This patient had always been embarrassed by her gap between her front teeth, also known as a diastema. This gap can be closed with white composite fillings, porcelain crowns, or orthodontic work, such as braces or Invisalign. We decided Invisalign was the best solution to permanently close the gap. Her case took 4 months start-to-finish wearing invisible aligners at least 22 hours a day. These aligners are taken out while the patient is eating, brushing, and flossing. The final result was an amazing change from the beginning and the patient was extremely happy with it! If you have gaps, crooked teeth, or overlapped teeth, give us a call to schedule a FREE Invisalign consult! At Laurence Palmer DDS, we Change Lives One Smile at A Time.
A patient came to us with a smile he was not fond of. He features in professional videos and needed a smile that he was proud of. His top front teeth were crooked, uneven, yellow in color, and one in particular was an old crown with metal underneath that was showing through the gums, providing a dark unpleasing grey/black line. To fix these issues, we did 6 porcelain crowns across the top front teeth. During the process of making the crowns, we consulted with our dental lab for the best outcome on shape, size, and color, as this was a custom case. After only 2 weeks and 2 appointments, the patient walked out of our office smiling from ear to ear and flashing his beautiful new smile. There are many ways to fix crooked or yellow front teeth, porcelain crowns being one of those solutions. If you struggle with any of these problems, give us a call because at Laurence Palmer DDS, we Change Lives One Smile at A Time.

Broken Filling

A patient came to us with a badly broken down front lateral tooth. This tooth has had many composite white fillings in the past and requires a full porcelain crown to give full functionality back. The reason this tooth broke in the first place is that it had so many fillings, which, as a result, weakened the tooth due to lack of natural tooth structure. As a temporary fix, we patched the tooth together with a composite white filling material that is esthetic, but not long-lasting. A full porcelain crown is still required to fix this tooth fully, but for now, the patient can walk out of our office, smiling again because the tooth is no longer broken. At Laurence Palmer DDS, we Change Lives One Smile at A Time.

Crowns

This patient came to us from another country, here on a school visa, with badly broken-down and patched together front teeth. Back in her home country, she didn’t have access to exceptional dental care as we have here in the United States. Because of her front teeth, she didn’t smile much and wanted to be able to smile again without being embarrassed. Due to extensive decay on the 2 front teeth, we performed root canals, then did 8 porcelain crowns across the top front teeth. This process took 3 weeks start to finish, and the patient was amazed at the final result. We consulted with our dental lab for the best outcome on shape, size, and color. Due to the customization from the dental lab, we were also able to give added length to the patient’s teeth, as her natural teeth were very short, giving her an unnatural smile line. Full coverage porcelain crowns were the only way to fix the broken-down teeth as there was not enough natural tooth structure left to sustain white composite fillings. Here at Laurence Palmer DDS, we Change Lives One Smile at A Time and utilize the talented professionals at our dental lab in cases involving porcelain crowns.

Fillings

A patient came to us with a rather large gap between his two front teeth, also known as a diastema. These gaps or spaces can happen anywhere in the mouth but are most noticeable between the top two front teeth. In children, the gaps usually disappear when the permanent teeth grow in fully, but sometimes adults struggle with this as well. Braces or Invisalign can be used to close the gap, but that solution can take many months.
This patient lives out of state and was only in town for a few days, so a quick solution was required to close the gap. Dr. Palmer carefully placed white composite filling material on each of the two front teeth to close the gap evenly. This procedure only took about 30 minutes, and the results exceeded the patient’s expectations. The patient was able to go back to his home state with no more gap! If you have a gap in your front teeth, give us a call to schedule a consultation. We can review the options between Invisalign, white composite fillings, or even porcelain crowns.
