Patient Smile Gallery
“Mary” had spent her entire life embarrassed about her dark gray teeth, even though it was not her fault. An antibiotic commonly used years ago to treat children left her teeth permanently discolored and Mary thought she had to face a lifetime of hiding her smile. By placing thin porcelain veneers on her teeth, we were able to rejuvenate her teeth and give her the dazzling white smile she had always dreamed of. No more hiding, just smiling!

Tooth Decay, Broken Teeth
Years of neglect and poor care had led “Sonya” to have broken and unsightly teeth, always hiding her smile and in some cases dealing with tooth pain. After evaluation, we decided the treatment of choice for Sonya was restoration with several dental implants to replace her missing teeth and porcelain crowns to complete the “smile makeover”.
Discolored, Uneven Teeth
Sometimes teeth just don’t match. Whether it’s because of staining or you have old crowns that are different colors, it’s not unusual for things to be discolored and non-matching. That’s where cosmetic dentistry helps. Porcelain did the trick in this case by making the “perfect” smile.
Straight, even teeth can be accomplished without brackets and wires using a series of clear “aligners”…..and you can whiten at the same time!
Missing Teeth, Getting Rid of Partial Denture
“June” had lost several of her teeth over the years due to breakdown and wear. For many years she had worn a removable partial denture that was bulky, uncomfortable, and gave her and uneven smile. By placing several all-porcelain crowns and bridges, we were able to restore June’s smile and get rid of the cumbersome partial denture.
Smile-Lift Changing Tooth Shapes
“Nicole” never liked the shapes of her teeth and her smile. Genetically, she was missing some permanent teeth and had some misshapen baby teeth. Together this left and uneven, unbalanced smile for Nicole. Through the “magic” of cosmetic enhancement with porcelain veneers and crowns, we were able to reshape Nicole’s teeth, make them whiter and give her a “smile lift”. No more disliking this smile!
Worn, Chipped Teeth
“Joe” had been a tooth grinder (bruxer) for years. As a result, his teeth and his smile became chipped and worn, given him a reason to grin, but not smile, never showing his worn teeth. After a makeover with porcelain veneers and crowns, those days are over.
“All-on-4” Dental Implant RestorationBefore After
Unfortunately, we cannot always save teeth. Gum disease, extreme wear and generalized tooth loss from decay can lead to non-restorable teeth. But we can still help. With the latest in implant technology, CAT-scan planning, and advanced restorative material, we can give you a fully fixed, non-removable set of teeth on as few as 4 implants per arch. (All-on-4). In most cases an immediately fixed temporary set of teeth is placed to avoid wearing a removable denture as a temporary.
Single Tooth ReplacementBefore After
A single missing tooth, whether in the front or back of the mouth, can be easily placed using a single implant. The implant replaces the missing tooth root and a crown is placed to replace the visible part of the tooth. In most cases today, this is the preferred treatment to replace teeth permanently.
