"Why didn't I do this sooner?!!"
We can’t count how many times we have heard that exact statement from our patients. One of the things we most enjoy is helping people improve their smiles with cosmetic treatment in order to help them feel better about themselves or even to fix uneven bites as adults and getting a fantastic cosmetic result.
By changing the shapes of the teeth or how they fit together many times we can dramatically improve your oral health. We are happy to do complimentary consultations to address any issue you may have a question about, from whitening to all porcelain crowns and veneers to fixing crooked teeth we have multiple solutions for you.
Combining a patient’s restorative needs with a cosmetic approach is important, if you are going to have to have a crown done because of necessity we would prefer to make it look the best it can instead of a general dentistry approach of creating the same exact shape of the tooth and we love to treat our patients with a more comprehensive goal when it would benefit the patient.
For example, if you have to have a crown done we may give you the option of changing how that crown is shaped in order to improve cosmetics and your bite. That’s why individual planning is so important through consultation. The process of designing your smile will be explained thoroughly and all your questions answered. We combine our cosmetic experience and take into account everything you would like your smile to become.
We will be open and honest with you as to what is possible but just know once this is completed we know the only negative comment you will make is what we hear over and over again “Why didn’t I do this sooner?!!” It happens every time and it’s our favorite thing to hear!
Below are just a few of our patients we have done, we will be adding more and more photos to the website. Underneath the photos are some limited explanations of
It's our goal to create lasting oral health and incomparable beauty in every smile we treat!
Before & After Photos
This patient presented saying he was unhappy with his appearance and wanted to know if there was anything we could do. We did a cosmetic consult with the patient and went over his entire mouth, tooth by tooth. He had fracture lines on many teeth (this is most apparent in the photos on his front teeth), older fillings that were breaking down because of an uneven bite, his front teeth didn’t show very much when he smiled (the length of his front teeth were not ideal), he had teeth that were rotated and the shape of the teeth themselves looked pointed. Our patient decided to do full mouth reconstruction and allowed us to pick the shape and color of his teeth. We were able to completely fix his rotated and uneven teeth without the use of braces! We chose what we believe to be a very complimentary shade with translucency. We lengthened his front teeth to give him a more prominent smile. We haven’t finished his case but this is a photo of his upper teeth and when we are finished his bite will be balanced thus preventing his teeth from breaking down further. He is already enjoying his new beautiful smile!
This patient has lost a great deal of his original length of the teeth in the front due to fractures, the dark area on the left front tooth is because the back side of the tooth was worn off, this area was going to break at any moment, it was paper thin.
The tooth next to the two front teeth on the right had rotated completely out of alignment. The tooth next to the two front teeth on the left had a large fracture.
We whitened his whole mouth and did all porcelain crowns on his four upper front teeth. We corrected the size of his two front teeth by correcting the proportion of width to height ratio.
Incorrect tooth proportion can make you look like you have teeth that stick out in front of others even if they don’t. This correction makes the two front teeth look less prominent and gives the patient a wider more balanced smile and all with only doing 4 teeth!
This patient had an “open bite”, meaning that even though his back teeth are biting down completely, his front teeth don’t come close to being together.
We did 8 teeth for this gentleman in order to fix the tooth proportion and so he could have any tooth color he wanted. Remember, this is a process that includes the patient’s goals!
Our patient was very unhappy with how her teeth looked in general. She had a significant overjet, teeth that were out of alignment, a narrow smile, excessive wear, crack lines that stained darker than the rest of her tooth as she drank coffee, she had old fillings that were stained, teeth that were breaking down, and recession that exposed black triangles between her teeth. We discussed several options with our patient and she decided to have her full mouth reconstructed.
We designed her smile to correct her overjet, correct the proportion of the teeth themselves and the proportion of the teeth to each other, we re-designed the shape of the teeth, we lengthened the front teeth regaining back the length she had lost over the years, corrected several areas where her bite was uneven, and the patient decided on a very flattering color for her skin tone. All the while taking into consideration her natural smile.
Her new smile takes years off of her appearance. Patients are very involved with the design of this type of comprehensive treatment. It is very different than traditional dentistry and the results are amazing! Her teeth and gums are healthier than ever and look fantastic. She was very happy with the results and so are we!!
