This patient unfortunately lost a front tooth at a young age. He chose to have his missing tooth replaced by a dental implant. Dental implants are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile and are designed to blend with your other teeth. Implants are usually placed by an oral surgeon or periodontist, and then the tooth is connected by your general dentist.
This is another patient who chose to replace her missing tooth with a dental implant.
This patient did not like the yellowing of her teeth and the 'notched' or 'recessed' areas at her gum line. To attain the best cosmetic result, she first used a professional take-home whitening kit provided by our office. She then had porcelain crowns or caps placed over her natural teeth to help her get the best cosmetic result possible.
This patient did not like the short yellowing appearance of his top teeth. He choose to do 6 front crowns to change the overall shape and color of his top teeth. In addition, he completed a round of professional whitening provided by our office.
This is another example of a patient who chipped his front teeth. The teeth were fixed with composite bonding which is a tooth-colored material that bonds to the remaining tooth structure.
When this patient presented to our office, he had a few issues that were concerning him most. His front tooth was ‘dark and crooked’ and he also had a baby tooth that when he smiled looked like a ‘space’ because the tooth was so small. After removal of two top bad teeth, a 6-unit (meaning 6 teeth total) bridge was fabricated and cemented permanently in his mouth to solve his problems. A bridge is linked to your strong teeth and literally “bridges” the gap between missing teeth. The final result looked great!
This patient wanted to change the color and shape of her teeth. After a round of professional whitening provided by our office, she had four ceramic crowns placed on her top teeth. She was very pleased with the final result.
This patient wanted to feel better smiling. He did not like his genetically 'small teeth', the gaps between his teeth and he wanted them whiter. His treatment first consisted of professional take-home whitening. He then chose to have porcelain veneers completed on his upper six and lower six front teeth. Porcelain veneers are made by a dental lab technician, working from a model provided by your dentist. They are thin, tooth-colored shells, which go over the patient's natural teeth.
