The patient was unhappy with the dark shade and unevenness of her upper and lower front teeth. After years of staining habits, such as wine and coffee drinking the patient was ready for a change. 12 Lumineer veneers were placed on the upper and lower front teeth. The results are a natural, healthy smile that patient is proud to display.
The patient was interested in restoring upper front teeth due to large resin fillings between the teeth that had begun darken with age. The patient had also had begun to chip and fracture the edges of the front teeth causing them to appear shorter and jagged. The patient had his 6 front teeth restored with Lumineer veneers. The result is an attractive, whiter, longer tooth that makes the patient very happy.
After many unsuccessful attempts to restore the patient’s upper front teeth with resin (tooth colored) fillings the patient grew tired of the frequent replacement as well as the obvious discoloration present it was decided that replacing the fillings with full coverage crowns would be the best treatment option. 5 crowns were placed on the patient’s upper front teeth. The results are long term restorations with the durability to last many years.
Periodontal disease causes many patients to lose teeth due to bone loss. Many times multiple teeth must be removed due to the condition and the patient is given several treatment options for replacement. This patient chose to replace her missing teeth with a modern, all acrylic, flexible partial denture. The revolutionary material that the partial is made from is free of metal, meaning no unsightly clasps or uncomfortable metal framework. It is ideal for many patients, including those who have found they have a sensitivity to metal based removable partial dentures. The flexible, all acrylic partial also can be relined and repaired with ease and is stain and odor resistant.
This patient had a bridge across his upper front teeth that had been in place for many years. The supporting teeth were no longer able to hold the bridge in place and began to fracture, causing the bridge to fall out. Dr. Hendricksen restored the teeth with new bridgework giving the patient back the appearance and function of natural teeth.
Basic poor dental hygiene and higher than normal consumption of soft drinks and sugary foods led this patient to desire the restoration of all of his teeth with full coverage crowns. After the crowns were delivered the patient was given proper instruction on how to properly care for his newly restored teeth at home.
