Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. We know how important it is to ensure your smile is in the best condition possible. Over time, the brightness of your smile can be affected by things like your coffee or coke consumption habits. Or maybe you somehow chipped a tooth. You may even have slightly crooked teeth that were never corrected early on. If any of these things apply to you, veneers could be a great option! 

What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin, durable pieces of ceramic. Veneers recreate the appearance of natural teeth and their durability is reminiscent of tooth enamel. Veneers are a viable option for many patients because they provide a relatively hassle-free solution to minor issues with your smile. If you take good care of your veneers, they could last a lifetime. 

Don’t let discoloration or misshapen teeth keep you from having the smile of your dreams. Contact our office to learn more about how veneers can brighten your smile!

Veneers Can Help If You Suffer From:
• Stained Enamel
• Spaces Between Your Teeth
• Crooked/Cracked/Chipped/Misshapen Teeth


Having a bright smile is something everyone wants and it’s easier than ever to achieve. Over time, your teeth can be stained and discolored due to many things: 

• Drinking wine, soda, tea or coffee
• Eating dark colored foods
• Aging
• Certain antibiotics or antihistamines
• Dental injuries 

As a patient of Dr. Elizabeth Polinski May, you have a couple of options for teeth whitening. We have take-home bleach kits or in-office options. Both choices are guaranteed to provide the white smile you’re after should you follow our professional recommendations.

Pro Tip: It takes about two weeks to see optimum results with any teeth whitening treatment. 

Don’t hesitate when it comes to achieving your best smile yet. Call Dr. Elizabeth Polinski May today!

Have you suffered an accident or injury that caused you to lose or damage a tooth? A lost or damaged tooth can take a toll on your self-confidence and even harm your oral health. Luckily, a crown and bridge can help reinstate a full and functioning smile.


The purpose of a crown is to completely cover a damaged tooth. Not only does this help strengthen the tooth, it enhances its appearance and functionality. A crown can be useful to: 

• Prevent a weak tooth from cracking
• Cap a tooth that has experienced root canal treatments
• Cap a discolored or misshapen tooth 
• Cap a dental implant
• Attach a bridge
• Restore a fractured tooth
• Replace a filling when there isn’t enough tooth left


If you have missing teeth, the gaps in your mouth will eventually cause your other teeth to shift into the empty spaces. This causes many issues including gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Bridges can help mitigate these issues! Bridges are securely fastened to the natural teeth or implants that surround the empty space. If you have porcelain or ceramic bridges, they can be matched to the natural color of your teeth.

Dr. Polinski May will carefully evaluate your oral needs and let you know if crowns or bridges are an option for you.

If you are missing teeth, you understand how hard it can be to navigate through your daily routine. You may not want to smile as much and it could be hard to eat a balanced diet. Your speech could even suffer. Dr. Elizabeth Polinski May understands how difficult it can be if you’re missing teeth. That’s why she offers dentures and partials. 

There are several misconceptions about why people need dentures and partials. Most people think senior citizens are the only people who have a need for dentures and partials. That’s not true! People can lose their teeth at all ages for a variety of reasons:

• Sports injuries 
• Trauma to the mouth (for example, someone falling off their bike) 
• Severe tooth decay 

It’s important to understand the difference between dentures and partials. Dentures are for cases where the patient ismissing an entire row of teeth. Partials apply to patients who still have teeth remaining in their upper or lower jaw.
