This patient was born with severely misshapen front teeth. which is a problem we see a lot of in our practice. He wanted to have the most minimal treatment possible. Doctor supervised in-office whitening was used to get a much brighter color to his teeth, and then composite bonding was used to reshape the teeth. Ideally, orthodontics could have been used to change the angle of the teeth, but the patient did not want braces, and he was very happy with the result.
This patient visited us for the first time feeling self-conscious about his tooth after his nephew had told him it looked “dirty.” After years of failed bonding, the patient decided to go with a more permanent solution and had a porcelain veneer placed. After our master ceramist came to our office to customize the shading of the porcelain with the patient’s participation, the patient could not believe how well the veneer blended with his other teeth. As we said from the beginning, it will be our little secret anything ever happened to the tooth because it looks so natural!
This patient came to us with a dark and ‘dead’ front tooth. She desperately wanted her naturally unique smile restored. A single all porcelain crown was place over the ‘dead’ tooth and composite bonding was done on the tooth next to it to blend her two front teeth together for a very natural look. An all porcelain crown was used to give the best aesthetic result and to eliminate the risk of a metal ‘black line’ seen in some older style crowns.
This patient came to us with very low self-esteem mainly because of his smile. He wanted veneers to be placed as soon as possible. After it was explained to him that it would be much healthier to move the teeth into the correct position before veneers were placed, he chose to move forward with the treatment that would give the best result and have the most longevity. Braces were used to move the teeth and then all porcelain veneers were custom made to blend with his newly straightened teeth. All porcelain crowns and veneers are used to eliminate the risk of metal showing through to make an unaesthetic ‘black line’.
This patient came to us in severe pain with obvious decay on her two front teeth. After we got her out of pain, she was treated with two all porcelain crowns on her front teeth that were custom made to blend with the rest of her healthy teeth. All porcelain crowns and veneers are used to eliminate the risk of metal showing through to make an unaesthetic ‘black line’.
This patient came to us with moderately cracked and worn four front teeth. Bonding had been done numerous times by previous dentists, but nothing seemed to look and last like she had hoped. After it was explained to her that all porcelain veneers would actually strengthen her teeth and look much better than her prior treatment, she was very willing to move forward with the work. Four all-ceramic veneers were then custom made for her and she is very pleased with the result. All porcelain crowns and veneers are used to eliminate the risk of metal showing through to make an unaesthetic ‘black line’.
