BEFORE & AFTER
Esthetic Porcelain Restorations
Porcelain Bridge: This patient came in with a very old existing bridge that was failing due to a badly decayed tooth. We discussed the option of an implant versus a bridge, and together we came to the decision that the bridge would be the better option for him. He needed an extraction and bone graft (to keep the bone from collapsing) prior to the new bridge. We were able to improve the esthetics and allow for complete healing of the infection. He now has a beautiful and healthy smile.
Porcelain Veneers: This patient was very concerned about the health of his teeth as they were getting worn down. We did a smile design consultation where we presented him with options. After discussion, the patient decided to do orthodontic treatment (braces: the position of his teeth were causing destruction to his teeth), followed by porcelain veneers. It was a long journey, but he says it was worth it!
Porcelain Veneers & Composite Veneers
Porcelain Veneers & Composite Veneers: This woman had a lot of jaw muscle and joint pain. After a full evaluation, we discovered that she had a bite function problem. For this patient, her solution was to move her teeth with braces, which allowed her muscles, jaw, and joints to be in a more comfortable position. Her upper teeth were very damaged due to her bite, so we corrected the esthetics with porcelain veneers on her four front teeth, and then composite veneers on her two canine teeth.
Porcelain Veneers: This woman spent years in braces to straighten her teeth. She had always felt her teeth were too small, and so we planned with the orthodontist to leave space between her teeth for larger veneers. We placed four porcelain veneers on her upper front four teeth. She is very pleased with her much fuller and beautiful smile.
Porcelain Bridge & Crown
Porcelain Bridge and Crown: This patient lost his upper left front tooth due to a very large and deep cavity. His two front teeth were overlapped and crowded (not enough room for both teeth). The before photo is after a temporary filling was placed on his upper right tooth to narrow the tooth to create more space for his two front teeth. We were able to create a much more esthetic look with porcelain. In the after photo, his gums were irritated from the acrylic temporary and will heal.
