Issue: She was unhappy with the length and color variations in her front teeth. An upper right molar was also missing.
Solution: Some minor gum contouring was completed, 8 veneers were placed to create a broader smile with perfect symmetry and color, and an all zirconia implant and crown were used to restore the upper right molar.
Issue: He wanted to completely revitalize his smile. Particular focus was placed on the darker color, the vertical lines on the front teeth, and the low gumline on one of the front teeth.
Solution: Gum recontouring on the upper right lateral incisor to raise the gum line to a more symmetrical position and ten veneers to restore proper length, proportions, and a brilliantly bright smile.
Issue: Spacing between the front teeth and an uneven tilt to the smile.
Solution: Short term orthodontics to evenly spread out the space between the teeth followed by veneers across the eight front teeth to create a level smile with color consistency and no spaces.
Issue: A fall resulted in a broken front tooth. Uneven edges, slight gap, and longer than ideal front teeth.
Solution: The broken piece of the tooth was originally bonded back into place, but an infection later developed. A root canal was performed to resolve the infection. An all ceramic crown was placed on the broken front tooth and a veneer was placed on the adjacent front tooth. The result was a beautiful and seamless transition between the restored and natural teeth.
Issue – She was not happy with the smaller side front teeth, the discoloration from past bonding, and the mismatch of color between the front tooth crown and her other front teeth.
Solution – Eight veneers were used to transform this smile’s appearance by creating ideal tooth proportion, length, and color.
Issue – Dark cavities along the gum line, length differences between upper front teeth, and more prominently sharp points on the canines than she liked.
Solution – Six veneers were used to restore the cavities, create more desirable tooth lengths, and soften the shape of the canines.
Issue: Short side front teeth and a lack of consistent color and brightness of the smile.
Solution: Crown lengthening was performed to raise the gum level of the lateral incisors and create a more harmonious gum contour and establish ideal tooth length. Six veneers were then placed from canine to canine to create the smile appearance, color consistency, and whiteness that she wanted to see.
Issue – Old composite veneers on her front two teeth were discolored, worn short, and lacking texture and polish. She also wanted the length and edges of her two side front teeth to be more symmetrical
Solution – As a less expensive alternative to porcelain veneers, we used injection molded composite resin veneers to transform the appearance of the front four teeth. A 3D printed mockup of the new design was made and a clear stent of that mockup was used in the mouth to mold a flowable composite filling material around the four teeth.
Issue: The old veneer on her right front tooth was broken. While fixing this she also desired to make the two front teeth look more similar to one another.
Solution: Two new veneers on the front teeth restored ideal length, disguised the off-angle position of the left central incisor, and created a uniform color and translucency between the two front teeth.
Issue: New cavities and staining around old bonding were creating a smile she wasn’t comfortable showing.
Solution: Six veneers provided the beautifully natural, bright, and color consistent smile she was desiring.
Issue: She was unhappy with the color of the teeth as well as the rogue white areas that stood out after her braces were removed.
Solution: Veneers on the front eight teeth and crowns on the back teeth created the necessary bite improvement and desired cosmetic change.
Issue: Spaces between small front teeth and mismatched color of filling material and the natural front tooth that was repaired after being broken years ago.
Solution: Eight no-prep veneers were bonded onto the natural teeth to create the fullness and color continuity he desired. No enamel was damaged in the prepless veneer process, making this treatment route the perfect combination of being conservative with tooth structure and cosmetically improving the smile.
Issue – Broken and stained bonding on front teeth, dark space at the gumline between the front two teeth
Solution – As a more economical alternative to porcelain veneers, bonded resin veneers were hand applied to the front four teeth. A 3D printed digital mockup allowed us to make a custom matrix which we used to place injection molded composite resin onto the front four teeth – improving contours and creating a consistent bright color.
Issue – He did not feel confident with the spacing between his front teeth and the sharp edges and corners.
Solution – Injection molded composite resin veneers on the front four teeth to close the gaps and create ideal tooth width and edge shapes as well as reshaping the canines to soften the sharp edges.
Issue: An accident resulted in a cracked upper front tooth. Discussions about how to restore it led to a broader desire to improve her smile at the same time.
Solution: She was interested in veneers, but wasn’t willing to cut enamel away from the unbroken, healthy teeth. The solution was ten no-prep veneers which bonded directly over her unaffected natural teeth. These incredibly thin, handmade porcelain veneers allowed her to gain a broader smile with the improved color and brightness she wanted.
Issue: Chipping and wear across the edges of her front teeth. One front tooth much lower than the others that also was covered by bonding that was failing.
Solution: Invisalign clear aligners were used to reposition the teeth into more ideal placement, minor gum contouring to improve symmetry, and 8 veneers across the front teeth to provide a uniform length and color to her smile.
Issue: Yellowed and unevenly shaped front teeth.
Solution: Veneers across the front eight upper teeth and all ceramic crowns on the upper and lower molars to recreate proper bite support and function.
