Contact Us Today!Dental reconstruction refers to rebuilding all the upper or lower teeth or both. Reasons for a reconstruction include replacement of old restorations, creating a more harmonious smile, supporting facial structures (especially for loss of vertical facial height).

There are many functional and esthetic advantages to restoring teeth in this manner. When finances are a consideration, it is often possible to provide completed treatment in stages.

Judi

The Challenge

judi-1Judi requested a fuller smile along with the treatment of her discolored teeth.

The Solution

Cheryl

The Challenge

cheryl-1Cheryl had been systematically and unconsciously breaking her back teeth and grinding down her front teeth for years. She wanted a natural and youthful smile to compliment her outgoing personality and appearance.

The Solution

cheryl-2The grinding down of the front teeth had created damaging forces on her back teeth. A “smile lift” procedure re-created a natural smile line with ceramic veneers. With guidance for the jaw now controlled by the new front teeth, the damaged back teeth could then be restored to health. The smile lift increased her facial height, taking years off Cheryl’s appearance and adding life to her smile.
