This man was very unhappy about his smile and his upper left front bridge which kept coming off. After placing three Empress 2 Porcelain Veneer-Crowns and an Empress 2 All-Porcelain Bridge on his front six teeth, his "new" smile reflects total happiness with his new appearance and smile!
This woman wanted to improve the appearance of her smile and did not like the way her front teeth looked. Utilizing a combination of Empress Porcelain Veneers and Porcelain-to-Gold Crowns and Fixed Bridgework, her "new" smile displays a more natural and relaxed appearance as compared to her "before" smile. Her smile now reflects how happy she is, thanks to having the very best in Cosmetic Dentistry!
This woman was not happy with the appearance of her front teeth and how asymmetrical and uneven both her gumline and her existing metal-reinforced bridges looked. She desired a more natural and aesthetic smile to complement her features. By replacing her previous fixed bridges with All-Ceramic Empress 2 Bridges and recontouring her gumline, her smile was dramatically improved. Her new smile is more natural, harmonious, and symmetrical giving her a more confident and radiant appearance!
This woman was very unhappy about the recent dentistry she had done elsewhere, all of which was poorly done and began to fall off her teeth after it was completed. She was unable to bite into anything with strength and was very self-conscious about how she looked and the way her teeth now appeared. All her teeth were severely damaged from the recent dentistry. After removing all the defective dentistry, her teeth were properly restored with a combination of Empress Veneers, Lava All-Porcelain Crowns, and Porcelain-to-Gold Bridges. Judging by how she now smiles, she feels great, looks better, and is now able to eat with confidence for the first time in many years!
This woman was not very pleased about her smile and how her teeth looked. Her teeth were extremely worn down and very discolored and she was having some functional (biting) problems due to the excessive wear on her teeth. After restoring all her teeth with a combination of Empress Veneers, Lava Crowns, and a Porcelain-to-Gold Bridge, all her biting problems were immediately resolved and her smile was restored to a more natural and youthful appearance. As evident by her new appearance, she is quite happy with her new smile and how naturally beautiful her teeth look and feel!
This woman was not happy about the esthetics of her teeth, as well as wanted dental implants to replace two missing teeth. Her existing dentistry was very discolored and had decay around many of her teeth from the poorly done previous dental treatment. She also had several old fillings which were deteriorating rapidly. After placing a dental implant and restoring her teeth with a combination of Composite Resin and Zirconia Invision Porcelain Restorations, the appearance of her smile and her facial changes were dramatically enhanced giving her the smile she has always wanted! She absolutely loves how her teeth now look and constantly smiles with confidence.
This woman was not happy with the appearance of her teeth and did not like having a full upper denture. She was having trouble speaking and chewing her food because her lower teeth were worn down and not treated properly at a specialist she previously went to. She also had numerous dental implants placed in her upper jaw by an oral surgeon but the implants were not placed in the correct position making it almost impossible to place permanent teeth in the proper functioning position. After a lengthy course of treatment involving rebuilding her lower teeth with All-Ceramic Crowns and Porcelain-to-Gold Bridges, followed by using Custom-Made Gold Abutments to support her permanent Porcelain-to-Gold Implant Bridges, her smile, ability to chew, and speak properly have been properly corrected and she is absolutely thrilled with the result!
This 9 year old child was unfortunately born with only 13 permanent teeth; most of them malformed and smaller than normal. He was also born with multiple smaller than normal baby teeth. In addition, his teeth did not meet properly when he closed his mouth. Due to his young age, permanent dentistry could not be done until he stopped growing when he was a teenager. Once he stopped growing, his teeth were restored with a combination of Dental Implants and Implant Crown, Lava All-Ceramic Crowns, and Veneers. The end result is absolutely amazing and he smiles all the time now because of his new and radiant smile!
This woman lost her upper right lateral incisor and did not want a dental implant or a conventional fixed bridge to replace the missing tooth. An ultra-conservative All-Porcelain Bonded Bridge was used to perfectly replace her missing tooth. A close-up of her smile shows just how excellent a match we were able to achieve in replacing her missing tooth without "grinding down" her adjacent teeth.
This woman was very self-conscious about her smile because of her missing tooth. Rather than undergo a conventional "bridge" to replace the missing tooth, a more conservative and highly-aesthetic Porcelain Veneer-to-Resin "framework bridge" was placed which restored her smile. Without knowing which tooth was replaced, it would be impossible to tell. This is conservative Cosmetic Dentistry at its finest!
