Cindy is CPA who deals with the public all the time. She felt that her teeth didn't reflect a professional persona when dealing with other business people. In the past, she had dental work done one at time, and over time, it looked more like 'patchwork dentistry'. While her existing work was functional, it just didn't look good.
Cindy wanted a more natural look, and a pleasing white smile. After going over her options, together we decided that a ‘smile makeover’ of her upper teeth was the best option. After whitening her upper and lower teeth, Cindy had a combination of 10 crowns and veneers placed on her upper teeth. We replaced some older crowns that didn’t match, placed veneers on her front teeth, and took the time to make sure everything was more in proportions to look natural.
Now, Cindy is confident that her new smile reflects the professional appearance that she is looking for.
Diane is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She loves to laugh, loves to talk, and tells great stories. She has a great group of friends and meets up with them quite often. When I first met Diane, I could tell that she loves life. But she was not happy with her teeth.
She told me that now was the time for herself, and she wanted to improve everything about the way teeth looked. She wanted a smile that she didn't have to cover up, that she could share without being embarrassed. What Diane needed as a smile rejuvenation.
We looked at 3 major areas when discussing how to improve the appearance of teeth: Shape, Size, and Color, along with alignment. Diane's teeth were deficient in all these areas; the teeth were mismatched in size, the shapes were not even, the color could definitely be improved, and they were crooked.
Since we wanted to improve in all aspects, Diane decided that a full smile makeover was the best option. We treated the front 6 teeth with veneers. In 2 visits, Diane's teeth went from drab to fab! After her new dentistry, I don't think I have seen Diane NOT smile!
Suzanne was one of my first patients to have a smile makeover. She was very unhappy with her smile for many reasons. The gap between her front teeth bothered her, as did the yellow crowns, and the composite bonding on the front teeth that turned yellow with time. Her previous dentist did a few things at a time, but they never really addressed her whole smile at once. As you can tell, piece-work attempts to improve things really didn't look that great.
Suzanne needed to close the gap in her front teeth, improve the size and shape of the front teeth, improve the color of an old crown on the side, and just make things look more natural.
After looking at all her issues, Suzanne decided to treat all the upper teeth that showed when she smiled. We completed a smile makeover with a combination of crowns and veneers. In the first visit, we prepared the teeth and Suzanne had temporaries made that instantly closed the space! On the second visit, we placed the veneers and whitened her lower teeth. We were able to create ‘instant orthodontics’ and close the spaces without braces. Check out the great results!
Will has been a patient for a long time. Will’s job has him traveling all over the country, and he wanted to make sure that he always presented his best. He was concerned with the crowding on the lower teeth that led to build up and stains, and he was not happy with the appearance of his upper front teeth.
Will saw a local orthodontist and they improved the bite as well as the alignment of the upper and lower teeth in about 12 months.
Once the teeth were straight, we looked at size, shape and color of the upper teeth. All 3 things needed to be corrected, so a combination of crowns and veneers were used. In addition, one of Will’s lateral incisors was too broken down to repair, so we opted to replace it with an implant. In total, we were able to restore Will’s smile with 6 restorations.
As you can see, this has made a huge improvement in his smile! Now, he feels confident when he meets with strangers and business people alike!
