Fixing an embarrassing chip
This patient chipped his tooth and needed it repaired. This tooth had been chipped before and he wasn't happy with how it looked. We were able to quickly and conveniently repair the tooth with esthetic bonding.
This patient had old bonding done decades ago that had worn out and turned yellow. He was self-conscious with how it looked. We were able to fix it by removing the old filling and placing some beautiful new ones.
This patient was very embarrassed by her two front teeth. They had been chipped and dark for a few months and she was no longer confident about smiling. After working with her for a few hours, we were able to get her back to where she wanted to be.
This patient had multiple bad front teeth. We needed to try to save the teeth we could in a hurry. We did all these fillings in one day and had to remove gums as the cavities went below the gums. She was very happy with the end result.
This patient chipped her front tooth years ago and obviously didn't like it. We did a chairside veneer to match the color of the tooth and make it look like new. We didn't have to get her numb or remove any healthy tooth. She was really happy!
This patient had deep cavities in the front of his mouth. We opted to do a whiter filling than his tooth so that when he bleached later, the fillings would match better and we wouldn't have to redo them.
This patient suffered from severe fluorosis which causes the teeth to stain in this brown pattern. While crowns would have completely covered the stains, by layering some fillings and removing a bit of the stained tooth, we got to a good result. While it is far from perfect, I think most people would agree that the smile looks much better now. The patient was happy with her smile.
