And here’s another of the veneer photos.  The tissue now has had a few weeks to fully mature, so  you can see how the papilla (the piece of gum tissue we have between our teeth that extends down to a point) has begun to drop into place.  Again, no sensitivity and one happy, happy patient!!

Restoring Front teeth

So this gentleman is not ready to crown his teeth, but there is a large fracture.  It doesn’t hurt, but esthetically it looks less than ideal.  He’d like a temporary ‘fix’ until we can crown it (which, again, he is not ready to do right now).  What to do???

Sometimes people are not ready to restore their front teeth.  There might be a need, whether from fractures, wear, large fillings….any number of reasons.  But maybe they just are not psychologically or financially in a position to really ‘fix’ their teeth.  Here’s a quick example:  This tooth fractured, but the gentleman does not want to crown his front teeth just yet.  So….what to do??

And one last look at our before-and-after of the happy patient:

New bonding

This tooth needed to look better.  We ruled out a crown or veneer, and rebonding the edge was the most conservative treatment.  The other teeth have some dramatic characterization so this was a tricky procedure.  But, when we finished, the patient was excited about the final result.

Cavities-filled

And here’s the final result, only a few minutes later.  Look how nicely the shade of the filling blends with his tooth color.  And the little redness at the gumline is from finishing and polishing the filling in this area and should heal uneventfully within a few short days.

Gum-line Fillings

This is a quicky, but shows how nice a little bonding can make a big change. These two teeth obviously have cavities at the gumline:

Old crowns

This pretty patient had been very happy with the crowns on her front teeth for MANY years.  But recently they started to show signs of aging, and we decided it was time to replace them.  When you look closely, they seem to be angled slightly to one side and there are spaces that have developed between them.

Front teeth-after bleaching and bonding

We resurfaced the bonding on her lateral incisor, leaving the existing bonding on her canine tooth (That will be resurfaced later).  The change was dramatic. It was an easy fix and got this young lady off to college with a new, brighter smile.  A few years from now we’ll consider some conservative veneers.

Cavity in Tooth

But, when the tooth is opened up, look what’s inside:

This was NOT evident when you looked at the tooth (see below) and was only found with an x-ray.
