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.
This patient's teeth had eroded from a combination of years of acid reflux and heavy grinding. After careful diagnostics, a full wax-up, photographs, and discussions of several different options, it was decided that restoring the teeth to their proper size and function with all-porcelain crowns was the best option to provide long-term protection and service. What a great result!
This patient wanted to close a gap between her front two teeth. With porcelain crowns and veneers we were able to close the gap and give her a beautiful, brighter smile!
This young lady was born without her front tooth. After wearing braces to straighten everything out, we discussed an implant versus a "Maryland Bridge". She decided on the bridge for now and may consider an implant in the future. We're all thrilled with the result!
This patient felt her old porcelain over metal bridge on her front teeth looked bulky and fake, and was reluctant to smile in public. We replaced it with a beautiful new metal-free bridge that is much more lifelike and feminine!
This patient was ready to improve his smile and did not want to go through orthodontics, so we discussed other options. Through a combination of 2 porcelain crowns and 2 porcelain veneers we were able to achieve a great result in only 2 visits!
This patient wanted a bigger, brighter smile. She already had nice teeth, but thought they were too small and dark. After careful evaluation and planning, we had new porcelain veneers fabricated to enhance her already beautiful smile.
This patient had been wearing a removable partial denture for years and was not happy with it. He complained of it moving while he chewed, and said he could not eat many of the foods that he enjoyed. After careful planning, 5 mini dental implants were placed, and a custom bridge was cemented into place. He is now able to chew food again on that side, and he does not have to worry about removing his teeth at night before bed. He called the day after the implants were placed to let us know he was on his way out ...
This large metal filling was done many years ago. The patient was aware of it any time she smiled or laughed, and asked about replacing it. We were able to give the tooth long-term protection as well as satisfy the patient's cosmetic concerns with a beautiful porcelain crown
This patient broke his front porcelain crown while playing sports. After removing the old crown and cleaning up the tooth, we took photos and impressions and had a new porcelain crown made.
This patient's old crown was failing and had a cavity forming where the dark area is visible near the gum line. We were able to remove the old crown, fix the decay, and fabricate a beautiful, new porcelain crown to match her other teeth perfectly!
This young lady came to us with a cracked porcelain crown (in the picture it appears as a vertical line running down the middle of the tooth on the left side of the "before" photo. We were able to replace it with a beautiful new porcelain crown in no time...happy patient!
