Before and After Dental Cases

Water Laser Decay Removal

This longstanding decay has turned unsightly but the thought of getting shots and getting drilled has been an excuse not to have work done on his teeth. In one quick pit stop using a water laser, the unwanted decay was removed without undue pain from getting a shot or the shrill of the drill on his grills. There is no contact, the laser leaves a clean sterile surface and tooth colored composite fills in the decay to erase the years of neglect. The laser doesn’t spread heat or vibration and is so focused that most patients feel no pain and leave with a fresh new smile. Ask us about laser dentistry and how it can help you.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers provided by Dr. Lim to treat a spacing in the teeth
Porcelain Veneer Restorations closed the unwanted spaces spaces between this young lady’s front teeth
while keeping the natural shading and color of her original dentition,
according to the patient’s desired outcome.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers provided by Dr. Lim to treat a spacing in the teeth
This patient had a tooth-arch discrepancy leaving spaces between most of the front teeth. Braces would not
result in small teeth being pushed together and altering the natural biology of the tooth spacing within the jaw.
After much research this patient elected to close the spaces with porcelain veneers creating proportionately
sized teeth as well as a brighter/whiter color. Natural teeth were whitened and veneers were matched to
the new lighter tooth shades.

Porcelain Crowns

The unsightly appearance of these old porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns were an unnecessary source of
self- consciousness for the patient. The gum line was reshaped with a Crown-Lengthening procedure
and all Ceramic Porcelain Crowns were used to restore the 2 front teeth.

Single Porcelain Veneer

This fractured tooth was restored with a porcelain veneer. Matching the two upper front teeth is extremely difficult.

Replacing porecelain-fused-to-metal crown

This is before replacing a porecelain-fused-to-metal crown on the upper right central incisor (upper front tooth on your right). To match the two upper front teeth is considered the hardest thing to do in dentistry. Size, shape, color of the tooth and color of the gums as a result of the underlying metal all need to be addressed. The New crown (right) on the upper right center tooth is now restored to it’s natural appearance.
