We live in a cosmetically-driven society, and as a result our patients desire fillings that not only function well, but also look good. This patient had some old, defective amalgam fillings and opted to replace them with a more aesthetically pleasing restorative material (composite).
When a relatively small tooth fracture requires fixing, we are able to use a mixture of composite filling colours to blend the intact tooth structure with the restorative material.
Anterior Esthetics – Chairside Veneers
We were able to transform her smile in one simple visit using aesthetic filling material to cover white spots (hypocalcification) and help perfect the overall alignment
Spaces between your teeth can be easily closed without having to remove any of your healthy tooth structure. We simply bond tooth-coloured filling material to your teeth and shape them to help achieve your desired smile line.
Anterior Esthetics – Lab-Fabricated Veneers/Crowns
We have all taken a tumble at some point in time. And sometimes our teeth take the brunt of the load and sustain fractures. Lab-fabricated porcelain crowns allowed us to restore the natural contours of this patient’s teeth, and blend them in naturally with her surrounding dentition.
Before having her veneers placed, Chrissy made every attempt to hide her discolored tooth. She’d even spend hours Photoshopping any pictures taken of her to conceal what she called her ‘corn’ tooth. Now this beautiful woman is smiling bigger and brighter than ever and carries herself with a newfound confidence.
This case was the result of a work-related accident that led to the loss of four teeth, in addition to fractured crowns and tooth chips. We were able to replace the missing teeth with implant-supported crowns that look and function the same as natural teeth.
This is a great example of how teeth can be quickly and comfortably aligned for an adult! Not only do his teeth look fantastic, they are also easier to keep healthy without his crowded teeth trapping debris.
Full Mouth Rehabilitation
This case shows how implants can restore an area that fell victim to infection and ultimately tooth and bone loss. We were able to train the gums to recreate a natural contour so that she not only regained function with her implant crowns, but also helped maintain her beautiful smile line

Although this case is still a work in progress, it is one that is dear to our hearts. We embarked on a wonderful journey with a young woman wanting to improve her dental health so that she could be a role model for overall health in her health care profession. She has overcome her dental anxiety and has become one of our most diligent patients in terms of maintaining optimum oral health. No longer does she shy away from showing her teeth – she is now sporting a healthy, confident smile that lights up an entire room!
This beautiful woman suffered from dark staining following chronic use of the antibiotic tetracycline as a child. With lab-fabricated porcelain crowns and veneers we were able to give her the smile she had always dreamed of, and she now radiates confidence.
