Smile Gallery

Welcome to our Smile Gallery, which contains before and after images of examples of procedures we perform in our office. Please click on a tab below to view them.

Bonding

Bonding is a process used to restore chipped, discolored, and misshapen teeth in a single visit. The results are very natural in appearance, but bonding does take more maintenance than porcelain veneers and may not last as long. Less tooth structure needs to be removed, which makes bonding a more conservative choice for some cases.

Crowns

Crowns are placed when the entire structure of a tooth is compromised or when missing teeth are replaced with fixed bridgework. The cases in the Crowns Gallery are examples of treatment that can be provided using porcelain crowns.

Dentures

This section of the gallery displays cases in which some or all of the patient’s teeth were missing. In these cases, traditional removable full or partial dentures were used to restore form and function to the patient.

Fillings

A filling replaces a portion of a tooth due to decay or breakage. Fillings may take one or two appointments. A filling that is made in your mouth takes one appointment and one that is made out of your mouth typically takes two appointments.

Implants

Implants are a very good option for replacing a single tooth or many teeth. This gallery is designed to show you some of the uses of dental implants.

Orthodontics

The goal of any orthodontic procedure is to align the teeth to ensure proper function and proper aesthetics. Please browse through our orthodontics gallery to see the types of results that can be achieved with orthodontic treatment.

The average treatment time for orthodontics is between eighteen to twenty-four months. However, the length of treatment will depend on the severity of the pre-existing condition, the type of treatment (removable appliances usually takes longer than fixed appliances) and the cooperation of the patient.

At the completion of the active part of orthodontic treatment, the braces are removed and retainers are made to keep the teeth stable in their new position. These appliances may be removable retainers or fixed wires that are placed behind the teeth. Retainers play an important role in orthodontic treatment since teeth tend to rotate and move toward their original position.

Periodontics

Our periodontal gallery contains images of the types of cases that might necessitate periodontal treatment. The purpose of this gallery is to display the types of results that can be achieved through periodontal surgery.

Root Canals

If the nerve of a tooth gets infected, it can be extremely painful. The goal of root canal treatment is to relieve pain, and restore your smile!

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are made from a ceramic material that is bonded to the front of teeth to change the tooth’s color, size, and/or shape. These must be made outside of the mouth and they require more than one visit. The natural results we can achieve with porcelain veneers are incredible. Please look though our Veneers Gallery to see some examples of the type of dentistry that we provide for our patients.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can either be done at home or in our office. The advantage of whitening at our office is that the results are achieved in about one hour. The advantage of whitening at home is that you don’t have to spend an hour in our office. However, it takes from one to two weeks to get the results at home that you get in one hour at our office.

Please take a look at the whitening cases to see examples of the type of results we can achieve for you.
