Case Studies

Case 1

Be aware of in-office made ceramic crowns!

This 65 years-young male from the TIME 100 Most Influential People in the World list visited us complaining of chipping and fracturing front teeth, and pain in the back tooth on the left side that had recently received a CAD-CAM in-office ceramic crown.
Etiology: The poorly made crown was putting excessive load on the tooth and forcing the law to shift to the right and forward.
Treatment: Replaced the bulky crown in the back and unaesthetic crown in front with all ceramic crowns and three porcelain veneers next to crown in the front. The appearance of other natural teeth improved by simple professional in-office teeth whitening.  The treatment helped jaw to reposition itself in its normal position.

Case 2

Previous implant treatment failed twice; devastated patient!

This 66 years-young female had an implant placed in the lower jaw by a careless dentist which then needed to be removed; the first time it was placed too close to the nerve, the second-time it was set too deep, which caused lingual cortical bone perforation. This can be life-threatening, requiring emergency treatment on an in-hospital basis. The patient was referred to us by another patient, and after proper diagnosis and planning utilizing Advanced Guided Surgery, the successful outcome was achieved and the patient’s trust and confidence were restored. The patient requested to have better healthier oral health and smile.
Subsequent treatments included: Invisalign, correcting the bite with ceramic restorations and four very thin ceramic veneers on front teeth, as well as simple professional in-office teeth whitening.
