Changing smiles can mean changing lives. Not all cosmetic dentistry has to be porcelain veneers. Many cases can be dramaticallly changed through whitening of the teeth and then some bonding to correct defects or spaces. The above case exemplifies the beautiful results that can be obtained using artistic skills required for bonding. In most cases, including this, no anesthetic was necessary and patients can leave with a rejuvinated smile in one visit. One of the new products that further enhances the esthetic and artistic dentist ability and scope of bonding options is Empress Direct. The shade range and various opalescences even allows for repair of some veneers and crowns. The polishablity of this product can mimic the shine of natural teeth. If you have any questions about esthetic dental care, please feel free to contact the office of Ronald W. Konig DDS, FAGD, LVIF at 713-668-2289.
