Invisalign, Crown Lengthening, and Veneers
This patient presented to our office wanting to improve her smile. She was missing several teeth and was dissatisfied with her previous veneers. After consultation and work-up, we decided that the best course of treatment was to move her teeth to help better distribute the space. She then required a periodontal procedure called crown lengthening to reposition the gum tissue, exposing more tooth structure. The case was finished with porcelain veneers to create a beautiful result!
We are able to repair chipped or fractured teeth, conservatively, using composite filling materials. Using the newer generation of bonding materials, and some advanced techniques, we are able to create a nearly invisible finish line.
Dr. Paino's patient showed up unhappy with her existing crowns which were done over 10 years ago. The one on the left was an implant crown and the one on the right was a porcelain fused to metal crown. We whitened her teeth, then replaced her implant crown with an all ceramic abutment and cemented 2 highly esthetic all ceramic crowns.
This patient presented to our office with white and brown spots on his front teeth. While some dentist's may recommend veneers in this situation, Dr. Paino decided to treat the case conservatively. The white spots were treated with a product called "Opalustre", followed by a 1-month fluoride regimen to shrink the lesions. Then we performed a "Kor" whitening treatment, followed by composite bonding to completely eliminate all white and brown spots. This entire case was performed without a single shot!
This patient was born congenitally missing a lateral incisor on one side and she had a a "peg lateral" on the other side. She is not a candidate for dental implants until age 20. In her case we decided to whiten her teeth, bond the lateral incisor on one side, and replace the missing lateral incisor using an all porcelain "Maryland Bridge".
This patient presented to our office after many years of avoiding the dentist. We provided him with a deep cleaning including scaling and root planing. After we eliminated the gum infection and inflammation, we straightened his teeth using Invisalign, to both improve his appearance and eliminate plaque traps, making his teeth more self cleansing.
This patient was dissatisfied with the shape and proportion of her teeth. In order to increase the length of her teeth, she required a periodontal procedure known as crown lengthening to expose more tooth structure. We then placed 8 veneers to create an ideal result.
Before: Front (left) Central tooth has a poor restoration. Does not look natural and is not contoured properly to match the gumline of the rest of the teeth.
After: Replaced with an All Porcelain Crown (no metal). Tooth is now contoured to match the rest of the gumline. Restored tooth looks very natural and matches the shape and color of the patient's teeth.
Before: Patient unhappy with six Upper Anterior teeth. The edges are uneven, the gumline is uneven on the two central incisors, and the color/shade is not uniform. The two lateral incisor teeth have been previously restored and are poorly shaped.
After: Smile restored with 6 Upper Anterior Crowns that are properly shaped, gumline is uniform, and color/shade is the same for all 6 incisor teeth.
