Veneers are thin wafers of porcelain, carefully fabricated to fit the natural color and shape of your teeth. By bonding them to the front of your teeth, Dr. Roger Wirtz can mask stains, chips, and other minor imperfections. He can also improve the shape of your teeth and even make minor orthodontic adjustments. To place veneers, the dentist will remove a very thin layer of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the porcelain. Dr. Wirtz offers both traditional and minimal-preparation veneers, which require little to no alternation to the tooth's natural structure.
We proudly offer several types of teeth whitening to brighten your smile. During in-office treatment, Dr. Wirtz will apply a strong whitening gel to your teeth. After one 45-minute session, you could see a dramatic difference in your smile. At-home treatment can achieve similar results in approximately two weeks. If you choose to whiten your teeth at home, you will apply the gel using custom-made whitening trays. Day and nighttime kits are available. KöR® Deep Bleaching™ combines office and home-based treatment to permanently lighten internal and external stains.
If your aesthetic concerns could be addressed using porcelain veneers, but you are on a budget, dental bonding may be the best solution. During the bonding procedure, Dr. Wirtz will apply dental resin to the front of your teeth. He will carefully select the shade that matches your natural enamel, and sculpt and polish the resin so that it looks highly lifelike. With bonding, the dentist can fill in chips and cracks, close gaps between your teeth, cover stains, and more.
If a ragged gum line or excess gum tissue detracts from your smile, you may be an excellent candidate for a gum lift. During this treatment, Dr. Wirtz will remove a small amount of tissue to give you more proportionate, even gums. He works very conservatively and will carefully plan out your treatment to minimize discomfort and give you stunning results. After your procedure, your smile will look brighter and healthier, and you may even look several years younger. Gum contouring is often combined with veneers for even more comprehensive results.
If you have several aesthetic imperfections, a smile makeover may be the optimal solution for you. With this individualized treatment plan, you can combine multiple procedures to give you the beautiful smile you have always wanted. Dr. Wirtz will help you plan out your treatment based on your goals, health needs, and budget. He will even create a three-dimensional wax-up to show you what your smile will look like after your makeover.
