  • The Face of Smile Makeovers: Dr. John A.Weierbach, II

    A smile is the first thing people notice about each other, according to many studies, says Lancaster’s Dr. John Weierbach. He should know—not only is he a dentist specializing in cosmetic dentistry, but he is also a prosthodontist, a specialist in complex dental cases. Simply put, “we create a lot of smile makeovers—it’s our specialty,” he explains.

    In practice for more than 25 years, Weierbach says the most important part of his practice is listening to patients and addressing their concerns. “Through diagnosis work and a report of findings, we give patients options, including financial options,” he says. “We want to do work that stands the test of time, is comfortable, and looks beautiful and natural.”

    Services range from porcelain veneers and crowns to whitening, dental implants, and dentures. Weierbach also treats patients with sleep apnea and TMJ disorders including bruxism, and can create custom appliances. Highly specialized work includes patients with cleft lip and palate, as well as full mouth reconstruction.

    Weierbach credits his education at the University of Pennsylvania “from some of the great masters” with providing a foundation in “very sound principles that last over time.” Additionally, he considers himself a lifetime learner, keeping up with cutting-edge digital technology in order to better serve his patients.

    “Co-treatment” is the approach he takes—“It’s the patient, myself and our awesome team, all working together to get to the end result,” he says. “Patients often become like family; you create a bond.”

    Weierbach recalls the case of a recent patient who had undergone bariatric surgery and lost close to 100 pounds. With her high school reunion coming up, she wanted to improve her smile. “Her teeth were very discolored and broken down. We did some temporary crowns digitally…she looked in the mirror, said she felt beautiful, and started weeping. We get that a lot…but making patients happy and seeing them smile…it never gets old.”
