Issue: Severely compromised remaining natural teeth with multiple areas of decay, failing previous dental work, missing teeth, unaesthetically restored lower front implants, and extremely worn and chipped upper front teeth.
Solution: Through a detailed plan of bone grafting, implant placement, and new crowns on the remaining natural teeth – a dramatic restoration of function and cosmetic appearance was possible.
Issue: Discolored natural teeth, mismatched materials and colors of previous dental work, uneven lengths of side front teeth, cavities along the gum line of lower teeth.
Solution: A diagnostic plan was developed to completely restore the appearance and function of her teeth. New crowns of a consistent color and proper length were placed on each tooth after the removal of cavities and failing past work.
Issue: She was bothered with the display of metal and dark roots under old crowns on the lower front teeth. A comprehensive exam also revealed an infected implant, a dysfunctional bite, and several areas of decay along the gum line under old crowns.
Solution: A full mouth restoration after deprogramming and relaxing her muscles to get a level and functionally proper bite. Crown lengthening was performed to even the gum line along her top front teeth, a non –restorable tooth on her lower left was replaced with an implant, and new crowns were placed on all remaining natural teeth and implants on the upper back teeth to repair the cavities, level both arches, and cover the teeth to the gum line so no undesirable color transitions were visible.
Issue: Multiple failed rounds of restoring natural teeth with crowns and root canals had left Karen frustrated that problems were continually developing.
Solution: After detailed planning and lengthy discussion, she decided removing her natural teeth and replacing them with implant-supported hybrid dentures was her best option. Multiple implants were placed in her upper and lower arches and beautiful, custom prostheses were fabricated to securely attach to those implants. The result was a brilliant smile, a perfect functional bite, and completely secured prostheses that cannot become loose on their own.
Issue: A broken and discolored lower front tooth with an infected root canal was becoming symptomatic and she did not like the appearance of it. Consistent wear and chipping across the tops of the front four lower teeth was also becoming concerning.
Solution: A diagnostic plan was put in place to functionally change the way her teeth bite together, eliminating the cause of the lower wear and chipping. This involved making her back teeth taller with conservative bonded onlays and restoring the implant on the lower left. The discolored front tooth was then extracted and a bridge and new crowns were placed to restore the cosmetic appearance she desired.
Issue: Missing teeth, visible roots above front crowns, and upper front teeth closing behind the lower front teeth. He wanted a natural looking smile and to laugh without concern of how his teeth looked.
Solution: The combination of tooth loss and positioning of remaining teeth made it impossible to satisfy his goals and keep the upper teeth at the same time. Braces were placed on the lower teeth to improve positioning, the upper teeth were removed, six implants were placed, and a zirconia hybrid was secured in place on the implants.
