This patient came to us with broken down and decayed teeth. After removing the decayed tooth structure, tooth-colored composite fillings were placed to restore function. Well placed fillings can last many years if properly maintained.
As we age, gum recession can lead to unsightly "black triangles" in our smile. Fortunately, we are specially trained in providing patients with the Bioclear® method. This allows us to cosmetically bond the black triangles without cutting the tooth, leading to a stronger and much more pleasing look. The procedure is relatively painless and can be done in just a few hours.
Cosmetic bonding can be used to correct many problems, and one is to correct tooth discolorations. In this case, the patient had pitted and discolored enamel after orthodontic treatment. This minimally invasive technique was used to replace the damaged enamel with composite filling material matched and blended to the patients natural tooth.
"Black triangles" between the teeth can often make a smile look aged. Through the use of the Bioclear® bonding method, these unsightly triangles can disappear. This technique allows composite resin to be adhered to the tooth, without removing any sensitive tooth structure.
This young lady was unhappy with the spaces between her teeth and wanted a change. Cosmetic bonding is a procedure to adhere tooth-colored material to the teeth to improve their appearance. The advantages of this procedure are no tooth structure is removed, it's more affordable than crowns or veneers, and the results are instant!
This patient wanted to improve his smile due to some older fillings that were breaking down. The fillings were initially placed to help control decay, and after he was able to improve his home care it was time to place a more permanent restoration. The teeth were prepared and all-ceramic crowns were inserted on the front six teeth, greatly improving the aesthetics.
This patient had an old metal filling that was decayed and failing. After removing the existing filling and unhealthy tooth structure, a tooth-colored composite filling was placed.
This patient had an old and failing metal filling, and there were visible cracks on her back molar. She wanted to restore the tooth with something that looked natural, so a ceramic crown was chosen. These types of restorations are both strong and beautiful.
Julie came to see us about her problematic teeth. She was having difficulty eating and was embarrassed to smile. After removing her failing remaining teeth, upper and lower dentures were made, dramatically improving her ability to chew as well as her smile. For many patients, dentures are an affordable way to quickly improve function and aesthetics.
Dental Implants are an amazing option to replace a missing tooth. Not only do they improve chewing ability, but they also look and feel similar a natural tooth. It can be be hard to tell which is the real tooth vs the implant!
Lee came to us with severely worn front teeth. Due to cost and time constraints, he decided to have bonded tooth-colored fillings placed instead of crowns. Old fillings and decay were removed before building up and lengthening the teeth with cosmetic bonding. In one appointment he had a beautiful new smile!
This patient had a painful, broken filling that also had a substantial amount of decay underneath. The fractured fragment was lodged into the gums between the teeth and was very irritating. The metal filling was removed and the decay was cleaned out before placing a tooth-colored composite filling.
Agnes came to us with a severely worn and decayed lower molar. She wanted her tooth restored but also wanted the quickest and least expensive treatment. To accommodate her wishes, the tooth was cleaned up and a composite crown was directly built on the remaining structure. In all, the treatment took less than 1 hour and didn't require a second visit.
For patients with more than a few missing teeth, dentures and partial dentures are an affordable way to regain their smile and improve chewing. This particular patient received a complete denture on top and a partial denture on the bottom.
This patient had a tooth-colored composite filling that had fractured and was loose (black arrow). One of the benefits of a composite is that it can be repaired. The loose piece was removed and more composite was added to regain the natural shape of the tooth. Lastly, the entire filling was polished to a smooth finish. Treatment like this can be quick, painless, and inexpensive!
This patient had an old metal filling that was starting to leak and had recurrent decay. There were also some cracks forming on the tooth. The filling was replaced with a new tooth-colored composite filling that will serve the patient well. The blue marks are from the paper used to check the bite and wash off.
This patient suffered from a combination of acid erosion and grinding, which led to accelerated wear on her lower right molar. The enamel had been lost on the chewing surface and the underlying tooth structure was exposed. A conservative tooth-colored composite filling was placed to restore function and protect the tooth.
This patient came to us with a fractured tooth and a large existing metal filling. The tooth was also sensitive to cold. After removing all the old filling materials and smoothing, a tooth-colored composite filling was used to repair the tooth. The tooth should now function for years to come, and the temperature sensitivity greatly improved.
