Anthony had two old crowns that never matched well. When he chipped one of them he decided it was time to improve his smile.

Two new-metal free crowns and two porcelain veneers transformed his smile. Notice how much healthier his gums appear. Outstanding use of materials and a meticulous fit contribute to ideal esthetics and optimum gum tissue health. I think most would agree that his new smile is welcoming and engaging.

Four porcelain veneers were all that was needed to make his smile something he was proud of.

This patient had severe crowding and missing teeth. The missing teeth contribute to the lack of symmetry. Symmetry is one of the most important aspects of beauty.

A combination of new metal-free crowns, porcelain veneers, a metal free bridge and a well thought out plan transformed her smile. This entire transformation was accomplished in just a few short weeks. Beautiful provisional restorations during that time helped her preview her new smile and allowed for great communication.

Years of discoloration and recession that cause "Black Triangle" and enamel erosion.

Eight porcelain veneers were used. The other teeth were bleached. Wiland wanted to make his wife happy. He is smiling more thanks to her. Notice how the broader contact area between the teeth allowed for hiding the gaps near the gum line.

Betty had old style crowns with metal substructures and discolored margin areas. She also had silver fillings on some side teeth that showe through, making the teeth appear gray. The lower incisors had gray discoloration as well.

New, metal free crowns on 9 of her upper teeth and a combination of porcelain veneers and metal free crowns on her lower teeth.

Betty loves to smile. She gets plenty of compliments on her bright and fresh smile. She looks ten years younger!

Chris visited from out of town to get his teeth fixed before his brother's wedding. He had crowding, gum recession that led to "Black Triangles" and discolored teeth.

From start to finish in two weeks with beautiful provisional veneers. In the time between the 2 appointments, Chris's teeth were whitened then ten beautifully crafted veneers were permanently bonded onto his teeth. Notice the characterization of the surface which provided an age appropriate appearance (natural)

Besides the obvious yellowness to Patient K's teeth, he is missing his lateral incisor teeth (smaller incisors next to the two larger central incisors). As a result, the cuspid teeth ("eye teeth" or "canine teeth") are in the wrong position. This is not an uncommon problem and is treated in a variety of different ways depending on when the problem is discovered. He also did not like the chipped edges and the blotchy appearance to his back teeth.

The first thing that was done was Tooth Bleaching. Eight Porcelain Veneers were fabricated producing more natural tooth proportions and increased length. A Nightguard was fabricated to help prevent future wear and chipping.

Patient R. had severe tetracycline stains that she endured since her permanent teeth erupted. Four veneers were placed many years ago at a very young age on her incisor teeth. The years had passed and her teeth erupted to their final position showing some of her natural teeth at the gum area. She wanted to improve the front teeth and hide the discoloration of her cuspid teeth.

Six beautifully crafted Porcelain Veneers were all that was necessary to solve her years of embarrassment when she smiled. Patient R. literally cried happy tears when we revealed her new smile.

Future Considerations: When she can afford to we plan to place veneers on her lower front teeth as well. Fortunately, she doesn't show them much except sometimes during speech.

Patient B. had severe crowding of his front teeth. Although he was self conscious about his smile he was unwilling to go through the orthodontics needed to correct the alignment problems. We discussed leveling the height of the gum tissues with Cosmetic Crown Lengthening, but, he rarely showed his gum line when he smiled.

After bleaching his teeth five Porcelain Veneers were fabricated. With his beautiful new teeth he now smiles bigger and more often than he ever has.

Future Considerations: Although he does not often show his gum line when he smiles, an improvement to Patient B's smile can be made by doing some Cosmetic Crown Lengthening on the shorter left lateral incisor to show a little less gum tissue and create better harmony with the same tooth on his right side.

Patient D. was self-conscious about the spaces between his teeth. This patient has been in our practice for many years and knew of our commitment to quality and our reputation for cosmetic excellence. So, even though he was living in New York, when he was ready to get his esthetic concerns fixed he knew that the trip to California would be well worth his time.

Four Porcelain Veneers was all that was needed to make a very handsome smile for D. With ideal proportions and shading his teeth look incredibly natural. We were able to coordinate his appointments and the lab schedule to make his trip efficient and successful.

Patient V. presented with a concern about his discolored, chipped and crowded front teeth. One crown was present that did not match the other teeth.

He received tooth whitening with BriteSmile. A new crown and three veneers were fabricated that match each other perfectly and blend in with the remaining teeth.
