Smile Makeover:
In this makeover Karen wanted a smile with larger, contoured, whiter teeth. The shade was chosen looking at the shade guide on the counter rather than up against her skin and lips. It is important to discuss color relative to skin tones.
Porcelain crowns were done throughout the mouth.
While both doctor and patient were delighted with the result, both doctor and patient agree that a half shade less bright would have been better.
Learning: Many people desire larger, more attractive, whiter teeth. Select color Next to mouth.

Partial smile makeover:
Betty had a limited smile makeover done to line up uneven, worn teeth and to replace older failing metal restorations. She was very happy with the color, contour, and re-alignment. Careful analysis and a preoperative wax up allows us to see when teeth can be aligned without braces. Preparation guides are fabricated to assist the doctor's preparation, which allows the ceramist enough room to make alignment in final restorations.
Learning: Misaligned, crooked teeth can sometimes be straightened without wearing braces. Note how straight the four front incisors are in the after picture.

Bonding can be used to change the shape, color, and size of teeth. In this case Katherine desired both lateral incisors, adjacent to the two front teeth, to be normal size rather then "pegs". First we picked a color.

All Porcelain crowns can be used to change, or enhance a smile. Marie had a reverse smile (incisal edges don't round down toward lower lip), and significant asymmetry. Her back teeth were not cosmetically ideal either. Marie decided she only wanted to change her front teeth. All porcelain crowns were placed on her four upper front teeth.
Learning: A partial smile makeover can be enough to satisfy many patients.
