Before Treatment


Concern

A clicking and uncomfortable TM (jaw) joint that embarrassed this patient when chewing in public and increasing wear to her top front tooth resulting in a grayish, translucent appearance the patient found unattractive

Evaluation

A functional analysis determined that during normal chewing her top front teeth and bottom front teeth were colliding, causing pressure on the TM joint and excessive wear to her top front teeth.

Solution

We took an integrated Bio-functional approach to solve her problems. Orthodontic treatment moved the upper teeth out of the way during chewing reducing the TMJ discomfort and click. We created a more pleasing smile by placing porcelain veneers on her front teeth and porcelain crowns on her back teeth. The result made our patient feel great about the way she looked while at the same time she felt more confident and comfortable

Before Treatment


Concern

This patient was initially concerned about the wear on her front teeth. She also had questions about the color and alignment of both her front and back teeth. She had reached a point in her life where she wanted to feel better about the way her smile looked and felt a more attractive smile would make her feel better about herself.

Evaluation

A comprehensive cosmetic and functional evaluation that addressed issues of health, comfort and beauty helped us determine what steps to take to address our patients concerns. A bite imbalance was causing the wear on her front teeth. Upper and lower teeth were crowded out of their normal position and the natural aging process had resulted in teeth that were darker and greyer.

Solution

Balancing her bite alleviated the wear on her front teeth and also eliminated this patient’s daily headaches. Porcelain crowns on the back teeth and porcelain veneers on her front teeth resulted in what this patient described as a “life changing” experience, creating an aesthetic result that exceeded her expectations.

Before Treatment


Concern

This patient was concerned about the size of her front teeth and how short they appeared. She also expressed concern about headaches and muscle soreness. She felt she needed a comprehensive evaluation and treatment that would stop the pattern of “fill-fill-fill-cap”

Evaluation

A comprehensive evaluation discovered a bite imbalance leading to excessive tooth wear and muscle soreness.

Solution

Our treatment addressed issues of health, comfort and aesthetics. Balancing the bite eliminated muscle soreness and headaches while a combination of porcelain crowns and veneers restored form and function resulting in a comfortable, beautiful smile.

 

Before Treatment


Concern

This 22 year old broke her two front teeth at age 8 as the result of an accident. She had always been self conscious about her appearance when she smiled.

Solution

Porcelain veneers placed on this young lady’s 2 front teeth added the necessary length, restoring balance and symmetry, making this patient feel more self confident about her
smile.

 

Before Treatment


Concern

This 28 year old was concerned about how her smile would look in her wedding photos. She wanted to be sure her photos would capture a gorgeous smile that she would be proud of, every time she saw her wedding album! Her front teeth were unbalanced in terms of size, shape, color and symmetry.

Solution

4 porcelain veneers created a more balanced, a more symmetrical, and a more beautiful smile this patient felt comfortable with. Needless to say, her wedding pictures were awesome.

Before Treatment


Concern

This patient was embarrassed about the chipping and wear on her front teeth. Frequent attempts to solve her problem over a 20 year period were unsuccessful. She broke whatever type of filling was placed.

Evaluation

A comprehensive Biofunctional evaluation determined that her front teeth were colliding when she chewed resulting in wear to her front teeth and breakage of any fillings that were placed.

Solution

A comprehensive Biofunctional evaluation determined that her front teeth were colliding Invisible braces (Invisalign) more favorably repositioned her front teeth. Her bite was then adjusted so she closed the same way every time her teeth came together. 6 porcelain veneers placed on her upper front teeth gave this patient a gorgeous smile, one that she was proud of and made her feel good about herself.

 

Before Treatment


Concerns

This patient was concerned about the spaces between his teeth and wanted a smile that would make him feel better about the way he looked.

Evaluation

A comprehensive aesthetic evaluation related this patient’s smile to the rest of his face, and his teeth to his lips and gum tissue. A diagnostic template was made to determine the exact proportions needed to get the most pleasing results. We determined that orthodontic treatment was needed before any cosmetic treatment was done in order to move his teeth into the most favorable position prior to placing veneers.

Solution

Orthodontics was completed to correctly re-position the 6 front teeth in the face, the bite was balanced to limit the risk of abnormal wear and tear on his teeth, and 6 porcelain veneers were made by our ceramist to close all the spaces. They key to successful treatment in this instance was moving the teeth first in order to achieve a result that allowed proper size and proportion of the teeth at the end of treatment.

Before Treatment


Concerns

This young lady had an implant placed in the front part of her mouth. It was positioned without any consideration as to how it was going to look when completed. When the implant began to fail, the patient became increasingly embarrassed about the black spaces and how her smile appeared.

Solution

A multi-disciplinary approach to her care included treatment by an oral surgeon, orthodontist, and periodontist to better align the teeth and gums before we cosmetically improved her four front teeth.

Before Treatment


Concerns

Our patient was unhappy with the uneven wear on her front teeth.  She had noticed over the past several years that her front teeth were wearing at a faster rate, that the edges of her front teeth were chipped and that her teeth were becoming shorter.

Evaluation

After a comprehensive examination of how her teeth meet and chew it was determined that this patient had a bite imbalance that was causing her teeth to wear unevenly.  Her chewing system was out of balance; she had no GPS system that effectively told her brain how her teeth should meet while chewing.

Solution

First we determined how we could re-establish a GPS system that allowed her “chewing machine” to work without any interferences.  By balancing her bite and allowing all her back teeth to touch at the same time with the same amount of force, we reduced the risk that she would continue to wear her front teeth making them uneven and unattractive.

Then we placed 8 porcelain veneers on her upper front teeth; the treatment corrected the unevenness of her front teeth and gave her a more uniform, beautiful smile. One that she can be proud of.
