This post shows before and after photos of a failing root canal, and the ceramic implants that the patient has now.
While it took a year to get him where he needed to be, this post features a VERY happy patient that received VERY conservative treatment.
I think most dentists would tell you that the teeth in these photos would all need crowns, but with the right tech, you can do large fillings.
After 3 failed surgeries at other dentists, Dr. Vane was able to place both a successful graft and a dental implant.
This patient had another dentist placed a very thick veneer to mask crowding on the lower teeth. Dr. Vane used Invisalign to correct the issue rather than mask it. The results are amazing.
A great before and after case study that highlights a creative way to use veneers and bonding to close gaps between teeth.
Another before and after case study here. See the chipped and worn teeth? These were all fixed without any anesthetic!
We fixed a chip on the edge and the gap in between. This patient was thrilled with the outcome! And almost no numbing was required!
This patient was unhappy with her smile. Now it makes her look 10 years younger! Check out the before and after photos.
This patient didn’t like the narrowing of her arch, and how everything looked shoved forward before. But it was perfect in just 12 months.
This patient had a small accident and fractured her previous crown into pieces. I made her a new permanent tooth in less than 2 hours!
This lovely patient was very unhappy with her bonding on the front teeth and the discolored lower teeth. See before & after photos.
I love being able to do one-day dentistry! This patient was able to get a root canal, crown, filling and cleaning in a single visit.
With this one tip, you can save thousands of dollars on dental crowns in your lifetime. Sometime in the future, you’re probably going to need a dental crown. If you’ve got a crown in the past, you know it’s not inexpensive or fun. But what really hurts is when you have to pay to replace…
This guy had a broken tooth, but started a new job in 2 days. No problem! He was stoked we could fix everything in one day,
This patient was congenitally missing teeth and wanted them restored for a landmark birthday! Check out the transformation!
This patient didn’t like his old veneers from another dentist. They were the wrong shape and size, and someone tried to correct his crowding by making the teeth overly bulbous to appear straight.
We were able to correct the veneers and give him a natural contour and color. He said he forgot what it was like to have teeth that “feel real”.
This case turned out awesome. It involved partial veneers, teeth whitening to correct tetracycline staining, and Invisalign. What a change!
I’ve been busy during COVID. Last week, 4 people with front tooth emergencies had the same story: Their regular dentist wouldn’t return their call.
This patient was too young to get a final implant, but she HATED her smile. In a few hours we moved her gum tissue up with the laser and milled a new tooth!
This patient had a removable tooth for a decade that broke on December 23rd. We milled and bonded in a non-removable tooth out of porcelain in one visit.
This patient wanted Invisalign for the sole reason of fixing his bite. He recognized that he was chipping and wearing his teeth.
But, we did it, and in less than the 18 months he was told elsewhere. Everything was completed in just 9 months!
This before and after case study shows a dramatic result from Invisalign in just 18 months.
What if you could see what having a smile makeover would look like, without a dentist even touching your teeth?
This patient was bothered about his smile for years.
Using a digital smile design, without numbing or even touching his teeth, we were able to produce this virtual smile!
This patient had a tooth on a retainer that broke.
She couldn’t get an implant due to spacing, so we bonded in a tooth that was affixed to the back of her two adjacent teeth.
No drilling. No numbing. No removable tooth!
Most people don’t realize that they have a metal allergy. They also don’t realize that standard braces contain nickel and the wires contain nickel titanium.
This patient had a severe inflammatory reaction to the braces from another dentist. She was probably told by the dentist that she wasn’t brushing enough around her brackets – when in fact it was due to an allergy.
This patient had undersized lateral incisors. Moonlight Beach Dental replaced them with 2 normal-sized veneers in 2.5 hours and with minimal anesthetic.
Gum disease, aka Periodontal disease, is the inflammation of gum tissue caused by tartar (essentially a calcified mat of bacteria).
Here’s how to prevent and treat gum disease.
This poor fella had some teeth crowding that was causing wear and grinding. After just 10 months of Invisalign, he looks like a new person. Both he and his wife are very pleased.
