Veneers & Crowns
Veneers & All-ceramic CrownWhen Amy first arrived at our office, she wasn’t happy with her smile. She had some tooth colored fillings placed on her front teeth many years earlier and now those fillings were starting to stain and look worn. The fillings were placed to close gaps between her teeth. She now desired to have a more aesthetic solution. Amy was encouraged to seek orthodontics to straighten her teeth and a periodontics to lengthen her teeth, but she did not want to wait the necessary treatment times. Amy elected to have teeth whitening and then follow with porcelain veneers on her top front 6 teeth. Amy’s outcome could have been far more aesthetic if coupled with orthodontics and a crown lengthening surgery, but Amy was more than happy. With no more stained teeth, she’s ready for many years of smiling!

Brian presented to our office searching for an acceptable way to close the gap between his front teeth. He had seen another dentist and been told that they only way to close the gap was two crowns. He didn’t like the idea of crowning the teeth and desired to explore the possibility of two veneers. After a treatment workup, it was decided that Brian could benefit from two veneers. Brian began his treatment with take-home whitening trays. After whiting to his desired level, two all-ceramic veneers were completed. Brian was very happy to have the gap closed and not have to have two crowns completed.
Dental Implant & All-ceramic Crown
Mr. W presented missing a top lateral incisor. He was constantly self-conscious about smiling. He wanted to explore the options to replace this missing tooth. A tooth-supported bridge was not a good option because the adjacent teeth had no restorations and were healthy. In addition, a partial denture seemed too obtrusive simply to replace one missing tooth. Mr. W elected to have a dental implant placed. Afterwards, an abutment and crown were connected to the dental implant thus restoring his smile. No more missing tooth; no more inhibitions to smiling!

Mr. R is another patient like Mr. T. He presented with severe wear associated with all of his teeth. Mouth issues like Mr. R’s are extremely complex. First one has to determine what caused the wear. In Mr. R’s case it was a combination of erosion and grinding. Next, the cause has to be treated before the teeth can be full restored. Afterwards, Mr. R’s treatment began. His treatment consisted of a full mouth rehabilitation. Mr. R had crown lengthening surgeries, root canals, a dental implant placed, and a full mouth of crowns. The complexity of Mr. R’s treatment lies in the sequence that the procedures are performed. There is no quick fix for a complex full mouth rehabilitation. After his carefully-devised treatment was completed, Mr. R had a comfortable bite and a beautiful smile.

At the completion of a very long treatment, Mr. T was asked if he would do it again. He replied, “Absolutely, I love my new smile!”
Full Mouth Dentures
Barbara presented with an all-too-common story. She had an existing set of dentures that she did not wear. She stated that they were terribly uncomfortable and she had not worn them for months. The dentures felt too large in her mouth and she desired to have teeth that functioned just as good as they looked. After a number of appointments, Barbara received her new set of custom dentures. These dentures were made to fit her mouth exactly. In addition to looking great, Barbara is able to now have comfort in chewing.

Joe presented to our office missing many teeth. The teeth that remained were either crowned or heavily broken down. For years, Joe had “patched” things as needed. He had been wearing a temporary partial denture, but due to his broken down bite, the temporary partial had broken and Joe was very close to going on a cruise. Joe opted to receive immediate dentures. At the same time the teeth were removed dental implants and immediate dentures were placed. He was able to chew and smile immediately after having the problematic teeth removed. Ten months later Joe opted to have a new set of dentures made that would snap onto the dental implants. These new overdentures, not only provided Joe with a natural smile, but also gave him the confidence and comfort to know that his dentures would not have any movement.

Her smile makeover was achieved by dental implants, crowns, and bridges. This treatment truly changed her life.
