Adult orthodontics and implant dentistry
Background/ situation: The patient was missing her upper and lower two central teeth since birth. Reluctant to have her teeth shaved to accommodate bridges, she never did anything to improve her smile. She was very self conscious about her teeth and avoided smiling.
Solution: We recommended moving her teeth into their proper position with orthodontics. We then used dental implants to replace her missing teeth and composite bondings to acheive uniformity of shape and color resulting in a fuller and more beautifl smile.

Single Implant and a few bondings
Background/ situation: Patient wanted the most long lasting solution for his failing front tooth and wanted to “upgrade” his smile with brighter teeth.
Solution: We recommended replacing his failing tooth with an implant, whitening his teeth and composite bondings on teeth that had exposed roots.
Dental implants are restorative options that help to preserve bone by replacing tooth root. They look, feel and function like natural teeth. They do not compromise adjacent teeth by grinding down for a bridge or securing a partial denture to them. They have excellent strength to handle chewing forces and restore full functionality.
For your convenience and inter-disciplinary treatment, our in-house periodontist places the “root portion of the dental implant in one visit. Healing time is six to eight weeks after which an impression is made for the permanent crown.
Dental implants may be the treatment option for you if you are missing one or more teeth or are wearing partial or full dentures.
