Smile Makeover Case Histories
Smile Makeover: Porcelain Veneers
Large spaces and gaps between teeth can be a hereditary event or they can be caused by injury and trauma.
Orthodontics is a popular treatment that can be effective in some cases. Many patients, especially adults, prefer an alternative treatment that yields immediate permanent results that can have a very dramatic impact on cosmetic appearance.
The before photo reflects the degree of spacing between multiple teeth. Since the patient was focused primarily on the upper arch, premium porcelain components were handcrafted to replace problematic teeth and to close up spaces between adjacent teeth.
Smile Makeover: Implants, Crowns and Porcelain Veneers
Our patient, a “50 something” successful Cook County area businesswoman, had a high visibility profession that involved routine contact with business executives. She was becoming self conscious about her smile. Older restorations including gold onlays, porcelain with metal crowns, composite veneers and porcelain with metal bridges had all begun to fail or show signs of significant, yet normal wear.
Porcelain was fracturing off and certain wear factors reflecting a the development of a poor bite occlusion relationship. Overuse of teeth whitening compounds were affecting both her gum tissues and tooth enamel, causing additional problems of tooth sensitivity.
After consulting with the patient and providing her with several different treatment choices, it was decided that all restorative products and procedures would incorporate the use of premium porcelain materials. Her smile makeover included 10 veneers, 3 dental implants, and multiple crowns.
Not only does our patient have great looking teeth… but she is now able to smile more normally. Notice how the upper lip now travels up further, revealing a broader smile.
Smiling with confidence is now effortless for our patient. She senses it has improved her on the job functioning as a sales executive and has caused many of her acquaintances to comment on how dazzling her smile is.
