Smile Transformation

The Backstory:

Jose was born in Mexico and has been driving semi-trucks in the United States for 10 years.  He noticed that his front teeth had become severely worn over time due to grinding and clenching his jaw at night. 

Before Therapy

The Smile Transformation Process:

Jose underwent orthodontic therapy for about 10 months to reposition his lower front teeth.  After a whitening treatment, non-metal, porcelain crowns were placed on the upper, front 6 teeth which took about  2 weeks to complete.    

After Therapy

The Backstory:

Janet, age 60, noticed that her teeth were looking shorter than when she was younger.  She was concerned that edges of her teeth were no longer straight and the color had become more yellow.  

Before Therapy

The Smile Transformation Process:

After designing Janet's smile to determine the length of her front teeth, 10 non-metal, procelain crowns were placed on the upper teeth.  6 months later, Janet decided to have 10 crowns placed on the lower teeth as well.      

After Therapy

The Backstory:

Thomas is an young, HVAC technician and has never like the spaces between his front teeth.  Another concern he had was the color variation between his teeth.  

Before Therapy

The Smile Transformation Process:

One option that was considered was to move teeth orthodontically to close the spaces, however Thomas was concerned about wearing braces for 12 months or more.  Porcelain veneers was the next best option that would allow the desired outcome.  Laser gum recontouring was performed to give the appearance of longer teeth. 8 porcelain veneers were placed closing spaces and giving a consistant color.

After Therapy

The Backstory: 

Melissa is a small business owner in her 50s.  She has never liked the color or shape of the two crowns on her front teeth.  

Before Therapy

The Smile Transformation Process:

The two existing crowns on Melissa's front teeth were large in comparison to the rest of her teeth which made her other teeth appear small.  The grey color appearance of the existing crowns was due to the metal substructure under the porcelain.  Laser gum recontouring was performed to even out the gum line before placement of 8 all-porcelain crowns.
