IMPROVING UNNATURAL LOOKING VENEERS

What is Veneer Replacement?

If you have had veneers placed in the past and are unhappy with the way they look, you can have veneer replacement done. This procedure involves removing the unnatural-looking veneers and replacing them with new veneers. The veneers that are created for you are custom-made to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth, providing you with a full, beautiful smile. Dental veneers can last for up to 10 years before they will need to be professionally replaced.

Why should you Replace Unnatural-Looking Veneers?

When veneers look unnatural, they can take away from the beauty of your smile. You might feel embarrassed to smile because of the way that the veneers look. The veneers may even be uncomfortable if they were not placed correctly. It’s not uncommon for old, poorly-placed veneers to get in the way of talking, eating, and chewing.

What makes you a good candidate for Veneer Replacement?

If you do not like the way that your older veneers look, it’s time to consider full veneer replacement. We work with all types of veneers and are able to fully remove the old ones to replace them with new ones. The new veneers are custom-made to look like the rest of your teeth while enhancing your smile, giving you natural-looking results.

What can you expect when having Veneer Replacement done?

You will first need to come in for a consultation with Dr. Andrew Turchin who will perform an exam and look at the old veneers. You will then have the older veneers carefully removed. The teeth are filed down underneath to remove excess cement and to prepare the surface for new veneers. Impressions are made to create your new veneers and a tooth color match is taken. The new veneers will be created for you and you’ll need to come back in to have them placed. The veneers are placed on the fronts of your teeth and filed down to look completely natural.

If you want or need to have unnatural-looking veneers replaced, call our office and we can get you in for a full consultation appointment.

What is Facial Rejuvenation?

What is Facial Rejuvenation?

Facial rejuvenation involves the complete and total reconstruction of your teeth and bite. For many patients, the way that their teeth are positioned as well as the positioning of their bite and jaw will affect their facial muscles. This can cause you to look older than you feel and put a damper on your self-esteem. Facial rejuvenation is designed to enhance your smile and bite so that wrinkles and deep-set lines are diminished.

Why might you need Facial Rejuvenation?

You might need facial rejuvenation if you’re unhappy with the way that both your teeth and face look. Facial rejuvenation not only perfects the overall look and quality of your teeth, but it can put your jaw in a better position to fight wrinkles and fine lines. Facial rejuvenation can completely transform the way that you look. It is done in conjunction with a smile makeover when having work done in our office.

What makes you a candidate for Facial Rejuvenation?

Before facial rejuvenation treatment can begin, you’ll need to come into our office for a consultation. If you have an uneven or misaligned bite or if you have teeth that protrude or are missing entirely, facial rejuvenation can be a viable option. The procedure involves correcting your smile with the help of smile makeover procedures so that you feel better about the way that you look. Facial rejuvenation is ideal for patients of all ages and can be suitable for those who would like to avoid the risks of plastic surgery.

What can you expect during the procedure for Facial Rejuvenation?

If you’re interested in facial rejuvenation, it is important to come into our office for an exam and consultation. During the exam, Dr. Andrew Turchin will examine all of your teeth as well as your facial structure. He will determine what work needs to be done in order to correct facial muscle positioning and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Several different procedures may be necessary to achieve the desired effect. You can feel confident in your appearance when having facial rejuvenation performed.

How Can You Slow Facial Aging?

How can you Slow Facial Aging?

Every person ages differently and at varying rates. However, certain dental-related conditions can actually make you look older beyond your years. If teeth are missing or are sloped inward or awkwardly, the facial muscles sink in to accommodate the underlying structure. This can create deep-set lines and wrinkles as well as a sunken-in appearance. With the help of both Botox injections as well as correcting the position of your teeth, we will be able to create a more youthful-looking face.

Why might you want to Slow Facial Aging?

If you appear older than you are, this can have an effect on your confidence. Unfortunately, not even the best facial creams or serums will work if your teeth and bite are to blame for premature aging. The only way to correct this problem is with a complete smile makeover. The makeover helps your teeth sit more evenly and bulks out the cheeks so that they appear more youthful.

What makes you a candidate for Facial Aging Prevention?

If you’re ready to prevent or slow down the aging process, it’s time to come in for a consultation. Most people who want to have a smile makeover to slow down the aging process are eligible for these procedures. However, a consultation and examination are required prior to having work done. Depending on the amount of work that is needed, you can have a fully rejuvenated look in a matter of weeks or months.

What can you expect with the procedure to Slow Facial Aging?

The first step is to come in for a consultation with Dr. Andrew Turchin. He will examine the teeth and conduct a treatment plan that is specifically designed to fill in and correct facial structures. You will be told what needs to be done as part of your smile makeover. It is important to come in and have the work done in order for it to be successful. You are in complete control over the smile makeover and we will work in conjunction with your budget and availability.

If you would like to put a stop to or slow down the facial aging process, call our office and our helpful staff members can further assist you.

What is Tooth Replacement?

What is Tooth Replacement?

When you are completely missing one or more of your teeth, it can affect the way that your smile both looks and functions. If left untreated, surrounding teeth can begin to shift and result in overcrowding and misalignment. There are a multitude of different tooth replacement options including dental implants, fixed bridges, and partial dentures. Each of these options is designed to fully replace the tooth to create a more even, full smile.

Why might you need Tooth Replacement?

You may want or need a tooth replacement if you are completely missing one or more of your natural teeth. By having tooth replacement done, your smile is more uniform and there is a decreased chance of the surrounding teeth shifting around. We can help to decipher which replacement option is best suited to your needs. We are able to work within a budget that is affordable for you so that you can receive the treatment that you need.

Who is a good candidate for Tooth Replacement?

Anyone who is completely missing one or more of their teeth is eligible for complete tooth replacement. However, depending on your medical history and your dental needs, you may need to have a different type of treatment done. For instance, someone with poor bone density or has a disease that affects their body’s ability to heal may not be suitable for dental implant surgery and will instead be provided with a dental bridge.

What is the procedure like for Tooth Replacement?

The first step to having a tooth completely replaced is to come in for a consultation with our dentist. Dr. Andrew Turchin will examine the area and determine the best option for you. You are in complete control over how and when you want the tooth to be replaced, since we work with varying budgets. Our goal is to provide you with a full, beautiful smile that you can feel confident showing off.

What Exactly are Dental Crowns?

What exactly are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a type of restoration that is meant to improve the integrity and strength of a tooth. If a tooth has been compromised in any way, you may be told that it will need to be crowned. Crowns last for many years and look and even feel like real teeth. The dental crown procedure is done quickly and easily in our office by Dr. Andrew Turchin.

Why might you need a Dental Crown?

You may need to have a dental crown placed if one or more of your teeth have been compromised. The tooth’s integrity and overall functionality may have diminished, so a crown can build up the tooth and restore it to its natural beauty and size. Some of the reasons you may be told you need a dental crown include:

  • A tooth has severe decay
  • A tooth has cracked, fractured or broken
  • A tooth has recently had a root canal

What are the benefits of a Dental Crown?

A dental crown will restore a compromised tooth to its original size. This improves the appearance of your smile and makes the tooth more functional. Crowns are durable and made using high-quality materials that are matched to the natural color of your teeth. You can feel confident that your new dental crown will last for many years and provide you with a smooth, even bite. Crowns can be placed on back teeth as well as front teeth, wherever they might be needed. They are custom-made for each patient to create a unique, personalized look.

What is the procedure for having a Dental Crown placed?

You will first come in for a consultation and exam with Dr. Andrew Turchin. Dr. Andrew Turchin will determine if a crown is the right choice for you. You will then be scheduled for the procedure. The area that will be receiving the crown will be numbed for your comfort. You will then have the tooth filed down to remove decay and to shape the tooth to make room for the crown. Impressions are taken and sent to a lab where the permanent crown is made for you. You will go home the same day with a temporary crown for aesthetic and functional purposes. You will come back into the office to have the permanent crown placed and filed down for a more even fit. With proper hygiene and routine dental care, your brand-new crown will last for up to a decade before it will need to be removed and replaced.

If you would like to have a dental crown placed, you can call us now to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience.

Patient Testimonials

Dr. Andrew Turchin is, by far, the best dentist I have ever been to, and I have been to many in my lifetime. He spent an inordinate amount of time with me, reviewing the health of every tooth. More importantly I have had TMJ since my 20’s and no dentist has ever addressed my bite, the root cause of my jaw issues. He convinced me that I needed to address this now, as well as the aging crowns in my mouth and the lack of strength in my front teeth caused by many fillings over the years. He listened to my fears, and my concerns. He differed with me when it was important to, but heard what would make me happy. He is a master craftsman! I had over 12 old crowns replaced and had 6 new crowns put in. My temporaries were honed so well that they could have been the permanents! He made me feel that no step or adjustment was too small for him to solve–he even followed up with phone calls to see how I was doing after each visit! Now with my “new teeth” I have had people comment on my skin, my hair, my weight..just about everything but my teeth. Friends and family comment on how good I look but cant figure out exactly what the change is. I love it that way. I did not want to look like I had a false white toothed smile that one could see from across the room. I still look totally like myself but better. I would highly recommend Dr. Turchin and his entire team! In fact, I have, to many friends! I can’t believe I actually took the step to fix all of my teeth issues and now I am so glad I did. I totally trust his advice. He is truly a master of his craft! Oh, and by the way…NO jaw pain after three months!
