Orthodontics would be the treatment of choice, but she did not want to do that. Veneers were her only other option.
Many old porcelain to metal crowns have the dark line along the gums. Getting rid of the silver/mercury fillings also brightens the whole smile.
The colour of the teeth and the old dental work made it necessary to restore all the teeth.
The upper teeth showing the wear. The darker yellow colour is where all the enamel was worn off exposing the inner dentin of the tooth. An amazing dental makeover!
Gum reshaping and veneers were used to improve her smile.
One of the more extreme results. We were able to make the teeth straight without removing any teeth, or doing any root canals. We are often amazed ourselves at what is possible.
This is a combination bleaching and veneer result. Four front teeth were veneered and the rest have been whitened.
One of the more dramatic results we have been able to get from the bleaching
All of the missing teeth were replaced here with implant supported crowns and bridges. The worn lower teeth were all crowned. It is very rare that we cannot save a tooth these days.
You can see the extreme wear on these teeth in the before picture.
This lady’s front teeth were sticking out much more that in appears. She did not want to take the time for orthodontics, so we placed 8 porcelain crowns.
Bleaching alone would not have been able to get the teeth this white, but veneers can – and the change is permanent.
Teeth grinding at night is very common and can result in severe damage to teeth. Here we placed porcelain crowns and veneers to restore her smile.
These are the results we can get from our “Deep Bleaching™” technique.
Laser gum reshaping, porcelain veneers were used here. Yes! That is a diamond she wanted in that tooth!
A close up view, it is amazing how this can be done without affecting the teeth underneath.
Laser gum recontouring, replacing old crowns with bonded porcelain crowns and veneers gives an amazing change.
One of our most dramatic changes! This is life changing dentistry and we love being able to do this.
In this example, we were able to do some instant orthodontics, and cover the discolourations at the same time
Notice what a change filling in the spaces with these no preparation veneers can make to a smile.
A close up of the upper teeth. The previous metal containing crowns and bridges were replaced with metal free, and the colour was lightened to what our patient wanted.
Four front teeth had porcelain placed to lengthen, change colour and get rid of the old bonding on the front tooth.
Porcelain veneers and two appointments later, a new bright, white, perfect smile totally transform this smile.
No moustache needed now to hide these teeth!
The top teeth are porcelain and do not change colour, the bottom teeth are much lighter after bleaching.
Porcelain veneers and gum recontouring turn this good smile into a great one.
Another example where older yellow crowns were replaced with more natural looking all porcelain crowns.
More no-preparation veneers
Another smile makeover
Deep Bleaching™ method has given us the best results in 20 years of bleaching teeth.
Example 1: The missing lower teeth were replaced with bridges.
Even if orthodontic treatment was done, this crooked front tooth would still be very dark. He chose the instant porcelain fix instead.
Many people think that the only way to straighten teeth is to have orthodontics, but there is another option. 8 porcelain veneers can make the teeth look beautful and change the colour at the same time.
Worn teeth make someone look much older than they really are. Porcelain veneers which are much easier than plastic surgey!
I think these pictures speak for themselves.
Another example where only the lowers were whitened, the contrast before and after against the upper teeth shows the amount of whitening obtained.
2 Appointments, porcelain veneers and crowns change an old looking smile to a much more youthful one.
The lower jaw, missing teeth replaced with implant supported crowns and bridges.
Implants were used to replace the lower missing teeth and crowns to build up all the worn teeth.
Another example of a combination of gum recontouring and lumineers (no-preparation veneers)
Here we filled in the spaces and made the front teeth much more even in length. A stunning change, and our patient was thrilled.
Another example of extreme wear, showing how restoring the teeth gives a much more youthful appearance.
