Solutions for Dental Problems
Our office has multiple solutions for dental problems. We offer a variety of options for patients who come to us with a desire to improve their appearance. Whenever possible we will take the most conservative and cost-conscious approach.
Depending on the circumstances we may only need to whiten teeth, reshape chipped edges, and use white fillings. However; occasionally we are presented with more complex problems, including severe wear, cracks, or extensive old fillings that need to be replaced.
When patients desire the greatest improvements, we can make for their dental appearance we offer full and partial mouth makeovers.

This may only involve whitening, reshaping chipped edges, and when necessary white fillings. On occasion, we have more involved problems such as severe wear, cracks, or extensive old fillings needing replacement.
When patients have a desire for as improved dental appearance as possible we offer full or partial mouth makeovers.
Full Mouth Restoratives
The first series of cases involve full mouth restoratives when virtually all teeth are involved and are needing improvement. These cases will include the visible front teeth, and back supporting teeth used for chewing.

Full Mouth Restorative Case 2
Full Mouth Restorative Case 3
This case involved the first four front teeth. These front teeth were chipped and had stained fillings with decay. We replaced these teeth with four all porcelain crowns, giving her an attractive smile.
One Arch Restorations
There are times when only one arch is involved. This patient had many decayed, discolored, and missing teeth. She wanted an improvement in her appearance and new her smile needed a makeover. The solution we took utilized a combination of materials, including porcelain bridges, veneers, and crowns.

10 Porcelain Crown Solution
A friend came to me with severely worn teeth and old, stained, cracked veneers. A solution of 10 porcelain crowns gave him an attractive and functional mouth.
Limited Number Of Teeth Restoration
Occasionally only a limited number of teeth are involved. Here we are not only looking for a structural solution, but also an esthetic one.
Our patient had front teeth that had been crowned at a different office. She was unpleased with the appearance and feel of her teeth and as a result of the procedure her teeth had become quite difficult to clean.
She also had a compounded problem that required one of her front teeth to be removed. Replacing a front tooth while keeping the surrounding gum tissue can be an extremely difficult process.
Our solution was to use an implant and crowns.
Here is a case where we did minimal dentistry with an enormous impact. The patient came to us because of the unaesthetic appearance of her teeth.
We designed a plan that included at home teeth whitening, placing a conservative porcelain veneer over one of her teeth and replacing an old crown with a new aesthetically appealing all-porcelain crown.
After applying these simple steps, you can see the dramatic improvement.
