Before and After Photos
Our Smile Design services are on display in this first example.
Patients come to us with a myriad of concerns about their smiles. This Patient required some significant restorative work, including; Laser Gingivectomy, Layered Porcelain Veneers, and All-Ceramic Crowns.
Our Patient broke her front teeth in a childhood accident. Her original veneers lasted 20 years but are beginning to fail. Gum recession is obvious and irregular. Several fillings are badly stained and in need for replacement.
This Photo was taken moments after the Gingivectomy was performed with a Diode Laser, and the temporary crowns and veneers were placed. Notice how the shape of the Gumline is now very smooth and graceful after using the laser to re-contour their shape!
Here is our final result! The patient was thrilled to “Have her smile back”. This case was completed in 2004. On recall appointments over the last 9 years, we have seen that the Esthetics and the durability of Porcelain Veneers and Crowns is outstanding.
Here is an example of what can be done with Composite “Bondings”. These are done in our office in about an hour. This patient also broke her front teeth as a 9 year old. As you can see the original Bondings are badly discolored! The “After” result is not quite as perfect as porcelain veneers, but the cost is much less, and the result were far quicker!
Implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. The patient receives the most natural feeling and functioning tooth replacement. This procedure is begun by the Oral surgeon, and finished by the general dentist. As you can see, the patient achieved a very natural result. She can Brush and Floss as if the tooth were her original tooth, and enjoy all of her favorite foods!
