Invisalign® offers patients beautiful, straight teeth without braces. Low-profile, removable aligner trays provide more flexibility and subtlety than metal bands and wires. Just as importantly, treatment can improve a misaligned bite, resolve headaches and muscle fatigue, and reduce future dental care.Read More »
‘Can you fix this one tooth? It looks terrible when I talk.’ Yes!!! We can do ortho or we can do it restoratively. Ortho (braces) is always a great option but it does require wearing retainers for the rest of your life and may not be worth it if there is only one tooth you want to change. The turned tooth collects a lot of stain on this patient (he likes coffee and red wine!) and he wanted a quicker fix that wouldn’t mean a lifetime of retainers. #cosmeticdentistry #veneers #estheticdentistry #smilesmatter #dentistrylife #porcelainveneers #estheticdentistry #restoringconfidence #lajolladentist #luxatemp
Here are some lower teeth, before and in temporaries. This patient had severe wear due to grinding so we opened up his bite and rebuilt his teeth in a more comfortable jaw position. The aesthetics were a bonus. These are no prep veneers where we just add material (ceramic) to his existing teeth. #noprepveneers #preplessveneers #sandiegocosmeticdentistry #cosmeticdentistry #luxatemp #smilemakeover #restoringhealth @dmgamerica @utahvalleydentallab
The updated and yet still natural looking teeth. The dark bands across her teeth are tetracycline staining from her youth (we don’t give developing kids tetracycline anymore!). She broke her front tooth when she was young also. And she just wanted to smile confidently. #cosmeticdentistry #lajolla #restoringconfidence #smilemakeover #smile #esthetics #estheticdentistry #sandiegocosmeticdentistry
Another smile makeover this week...the bottom picture is the temporary veneers. These are the blueprint for the final aesthetics, and an important part of the process. These are where we make changes based on what the veneers look like in real life on this face. #cosmeticdentistry #lajolladentist #restoringconfidenceinyoursmile #veneers #smilemakeover #fullmouthrehabilitation #minimalprepveneers #preplessveneers #luxatemp
The ‘shush’ Photo. When we look a ourselves, it’s usually when we are smiling. So we are often aware of what our smile looks like, which is usually the top 10 teeth. But when we talk, this is what others see. (Lots more of our lower arch!). So we ask patients to say ‘shush’ so they can see what they show in everyday conversation.
Another trial smile for our local patient. He’s unhappy with his current smile and is thinking he wants to restore his smile before he breaks any more teeth! Here’s his sneak peek... #virtualsmile #cosmeticdentistry #restoringsmiles #restoringhealth #restoringconfidenceinyoursmile #restoringconfidence #lajolla
