In many cases, the most conservative thing to do is to move teeth. This patient wanted to close the gaps between her front teeth but did not want to have crowns or veneers. We decided that the most conservative treatment would be with Invisalign to move them together.
Many esthetic concerns have underlying functional issues (such as grinding and wearing down of teeth). In the case below we were able to address our patient's esthetic concerns as well as her functional issues with crowns.
Sometimes implants are not an option to replace missing teeth. In this case, our patient did not have enough bone available for implant placement so we elected to do two bridges to replace the missing teeth.
Many of our patients have dentition with advanced disease where the long-term prognosis of limited remaining teeth is poor. Additionally, many of these patients do not want dentures. In these cases, complete rehabilitation with implants is warranted
This patient had large restorations in his front teeth that had been replaced multiple times. We decided to do two veneers as a more esthetic long-term solution.
