The images below are actual patients of cosmetic dentist Dr. Russell D. Mann, DDS. Each image slide shows a before and after image of the dental treatment. The examples of Dr. Mann’s cosmetic dentistry include the following:
- Full Mouth Reconstruction with Crown and Bridge
- Full Mouth Reconstruction with Crowns and Veneers
- Implants, Implant Crowns and All-Ceramic Crowns
- Cosmetic Bonding to close spaces between teeth
- Porcelain Crowns
- Ceramic Veneers
Commonly referred to as “metal free” crowns can be very esthetically pleasing. With all porcelain crowns, the “black” line at the bottom of the crown disappears beautifully to give a very natural tooth appearance.
Cosmetic Bonding or “Bonding” is a very conservative way to enhance your smile by taking away the dark spaces between teeth or closing spaces between teeth. This procedure can often be done without cutting or grinding any of the tooth structure away.
Many times all of the teeth need to be restored due to wear, cavities, broken teeth, or poor esthetics. These procedures can produce dramatic improvements in the person’s smile and are often life changing.
With Porcelain veneers, beautiful smile changes can be made without the need for moving the teeth. The veneers make the teeth appear to have been moved into the correct position.
Patients 50 years and older often have problems with their teeth due to severe wear, cracks on their teeth, and a poor bite. Beautiful crowns on every tooth can solve their dental problems.
With multiple dental implants, patients faced with losing all of their teeth may elect an All-on-4, or Hybrid Denture to restore their smile. The treatment is complex but the results allow the patient to have their teeth removed, dental implants placed, and their new teeth secured all in one day. This procedure is commonly referred to as “Teeth in a Day”.
Poorly shaped teeth and old bridges can be beautifully restored to brighten and symmetrically improve the patient’s smile by using all ceramic (metal-free) crowns and bridges. When all of the upper teeth are restored to a brighter uniform color, the results are often dramatic.
Back teeth with cracks and Mercury fillings can be restored with tooth colored, metal free crowns. This is a common procedure and can often be completed in one appointment.
After an elective gum lift, the square appearance of old crowns can be improved. The results change the proportions of the teeth and create a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
Although not for everyone, there is a growing trend to have ultra-white teeth. With our CEREC technology, this procedure can be finished in a single office visit.
Severely worn and chipped teeth can be veneered to protect the teeth from further damage. This is often the case when natural teeth oppose porcelain teeth. These teeth can be very sensitive due to the missing tooth enamel. By covering the teeth with the porcelain, the sensitivity is eliminated and the teeth are protected against future wear.
Often patients will request a magazine "Hollywood" smile with crowns or veneers. This patient wanted an ultra white smile and due to her schedule, wanted treatment completed in a single visit. With Cerec technology this is accomplished from start to finish in one day. Many times these patients will be sedated as well.
Some patients seek dental treatment in foreign countries due to high cost. Very often, the treatment rendered is substandard. This gentleman had his teeth treated in Costa Rica and all of the dental work was failing. A full mouth reconstruction was completed by removing all of the crowns, removing the decayed tooth structure, and restoring all of his teeth and correcting his bite with new crowns. In addition, he is a saxophone player and instructor and was concerned about how his new teeth would affect his playing. He was able to "test drive" the shape and position of his front ...
The patient was very concerned about the appearance and health of her teeth. All of her teeth were restored with crowns to complete a natural, beautiful result. She also had a very high degree of dental fear and was able to complete her smile makeover with sedation dentistry.
As a very outgoing executive, the patient hated his teeth for years and would cover his teeth with his hand or wore a mustache to hide them. His case involved placing dental implants to replace missing teeth with All-On-4. His confidence is now off the charts and he can eat whatever he wants.
