PRLog - Dec. 8, 2012 - NEW YORK -- Author & celebrity dentist Dr. Catrise Austin is launching her New Year/ New Smile makeover service. The service incorporates Componeers, a more affordable alternative to traditional veneers. Normally, veneers take a few visits to the dentist office and cost between one and two thousand dollars per tooth. Componeers are placed within one visit and cost around $550 dollars per tooth.
“With Componeers, you can literally have a new smile in just one visit, just in time for the New Year without breaking the bank,” said Dr. Catrise Autin. “I learned about this new and exciting technique during Thanksgiving weekend as I attended the nation’s largest dental meeting here in New York City called The Greater New York Dental Meeting. My goal is to be THE BEST and bring my patients only the best in cosmetic dentistry, so when I learned about this new procedure, I went CRAZY! I usually don’t stand behind new products or products that seem too good to be true. But when I saw one of the top cosmetic dentists in the nation, Dr. Ross Nash teaching this course, I knew I was on to something.”
Componeers are pre-manufactured thin shells of tooth colored material that look like teeth. The thin shells come in various colors and can be sized and shaped to fit over a patient’s natural teeth. Componeers are then permanently fixed to the upper front and/or lower front teeth to conceal cosmetic imperfections such as chipped teeth, gaps, crowding, crooked teeth, stained or discolored teeth, and teeth that are too short or too long. Once applied to the teeth, they are then contoured and polished to give a clean, natural looking smile.
“We all know that imperfect front teeth can impact your self-esteem and sense of self-worth. I know this first hand as I hated my smile as a teenager,” continued Dr. Austin. “It wasn’t until I wore braces in high school to correct my smile that I started to feel beautiful and confident. The Componeer is an affordable and less time consuming alternative for my patients who are not financially prepared for porcelain veneers, or for clients who want to spend less time in the dental chair with the same outcome.”
