  • This patient told me that she had wanted a pretty smile her entire life.  She had intrinsically stained teeth because of medicine she had been given when she was a child.
  • I suggested she have more crowns a little further back so that when she smiled, the side teeth wouldn’t show, but she was very happy with the results.
  • This was a life-changing event for her.

Crowns and Invisalign

  • This patient came to my office looking to fix his bite and to have cosmetic dentistry done on his front teeth because of the way his teeth formed when he was a kid.
  • He came to us with an extra space between his front teeth and between the upper and lower front teeth (called an open bite).
  • Placing crowns on someone with an open bite would result in teeth that look extra long in the front, so we decided to move his teeth into a better position first with Invisalign.
  • After Invisalign, I did 6 crowns on the upper front teeth. The crowns not only closed the gaps he had between his teeth but cosmetically gave him a really great smile.

Laser Gummy Smile Reduction

  • This patient asked me to help her with a couple of things. She wanted me to reduce her gummy smile and she also wanted her front teeth to be a normal size.
  • She came into the office thinking she would ask for veneers, but I explained to her that a laser gummy smile reduction might be enough to make it aesthetically pleasing. I asked her to give the gummy smile reduction a chance, and once we were done, she was very happy with the results.
  • The laser gummy smile reduction is much more conservative than veneers and costs much less too.
  • I performed gummy smile reduction using a dental laser. The laser is very precise and very minimal bleeding occurs. This is a much more conservative method than the old-school surgery with scalpels and results in almost no discomfort afterward.
  • Below you can see the before pictures and immediately afterwards pictures. All of this was accomplished within 20 minutes. The patient had practically no discomfort afterward.
  • This was accomplished only with a dental laser; no Botox or fillers were used.

Invisalign

  • This patient asked me to straighten her teeth. She had already consulted with an orthodontist, and he told her she needed jaw surgery to correct her anterior open bite.
  • I explained to her that the vast majority of people do not follow through with jaw surgery to correct their bite, that Invisalign is a great alternative to jaw surgery, and that I could correct her bite enough to give her a great chance to keep all of her teeth for the rest of her life.
  • This patient decided to do Invisalign and was in aligners for just over a year.

Veneers and Invisalign

  • This patient is in sales and wanted a healthy, nice-looking smile that would last a long time.
  • Because he had a bad bite I had to use Invisalign to move his teeth into a more healthy position and then did 6 veneers on his upper front teeth.
  • It is of utmost importance to have a bite where the teeth are aligned properly and are properly balanced. Otherwise, veneers and crowns may not last as long as you like.
  • You can see how the facial features changed when his teeth were positioned in a healthy, balanced manner. His smile is bigger, and he can now show more teeth when he smiles.

  • He then asked me to do veneers on his teeth to give him a great smile.
  • Now he smiles all the time.
