LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A chip, a space or stains on teeth can seriously affect our self-confidence and how we interact with others. This is a common esthetic problem that often goes untreated due to patients' fear of painful dental procedures.
Patients need fear no more, now that noninvasive dentistry pioneer Dr. Robert Ibsen has developed the ZERO-PAIN SmileSimplicity procedure. This breakthrough cosmetic and structural restoration technique preserves original, healthy tooth structure and does not require painful shots. The SmileSimplicity procedure allows dentists to correct chips, close diastemas and whiten teeth without using anesthetic needles, drills, or temporaries.
Traditional veneer techniques involve grinding away 1 mm of natural tooth, so they require an injection and removal of significant tooth structure. Removing tooth structure can sometimes damage pulp and potentially require a root canal. With the new SmileSimplicity procedure, patients will no longer experience pain, discomfort, or sensitivity caused by conventional veneering methods.
Committed to bringing his preservative, patient-friendly SmileSimplicity technique to his colleagues, Dr. Ibsen hosts monthly continuing education (CE) webinars. These online SmileSimplicity CE courses cover a broad range of topics, including case selection, adhesion, color correction, finishing, polishing, post-orthodontic treatment, and solutions for worn and esthetically flawed dentition.
The upcoming live webinar on March 24, 2011, will focus on correcting chipped, gapped, and stained teeth with the SmileSimplicity procedure. For more information, visit www.SmileSimplicity.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (805) 346-8100.
