It's true that a picture is worth a thousand words. Take a moment to browse through our Smile Gallery to see some of the transformations we've helped our patients achieve with dental crowns and bridges. A dental crown or bridge can do more than just change your smile. It can improve your everyday life.
This patient is getting married in 2 weeks and wants to improve her smile. We started with Zoom whitening. Then we placed an implant to replace a missing canine. Today we shaped her existing teeth for porcelain crowns, and delivered a custom-made temporary crown/bridge for her to wear during her wedding.
After the wedding and honeymoon, she will return for us to evaluate the temporary, make any requested adjustments, and then have her porcelain crowns made. We'll post the 'after' photo at that point!! But so far it looks great.
What a great result! Single visit, took about an hour, happy patient! Next week we're doing porcelain restorations to improve the size and shape of her front teeth, and also putting a tooth on her implant that can be seen in the photos.
This patient was unhappy with old, stained resin on her front teeth. We discussed porcelain veneers versus cosmetic bonding, and decided to go with the more conservative cosmetic bonding. We had to do some slight gum recontouring to even out the widths of the 2 teeth (which can be seen in the photo where the gum tissue is a little irritated), and we achieved a beautiful result after a single appointment!
This patient had old porcelain veneers on her front 2 teeth that she was unhappy with. After some discussions we decided to replace those 2 veneers, and add veneers on the 2 neighboring teeth as well to better blend the final result.
