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 complained that he'd never been able to smile because he didn't like the way his teeth looked. After Zoom teeth whitening, we sculpted and bonded resin veneers to improve the shape and size of his upper front teeth. We also used a diode laser to improve the contour of his gum tissue above one of the 2 front incisors. Great result!
This patient felt her small "lateral incisors" next to the upper central teeth were too small. She also didn't like how one central tooth was shorter than the other.
After some planning, we were able to fix her smile in 1 appointment. These are cosmetic bonded veneers. What a beautiful result!
This patient had a porcelain veneer that was pulled off when she removed her "Smile Direct" clear aligner. She then lost the veneer. Instead of a new porcelain veneer she requested a bonded resin veneer. After a single 45-minute appointment, she left with a fantastic result!
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 sweet patient already had a beautiful smile, but she felt that her gums were too "puffy" and the front side teeth were too small.
So we used a laser to reduce the "puffiness" of the gum tissues, and allowed a week for the gums to settle into their new position. Then we used cosmetic bonded veneers on the two side teeth to add length and width to make them more proportional to her other teeth.
What a beautiful result!
Using a new clear aligner system called "Smart Moves", we were able to successfully close the space between his upper front 2 teeth. Once the space closed, a little cosmetic bonding to improve and re-contour a few spots, and it is a great result!
1 hour and no numbing, and we had this fantastic result and a very happy patient!
This was a challenge--covering the dark staining with translucent bonding material. But the patient was thrilled with the result! Using a special "opaquing" layer under the resin, we were able to be very conservative while still significantly lightening the shade of his teeth.
This patient was unhappy with spacing between her teeth, as well as some wearing-down at the incisal edges. We discussed several options, but for the short-term she opted for cosmetic bonding to address the cosmetic issues bothering her. No numbing, single-appointment, great result!
After a single appointment we were able to give this patient a beautiful new smile! We initially discussed orthodontics and porcelain veneers, but in the end we decided on bonded resin veneers. She can now smile with confidence!
This patient felt her gums showed too much when she smiled. A laser was used to gently re-shape some areas, and after less than 2 weeks what a great result!
This patient had avoided the dentist for years. Frequent sodas and energy drinks had caused the widespread cavities seen in the 'before' image. She had a party in 4 days and wanted to improve her smile. Due to the limited time we were not able to treat the posterior teeth at this appointment, but after about 2 1/2 hours her upper front teeth were much improved, and she was thrilled!
This patient wanted his spaces closed. After gradually and comfortably moving his teeth into an ideal position we were able to do minimal cosmetic bonding to finish his fantastic new smile!
This patient's front tooth was tilted and rotated, resulting in a gap between the front 2 teeth. With Clear Correct clear aligners we were able to close the gap and straighten the teeth. Some cosmetic bonding on the neighboring teeth was done to improve symmetry and the final result!
This patient just finished orthodontics and wanted to improve the appearance of this lower front tooth. It had fractured a few years ago and was stained. We discussed a porcelain veneer and bonding, and she opted for bonding. After an easy 30-minute appointment she left with a beautiful result!
This patient had suffered from too much gum tissue for years. Not only was is painful when she was eating, but she didn't like how it looked and as a result did not smile in public. In 2 easy appointments, we were able to comfortably and predictably re-shape her gum tissue using a laser. We then did some cosmetic bonding to close the spaces between her teeth and improve tooth-size proportions. She reported having no discomfort after the procedure, and is thrilled with the result. Now she loves her "new" smile that had been there all along!
This patient did not like how her front teeth were so crowded and uneven. She commented that she didn't smile in photographs, and was self-conscious in public. We made her an Inman Aligner that she wore daily for 4 months, then when her teeth were straight, did some cosmetic bonding to add length to her shorter lateral incisors. It is a fantastic result!
This patient wanted her broken front tooth fixed, and asked if we could close the space between the teeth at the same time. After a short appointment, she was thrilled with the result!
This patient had neglected her teeth for some time and said she'd just stopped looking in the mirror. She's a school teacher, and with classes starting in a few weeks she decided it was time to fix them. We discussed porcelain veneers versus bonding, and due to time and cost, she opted for bonding. After a short 1-hour appointment, she's able to smile with confidence again!
This patient broke his front tooth playing sports. It was not painful or sensitive; he was just concerned with the way it looked. Without numbing the tooth we were able to match his existing tooth characteristics and color, and he went home happy after a 10-15 minute appointment.
This patient was unhappy with the spaces between her front teeth. We discussed different ways to close the spaces, and she wanted to proceed with cosmetic bonding. She was very happy with the result, and even asked which teeth we had added the bonding material to when it was completed!
