Look through the cases below and please feel welcome to call us at 360-633-2377 to find out how you can enjoy a naturally beautiful smile too!
Porcelain Crowns and Dental Bridge
Patient presented with poorly fitting and outdated "bridge".
He was restored with a correctly fitting all-ceramic "bridge". What a difference!
Patient presented with damaged teeth from acid reflux (GERD).
Traditional crowns used to replace GERD damaged tooth structure protecting him from future tooth loss.
This patient had old failing silver-amalgam fillings combined with acid reflux damage and dental decay.
These teeth were restored one at a time due to finances over a year's time with All Ceramic Crowns. He will keep these teeth for years to come because of the investment he made in himself. Just think what we can do for you!
Patient presented with chipped anterior teeth/, and a yellowed smile.
Veneers placed on the anterior (front) teeth and used whitening to brighten her smile.
Eroded and damaged bicuspid and canine from high acidity and abrasion.
Teeth are strengthened by the addition of an enamel-like material (porcelain). These teeth will now resist the abrasion and acidity. Don't they look better?
Ceramic OnlaysOnlays may be either gold or ceramic. They are better fitting and more durable than a tooth filling. They only replace the affected part of the tooth and therefore are more conservative than crowns.
Complete Smile MakeoverIn the case below, our patient suffered from severely decayed and missing teeth. He could no longer chew effectively and was a bruxer (tooth grinding at night) which was making his condition worse. Dr. Gillespie removed all decay, restoring health to the teeth, and used crowns and implant supported crowns, allowing the patient to experience the full function of their new smile.
