Ann had tetracycline stains making her teeth extremely dark. She had existing porcelain veneers but the dark roots were showing through. In the lower arch, gum recession had resulted in spaces (black triangles) between the teeth. Dr. Brooksher placed new porcelain veneers. Gum recontouring also helped put new life into her smile!
Bob had a great deal of chronic pain with his teeth, with a history of broken teeth. He asked about having all of his teeth treated with root canals to ease his pain. Dr. Brooksher didn’t feel that he needed to go that far. But he did give him a full-mouth reconstruction with porcelain crowns and bridges to give him a harmonious, comfortable bite. This eliminated his long-standing tooth pain and gave him a handsome new smile.

Accidents happen. While some dentists would want to crown this tooth, Dr. Brooksher just did some conservative direct resin bonding to restore its original appearance.
Teeth come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Although Tommy was not concerned about the appearance of his teeth, the two central incisors were cracked and decayed and required porcelain crowns to strengthen them. Our challenge was to create two new teeth that looked like they belonged in this mouth.
My first choice in this type of case is braces. Special circumstances ruled out this option. The goal was to properly align the teeth, reconstruct the bite, and create a brighter, broader smile. This stretches the limits of restorative dentistry, but porcelain crowns on most of her teeth created a complete makeover.
Tara was unhappy with the color, shape, and position of her upper front teeth. Porcelain veneers and crowns revitalized her prematurely aged smile.
A case of poor tooth alignment that led to excessive and uneven wear on the front teeth. The teeth were restored and the alignment corrected with gingival recontouring and porcelain crowns.
Robbie came to us with 2 concerns: her teeth were getting smaller (wearing down) and she didn’t like the excessive amount of her gums that was displayed in her smile.A periodontist, John Legleu, reshaped her gums (smile lift) around the upper twelve front teeth and we placed porcelain crowns on those same teeth, giving her a dramatic new smile with a new alignment that will preserve the integrity of her teeth for many years.
Nick’s teeth showed severe damage from excessive wear. He (his wife) wanted a bigger, brighter smile. We were able to reconfigure his bite and repair the damage to his teeth with porcelain crowns.
There are several ways a missing tooth can be replaced. In this case, the missing lateral incisor was replaced with an implant and the two central incisors were restored with porcelain crowns. Braces helped her alignment and tissue was grafted to compensate for gingival recession.
In this case the upper left lateral incisor was congenitally missing. The retained baby tooth was loose and had to be removed; it was replaced with a Maryland Bridge (a new tooth was made and bonded to the adjacent teeth). Her teeth were bleached and direct resin bonding was added to the upper right lateral incisor.
There were problems here with the spacing, shape, and asymmetry. Tremendous damage is shown on the lower front teeth from poor alignment of the fit with the upper teeth. One tooth on the upper right was badly decayed and had to be removed and replaced with a fixed bridge. Rehabilitation was accomplished with porcelain crowns and the bridge on the upper front teeth, and reshaping of the lower front teeth.
Gingival recession and severe erosion on the upper teeth created structural problems that were corrected with porcelain crowns.
Jim was referred to us by a TMJ specialist to close the gaps between his teeth, correct the asymmetry in his front teeth, and repair the excessive wear on his incisors. Porcelain crowns were a good solution for him.
Travis wanted to address the decayed front tooth and the shape and spacing in his upper front teeth. Rather than doing a complete smile makeover, Dr. Brooksher replaced the problem tooth with a fixed bridge and rebuilt the upper left lateral incisor with resin bonding.
Jeremy was concerned about his broken front teeth and overall darkness of his smile. Porcelain veneers for his six front teeth were a good solution for him.
The fixed bridge spanning the four front teeth needed to be replaced. Implants were placed at both lateral incisors and the central incisors were restored with porcelain crowns.
Jason did not like the spaces between his teeth. The bite was out of line and some of his teeth were too small. Orthodontic treatment corrected his bite and closed most of the spaces. The upper lateral incisors were then rebuilt with direct resin veneers to restore them to their normal size and shape.

Chipped, worn, and discolored teeth were restored here with direct resin veneers on the six upper front teeth.
Christopher was not happy with the color, shape, alignment, and spacing of his teeth. We rebuilt his teeth with porcelain crowns, reshaped the gums (smile lift), and corrected the alignment of his teeth.
Unfortunately, because of extensive decay, broken teeth, and periodontal disease, the best solution for Tracy was complete dentures. A beautiful set of dentures gave her the smile she had been wanting for years.
We were able to help this bride-to-be prepare for her wedding by masking the discolored tooth with a direct resin veneer. Ready for the camera!
Carolyn was concerned with excessive wear on her teeth and the variation in color of her front teeth. We were able to restore the proper alignment and proportion to her teeth and give her a more vibrant smile with porcelain crowns.
Brent was not happy with the color, shape, and position of his upper teeth. He wanted a fuller, brighter smile, but preferred a natural look, not “artificially white.” We were able to accomplish this with porcelain veneers and crowns on his upper twelve front teeth.
Ben was frustrated with a long history of broken teeth. We opened his bite to reduce the heavy biting forces on his teeth and restored his mouth with a fixed bridge and porcelain crowns. We placed direct resin veneers on his lower front teeth.
Her front teeth were severely worn kown. Her gums were recontoured and porcelain crowns were placed on her upper 6 front teeth. 15 years later: her upper back teeth have been restored, and her upper front teeth are still doing the job!

This accident required immediate treatment. The tooth was broken, with exposure of the nerve. The tooth was treated with a root canal and the broken part was carefully replaced and bonded back to the rest of the tooth.

This young man was not happy with the color, shape, and asymmetry of his upper front teeth. With direct resin bonding of his 6 front teeth we were able to restore his confidence in his smile. Notice how, in his after images, he is much less restrained, allowing himself to smile fully!
This young man was self-conscious about the appearance of his teeth and was hesitant to smile. The before and after contrast of his full smile demonstrates the confidence he now shows in the ease of his new smile. His treatment was done with direct resin bonding, without anesthesia, only to his two upper front teeth.
