Look At Our Happy Patient’s Smiles

Veneers

Case 1

These are photographs of Dr. Chan’s patient. This patient had a naturally small lateral incisor (“peg lateral”). Dr. Chan placed a porcelain veneer on the tooth without further reduction of tooth structure (AKA “no-preparation veneer”).

Case 2

These are photographs of Dr. Chan’s patient. This patient was interested in improving the esthetics of his smile but did not want orthodontic treatment. In consultation with the patient, Dr. Chan decided to place four upper and four lower porcelain veneers to brighten his smile. We increased the width of his upper lateral incisors to make them more proportional to his central incisors and to close the gaps between his teeth. The lower veneers were fabricated to disguise his crowding and give the appearance of straight teeth. Photographs are for informational purposes only.

Case 3

These are photographs of Dr. Chan’s patient. This patient chipped her right central incisor. She was concerned about it feeling sharp, as well as the fact that it now appeared shorter than the left central incisor. Because this patient ground her teeth heavily, we were worried that composite filling material would not stand up to the forces of her teeth grinding. We decided a custom-shaded porcelain veneer on her right central incisor would be a stronger option to restore the tooth. Dr. Chan performed minor gum surgery to make the gum line symmetrical between the two central incisors. From the patient’s side profile, the right central incisor was originally set back towards the palate. Dr. Chan modified the emergence profile of the right central incisor to match the left one, making the two central incisors appear straight and even. This was achieved without removing any tooth structure (no-prep veneer). The patient was encouraged to wear a mouth guard at night to protect against further tooth wear.

Gum Surgery

Case 1

These are photographs of Dr. Chan’s patient. This patient was concerned about the esthetics of her smile as the colour of her front teeth were mismatched and she had a “gummy smile”. In consultation with the patient, Dr. Chan decided to perform a gingivectomy (minor gum surgery) to lengthen her teeth, making the height more proportional to the width. The patient decided against porcelain veneers and chose instead to have composite bonding placed on three of her front teeth to improve their appearance. An old crown on the patient’s bottom right hand side was also replaced. Photographs are for informational purposes only.

Fillings

Case 1

These are photographs of Dr. Chan’s patient. This patient required restoration of cavities and replacement of some old leaky fillings in preparation for orthodontic treatment. Dr. Chan placed direct composite fillings on her teeth.

Case 2

These are photographs of Dr. Chan’s patient. This patient was concerned about the gap between her front teeth and had decided against orthodontic treatment and porcelain veneers to close the space. Dr. Chan placed composite bonding on three of her incisors to close the space and improve the symmetry of her smile.

Immediate Complete Dentures

These are photographs of Dr. Chan’s patient. This patient had pain and infection around her teeth and was interested in replacing her missing teeth. After consultation with Dr. Chan, she decided complete dentures were the best option for her. She saw a denturist to fabricate her dentures. Once the dentures were ready, Dr. Chan extracted all the remaining teeth and delivered her dentures on the same day. These photos were taken immediately after her teeth were extracted.

Implants and Crowns

These are photographs of Dr. Chan’s patient. This patient had a history of trauma to his front teeth. Unfortunately this patient’s right lateral incisor was non-restorable due to root resorption. A periodontist extracted the tooth and placed an implant. Dr. Chan restored the implant with a porcelain crown, along with two more porcelain crowns on his central incisors.

Orthodontic Treatment

These are photographs of Dr. Chan’s patient. Prior to treatment, the patient was concerned about crowding in her lower teeth. She also had asymmetry in her smile as her upper left premolars were collapsed palatally and she was getting sensitivity in this area. Dr. Chan provided orthodontic treatment using Invisalign to align the teeth, round out the arch, and create the appearance of a broader smile on the patient’s left side.
