Smile Naturally Again!

Dazzling smiles look natural and feel comfortable.

Why is it that these days you can’t tell whether someone’s terrific smile is a gift of nature or has been revitalized by dentistry? HamptonJ before full face missing tooth

It’s because fabulous restorative materials like porcelains and ceramics are used to create veneers, crowns, and bridges that are so beautiful and translucent that they look just like natural enamel.  A talented ceramist can recreate color variations in the restoration to match the surrounding natural teeth while at the same time altering the shape of the tooth.  These restorations are strong enough to withstand natural biting pressure and with proper care will resist chipping and staining.

The missing lateral incisor in this smile had been replaced for years with a removable flipper. (An appliance with the missing tooth replaced by a plastic one which, in this case, fit onto the palate and was supported by the remaining teeth and tissue)  Jazmyn wanted something stronger and more natural looking.  Dr. Julie Gillis has advanced training in cosmetic dentistry and is an accredited dentist with the American Academy Of Cosmetic Dentistry. (AACD)  She also serves as an examiner and the chair of the Written Examination Committee for other dentists worldwide that are trying to become accredited.

Jazmyn recently came to our office to permanently replace a missing tooth and to reshape her front six teeth with a more pleasing and uniform appearance.  Utilizing a porcelain bridge and conservative porcelain veneers, we were able to provide the naturally beautiful smile Jazmyn desired!
