Imagine completely transforming something about yourself that you’ve wanted to change for decades. Imagine the sense of relief and confidence of being instantly fit or having the sharpest clothes or being six inches taller. That’s the kind of transformation Dr. Salha helps patients achieve on a regular basis with smile makeovers and veneers in NYC.
Iris hadn’t smiled in 20 years because of malocclusion, discoloration and other issues that caused her to not love her smile. She came to Dr. Salha saying she did not like the way she looked.
A One-Hour Smile Makeover
Dr. Salha was able to fit Iris with temporary restorations, seen in the “after” photos, within one hour. After decades of hiding her laughter and expressions of joy, she had the smile she’d always wanted! She would still come back to receive permanent crowns and laminates, or veneers, but Iris was able to go back out into the world the same day smiling confidently for the first time in years.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers, also called laminates, can dramatically change the size, shape, and color of any tooth with a healthy enough structure to support it. To place porcelain veneers, Dr. Salha removes some of the tooth’s enamel and places a thin layer of porcelain as needed to create the correct size, shape and color. The transformation offered by porcelain veneers is truly remarkable. Patients can have a gorgeous Hollywood smile very quickly.
What Are Porcelain Crowns?
Teeth that have fillings or decay can still be restored beautifully but may require crowns instead. A porcelain crown is similar to a porcelain veneer, or laminate, but more of the patient’s own tooth structure is removed to accommodate a crown, and an entire tooth-shaped restoration is placed over the natural tooth’s remaining portion.
A Smile She Loves
Both porcelain veneers and crowns offer the benefit of a beautiful, functional tooth that lasts. Iris’ smile makeover was so transformational for her that she tearfully hugged Dr. Salha when he was finished. It may be hard to believe, but imagine that transformation! We couldn’t be more honored to be a part of that transformation for Iris and so many other patients.
