We love to witness the happiness that our patients feel when they see the results of their cosmetic and restorative dental work. We invite you to view some examples of our work in the Before & After Gallery below.
This patient was surprised to find out how simple it was to fix her uneven two front teeth with a very conservative procedure (without removing any tooth structure). And she was even more pleased to find out that we could do this without anesthetic! We bonded composites (filling material) to her existing tooth structure, blending it in to make them look natural. The patient was very pleased with the results and left with a huge smile!
This patient broke her tooth and had a filling placed years ago, which fell out while she was eating. She had a gap between the two teeth and wanted to close the space. It was a challenging request, because she only wanted work done on the damaged/chipped tooth. Therefore, we had to close the gap without making the tooth that received the bonding look noticeably larger than her other front tooth. The patient was very happy that we were able to close the gap in this manner and make it look natural and balanced.
This young woman’s front tooth grew into her mouth with a discoloration. When we asked her if she wanted to fix it, she was surprised that we could do that for her. We removed the discoloration and bonded a composite filling material that blended so well onto her tooth, it’s unnoticeable! A very conservative and painless procedure, in one quick visit.
Years ago, this young girl had an accident where she broke her two front teeth and then saw another dentist to repair them with fillings. She came into our office because the upper right front filling had fallen off. In examining her, we saw that the filling on the front left tooth which was still intact was very short. We were able to restore both teeth in one visit, to look more natural and in line with her beautiful smile. For years, she had been embarrassed to smile, but she left with a radiant, beaming smile. A very special moment!
PORCELAIN VENEERS AND 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.
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.
This patient has beautiful teeth, but her upper laterals are narrower and smaller than the ideal size (aka “peg laterals”). She was excited to find out that we could make them look larger without removing any tooth structure. First we did a wax-up so she could see what they could look like, and then we did a “Trial Smile” so she could see them in her mouth. Then when she was ready to go ahead with the actual procedure, we added composite filling material to cover her existing enamel, making her smile look fuller in a very conservative and reversible way. Her smile lit up the room!
This patient chipped his front tooth. We were able to bond some composite filling material, blending it in to match his natural shade. He was very pleased.
Many years ago, this patient broke his two front teeth and had fillings placed. More recently, the filing on his upper right front tooth broke off. We recommended that we also redo the filling on the left front tooth, but he wanted to do only the right one. He was so pleased with the repair that now he wants to replace the filling on the upper front left tooth as well!
This patient has had discoloration on her two front teeth for as long as she can remember. The left tooth has a cavity where it is discolored (outer side), so she decided to fix both teeth. We were able to remove the caries and cover over the discolored areas, blending in the fillings to match her enamel.
