Veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic (porcelain) or a composite resin material, which are bonded to the front of teeth. This procedure requires little or no anesthesia and can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Veneers are placed to mask discolorations, to brighten teeth and to improve a smile.


Why veneers?

Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations. They provide a much more conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color, size or shape. Veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline and damage due to an injury or as a result of a root-canal procedure. They are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider veneers. Generally, veneers will last for many years, and the technique has shown remarkable longevity when properly performed.



Injectable wrinkle fillers can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional face lift costs. Most will fill lines and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from four months to more than a year.
Injectable wrinkle fillers, unlike Botox injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, fill the line or crease with one of several different substances. As a result, the line or crease seems to have nearly disappeared.

Common uses for Hyaluronic Acid fillers include:

  • Wrinkle correction
  • Diminishing worry lines, smile lines, marionette lines at corners of the mouth, and smoker’s lines
  • Diminishing worry lines, smile lines, marionette lines at corners of the mouth, and smoker’s lines
  • Lip enhancement
  • Reducing the severity of nasolabial folds
  • Chin augmentation
  • Filling cheek depressions
  • Redefining lip border
  • Softening acne scars

Are they safe?

Dermal fillers have been used as a nonsurgical option for facial rejuvenation for more than 2 decades. Complications and side effects associated with these products are extremely rare. Any side effects are generally short term and usually mild (mostly minor swelling and/or bruising, redness).

What should I expect?

A topical anesthetic may be used. After cleansing the skin, the filler is injected in small amounts using a very fine needle. Most clients are carrying on relaxed conversation during the entire process. Periodically, the doctor may pause and let you see your progress in a mirror, which helps alleviate the anxiety of wondering “Will it look natural?”. A cold pack may be applied to a region once the injection is completed. There will be some degree of swelling (minimal in some, modest in others) which resolves over a day or two in most cases. Occasionally minor swelling and redness will persist longer in a region but will resolve over time. This is particularly true if bruising occurs. The filler will feel firm at first, but will soften over the course of 2 weeks at which point it feels very natural.

How long will it last?

6 months to 1 year in general. It may vary slightly from one filler to another, but more importantly it varies depending on where the filler is placed. Filler placed in hyperdynamic regions like the lips will disappear more quickly that that same filler when it is placed in a more static region such as the cheek. At some point you will want a touch up injection (perhaps at the 6 to 9 month stage for example) to maintain the full volume correction you have enjoyed previously. Touch up injections do not necessarily involve the same amount of filler and thus may be less expensive than your original fill .
