This great patient of ours already had a wonderful smile, but it always bothered him that his front teeth showed dark spaces. Using strong, thin “no-prep” cosmetic porcelain veneers, Dr. Lutwin was able to solve this problem for him and do so without any shots or drilling. “No-prep” porcelain veneers are a great, conservative way to address certain cosmetic concerns, and worked well to take this patient's smile from good to awesome!
This athlete had cracked and chipped his teeth from lots of hard play! He felt it was time to do something about that and also fix the large space between his teeth which always bothered him.

Dr. Lutwin was able to do so using very conservative techniques, with only very minimal adjustment of the patient’s natural teeth. Now happily married, this patient is thrilled with his new smile.
