Rosemary's Before and After Dental Makeover


Beautiful Smiles are within your reach! Improvement in ones appearance can lead to greater confidence and zeal for life. See how Rosemary achieved her newly enhanced smile with the use of dental crowns.


                                       
Why was Rosemary a good candidate for these procedures?

She was motivated to improve her quality of life and her smile.  Her oral hygiene was good as well.

After
 
How did you develop a plan for treating Rosemary's concerns?

We always start with exhaustive records.  We determine the challenges of the patient's bite, teeth and the surrounding structures. We discuss the patient's concerns and goals and set forth a realistic treatment plan that takes into account the patient's budget.  In addition, a  discussion of the procedures involved and the physical and emotional tolerances of the patient. This may include fears and length of treatments.
Was her treatment out of the ordinary?

The treatment was extraordinary in that it involved rather large space between the front teeth. We discussed all options from orthodontics to close the space to going directly to the restorations (i.e. Porcelain veneers and crowns).  Consultation with our ceramics lab prior to treatment, which included a diagnostic wax up (i.e. a wax mock-up of the final restorations), revealed that a satisfactory result was possible without the use of orthodontic treatment.  This meant that treatment could be completed in several weeks instead of several months or a year. Significant savings were possible by eliminating the orthodontic component.
