tooth. They can be placed on any surface of the tooth for aesthetics or functional changes. When placed on the front surfaces of the front teeth, they are typically used to change shape, color, close spaces, repair extensive decay and regain correct dimensions from wear or trauma. They can block the stains from dark teeth and can also be placed on the biting surfaces of back teeth (onlays) to change the bite, restore worn tooth structure and/or decrease sensitivity. They can also be placed on the inside surfaces of certain teeth to improve the way the upper and lower jaw functions. Veneers are a predictable way to restore the proper form and function of your teeth and ultimately your smile. They can last for decades and require the same basic maintenance of natural teeth, making them a design of choice for those seeking the ultimate in the current state-of-the-art dentistry can create. Many companies are marketing the "no prep" veneers directly to the public. These can be viable and aesthetic choices in the right situations. Dr. Schulze has trained with the American Society for Clinical Research which pioneered the concept of minimal and no prep veneers, but there are limitations to its use. Cosmetic Dentures If dentures are the option you have now or the option that is appropriate for you, Dr. Schulze has the skills and the attention to detail that when he creates a set of dentures for you they can look so natural that no one except you will ever know you wear dentures. Your custom denture can be comfortable and give the support needed to your face that gives you a natural looking and more youthful appearance. An additional process many others choose is to place implants under the dentures, which has many advantages to stabilize the dentures into a very effective chewing surface. With Dr. Schulze's creative designs and a wide range of choices to attach the dentures to implants, you can not only chew through hard and sticky foods, we have the opportunity to uncover the roof of the mouth in the design, so you can regain the sense of texture and taste that traditional dentures have taken away. Enjoy the pleasures of the food you want and get rid of denture adhesives for good! Advanced Whitening Tooth whitening is an excellent means of brightening up a lifeless smile! A whiter smile can help you feel better about yourself and helps to make a better impression. Drinking cola, tea, coffee, and red wine, as well as smoking, can contribute to stained and darkened teeth. Whitening can help your smile look its best. Non-professional procedures and clinically unproven teeth whitening systems often lead to unsatisfactory results. We offer a variety of whitening procedures that are custom designed for your particular case, including Zoom! ™ as well as several different types of custom tray procedures designed to safely and effectively whiten your teeth. For those very difficult to lighten cases, or cases which have not achieved the expected results, Dr. Schulze has discovered the most powerful and effective method known to whiten those stubborn cases, the KOR™ Whitening System. Please ask about the best technique for your particular condition!
