Erin had a few upper teeth that were undersized and had been restored years ago with acrylic. She wanted to brighten her smile, so we bleached her teeth and placed 4 porcelain veneers to improve the shape of her teeth and match her new, lighter color. She now smiles with confidence!
An accident as a child broke Chris’s upper front tooth. He struggled cosmetically with this for years. We were able to give him a great result very conservatively by placing a single porcelain veneer.
Kate had suffered numerous cavities and erosion of her enamel from a past diet that was high in acid. Not only did she not like the look of her smile, but her teeth were highly sensitive because of the loss of enamel. We were able to give her a smile to be proud of AND that was no longer sensitive.
The unfavorable position of Lois’ teeth caused an upper front tooth to break off at the gumline. With orthodontics, we repositioned her teeth so this would not recur, replaced the broken tooth with an implant, and finished with 3 upper porcelain veneers for a beautiful look!
Kirk’s back teeth had almost totally lost their enamel, so they were becoming very worn down. Using single-appointment technology, we covered the tops of his back teeth with onlays (partial crowns) to give him back the shape and protection he needed.
Deb grinds her teeth. Over time, this caused her teeth to shift, resulting in uneven wear and tear. To give her the polished result, we repositioned her teeth with orthodontics, bleached her teeth, and covered the excessively worn teeth with a combination of porcelain veneers and crowns. We also made her a nightguard to protect her new smile!
What started Sharon’s journey was an upper front tooth that broke completely off. In addition to replacing the broken tooth, she wanted a whiter, brighter smile. Her beautiful final look is a combination of orthodontics, an implant, veneers, and crowns.
Rob’s upper front teeth had worn down over time. We gave them back the proportion they needed by repositioning his gumline and finishing with porcelain veneers.
Ann’s smile had changed color dramatically due to a medication she needed to take. In addition, the edges of her teeth had become so thin, you could see through them. We gave her the color she wanted and the strength her teeth needed by placing a combination of crowns and veneers. She is happy!
Years of grinding on malpositioned teeth had resulted in excessive wearing for Jim. We solved his problem by realigning his teeth and placing veneers and crowns on the worn teeth. He protects his new smile with a nightguard when he sleeps.
This teen had spaces remaining after completing his orthodontics. We filled the space by bonding acrylic resin to the tooth. This is a conservative, inexpensive, but effective way to resolve this issue.
The repair job on Sandy’s broken front tooth was stained and caused her to “spit” through her front teeth. We addressed both of these issues by placing 4 porcelain veneers that have now been in place for over 10 years!
Over time, Dave’s teeth had worn down tremendously, leaving them without enamel protection on most of his chewing surfaces. We rebuilt his smile by realigning his teeth and then giving him back the height that his teeth originally had through veneers and crowns.
This teen had large, unsightly white spots on his upper front teeth called “decalcifications.” We used a new technology that remineralizes the tooth and reverses the white color so that it blends more naturally with the rest of his tooth. What a great result without doing anything to his teeth, other than using this new product!
This person’s teeth were mismatched in color, partially due to stains from silver amalgam fillings. She wanted a uniform, brighter color and shape to her teeth, so we replaced some of her restorations with tooth-colored material and placed 4 porcelain veneers on the upper front teeth so that the color and shape harmonized from front to back.
