Mrs. Palazzo had older crowns that had served her well for many years. She was unhappy with the ‘dark lines at the gum’ and the color of her teeth. We sedated Mrs. Palazzo and prepared all of her top teeth for new porcelain crowns.

‘I never knew how much this would improve the way I feel about myself-” were her comments at her last check-up.
Longevity: 10+ years.

Implant retained denture

JoAnne had severe wear on her old denture. The gum had begun to change color, the denture was very loose, and her bottom remaining teeth were severely decayed and worn.

A new upper denture was fabricated, and a new ‘over denture’ made. Two of the lower teeth were treated with root canals and ‘ball joints’ were placed to ‘lock’ the lower denture into place while in use. In addition, we placed two implants in her lower jaw to help stabilize and hold the denture.

Dentures can be some of the most beautiful of dental restorations.

 

Bridges, Crowns, and Precision Partials

Charles had a history of HEAVY tooth clenching, and multiple lost teeth as a youth. His bite was off, and he was having problems wearing his partial dentures.

We Completed what is known in dentistry as a ‘Full Mouth Rehab’, correcting his bite, replacing his teeth, and improving his ability to function dramatically.

This involved multiple Crowns, Multiple bridges, and a bite splint, to help him get used to a new bite.

Veneers are a conservative, beautiful way to ‘makeover’ one’s smile. As you can see, our patient had dark, stained, square teeth with spaces between them. Five thin (contact lens thin) ceramic veneers were permanently affixed to her front teeth. What a difference :).

 

Longevity: Approx 15+ years.

Anya had ‘bonding’ done over and over again for 10 years. She reported that it was constantly getting stained, and keeping her from smiling, as she was becoming very conscious of her discolored teeth.

We combined the use of 2 veneers, and 2 all ceramic crowns to give her a beautiful new smile.

 

Bonding

Tim spent 30 years with ‘spaces’ in his smile. He made an appointment on a Thursday stating he was planning to attend a high school class reunion two days later, and didn’t want to go without correcting his smile.

In less that an hour, we had placed white filling material, commonly known as ‘bonding’, on two of his ‘crooked’ teeth. We also reshaped the uneven teeth in his smile with simple enameloplasty (technical for ‘filed them down slightly’).

Bonding typically lasts 3-7 years before needing replacement.

 

Gum Surgery/Crowns

Mary had knocked her front tooth in a swimming accident as a child. Her dentist was able to save the tooth, but it beame a cosmetic problem later on in life. In addition she had developed an infection in the tooth that had been damaged and was suffering from severe pain.

We were able to raise her gum tissue through cosmetic gum surgery, retreat a root canal, place a post and bond 4 all porcelain restorations to her front teeth to correct the asymmetry in her smile.
