Porcelain Crowns


Before & After

Patient A: Prior to replacing old, discolored anterior crowns, Zoom In-Office whitening was used to achieve an overall lighter shade. Afterward, the new all porcelain crowns were fabricated in the new color. To maintain this level of whitening of the natural teeth, tray touch-ups must be done on a regular basis. Treatment completed October 2006


Porcelain Crowns


Before & After

Patient B: Previously, the upper front teeth had been treated with plastic bonding which over the years had become chipped and stained. The shade of the lower front teeth was acceptable to use as a match for new upper restorations. The objective was to improve the appearance of the upper front teeth and reduce the space between them. Treatment consisted of four all-porcelain crowns on the maxillary front teeth.Treatment completed in April 2006


Porcelain Crowns


Before & After

Patient C: This patient disliked the appearance of her upper front teeth. The front four were badly shaped with very large old tooth colored fillings in them. Zoom In-Office bleaching was used to whiten all her teeth and then four porcelain crowns on the front teeth completed her smile makeover.


Porcelain Veneers


Before & After

Patient D: This patient had been living with old, worn out veneers on her upper six front teeth. They were badly stained around the edges and the gums had receded with time. Six new lighter colored veneers changed her whole smile. Treatment completed October 2006


Porcelain Veneers


Before & After

Patient E: The midline spacing and chipped edges of the upper front teeth really bothered this patient. Several of these teeth had large old fillings. A combination of five veneers and crowns matched to the lighter color of the existing posterior crowns created this beautiful result. Treatment completed August 2007


Porcelain Veneers


Before & After

Patient F: The black space at the gum line between the front two upper teeth bothered this patient. Space was eliminated by stripping off the old worn out bonding and changing the shape of the teeth using porcelain veneers. Zoom In-Office bleaching lightening the overall color first. Treatment completed July 2008


Zoom In-Office Bleaching


Before & After

Patient G: The desire was to brighten and remove the "yellowish" cast of this mouth. As the starting shade was relatively light, it was uncertain how many shade levels patient could lighten. However, Zoom bleaching achieved a significant improvement. The patient continues to bleach at home using home trays. Treatment completed in March 2007


Zoom In-Office Bleaching


Before & After

Patient H: This patient was unhappy with the yellowish cast of his teeth. Zoom In-Office whitening made a big difference. Treatment completed December 2006


Re-Contouring


Before & After

Patient I: Simple reshaping of this patient's upper front teeth greatly improved this patient's smile. The original unsightly appearance was caused by excessive grinding of her teeth. So this reshaping was followed up with a bite splint (or night guard) to protect the teeth from wearing back down again.Treatment completed August 2010


Composite Bonding


Before & After

Patient J: Composite bonding was used to correct these badly chipped, decayed front edges. As this was caused primarily by night grinding (bruxism) a bite splint was made afterward to prevent premature wear of these fillings. Treatment completed May 2010


"Gummy" Smile


Before & After

Patient K: Patient wished to improve the "gummy" appearance of her smile. After much thought and discussion, it was decided to focus on the two upper front teeth. First, she was referred to the periodontist for soft tissue reshaping. After healing, the teeth were lightened with at-home tray whitening. Finally two new all porcelain crowns were made and custom tinted at the lab. Treatment completed in March 2008


Fixed Bridgework


Before & After

Patient L: This patient lost two front teeth to advanced gum disease. Following treatment to stabilize that problem, a fixed bridge was fabricated to fill in space. A whiter color and better-shaped teeth enhance this restored smile. Treatment completed June 2007


Implant Retained Fixed Bridgework


Before & After

Patient M: This patient lost her lower front four teeth to decay. In addition, the next two teeth required root canals, posts, and crowns. The front four teeth were restored by placing two implants and fabricating a fixed bridge. The before photo shows the implant abutments used to hold the bridge. Treatment completed January 2008


Implant Retained Upper and Lower Dentures
