Accident, grinding or ....we have extensive experience restoring teeth no matter the cause. Below are just a few of the many cases we've rehabilitated or reconstructed to revive a healthy smile.

 

restore worn dentition

Before treatment Young female with chronic history of bruxism (teeth grinding). She had significant wear on her maxillary incisors and canines. Her main concern was regaining her full smile for her wedding.

After treatment After carefully considering her bite and bruxism, a combination of aesthetic all porcelain crowns on the incisors coupled with tooth colored bonding on the canines to restore proper canine guidance and protect the new porcelain crowns from fracture (not to mention her back molars from future wear).

esthetic crown lenghtening

Before treatment Patient presented with unusual gum recession upper left incisor that was undesirable to the patient. Also, the patient’s previous crowns were low and not in line with her other teeth. She wanted to address both the gum recession and the asymmetrical crowns on her top four teeth.

During treatment: To achieve optimal esthetics, crown lengthening, or raising the gum tissue on the upper incisors was necessary. The removal of the existing crowns and placement of temporary crowns was necessary to visualize the final crown/gum height.

Before treatment Patient suffered catastrophic fracture of a previous endodontically treated incisor.

During treatment After the remaining root was extracted, a temporary bridge was fabricated using the adjacent teeth (which happened to be implants) as suitable bridge abutments, until the gum healed.

After treatment After eight weeks of healing, the definitive aesthetic all porcelain bridge was cemented.

full mouth rehabilitation

Before All maxillary (upper) teeth and most mandibular (lower) teeth presented with severe decay. Patient was young (20's) and desperately wanted to keep his teeth. Treatment involved several appointments of decay removal, root canals, periodontal (gum) surgery to lengthen his teeth, and the extraction of the second molars (non restorable, too much decay). All the maxillary teeth and mandibular posterior (back) teeth were prepared for aesthetic porcelain fused to metal crowns.

replacement of missing front tooth and deteriorated upper crowns

Before treatment Patient experienced isolated periodontal bone loss to her upper right central incisor. Also noted were improperly shaped and ill fitting anterior crowns.

During treatment After the affected tooth was extracted and the dental implant was placed, a temporary cemented bridge was fabricated to avoid wearing anything removable during the course of treatment. Esthetic crown (gum) lengthening was performed on the incisors to allow a better match of the incisal crowns to the canines

After treatment Once the gums had healed to their definitive gum height, and the implant achieved full osseous integration, three aesthetic all porcelain crowns were fabricated and cemented on the incisors, and a custom porcelain abutment and all porcelain crown was fabricated for the dental implant.
