Irina was born without 2 front teeth. She has been wearing a removable denture but she knew it was time to get something more permanent. She wanted implants. Using implants and porcelain crowns we were able to replace her missing teeth. She loved her new teeth and she wished she had come to us years ago.
Kevin volunteers in Old Town San Diego teaching large groups of visitors the history of the city. He started to feel that his smile was affecting him and the way people viewed him. He’s a great guy so I felt terrible that he had to hide his smile from people. With a set of porcelain crowns and teeth whitening we were able to drastically improve his smile.
Veronica came to see us only for a routine check-up. However, it became apparent almost immediately that she did not smile much. I realized that her front teeth were very short and eroded. It is always difficult discussing esthetics with patients that don’t bring it up themselves. I don’t want patients to feel bad about themselves or feel that I am pressuring them to do treatment in any way so I rarely will bring it up myself. I just knew that with a little cosmetic work her life would be vastly improved, more than she would know. I mentioned it to her, and it turns out she hides her smile and does not smile because of it. With only some upper porcelain veneers we were able to make a drastic difference to her smile and life.
Golden dreaded the dentist, but with some encouragement from his beautiful fiancé he mustered the courage to come in. Golden is a great guy and local surfer. He was getting married soon and his fiancé always wanted him to have a better smile. Yes for the wedding photos, but she also knew it would make a big difference in his life. Golden lost a tooth during a surfing accident and had an implant, however the crown on the implant was positioned poorly and the shade was completely off. He also had a lot of spacing and dark colored teeth. With a combination of porcelain veneers and crowns we were able to create a beautiful smile in only a few appointments.
Becky dreamed of a much brighter smile. Unfortunately her teeth were very dark, but with a set of porcelain veneers we were able to give her the smile she always wanted. She was absolutely ecstatic and it was a great feeling being able to make someone so happy.
Mina hated to smile and was very self-conscious of it. 3 of her upper front teeth were severely loose and protruded because of an injury when she was younger. Mina knew she would have to lose the 3 damaged teeth and entrusted us to restore her smile. Using a combination of clear aligners to straighten her bottom teeth and 3 implants we were able to restore her smile to even better than before.
Farhad has noticed that over the years his lower teeth have been crowding more and more and he really wanted to straighten them. He also wanted a whiter smile. By using ClearCorrect clear aligners and teeth whitening we were able to drastically improve his smile in about 4 months!
Antoinette hated her gummy smile. When she smiled too much of her front gums showed. This made her self-conscious and prevented her from smiling freely. Using a laser, we were able to remove about 4mm of gums and it made a huge difference to her smile. She had only minor discomfort and bleeding the day of treatment, and it healed in days. She was ecstatic!
Fuminari was visting San Diego from Japan. Naturally he decided to try surfing. Unfortunately a wave hit and the surfboard slammed into his face and broke a number of his upper front teeth. With a combination of fillings, a root canal, and porcelain crowns we were able to restore his smile quickly. We also performed a general teeth whitening to improve the overall esthetics. He was extremely happy and appreciative of the results.
Farzana broke her front teeth in an accident. As you can see the main challenge was to match the multiple colors and shades of her teeth. Using detailed photography and communication, we were able to restore her teeth beautifully.
Santiago is a very successful business owner in San Diego. He spends a lot of time promoting his business on television and at all sorts of public speaking events. Unfortunately he always disliked his smile. He always wanted to improve it but refused to go through the long process of treatment. One of the largest challenges was to straighten the midline. If you draw a line down the center of his face to his smile you can see that the midline is off by almost an entire tooth. Usually this requires years of treatment that Santiago could not do. So we used our creativity and we were able to reposition, reshape and drastically improve his entire smile in about 1 month! He was overjoyed!
Kristi was getting married in only one month. She desperately wanted a smile makeover before her wedding pictures. Using only porcelain veneers we were able to lengthen and brighten her smile in only a few weeks! She was amazed at the difference the veneers made to her overall appearance!
During Kevin’s whole life he felt like he had to hide his smile. When he was a baby his family struggled to come to the U.S. and he was malnourished which directly affected the development of his teeth. He had been saving for years and was finally ready to fix his smile. With a set of porcelain veneers we were able to make his smile beautiful! He admitted that he hadn’t smile wide in so long. As a matter of fact, he noticed that it actually took weeks for his smile muscles to gain their strength back. Now his smile is beautiful. His family and him are great people and it was an honor to help him.
Christine recently went through a tough divorce. She wanted to change her life. She had noticed that through the years her teeth have gotten darker and darker. By using porcelain veneers we were able to make her smile match her youthful energetic personality. Immediately after we finished you could just see her smile and happiness grow!
Darin really hated his smile. He had always wanted to fix it but he was deftly afraid of the dentist. He had heard a lot of good things about us, and built up the courage to come in. Using laughing gas, some light sedation and a soft touch we were able to relieve his anxiety. As a matter of fact he fell asleep through most of his appointments! We used a combination of porcelain veneers and crowns to entirely recreate his smile. He loves his smile and now he actually looks forward to his dental visits!
