Before and After Photos of Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Looking at before and after photos of dental veneers, Invisalign, gummy smile correction, teeth whitening, and other restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures can help Tulsa residents in a number of ways.
Allen is a business professional who was seeking improvement in his smile. He had issues with a large space between his two front teeth as well as smaller gaps on the sides. He felt this was affecting his business interactions and wanted to find an improvement.By using some very advanced techniques, I was able to close Allen's gaps and give him beautifully shaped and sized teeth that closed all of the gaps. Normally this would have required braces first, but using “instant orthodontic” techniques with porcelain veneers, we took care of Allen in 2 appointments.What a change. Allen is much more comfortable now in his business interactions.
It was time. Brenda tried to ignore the obvious. She told herself it didn’t matter. She didn’t want her to admit to herself how much she hated her smile so she just learned to hide it. Maybe you know someone like that. They smile but you never really see their teeth. Its amazing how people can compensate.Finally, with her daughter encouraging and supporting her, she came in for a consultation. After learning the possibilities of how quickly and easily her smile could change, she was ready to go.It doesn’t take much to see how her new smile will impact her life. Look how much younger and refreshed she appears. Her comment, “Why didn’t I do this sooner?”
This story is a tear jerker. Ashley came to our office after her aunt contacted a local television station for help. She had been in the foster care system after both parents ended up in jail. Raised with a life of neglect and abuse, Ashley was doing good just to survive. When her aunt gained custody, she found Ashley’s mouth to be in terrible shape. As well, Ashley was in pain from her teeth but also emotionally from kids teasing her about her smile.When I first saw Ashley she would not talk to us. We came up with a plan to help her but she was so withdrawn she wouldn’t participate in her appointments. Our plan was to do 15 root canals and completely rebuild her mouth with state of the art porcelain veneers and crowns.When the process was complete, Ashley still would not speak with us. She was protecting herself emotionally so tightly that she just didn’t know what to say.However, when we saw her 2 weeks after completion, we found a brand new Ashley. She had transformed in to a very outgoing teenager. She told us she was now happy, had new friends at school, could eat whatever she wanted, and it no longer hurt to brush her teeth. We all got hugs and thank yous for giving her a new smile.I think we helped to change her life.
Faye came to me with several complaints. She had cracks in her teeth, she didn’t like the color, there was a lot of wear. After talking with Faye we also found out she had a history of headaches. It was very noticeable after my exam that she did indeed have issues with clenching and grinding her teeth.In determining what to do for Faye, it was determined that full mouth reconstruction would be best. It could accomplish all of our goals while at the same time doing a “scalpeless face lift”.I was able to restore her to a position where her clenching and grinding stopped and her teeth were now beautiful.Here is an amazing difference though. Look at her face. Look at the difference in the shape of her face. Look at the reduction in the lines of her face. Look at her eyes. They really tell the story. She looks so much more rested and younger now.The scalpeless facelift? Well, it looks as if she has had one but now she won’t have to go back and have it redone in 8 – 10 years. This was a very, very happy patient.
Laura came to me with a multitude of problems. She hated her smile. She hated the color of her teeth and she had a lot of old dentistry in her mouth. I also found out Laura had been dealing with issues like headaches, bite problems, and muscle tenderness.When we determined the cause of her problems to be related to her bite, her esthetic plan then changed into more of a functional esthetic plan. Our goal was to give her pretty teeth but to also help get rid of her symptoms and headaches.Laura’s transformation was miraculous. Not only did she get a new smile but she felt better than she had in years. No more daily headaches. No more sore jaw muscles. She had so many reasons to smile now.
Melissa was a young, pretty woman that never liked her smile. She had considered braces but with her starting out in a new job, she didn’t want to look like a kid again. Even if she did have braces to straighten her teeth, she still did not like the shape and color of her teeth.In understanding what Melissa wanted, I decided to approach this with porcelain veneers with an “instant orthodontic” technique. This allowed me to not only give her beautiful teeth but also give the appearance that she had done braces.The results speak for themselves. A gorgeous smile for a gorgeous young woman.
What a sweetheart. Ashley is like the all American girl. Wonderful person. Great personality. Incredible heart. There was just one thing missing. She hated her smile. Ashley's teeth were not formed properly. They were small and had too much space between them. Even with orthodontics her smile would not be awesome because of her small teeth.The solution? Conservative porcelain veneers were used to fill in the spaces, correct the size and improve the color.Now look. What an amazing improvement. Now her smile matches her personality. You can see her beaming now.
