Before and After

    This is a great example of how your smile encompasses more than just your four to six front teeth. This professional lady wanted to replace the discolored crowns in her four front teeth and create better symmetry and appeal for her smile. To achieve her expectations, treatment was extended to include her eight front teeth and create ideal symmetry and even color in her smile zone. A combination of veneers, crowns and a gum lift to smooth out the uneven gum line produced this naturally beautiful smile. We also conservatively whitened her lower teeth for a nice shade match.

    Our patient in this example was congenitally missing her two upper lateral incisors, and the existing bridgework to replace those teeth was unnatural appearing and did not match her other teeth. A combination of two new all-porcelain bridges and porcelain veneers fully extended in her smile zone produced this beautiful result with a more dynamic, full, symmetrical smile.

    After

    While this patient had always wanted to eliminate the gray, translucent appearance of her teeth, whitening could never eliminate the problem. She chose to have her teeth restored with porcelain veneers; however, she specifically requested to maintain the natural shape of her teeth and simply have a whiter, less translucent smile. Ultrathin, conservative porcelain veneers were placed on the upper and lower teeth to create an excellent result. Our patient is ecstatic that most of her friends think she simply whitened her teeth and that it is not obvious that she has had extensive restoration of her smile.

    This beautiful young lady suffered from a severe tooth grinding habit. Braces were utilized to correct general tooth position, then a cosmetic gum lift was performed to improve the length of the teeth. This was followed by a combination of dental implants, porcelain crowns and veneers for her upper teeth, and conservative bonding for the lowers to create this stunning smile makeover. When her father saw her for the first time after restoration of her teeth, there were reports that he cried.

    This good friend and dental colleague of Dr. Mullens suffered from tooth grinding and wear. Notice how the natural teeth were wearing out on the edges, but the existing crowns on the central two teeth were not, creating a very uneven smile. A combination of porcelain veneers and all-ceramic crowns were placed to restore a handsome smile.

    This lady had an aging smile as a result of excessive wear. She had lost the length of her teeth from both the edges and the gum line, creating very short front teeth and a gummy smile. A combination of a gum lift and porcelain veneers and crowns for both her upper and lower teeth resulted in this natural, youthful, attractive smile.

    This lady is in the dental industry. She had some very attractive existing veneers, but two were fractured and she desired a brighter, more youthful smile. New veneers with a brighter shade and better shape were placed to create this vibrant, beautiful smile.

    This is an excellent example of how a smile transformation does not always have to be a major restoration to get great results. Simple tooth whitening treatment with our KOR® Deep Bleaching produced this outstanding result.

    This younger lady had a failing denture that she desperately wanted to replace with a more stable solution. She hated the idea of wearing a denture at her age. Dental implants were utilized to anchor her new appliance, and she has tremendous confidence not only in her beautiful smile, but also that she will never again have to wear a loose denture.

    This is another great example of how simple treatments can sometimes make such a difference in a smile. Our KOR® tooth whitening system was combined with simple and conservative resin bonding to achieve this beautiful, affordable result.

    We have practiced metal-free dentistry in Dr. Mullens' office for over fifteen years. In a single visit, failing, leaky, old amalgam silver fillings such as these can be replaced with natural resin fillings that are both durable and improve the strength of the teeth. We often eliminate sensitivity from these old restorations immediately upon completion of treatment.

    After

    This young man was unhappy with the excessive spacing in his smile. Orthodontic treatment could not solve this problem because his teeth were simply too small. In a single visit, this dramatic smile transformation took place with conservative bonding that required no alteration of his existing teeth.
