Is it hard to imagine what kind of results you might get from a particular treatment? That's understandable. We want to make it easier for you to imagine the possibilities, so we've collected several before-and-after images of real White Bear Smiles patients. You know what they say – a picture is worth a thousand words!
This smile was easily and economically improved with whitening, some contouring of the teeth and composite fillings. What a gorgeous result, and a great alternative to porcelain veneers (where possible).
This adult patient did not have the time or money for braces , but wanted a straighter, whiter smile for an upcoming reunion, and his job. For him, ZOOM whitening and 2 new front porcelain crowns more than exceeded his expectations!
These teeth were broken in an unfortunate waterslide accident. We were able to see her right away, and repair the teeth with composite fillings.
Not every tooth needs or should have a sealant placed, but in this case, you can see the very deep grooves and fissures. The sealant protects those areas from the plaque, bacteria, and acids that eat away tooth enamel and cause cavities.
Sealants are typically a part of children's dentistry in White Bear Lake and we often recommend them for children, but they aren't always just for kids. They can be a great alternative to a more invasive filling and can be useful for adults too, where appropriate.
This healthy and vital 90 year old hated her smile all of her life. Our cosmetic dentist in White Bear Lake used dental bonding and composite resin material to give her the symmetrical, beautiful smile she always wanted and we believe she deserves.
It is AMAZING and life-changing to see what a process called contouring and some filling material can do. She couldn't stop smiling!
For this patient, it had been years since she visited a dentist and she was very scared. She also does a lot of training in her job, and couldn't be without teeth. After a new upper denture and a lower partial (some of her lower teeth were still in good shape) she was very happy she made the first step of calling a dentist and her mouth is now pain and infection free. And she can smile again!
This patient updated his smile with new dental crowns in White Bear Lake, and look at the difference it made!
Dental crowns are ideal for repairing decayed, chipped, or broken teeth. A crown covers your tooth from top to bottom with a porcelain restoration that closely mimics a natural tooth.
You can see that all the cracks, fractures, and discoloration in his smile are now gone and replaced with natural and aesthetically pleasing porcelain crowns.
Our cosmetic dentist in White Bear Lake repaired this tooth with a simple composite filling to match the shade and contour of the adjacent tooth. This process is called dental bonding, and we can use bonding to repair many of the same concerns as dental veneers like chipped teeth, tooth discoloration, gaps and spacing, and tooth size discrepancies.
Now, this patient can enjoy an aesthetic smile while also eating and chewing with ease.
