Santa Monica Gum Disease Patient After Procedure

Due to severe gum disease, this patient’s teeth had shifted. Out of fear of the dentist, she had been fearful having this issue addressed. My staff and I spent several visits working to gain her trust. Once she agreed to allow me to help her, I placed full coverage veneers on the teeth and splinted the veneers together to prevent further shifting. My patient was so happy with the results that she allowed me to fix the rest of her teeth.

Santa Monica Veneer Patient After Procedure

This patient presented with small teeth that became even shorter due to grinding. She also presented with a space between her teeth that she was unsatisfied with. Her teeth did not have harmony with her face and natural smile. When I do veneers, I make the patient temporaries mimicking the final shape of the crowns. In this case, we tried different temporaries, one with the space closed and one with the space open, to test her preferences. She decided she preferred her smile with the spaced closed. All ceramic veneers were placed on the four front teeth. The size, shape, and style of the veneers had harmony with the patient’s facial structure.

Patient C

After

Patient presented with front teeth that had chipped during childhood. To address this, the teeth were bleached using the GLO Science Professional Whitening System. We placed two front veneers that matched her newly bleached teeth. As the patient desired a more conservative approach, we only completed two veneers. This allowed us to keep relatively minimal dental work and minimal cost in mind while still achieving life changing results in her smile.

Patient D

Patient presented with teeth that had been worn down due to severe grinding at a young age. In addition, she had dark spaces between her teeth due to weakened enamel, attributed to when she had braces which can lead to weakened enamel and discoloration. We covered the spaces between the teeth and the six front teeth had custom veneers that were made longer which helped achieve facial harmony. We proposed a more conservative option as well as offering her an additional phase of veneers on the teeth adjacent to the original six. She opted for a more conservative process, which we agreed with. To complete this case, we used the GLO Science Professional Teeth Whitening System to make her smile whiter.

Patient E

This patient presented with teeth that lacked proper alignment. We placed custom veneers on her front six teeth to create a beautiful yet softer look to complement her natural facial features.

Patient F

After

This patient was dissatisfied with her front tooth not being straight, but was hoping to find a minimally invasive and cost effective approach. Despite the challenge of matching a single front tooth to a veneer, we were able to achieve a symmetric and aesthetic result by the help of our master ceramist who sat chairside to customize the veneer.

Patient G

This patient presented with front teeth that had been worn down by years of grinding. She previously had white fillings on her front teeth that were several years old and worn down as well. As she was young, we wanted to only do a minimal amount of dental work and maintain a natural looking smile. With the intention of using a conservative strategy for her, we placed two veneers on her front teeth and whitened her smile with the GLO Science Professional Teeth Whitening System.
