This emergency room doctor’s upper front tooth had a root canal and crown done when he was in his 20’s, many years later the tooth broke and had to be extracted. We restored his smile using a dental implant, a same-day temporary/provisional tooth and then a metal free implant crown. Now he can smile with confidence while taking care of his patients.
This nice lady presented to our office with a front tooth that needed to be extracted, aging implant crowns and receding gums. Due to past negative experiences, she was hesitant about making changes to her smile and she did not want to have to wear a flipper (temporary removable partial to replace missing teeth) during the healing process.
After her extractions, instead of a flipper, we were able to use fixed temporary teeth until her new implants wereready to be permanently restored.Her new smile was completed with two dental implants, a bridge, crowns and whitening of the natural teeth.
This patient had trauma to his face while playing sports in college. We were able to save the broken tooth and improve his smile using crowns and home whitening. We provided him with a sports mouth guard in the colors of his favorite team that he now wears every time he is on the field.
This beautiful patient had wanted to change her smile for many years. When she was finally ready, we restored her damaged teeth with Emax (all ceramic) crowns and whitening. A few months later she got her dream job and moved to pursue her dreams. We’re so happy we were part of her success story!
This Oil and Gas engineer had dentistry done all over the world due to his job assignments. When he came to us, he needed treatment on several of his back teeth to get them healthy. Once that treatment was complete, he requested a new smile; 6 Porcelain Veneers were his treatment of choice along with whitening of his natural teeth.
This executive did not like the way her old veneers looked or the color/staining of her natural teeth. Using all ceramic veneers, we were able to give her the size, shape and color she wanted and now she has the smile of her dreams.
My favorite local restaurant owner did not like the wear on her front teeth but did not want to grind away any of her healthy tooth structure, which is normally necessary to restore with traditional veneers and/or crowns. We were able to restore her two front teeth with no-prep veneers. The amazing master ceramist at our lab was able to create beautiful custom restorations to achieve the natural translucency she used to have. Now she’s back doing what she does best, making people happy with her amazing recipes.
When we met this nice gentleman, he had never been offered any aesthetic/cosmetic solutionsfor his under sized tooth. Using a very conservative technique, where we layer different shades of composite resin and a translucent material on top,we were able to achieve a natural look without breaking the bank. This in-office solution is all done in one visit.
Injectable composite veneers are a great esthetic and functional solution for teenage patients with small teeth (peg laterals). They are beautiful and durable so they are a great solution until the patient is finished growing and ready for permanent ceramic restorations.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
This patient struggled with advanced tooth wear due to severe clenching and grinding habits – he had ground down all of his teeth by approximately 35%! A full mouth reconstruction using Emax and Zirconia crowns gave him back his smile and ability to eat the steaks he loves so much.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
This worldwide business traveler suffered from advanced tooth wear, several missing and broken teeth, and a history of damaged implants. Working with his Periodontist we rehabilitated his mouth using dental implants, gum recontouring and a combination of Emax and Zirconia crowns and veneers. It has been over six years and he is still so happy with his appearance and ability to eat without fear of breaking more teeth.
Removal of old failing amalgam/silver fillings is highly recommended – known to promote fractured teeth – they are made of materials such as mercury,silver, tin and copper that release toxic vapors harmful to our body. The material of choice for replacement is a biocompatible composite resin (tooth color filling).
One of the most conservative and rewarding treatments we do is selective re-shaping of the enamel which rejuvenates smiles and gives the optical illusion of straighter lower teeth. It’s a great solution for chipped and rugged edges, uneven borders and sharp angles typical of worn teeth.
