Expert Advice from Dr. Dmitry Gorbatov

Hello, my dear friends. Today we’re going to talk about when it’s time to change your old restorations, whether veneers or crowns, and the reasons for doing so. My name is Dr. Dmitry Gorbatov, and I’ve been practicing cosmetic and holistic dentistry for more than 30 years right here on South Ocean Drive in Hollywood, Florida.

Signs It’s Time to Change Old Restorations

So, when do we know it’s time to change old restorations? Here are a few indicators:

  • Gum Retraction: If you notice gum recession around your restoration, whether it’s a crown or a veneer, it’s a sign to consider a change. This often happens due to possible leakage underneath the restorations. Bacteria can create a home under the restorations, causing the margins to darken and the gums to recede due to chronic inflammation.
  • Chipped Teeth or Crack Lines: Any visible damage, such as chipped teeth or crack lines in the restorations, indicates the need for replacement.
  • Cosmetic Upgrades: Even if your veneers are relatively recent, say five or six years old, there might be a need for change. Sometimes, initial cosmetic work might not fully meet your expectations or aesthetic goals. At Gorbatov Dentistry, we take a comprehensive approach to smile design, using advanced techniques to create a beautiful, customized appearance.

Upgrading Your Smile

If you have veneers that you’ve been wearing for around 10 years and you like them but feel ready for an upgrade, we can help. We specialize in crafting stunning smiles by repositioning teeth, elongating the smile, and using high-quality ceramics to ensure you look your best.

Even if you are currently satisfied with your restorations but think there’s room for improvement, come to us. We offer personalized solutions to enhance your smile, giving you that “Wow” factor every time you look in the mirror.
