With cosmetic bonding, no tooth structure was removed and this treatment was completed without any local anesthetic. The upper front teeth were simply cosmetically bonded with white composite material to achieve more ideal contours and lengths, ultimately resulting in an aesthetic smile.
Instead of this patient undergoing months or years of orthodontic treatment, we opted to perform cosmetic bonding to treat the diastema (or space) between her two front teeth.
No tooth structure was removed and no shots necessary! Within 20 minutes, this patient was able to have the space between her front teeth treated to achieve an aesthetic and balanced smile.
Lateral Dental Veneers
In this case, the lateral incisors (teeth next to the two front teeth) were rotated and too short. For a long term result, the patient opted to treat treat these teeth with porcelain veneers.
The veneers required just two visits to complete. On the 1st visit, the teeth were prepared to be able to accept the veneers. The patient left with temporary veneers and returned 2 weeks later to have the final restorations completed.
The final result is a beautiful, balanced smile.
The patient chose to have the damaged teeth extracted and to have an overdenture made. An over denture is used to go over teeth that are salvageable to improve retention.
The overdenture was made in advance so on the day the patient’s damaged teeth were removed, the denture was immediately placed so that the patient never experienced the inconvenience of missing teeth.
This overdenture allowed the patient to seamlessly be treated and ultimately achieve a much more aesthetic and functional result.
After the damaged teeth were extracted, the teeth anchoring the bridge, also known as abutments, were prepared for crowns and a temporary was placed. 2 weeks later, this final bridge was cemented.
The final result is even, perfectly aligned teeth that will function for years to come.
Anterior Dental Crowns
The final porcelain crowns allowed the patient to protect and strengthen the four front teeth as well as achieving a much lighter color.
The patient plans to treat the lower teeth in the future.
The treatment plan called for 5 anterior veneers, a new maxillary denture, and a new mandibular partial.
The anterior veneers allowed the patient to achieve a much lighter color as well as a perfect alignment. A new maxillary denture was fabricated to go with a new state of the art mandibular partial with no metal clasps.
The final result is beautiful and functional.
In 2 weeks, we were able to treat this rotation with a porcelain veneer to achieve a straight, beautiful, and natural smile.
6 Unit Dental Bridge
4 extractions and 2 weeks later, we were able to restore these teeth so they not only look good, but more importantly they are now functional.
The final result is a beautiful and seamless solution. These porcelain veneers will not stain or change color with time. They are also extremely durable and less susceptible to chipping due to grinding.
The final result is excellent. Not only are the stained and damaged teeth completely transformed, but the spacing due to the poor alignment has also been treated leading to a straight and brilliant smile.
6 porcelain veneers were prepared and cemented to a natural and beautiful white smile that the patient can be proud of.
The maxillary anterior teeth are now ideal in terms of color and contour.
