Before and After Pictures
Patient's new smile
Patients often ask how they will look
with temporaries during treatment. We
do our best to make temporaries that
not only protect the teeth and look
natural, but also serve as a preview of
our final restoration.
We use our temporaries to determine
whether our final crowns should be
longer, shorter, lighter, darker for the
best final result that we can achieve.
From a cosmetic perspective, one of the most
difficult procedures is to replace a single broken
front tooth with a crown. Color, size shape and
subtle characterization of the crown have to
match the other teeth to functionally and
cosmetically recreate a natural looking tooth.
New patients will often come to our office feeling very embarassed, saying things like,
"You've never seen anything this bad before". Well, we have. This patient's mouth
was restored with a combination of crowns, bonding, partial denture and bleaching.
Eating is much easier, and he has a very nice smile.

Sometimes very conservative treatment can give a patient what she wants, and result in nice cosmetic
improvement. This patient simply wanted her front teeth to look whiter, straighter and without large
spaces, but did not want crowns or laminates. Her teeth were whitened, lengthened and rebonded.

Crowns and a conventional bridge restored this patient' top teeth. To
avoid drilling health teeth to support a bridge, implants are preferred as
replacements whenever possible.
