Porcelain-Veneers-Before-After-Amy

We’d like to introduce you to Amy …

Problem:

She’s a 35 year-old woman, who hates the gaps between her teeth and the color of her teeth. She didn’t like to smile because she felt her smile “looked ugly” when she did.

Solution:

After her consultation with Dr. Anderson, they decided to add 4 Porcelain Veneers to her top 4 middle teeth.

Process:
  • Upper two pictures show her before pictures with gaps and stained teeth.
  • Middle two pictures show what porcelain veneers look like outside the mouth.
    • Notice the level of detail and expertise in these handcrafted veneers that were created by our Master Porcelain Artist.
  • Bottom two pictures are the final close ups of the veneers showing Amy’s beautiful and natural smile.
    • Notice the gaps or spaces in her smile are closed. The whiter teeth blend well with her natural color. 
Outcome:

Amy was very satisfied and when she looked at her new smile in the mirror when we were finished, she said that it was “Life-Changing” for her!

We Believe: Happy People Should Smile. 

Happy people spread their happiness to others and sometimes, it’s as simple as a smile. In Amy’s case, her whole life changed when she had the confidence to smile. Smiling affects your overall well being and the well being of everyone around you.

smile-spotlight-ann

We’d like to introduce you to Ann …

Problem:

A 35 year old woman at the time, Ann didn’t like to smile because she had always hated the brownish color of her teeth. Dental bleaching was performed first; however, due to the see-thru composition of her teeth, we still did not get the uniform natural whiteness that she was looking for with bleaching.

Solution:

After her consultation with Dr. Anderson, they decided to move forward with a procedure to place 10 micro-thin porcelain veneers. The final result shows a beautiful smile. The gum tissue looks pink and healthy. The teeth do not look bulky or fake. She can eat anything she wants and smiles all the time.

Process:
  • Upper picture (before photo)  was taken over 15 years ago. The translucent nature of Ann’s teeth is easy to see, as is the staining of her teeth.
  • Bottom picture is the final close up of the veneers showing Ann’s beautiful and natural smile after 15 years of use.
    • Notice some of the sharp edges were rounded out and softened  on the front 6 teeth
    • Notice, after 15 years, her smile still looks great without any signs of wear or breakdown
Outcome:

These photos show up close results that illustrate what is possible. The results were beautiful. Ann smiles all the time now, because she has a beautiful smile and loves the natural color of her teeth. Properly performed and with proper care, veneers last for years. As you can see in Ann’s after picture that was taken after 15 years of use. Her smile still looks great without any signs of wear or breakdown.

We Believe: Our Smile has Health Benefits 

It’s simple … when you like your smile, you smile more! Not to mention, we know the health benefits of smiling — everything from the release of endorphins that affect our mood to catching someone smiling at us and automatically smiling back. A smile truly is contagious and we LOVE it when our patients LOVE to SMILE!

smile-spotlight-jim

We’d like to introduce you to Jim …

Problem:

At the age of 45, Jim didn’t like to smile because he didn’t like his yellow-colored teeth. He also felt like they looked fake. He had a collection of old crowns and flings on his front four teeth that were done at different times creating a mismatch of colors and sizes.

Jim was also experiencing unhealthy, bleeding gums because his old dental work had not been properly contoured or shaped. There was also a gap between one of the crowns and the tooth which leads to gum inflammation and decay, which causes bleeding.

Solution:

After Jim’s consultation with Dr. Anderson, they decided to move forward with a procedure to place 4 custom-made porcelain crowns. We created custom crowns with a natural color and length. Now his gum tissue is pink and healthy. Jim’s final result shows a beautiful smile.

Process:
  • Upper picture (before photo) shows the short length and different colors of his old crowns.
    • Notice you can see that it just doesn’t look right at the gum line; they old crowns are bulky and there are gaps.
  • Bottom picture is the final close up of the 4 new crowns showing Jim’s beautiful and natural smile.
    • Notice some of the level of detail and craftsmanship that can be obtained with porcelain crowns.
      • In order for crowns to fit correctly, they have to be the exact Contour (or shape) — not too big, not too small in order to support the gums. They also have to have closed margins (or no gapping) which creates DKA and inflammation.  Crowns must be classy glossy smooth to prevent plaque buildup.
      • When crowns are done following these protocols, gums will naturally stop bleeding because the body senses that the normal tooth is smooth, shiny and normal sized. Then, the systems kick into place that allow for healing.
    • Crowns can improve the length and symmetry of a smile.
    • Crowns can cover teeth that are misshapen or severely discolored.
Outcome:

These photos show up close before and after results that demonstrate what is possible and the level of detail that is available with hand-crafted porcelain crowns. Jim smiles all the time now, because he has a beautiful smile and loves the natural color and shape of his teeth. With proper care, porcelain crowns last for years.
